So I have to admit that I have seen Napoleon Dynamite, not once, but twice, and really liked it. I don't think I'd like to see it again, however. Seeing "non-traditional" films is fun to do sometimes. I remember going to the Flicks once and seeing an Italian movie with English subtitles. It was called Il Postino. It was such a blast. Wayne I., if you're reading this, thank you for taking me even if it was only because you didn't have anyone else to go with.
This weekend, The Idaho International Film Festival is having it's 6th annual film festival. It looks really fun. You can watch movies, meet actors, eat popcorn, go to free workshops, and participate in after-film discussions and debates. The event actually kicked off Thursday night with a Gala at Bardenay's (love that place). But there are things going on all weekend. Check out the program guide. Movies are showing at the Flicks, the Egyptian, and Edwards Boise Downtown. If any of you readers have been to this before, I would love to hear your thoughts about it.

Another Dumb Factoid About Myself. This one pertains to being in Idaho and having a famous person say hi to you. Are you ready for this factoid? Ok...keep reading....it's coming............Matt Damon has said "hi" to me. In person. Outside the Egyptian Theatre. Not kidding you. Me. Amanda. Not the whole crowd. Just me. Here's a picture to kind-of prove it. I have one witness and his name is John. If you'd like to interview him about this, we can make arrangements.
Kidding about the free tater tots (in case that wasn't obvious.)
