Last night Xy and I took one of her students out to dinner at Venezia’s. We had pasta and pizza and then got desert at Angelo Brocato’s. After that we went to see The Golden Compass at the Prytania.
Caitlyn is very quiet and serious, one of Xy’s smartest students. In fact, Xy’s says Caitlyn is smarter than her — not bad for an eleven-year old. She’s the kind of kid who gives one hope for the future.
As for the movie, I enjoyed it greatly. It was far better than one might think from the many reviews that call it a mixed bag. It definitely requires a sequel.
Caitlyn said she’d give it a B+ or an A-.
