Disappointed with Technology

So I got "In The Womb" from Netf.lix and I watched it over the course of a few days. It is not a long movie, I was just watching it in the interim of other things. If you have never heard of the Geo.graphi.c series, there are a bunch of "In the Womb" movies that show the development of a baby in the uterus from conception all the way up to delivery. There are a bunch of different animals, but obviously I got the human one. :)

I have to say I was a little disappointed with it. I requested it because a recently pregnant friend raved about it. I mean, it was cool to see. The 3- and 4-D ultrasounds were very cool. However, I guess I was under the impression that the camera had somehow been inserted into the uterus and I would be seeing actual footage of an unborn baby. I know that seems kind of silly to expect, but hey. I expect high technology and cool stuff from the folks at NG. Anyhow, the actual movie was computer generated imaging based on what was seen in a 4-D ultrasound. It was pretty cool, but as soon as the narrator said it was computer generated, I was bummed.

I am starving. My appetite is definately skyrocketing. I have been eyeing the bag of tootsie pops sitting on my desk, trying to talk myself out of eating anymore sugar. What I really want is a chiliburger and fries from Me.l's in good ol' SF. Fingers crossed that the hubby took the hint.

I don't know if you read my responses to your comments on my blog, but in case you don't, Bully Hill is probably about an hour and a half from the wedding. You're better off hitting up Seneca Lake, but from the West side of Seneca you can shoot over to Keuka (Bully Hill is in Hammondsport). Also, we'll have wines from Casa Larga at the wedding, so if you like those, you can also go there (route 31 west to Turk Hill Rd).
