Should I schedule them? Are you bowling those nights?

Yes, but I was thinking I might skip bowling for at least one of them.
I think if you put any or all of them on the schedule, there would be interest.

I really enjoyed Life of Pi and wouldn't mind seeing another Ang Lee movie (Eat Drink Man Woman). I've not yet seen it and the reviews are very intriguing.

To follow up on the discussion we had following Tuesday's movie at the library, here is Wikipedia's explanation of the title's meaning:

Meaning of title

Like Water for Chocolate's full title is: Like Water for Chocolate: A novel in monthly installments with recipes, romances and home remedies.
The phrase "like water for chocolate" comes from the Spanish como agua para chocolate. This phrase is a common expression in some Spanish-speaking countries and was the inspiration for Laura Esquivel's novel title and it means that one is very angry. In some Latin American countries, such as Mexico, hot chocolate is made not with milk, but with near-boiling water instead.
An alternate interpretation of the saying "like water for chocolate" is to be like water that is hot enough to receive the chocolate (when preparing hot chocolate to drink). It is a metaphor for describing a state of passion or sexual arousal (i.e. 'hot and ready'). This would describe the bubbling passion Tita and Pedro have for each other throughout the book.
