Monday we did movies. "New Moon" was very much of a piece with its predecessor; sparkly vampires are still stupid, Edward is still an ass, Alice is still cool as hell, and Bella is still kind of an idiot. But the thing if more fun than it is tedious.
"The Blind Side" is a de-mythologized Cinderella from the Fairy Godmother's point of view. It has a fair amount of football in it, and lots of people being Christian with various southern accents. Oddly enough, it all works. It is also the first movie all year whose per screen dollar average went UP in its second week of release, which is kind of cool.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I played dead. On Thursday and Friday, I went to work when I probably should have been home playing dead. I made it clear before I left today that I was taking a sick day tonight, and am currently drinking decaf Coke laced with brandy as a means of making it not hurt quite so much when I breathe.
I am on vacation next week. I suspect that I will spend most of it playing dead...
