Salt, Kids, Sailing


"Salt" is an espionage/caper movie, very much in the spirit of the "Bourne" films. The central conceit of the film takes a LOT of disbelief to swallow, but it is an Angelina Jolie action film, so who really cares? Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

"The Kids Are All Right" is pretty much an R-rated After School Special, heavy on the Alternative Lifestyles. The cast is great, the characters are well-conceived (though Annette Bening's Nic is one of the most thankless roles of all time). There are some hilarious moments, and some deeply touching moments, but the whole thing falls kind of flat. We didn't regret seeing it, but it is NOT for everyone. (Big surprise there: OF COURSE lesbian soap opera is not for everyone...)

I went sailing on Tuesday, first time since Texas, also the first time with the RAV as a tow vehicle. Everything went smoothly, and the wind was mostly co-operative. I was due for an un-reservedly positive sailing experience; in fact, I needed one. This was it.
