I'm meeting up tonight with a few friends from high school/university, a couple of whom I haven't seen for quite a while, one of whom I had a fight with years ago and didn't really speak to again until we had a bridge-mending conversation just last week.

We're just going to have coffee and chat or something. I'm looking forward to it.

I have a feeling that whortense will also want to go and see Gosford Park this weekend because Ryan Phillipe is in it.

I'm probably hanging out at home tonight but tomorrow night I will go to see a Hana and No Futuro show at the Crocodile Cafe.

Maybe read a philosophy book or re-read my Kabuki graphic novel. More likely help my mother with her errands. Probably waste time.

Just checking in today..

So, went and saw Gosford Park last night.
Wow! What a snoozefest! Amazing cast - amazing decor, direction, costuming, etc.. But everyone talks all at once and the sound recording is terrible! I know Altman is famous for this - but truly - for a murder mystery, when you're suppose to think about motives - how can you hear conversations when everyone talks at once. There are also evidently 32 speaking parts - most of which are not interesting, and so that's 32 names and characters you have to know (you don't remember most of them). The dialogue is so vague and hard to hear that you have no idea what's going on, and who is who.

Finally, it takes Altman 1 hour and 45 minutes to work up to the murder. That leaves about 30 minutes for the "whodunnit."
I won't give spoilers, but the result is a soft option. The murder is not the climax of the movie, unfortunately. I'm not sure if it had one.

As with any opinion, it's all subjective.

Hope everyone's having a good weekend!

A sore arm!
No, it's brown, like the henna ones, and it's six Chinese/Tibetan leaves. That makes no sense unless you can see my fingers drawing them in the air. About 4 x 2 inches, and swollen at this point. I guess we'll just have to meet up in Vegas again so I can show it off!
My tattoo artist is so DAMN hot! I have to put my hand on his leg whenever he does my arms...yum.

Update...

saw the Royal Tenenbaums tonight..
Was pretty good and much more shocking plot-wise than I would've thought.

Right now, I am drunk and playing my PS2.
What a life. What a life. teehee.

My weekend sucks so far. I'm bruised and battered and sore (me and my bike got nice and intimate with the pavement yesterday...), some idiot woke me up this morning with bass thumping out of his car for a good half hour, and I have to work till midnight tonight. Not to mention that a bunch of friends are going to Tahoe to ski this weekend, and I'm stuck here because of work.

But I need to keep busy and keep my mind off certain things or I'll end up a nervous wreck...

HelloAngel, there is one very important question that remains unanswered regarding Gosford Park: Was Ryan Phillipe hot in it???

This weekend just keeps getting better.

[rant]
Besides having a couple gashes and generally being battered and bruised from a biking accident, one of the bruises I got under my eye now looks like I got in a fight, cause it's basically a black eye. On top of that, I woke up today, sat up and nearly yelled from the pain. I must have pinched a nerve in my back, because there's no position that I can move where I don't feel the pain, and something as simple as putting on a t-shirt now becomes an exercise in pain control. Of course I still went to work because I really need the money. So here I am walking around extremely stiffly because my back is killing me, and because I'm not getting work done as quickly as usual, people give me looks like they think I'm faking it and/or just plain lazy. Nevertheless I stay till midnight doing work (the only other people left are 2 supervisors), and then ride home.

And here I am alone at home, while my brother and his fiancée are out skiing in Tahoe. Add on top of this the gigantic heap of confusion, worry and uncomfortable situations in personal matters (and the fact that I CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT IT - Aaaarggh!), and you have a recipe for one helluva depressing day. This is my life. *heavy sigh*
[/rant]

Pardon me while I go have a few beers...
