I’m on vacation until school starts. My parents were here for 5 days, which was nice although it was a bit treacherous going out with them. I think they may come in warmer weather in future years. They left on Christmas, and since then it’s been a bit of socializing and self-care, which means finishing up stuff around the move (like hooking up up the recording equipment), sleeping a lot, and we’ve seen 3 movies in 2 days (a lot for me, nowhere near Carrie’s record). Waitress was too “other people’s problems” for my escapist state of mind but I could appreciate it as “a good movie” if not an enjoyable one. The Golden Compass looked kind of cheesey in preview but was entertaining and the anti-religious message was still present (yes, it’s softened but I’ll take what I can get) and I am Legend was slightly disappointing as zombie movies go. The zombies were too digital. I still think 28 Days Later is the best of the genre.
Oh, and my webhost says the changeover to the new server will happen at midnight, which shouldn’t be noticeable unless something goes wrong. . . .
