After two rather frantic weeks, this week seems to be offering me a bit of a breather. Last night, I decided that I was prepared enough for today to watch an ENTIRE movie. That almost never happens on week nights during the school year, I'm such a curmudgeon . I picked the movie that just arrived in the afternoon, so that also was inspiration to take the night "off". The movie, "In the Loop", while not the best movie I have seen recent, certainly had some very sharp moments and the writing at times was incredible. Some of the situations were hysterically funny. I won't say anything else about it because I don't want to spoil it, but I would recommend to people who like comedies of the darker nature.
Tonight, I will actually grade some tests. Nothing like the present subjunctive used with expressions of doubt and denial versus the indicative with expressions of truth and certainty! And throw in a few superlatives, such as "the most boring post ever"!
Michael's made a huge pot of black beans, so we'll enjoy an evening of rice and beans, a salad, an old 30-Rock episode, and lots of tummy rubs for the dogs.
If I can tuck into bed before 9:00 and read some of "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle", I will be completely content!
