Neighborhood kids came knocking at the door this afternoon, asking if Smog was here and if he could spend the night. Haven't seen him but briefly since one o'clock this afternoon. I decided to treat myself to dinner at Rudolpho's, where I flirted unabashedly with the cute waiter (and tipped him well, of course, for putting up with me) and I think I'll go watch "The Time Traveler's Wife at the local theatre at 9:40 this evening, and cry as much as I like, if I'm so inclined.

Had a nice time at the city wide garage sale today. Found a few things I had been looking for, at reasonable prices, and avoided bring home a bunch of junk I didn't need, which is a huge step for me. I've been feeling super tired lately, so I decided I'd lie down on the couch and take a wee nap after lunch, but I forgot I had poured a glass of creme soda and put it on the table at the end of the couch. The cat, unfortunatel, found it easily enough and managed to dump it on my head. That's an awful way to wake up from a nap! I had just dozed off, too, and then I had to get up and clean up the mess and take a shower to remove sticky creme soda from my hair. Fun times!

"Misery" is on TV tonight. I'm watching it while I type and wait to go to the movies. It struck me, a moment ago, how when I saw this movie for the first time, I was just a young teen, and I thought Kathy Bates was fat and frumpy, and now I look at her and see not only her beauty and talent, but I sit and regret that I am far heavier than her. Amazing the diffence in perception almost two decades and a lot of life can give. And now it's the hobbling scene... is there anything worse to watch? It is somehow more horrifying than the Saw and Hostel movies and other "torture porn" movies of that type.

Just got back from seeing "The Time Traveler's Wife", and here are my candid thoughts:

Here there be spoilers. Don't read if you have any intention of seeing this movie. )

I suggest giving this one a miss.
