Happy Birthday, Fiona!! Even if you are in bed by now. Better late than never.
I can't wait to see party pics.
It's freezing in this house and I need to go make a fire. I have the Best of Saturday TV Funhouse but I'm not allowed to watch it til D comes home. I also have something I'm LOATHE to watch, but in the interest of fairness, I bumped it up to #1 while Netfuxers was shipping so I wouldn't be able change my mind. I've added it before and taken it off. I just have no desire and I think the making of these films was in poor taste and done too soon. But now that it has a Best Director nod, I'm forced to at least give it a watch, in the interest of playing by my own twisted rules. And from time to time I remember what my film criticism teacher used to say; basically, he didn't care if your best friend died from HIV the week you had to screen a movie about HIV. He felt it was the fillm critic's job to watch the film no matter what and be affected by it however you were. But you had to watch it. I try not to bitch about movies I haven't seen (unless they're the fucking stupid low-brow dregs of humanity type and then, frankly, I just don't care), but I just can't see how making these films was anything but a scam for money. I'm speaking, obviously, of United 93 and World Trade Center, the former of which is sitting in the kitchen.
Time to grab a beer and get this over with.
