full life

(no subject)

1.  The only way last night's episode of "Lost" could have been any better is if it had come out today, February 29. 

2.  So that we could fast forward through commercials, we watched our Netflix'd copy of Beowulf.  You know what?  I thought it was actually pretty good; there were more than a few moments where I forgot I was watching CGI.  (That said, there were also more than a few moments where it was painfully obvious that we were.)  In fact, I liked it so much that I'll most likely buy it on Blu-Ray, whenever I get around to buying a Blu-Ray player (or I'll suck it up and buy it right now on HD-DVD as soon as Amazon slashes the price).  For whatever reason, Beowulf the book was never assigned to me in high school, so this was my first experience with it.  I had been thinking about picking up Seamus Heaney's (somewhat) new translation; I don't know that Beowulf is a book that needs to be read, though.  Hell, I still need to finish The Canterbury Tales.  (Or do I?)

That's all I've got for now.
