full life

(no subject)

Back at work - for good - for the first time in a week; I got absolutely killed this morning with work, although that was just a coincidence and not a result of me being backed up.  This is the first time I've had 5 minutes to myself all day.

Kath is making great progress, even though she still is in pain and, more annoyingly, will be stuck in a cast for 5 weeks, not the 3 she had been told pre-surgery.  She's going stir crazy and the dogs will not leave her alone. 

We caught up on our Netflix Queue last week; finally got around to seeing "Network", which we'd had for about a month.  I'd seen it before, but it was Kath's first time, and I continue to maintain that it's one of the best screenplays of all time.  Certainly it's the most cynical, and I wonder if the people behind the Fox network got their ideas from this movie.  We also saw "3:10 to Yuma", which was pretty good up until the very end - there was a WTF moment that made absolutely no sense and pulled us out of the film entirely.  Also: "Helvetica", which was pretty and had a great soundtrack but was also somewhat bland and not terribly informative, other than to say that people in the type-design business can be incredibly pretentious.

Also played the hell out of GTA4, which I've incoherently rambled about here; I'm just over 51% complete.  As I haven't finished the story I can't come right out and call it the greatest game ever made, but unless they seriously fuck up the plot later on, it's certainly in the running.
