Oof. The gym is beating me up.

music: I'll comment on the presidential election in a few weeks.

But only because it loves me.

Two quick things:

1.) I give Gosford Park a B. The casting was great, and the sets were fabulous (with the exception of a few scenes that were way too dark; maybe this wasn't a problem in theaters, but didn't work right on DVD). But I'm pretty sure this did not need to be so hackneyed in telling the us vs. them story, and they could have given the servants a hell of a lot more nuance to work with.

2.) In New Mexico's first Senate race without an incumbent in my lifetime, things remain interesting. All 3 of our Congressmen abandoned their seats to run for it, and now one of them is out. Heather Wilson can go fly a kite for the rest of her career for all I care; it's no secret that I really loathe her. Nevertheless, it now means that my former Congressman from District 3 (who also used to be AG) will run against the quite conservative dude from District 2 in the general election. This shall prove to be interesting.

Not sure why, but I didn't particularly like Gosford Park when I saw it in the theaters when it came out. Perhaps I had too high expectations...Maggie Smith was frickin hilarious though!

Yes, Maggie Smith was kind of the highlight. Plain shirts are necessary to go shooting, she taught me. ;)

Oh my. I feel so out of it already. Finally have internets here at the beach, read your LJ, and have no idea who these people you're mentioning (Robert?) in your posts are.

But guess what? I'll be home Friday morning (9AM!) so we can hang out this weekend (yes??!?).

Hooray. I've missed you. I think this (3 weeks) may be the longest I've gone without seeing you since we've been friends (aka several years).

Robert and Michael are NCSU people that Adam knows; I barely knew them either. :)

But yes, I'm around this weekend, so call me! I have stories about CA.
