|Oh, And I Have Apatow Issues...
Things I Learned This Weekend:
Right contact in left eye – Not bad. Left contact in Right eye – Way blurry. Net result: Bad. Swapping them back fixes the problem nicely.
I really liked the movie "Paul." Somehow I missed that it was written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who did the excellent "Shaun of the Dead" and the pretty good "Hot Fuzz." I had trepidations; I'm not a big fan of Seth Rogan. So every time I tried to write about this movie, I ended up going on about Judd Apatow and his "shlubby guy gets the gorgeous girl" trope, which always feels to me like screenwriters trying to write a better history for themselves, and wandering away from talking about the movie I actually saw. See, I did it again! Anyway. "Paul" is funny, I appreciated the Star Wars/Close Encounters/Aliens references, and I'm really glad I saw it. Current Mood: calm
|My Dinner With Hz
I like it when Hz invites me to eat dinner with her. Her parents haven't always planned on another adult joining in. I got such an invitation tonight, but I had a symbolic serving of quinoa and lentils, and it worked out fine. Hz is more interested in my company than how much I actually eat. She "helped" me with my last bite by putting her hand on my forearm while I raised the fork to my mouth (did I mention that she's Incredibly Cute?), and then promptly wanted to play. We drew for a bit, and played with her toy barn, and then she showed me that if I counted to ten, she could leap onto the stack of towels her mother was trying to fold. When we were done, she insisted on escorting me downstairs to my room, "so I wouldn't get scared."
She's pretty awesome, our Hz. Current Mood: avuncular
