Weekend Write-off

Despite the heavy snowfall, the weekend wasn’t totally a bust. Got to hang out with some friends on Friday night. K+D invited us for dinner, consisting of a delicious (and spicy) stir-fry, some satay tofu, a really tasty (and not too sweet) fruit and lettuce salad. We got to see their new house, and the improvements they made subsequent to moving in.
Saturday was a complete write-off due to the lousy weather, although I was able to get R out to see “Sin City”. Neat film — really stylized, and probably the entirely expected outcome of having a film directed by Miller, Rodriguez, and Tarantino. Think of it as if “From Dusk Till Dawn”, “Kill Bill”, “White Heat” and Bruce Willis all got rammed together in a car crusher, then had someone desaturate the final mess, and hand it off to Ralph Bakshi for some final touches of sexism and cartoonishness.
Yesterday, we picked up a DVD of the “Lone Gunmen” TV series. Pretty fun series — too bad it didn’t last. It’s like Chris Carter suffered some kind of stigma when he tried to come up with anything after “X-Files”.
R’s been really sick this past week, and I’ve been trying to keep her comfortable. We’ve been trying to get at those outstanding chores, such as dishes and the never-ending pile of laundry. I’d like to get at some of the outside chores too, and maybe get the car fixed up for the summer. Looks like the rest of the week will be perfect for these things.
