Quick movie update: "Cold Creek Manor." "The School of Rock." "The Rundown." CCM was okay. Just okay. Dennis Quaid was awesome as always and Stephen Dorff did a heck of a job, but something was missing still. More worth a rental. TSOF is awesome. Jack Black no longer has to steal the show as it's his movie, but he does a brilliant job as always. For a "kid's movie," it was really funny. "The Rundown" was a lot better than I thought it would be. One of the best action films I've seen in years. Pretty funny as well.

Not much been going on. Just trying to keep up with all the reading I have assigned to me. Have a paper and two tests for next week, so that should keep me busy. Not to mention, I'm supposed to finish breaking down the script for "The Conversation." Wish me luck!

My new electric kettle came yesterday. I'm more excited than I should be. Can't wait to make a nice cuppa. Heading uptown with Rome in a little while, so maybe I can pick up some PG Tips from Brits. Rock on.

Quick movie update: "The Hustler." "Matchstick Men." "Roger Dodger." Paul Newman. Sam Rockwell. Campbell Scott. Rock on.

It's a miserable day out, but I'm trying to stay indoors so it's not bad. Went out last night and had a bit too much to drink, so I'm feeling a bit "out of it." Haven't really been doing much but working and reading. Lots and lots of reading this semester. Trying to keep up and doing okay so far. Will try to keep up with the journal a bit better, I promise!

At the ARC, facing the eternal college struggle: reading. Not much else going on other than that.

Watched several films this weekend. Saw "The Order" on Friday. It was all right. It could have been much better, but something about it was a bit off. Not bad, but not great. On the other hand, I was fairly surprised by "Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star." I thought it would be absolutely horrible, but it was pretty decent. Worth checking out if nothing else is going on.

While putting my contacts in this morning, one fell out of my eye. I looked and looked, but couldn't find it. I might have spent a bit more time searching were it not for nearly being late for work. No big loss, as I was going to have to put new ones in tomorrow. It's just annoying as it was in my eye, but it just fell out. Odd.

Saturday night, I got to bed at 1AM. There was a fire alarm at 2:30AM. I had to stand outside for a half-hour. Needless to say, I went right back to sleep.

John made it back from Spain last night. Will speak with him today and find out about the debauchery... ;)

I think my mobile was delivered today as well. If so, will have to give Mom a call once it's charged for the initial fifteen hours.

Back in Lawrence after a quick Labor Day weekend back home in Ellinwood. It was great to see Mom. Wish I would have got a little bit more work done, but at least I finished "Antigone." Got to speak with John before he left for Spain. Put together a computer stand for Mom this afternoon.

Getting ready for bed as I have early class tomorrow.
