Thursday's Child

So, I've been trying to keep busy today in order to stave off a descent into sorrow and self-pity. I called Jeff from work and suggested we go see American Gangster.

Jeff: Why that movie? I want to see No Country for Old Men.

Me: No, I'm not in the right frame of mind for that. It will depress me. I need something entertaining but stupid. Must. not. think.

Jeff: And American Gangster fits the bill?

Me: Well, surely it does. C'mon. Ridley Scott? Denzel Washington? We'll howl!

And off we went to the 7:05 showing at the Alamo Drafthouse South.

Jeff (as credits roll): I thought you said it was bad.

Me: I could have sworn it would be. Goddamnit. Now I'm THINKING.

Jeff: You know how I hate to have my preconceived notions fucked with.

Anyway, tomorrow I plan to keep busy with getting my Thanksgiving pictures and video edited and online. Wednesday, who knows -- a Spurs game, mayhap?
