    finally enjoying my break
    I'm adjusted! No more pouting over the few days sans children. Beloved and I had a pleasant evening last night, low stress and much American Idol watching.

    Then we watched a movie, but I felt like an uncultured buffoon when it was just a little too far outside the realm of your typical movie to keep me awake. It was The Weekend, a film by Jean-Luc Godard. I feel like if it were just a wee quieter - a little less brash with the sound - I could have done it. The blood coursing down people's bodies, and the burning of cars and corpses really didn't bother me too much. I knew it was meant to be absurd. It was the NOISE of it all that made me say "ENOUGH!" I wonder if my tolerance for awful noises would have been higher if the movie wasn't following American Idol. A girl can only take so much in one night.

    Tonight we're going out. We are going to see an Oscar flick, and have some dinner. I have e-mailed Beloved with my proposals, and am awaiting his response. I proposed seeing The Queen after an authentic (so say the reviews) Taiwanese meal in Boston's Chinatown.

    We aren't able to see all the Oscar nominees prior to Sunday's show, so we're focusing on the Best Picture nominees. I believe we'll be able to see all except the Iwo Jima. Babel is already on DVD, and it looks like Netflix is mailing it to me today.

    I wish I could have seen Volver, and Little Children, and Notes on a Scandal, and the Pursuit of Happyness. And I now happily report that Notes on a Scandal is playing in my town tomorrow evening ... a night on which Beloved works late. It starts at 5:15. I may have to leave work a little early. But I think I can do it. It's a super-short movie, and should be over by 7. I believe I'm going to go!! Woo hoo!! I will then stop on the way home and get a Chicken Shawarma with extra garlic sauce for dinner, and then I will eat it while watching the American Idol returns, waiting for my Beloved to come home!

    On Friday night, Beloved and I should watch Babel at home. Either while gobbling up take out, or if he's in the mood - something he makes for me. It should be slightly celebratory, whichever we choose to do, since it will be the last day of work for me, too.

    Another woo hoo!!!
