Weekend in Review

Wednesday, May 28th, 2003

What a weekend – canoeing in the rain! Driving in the rain! Shivering in shorts at Riverfest watching Nickel Creek! Sharing it all with Tara made it somewhat less painful.

Monday DeLaine came over and we watched Hurlyburly which was really hard to watch so we stopped and watched the "Shoe Money Tonight" episode of Sports Night.

Crowe and Wilder

Thursday, May 22nd, 2003

It’s comforting to know that there are other people obssessed with Cameron Crowe movies. I just finished reading this book and now I think I’m starting to get obssessed with Billy Wilder movies.

From time to time I’ll offer juxtapositions for your amusement (and mine mostly).

Nothing To See Here

The best part is it pretends to have been written by Andy Rooney, who despite being a mean, clever old crank, is still a much better writer than this tripe:
