I was complaining last week about it being so cold and damp, but it's warmed up this week - I think it's probably doing to be in the 60s today. I also think it's supposed to get cooler again soon, though.

I had a massive sinus headache all day yesterday and it seems to be coming back today. There must be some serious pollen in the air, or something, because everybody is sick. There were four people (out of ten) in the office yesterday, and two of those four were sick. Everybody is here today but they are all sneezing and sniffling and dragging around.


We didn't do much over the weekend. I played a lot of GuildWars. We did go to see Juno, which I ended up liking a lot. Rob did too. [personal profile] ursulahitlerand I had discussed in my comments that the clips we had seen didn't make either of us want to go see the movie very much, but then again, it got a very high ranking on rottentomatoes, and I have gotten where I rely an awful lot on those. Juno was running at 93% there, and that's basically the main reason I went. It did seem sort of overwritten and excessively cute at the beginning (first-time screenwriter syndrome, I imagine), but once it gets rolling that mostly stops. The girl's performance is mostly what makes it work, I think. Really extraordinary.

We have also been running our own little "Lost" season 3 marathon - we had stopped watching 4 or 5 episodes in, but we ended up with a copy of the full season, since my nephew told one too many people (apparently) to get him that for Christmas. And we decided since the new episodes were starting up, we might as well just catch up. And everybody who told us that season 3 perked up after those first few episodes was right. We have definitely gotten into it - which is just as well because we waited until rather the last minute to start this. New episodes start Thursday. We have 5 old episodes to go - I think we're going to make it.


Linkage:
The Martyrdom of Brad Will - this was originally published in Rolling Stone, apparently, but I don't regularly read RS and hadn't seen anything about this elsewhere either. I'm not sure if I have the intestinal fortitude to go look on YouTube for the video that shows the guy's death, though.

From factcheck.org: What is "middle-class," anyway?

Hmm, are Mac owners "self-satisfied" and "superior"? (Well, ok, I've already gotten mocked for even phrasing that as a question, but click through to the little chart, anyway, it's funny.)

Hey, Mel gave me a shout-out!

... So, "Juno" ISN'T just an overwritten quirk-fest that encourages teenage girls to have babies even though that's like the dumbest thing EVER? Hmm. Maybe I'll rent it sometime, but I've obviously got a big chip on my shoulder about the movie. I'm waiting for the afterschool special where a teenage girl gets knocked up, has an abortion, and then figures out how to use birth control responsibly. THAT'd be a happy ending, damn it. Enough with the pregnancy propaganda, already!
