rue-madame's Diaryland Diary

Happy New Year!

I asked a friend of mine if I should see Sideways, and she said well, if you like movies about depressed middle-aged men, then yes.

Well I liked it, and Im not sure that Im a fan of the genre if indeed there even exists a genre called Depressed Middle-Aged Men.

This weekend I also indulged in a little Anchorman (terrible,) Knockaround Guys (also terrible. Not even the sexy angular Barry Pepper could lift the movie above Watered-Down Lame Gangster, a genre I cannot champion,) and Dodgeball (not horrible and oddly funnier than expected.)

We also bought games because sometimes a round of Scrabble or Risk or Boggle is more satisfying than Netflix and we live in a very boring place. The goal is to have a fully-stocked game closet la The Royal Tenenbaums.

In rotation on the nightstand:
- Friend of My Youth by Alice Munro
- The Rise of the Creative Class by Richard Florida
- Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

In rotation on the iPod:
- Spoon
- Super Black Market Clash
- Joy Zipper
- The Fall

Im going to SF in a little over a week and Im totally NOT READY. The truth is, Im never ready. Maybe 2005 will be the year I forgive myself for trying to do too much and then never truly accomplishing anything at all?

The truth is out there.
