Last night, this was the way it was supposed to go: a nice walk over to the House Containing People Who Are My Friends, watch Desperate Housewives, walk home afterwards, take a nice long bubble bath in an effort to remove the sore stiffness from my muscles, and go to bed early, lulled into slumber by my lovely clean sheets.
Galaxy Quest on TBS ruined everything. Got a ride home at midnight and fell asleep at 1:30.
But Galaxy Quest is SO GOOD. So I forgive it a lot of things.
And everything leading up to last night? Marvelous. Ultimate Frisbee and Waiting for Godot and the co-creation of an honest-to-God souffle. Great to see family, great to loaf for a few days and drink lattes and watch West Wing and write paragraphs of prose.
A Very Long Engagement was dense and challenging and not nearly as transcendent as Amelie, but that was probably for the best. I want to see it again and make sense of it all. I also want to grow up to be a homicidal prostitute hell-bent on revenge.
