Because I'm used to relying on intellect

Watched both O and American Beauty. Two very non-good hearted films. But I liked them both a lot.

O was as I expected. People had said how strange and violent it was. But it's Shakespeare, and I've read Othello so I knew a lot of people would end up dead. And frankly, I think it was very well done. I was impressed.

American Beauty was actually rather predictable. I knew the mother would have an affair. I knew the father next door was a closeted gay man. I was unsure who would end up killing him, but I knew it would be one of those two. Wes Bentley is awesome too. Very strong cast, and very intriguing film.

And! Martin Sheen in one, Allison Janney in the other! It was like West Wing!!! Just not.


I'm very happy with those movies. I don't feel like I wasted my time, and I feel as though I've watched something that didn't rot my brain.

In other news, Spring Break plans are going to end up like camping. I can tell already. Candace can't go a) without a chaperone (21 or older) [I'm thinking Fayanne might be available...] and b) if it's going to be co-ed...unless we get two houses.

*sigh* Fuck parents. They are so insane sometimes.

Also, I was hoping to get an email from mommy today. But she's probably busy, so I'm not going to worry about it. She's got plenty on her mind.

Now it's time for me to shower. Rob and Candace both want to do stuff we'll probably get a group together again. And Jason should be getting home at some point today.
