Only a numbskull thinks he knows things about things he knows nothing about.

First off, I think my exam went incredibly well. I was quite confident about much of it, and while I'm certain to have gotten some wrong...I'm really hoping (and expecting) to get at least a B-. Though now I'm afraid I'll jinx it.

Second, The Hudsucker Proxy is fricking brilliant. I've been meaning to see it forever, and now it just happens to be on HBO Signature. Schweet.

However, Jennifer Jason Leigh (while very talented), is so forgettable. Every time I see her in a movie, I can't place her face and have to look her up. It's sad really, though I am quite looking forward to Margot at the Wedding.

Third, I'm kinda excited that Ron Howard and Tom Hanks are working on Angels and Demons. I know a lot of people didn't like The Da Vinci Code and CLEARLY the book is so much better, but I thought it was decent (if only for the awesome cast...Audrey Tautou, Jean Reno, Paul Bettany, Ian McKellen? Hells yes!).

Better yet, National Treasure: Book of Secrets opens in under two months! Yay!

Fourth, I finished up Emma earlier this week and have moved on to T.C. Boyle's Talk, Talk. So far, it's fabulous. He has a really superb writing style that is just enjoyable and engaging. Junior year, we had read his The Tortilla Curtain, which I also remember as being quite good.

Finally, I didn't get to see any movies today. It's just so depressing to go to a theater alone on a Friday. Perhaps come Monday I'll have plenty of time.
