Meh

The Netflix disc we had in the house tonight was Silver Linings Playbook, added on the strength of reviews and Oscar buzz. We were, on the whole, unimpressed. The depiction of mental illness was deeply problematic, it was difficult to like any of the characters, and the ending felt almost entirely unearned. I think I am officially done with David O. Russell movies for the time being -- Flirting with Disater was great, and I remember liking Three Kings well enough, but I was pretty unmoved by American Hustle, and this movie gets a distinct thumbs down.

Today was, as planned, mostly laid back. The fact that it rained all day also helped inspire sloth -- we went grocery shopping (and bought ourselves a delicious rib roast, which we then cooked up for dinner), but that was about it. Just about right when I need to rest up for a concert day. (We will not talk about how much time I spent retweeting posts about current events and arguing with people on Facebook. I want to be active, but I need to figure out the best strategy for budgeting my time and attention.)
