I went to see “Proof” today. And Jake Gyllenhaal is my new obsession. I’m so fickle. What can I say?
The movie is good. And I’m not a huge Gwyneth Paltrow fan. She does need to quit the ostrich-neck thing, though. You don’t need to stick out your neck everytime you yell at someone. It gets a little much after awhile. The movie ends a little prematurely for me, but it’s still good. Not really good. But good. I don’t know. There were moments where it just didn’t seem to be going anywhere, followed by moments of brilliance. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it wasn’t consistent enough.
What else have I done this weekend? Oh, I went over to Jill and Jay’s houes last night (more Lehmann cousins) and watched a lot of hockey and a lot of baseball (go White Sox!). Too bad the Leafs couldn’t do it and the Canucks did, though. Jill decided that we all needed to know what our Chinese astrology characters were and what they meant. I’m a dog. I’m loyal, cheer for the underdog, have irrational fears and tell little white lies to make all those around me happy. So now everyone thinks I’m lying everytime I talk to them lovely. I also learned how to play Texas Hold’Em last night. And this morning I was practicing on my computer as soon as I got up. What can I say? I get addicted quickly.
And last, and certainly least today, the Riders. What can I say? This is not the great team everybody thinks it is. It doesn’t have a go-to receiver nor a big-game quarterback. Those are givens if you’re going to win a Grey Cup. We’re not going to do it this year. Again.
Alright. I don’t have to work with my client tomorrow, or ever again for that matter. She has been reassigned to another worker. My supervisor and I aren’t sure what went wrong, but obviously something did because she never slapped any of her other life skills workers. What can I say? I’m special. So, with that in mind, I’m off to bed. Tomorrow’s task will be to find a dress for our scenes performances of “Faust”. It’s going to be a time-consuming job. Pray that I find one – soon. I don’t want to spend the next two weeks looking for a dress everyday. I wish we had a budget for costumes…
And on that note, good night!
