Today I didn’t even have to use my AK
I got to say it was a good day.

I went and did my interview thing this morning, and ran a couple of other errands on campus. After I got home, we drove out to the Reuse Center where Jeff talked to them about volunteering. We were treating ourselves to milkshakes at Cook-out when Jeff got called about a possible job. I got a small nap in, and I've done some knitting (my current big project is just gorgeous. And I can't post pics, because it's for someone else.) I've listened to some more Sherlock Holmes on audiobook. We've got homemade pizza and a little drinking and The Village lined up for entertainment this evening. Life is good. :)

So, we watched The Village, which I'd somehow not managed to see when it came out in the theater, unlike everyone else in the free world. Since it's an M. Night Shyamalan movie, you know there's going to be a twist of some variety, and I'd actually managed to avoid any spoilers about it. (I did the same thing with The Sixth Sense, seeing it like a year after it was out on video, and carefully avoiding spoliers. I liked it a lot more than The Village, incidentally.)

I didn't dislike the movie itself; it was well done (beautifully, in places) and I cared about some of the characters and it was suspensful enough in places that I was hiding behind a blanket, waiting to see what happened (unlike Signs - I jumped in a few places, but it wasn't the outright scary it'd been billed to me.) I disliked some of the people in the movie, and Collapse )
