Well, things are back to normal here. Richard had two Truth meetings today, and fell asleep watching A Scanner Darkly. Sophie's begging for crackers, jabbing at my feet with her nose: "Hey. Hey. Cracker. Down here. CRACKER."

I'm poking along through Gravity's Rainbow. It's not really going anywhere significant, and I think it should have ended about 400 pages ago, but other than that it's OK.

I've been watching exorcism documentaries all night; for some reason they're on every other channel. I'm suffering serious Lost withdrawal. I think I might re-watch season one. Tuesday we'll be going to No Country for Old Men.

Yann Martel will be here early next month, the arrogant SOB, so I'll probably post something about him at Swallowing the Camel before then.

And now Sophie's stealing paper out of the recycling because I wouldn't give her a cracker...

Ooh, I want to see that movie - let us know what you think. I LOVE Cohen Brothers movies (if you sweep Intolerable Cruelty under the rug and pretend it never happened - it was just a bad dream, shhhh just a bad dream)

Just saw it. It almost makes up for Intolerable Cruelty. Well, OK, no, it doesn't - the Coens would have to sacrifice their firstborn to make up for that. (And now we must never speak of it again. It's like the Voldemort of cinema, That-Movie-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named)
