The Better You Look The More You See

So, Rome Girl and I finally got around to watching Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

And, let me say, "Wow!"

It makes me want to watch Prince Caspian again. Just so I can decide which children's movie I like more.

That said, Rome Girl said that she thinks Snicket is better than Caspian, but she thinks she might have to see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe again and compare that to Snicket.

Which I guess means we are both trying to decide if we like child sized versions of The Odyssey (Snicket) or The Bible (Caspian, LWW) better.

As an agnostic, I feel odd coming down on Caspian's side.

That said, when I watched Caspian I cheered Reepicheep and booed Aslan.

Anyway if you haven't seen Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Netflix it now.

And if you haven't seen Caspian do the same.

We can't really be adults if we only ever watch grown up movies.


My shrink is back from vacation and I'm seeing her for the first time in almost a month this afternoon.

For some reason that makes me very, very nervous. I'm so used to seeing her two or three times a week. I have no idea what to say to her or what to talk about.

I'm out of my rhythm with it, which is odd.

I wish I wasn't so nervous because it's making it hard to get work done.

I feel like a basket of monkeys waiting to break out and hunt bananas.

Damage Inc.

"(The philosopher) was wrong," I told my shrink this afternoon.

"Really," she said.

"When he talked about coming to the two paths in the forest he shouldn't have chosen the path less taken," I said. "He should have burned the forest down and made his own, new path."

"Have you written that down anywhere," she asked.

"No," I said.

"You should," she said.

And, so I did.

Jailhouse Rock

Denver is building a temporary jail for the Democratic convention.

"The makeshift holding center, dubbed "Gitmo on the Platte" by activists, is located on city-owned property near Steele Street and 38th Avenue. Newly-installed security cameras guard the exterior, chain-link fences and barbed wire form cells inside."

So, remember delegates - those open container laws apply to you!
