Yesterday I was at home sick just wallowing around with Paul trying to get some work done. Luckily I am much better today and getting a ton of work done, which is always a good feeling.
I am currently reading The Help for our book club and I cannot put it down/cannot stop wanting to punch someone it makes me so mad. Seriously, I think everyone needs to sit down and spend some time with this book because it is just so thought provoking/enlightening. It makes me so sad to think that just 50 years ago people were treated the way that they were in certain, if not most, parts of this country. It makes me want to scream. I highly, highly recommend you delve into The Help and see for yourself what I am talking about. I don't want to go into much more detail because we will be discussing it tomorrow night at Bodega Bar. If any of you girls out there want to join us, feel free to email me. You don't have to have read the book to come...because anyone can discuss anything with just a little bit of wine.
On Sunday I went to see Avatar with John and Neil. I cannot believe it took me so long to see it. It was so awesome. It just tickled my sci-fi/fantasy/romance/brain in a vat/green fancy. I cried during the movie twice, and hid it pretty well from my "dates." I am really good at doing that during movies. I don't know why but I never want people to see me cry in the theater...the only time I couldn't cover it up was during Marley and Me. I just cried and cried and didn't stop. Anyway...back on track...I realize this recommendation has been made many times over for several months now, but seriously, I think everyone should go see Avatar. Very entertaining. Even you regular people out there would like it (ahem Madeleine and Mary).
I am having some anxiety about what to watch on tv tonight. I really want to watch figure skating but I can't wait too long to watch lost before I start to get all twitchy wondering what Jack and Sawyer are up to. And, hello, has anyone seen that preview with Claire asking about her son??? See I am already getting to excited...I guess I will just have to take advantage of the DVR this evening so I can do both.
More on that later...
