Oh, bubby babies. I wish I could say I got more accomplished today. I felt very busy, but my house looks suspiciously similar to how it did when I woke up, so somehow, I suppose I didn't get as much done as I felt I had.

The middle school has finally pushed me over the edge. No horror stories to report, just simple ineptitude, which is dangerous enough. I am strangely at peace. The time for hand wringing is at an end, and I've decided to just say, no, this is how it's going to be done, and if I have to write to every single teacher, every single night, I'm prepared to do so. What are they going to do - torment my kid - more?

Today was Cary Grant's 106th birthday, and you know what that means - TCM ran another marathon. *sigh* That man is the sweetest creature to have ever graced this earth. Mmm-mm. I only got to see Sylvia Scarlett this morning and a documentary on him tonight, but my if it wasn't just the fix I needed.

I finally switched over to my new Macbook Pro. It's lovely to work on a machine that doesn't get hung up every five minutes and doesn't have a big line running through the screen. I just need to transfer more of my good, good stuff and install some much-needed programs and I'll be all set. Yay.

How are you guys doing?

TCM's celebrating Katherine Hepburn's birthday today. Holiday, Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story all in a row. Heaven, m'dears. Heaven!

Woke up at 4:30 this morning feeling like I'd been run over by a truck. Wonderful husband returned home from the train station to help get the kids ready for school. He even drove them there and picked them up, because he really is superman. I spent the day huddled in bed napping and watching The Invisibles. I wanted Charade, because Cary Grant is the best medicine when I really need cinematic comfort, but I couldn't find my copy and I forgot that Netflix doesn't run on Macs. :( The Invisibles is a crappy show, so I didn't really find cuddly muddling to it that relaxing. The music in it drives me crazy, and the premise makes no sense whatsoever. Why would this couple move back from Spain for his health? Wouldn't a warm climate be better? And does that mean their daughter wasn't raised in England? Maybe I missed something crucial. But ASH is beautiful, and if I turn the volume down, the show is tolerable. The best part about it is Emily Head, imo. She's just adorable. Looks a lot like my best friend did at 19, which is kinda cool.
