We watched Before Sunset last night, which I enjoyed quite a bit, though I'm not sure about the ending. But the dialogue was terrific, and the actors have tremendous skill and chemistry together. A pleasure to watch. Jed, if you haven't seen these two, put them on your list -- and I definitely recommend watching them in close succession. They aren't long, so you could even do it all on one night, if so inclined.
Ended up having a longish talk with Kev last night about emotional intensity, which is part of what the movies are about. Didn't come to any particular conclusions, aside from me wishing I could be a little less emotional/romantic, and him maybe wanting to be a little more. But I think really, we're both pretty content as we are...
Vaguely connected due to romantic content: I was delighted to find a copy of The Time Has Come, by The Billys, online the other day. It arrived yesterday and I'm listening to it now. Their song "Bread" is one of my most favorite romantic songs ever, and I'd lost my old copy of their CD -- for a long time, I couldn't find a new copy to buy. Yay for the net. Jenn, given our similarities in tastes, I think you'd like this CD a lot too. I also love "The Wheel Song," about love and recycling.
I have another job interview today, at 1:15, with Nebraska-Wesleyan. Aside from that, mostly just getting through e-mails and small household tasks; pick up a few more groceries, return a pair of shoes, update Kev's car registration, change our cell phone plans to one that'll save us a bit of money. That kind of thing. I finished reading the Karr yesterday; I think I'm going to try to finish reading another I got partway through a while ago, Carmit Delman's Burnt Bread and Chutney, a memoir about growing up Indian and Jewish.
I may start work on the nonfiction book -- I think I know what I want to do next, seeing if I can incorporate two pieces I wrote earlier (the race/dating piece and the historical piece) -- but no promises.
Tea and curry now. So good to be home. :-)
