Yesterday I was exhausted, and aside from running out for an hour to the drugstore and the plant store, I pretty much crashed here and read. I finished Prep, which was well-written enough, and certainly reminded me of high school at Miss Porters' in some ways, but whose protagonist was so incredibly unlikable that I just wanted to grab her by the shoulders and shake her. She kept wondering why anyone liked her, and I had to wonder the same thing. Sadly, the book didn't provide me with much of an answer. I also re-read the latest Meredith Gentry novel, which was satisfying, but now leaves me irritated that I have to wait months for the follow-up.
In the evening, Kev and I ordered Thai food and watched The Chronicles of Narnia, which I thought was quite lovely, though all the faces looked a little weird to me, to the extent that I almost thought they were using CGI to deliberately make them look more alien. But no, that's just the way those people look. Liam Neeson did as good a job with the voice of Aslan as I think anyone could do, and overall, they managed to maintain the tone pretty well, even when some of the lines were perhaps hard to deliver. Kev and I did crack up when they crowned 'King Peter, the Magnificent!' :-) Generally, recommended.
Today is huge e-mail catch-up day. I am so behind, it has to be seen to be believed. I have a Voices of Resistance planning meeting at 2:30, and I need to pot the plants I bought yesterday once it warms up a bit. So it should generally be a fairly quiet, productive sort of day.
