it's late

how late? damn late. too damn late.

congratulations are due Loren for knuckling down and putting forth a bit more effort toward his schoolwork. at the moment, as near as i can figure his GPA for the third quarter has only fallen to somewhere in the neighborhood of 2.607 (from the 4.0 everyone begins a quarter with), a marked improvement over the dismal 2.171 GPA of his last report card. he's got a long way to go to finish the school year- but i think he may be finally headed in the right direction. and i only had to beat him about the head and neck severely with a 2x4 for a few hours, threaten him with immolation and disembowelment twice, hang him from the yardarm overnight and send him subliminal telepathic messages nocturnally for a week.

in other words, by the time report cards come out, Loren will likely be sitting on a B- avg and i'll be ready for 6 months in a peaceful wooded location, seeking tranquility among others assimilating their own unique flavors of extreme personal trauma. don't worry- i'm not ready to put my head in the oven just yet....it'll take more than this to make me go Sylvia Plath on y'all.

watched The Governess tonight- i actually rented it specifically because it was the type of movie i never rent, just to "see how the other half lives" if you will....and now i remember why i give those others such a wide berth. don't get me wrong, i like Minnie Driver as much as the next guy, and her more histrionic moments, bordering on full-blown hysteria, were one of the fleeting, don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-them impressive qualities about the movie, which dragged itself laboriously through monotony after monotony.....but that's by no means an endorsement and be warned, this movie boils down to a total loss of your time. easily the worst movie i've seen in a long time. i've heard nothing but bad things about Van Helsing (except from Loren who absolutely loved it....of course everyone hated The Chronicles of Riddick (which i also haven't seen) and he loved that too) but it's still the next movie on my list, and i'm sure that after watching this totally garbage Governess flick, Hugh Jackman would have to jump off the screen and piss in my mouth to leave this bad a taste in it.

time to crash.
