Path Me a Tithue
Sorry about the lack of content around here lately. I had intended to get back on track in December, but my ass is getting kicked. The day classes ended and I finished my last presentation, my body said “enough”, my head filled with snot, and I’ve been in my pyjamas hacking around the house ever since.
I still have a lot of work to do over the holidays, but nothing’s getting done. Cakes is sick too and has been home from school all week. We are watching a lot of Thomas.
I did drag my sorry ass out yesterday though. My mom is in town for a couple of days, so McHotty and I seized the chance to see the Coen brother’s latest No Country for Old Men (adapted from Cormac McCarthy’s novel). OMFG, it’s so good. The acting is superb, especially Javier Bardem as the chilling psychopath Anton Chigurh. The dusty setting and the lack of music contribute to the theme of emptiness and despair. It’s perfectly paced, dark and tense, and true to McCarthy, the Coens resist a Hollywood ending. A+ for me.
After the movie we hooked up with the MBT gang and I drowned my germs in Hoegaarden. I actually felt good for the first time in a week.
We need to do this more often.
