Three Kings last night. I liked it a lot, though I probably would have liked it a lot more if we hadn’t had to keep pausing it – first because of phone calls, and then because Fred wanted a swim break. The pool was 62 last night, by the way, and it was raining rather heavily, but because he’d had a big dinner Fred felt he needed to work it off in the pool. Good movie, though wasn’t I surprised at the very end that David O. Spanking the Monkey Russell had written and directed it. For some reason, I’d gotten it into my head that Spike Jonze had; obviously I got it mixed up with Being John Malkovich. Which incidentally comes out May 2nd, and I can’t wait to see it. Fred just called and informed me that we’ll be getting a cable modem on Monday. We’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to get something faster than our dial-up access, and they finally made it available in our neighborhood. It’s $50 for each of us, but since we won’t need those ISPs or extra phone lines, it’ll all work out. Bargain, eh? Of course, I’m so clueless when it comes to that sort of thing, that Fred had to boil it down to simplest terms for me: "You know how fast everything is at work?" "Yeah?" "This will be twice as fast." Now that, my friends, is wickedly fast. Just in time, too, since I’ll have all that sitting-around-and-surfing time on my hands in a few weeks!
