First Day of Spring

Today is the first day of spring. It's supposed to snow like a mutherfucker this afternoon, at least, that's what the local weather people are saying. So obviously, we will get maybe 1-2 inches. Apparently points north are being dumped on pretty hard. I would just love to wake up tomorrow morning and find a foot of snow on the ground. Everything is so beautiful when covered in snow, and I can't think of a better way to mask the abandoned houses along the road leading to my house than a hefty snowfall.

I saw the newest Wachowski siblings’ film (I say siblings instead of brothers, since one of them - Larry, I think - is the process of undergoing a sex change) this weekend, V for Vendetta. I really enjoyed it. The character of V was so cool - it was Agent Smith in a Guy Fawkes mask, and did he ever work that mask. Lots of explosions, conspiracy theories, and use of symphonic masterpieces. The fight scene at the end was just incredible. Natalie Portman was great, too, as V's little helper. If you liked The Matrix, and think the Bush administration is as scary as I do, then you will enjoy this movie, too.

The Sopranos was on last night. I guess that Tony is in limbo and imagining what he wishes his life was like, but he still almost had an affair. And has early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Edie Falco is incredible, and I've spent enough time in hospitals with the living and those about to die to know where she is coming from. It's almost painful to watch this play out, but I'm anxious to see what happens next week, because I have a feeling we will move out of the hospital and back into the other family.
