01:35 pm - ...and more travel...
Our team is ranked 19/24 for the crossover schedule... which means we play against Tracy's team. We ended up tied, standing-wise, with Sock Monkey (who beat us on Saturday), so in a sense we are in the top of the Z pool. Woo.

After the season, and Agility I, ends, I'm now going on a brief vacation. Worked out the details with my dad this morning -- a long weekend (8-11 August) in New Orleans . We're staying in a new hotel on Bourbon St in the French Quarter, which should make for fun times. I've never been, and my mom is crazy about the city.

Otherwise, ommkarja moved the heart of her stuff (the cat) on Tuesday. An odd experience to going back to being time-accountable only to the dog. Took the dog to frisbee practice yesterday, on the notion that three hours outside was a reasonable exchange for a well-deserved romp. He didn't eat anyone on the team, was very friendly even, although he looked interested in several people walking by. Continue to watch Six Feet Under dvds, and finally finished American Beauty (the DVD that I was watching when the PS2 completely failed). The show is super excellent, the movie was overrated.

I'd most definitely agree on American Beauty. However, I was more impressed after the second or third viewing. Some of the subtleties are actually pretty snazzy. At least, I think so. Still not worthy of all the acclaim, but probably not worthy of all the criticism either.

I think I caught most of the subtlies, and that's what made me disappointed. There was really nice potential, and yet... it felt a bit too textured and yet flat. Perhaps I would have appreciated it more if I had not expected it to be detailed and subtle -- there was probably an unintented inherent pretention. Sort of like why I can't watch M. Night Shyamalan films ("ooh! look at how clever i am!")

I haven't watched more than we have together. And I plan to continue so, although if you just ignore me for the next week... :(

New Orleans definitely has its moments. Enjoy!

six feet under is excellent. I've been watching the series from the beginning with video on demand. I've certainly justified the $4.95/mo that costs.
