Small Failures

Yucky Day
Today was a day of small failures. I slept poorly. I woke early but lay abed for hours. Does it count as sleeping late if there is no sleeping involved? I needed to make phone calls today and did not. Just couldn't move. I tried to take a nap in the afternoon. Sis woke me for an errand that didn't actually need done today, she had it in her head that today was Friday.

I've watched League of Extraordinary Gentlemen today. That is my second viewing. I really like the move. I keep catching references to literature. Yesterday I watched Underworld — also a second viewing. On the whole I was satisfied with Underworld. It had a "European" look to it which has both good and bad points. On the good side, the setting, the costumes, and the "look" of the actors was satisfying (rather "matrix meets frankenstein") and appropriate. On the bad side, the acting was not top notch, the story was adequate, and the plot had some minor flaws. I did like the whole concepts of a war between vampires and werewolves. Neato.
