Hey, guys. Sorry the blogging has been kind of weak lately, but I've just been really busy.
Last night I got together with Crackbass and Jackbart to watch Inferno, a "horror" movie from 1980 by artsy Italian phenom Dario Argento. IMDB had this to say by way of description about Inferno, "Semi-sequal to 'Suspiria' has a American college student in Rome, and his sister in New York investigating a series of killings in both locations where their resident addresses are the domain of two covens of witches. " This is probably my second or third Dario Argento film (I know I've seen Deep Red, and maybe another one as well, but I'm not sure), and I've just got to say that I don't really get them. They're not really scary, and typically they don't even make a whole lot of sense. I guess they're kind of good at evoking a dreamy, hypnotic mood, but mostly that kind of thing just puts me to sleep (quite literally, in last night's case). Anyway, if anyone out there is a big fan of Dario Argento (and someone must be because I keep reading about how great he is in different articles, and I know that George Romero totally dug him), I wouldn't mind if you posted a comment telling me why you dig him, because I just can't seem to figure him out.
Other from that, I don't have too much to report. Another large tree branch fell in my backyard, narrowly missing my house and fortunately missing Cassidy, who was out back at the time.
The new job is going pretty well, but it just doesn't leave me with a whole lot of free time for going out to lunch, blogging, and keeping up with all of my friends in and out of the courthouse. Hopefully things will eventually get easier in that regard.
The Astros play tonight, and I still am hoping that they beat St. Louis to make it to the World Series. Houston has done an admirable job within the past year of trying to care for Hurricane Katrina and Rita evacuees, and I think that the people over there deserve to have some fun and excitement for awhile.
That's it for now. To all of you people who I'm not getting to talk to as regularly as I should (in light of the new job), I apologize, but bear with me! It'll get better soon! Hopefully...
