Midweek update

Today would have been my grandmother's 104th birthday. There was a time there when we thought she might actually make it.

The personal training thing is going well. I'm not finding myself in pain after the sessions, and generally any aches are gone by the next day. I have, however, picked up a slight head cold (not as a result of the training, I don't think). Maybe it's just sinus trouble.

We went to see Anchorman this evening. It was a dumb movie. Needless to say, I laughed my ass off at it. There were a few things that were just too funny. For one thing, the guy who narrates the movie is Bill Kurtis. Now, I remember Bill Kurtis as an anchorman in Chicago in the late 1970s (this was before he got hooked up with A&E and ended up providing about 3/4 of their programming). I always thought Bill was a little full of himself, so having him narrate a movie about a 1970s anchorman who was a little full of himself was a beautiful twist. And, the humor was a bit puerile and slapstick, which of course puts it right up my alley. Was it worth the sixteen bucks to go see it? Probably not, but we needed to get out of the house.

Up early tomorrow to bring the van in for servicing.
