2. I just splurged on a new winter coat. I always hesitate to spend money in quantities larger than, say, $20, but in this case it was worth it. I love the coat, they had my size, and it's something I was planning to buy during the rush anyway. Now I can enjoy it during more cold winter days. By the time I pay off my credit card, it will be rush. So, there. I even got $10 off because we had just received a Target gift card from purchasing this. So...yes, I spent a lot of money today, but I've managed to justify it to myself and rush money will cover Christmas gifts as well as a huge chunk into savings, so it's all good.
3. I did not run today. Sue me. =) It is COLD, and I got out of work late, etc., etc. Can you tell I'm great at justifying things to myself? Probably not to anyone else, but yes, it does seem to be a trend. Too bad I can't run in my snazzy new coat. But yeah, I was going to take either today or tomorrow off anyway. (Justify, justify, justify.)
4. The Alphabetical Movie Project soldiers on:
5. Antz5. I like margaritas!
I like this movie perfectly well, but as I recall it was more of a Mark movie (Mark movies are typically animated and/or of art or graphical interest, or else dark pyschological thrillers). Still, it is great fun, the voice work is entertaining, and it's nice to watch an animated movie that's intelligent and a little dark. That's one reason why I like Miyazaki so much. Antz is a little more interesting and complex than its counterpart, A Bug's Life. The Wikipedia article has some good info.
