Week in Review: 8/31/14

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Blue Jasmine - I'm normally not a huge fan of Cate Blanchett; I think she's a great actress, but I often find her cold and unsympathetic, even when she's supposed to be the warm romantic lead.  It feels like she starred in Blue Jasmine specifically to prove me wrong.  This was a great movie and she absolutely deserved the Oscar for it.

My Rating: 4 / 5

2) Popeye - Fuck this movie.  And fuck the Internet for telling me it had a good soundtrack.  Y'all are out of your damn minds.

My Rating: 1 / 5

Total: 2 Movies

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Born Loser - About two hours of writing.  Current length:  65,000 words.

2) About one hour of miscellaneous story planning.

Total: 3 Hours

The Winner:  Minutes!

I've been staring off into the distance a lot lately and worrying about miscellaneous obligations that are on my mind.  That's all going to go away once we have the baby, right?
