1. I worked from home two days this week. My usual M.O. for working at home is that I set up 2 laptops at the dining room table. I work on one and stream movies on the other. It may sound ridiculous, but I can be incredibly efficient when I’ve got a movie on and no one interrupting me. I caught up on some of last year’s Oscar nominees, and have to say, that Birdman and The Judge were both exceptional.
I often do not watch movies about the law, because I spend all day living the law, and I don’t want it creeping into the minimal recreational time I have. Also, law movies also sexy-up the law beyond recognition and it is just silly. Law isn’t all that exciting, unless you are a super-nerd. (Admittedly, I am sometimes a super-nerd and get SUPER EXCITED when I think up some killer line of reasoning to argue in a brief.) The Judge isn’t all about the courtroom. It’s about family and drama and some of those very stressful and overwhelming ways all those things connect. Also, Robert Downey, Jr. Pretty much anything with Robert Downey, Jr. in it is worth a watch.
2. Speaking of delicious gentlemen, Ewan McGregor is in Pittsburgh filming a movie right now.
Come what may, Ewan McGregor, I will love you until my dyyyyyying day.
3. Also, Southpaw. Omg.
I think I had other things to say in this blog post, but I can’t even remember them anymore.
