Something occurred to me over the last couple of weeks, and finally today I bothered to check: Les Misérables on December 26th was the first movie I saw in a theater last year. The Cirque thing a few days later made for a total of two theater movies in 2012.

So now I’ve started off this year by seeing a theater movie. 2013 can only get better! It certainly can’t get worse than what I just saw, at any rate. I rarely bother writing actual movie reviews, especially when my ratio of positive to negative remarks is something like 3:5000, because that’s a lot of work and I’m lazy… so let’s just leave it at a futile plea for people to stop making books into movies. Or, rather, for people to stop making Tolkien books into movies. Or, hell, let’s just get really specific and plead for Peter Jackson to stop making Tolkien books into movies.

So before that wretchedness happened, I was working on my Texas Longhorn cowly paper, which is so boring I don’t have anything more to say about it. I should go back to working on it right now, but that’s so boring I can’t stand it. Instead, Jane Austen and WoW, which are always a good combination. Cows tomorrow.
