Ok well I’ve been sick as of late, so this update is less than spectacular…
I finished reading “First Man in Rome” awhile ago. I wasn’t expecting to like it too much, because I’m usually not that interested in pre-caesar Roman history – but I was pleasantly suprised! I managed to tear through it despite the fact that it was 1,000+ pages… Almost every single character was *at least* mildly developed. There were very few, if any, flat stock characters, which is a refreshing change! It’s like a really good soap opera story, except better because 1) most of it really happened (the main characters are MAJOR figures in Roman history) and 2) you learn A LOT of Roman history without even realizing it!
this past weekend I turned on the TV and it was on the IFC Channel (i looove that channel) and a movie was just starting…. the movie was “C.R.A.Z.Y.” and I ended up watching the whole thing and making Eric watch it as well. It took place in Canada and was in French. The music was unbelievably awesome… from the classic rock, to the classical. The photography was unique without being flashy and annoying (i.e. 300). The best part was the HOT HOT HOT guy that played the lead role
