For those of you outside the DC-Baltimore area, there's a big pile of snow on the ground. It's thick powder, so pretty easy to clean off. But, lots of slow traffic, etc.

For those of you in the area that didn't have to drive anywhere today, I hate you.

Wednesday was a treat of a (healthy) dinner with Sailor Tork at the Jungle Grille in CP. After a failed attempt at getting coffee, we headed back to her place and watched Angel with Regent.

Also, I'm finally in an online Diplomacy game, thanks to Magistrate. I've taken over for an England player who wussed out after missing a turn. Hail Britannia!

And next week, I need to find a willing victim to hit Kangaroo Jack with me. Probably on Monday.

First movie of last night's double-feature was Dead Man Walking. It's pretty good, I can see why it got the awards and nominations it did. But it's certainly not something I am gonna rush out and buy on DVD, or even plot to see again at some point. The soundtrack, however, was surprisingly compelling. Oh, and I was looking for a movie with R. Lee Ermey, Jack Black *and* Clancy Brown.

Second feature was The Devil's Backbone which was *very* nice and foreign-ly creepy. Highly recommended. Guillermo del Toro rocks the house.

Did I mention we didn't get this ball rolling until nine because we were waiting to see Scrubs? Which, since we didn't check ahead of time, wasn't on, because NBC thinks we need two episodes of friends a night? Fooey.
