(no subject)

Played some Rock Band with Chris & Bryree last night. I got to the point where I can (finally) do more than just focus on what note's coming next, which opens up some interesting strategic levels to the game. (Like, I invariably screw up and lose my multiplier whenever I try to activate star power, which means it makes sense to wait until someone else has activated it to use mine, so that I can at least boost someone who's actually scoring points with it...)

I went and saw How To Lose Friends And Alienate People with Mel & Sarah & Cara this afternoon. I liked it. It's definitely a matinee movie, but I'd still call it a 7/10 for entertainment. It had a lot more (really good) physical comedy in it than I expected, and it made me laugh pretty hard in a number of spots. We found a coffee shop across the parking lot and hung out there for a while afterwards, talking about it. I think that's an important part of the movie-going experience that often gets omitted for reasons of logistics.
