Gattaca

Well, here I am, enjoying my vacation, and hardly bothering to sit down and write the occasional word here. How utterly selfish. Anyway, since I'm on vacation, I don't have much to talk about. I started on Wednesday, and the past two days I've accomplished next to nothing, which is exactly everything I'd hoped for. I do have things I need to do, though, so tomorrow I'll need to start on those.

Tonight I watched the movie Gattaca, and I think that it's a good movie that I didn't really like all that much. I think I just wasn't in the mood for it. I was interested in what was going to happen next, and it's a well-constructed movie, but I just didn't really enjoy watching it. It's an unsettling movie, really—disturbing because it's just believable enough to maybe be true someday, and I've always found the "somebody pretending to be somebody else" plot to be sort of creepy. Movies and shows in which someone pretends to be someone they're not often don't sit well with me for some reason or another. But I don't un-recommend the movie to, you know, normal people.

Yes, you are a selfish bastard! How can you take time off from work and then just do nothing and NOT blog about it?! And you are enjoying this time off? Unbelievable. I'm just totally disgusted. ;P
