Phew!

Much furniture shopping happened this weekend. That's tough stuff. Ikea just plain wore us out. Compounding that, my bedroom is quite small, so figuring out what fits at all is a tough call.

Spent Friday night at a Teenagers From Outer Space game. This was great fun. Jen made herself an enjoyable character (or two). I made a mop-fu mouse who gets things wrong, but sounds very authoritative.

The film this weekend was The Fantastiks. It's based on the long running, off-Broadway musical. Much was kept. Much was changed. The story was kept mostly intact, yet much of the spirit was lost. With all the outtakes, I could see what the director was aiming at. As best as I can tell, someone was a bit overeager for a straight-forward, well-paced love story came in and tried to simplify the whole film by overediting. They succeeded, but altered the odd balance that the stage story used to succeed.
