Where did everybody go?
No meeting; no coffee; no game; no movie; no rescheduled meeting. Everyone is busy or just not up to it. That's why this post is all about me (count the 'I's*).
I saw Up In The Air
which I liked. I like airports and traveling, and I liked the snappy editing. I think I missed something in the confirmed bachelor's speech to his new brother-in-law, but it served its purpose to mark the turning point in the story anyway. I also saw It's Complicated
which was poor. By the end of the movie the three adult children of the 'complicated' relationship are huddled together in bed crying and yet nobody is the bad guy. I thought there was a loathsome, despicable guy; but he was childish and comical, everybody loves him and ultimately he goes unpunished - so the movie didn't think he was a bad guy. I liked the children; I wish they had more story.
Emma-Jean's game of Lexicon
) has made it past Round L which proved to be the final round of the other Lexicon
game I played. Hooray! Emma-Jean has the unenviable task of herding the cats playing Eternity·8. Players constantly miss deadlines, turns now take a week, and I don't think there is a single rule which hasn't been broken. I am constantly amazed (well, on a weekly basis at least) that people selected for their creative output, who made an informed decision to participate in the project, can't seem to produce a hundred words in a week. Some Lexicon
games have a daily turnaround, or run concurrent rounds. So - you can blame them for making me think I could write in my weblog more often.
