recent reflections

I’ve seen several new movies recently. Probably the best has been Atonement. Apparently some critics have called it the most romantic movie since Titanic, which I’ll agree was quite sexy, but I think the association does the new film an injustice because it’s so much better. The soundtrack is also spectacular, incorporating the tapping of a typewriter into the main theme.

Other than that I’ve been feeling delirious most days. It’s an interesting feeling always being on edge, but in that fuzzy, where-am-I? way of being on edge. I guess it’d be equivalent to taking sedatives, or Nyquil. That stuff is like being hit with an elephant tranquilizer. No need to warn about operating heavy machinery or driving, I’m lucky if I can make it to my bed before passing out after taking a dose.
