Day two of my morning workouts. While I got up at a reasonable hour, 7:30, I decided to have breakfast first and do some things around the house before stopping at the gym on my way to the office. Still, it was a morning workout, just not first thing. Tomorrow I have a physical therapy (PT) appointment at 11, so I'm not sure if I'm going to do the gym before or after. We'll see.
Last night I saw Slum Dog Millionaire. For the record, I was pretty convinced that this movie was a "critics" movie. You know the kind: The Piano, My Left Foot, Chariots of Fire, movies that are critically acclaimed but barely watchable for most of the viewing public. What a surprise!! The cinematography was just outstanding, the acting pretty darn good and the story itself was much more compelling than the synopsis I had read. Looking at their competition, on the surface, they should dominate the Oscars. Benjamin Button (nice storyline, but just a love story right?), Frost/Nixon (an interview??), Milk (c'mon, there aren't THAT many homosexuals in Hollywood are there?.....ok, I know that was inflammatory and insensitive, but it made me laugh), The Reader (did anyone actually see this??). There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of competition on the total picture side of things. Individual performances I guess could vary though.
Things I'm grateful for:
#91 Having lost my cell phone a few months back which provided the impetus for me buying my iPhone.
#92 The community that is my church. I only wish I took more advantage of what it offers.
#93 That Physical Therapists exist. They do a good job with all sorts of people, even when they are a pain in the ass as I can be sometimes.
