In addition to 2 hours of weeding (bleh) and doing 2 loads of laundry and putting my Arizona pics in an album -

I read book number 30- something ... VERY disturbing.
After I finished, I googled it to find out more about his life. Can it be? That someone survives a childhood like that? How can you possibly turn out "normal"?

And if he embellished, as writers are wont to do ... is anyone from his past even talking to him anymore? Because the adults in his life all sound like nut jobs. Surely people can't be that cracked?

Anyway, like I said, disturbing. Hard to read once you get past the first third.

This evening, Max, Sam and I watched Babel. Which was tricky cuz of the Japanese girl's never-ending need to get naked. Max and Sam had to keep closing their eyes and turning their heads everytime her storyline came on.

I prefered Crash (similar style of having 4 - 5 gritty, separate stories tying together at the end) to Babel. And it pains me to say this, but Brad Pitt did a great job.

Max and I warpped up the night by watching The Prestige. I was left with so many questions at the end, that I just spent the last half hour checking out various online sources for storyline clarification. Like, was he a twin or clone? And did he shoot himself that first time?
Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Fresh air
2. BBQed salmon
3. Jasmine blossoms
