A fitful but amusing night of sleep. I awoke with a whole bunch of lingering procedural challenges solved, whamo, and a distinct memory of laughing hysterically throughout my last dream. Let’s have more nights like that, please!
The walk to school was wreathed by the smell of honeysuckle.
Though I enjoyed Sith, I also loved Anthony Lane’s review, best summed up in his Yoddaesque burl: “Break me a fucking give.”
Other choice slams: “The general opinion of ‘Revenge of the Sith’ seems to be that it marks a distinct improvement on the last two episodes, ‘The Phantom Menace’ and ‘Attack of the Clones.’ True, but only in the same way that dying from natural causes is preferable to crucifixion.” Or “What can you say about a civilization where people zip from one solar system to the next as if they were changing their socks but where a woman fails to register for an ultrasound, and thus to realize that she is carrying twins until she is about to give birth?”
