I liked Moulin Rouge. While some parts gave me a headache, because there was so much going on at once, I adored the singing. Ewan McGregor has a wonderful voice, and I was surprised at Nicole Kidman's range, though I do wonder how much work the voice coach had to do.
I was also surprised at the chemistry between McGregor and Kidman -- there was much more there than I expected. To save myself time, because I need to sleep, I'll mention that the salon review
is the closest to my thoughts on the movie.
Speaking of sleep, I need to get up way too early tomorrow, to haul my patootie on the treadmill. I do this for two reasons: 1) I have a 9 am conference call, which means I have to be in by 8:30, instead of leaving my house at that time as per usual, and 2.) I can't get on the treadmill after work due to the magic tournament draft tomorrow night.
That's always amusing, and lasts most of the night; good thing we only do that when a new set comes out.
(the Other Heather) took possession of her house yesterday! I went over to help her measure it, and we ran into the most hick people at dinner. But she tells the story much better than I
Swordfish comes out this weekend. mmm. Hugh Jackman.
You know what's weird? I had the most frustrating day at work today (network blowing up, computer taunting me, working short handed, etc), and I was utterly grumpy. Then I went to my GRE prep course, and did some math problems and some tests, and I walked out to my car with a bounce in my step.
Yep, I'm certifiable.
