Zack and Miri…

… and other entertainment.

Yep, that's how this week's been going, entertaining. Last night Beth and I went and saw Zack and Miri Make a Porno (the new Kevin Smith flick). This was rather entertaining (though I did find myself wondering whether or not the film was an experiment on how many times seemingly ordinary characters could use the word f*ck in a movie….). I enjoyed the fact that while the movie is rather formulaic it does use conventions for rather good comedic effect — it's like American Pie for a slightly older age demographic… as the characters are celebrating their 10 year high school reunion. Regardless it was an entertaining preview screening. It's nice to make it out to these every now and again. I'm going to recommend this movie to my brothers… It's definitely something like 40-year-old Virgin too. It does have more nudity (but for a movie about porno it's really tame).

I've been out to eat a few times this week, which just plain feels good. It's worthwhile to conquer stress by keeping busy though I really really ought to make a dent on my homework *yikes!*.

The halloween costume should work out great tomorrow. I can't wait to stop by the store (grocery shopping) just to see some of the costumes…

I spent an hour today fighting with the ridiculousness that is pension plans (user-friendly websites… such an oxymoron!) just to make mine less filled with fees (yay for that!). I'm beginning to appreciate the fee deductions that are inherent in my group plan though the fact that I lost a lot of money in the stock market drop might seem annoying on the surface — It's not as if I can touch this money anytime soon. I'm looking forward to finally having my funds make at least some logical sense. Other finances stuff has continued to be entertaining.

Now why is it that I can't make EVERYTHING work out? [stress release needed] Hey I've got chocolate!
