Dave and I went to see a great movie yesterday: "My Brother the Devil," about Arab kids growing up in a tough neighborhood in the London borough of Hackney. The Guardian calls it "muscular and heartfelt," and I would agree. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I won't relate the whole plot -- you can click on the link to the review for that. But I was impressed.
Suddenly there are all these movies we want to see -- we also want to check out "Argo" and "The Master." Why do movies always come in clusters?
Otherwise, yesterday was taken up by routine housework and my weekly sub reports for school. And this morning I had four teachers call in sick. That may not sound like a lot, but for a school the size of ours it's more than is typical at the last minute. What the heck is going on out there?!
