Ten things about being alive today

1. It's a smidge chilly in the basement. Ah, a window is open. Do I exert myself to shut it? Ehhhhh, I can't reach it.
2. Hayley has after-school art today. She loves herself some art. I wonder what she'll make today?
3. Paul has a track meet, but they will only run the top three, so he's going as an alternate. I want to go watch him be an alternate, but I have to pick up Hayley and I have to fake-child-sit.
4. My muscles are sore from exercising yesterday. I love this kind of sore. Stretching my triceps feels especially good.
5. I know this is drivel.
6. But I write everyday (nearly).
7. You don't have to read it if you don't want to. I won't mind if my viewership is zero. I just write drivel to write drivel.
8. Matt is getting taller. He still has a far way to go to catch up to others his age, but at least he is growing.
9. I watched Stranger than Fiction again last night. I just love the ending where Karen Eiffel narrates the bit about the little things that we think accessorize our lives, but in truth, those little things make our lives what they are (in her words, they save us). Must think about this more.
10. I know it is silly to find philosophic meaning in a rom/com.

I like to read your 10 things even if some of it just rambling. I, too, am a big fan of "Stranger Than Fiction". It is the small things in life, huh?

I LOVE Stranger Than Fiction. Every time I watch it, I want to be a better person (and writer). I love when Karen Eiffel is talking to Dustin Hoffman's character, explaining why she changed the ending: "Because it's a book about a man who doesn't know he's about to die. And then dies. But if a man does know he's about to die and dies anyway. Dies- dies willingly, knowing that he could stop it, then- I mean, isn't that the type of man who you want to keep alive? "

I have only seen "STF" once and loved it. I rarely see a movie more than once because I hardly get in the new movies I want to see. But I did love the narration and feel that that could improve my life. Good movie to see - The Soloist. Worth the $$!! I also enjoy 10-things posting. It is an easy way to say lots of little things without worrying if you really have enough for a paragraph.
