Still Plugging Along

Thanks to everyone who sent condolesnces. And yes, my $60 script notes is still very much in business (while I'm getting pretty good at it, if I say so myself).

I'm going to try and post more regularly, or at least as the whim hits me.

Yesterday the Oscar nominations were announced, and I have no quibbles yet. I haven't seen a bunch of nominated films yet (like The Fighter, Black Swan, The Kids Are All Right and The King's Speech) though I plan to.

I liked every single nominee for best picture that I've seen, so that's something. Finally caught Winter's Bone the other day on TV, and I thought it was very solid (not that it actually has a chance in hell of winning Best Picture).

I feel like I'm coming out of my funk. Haven't been doing enough writing, though I want to. I need to. Meanwhile, I'm trying to improve my health (I have type 2 diabetes and high triglycerides) by eating much better and exercising very regularly; I've dropped 3 pounds in the last couple of weeks, and my enthusiasm is still high.

So here's hoping this is going to be a good year for everyone.
