Quick check-in post:

I had a homebody weekend: at home Saturday, walking and bussing today. I've been exercising, and I confirmed that I've lost a few pounds that I could stand to lose. (I could stand to lose a few more, so: more exertion for me it shall be!)

I took myself to the 3-D presentation of Beowulf at Lloyd Cinemas; I'm still figuring out how I felt about the film. (The feelings will come out in a long entry, I can tell you.) Now I can read Caitlin's novelization. And the previews in front of Beowuilf included a 3-D preview of the film version of Neil Gaiman's Coraline that's being produced in my fair city; please, make this work make this work make this work...

After that, I bussed and walked to Hawthorne, and bought a couple of gift T-shirts plus groceries. And as for reading, I'm alternating between Peter David's novelizations of the Spider-Man films and the David Simon book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, allowing me to go between lighter and heavier.

As for now, I'll go to bed.
