Well, despite being ditched [*] by someone today, the evening wasn't a total bust.

I went to an early showing of Daredevil. It was a good movie. I was impressed. It's a trip to see how quickly special effects are improving year by year. I have to give Marvel Comics credit for doing a good job of translating some of their top books into good movies. It's your typical action movie, but I've always been a fan of how the Daredevil character is messier than your standard superhero. He's very definitely not "Superman" but he's still damn cool. I was pleased. I like superheroes with messy edges.

As far as the movie went. I'd say it's probably as good as Spider-Man. I'd say I'd give it a solid DS=9 in the action category. I read DD from time to time, but I don't know his history as well as I know that of some of the other characters in Marvel & DC land. Still though, I think the story flowed well and I think it makes the character accessible to the general public. I think this movie will probably make some silly amounts of cash and it'll prime folks for X-Men 2 & The Hulk later this year.

Anyways, after the movie, I came home, made dinner and started working on some house stuff. My folks said they'd be coming out tomorrow to see what I've done recently and to help me finish up the functional parts of the upstairs hall bathroom. Yay, hopefully by the end of this weekend I'll have a fully functional bathroom. Then I can start on the next one ;). I also got an unexpected phone call from friend+ C a little while ago. We caught up on things and talked for a couple of hours. In fact I missed the first re-showing of the Simpson's Bravo show because I was on the phone with her. Eh, it'll be on another half dozen times in the next week or so. She made my evening.

That was pretty much my entire evening. Despite some annoying things during the week and getting in a bit of an emotional funk a few days ago, I think that, on the whole this has been a damn cool seven days. Well, I'm setting up computer stuff so I'm going to go now. Hasta.

[*] - For future reference, I have no problems with changes in plans (particularly not when the other person is likely to get lucky), BUT it would have been nice to get a call, email, or message telling me that plans had changed, particularly if I had made a point of asking about said plans the night before. Bailing on one friend in order to hang out with another "friend" is total bullshit. I'd understand if I was getting ditched for a significant other or for some particular reason (if I was told about it), but just bailing like that is totally lame. If not for happening to read a fucking journal entry about it, I wouldn't have known that the plans had been scrapped. In case anyone is curious, doing that kind of shit is the best way to fucking piss me off and make me consider you a fucking loser and a flake. Note the use of swear words and remember how rarely I direct them at specific people.

That is all
