Weekends, glorious weekends.

I spent Friday night at home, and made a concerted effort to stay away from my computer. I bawled my eyes out at the Biggest Loser premiere and had a nice hot bath.

Advance ballet on Saturday, then more chilling out.... basically all the chilling out meant I didn't spend too much money nor ate too much.

Sunday was a lingeree party at Sarrano's. I got my friend a torso/penis luge, basically it's a mold. Everyone cracked up, including the bride's mother and relatives. Phew. Everyone else just gave purple underwear.

Then we watched The Prestige. I thought Inception was much better, and I kept saying the movie was stupid, except that I'm still thinking about the movie right now. GAH.

Then we went to Uchiko, for my second austin restaurant week appointment. So lovely. We came home and both of us conked out and fell asleep at 11 pm. Early for the two of us.

I love unfiltered sake.

You didn't like The Prestige? What about it did you think was stupid? I've been telling everyone that one of the reasons I wasn't head-over-heels for Inception was because I was expecting it to be as good as The Prestige and I felt like it fell short. ;)

Well, it frustrated and bothered me on several levels. But I have to give that it's a great movie.

In the beginning, I had a hard time following since Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman looked quite alike to me. I know, but I read somewhere that people of other races find it harder to differentiate features of another race. But also I felt the director didn't spend enough time with each character for me to get a feel for them.

And the only way I could tell them apart was when Andy pointed out who the actors were, so I could say in my head: "Wolverine." Now "Batman". And the whole X is reading Y's diary about X's diary.

Once I got over that I followed the movie better. And then, I was like, waitaminute. How did Hugh Jackman know that Christian Bale was watching his copy die so that he wouldn't make his appearance?

And then I was like, why don't you just let your copy go free and enjoy life? I mean, if I accidentally made a copy of myself my first instinct wouldn't be to shoot me.

And the bird thing bothered me. So did the drowning copies.

But it is an excellent movie. I just find it bothersome.
