So I'm taking a suggestion offered to me. You'll see the results when results exist.

Saw "America's Sweethearts", directed by Joe Roth. It was pleasant. John Cusack continues to surprise me. The comparison I've heard made most often is to "Singin' In The Rain", but I can't comment on that, having never seen "Singin'" (owing to my utter distaste for musicals). But on its own merits, "Sweethearts" is a decent enough light, frothy comedy. (And it has Christopher Walken being weird.)

This is as good a time as any to mention that, after a pair of re-sees over the weekend, and "Sweethearts", the count is up to 62 on the year. Come one, come all, and enter the pool: Guess the number of movies I see in calendar 2001, win a prize. Send you entry to johnsmoviepool@aol.com

Bought some bread flour today and set a loaf to going. If things work out, there will be fresh honey white at 9:30.

Doc said today that Dad should be back in shoes (and out of the chair) by end of next week.

Was assisting in furniture browsing today when power outage struck. Thankfully, since it was furniture, and not, say, books, it was easy to leave without being searched as a suspected shoplifter.

Today's Link Of The Day is Red Meat. Red Meat is a weekly comic strip by Max Cannon. It's available for viewing in the print version of The Onion, as well as on the web. Red Meat is wrong, wrong fun. Bur don't take my word for it: http://www.redmeat.com
