Bought comics (woo-hoo!), some late-Xmas-present books (plus Katharine Graham's "Personal History" for myself), and a couple of other bits of this and that.
Saw "Shallow Hal", directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly. This is a movie with problems, including poor makeup effects, weird pacing, a too-sincere tone, and, strangely, too good of a job done creating sympathy and regard for the main character. We really care about Hal and his travails, and so there are long stretches that are, while sometimes funny, ultimately as painful as a dentist's drill on a hot nerve. Additionally, much of the best material is in the trailer, so, unless you're really interested, don't bother with it (and if you were really interested, you've probably seen it by now).
Today's Link Of The Day is Leisuretown, another web humor site, this one with a slightly officey bent to it. http://www.leisuretown.com/
