Over the weekend we saw The Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. It was So. Good. I highly recommend it. It's one of those movies that's kind of better if you don't know that much about it, so I will not summarize. It turns out it's based on a Japanese novella called All You Need is Kill. What a title. M doesn't like Tom Cruise but my love for him is eternal and everlasting. I got so excited about Tom Cruise I watched Mission Impossible III on Sunday, pausing half-way through to browse the internet for pictures of Tom Cruise and Suri. Then for a bizarre 20 minutes or so I fantasized I was Suri and Tom Cruise was my dad and he held me in his strong, powerful arms and protected me from the glare of the paparazzi. I'm not proud of that. Then I put Far and Away in my netflix queue - another fact of which I am not proud.
On Sunday night M and I watched Her, which I also thought was wonderful. It really got me to thinking about consciousness and the body and I suppose I need to read some Alan Watts to follow up on all of that.
Right now I'm in Utah at a conference and I can't quite seem to get over the exhaustion of travel. I am So. Tired. Also it's really cold here. But, it's awfully pretty.
