Finally Got My Chair Back From The Cat

The other night we, and another friend, watched a movie we had wanted to go see this summer mainly because everyone was in this movie. Rendition investigates a bombing in Northern Africa. Part of the investigation by the CIA uses a practice called rendition to basically kidnap a suspect and take him off to get tortured. Reese Witherspoon plays the wife of just such a "suspect." She has a friend (Peter Sarsgaard) who works for a senator (Alan Arkin). He tries to help her find her husband but there's only so much he can do. Meryl Streep plays either the head of the CIA or at least someone very high up and does such a good job being a bitch. Yes, the evil senator she played in the remake of The Manchurian Candidate was similar but she wasn't evil here. She was just good at her job.

In other news, I have a cold or I guess you could say that I have "flu-like symptoms" as they say in baseball. I haven't worked at the library for the past two mornings but I am going to do the dance group this evening because I can nap there just as easily as here. Well, close enough...

Speaking of baseball, I'm not going to discuss the absurdity of the Roger Clemens situation but I did want to comment on the Rays, as they want to be called now, considering talking with Barry Bonds...OK, I'm done... Oh, and the Sox signing Bartolo Colon to a minor league deal may have been a good thing like 5 years ago but now? Well, if he can stay healthy, it may turn out all right...

Finally, speaking of absurdity, I turn on Today this morning and Meredeth was interviewing the surviving members of the original cast of Murphy Brown. Now, this is confusing to me because the show aired on CBS and I'm pretty sure there was no connection to Universal either. It still bothers me...
