Back to work after a long relaxing weekend.

The boyfriend and I went and saw the Matrix sequel this weekend and I have to say that I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. I was sort of indifferent on the first movie - while I admired the concept and story I was wholly annoyed by the dialogue. Every time the character's opened their mouths a big hunk of cheese fell out. I still crack up laughing every time I think about Lawrence Fishburne reverently muttering "He Is The One."

Now with The Matrix Reloaded the screenwriters hit upon a nice formula - lots of cool action sequences, little dialogue. There was one highly improbable moment that had me choking back giggles, but generally speaking it was well worth the price of my matinee ticket.

Also went out to the bar with my best friend Sunday night and had entirely too much fun. Needless to say I was nursing a bit of a hangover Monday morning - nothing a pot of tea and a 3 hour nap couldn't fix.

I also finished up Point of Honour by Madeleine E. Robins, which I ended up really enjoying. Sent a review of it off this morning and it should be posted within the week over at The Mystery Reader.
