Two brief updates today:

1. My story Light on the Water has been named a storySouth Notable story for 2009! That was a very pleasant surprise, and a great way to start the weekend.

2. Apparently I have decided that the way to go through the rest of the weekend is a complete Netflix tear. I have made a semi-cogent choice to ignore my pile of work to be done and instead buzz my way through as many movies as I possibly can in 48 hours. I left the house today, which was a tactical error, but I plan to make up for lost time tonight!

So far, in addition to movies I'm watching for work purposes, the winners this weekend have been "sweet spot" movies I first saw between the ages of, say, 10 and 13, which I remember just well enough to enjoy but have enough distance on to laugh my ass off about how bad they probably are. (Exception to this rule: Gleaming the Cube, which has vanished off the face of the earth, and which I am willing to bet is as awesome now as it was when I first saw it.)

P.S. I also saw Clash of the Titans. In unrelated news, some truly awful movies get made these days, don't they?
