Not much to tell today. Most of my evening last night was taken up by taking myself to see A United Kingdom, which I thought sounded pretty good and had gotten fairly solid reviews, but it just was not what I wanted it to be. I really wavered between giving it a B- and a C+. I finally settled on the former. I'm not going to give lower than a C+ just because people say I don't do that often enough. And the leads really were pretty good in it, and I was engaged and never bored. I was occasionally distracted, though, and it just wasn't a great film.

At least I didn't have to pay for it. I think I have enough left now on my AMC gift card for one more movie. That card came via an offer I got in the mail a few months ago from, of all places, Aetna, which provides my health insurance. I really thought it sounded like it could be junk or a scam, but figured it couldn't hurt. I was able to choose between all sorts of different companies for a $50 gift card, and when I saw AMC Cinemas as an option, I went for it. I was pretty surprised when the card actually arrived in the mail a few weeks ago.

I walked home from work, and had about an hour before needing to leave again, because the showtime was a bit later than the usual 7 pm showtimes I tend to go to on weeknights -- 7:45. Shobhit made an Indian dish for dinner. I spent some time on the computer in the bedroom before leaving. Shobhit briefly considered joining me for the movie and then decided against it. It's just as well; he would not have been impressed and thus I would have wasted that ticket money. I'd consider it more wasted on him than on myself. It gave me a movie to go see, in any case.

Anything exciting happen so far today? Not really. People on Twitter keep talking about the press's disappointingly tepid response to President Fuckwit's address to Congress last night. I couldn't be bothered to watch it. I could never stand to listen to George W. Bush speak; I have far less tolerance for this guy.

I'm seeing another movie tonight, I guess I could mention that. Shobhit will probably join me for that one. It's a free advanced screening of the animated feature The Boss Baby, which I'd never have gone to see otherwise. But, free is free, right? So that will take up my evening tonight. I'll have another free evening at home tomorrow.
