Today I got the cold that M has had for the past week or so. I fought valiantly, but there’s really no way to live with someone without sharing each other’s germs.
Still managed to continue my holiday crash-course in Node, Express & Mongo – I’m at least to the point where I can read through this project’s existing codebase and understand more or less what’s happening, which is rad.
We went to a late afternoon matinee of Chris Rock’s Top Five, a movie whose good parts are amazingly good, but whose bad parts are lousy. Many of the actors are great, and the looser, more improvisatory scenes crackle with energy.
But there’s a lot of plot in this script, most of it kind of ludicrous, and it keeps getting in the way of the good parts.
Overall I’m very glad I saw it, but any recommendations I give will come with some caveats (particularly regarding the first 25 minutes or so).
Ate terrible Whole Foods prepared food. Went to bed & coughed all night. Merry Christmas.
