Yesterday my friends and I threw a surprise going-away party for our friend Beth, who will be leaving to study abroad in the UK soon. It was a success! Not only was she surprised, but the party was quite fun - pizza, a field trip to Dairy Queen and Family Video, Fanboys, conversation. (Though not a Star Wars fan, I enjoyed Fanboys.)

My cousin Cheryl is getting married on August 30 to her high school sweetheart. It's so weird, in a way, but very nice. Time sure flies...

To say I've been slacking lately would be an understatement, so I'm setting aside at least one hour later to read, and another hour to write, or at least brainstorm. I need to find a way to conquer my writer's block.

First Look At Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus From Cannes. I don't know how many of you are Heath fans, but he's been one of my very favorites for years, so you'll be hearing a lot about this movie from me. I had a hard time watching this clip, but even though it's so short, I think it looks great.
