Tonight I watched a movie called The Amateurs on DVD. It's about a group of people in a small town who set out to make their own porn film in an effort to make some money. Think an American version of The Full Monty...except only somewhat cute, and generally boring. It stars Jeff Bridges along with several other notable character actors, plus Ted Danson (who plays a gay guy). I'd like to say that at one point, about 20 years ago, I thought Jeff Bridges was a fairly attractive guy. Now, he looks way too much like Beau Bridges, with all the face scrunching and overgrown eyebrows.

I got an e-mail today from an old high school friend who I hadn't seen since before I graduated (he moved away when I was a Senior). The internet is such a great thing for that. We knew each other from band (yes, yes...I was in band. It was an easy A), and I was glad to hear he still plays the drums and even makes money at it. I still think of him as a kid because he was a Freshman when I was a Senior, but now he's all grown up with a career and a wife and everything. It's funny how that happens.
