true confessions

I have a confession to make.

Well, actually, I have two. The first is that I enjoyed Mona Lisa Smile. I went to see a screening of it for a thing I'm doing for the I**** T*****, and I thought I'd hate it, and yes, there were many cheesey and annoying things about it, but I kind of enjoyed it. I mean, I wasn't bored. Maybe it's just because I love Maggie Gyllenhal, but anyway, I didn't spend the entire time trying to see my watch by the light of the screen.

The other confession is that I am a bad worker. I have many books to read for work. And did I spend this evening reading them? No, I did not. I was reading, all right, but what I was reading was the first of Meg Cabot's Missing books (which are known as 1800-Where-R-You in America), which I got out of the library yesterday. I read it in one sitting. I was literally glued to my seat. So yes, when I should have been reading the new Colm Toibin novel about Henry James, I was reading about psychic teenagers. And I'm fairly certain that I chose the more entertaining option. But still. It means I don't get to leave the house tomorrow, and instead must spend the day reading dull things. Although I got the first three Missing books out of the library, which means the other two are sitting, unread, on the table...

i. um. enjoyed mona lisa smile, too, even though i felt i ought to know better. i went at christmas because my aunt wanted to go to a movie and i wanted to see my aunt (and get away from my parents :))

maggie & julia are two of my secret girlfriends, so that might have something to do with it :)
