My terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

Okay, I didn't write yesterday as I was in a horrible mood. I'm not a morning person and when I have a bad morning, I usually have a horrid day. It didn't end so badly, though. The night before, I watched Losing Isaiah. That's a damn good movie. Halle Berry does a great job, in fact I think that was her breakout role (she's still good- see 'Monster's Ball' and 'X-Men' 1 & 2). I already knew it was going to be good, and I even had it on my Netflix, but it was on BET, so I caught it. I don't care for Jessica Lange, but I seem to see a lot of her movies. I saw 'A Thousand Acres' because I had read the book about a year before it came out, and I love King Lear, which the book was based on. The movie wasn't too good, but the book by Jane Smiley was great. Later, I read her book 'The Greenlanders' which was surprisingly good. It's about several generations of a family that lives in Greenland around the year 1100. You find out what day to day life was like for people at that time. I have a copy of 'The Age of Grief', but I haven't read it yet. The cover makes it look kind of depressing (as if the title didn't do that well enough).
