Fishy Circumstances

Dusty Books

I wonder how many libraries dust their books?

Today I worked on a journal numbering report for a journal on top of which there were several generations of dust bunnies. It inspire me to think more literally about the phrase "dusty old books".

Legally Blonde 2

Based on the reviews, I thought I should wait until this one came out on video. But then I didn't have a great day, wanted a few hours of escapism, and of the movies I was considering, this one had the most conveniently early starting time, so I went with it. It was so much better than what I was expecting from all the mediocre reviews I'd read. This doesn't mean it was an outstanding movie by any stretch of the imagination, but it was about what I needed.

I watched Legally Blonde (the first one) several weeks ago on DVD and liked it. In fact, it was while trying to play the same rental DVD for C. that all my computer's ailments came to a head, so he never saw it. The second one follows the pacing and event-types of the first fairly closely, but in a substantially different setting, so while an unobtrusive bit of my mind was observing what various major events were paralleling in the first, I wasn't bothered by it. I don't like what they've done with Paulette in movie 2 though. She had a much better storyline and more reasonable lines in the first movie.
