Movies and Quiet Time

I had a pretty quiet weekend because a lot of my friends were out of town. I didn't go to any wild parties, but I hung out with a couple of friends and saw a few movies. I saw Eric Rohmer's "Autumn Tale," "Twin Falls, Idaho," and "Sixth Sense." All were very entertaining and worthwhile. I think it's great that "Sixth Sense," which contains no shoot-em-ups, explosions or car chases, has been the #1 movie for a month now. Maybe Hollywood will pay attention and give us more thoughtful dramas.

My roommate Shannon H. moved out a couple of weeks ago so she could live by herself, and now there's a lot of empty space. My brother and I spent the previous two weekends in College Station taking care of my dad, who has Multiple Sclerosis, while my mom was in Maine. It was weird coming home to a suddenly empty house. I'm still adjusting. Now I'm not sure if I'm going to keep looking for a new roommate, because I really want to buy a house, and I don't want someone to move in if I'm just going to move again in a couple of months.
