Relief and Horror

Today is the last day I work this year. How awesome is that? :-)

Of course, the time off is much needed. With how busy we've been lately a lot of things have slipped to the back burner, and hopefully I'll have an opportunity to do some catching up. There's plenty of cleaning up to be done around the house, I'm over a week behind on LJ (posting, reading and commenting), and the list of things that I either need or want to get done boggles the mind.

Oh, and catching up on sleep would be nice. And sex. :-)

On an unrelated note, we went to see I Am Legend last night. The ending was somewhat hokey and forced, but the rest of the movie was so strong that it really didn't matter. Will Smith had quite a burden to carry being the only human character in most of the movie, and he did so flawlessly. The deserted New York City setting was fascinating and believable. The story did such a great job of maintaining a high level of tension that it was almost uncomfortable to watch at times, largely owing to its refusal to fall into horror clichés and worn out "jump out and say boo" tactics. You wind up wishing for a monster to jump out of the shadows just to break the tension. Very well done.
