there's always one who screams and wakes everybody up

I watched Secretariat yesterday. It was a very standard movie of its sort, but it turns out that I am easily charmed by the sight of a running horse, and can be persuaded to pardon heavy use of twee and disregard for facts.

I was instantly made very uncomfortable by his groom, who got the Magical Negro treatment, but then, Eddie Sweat was a real guy who was tremendously talented in his handling of the horses. I know people like that, who just get animals, and it does seem a little magical. So maybe Disney is not being lazy and racist? It was a fine movie, and I liked it, but I do wish there had been more horse stuff.

I've been trying out cell salts. So far I can tell you that they seem to have no effect on vomiting.

Harry Potter tomorrow night. I can't talk about it.

I'm soooooo jealous. What time are you going to H.P.? We have such a busy weekend and I refuse to get crappy seats or times so we have to wait until next week. I'm DYING!
