i continued sleeping in the guest bedroom. so much for peace and quiet: this morning my upstairs neighbors must've been doing stairs aerobics. they were probably packing up for the holiday weekend because they didn't come back in the evening.
i stayed up late last night watching wild target (2010), a british comedy starring bill nighy, emily blunt, and rupert grint (of harry potter fame). it's a story of a master assassin victor maynard (nighy) who decides not to kill his target (blunt) and hijinks ensue. grint plays a drifter who gets mixed up in all of this when maynard decides to take him as an apprentice (after noticing some natural assassin-in-the-making skills). despite some bad reviews i read online, it's actually a very whimsical and charming little movie. the film starts off with a prolonged bicycle ride through rain-soaked london, so that sold me right away (there's even a ride through the gallery of the art museum, not sure how they negotiated that). it also boasts a killer soundtrack and i downloaded a few songs afterwards. martin freeman has a minor role as another assassin-for-hire; it's impossible for me to see freeman now without thinking of him as bilbo baggins in the soon-to-be hobbit movie. he has these very distinctive pearly white teeth in the film. rupert everett (with a face heavily altered through plastic surgery) also has a cameo role as a swindled art collector who initially sets everything in motion by hiring maynard.
i worked a few hours today, figured i had nothing better to do. i made a few code fixes to the quiz section.
i think i might go to bed early tonight. i've been sleeping progressively later and later, which has the side effect of waking up later and later as well.
