The weekend was a hit all around. Chinese New Year was amazing - the food, the friends, the whole endeavor. I cannot recommend King Fung Garden highly enough. Don't be dissuaded by the fact that it looks like a dump from the outside (and the inside is pretty shabby too). The food was wonderful. Otherwise, the weekend was laid back and fun.
I watched Little Miss Sunshine again, and realized that a) it's a great, quirky, sweet and funny movie, and b) I have no idea how it got nominated for Best Picture. I mean, compared to the other two contenders I've seen (The Departed and Letters From Iwo Jima), it's a flyweight fighting in the heavyweight division.
I also finished Season 2 of The Wire, which wasn't as compelling as the first season, but still good. I ordered Season 3, which is where the show is supposed to really hit it's stride. It's an amazing show anyway, though it can get depressing in how realistic it is - the bad guys never really get caught, because the system is so fucked up it ultimately works in their favor more than for the cops. But if you want a truly gritty, realistic police procedural, you're doing yourself a disservice by not watching it.
And to wrap things up - some absolute lunacy. To quote Turkey Creek Jack Johnson : "I ain't got the words".... so simply watch it.
Yeah. It's like that.
