Here's hoping I can actually get to sleep at a reasonable time tonight, as I seem to have conked out on the couch for a good hour or so in the middle of the Pens/Fliers stadium series game. 

This morning I finished chapter two of my Access course; in the next chapter I start learning about queries.  I've had some ideas about some data at work that is currently being tracked via Excel that might be more useful in database form, but I'll have to think about it and run it by some other people (and probably get a little further into the course, so I can implement it myself). 

Despite the cold and high winds, Husband and I went out this afternoon to hunt Pokemon together.  We were very successful, and I think I added about six new types to my Pokedex today, including the last Gen 2 starter!  I also caught a really good Cyndaquil, which is now my buddy for lack of any better options.  There are just so many Gen 2 mons that don't have any evolutions, which is a little disappointing. 

The other thing we did today was go to see Get Out, which was really, really good.  Based on this movie and Keanu, I think Jordan Peele has a real talent for making movies that are highly entertaining, have moments of great comedy, and are still really emotionally weighty with something important to say.  The other people in the theater definitely seemed to enjoy it as well and applauded when the end credits rolled.  I'm still turning it over in my head even now, which is typically a mark of a good film.  Bottom line: I very much recommend it.

I honestly don't think I can get behind this announcement that The Hobbit movie adaptation is going to end up being a trilogy.  Can the story really support three films without just getting a whole heck of a lot weightier than the book ever did?  I saw the trailer at the theater the other day and it looks like they're heading in that direction, anyways.  I suppose I should just give in now and accept that the movie version is going to take a different approach from the book.  But I just don't know if this story can hold up to the epic-ness that was LotR if it tries to hit the same notes.  (Plus, we've already seen the grand vision that was LotR and I'm not sure I want to sit through nine more hours of that, particularly with Bilbo at the helm of the story.)

I'm sure they will get my admission money, at least for the first installment.  Beyond that, we shall see.
