cap, captain miss america

Highlights of today:

1) I went to see Casino Royale, which I did not like very well, I am sorry to say. I didn't think it was horrible, but I wasn't impressed and I didn't feel it stood up as a Bond film. I liked the changes they made to Bond as a character and I thought Judi Dench was great, but it felt kind of like a cardboard Bond-movie cutout, without the tongue in cheekness that is the saving grace of a lot of Bond movies. The opening credits were probably the best part of the movie.

2) My father emailed me a spreadsheet that contained a lot of confusing numbers. I was like, hmm. So I called him.

This is how the conversation went:

Tea: Daddy, what do all these numbers mean?
Daddy: I'm not sure. What numbers?
Tea: The numbers you sent me, in the email. It looked like it was contract rates, but I'm not sure what they mean.
Daddy: Oh. I'm not sure what they mean, either, I just had to get them out of my head. It's still pretty stuffed up.
Tea: Oh, how are you feeling?
Daddy: Well, my head's stuffed up. There's too much information in it.
Tea: Information? So you're...confused, not sick?
Daddy: No, I'm still sick. I've come to the conclusion though that head colds are what happens when your Hole of Knowledge gets stuffed up. So that prevents the free flow of information out of your brain, and your head gets stuffed up because there is too much knowledge coming in and no way for the knowledge to get out. And when you blow your nose, that's your body's way of trying to expel the excess knowledge so you won't be so stuffed up.
