Free-Floating Hostility

Missives from Domestic Life

As predicted, I crapped out out before Anna did when we threw the football during halftime of the Super Bowl. It was, however, harder to leave because Anna has improved her sprial and is now getting more distance on the ball. We are attributing this advance to added upper body strength due to our workout regimen, though we cannot account for the better technique since we haven't thrown the ball in weeks. Anna believes her improvement was only a matter of time since football, in fact, demands that you throw like a girl.

Anna has also completed the task of sewing two patches onto the legs of her jeans. She has poked herself approximately 12 times per leg with a needle while finishing the job. It should be noted, that while Anna gets holes in the legs of her jeans mine always wear out in the ass (which Anna also patched) first. I leave that out there for people to draw their own conclusions.

Last night we watched Orginal Sin, which is remarkably terrible considering that Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie spend a considerable portion (the parts they spend tending to a flock of alpacas, anyway) simulating coitus with lots of nudity. Something for everyone, right? Not really. We turned to that after a false start on Luther, which looked unspeakably wretched. The movie stars Joseph Fiennes and Jonathan Firth, and we can only imagine how much those two talked fratricide on the set.

Mary Gordon's West Coast Swing in support of her book Pearl hits Berkeley and San Francisco today. FFH staffer Anna is following the tour and will file a report sometime in the next 36 hours.

Also coming in the next 36 hours, a discussion of the Phoenix Suns the most watchable team in the NBA. They come to town to play the Kings tonight and FFH will be on the scene as well.

  • I dug Luther. (I cannot recant.) How much of it did you get you through?

  • So, Michael is only one generation removed from the garment industry. However, the comment:

    "Anna has also completed the task of sewing two patches onto the legs of her jeans. She has poked herself approximately 12 times per leg with a needle while finishing the job.

    raises several questions about the impact of heredity or environment on intellectual performance.

    First, Michael learned at someone's knee that patches [knees or anywhere else] should be sewn on when the garment was not being worn. Has he failed to pass this idea on?

    Second, was the patch on his ass sewn with him inside the jeans? How many times did Michael get poked?

  • Are the Suns more watchable than the Mavs of last year or two years ago? You have no idea how much I miss Nash.

  • We made it about 10 minutes into Luther. Perhaps we were too quick to judge, but shit, you've got to put something good in the first 10 minutes, to just get us past the fact that it was funded by Lutherans.

    Also, no one was wearing the clothes that being sewed. Those were needlesticks, something a public health professional like Brooklyn Dodger should be concerned about.
