As I write this, there are 57,000 people sitting and waiting for the U2 concert to start at TCF Bank Stadium and hoping that a storm doesn't come up. We're not there, even though it is one of THE big events in Minneapolis this summer. We're at home, on the other side of the city, after a lazy day that started out with a cool thunderstorm and evolved into a let's-watch-movies day. James picked Mean Girls, a favorite movie of his, starring Lindsay Lohan. a movie I hadn't seen and sort of enjoyed. Jerry picked a movie somebody recommended to him, Idiocracy, a film that after seeing it neither of us would recommend even though it had a correct premise. I picked an old Julie Christie movie, Far From the Madding Crowd, based on the Thomas Hardy novel. I think it's a cool movie, but you know how I am.
... and tonight we might venture out, not for U2 (who I sort of like but not that much) but for the Aquatennial fireworks over the river, THE best fireworks of the year.
