I saw "La La Land". It got nominated for, like, 14 Oscars. I'll bet it wins at least 10. It was really, really good on a lot of levels. The editing was great. The sets and art direction were mind-blowing. It had the charm of an on-stage musical with the production value of a big Hollywood hit. Emma Stone was incredible. I had fun watching it, and I'm the biggest sad-sack the world has ever known. A real home run.

Met with my realtor today. He's a great guy...but man, you just can't get away from money these days. I'm not going to make much, if any, off my home, and I just don't care. I'm over it. He fed me some line of bullshit about "fiduciary responsibility" - whatever. I'm meeting him next week and we'll see how that goes.

I need to run.

My dad wants to buy a lot and have a house built on it to his specifications. But he wants to sell our current house himself instead of using a realtor for the exact reason you mentioned. Not sure if it's easier or harder than having a realtor since I've never had to sell a place. I know there may be drawbacks in either case.

I hope things improve for you and you can find some relief from the stress.

I herd some of the La La Land Music today on pandora. It sounded really good. I think I might check it out once it comes out on dvd and rent it from the library or just buy it. One or the other.

I've actually come to respect Emma Stone as an actress lately, so I'll have to put that on my movie watch list! I hope it's on Netflix (got a free month trial).

I'm glad you enjoyed La La Land. I didn't so much and thought much of it was boring but hey, we can't all like the same things :)
