Today has been. Make that this week. Let's see: as of Wednesday morning I am eligibile for a diploma, I have dutifully followed the midweek UCL fixtures; finally met JS (the skeptic). This was the last time I washed my clothes, which makes today's laundry work quite the milestone. There's more. I got around to [...]

Man, that was hard to watch

So, the movie . . .

Or should I say your content? Dolor y Gloria. That's Spanish for "Pain and Glory".
