You Have Been Weighed, You Have Been Measured, And You Have Been Found Wanting

Today was great, and we've done all what we've set out to do, which amounts to a grand total of ... nothing.

Well, OK, not "nothing" — we did run some errands and get groceries, but apart from that, all we did was cook, eat and watch a whole lot of TV. Oh, and we ate some delicious Maui Gold pineapple.

We watched another episode of Flashpoint and Girlfight, which was Michelle Rodriguez's debut movie. It's an avant la lettre, or precursor, to Million Dollar Baby but less heavy. Then we wrapped it up with Anvil! The Story of Anvil. It's an excellent and emotional documentary about the heavy metal band Anvil, who, despite being credited by the likes of Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer as an inspiration, have never made it to the big leagues. They're still together after 36 years and 13 albums, and the whole time, they've been working regular jobs and playing small gigs for a few dozen people. The documentary finally gave them the jumpstart that they've been craving all along, and they are now touring with the likes of AC/DC and Saxon.

Ahh, I'm getting all nostalgic again. \m/
