Watched another episode of The Pacific
, which was thankfully action-packed for the second straight week. It's already the seventh episode (out of 10), and I'm just getting to know the characters. I'm quite the war buff, but the past three episodes have been set on the island of Peleliu (present-day Palau), and I've never even heard of the battle. Visceral battlefield sequences, though! Next week's episode is finally going to focus on Iwo Jima, so I'm looking forward to that one ....
We're supposed to go to a ballgame tonight, but after a weekend of lovely weather, it's going to come down in buckets. I'm all for hot dogs, beer and bleacher seats, but you can count me out if it's going to rain.
