L'Auberge Espanol after Big Bike Ride

Our evening wrapped up with Comet (for happy hour), Hot Mama's (for slices), and a trip to the Metro to see L'Auberge Espagnole. It was fun and light, pretty much as I expected, and had lots of great shots of Barcelona, which made me really want to go to Spain again. (Geez, plot: French college guy goes to Barcelona to do the studies that will help him land a good job at some French ministry when he graduates, and winds up studying a lot more about life than about economics.) There was a very strong lesbian character and some weird moral questions being dealt with not very seriously. If anyone sees it, can they tell me what exactly happened with him and his girlfriend? Finally, the ending was really ... weak. It really felt like they didn't know how to wrap up things so they chose the easy out, the one I saw coming at the very beginning of the film. Oh well, maybe I'll balance it out with Sweet Sixteen just so I get my full spectrum dose of movies this week.

Back home, the bike ride and the fan put me out good and hard ... until 5:30, when I just couldn't get back to sleep for an hour or so. It was so depressing to look at the clock in the kitchen and realize that neither hand had moved to the left of the 6 yet. I finally fell asleep on the couch, then wound up sleeping until 10:45 and deciding to wait for the 12:30 pilates class, which is where I'm going now. I'm having people over for Catan tonight, and it will be fun!
