I've been stressing about the various details of that whole plan, so much so that this afternoon I gave myself my second migraine ever. Those really suck. I quickly took some meds, pulled the blinds, and put a sleep mask on. I ended up snoring away with the cat sitting on my hip for about an hour and a half. I think it was just enough to keep the worst of the headache at bay, although I did get to the stage where I felt like my eyeballs were being pushed deep into their sockets. Ugh. Migraines are bad. So tonight instead of studying for my initial test for the teaching program, I popped in a movie and just vegged in front of the TV. Not the best use of my time, but I wasn't sure I could handle reading after my headache.
I enjoy seeing movies in the theater, but I'm a bit hard to please. And I'm totally disappointed by what passes as good acting nowadays. So I decided to rent some oldies that I've never seen before from this list and started tonight with 12 Angry Men. What a film! And Henry Fonda - what a great performance. His face is so expressive; he is entirely believable. I absolutely loved this movie. It reminded me so much of jury deliberations on the trial I was on a year or so ago. (And it made me want to write about that experience.) I thought Jack Klugman did great, too. It's kind of fun to watch movies without a bunch of special effects and just absorb the story. Great movie. I've only seen Henry Fonda in one other movie - On Golden Pond. Holy cow, is that a good movie or what? I haven't seen that since it came out. That would be another fun rental.
If I get my studying done tomorrow, next up is Glengarry Glen Ross. Not exactly an oldie, but highly recommended. Any other great ones I should see?
