Shalom Bayit II

"Peace in the Home II"

Just like I watched "The Bank Job" with Pat a few weeks ago for the sake of shalom bayit (peace in the home), I'm watching "Miller's Crossing" with Pat now.

Spoiler Alert: The only good part is John Turturro, but he's being gotten rid of, perhaps, in this scene -- the one compelling one of the movie so far.

Really, I don't mind *what* we're watching because I'm spent from writing a paper for eight hours yesterday and today. It's done now. One little one and one big one to go. After I finished this one, I invited Pat to go for a walk. It was so, so windy out, but sunny enough for sunglasses.

The wind kept blowing off the hood of my fake leopard-fur jacket, but it was worth it because we got to see grape hyacinths, forsythia, purple sheaths of hostas peeking out of the soil, weeping cherries, pink dogwoods, darling mini-daffodils -- "Remember the wood-chipper in 'Fargo?'" Pat asked while both of us were just grossed out by the latest scene in this God-forsaken film, which was also produced by the Coen Brothers.

How can nature be so gorgeous and its creatures so brutal?
