The other day was our 11th wedding anniversary (gee, that long already!) and, as parents were visiting from Wellington, we took the rare opportunity to catch a movie.
We saw Gloomy Sunday which I can highly recommend (so much so that it’s now on my Facebook favorite movie list. The WWII Hungarian set movie especially rang a chord for me given my familial history (both parents Hungarian and an unfortunately close connection with the Holocaust) but I’d recommend it to anyone who appreciates good art house cinema. It’s in German with English subtitles but is a beautiful movie for all that.
On a slightly less intellectual level, I’ve been making pre and post Christmas amends for gluttony and have swum 10kms and run 40kms in the past week – unlike Rowan I’m training for nothing more than the most important race of all – The Human Race.
