It's been really oppressive around here. We almost set a new record last week for consecutive 100-degree days, but we didn't even tie. A front was trying to reach us on Thursday but didn't make it. Still, the temperatures dropped well below 100. Then, early Saturday morning....it rained - 1.6 inches where we live. It was a welcomed event, for sure. I was kind of bummed about not breaking the record, after living through almost that many days...but...just...not...quite. I got over it though.
My roses may not, even with the rain:
So, I did see one movie...
Gattaca, a science fiction thriller set in a world where people of means can choose the genetic make-up of their offspring, and whether one is allowed to realize their dreams and aspirations is dependent on that genetic make-up. The underlying theme is that discrimination is wrong, no matter what the methods. Ethan Hawke plays a person with inferior DNA who buys some favorable DNA from a paralyzed man played by Jude Law. Uma Thurman, who has quality DNA, plays the love interest. It was really good.
