1) I finally got to watch Toy Story 3 yesterday. Not gonna lie, I cried at the end. I mean, I was straight up boo-hooing. It was an excellent movie, by far my favorite out of the three.

2) Out of boredom, I watched Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Little Girls" Saturday night. I have to say, it was much better than I thought it would be, though some of Tyler's "issues" with black women (particularly those who are educated) were still present. Still, not nearly as much misogyny as "Why Did I Get Married?" (I didn't bother watching the sequel, ugh), and the plot, though a bit weak and cliche in parts, was far more decent than some of the things he's come out with.

Speaking of Tyler Perry and black women, I still haven't decided whether or not to see "For Colored Girls". I mean, the cast is excellent (and it's sad that Tyler Perry is one of the ONLY people giving black actors/actresses of this caliber work), and I know he is only adapting the work from someone else, but I don't know. I have a habit of walking away from his movies pissed off.

3) My NaNo fic is stalled. I decided to start late, and did not have time to plan it out accordingly. I still have time to at least get it up to 50k (it stands at 22k right now), but if I don't like where it is heading, what's the point?

"For Colored Girl" has been getting a lot of mixed reviews. The general consensus seems to be that it's not as good as it could have been, but it's still better than Perry's other films. So I guess it's worth giving a go, at least?

I probably will check it out in the end. I've noticed a lot of the more negative reviews have been men whining about how it makes them look bad.
