Super-OK

Essay is now at 3,000 words. I'll be finishing the first draft tomorrow (looks like it will shape up to be about 4,000-4,500 words long) and give myself Sunday for corrections.

Finally watched Superbad, which was wildly uneven and super-OK. What the hell was up with the cop stuff? As far as the cops were concerned: The ironic juxtaposition with the teens was obvious, the writing alternated between over-the-top and painfully wooden (the scene of "revelations" on the bed was flat) and they didn't fit into the dramatic arc except in the most superficial way. The non-cop stuff did deliver some hilarity...

And the weekend is upon is!
