Well, so Spring Break just flew by. I suppose it could have had something to do with the fact that I slept in for much of the week - I was really trying to get up at a reasonable hour, and I managed to do it wonderfully on Monday, but somehow the rest of the week was just... no. I even slept until 3:30pm on Thursday, and I haven't done that in a while. I guess that either means I'm horribly lazy, or I really needed it (or something somewhere in between...).

Of course, most of my plans for a relaxing week were thwarted by CIAO, as often seems to happen. But I think I have finally, finally solved this X-ray flux issue - I'm really hoping so, though clearly I've said I know how to get X-ray fluxes before and been horribly wrong. So we'll see. I'm hoping to get that done (or mostly done) this weekend and see what falls out by Monday, when I really should be moving on to other things, ideally.

It looks like Starbucks has brought out the new design, which I really do like - it's very clean and simple, very nice. And at least down here, they're giving out free petites with every drink, and they are delicious. Also, the last time I reloaded my gold card, I randomly got a $5 bonus? I have no clue why, but hey - not complaining. They know where all my money goes. But I really like sitting here to work - there are big windows, and nice, low-level background music, and it's well-lit and cheery. My apartment, despite having a big sliding-glass door, faces south so even though there's decent natural light, it's not ideal. Plus, I tend to have cats walking all over my keyboard more often than not. I love them, but I can't always get work done when they OMGneedattentionnow!

As for the rest of this week, in between CIAO-ing I actually saw two movies: I Am Number Four and Battle: Los Angeles. Thoughts below, cut for potential spoilers! )

And of course, I can't not mention the world-stage craziness going on: I don't actually know anyone currently in Japan, but of course that doesn't matter. I think they were as prepared for something like this as anyone can be, and if there is any way I can help, I'm going to do it - the only thing I can probably really do is donate money to the relief efforts, but I figure every little bit helps, right?
