Minnesota Nice

We watched Fargo this week. Tons of friends have told me over the years how good it is. Usually this is the kiss of death. Normally when all of my friends think I will absolutely love something, it turns out to suck. But Fargo is the real deal. Incredible movie. The Coen Brothers did for Minnesota what Sophia Coppola did for Tokyo in Lost in Translation. (Actually, they did it first.) Very different storylines, but the same craft of getting you to experience the feelings of being in that culture.

So then I flew through Minneapolis twice. First time, delays both landing and taking off. Today, all is well. Except that the Husband, traveling separately, is stuck in Dallas--for the next FOUR HOURS! At least the Sacramento airport has free wi-fi.
