Yeah. That's what it was like to watch Nobody Knows, which is a Japanese film about a year in the life of four kids essentially abandoned by their mother. The three youngest kids aren't allowed to leave the apartment because they aren't supposed to be living there. The fun part is that every time you think that their lives can't get worse -- surprise! they can.
I'm sure there's something redeeming about the movie, I just can't think of anything right now.
Other than that, I went to class and worked at the office and sent around a revision of my dissertation proposal. I'd been rewriting a few paragraphs over and over again; so it was nice to be rid of it.
