A day of rest
I had planned today to write a snarky assessment of The Vampire Lovers, a rather silly lesbian vampire flick from Hammer films that Norman and I caught last night at the Egyptian. But I'm really not in the mood. Sean and I found out earlier today that some friends of ours lost their baby, who was due in early October. They found out a few weeks ago that there was a tumor on the umbilical cord, and they were hoping she could carry the baby just a few more weeks so her doctor could safely induce labor. But she had the baby, a boy, on Thursday, and he died. As far as I know, she is physically fine, but of course she and the baby's dad are wrecks. I feel terrible for them -- I can barely imagine the pain they must be in, and right now they don't want visitors or even phone calls, so it's hard to know what we can do for them.
