Last night I watched Get Low (Netflix link), and I greatly enjoyed it. It's a slow-going movie; it took me awhile to get into it. It's the kind where there's something we don't know, and we get the story verrrrrry gradually; at first I found this frustrating, but after awhile I was willing to wait. Bill Murray was in it, and he was my favorite kind of Bill Murray: underplayed, with a lot of tiny voice things and tiny expression things that I found hilarious (but difficult to explain to the children why I was laughing). At the end there's some cathartic crying. And there are a lot of interesting things to think about afterward (including "Wait, I thought they were going to tell stories. Why didn't they tell the stories? I wanted to hear the stories").
I am confused about B vitamins. I went to the store to buy B1, and they had B6 and B12 and B-complex, but no B1. I went home to look online, and found that B1 is usually sold as thiamine. B3 is sold as niacin, and B9 is sold as folic acid.
Isn't that strange/neat? Some B vitamins are known by names, and some by numbers. ...That seems less remarkable/interesting now that I type it out.
