Watashi wa ocha-no otaku desu. I bought a new Darjeeling and an oolong tea after we went to see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind tonight. It wasn't the movie we were intending on seeing, but since I screwed up and got us to the theater at 6:55 for a 6:30 movie (what can I say but the print in the newspaper was very small), we were grateful to be able to catch something tonight at all. And this was a movie I wanted to see ... I just didn't think it would be so soon! Thank God there were still a few surprises left for me in this film, although I think I wish someone had just told me: it's good, go see it, don't read about it beforehand (so I won't say much about it here). It was kind of strange seing a movie in which the lead character reminded me of myself. Am I really that much of a freak? Is this why so many people find me abrasive? I was definitely brought face to face with my own (likely) lack of impulse control tonight.
Now I have to do my writeup of the freaky-assed Judith Schaechter exhibit at the Museum of Glass. It will be my first article in Tablet since they went monthly. I miss writing, but I'm having a hard time getting published now that they're printing half as much as they used to.
