Really, less can be more. Movie review.

Made it to "That Night's Wife" (another Ozu silent) tonight with stolen_tea and varina8 in attendance. Afterward we talked about how the accompaniment we keep getting for these movies seems to eschew the form of silent movie accompaniment in favor of a "sound track" style form, which is inappropriate, we think, for them. Monday's Male and Female with Dennis James at the keyboard will likely be much better. I'll hit Sunday's silent, but I may be sticking to the talkies after this - not like I have much of a choice given that I'm leaving before the end of the festival.

I was too tired afterward to see the 9:15 film, but we decided to get a pint at the Comet along with stolen_tea. We broke out the Gloom game, which we decided was silly but a little lacking in game mechanics. A lot of time was spent discussing the "what-if"s of the move - when I might leave, if shadowdaddy might need to get roommates while he was trying to get a job together, how long it might take him to make it over - all stuff that was mostly irrelevant without knowing the results of tomorrow's conversation with the hiring manager, which will be along the lines of "might you actually consider me for this job anyway?" I'm worried because I sent her my resume two weeks ago and she didn't actually respond to my email, but I'll either email or call tomorrow and see if I can figure out if I might even be in the running for the job, and if so when she might be looking to have it filled.

I also found out today that with a travel agent discount I could do the Eurostar ( 1 passenger) to Paris for $40 each. That's peanuts! Of course the trick is that you can only use that deal once a year, though apparently I can get swinging deals on lots of different train destinations. The picture of Algarve made it look really nice, too, even though I don't know a thing about Portugal and 60° still seems a little on the cool side to me - not really swimming weather. Meanwhile I'm mooning about the fancy kayaking trips off of Vancouver Island - mostly focusing on the west coast (though I do like the idea of kayaking from a mother ship or - better yet - from B&B to B&B).The Nutchatlitz is the one that's really appealing to me right now, but there's no way this will happen unless I stay here all the way through July ... and we need to get the house worked on and I need to get that horrible periodontist thing attended to and there's a million other things going on between now and then. It'll be nice to get to Orcas Island in two weekends - maybe that will muffle the call of the ocean to a dull roar.
