Just ran into Heather Mitchell, old Acadio alumna, strolling Occidental Square with her (gasp!) little girl Charlotte. Last I saw her she was quitting after spending quite some time as a high-powered stress basket and was heading to LA to direct a play. Now she's married and living in West Seattle with her little munchkin - and she seems WAY happier than she ever was at Acadio. She told me Michael Benton and Steve (XXX??) are still in touch, and that apparently MB is still in France (and I assume still hung up on Steve). Heather said I was looking great (a shock, really), and I must say she was radiating relaxation and good vibes. She was very interested in the work I did to save the Whale Park near my house.
Just a few minutes earlier I had run into Matt Smith, who was in Zeitgeist getting ready to get to work (WiFi). As usual, our exchange was uncomfortable as well as somewhat vapid. Is he just bad at small talk or is there something else going on, like a strong dislike of me he has only barely kept under wraps over the years?
I didn't mention that last week I ran into Jon X of Onvia fame. I can't remember his last name right now, but he was a DBA with a shock of silver hair. Small world indeed.
It's really nice out, should I bag the movie in favor of planting flowers?
