Saturday, 1.29.05: Week in Review
Saturday. Recovering from the margarita party. Snowstorm coming. Went to do some grocery shopping but it was a madhouse of people stocking up on provisions. I turned around and went home.
Sunday - Tuesday. Quiet shopkeeping - adventures in my mind, covered pretty well in other entries this week. Writing and posting descriptions of picture postcards - I go, go, go till I get bleary-eyed and start screwing up. Then I put them aside till the next day.
Wednesday. My letter appeared in the newspaper. We celebrated by going for dinner at a new little Japanese restaurant on Park Ave, in the city. Crazy to go to that neighborhood in this weather -- you have to park among the snow drifts. But the food was delicious.
Thursday. We took a trip to our Financial Advisor to review our investments. She has us so diversified I feel like a own a bit of everything.
Friday. I was running around getting sold items off to their new owners. My guy in France was really uptight about his photo so wanted it sent Global Express - nearly as expensive as the item itself.
Jim paid the consequences for the piles of snow on city curbs when he had a fender bender this morning. He was running around doing the insurance business, then, and managed to lock his keys in the car. Not his day.
MOVIES THIS WEEK
Bladerunner (1982). Harrison Ford fun.
Independent's Day (1998). Documentary about Sundance Film Festival. A little discouraging to see the aggressiveness required to become visible there.
The American Nightmare (2000). Documentary about the guys who made gory horror movies in the 1970s - John Carpenter, Wes Craven ,etc. They talked about the cultural context of their movies, like Vietnam. It gave me chills. These are serious guys.
Habit (1997). Another chilling movie, not a documentary. Is our hero having an encounter with a vampire or just going crazy?
