Ok, first the memage which I'm doing because I think I'll win the prize for shortest distance....

Meme from maryread

1. Go To Mapquest.com
2. Click on Directions
3. Enter your Current Address and the Address of your Childhood Home (or at least the town if you don't remember the exact address)
4. Put the time and distance in a post like this.
5. Don't forget to repost these directions. (Not the door to door ones!)

Total Est. Time: 2 minutes Total Est. Distance: 0.55 miles

Do I win? If there's a prize for shortest distance while not actually still living in one's childhood home, I think I've got it. dalmeny would probably win the prize for living furtherest away  while still remaining on the planet.

Yesterday was a good day. I was late getting to the part-time job but it turned out not to matter since I wasn't on the schedule for 11am-5pm this Saturday or next, as I have been for the last year. I asked Brian (the manager) what was up and he said I'd have to talk to Nick (who's in charge of scheduling). This probably means that they decided to fire me for missing my shift before Christmas, even though they didn't need me that day. That's fine, I don't really need the money right now and it will be nice to have my Saturdays free again. It would have been swell if they had bothered to, you know, let me know. A phone call, email, voice mail on my cell, whatever. So by the time I would normally be leaving BW3s (I have no idea why they call it that, I know there are only 2 Ws) I had finished grocery shopping and laundry for the week and cleaned my place a little. This normally doesn't get done until Sunday evening.

After the chores were done I went to see The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou which was every bit as weird as I thought it would be. But it was weird in soothing way. I  think a lot of reviewers have missed the point, the only thing that matters to Zissou is what's on film, nothing else. Also I think the director expected us to realize that the characters were always aware of the camera, not only 'Vikram's' camera but the one that was filming what we were watching as well. It was a movie about a guy who makes movies after all. The soundtrack was also weird but soothing. About half of it was one of the actors singing David Bowie songs in Portugese and accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, and the other half was this weird lounge techno from 1975 courtesy of Mark Mothersbaugh (of Devo fame). I'm thinking of getting the soundtrack.  Also, if anyone out there in friendsland has seen it, did you notice Owen Wilson showing up in some scenes he should not have been in? I didn't see him but a number of people at the IMDB (don't look unless you want to be spoiled) saw him where he shouldn't have been. I may go back and see it again this afternoon. It's either that or laughing myself silly at "Phantom."  (Mmmm, Gerard Butler!)

Before I go see that though is the serious excitement when I (for real) organize my sock drawer!! Woohoo! This involves trying them all on to check for holes and making sure there is a match for each sock. Any socks that fail either test will be tossed. So that I won't expire of ennui in the middle of this task I'll be doing it while watching the most exciting movie I own "Run, Lola, Run!".
