I put the smash down, I put it down

July 31st, 2005 § Four comments

Okay, okay, so I haven’t been posting enough, or indeed at all, for the past month. I’ll try to do better.

Last night, I joined a couple of friends in the Mission for dinner at an unusual slice joint—each slice is really a miniature pizza, since it’s made fresh for its buyer rather than taken from a whole pizza and reheated. We then attended what may have been the city’s all-time worst short film festival, which shall remain nameless to protect the guilty. Let’s just say that there were two films of a performance artist who described her work as “outspoken-word poetry.” After one particularly excruciating entry, one of my friends turned to me and said, with a poker face, “This is a totally authentic experience.” We left early to cleanse our heads with some of the Latin American Club‘s infamous margaritas, which come in pint glasses and give one a sense of what it would be like to get hit in the head with a tequila-filled baseball bat.

Today I’m having a relaxed morning at home, reading the New York Times and listening to one of my strange neighbors playing quasi-Eastern-mystical banjo music in the building’s courtyard. I need to leave soon, though, so I can go see a movie about adorable penguins, who I trust will keep the outspoken-word poetry to a minimum.

    How was the penguin movie? I heard it was fantastic, and wish I had seen it before fleeing the country to wade in a puddle full of contaminated water on the other side of the world.

    It was fantastic! It will be almost as enjoyable on DVD, though, so don’t worry about missing it in the theater.
    Your business trip sounds much less professional when you describe it that way, however accurate your description might be.

    Welcome back to the blogosphere, sir. The internet has missed you.
    By the way, this reminds me that I need to take you guys to Goat Hill’s Monday night all-you-can-eat special. Maybe next week? You might want to begin fasting now…

    Ah, it will be nice to be back in the States someday and rejoin the world of Netflix….2006! 2006! (yep, I’m here until Christmas at least).

What’s this?
