Tuesday: work, metroblogging meetup at the Elysian. The maximum number of attendees was six, but that was only for a short time. Still, with only four/three attendees, we ended up spending a really long time hanging out and realizing how un-unique my iTunes library is. By the way, if you haven't gotten a chance, hurry up and get some of the Elysian's Night Owl Pumpkin Ale. It's magically delicious.
Wednesday: After work and a quick downtown shopping experience, I met up with Carole and Atri at Pacific Place to see Shopgirl. This time, I arrived early enough and had real passes; so we got in without any trouble.
Although I liked the movie, I think that I liked the preview [apple] better. But the trailer is exceptionally good. The movie itself came across as something of a fairy tale. Or at least this was my interpretation given the occasional third-person omniscient narration (from Steve Martin, who also is in the movie) and the number of stars visible in the Los Angeles sky. It was a little bit weird to see the one-time Angela Chase in romantic relationships with Steve Martin and Max Fischer. If you can get past that, it's a nice little drama.
On the walk home, I bought a book to read on the plane (Indecision) and listened to explosions in the sky.
