5:23 PM: So sleepy last night it was painful. Decided to not wimp out, and pushed myself to get out to the 4 Star to see Dragon Inn. Called first to confirm the time. Bought the ticket early. Then, just as we're all about to go in and sit down, then the little theater man says "Swordsman starting now, you can go in."
"You mean Dragon Inn, right? Swordsman's tomorrow."
"No, no Dragon Inn. Swordsman. Dragon Inn, film broke, can't show it."
Sigh. Because I was going to go see Swordsman with other people tonight, on a double bill. It's just of a piece with everything else. I was so tired I near-slept through it as it was. Fucked up.
Aren't those just the cutest riot shields you've ever seen? They look like they should be wearing armored kimonos to go with them.
Police in Davos, Switzerland, carried riot shields on patrol outside a meeting place of the World Economic Forum, which begins Thursday.
"George W. was a happy little monkey. He lived on an estate in Texas without a care in the world."Heh.
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
