The past week, in summary

The past week has been busy. I will give you all an outline:

Saturday 9/8/2007 (technically the week before, but so bet it): I went up to SF and unlike most times, did not bring a camera. I ventured far and wide across the city, without using my car. I bought 5 books for 13 dollars at Green Apple. I saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in IMAX 3D (for the review fans: this was pretty decent, and it did a better job of adaptation than the 4th movie. The 3d was a bit lame. 6 out of 9 rabbit turds). I had a couple of pints and dinner at the silly bar Zeitgeist. All this by 7pm, when I returned home like the old man that I am

Sunday 9/9/2007 – laundry day. But then I went and done burned my right hand while cooking dinner. Bad enough that I went to the ER (hey, it’s my dominant hand). Sadly, I broke my non driving trend to do this. I had been 6 days up until then. 2nd degree burns on the top joints of 3 fingers, first degree on more parts of my fingers and my palm. Exciting

Monday 9/10/2007 – Nothing interesting

Tuesday 9/11/2007 – I went back to San Francisco to see Ben Gibbard in conversation with Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) as part of City Arts & Lectures. This was really great. On youtube you can find bits. In particular the musical bits with Handler on the Accordion are very interesting. This was a very good show/lecture/whatever you want to call it. I am going to see a similar (but probably not quite as musical) event with Oliver Sacks next month.

Wendesday 9/12/2007 – boring day

Thursday 9/13/2007 – I watched the first part of “Prime Suspect 7” and Little Dieter Needs to Fly from netflix. 10 out of 11 rabbit turds for the film. Reviews of Prime Suspect is awaiting the second disc.

Friday 9/14/2007 – Annie’s Mac and Cheese for dinner
Saturday 9/15/2007 – I went and saw Shoot ’em Up in the theater. This review is rather subjective, and it presupposes you like action films: FANTASTIC. Basically the plot was as bare bones as could be to support non stop action. This was effective because the actors (Paul Giamatti and Clive Owens) were really able to hold their own and give life to characters that were just a tad over 1 dimensional. 5 out of 6 rabbit turds.

Later on, in the evening, I went out and had dinner at the local, closest taqueria (which is mediocre) and then went to a nearby bar and had a couple pints of Newcastle. Then it became 10pm, and the 24 year olds were too annoying, and I fled home like the old man that I am.
