I've been avoiding posting anything, largely because I've been shirking my promise to post reviews of several books I've read and the SIFF movies I attended. I've just not been in much of a mood for anything since I've started working, but that is changing. Work has settled down to a familiar grind. I've even been contemplating changing the route I take in the morning for some variety, but I'm not sure how practical that would be. Nevertheless, I'm surviving although having a job hasn't changed my lifestyle any. In fact, I'm eating up all my hoarded food bank supplies because I've not been able to stop by there when they're open. *sigh* You'd think having a job would at least afford you food. I just have to admit that I'm a terrible money manager...uh, let's not go there right now. I've been beating myself up over that too much lately.

silver pants

Just did a much needed face lift on the front page. I'm still not certain about the color scheme, orange and purple are tertiary, that is they are at a forty-five degree angles from each other on a color wheel which implies a certain relationship between the colors visually. Right now I think they are ugly together and think I might try adding red somewhere.

Work continues to improve although I'm still being reminded why I quit City Center a year-and-a-half ago. From the frypan into the fire. Been hanging out a lot with my friend Frank Young, who I've known since the early Nineties. We share a lot of interests including comicbooks, movies, writing, music and conversation. He's a very nice man and I appreciate the time he shares with me.

Last week I saw my last two movies of SIFF. On Monday I saw "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" in a newly restored and excellantly tinted print and Saturday I saw "Bang, Bang, You're Dead!", a meditation on the cause of school violence in America. I promised to post reviews to the friends blog, but then I haven't written the ones from the week before, "Men With Brooms" and "Female Trouble: A Discussion with John Waters". C'est la vie!
