But only via my second favorite method.

Yesterday's Netflix selection was In the Mood for Love. I learned from somewhere that this was a not-to-be-missed title, but it took a while to reach the top of my queue. But I couldn't be more excited that it did. The setting of 1962 Hong Kong was pretty swell, and I am so in love with the plot: two young neighbors with stressful jobs discover that their spouses are cheating on each other with each other, and how they choose to cope with that discovery. In short, I say: see it.

And the amazing set and costume design didn't hurt. Those dresses. That part. That coin purse.













No, seriously. I'm going to buy one of those coin purses and take it everywhere. My grandma would be proud that I'm carrying one just like she had.

As for life, I'm not coping well with change even though it hasn't really happened yet. I'm not sleeping well, as you might tell from the timestamp, and still trying to work out a lot. The result is me, at my desk, dead tired and inefficient. And I don't know if this is going to change anytime soon. My boss is going to Japan for two weeks, so I'll have a bit of a breather.

Today I went to Caroilne's graduation and got emotional at all the goodbyes even though it wasn't my ceremony. And Michael Mukasey was appallingly offensive. I'm glad he found a captive audience to jaw at for why he thinks Obama is wordsmithing this country into increased terrorist threats that he used to handle quite nicely with a literal iron fist, but I also wish he had recognized that the day was not about him. It was about the folks that are about to become attorneys and might have liked some words of wisdom rather than a wheelbarrow full of propaganda. There are no other words: appalling. Anyhow, it was still fun to go with Rachel and Tyler, and then have dinner afterward with Tyler at Red Robin, where our server was 1) 19, 2) stuttered, and 3) kind of hot. I stopped short of repeatedly dropping things in front of him, but I was tempted.

Stir tonight was good; don't get men, probably won't anytime soon, but whatever. The bartenders and my group of folks are my rock. No drama can wash me away with them as anchors, and I think this metaphor has gone a little far. Sorry. Anyhow, we celebrated Dan P. receiving his M.D.; I bought him a martini and he drank it in about 90 seconds, heh. I am so very much looking forward to his going away party next weekend, even though I don't want him to go away.

That's it. It's a new week! Let's see how I handle it.
