(no subject)

Meant to go ice skating with K, but the place was closed once we got there. Lame! Certainly seems likely we'll be able to go some time after I get back from xmas vacationing though.

Stayed in and watched "Man on Wire" instead, which I had seen before but she had not. I really like that movie a lot. There's a profound tension between the seriousness of the planning, the blatant illegality of the thing, etc. and the beautiful un-necessity (or maybe I should say: self-necessity, self-justification) of the artistic act itself. Anyway, If you haven't seen it yet, see it. It's an excellent meditation on how people are crazy and mostly awesome. (9/10)

Later got some dinner at enoteca with K and aleffert because aleffert is in my neighborhood now and this is pretty great.
