Other people assembling office furniture.
Now I can’t find my notes for my five second post this evening.
Very fun weekend hence not much sitting around the computer. My inbox is so depressingly full I’m considering nuking it and starting over.
When Mom and Dad are here we always have lots of fun adventures but never seem to get around to all the stuff we intend to do. Some things we did: tons of epic food, two excellent trips to downtown Portland to visit the new office and go to Powell’s. Things we missed: international food marts, walk around the fort.
They headed out early today to beat the storm.

I’ve been intending to write about about seeing Revolutionary Road a couple of weeks ago but I just can’t seem to get to it. The short review is that I think the great acting and directing are distracting people from the idea that the story does not work. I do not recommend. Well, unless you like movies where you feel worse when you leave than when you went in.
I wanted to contrast that film with Wuthering Heights (09 Masterpiece Theater version) which I liked. I guess in tragedy it’s hard to get away from the idea that the people act like idiots. But there is something compelling about Cathy and Heathcliff’s passion. And I liked Heathcliff’s sexy lips. I still haven’t managed to finish the book. My book reading is appalling so far for 09.
The third film I was going to write about is Stranger Than Fiction with Will Ferrell and Emma Thompson which in summary sounds silly and shouldn’t work but it’s a very sweet and satisfying movie. I recommend.
I have another epic busy week. Half-assed posting, if any, will continue.
