- Movie of the week: Bagdad Cafe, writer and director Percy Adlon
- Book of the week: August and then some, David Prete.
What they have in common: Atmosphere and inference. An absorbing story. Omissions telling more of the story than the story itself.
Yoga this morning was great, it was a similar style class to the one I used to go to, Vinyasa Flow, so mostly it felt very familiar. It was super crowded, but I liked the instructor and will definitely take another class with her.
I spent part of the day getting some basic groceries, doing a bit of housework, prepping some materials for tomorrow’s Vegan Pledge, and setting up more of my new desk area. Last week, I decided to move my home office into one end of the living room, since my old home office is no longer available (is now a kid’s room). And I was getting very sick of the clutter crammed into the corner of the master bedroom.
It should work out fine for now as we don’t really use the living room much at the moment. (Weird how when you take the TV out, the focal point is gone, and it seems like there is really no reason to congregate there anymore. Plus, we have crappy furniture. If we ever got a real sofa and/or good quality reading chairs, it would be much more desirable to hang out there). We haven’t had cable for years, but we normally hook up a laptop to the big TV for Hulu & Netflix, etc. The TV got moved up to the bedroom a few months ago and never left. So now we just congregate there instead—or everyone watches their own thing on their Kindle Fire.
Tonight, I went to Occupy the Music, a benefit concert put on by some friends of mine. I didn’t know what to expect—and was pleasantly surprised at the talent there. I especially enjoyed E.T. and the Boy and David Rovics.
