Nothin' Much. Just Sayin'. Mellow Stamford.

I had a nice evening on Bedford St. tonight. Dinner with the husband- fast, competent service at Capriccio as usual. Then, I met up with a fellow Virginian at Tigin, where I ran into a couple other friends who were just arriving for Trivia. At 8:30, I caught half the documentaries at the Avon, and I ran into another couple friends. I walked through Tigin with the movie friends so we could say hi to the Trivia friends, and I saw a coworker. It's nice to run into people you know.

I arrived pretty late for the documentaries, and I didn't want to pay. As I opened the door to the Avon, I imagined being brave enough to try to crawl past the lady at the desk. She saw me right away, so I had to be straight up. "Hi, can I go to the documentaries, and maybe not pay, since I'm so late?"
"Sure," she said. I was pretty late, so don't try this just because you are cheap.

Sometimes I like to imagine myself doing things I'll probably never do. It keeps my life interesting. For example, when leaving Tigin and heading to my car, I imagined myself hurdling the wooden barrier between the parked cars. That would have been cool, but I didn't really have the energy. Still, it was a nice thought. It's important to consider all possibilities, just in case. Sometimes it feels good to jump over things.

So yes. There is no point to this post. Just to say that there weren't a ton of people out tonight, but there were some, and everybody was chill.

You should do a Starky & Hutch slide across the hood of your car at least once in your life. Or at least somebody's car.

It was dead out last night. I went to Napa for dinner (fantastic) and went to see Vicky Cristina Barcelona (entertaining). According to a staff member, Napa was unusually slow and there were only 3 other people in the movie theatre.

Hahaha -- I had JUST the same thought about a month ago about hurdling over those wooden barriers in the parking lot behind Tigin!

Except my thought process went something like this:

"Hey, I could hurdle over that wooden thing for fun...yeah, except I might not make it all the way over...and even if I did, the pavement's probably messed up on the other side and I'd sprain my ankle and not be able to go yoga for weeks and that would suck..."

That whole train of thought more than anything made me feel my age! Before I was in my 30's, I never imagined injuries and thought ahead about what a PITA they would be...damn, I'm old.
