Last night went out with the gang. We thought about invading one of the Irish bars, but they were packed, so we went to Sodalak's instead and then to Spec's for booze and munchies. For future reference, St. Germain tastes like an elfish flower concoton (it's made of elderberry flowers and tastes a bit like honey or nectar), and you can get a Pino Grigiot on a bottle that looks like Romulan Ale. Which we did, but haven't drunk yet. Anyhow.
Then we had a film fest of sorts. We started off with 1970s German "erotic comedy" Run, Virgin, Run
which was definitely comedic though not erotic. Basically there's an alpine village and the local superstition is to send out the menfolk for a walk when a magic wind comes, and the fertility goddess will bless the women, and in the meantime the village blacksmith just visits all the womenfolk while the men are out walking. Oh and apparently everyone in the town stays at the same hotel. Or something. It was the 1970s, that's all I got, folks. I had hoped to find a picture of the poster to show, but IMDB's film entry had this instead:
It's got UFOs in it. I'm not at all convinced it is for the same film--I suspect the opposite. Its really too bad we couldn't get one of these for the exhibit though. (If I can get in Brundage's "Red Nails" cover I should be able to manage this.) Anyway.
Then we watched Repo Man: The Genetic Opera
. It has Giles in it and he sings. The best way to describe this film is to say, imagine if Dr. Horrible
and Sweeney Todd
had a nerdy goth baby. This would be that baby.
BTW: Giles singing? Still hot.
At any rate we stayed up way too late watching movies and being goofy, so I stayed over. I helped Carla make an awesome quiche for breakfast and then she brought Connor over for a playdate with Alleria, which they both enjoyed. Scott got back late last night also, and we're going to take it easy today.
I need to be constructive but I'm just tired. Also, discovered yesterday there are some political machinations going on at work that make me wary, so I'm seriously considering going up for tenure this year. I feel worn thin as is with all the things I have going on, but on the other hand, if I do that it may be safest and may keep me from freaking out over other things. I don't know. I'm going to think on it hard this weekend.
