tickling bugs, movie virgins, and not being talked out
posted by soe 12:50 pm

I have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon, so I’m posting this before I head out.

Three beautiful things from earlier in the week:

1. When we were at the vineyard on Saturday, Rudi and I were relaxing on some chairs in the shade while we waited for his tasting to begin. A shiny black and yellow striped flying critter found me irresistable and started hovering over my leg, pausing now and then to “lick” me. It was such an odd sensation, being tickled by a bug!

2. It’s always so much fun to go to see a showing of a movie you’ve seen a number of times and to hear how the audience reacts to the scenes. It was obvious at the AFI showing of After the Thin Man, that some people were newbies to the series because they had that great reaction that only comes when you first experience a particular scene or line.

3. As I’ve mentioned many times before, Karen and I have known each other since high school. We don’t talk every week, but usually manage to phone once or twice a month (and then for hours and hours). When we were in high school, we talked on the phone almost every night, as teenagers often do. But somehow we’ve never run out of things to talk about, even after all these years.

Who on earth were all those crazy people in cars out before the sun was up? I’m sure some of them were perfectly respectable people out taking people to airports or hospitals, but who were the rest of them? Why were they up that early? If they had to be up that early, why were they out driving? And in such crazy numbers?
