"...and they had the best Christmas ever."

Yesterday was quite pleasant. Since I don't see much of my family these days, I spent the day with friends, and large quantities of food. Into one day I somehow managed to fit dim sum, a (semi-) close game of Scrabble(tm), the new Ang Lee film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, cooking dinner for five, and present opening. The film was very beautiful. I'd really like to see it again soon.

After I took leave of my friends for the day, I wanted to watch another film, but I was feeling a bit tired, so I watched three scenes from three different films. The first was the "like tears in rain" speech from Bladerunner, the second was the 'dancing' plastic bag from American Beauty, and the third was when Jen meets Kira for the first time in The Dark Crystal. It was a bit like movie dim sum -- just a little taste of everything.

The Eazelhackenapartmentisch is a bit lonely without eskil and mjs around. I should take advantage of their absence and watch some really bad movies or something.

Walking up Castro Street to the subway (is it a superway when it's above ground?), I saw a butterfly, of a type I'd never seen before, perched on some ivy. As I approached, it circled around my head and landed again. I thought that most butterflies migrate south for the winter, so it was a nice surprise to see one.
