A weekend with leadsynth [Jul. 10th, 2005|02:16 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

Friday night was spent watching Sin City, arms around each other at the freezing Brew and View. The movie was dark, funny, and both gorgeous and gruesome to look at, and Maya chatted excitedly in my ear about color correction. On the way home, we encountered a surprised co-worker of mine on the train platform. Yes, I do exist away from my desk!

Then last night, we went to a birthday party for Nick, an old friend of mine from school. It was a schwanky, wine-and-cheese affair, fun to get glammed up for (pictures later, perhaps), and I got to catch up with Ashley and Puran, dork out with Adam, and trade work/love/life stories with Puran's charming friend Chris, who turned out to be in charge of the $300-and-up shoe department at the Michigan Avenue Nordstrom. (I became self-conscious of my shoes, but Chris assured me that they were acceptable, and I don't get the feeling he'd lie about something so vastly important.) I stayed and drank wine until my lips were stained dark purple, then walked to the Wilson el stop at three a.m. in my acceptable footwear, mumbling over and over to myself the same Mountain Goats song that's been in my head for two months, and ended up crashing on Maya's couch -- far preferable to going all the way to Howard and then cabbing it home, if you don't have anywhere to be the next morning.

I could make it a hat trick by going to Ravinia with Maya tonight, but there's running to be done. This whole training-in-the-summer thing might take some getting used to. Yesterday, I tried running in the early afternoon, and a mere six miles left me dehydrated and sunburned. Let's hope that if I wait until evening, I'll be able to do nine today with no problem.

i am not familiar with the story, but i LOVE frank miller, and it seems to be filmed just like his style (i think he was in on making it).

tim is a huge sin city fan.

speaking of tim, i am sad to not be at punk rock night this week. :-(

It's always weird to run into coworkers on the Outside - you always feel like you should have more to talk about than there actually is :).

Hmmm...was Chris in charge of that shoe department three years ago? Because if he was, I might well have seen him on the day my aunts, the Three Fates, dragged me there to go wedding shopping. (The shoes I ended up with were less than $300, as it turned out, but it certainly wasn't for lack of trying on pretty much everything).

Nope, I think he's only been there for a year or two.

My co-worker was leaving a train as I was getting on it, so we only had about twenty seconds to talk to each other. (I can't remember, but I think twenty is the number of seconds the el is supposed to pause at stations. Not that anything about the el ever happens according to schedule.)

Dude, I loved the Brew and View! Technically, the Bagdad and Kennedy School are just as good (or perhaps better) but the Brew and View has many fond memories... Sin City was damned good, too.

Hmmm... we probably did. :) You still moving out here? Apparently Jim is already here. We don't know what is going on with him.

Heh. jwithington is there. He found friends to stay with, not to worry.

You still moving out here?

No freaking clue.

Ah. Ain't it grand to flap in the wind like that?
