thursday: bought A LOT of polaroid film from a really nice guy in santa monica. i should not need to buy film for a long, long time. i also visited hal and looked at all of the photos from his cross-country drive/nyc trip. then hal, his gf leah, their friend and i walked to this little coffee/tea shop and then we went to the beach. it was really nice day outside. and of course hal and i took a bunch of photos.
i received a care package from my mother full of giant marshmellow candies shaped like a hamburger, a hot dog and french fries, hehe. she also sent me sun tan ltion spray and these awesome colorful bendy wires that i've already started making amazingly kewl things with. photos to come. (thanks ma!! xoxo). aldrin stopped by and during dinner we watched Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, a creative spoof of films from the 1940s starring Steve Martin. The kewl part is that Steve Martin is sometimes acting alongside clips from famous old movies. this makes for some comedic scenes since the dialogue of the clips are obviously being taken out of context.
rick and i watched Scoop the night before. it's a Woody Allen mystery/comedy. it wasn't bad once i accepted the fact that Scarlett Johansson hasn't been a believable actress since Lost in Translation. (my favorite movie of hers is still Ghost World though). and of course Woody Allen is very irritating at times, but once you become immune to them, the plot becomes more interesting and you actually want to know what happens at the end.
