so of course plums kicked ass. it was one of the best films at the festival & it was a tear jerker. so yeah, an overall great night. my faux pas of the evening was when i invited my dad to sit with us. i was holding a seat for a friend, and there was another empty one next to it. so i told him he could sit with us, but he had to take the second seat, next to a middle-aged lady. i told him he had to sit next to the bitch. he refers to my one friend as “the bitch” so every time i mention her, i just say that instead of her name so he knows who i’m talking about. of course, after i say this he gives me this look…& i realize that it sounded like i was calling the middle-aged woman the bitch, because the other seat next to him was empty. oops.

the film screening was today. the day started off with my date getting back into town and coming straight to my place. he decided to change in the dining room, which was not the best idea in the world because he had knee surgery not too long ago and just got off the crutch. rushing to change into pants when you’re wearing a leg brace can only lead to falling flat on your face and twisting your knee in all different directions. so there he was, lying in pain on my floor with his pants around his ankles. if life were a sitcom that would be just the moment my dad would drop by. man, i wish i’d gotten a picture at least. the screening & reception were great, & it was especially great because my good friend was there, as the date of my movie boyfriend. & what was even better is that i came home with a new plant, something i didn’t even steal from the conference center! as we were leaving i was spotting all kinds of decor that really needed to be in my apartment when i mentioned i wanted a tree. my friend tells me that there is a free plant/tree thing where she works, which happens to be like, 2 buildings away. so we just had to go get this free tree. of course, there were 4 other people who were dragged along with us who thought we were absolutely insane. what a day!
