Next steps. [Saturday, Feb. 9th, 2008|12:13 pm]
The richest girl in town.
Today, I'm enjoying my first weekend in three weeks of not having to wake up early to do get out the vote stuff. I still have work to do, of course, but at least I could sleep in.

Thursday I went to a party at The Watershed Company with cindymonkey to see a woman about a thing. Lots of great people were there involved in new media projects with a social justice slant, most fresh from a training at the New Organizing Institute, which was co-founded by Watershed's CEO. It was great--the offices are fun, I got to play Rock Band for the first time, and ran into Das Wench's friend Karyn there as well as anomalyartist, which was a treat. I also met someone from The League of Young (previously Pissed Off) Voters, and apparently the founder of the company that makes the Causes application for Facebook was there as well.

Last night I went to the Queer Open Mic, stopped by Martuni's with folks from the reading, and then finally went to a movie--saw There Will Be Blood with a too jaunty fellow. It was pretty good, if a bit long and one of those films that makes you bite your fingernails because you know early on that something (at least ONE something) bad is going to happen. Daniel Day Lewis was amazing, and I had no idea it was based on a book by Upton Sinclair.

Now it's time to do laundry, clean my apartment, and run whatever other errands I can manage while I have a car (my boss's while she's out of town until tomorrow night). And, of course, get some work done.

I was mixed on There Will Be Blood as well. DDLewis was spectacular, and I liked its scope and ambition, but the lead character was so unpleasant and difficult to access that I really had trouble getting into it.

It's true. I'm all about complex characters, but it's one thing to not particularly like anyone in a film. It's another to actually despise them all.
