So Saturday I went into work and it snowed pretty good, but it didn't stick. I was going to dodge the AN staff meeting on Sunday, but the email I sent in with my event descriptions wound up uncovering a thing that made my attendance mandatory (the thing has subsequently been handled). We went to one of the new brewery restaurants in the neighborhood on Saturday night and the beer was good and the dinner was good and the prices, well, the prices are high. Most new eateries in Liberty Village seem to be expensive tourist-trap kinda places, angling for that Toronto FC / Argos game day crowd and the weekend singles out mingling. The actual residents of Liberty Village, they seem to order in a lot.

Caught up with the Coen's "Hail Caesar" and I felt that I want to see a whole movie of Hobie Doyle and Carlotta Valdez attending premieres and solving mysteries. Josh Brolin was great, Clooney was making his part look a lot easier than it actually was, but then again, he makes everything look easy, and Scarlett Johansson's character and subplot was completely superfluous and could have been done away with entirely. I mean, her story arc is solved off-camera. Even the movie got bored with it! The picture never really comes together, and while it's satisfying, the parts don't add up to a whole.

Sunday we went to the meeting and then we got some lunch and then went to the grocery store and then took our new bikes out around the neighborhood. My new bike is longer than my old one, mounting and dismounting takes some getting used to, but it rides like a dream.

The dishwasher drain pump is jammed, and it's driving me nuts that I can't get to it and clean it out. It's down under there, hard to get to, I dunno, I don't wanna flood the kitchen. Probably gonna call the service guy. Luckily, it's a dishwasher, we can fulfill its duties by hand. Wouldn't be the first time we've washed dishes.

This week: working on the opening to Anime North Anime Hell, mostly.
