Time:11:43 pm
New York was wonderful and London was wonderful, but I'm happy to be home. Clarence has meowed a stern lecture to me for leaving him alone, but I gave him some butter as a treat (his favorite!) and he seems to have forgiven me. And he seems satisfied with the care he got in my absence. (Thanks!)

Taking a week off seems to have improved my poker game-- I played eight SNGs tonight, and finished in the money in seven of them. Getting hit in the head with the decks might have had something to do with it, maybe, perhaps.

If you're anywhere near San Francisco, hie thee over to the Castro theater pronto to see Milk. I saw it last night, and I was extremely impressed. Sean Penn has never been one of my favorite people, but he gave a spectacular performance. Hey, what are you waiting for? Go!

As for me, I'm going to take a long hot bath then crash.

My car wasn't invited.

I have a fairly good idea of where I was on the screen for a few seconds, but it's so far back in the crowd that I'm just a shadow and a candle. I could be wrong, though-- I'll watch it more closely when it's available on DVD.

IMO Penn is one of the 2 or 3 finest actors of his generation.

In his opinion, you're vastly underrating him.

I haven't seen a lot of Penn movies, but I keep hearing that he gets better as he gets older - just generally infinitely better now that he's out of his 20s.

Glad you had a great time on your trip!

I think he's been fantastic his whole career, going back to The Falcon and the Snowman, as well as Taps and even Fast Times. I'm with adb_foldem on this one.

Nice I am happy to hear you had fun in London and got home safely... I hope the rest of your holidays go well too!

"Hey, what are you waiting for? Go!"

I'm waiting for it to open in the East Bay...

Go see it at the Castro. Really. The energy of being Right There In The Middle Of It All is pretty damned cool.

It's kinda like watching a documentary with the subject sitting next to you.
