Back in the Good Old World

The Traveler's RewardIt took about 23 hours to get from the Vienna Hilton to my front door yesterday, but it was worth it — I’ve been away too long, and it’s good to be back home.

It would have been nice if my luggage had made it back with me, but I’m assured it’ll be delivered this afternoon. I can afford to be Zen about it; these things happen, there wasn’t anything in the bags that I desperately needed today (except possibly for contact-lens solution), and I’d brought my precious sachertorte back in my carry-on bag.

The only downside is that I now have to raid what’s left of my wardrobe for a decent shirt, because I’m apparently going on CTV Newsnet at around 12:15 this afternoon to talk about the week’s new movies. You know the drill: Rogers Cable 62, I’ll be the guy in the largish box on the upper left.

Incidentally, I know I’ve been lax in doing my weekly movie rundown — there just wasn’t the time to put it all together on the last couple of Thursday evenings/Friday mornings. Sorry for the deprivation; normal service will resume next week, just in time for us to start fighting over “Synecdoche, New York”.

  1. Definitely chocolate. Deep, dark chocolate cake, covered with an armor-like coating of deeper, darker chocolate icing. With apricot jam inside.

    It is teh awesome.

  2. I totally agree with you — but only up to the point where Emily Watson turns up (after that, the wheels go flying off the conceptual wagon). I now think that the greatest film ever made would consist of the first hour of SYNECDOCHE, just welded onto (and before) the last forty minutes of Halicki’s GONE IN 60 SECONDS. Let’s try it. It might just work!!
