weekend update... found a place, lost in translation, josh, shopping, rain, moving furniture...  
so friday relooked at a place and it has been settled (pending credit/reference checks). so hopefully things go smoothly and i will soon be living in somerville near porter/davis.

afterwards had thai food and watched Lost In Translation. Very interesting film. towards the beginning i must admit i wished i could turn off my understanding of Japanese to be able to get the full effect that the rest of the audience were getting, but the scenes were certainly funny enough. aside from the whole mid-life crisis thing as well as the identity quarter-life crisis thing which bonds the characters together (the acting was superb), the fact that they are isolated in a place so completely foreign, so alien that it generates an almost perfect singularity - an eye of the storm effect - that one is never bored. it depicted Japan so perfectly, the lonliness it generates not only for the foreigner but also for those who are Japanese, yet it also showed the almost Zen or magic quality that such lonliness in that unique system generates...

in short, i loved it. im going to buy it when it comes out.

saturday spent the morning relaxing a bit then had lunch with Josh. yummy sashimi..:> did some shopping in Harvard Square and then went home for din din. spent the evening coding...

sunday was miserable in its weather. the rain blattered down and originally i had intended to stay in and code and then later have dinner out. but things sometimes dont happen that way. ended up helping spark99 move furniture, then battled rain and horrid boston drivers and dealt with other emergencies. in any case so today im taking the day off from work and staying in to do coding... then later meet up with esmebelle to perhaps hang and have some good times...
