Tomorow evening, I'm meeting fellow bloggers in Oakland. On Sunday evening, I'll be taking public transportation all the way from SF's East Bay to the Castro District. The Castro Theater is showing Hitchcock's North by Northwest.

Have a good weekend, Susan, and my fellow visitors to Rixo.

The WashPost movie reviewer says Lovers of pomp, pageantry and extravagant period detail will find themselves exceedingly well served by "The Young Victoria,". No mention of dance, but there's surely costumes.

I've just updated this post to note that the Sunday tea dance has been canceled due to severe weather conditions. Fooey!

Worst of all possible worlds: stuck in Boston and no gig.


That sounds like the title of a movie for the Independent Film Channel.

Susan... Hopefully, in case of such dire situations, you brought with you some of the considerable amount of fiction that normally encumber your home's premises.

I had a book with me, but I mostly sat and talked to my hostess, who is a very good friend (and the widow of my dance-research-mentor, as well as a researcher herself). We don't get a lot of time to just hang out when neither of us is rushing out the door to run a dance, so it was nice and relaxing. Then we shoveled snow, which was a pain. But I got home in about three hours, which is not much worse than usual (2.5). The local roads were a mess but once I hit the highway everything was clear and smooth sailing the whole distance. Tomorrow morning I have to get up early and shovel my snow, but I didn't have the heart to do it tonight.

Susan... I'm glad to read that there was a silver lining to the inclement weather.

I think I'm done with movies for awhile, other than perhaps Avatar, which I probably ought to see just because it's likely to show up on the Hugo ballot.
