No post for you this morning, as I am keeping my pedal to the grindstone. Nose to the metal? Something like that.
Instead I present, for your edification:
I watched Dark Water last night. If you like Hitchcockian thrillers in the vein of Vertigo, rent it. Apart from a couple of moments that made me say “what? as if that would happen!”, it was a very enjoyable 105 minutes. The pacing was good, and the fear of protagonist Dahlia (played by the ever-beautiful Jennifer Connelly) was palpable. Not a fan of the ending, which seemed a bit grafty, but it doesn’t take much away from an otherwise great film. Put out the light for maximum effect. 7.5/10.
I’ve been cooped-up inside all week, so when Patrícia asked if I’d like to check out a photo gallery downtown I had no hesitation. Well, except for the making-lunch-and-getting-a-haircut hesitation. But none after that. On a side note, ahhh… it feels so good to have short hair. It’s what I’d quantify as “hot as hell” outside.

You can probably classify cities as introverted or extroverted. Heck, if you were ambitious you could probably run the entire Myers-Briggs on one.
For example, I’d say Victoria would lean toward introverted (lots going on, once you find it) while Montreal would be extroverted (festivals out the ying yang).
