In the on-going campaign to Americanize MoBob, I convinced him to accompany me to a midnight screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show tomorrow night. I haven't seen it since college myself, so it should be good fun. Or, at least, memorable.
I woke up early again today and was on-line with my colleague in Sri Lanka at 5:48am. I am really looking foward to sleeping in this weekend. Next week I'll be working on Pakistan - hopefully I won't have as many early mornings. I don't think MB or myself have seen each other awake this week.
Poetry fragment of the day:
(No. 4 of 'Four Quartets')
by T.S. Eliot
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
It's tamed up a lot since I was in college -- I think the last time I went was 15 years ago or so, but friends in casts and movie theatres that I know say that basically, theatres got tired of the mess, so there's less throwing things and more shouting. The problem with only shouting is that now there's like 30 years worth of shouting and everyone shouts their lines over everyone else's.
When I went in my early 20s, I was just amazed at how young all the kids there were. That was my biggest impression -- I felt aaaancient, being all of 22 or whatever I was.
