Last night re-watched one of my most favorite movies of 2004. So of course all day today I kept thinking about bits and pieces of the movie...and memories...and relationships...and the whole ball of wax.
The first time I saw 'ESOTSM' I was speechless. I so completely related to both characters...it's almost like each character combined into a being that is so close to who I am (without the blue hair, tho). The Joel part of me that is cautious and quiet and withdrawn. And the Clementine part of me that is outgoing, impulsive, risk-taking and fearless. How they each had characteristics that supremely annoyed the other yet when it was all said and done, they couldn't live without each other. And the movie, for those who haven't seen it, documents the length they go to to do just that.
Today started out cold, overcast and chilly. It was great sleeping a little later than normal, snuggling under my comforter with the chilly air coming in thru the window right next to my bed. Reminded me of San Francisco in the morning. For close to two years I worked in San Francisco 3-4 days a week at my client's office. Their offices were in the Hamm's Bldg, a historical building in the Mission District, right across the street from the Hostess Bakery. Cold windy mornings that smelled like cupcakes...yum! Always a fond memory.
Talking to my clients thru-out the day, relationships seemed to be the theme of the day. Several clients going thru rough times, some happy times. A client's long-term relationship with his prized vehicle up in smoke...literally. Caught and fire and was totalled. He and his dog are ok thank goodness, but his ride and his pride are no more.
Tonite, was home alone for the longest time. Felt really good to have a chance to eat, do laundry, watch tv, blog and chat on the phone in silence and solitude. Don't get me wrong...I really like both my roomies quite a bit, but every now and then it is nice to have my place all to myself.
And now, as I'm ending my day, what do I find on tv? Some friends from around the corner from my old stomping ground in San Francisco...I used to visit here all the time.
Brings back memories.
