Hmm—one of the few drawbacks to the tabbed browsing in the new version of Safari is that it's too easy to lose track of a window and accidentally close it, and thereby to (for example) lose a half-written journal entry.
So I'll start over. Tonight, following Tim & Heather's lead, went to see Adaptation with Susan at that East Bay movie theatre where they serve you dinner (and alcohol) in the theatre. It's a very odd and very interesting movie. I liked it quite a lot, but didn't love it as much as some folks have. The multi-level self-referentiality is very nicely done. I'm astonished that this movie was written, and even more astonished that it got made; the idea is not exactly what one might call commercial. But I suppose Being John Malkovich gave Jonze and Kaufman the leverage they needed.
I was going to say this was Nicholas Cage's best work in years, but then I realized I hadn't seen anything of his since '97-'98, so I can't judge that. But he did a very good job. I totally didn't recognize Chris Cooper, though I liked him a lot as usual.
Afterward, we stopped by Tamara's party briefly, but there weren't many people we knew and we weren't in the mood for crowds anyway. But we did look through a way cool book of animal origami—step-by-step instructions on how to make origami Tyrannosaurus rex, frogs with toes, spiders, giraffes, etc.
