I wonder when we'll start saying "twenty-oh-four" and so on. Think about the nineteen hundreds. So much easier. My guess is we'll be referring to it as "two thousand blah blah" for another 6 years, then things will change in 2010.

The other night I went to see "American Splendor." It was interesting and somewhat endearing, though I'd say the majority of moviegoers would find it slow. There's this little movie house down the street from me called The Red Vic, which runs some of the smallest and most obscure indie films around. It's one of the very best things on Haight Street. I love a small, intimate show once in a while.

During the previews before the movie, I got a chance to see what Macaulay Culkin's up to these days. Watch the trailer, and then let's all agree we're not, er, home alone anymore. Yuk, yuk.

I have to go back to work tomorrow after a glorious break from reality. Time to get outside and enjoy my last day of freedom!

PS- Ikea is evil.
