Nice Bag

I’ve been riding Link light rail home quite a lot this week. On Tuesday, I rode it home because my hold on The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou had arrived at the Capitol Hill Library. I rode it home on Wednesday because I had an appointment with my chiropractor.

It’s not that I need a reason to ride light rail. It’s just that, unless I have something to attend to up on Broadway, it’s more convenient for me to ride the 47 bus home.

I rode it home today. We’d watched The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou last night, and I had two more Wes Anderson DVDs – Moonrise Kingdom and Fantastic Mr. Fox – ready for pickup.

I trained a new employee at work today, who actually didn’t need much training, but I had to start work early, and, of course, leave early.

Two Fare Inspectors boarded the same car as me at Westlake Station this evening. The one who checked my ORCA card also complemented me on my Cthulhu-patterned bag. He then told me that he has a cat named Cthulhu. (I didn’t tell him that I’m not really into the whole Cthulhu mythos – I just like the design.)

I dropped off one Wes Anderson DVD at the library, and picked up two more.

We’d both seen The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou long ago, but, it turned out, we’d both forgotten most of it. I loved it a lot. I listened to someone’s YouTube review today – he had an interesting view that the whole movie was actually narrated by Steve Zissou, who, the reviewer pointed out, is an unreliable narrator, which explains the movie’s fantastical elements.

  1. That’s maybe my favorite movie (so far, for now, that I can remember) ever! Meaning “The Life Aquatic”.

    And, “Mr Fox” was surprisingly harrowing for an animated kid movie, didn’t you think? I did like the contemplate/pounce/devour way Mr Fox eats and I think of it often if I eat something delicious more rapidly than I expected.

    • We watched Mr Fox last night. I knew it was animated, but I didn’t know it was going to be a children’s movie until the preview for other kids’ movies began. Then the movie started and it didn’t seem like a kid’s movie at all – like you said, it was pretty harrowing. It wasn’t one of my favorite Wes Anderson films.
