So this is pretty exciting – tomorrow a film I produced will be showing at the Woods Hole Film Festival, which basically means that I have a perfect excuse to take Friday off and lay on the beach all weekend. Not bad. It feels like I should be more thrilled. I’ve never had a film in a fest before, not that I’ve made all that many, but it feels like I should be ECSTATIC and PROUDLY AMAZED but I’m more like “eh – get me a long island iced tea and set me up by the waves”
Maybe it’s just my state of mind lately. I’ve spent the last two days screaming at anyone who stood around long enough to piss me off (that length of time being approximately 2.5 seconds). I’m a fan of the sample interactions, so here goes:
Co-worker: (dejectedly) I saw that email
e$: and what did you think?
Co-worker: um (stares blankly at e$)
e$: Do you have a response?
CO-worker: I’m thinking… (continues staring)
e$: WELL DO YOUR GODDAMN THINKING SOMEWHERE ELSE. I CAN’T DEAL WITH YOU STARING AT ME. LEAVE ME ALONE.
katsu: I was thinking of staying late at work
e$: DON’T EVEN BOTHER COMING HOME THEN. HOW CAN YOU CALL ME UP AT QUARTER OF SIX AND JUST DECIDE TO STAY LATE. YOU HAVE RUINED MY WHOLE NIGHT.
and this morning
katsu: I’m going to hop in the shower
e$: JESUS CHRIST COULD YOU HAVE TAKEN ANY LONGER??? NOW I’M GOING TO BE LATE FOR WORK. WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR PROBLEM, YOU SHOWER-GRUBBING BASTARD.
So yeah, let’s hope that the black mood lifts by tomorrow night, otherwise I might kill something during the Filmmaker’s Q&A.
