Know where I am right now? I’m not at work! It’s the first day of the Wisconsin Film Festival, so My Darling B and I took today and the rest of the week off.

I could have gone to work. I could have spent another day working for The Man before we went to the opening of the film festival this evening. Yah. I can see how that could have been fun, just like I can see how bondage, domination and sado-masochism could be fun. Wait, no. No, I can’t see that. Totally blind to that, sorry.

But I’m not totally blind to movies. I could watch them all day long. In fact, on one or two days of the festival I will be watching movies all day long. I was remarking on this very fact when one of my coworkers asked me about it just the other day. “What do you do, just sit in the dark and watch movies?” she asked.

“Yes, that’s exactly what we do,” I said.

“What, all day? Just sit there? And watch?” Her tone of voice implied that not only couldn’t she understand the concept, she was having a lot of trouble even imagining it.

A friend of hers offered an explanation: “She’d have to sit still for more than five minutes, and you can’t talk in movies.” Another case of likes and dislikes again.
