WHEN: February 7, 2014, 6:00 pm. (Week 6, Feb 2-7.)
WHERE: My apartment in Portland, ME; the local Dunkin’ Donuts; the sidewalks between those two places.
FORMAT: DVD on a 19” AOC LED computer monitor; digital download on an iPhone 3.
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL STATE: Physically, mentally, and emotionally spent.
For the second week in a row, I have only barely been able to muster the mental energy to watch Avatar. I’m going through a rough time, and this is the last thing I feel like doing. In order to stay awake for the viewing, I needed coffee. Rather than delay the start of this interminable film while I walked to Dunkin’ Donuts, I took my iPhone with me and watched on the way (and covertly while I ordered).
This is just miserable. Minutes feel like hours.
I can’t watch this movie without something to distract me. So help me, I’m taking up knitting. I’m fucking doing it. Don’t even try to stop me.
I’m not analyzing this film. I can’t do that for a year. Henceforth, this is a knitting site.
For an explanation of why I was feeling lousy and not really up for talking about Avatar at this time, check out my results post for February.
