recently i realised that i have free canadian long distance on my phone plan. which suddenly makes my sister seem so much closer. especially when i'm wandering around Superstore looking for elusive 2006 calendars.
talking with rebecca was nice.
when i got to agnes' place she was watching in her shoes with her mom. so i joined in and felt a strange kinship with the characters because i'd just reconnected with my sister in some subtle way.
proof that i'm getting old: movies start making me sentimental.
further proof that i'm old: i can't believe that independence day came out 10 years ago. seems like it was just yesterday that we were sitting in a movie theatre making fun of the whole thing. we did that today at home, and it was possibly even more fun due to the physics and philosophy and sexual politics that was brought into the discussion, but it doesn't seem like it's been 10 years since i did that. it feels like it was just last year.
course, i'm sure old people say the same thing about casablanca.
wasn't it great when uploading a computer virus at a slow dial-up rate could save the world?
