11:40 pm - Seattlemania has been fun!

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

But tomorrow it's time to start heading home.

Fun stuff: meeting IRC friends again, going to fun new restaurants, a chance meeting with Aeto at the Aquarium, finding interesting books and videos (I got Helvetica and two Jacques Tatis!)

Not so fun stuff: the leg pain that still hasn't gone away. Guess I better see a doctor when I get home.

Tomorrow I head back to the Rodeway Inn in Baker City, Oregon, which doesn't have internet, so you probably won't hear from me till Thursday.

Was one of the videos the just-released Trafic by any chance? :)

Nope, the store only had two Tatis for sale. (Look at me being all artsy, saying "Tatis" like a gallery owner would say "Matisses" or "Modiglianis".) I got "M. Hulot's Holiday" and "Mon Oncle" (the two best ones IMO).

Yeah, I didn't get to meet up with tracerj either. I must plan to visit Seattle again soon! (Though I ain't driving all that way again if I can help it!)

In fact, I shall visit Seattle again soon... provided no one was stupid enough to have brought one of those thingy-deals into the city!

And is a Helvetica book written entirely in Helvetica? Or are you referring to the movie, where the dialogue is entirely in Helvetica font?

D'oh, wish I had Helvetica installed on this laptop, but I hear it's really expensive. :} It's a movie, a documentary about the font, its design, and its impact on the world.
