Overheard at the theater.

"So what movie you gonna see?" asked the cashier.
"Surf's Up," I said.
"Oh, a surfing movie?" said the lady behind me.
"Surfing penguins," I said.
"Really?" she asked.
"It's a documentary," I said.

It was amazing to watch. I loved the hand held camera stuff. They had fun with the cameraman too. An animated movie that wasn't afraid to do slow motion! When the animation is lousy, they speed it up and blur. Not this flick. Awesome.

I got a submission posted for "Overheard in PDX" actually -- speaking of overheard.


From a bottleblonde on a cell phone in 4" platform/stiletto cork-soled sandals and painted-on jeans, standing on a corner near PSU:

"How do you know I spent 'way too much time' at the Starbucks?

you have a GPS on me?
you have a GPS on me?
you have a GPS on me?
you have a GPS on me?

(pauses for a breath and dramatic effect)

Do you have a GPS up my butt, ha?"
