Things that happened yesterday, Easter Sunday.
1. I went to see Waking Sleeping Beauty. Yes, again. Don’t judge! There was a Q&A following the screening with director Don Hahn and producer Peter Schneider that was really interesting, informative and pretty frank (just like the documentary) about Michael Eisner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and others. They talked about how cooperative everyone was with the project, and how they like to think they created a really effective documentary that tells the story of the time, which I totally agree with. This is now the second time I’ve ranted about this documentary, but seriously it’s SO GOOD. I mean, there is talk of margaritas, and funny caricatures. What more do you need?
2. Did I mention that partway through the movie we had an earthquake? First, I thought someone kicked the back of my chair. Then I realized everyone was turning around wondering why the people behind them were kicking THEIR seats. Then I thought maybe they had decided to turn this documentary into a 4D feature and the moving floor was part of the show. Then as it slowed and stopped finally someone said “that was an earthquake. huh.” I’m glad we were all so absorbed in the movie that no one thought to leave for safety reasons. We are just that badass. Or giant nerds. Whichever.
3. After the movie, I came home to do the most fun thing ever: TAXES! WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO. My mom was awesome and went over it with me on the phone (where it was getting kinda late honestly, stupid time zones!) and it surprisingly wasn’t too hard. Granted I was doing the 1040A and the whatever-the-equivalent-state-form-was which are like 3 pages each max. So it was manageable and now I’m done and can mail it out BEFORE crazy insane tax day go me!
Not procrastinating for once is actually kinda nice.
I should do it more often!!
