Can I help you...(out the door)? --- Day 6/297

Walk: PGCC
Distance:  Up/Down, maybe 2 blocks total, exercises, then major icing 

Here's a job you don't want to have right now: staff at Ciwt's club.  It's holiday time so there are club functions galore as well as multiple rentals by outside organizations giving their Huge annual luncheons.  On top of that, the club is being remodeled; there's intermittent clanging, banging and shaking and something has gone wrong with the heat and sometimes the electricity.

To use up her food minimum before the club closes for the annual three week winter break Ciwt made a second trip there in as many days.  She couldn't help but notice that the usually ultra friendly staff was barely able to force smiles.  Clearly they are living for the day the club closes and they can get away from all of us.  (Nothing personal; they've just had it.  And Ciwt totally gets it).

Not a Sucker --- Day 6/295

Walk: PT, Fillmore, PGCC, Union Square
Distance: 1.3 miles, the usual exercises plus

A Christmas Story: The Musical

Ooops, Ciwt forgot to write when she came home from the theater last night.  Probably because she was still bored to death by the play.  It was chock full of romping and singing children and adults in the olden midwest at old timey Christmas time.  Ciwt is not a sucker for these types of stories...

Two Gustav(e)s ---- Day 6/302

Walk: Legion of Honor (Klimt and Rodin; Gods and Goddesses in Living Color)
Distance: 6 blocks, lots of exercises, asanas, pedaling

Gustave Rodin, The Kiss (reduced, 1904) . (After) Gustav Klimp, Beethoven Frieze, 1904 (copied 1964)
The Legion has done a superb job rearranging the Rodins in their outstanding permanent collection of the sculptors's works and pairing them delicately and meaningfully with the visiting Klimp paintings.
A gorgeous show and very rare opportunity to see so many Klimp works which hardly ever travel from Europe.

Endearing Disaster --- Day 6/301

Walk: PT, AMC Dine-in Kabuki (The Disaster Artist)
Distance: 1.3 miles (against pt advice but had to do something besides exerises),  pt exercises and stretches

James Franco in The Disaster Artist

Ciwt found The Disaster Artist entertaining and endearing in a very peculiar way.  Also deep, again in a way that is difficult to pinpoint.  Excellent movie making technically and for some reason - even when the movie is going nowhere - the acting is riveting.  It captures but doesn not explaing the elusive line between horrendous egotistical disturbance and laughable farce.  Ciwt says see it; probably it will get nominated and maybe win some awards.
