Ex's --- Day 4/114

Walk: AMC Van Ness (Ex Machina), Japantown
Distance: 3.8 miles and home yoga

Ciwt took herself to Ex Machina, a movie about artificial intelligence and stared and stared at the superior visuals, excellent acting, beautiful female robot.  There was tension but for her it was along the lines of 'When is there going to be any action around here?"  Luckily, Oscar Isaac's character, a sort of 21st century genius/gorilla provided a lot of that.  She tried, but Ciwt had to admit to herself that she is still way back there struggling (since high school English) with the exact meaning of deus ex machina.  
 And as luck would have it, she came home to find in her mailbox her high school alumna magazine.  So she sat down and stared and stared and stared at the rolling Connecticut countrysideImage result for ethel walker school, the lovely historical buildings, the reports by ex-classmates and alumnae about families and their multi-generational estates, vacation homes and thoroughbred horses..  Almost as surreal as the sci fi movie.  Then she took a nap.
