Warm Rain * Lost & Found Umbrella

Wake up to a rainy morning, soft warm rain. Forecast is promising many sunny days after this rain cloud passes. Shuttle driver is joking about reindeer. happy morning.

Turned out it was only raining in the City. It was dry when i got off the shuttle and promptly forgot my umbrella on the shuttle.

My small “London Fog” fold up umbrella with black, white, blue and pink cats. I’ve had it for over four years. It went with me to Paris and Pompeii.

As I walked over to our evening shuttle stop and wondering whether i should call ZM to come and pick me up when i got home since it is raining in the city again. I saw the shuttle driver from my morning bus, he was walking into the “Lost and Found” office, with my umbrella! 🙂

All is well ends well.

Dying to See “Up in the Air”

Over the weekend, I realized the new movie “Up in the Air” is by the same director who brought us “Thank you for smoking” and “Juno”. My interests was piqued. I just finished reading Anthony Lane’s review of it on the latest New Yorker, and he liked it!  That is very rare.  Now i definitely want to watch the movie.

So i went over to watch the trailers and some clips. They were hilarious! Brought back flood of memories from the old days when i used to travel/live for the miles! Now i’m dying to watch this movie!

A couple of FreshAir interviews relate to “Up in the Air”
