I've known for several months that I'm being furloughed at work (our whole staff is) for the next week. It comes with the territory, I suppose, working at a nonprofit in a down economy. Not a huge deal except for the loss of five vacation days.
Since my original pie-in-the-sky travel plans didn't come together, it's going to be a week busying myself, for fun, in Minneapolis. There are literally a million things I'm hoping to do during this free week and just as many that I won't find time to, but to make it easier I'm also going to take time off from what feels sometimes like a second job - Getafilm. So, I won't post anything new until early next week. Seeing as how I'm not accountable to anyone but myself here, it's a pretty liberating feeling.
In the meantime, there are some marathon posts to read below from the last couple of weeks. Thanks much for reading and I look forward to coming back online and continuing the neverending movie conversation next week.
