I’m trying to get past having lost 90 minutes of worth of work due to a sudden wifi reboot by the hotel’s server. Otherwise around 1 pm I’ll be moving into a sixth-floor place on rue Gassendi in Montparnasse, where I stayed with Jett in ’08. Followed by the much-awaited visit to the Stanley Kubrick exhibit at the Cinematheque Francais. And then, sometime this evening, a get-together with friends, including Santa Barbara Film Festival chief Roger Durling.

The larger glass is an ice-tea concoction, believe it or not. I don’t know how they gave it a foamy head (probably just by hitting a switch on the blender) but it’s very cool.
