I've been trying to stay at home as much as possible lately, because it's just too damn cold. It cannot go on this way. What am I going to do if I ever do emigrate to Montreal?!? So now I'm taking steps toward a healthy social life. (On second thought: never mind healthy. It just needs to be.)

Tonight, I went to see a play in at a wonderful, tiny little venue called Air Studio in Ginza. The play was called "Romance", and was acted out by fledgling actors. I bawled my eyes out. The main character is a girl who keeps moving, because the ghost of her dead boyfriend keeps following her everywhere she goes. It was just about the saddest thing I've seen since... well, if I told you that nothing made me cry more than Babe: Pig In The City and Deep Impact, it might cast a shadow of doubt on my taste. (Actually, FYI, the saddest movie in the world could be It's My Party. I refused to see Schindler's List because the trailer was more than I could take.) It's always inspiring to see young people working so hard at something they really love.

Since I am now on a roll, I have decided to be social tomorrow too. Flight Plan, with Jodie Foster, is playing at Roppongi Hills. I shall be there with my bucket of half-sweet, half-savoury popcorn and my geek glasses. And possibly non-Ugg shoes, as the forecast is for a snowy evening. Fingers crossed the popcorn is good tomorrow, because the last time I went they had the consistency of packing peanuts.

And, how's this for the height of socialdom? I am actually doing something this Valentines' Day that doesn't involve pajamas, fast food, or a season's worth of 24! A formal V-Day party at an unnamed chi-chi locale is on the agenda. Maybe I'll even meet someone. Who knows? The plot thickens (it better start thickening soon, anyway)...

I saw "Flight Plan" and I hated the ending. I think it is typical Hollywood crap. Maybe you should go see Brokeback Mountain instead.

See, THIS is what I hate about living in Tokyo. It takes soooo long for the movies to get here that by the time they are showing, you're no longer interested!

I'll definitely check out Brokeback when it comes out...

I agree with your pal "Flight Plan" stank BIG TIME. I saw it on the plane and the end was cheesy hollywood cheese. I hate hollywood right now as you know.

Does this have anything to do with the little white girl who was painted black in "King Kong"? The one who played the local tribal child on Skull Island?

That last scene in "Flight Plan" reminded me of "Con Air". It was horrendous.
