val and i went to check out the leica m8 in bryn mawr. i think i've been cured of needing one. it still feels a bit like a big plastic lunchbox, though they've done a really good job of getting it to look like an m in the brochure. then we watched "the notrious betty page" which i found endearing and cute, and "the beat my heart skipped" -- a french film about a piano playing thug that didn't do very much for me.
ivan was one of city kitties success stories. he had brain damage as a kitten and as a result fell over a lot when he walked and had a lot of balance problems. the brain is an amazing thing. as ivan's gotten older he's gotten better. he still walks funny, but he's found a wonderful human mother who loves him.
