After I placed my WCIU distress call the other day, I quickly received a note back from Nikki in Chicago saying she had a contact. So my information is now where it needs to be! Thanks Nikki! I'm trying to plan a mid-winter trip with the Chicago boys. I'll say this, it ain't easy. Because I'm fighting a cold, I stayed in most of the day. As a result, I have cabin fever. I had hoped to see Souris Cité, or Flushed Away, but of course French cinemas don't show the animated feature during the day. Don't even get me started...don't get me started. Well, now that I'm started, I saw Casino Royale on Wednesday night. I thought it was OK. But that might have had something to do with the fact that I had "back sweat" while standing in line to enter the theatre. And once inside, I stuck to my chair. I even planned for the heat by changing into a t-shirt. To top it off, someone behind me was coughing through the whole movie. CRIKEY! Stay home if you're sick. Especially in a theatre where the heat index is promoting the growth of nasty spores! Looks like the Instinct Magazine article will happen in February. I received an edit from them today but it needs a bit of revising.
