Past Week Miscellany

Item 1:

So, I was walking back from class the other day when I see this hullaballoo on the street. There’s a camera. There’s some trucks. There’s what looks like a nice sports car, but I’m not sure if that was just some random dude. Anyway, I’m on the street corner and there’s this guy talking to some people, giving them instructions on where to walk. He looks busy, but I decide to ask, “Can I ask what you’re shooting?” He says, “A movie.” In my head, I’m like, “No shit,” but I decide not to press the issue since he doesn’t look very happy. Luckily, he continues and says, “An Italian movie.” Then, I cross the street and go home.

I wonder what Italian movie they’re filming at Berkeley. Supposedly they did some filming for some movie at JHU last year but I don’t remember seeing any camera crews at all. I wonder if Cal will get an influx of Italian students applying.

Item 2:

Something compelled me to visit useit.com the other day. I do that every once in a while. Supposedly, e-mail newsletters are a good way to develop customer loyalty. I got a few e-mails from people asking for some kind of Chalkboard Manifesto e-mail update list. I told them no, but now I’m reconsidering.

Item 3:

The fog rolled in today. The window was open and I could feel the water in the air when I woke up this morning. Finally! I’m so glad the heat is over.
