The Galitz Journal for friends and family
Between traveling to visiting friends and family and being under the weather this past week, Iâve been feeling pretty guilty about not being able to get much work, exercise, and cello practice done this month.
Did get to see âSpiderman 3â? and âFractureâ? at the movies. Both okay but “Spiderman 2” was the best of the series and one shouldnât think too hard about âFractureâsâ? plot. Because I havenât felt well enough to do anything else, got to watch a bunch of videos at home: Idiocracy (tragic comic prophetic political movie?), The Joy Luck Club (this one was torture for Earl who dubbed it a girlie movie), Assassination Bureauâ? (fun oldie with Diana Rigg) along with a few documentaries âBBCâs Weird Nature and Comic Book Heroes Unmaskedâ?.
Earlâs having conniptions because his new passport hasnât arrived and its two weeks before the trip to St. Petersburg. He sent it for renewal on 3/27. He canât reach the passport office by email or phone. They donât even take messages. Also, he still needs to get a Russian Visa. I waited too long myself and will have to do the 3 day expedited visa process. Guess I was thinking subconsciously that we should submit our passports together for the visas. The worse case scenario will be that Iâll have to go to St. Petersburg by myself.
