Was planning a good writing day today. Ready to go and at the desk at 9am. Booted up computer and immediately spilled coffee, perfectly nailing my keyboard in the most complete way. Goodbye, workday. Hello, futile keyboard disassembly and cleaning followed by trip to the Apple store (which has become over the years some kind of formless commerce hive that now sort of gives me the creeps).

I know plenty of others have gone before me in this yet I’m still trying to figure what my brain did to so perfectly launch my coffee cup. And why.

Upgrades are done early. Far ahead of Labor Day. Woo-hoo!

New York Women in Film and Television is screening Running in High Heels at the Anthology Film Archives on September 25 at 7pm. The film is only 85 minutes so I’m doing a Q&A afterward. (I may invite some local political candidates to join me.) I just found out that there’s an after-screening party with cash bar and complimentary food at Dempsey’s Pub, 61 2nd Avenue. So, free food. Hope to see you there.
