Oh, I am so bummed! The Chinese restaurant movie was the second film to sell out at the SF International Asian American Film Festival! I went to buy tickets yesterday & they said they had sold out the day before! Doh!

The first film to sell out was the opening night gala feature, so I guess I should take this as a good sign that people are so madly interested in Chinese restaurants. But still, I can't believe I'm gonna have to stand in the hope line, praying that I get in. Don't you think that I, of all people, need to see this film? I mean, normally I don't go around thinking of myself as somehow more special than other people, but in this case I hope you'll agree I've been paying my dues. Haven't I? Or is all this grant proposal writing warping my perspective? (Probably.)
