    Default Today I want to chit chat about should I go to toronto today?

    poll coming.

    My friend has been working on this documentary for like 3 years. I've been waiting VERY impatiently for its release. I've got friends in it, not to mention the mighty mighty ron hawkins ) plus I will likely catch a glimpse of myself in the crowd scenes now and again LOL.

    YouTube - Born To It - preview #1 (It's worth watching the whole thing, seriously. It's a great film.)

    There is a premiere tonight in Toronto, with a screening followed by a performance by all the folks in the film. I will see old friends and get lots of delightful squeezy hugs and be able to share the joy of seeing literally YEARS of my friend's work coming to fruition. Because it's a pretty specialized focus, my friend believes this will be the only screening. I disagree, and have arranged to be his date for the oscars next year, of course. But seriously, it could be my only chance to see it on the big screen, surrounded by people who love Tim and love the artists in the film.

    Buuuuut, it's a work/school night, and I wouldn't get home until between midnight and 1 am. Mr Zoo was away all week. I have craploads of housework to do and would have to leave at 4pm. We just moved my mom out yesterday and things are a bit raw.

    When I brought it up last night, he said 'do what ya gotta do, you know that.' And it wasn't in a passive aggressive "you do this, I will act jerky for a couple of days," either. I just feel like somehow I need to justify going.

    Gah, I dunno, help. Should I stay or should I go?

    ETA:

    ok, seriously how did I screw up the poll??

    If a mod can fix it, super!

    1. of course you should go, zoo, you know you'll never forgive yourself if you don't.
    2. don't do it! focus on your family today and tonight! Bake something or whatever.
    3. who is this delightful ron hawkins and how can I find out more about his wonderful music?

    Go. And between now and then forget the housework, spend some time with your family. It gets dark at 5:00 - so really 3:00 is almost the end of the day anyways

    It's really only a half-day that you'd be gone. I say go. Maybe run the kids out of energy before you do?
