you don't remember when you saw the trailer for 'midnight'
you remember immediately thinking about owen wilson's suicide attempt after watching the trailer
you remember watching a series of interviews with wes anderson and owen wilson after watching the trailer
you remember 'revisiting' some woody allen movies after watching the trailer
you remember wanting, vaguely, to see the movie, but like... maybe... like... you thought it would be boring or 'indulgent' in the way that woody allen films always seem
you remember thinking—as you frequently do—'i would fuck rachel mcadams' and maybe feeling [something like 'guilty'] about it
you use your friend's laptop to move some photoshop files you worked on a month ago
to your new computer
you remember you downloaded the movie on your friend's laptop while she was on vacation and forgot about it
you ask your girlfriend if she wants to watch 'midnight'
she seems enthused about it, but says she has work to do
you tell her you are going to watch it but that you can watch it together later
you watch 'midnight' while designing some stationary for the hotel you work for
you tell your girlfriend that the movie 'isn't romantic... it's like... like a woody allen movie... you know how woody allen movies are... do you like woody allen movies...? it's like... dark... not romantic or anything really'
you think about doing work curating the art gallery at the hotel and plan to hang some 'pieces' at 5pm
at 8pm you start writing a 'critique' of 'midnight' and realize you haven't done any work and can't really remember what you did for the past four hours besides chug coffee and walk around the hotel aimlessly and think about working
