Lunch@Applebee's, Adobe CS4 demo, dinner@Elmo's, and Revolutionary Road...

It was cold as frak this morning. If the bus had been one more minute in coming, the tops of my ears might have cracked off.

Once on however, I'll just say this, "Maniacal driving is not a quality I admire in a bus driver—particularly one who has my life in her hands."

Just terrible—drove too fast, braked too hard, and the bus skipped and hopped when accelerating, though that might have been something to do with the engine of the bus, although it was hard to tell.

I took the bus up Hillsborough Street and had lunch at Applebee's, where I had their lunch "Pick-a-Pair"—half of a California Club sandwich along with a small Oriental Chicken Salad. It was all good.

While there, and actually while I was in the men's room, Jen called to ask me if I wanted her to pick me up and take me over to Centennial Campus for a demo we were attending this afternoon.

I stepped outside of the men's room to take the call, and I accepted her most gracious and generous offer, as she was already over at Centennial Campus, and drover over specifically to get me.

The guy that demoed the Adobe CS4 products was hot. That's all I'm going to say about that.

Robert and I had dinner at Elmo's Diner in Durham, and then we went to see Revolutionary Road at the Carolina Theater.

Movie synopsis: April and Frank Wheeler are a young, thriving couple living with their two children in a Connecticut suburb in the mid-1950s. Their self-assured exterior masks a creeping frustration at their inability to feel fulfilled in their relationships or careers. Frank is mired in a well-paying but boring office job, and April is a housewife still mourning the demise of her hoped-for acting career.

Determined to identify themselves as superior to the mediocre sprawl of suburbanites who surround them, they decide to move to France where they will be better able to develop their true artistic sensibilities, free of the consumerist demands of capitalist America. As their relationship deteriorates into an endless cycle of squabbling, jealousy and recriminations, their trip and their dreams of self-fulfillment are thrown into jeopardy.

It was definitely my kind of movie, as it definitely did not have a Hollywood ending. It was interesting to see how much Leo and Kate had changed since the last time I'd seen them.
