notorious procrastinator

"Dev, is that you? I'm glad you're late. This chicken took longer than I expected. I hope it isn't done too much. It caught fire once."
-Ingrid Bergman, Notorious

First of all, if you hear me complaining about how tired I am tomorrow, kindly sock me in the jaw. I deserve it. I am knowingly bringing this upon myself. It's fine.

Only a true film nerd would sit in the library at 12:41 a.m., reading editions of The New Yorker from 1946 (I'm supposed to be doing research for a panel discussion I'm leading tomorrow morning for Hitchcock's Notorious).

So, I've been leafing through all of these articles, and longing to be in the club of people who regard this particular time period as the "good old days."

And then, I stumble upon this advertisement:

"Makers of Art: Hair Pieces
Inside transformations for young ladies (?!). Our 32 years of experience have made many disappointed people happy again."

Ah, the good old days, where disappointed people could be happy, and full of hair, again. There may have been really great things about the "good old days" but I am so glad that invisible hair transformations for young ladies have gone out with the Red Scare.
