L'Homme du Train...et trop de pleuvoir. Tabernac!

It was raining this morning. Again. Or still...I'm not sure any more. So I (rather unimaginitively) decided to see a movie. I walked to Kendall and saw L'Homme du Train. (Which title makes more sense than the English: it means "Man from the Train" where the English title is "Man on the Train." He's only on the train for the opening scene, but he's from the train the whole movie. It's an interesting character study of two men, a former stuntman/current thief and a retired poetry teacher, who each covet the other's life. I mainly went to see it because it stars Johnny Hallyday, who is this incredible pop icon in France...up there in magnitude with Sammy Davis Jr. or Wayne Newton. You make fun of him, you love him, you hate him...but he's a big name. He's also a decent actor. He looks feral, like a wolf...yet there's a scene where he crushes one of his Gitanes into a pipe and smokes it while reading...he's a wolf who longs for domestication...while the lapdog he stays with hears the call of the wild.
After the movie I walked back up to Harvard and did some shopping: I decided I needed a more cheerful milk/juice/wine glass so I hit Crate and Barrel...I was also looking for an egg cutter but the one they had was too expensive. I stopped into Tealuxe for a Genmai Cha latte to get up the courage to walk the rest of the way home. It was raining harder than ever...and I got soaked.
Sorry, I'd rather have it be 20° and clear than 50° and pouring. This sucks.
