Waiting for a bus after seeing Wonder Woman with Andrew and the Diners. Andrew already wants to see it again on Sunday. I knew Gadot would be note-perfect, but I liked Pine as Steve Trevor much better than as Kirk; and the supporting cast were all fabulous, especially David Thespis, and Elena Anaya who seems to have been put there as a fic prompt for handful_ofdust -- she bears some resemblance to Rosa Steinberg of A Scent of New-Mown Hay. There's a great scene about three-quarters in, where Steve attempts to seduce her, and nearly succeeds, because he's clearly done enough research to know how to appeal to a genius chemist who's also fundamentally a pyromaniac.

Spent the morning and am currently spending the early afternoon running around on various errands, pausing variously to help someone womanhandle a massive area rug at the dry cleaners, buy stuff at the United Church rummage sale at Bathurst and College, and swat (with pool noodles and a rubber chicken) a volunteer masked up as Pepe the Frog at the anti-Islamophobia demo.
