Where nobody knows your name.......or cares

At lunchtime today I had to run the gauntlet of several film crews on the main street of the capital. I vaguely recognised an actor, but was too busy dashing for sushi to dwell too much on where I'd seen him last. I can say with some authority that the rest of the lunchtime traffic looked like they felt the same way, and the whole "we're filming something important" was actually treated by the foot traffic as "Oh, please move, I only have a 20 minute lunch break!" If one of them had happened to be height challenged with hairy feet, it may have been a different story.

Some years ago, they were filming "Jingle All the Way" with Arnold Schwartzenegger just two blocks from where I worked at an insurance company in downtown St Paul MN. A few fellow employees wandered over to watch it but I didn't since it would take up too much of my lunch break. As it turned out, it was a really stupid movie!
