Today, I stood up for myself.
As I waited for the elevator, contemplating the election, a co-worker approached and said, “Smile.” Contrary to my usual polite compliance, I looked at him and said, “No. I don’t have to smile just because someone is looking at me.” We rode the elevator in silence until I reached my floor and said, with a genuine smile, “Have a good day.” He responded in kind.

Another fantastic NFMLA festival. I was able to catch two of the three shorts series and meet several wonderful filmmakers. Here are some highlights.
Samnang. Endearing and funny, I was amazed to learn this was the lead actor’s first film. I could have watched this story for hours, and I still have a lingering desire to eat more doughnuts than would be medically advisable.
#twitterkills. At a crisp 11 minutes, I kept laughing and checked my laptop at home to ensure my safety when stretching the truth in tweets.
