Quick post. Saturday night we rented some movies. Mirrormask and "Por no quedar pobre". Guess what. Neil again did an excellent job. Sorry but I'm becoming used to Neil's ever creative imagination... I mean he always is behind great work. And I really like his work, but in a metalevel... He is just once again brilliant. Am I making sense? On the other side of the coin, there's that Spanish film. About 3/5 crap. Or maybe I just didn't get it. The box said "Comedy" but it's just pornography. Why did I finish seeing it? Because I had some hope it could be both. Once I wondered with allan if it was possible to make porn with actual content and a mix with other genres. For example there is the popular romantic-comedy... Anyway see the first, don't waste time on the other one.

Just an hour ago I gave ride to a girl. The thing is she is kinda... Different. Maybe she cares too much about her image, she wants to be seen as a smart girl too much. Rather rational and is certainly elitist. So we went all the road discussing about her work. How people don't work as she expected. The relevant thing here is that I usually try to dilute my argument, 'cause I don't want to hurt feelings. However she started telling how people act all to juvenile. How they don't act with self-discipline or professionalism. How they complain that she is too straight. So this time I acted just like she seems to be. I asked her to be professional and know her people. And straight forward tell her, she wasn't doing a good job. She was rather short, 'cause she wasn't acting according to reality. That it had no logic to assume people were rational, so avoiding being emotional was affecting her performance. I saw that at some point my pure straight argument was hurting her. So I continue asking for professionalism, to face feedback as objective as possible, not personal. Anyway, it was completely weird. At one point I felt bad, because, I shouldn't treat people like that, but it was refreshing, just telling objectively where shortcomings are. Felt like a mentat.
