My commute changed last week — again.

In a nine month stretch, I have had three different commutes. It’s a little like the first day of school: part exciting, part awkward.

Why isn’t Erika Christensen getting better big screen roles?

She is spectacular in Traffic, one of the eight or so DVDs I own and thus in heavy rotation given that Time Warner Cable won’t set me up for another week. As a result, I am wondering why Erika Christensen hasn’t had better film roles.

I watch her on Parenthood where I think she’s largely wasted (not to mention miscast).

She has kept a very low profile. Googling “Erika Christensen” only turns up a smattering of information including the fact that she is a Scientologist.

These are the things I contemplate when I should be doing things like, oh, unpacking my new apartment.
