Savannah Is Warm

Awards Daily‘s Sasha Stone is arriving at the Savannah Film Festival tomorrow. She told me a day or two ago that she heard it might be “cold.” (When women say “cold,” they mean cool, brisk, sweater weather, etc.) Well, I got here about two hours ago and it’s almost like Palm Beach — it’s T-shirt weather, a bit warmer than Los Angeles.

I arrived at the Marshall House, the festival’s nerve center, around 9:15 or so, and right away I got into it with the staff about my midget-sized room, but that issue’s resolved now…or at least for the time being.

They tried to put me in a room the size of janitor’s closet. “Fellas, I have to have a desk and a chair,” I said. “That’s why the festival brought me here. To write and file and run photos of the festival from my computer, so I really do need a desk. Really.” It took a little time to get this point across (they hemmed, they hawed, they side-stepped), but they finally relented and gave me a room with a desk. Thank you.

  1. I second what Travis said.

    Sometimes, it’s almost like a competition, who can be colder and more put out by where they are. It’ll be 76 degrees, but, dear god, the sun goes down, and some girls are pulling out scarves and pulling on coats, crying “I’m sooooo cold!” while their friends insist that no, they are actually even colder.

    I was in a restaurant a few weeks ago, and, no joke, this woman came in and, before she even sat down, laid into the server about how cold it was. It was in the mid 70s outside, but she had on a jacket and a hooded sweatshirt. When the server said she’d see what she could do, the woman finally sat down. But not before putting on a big show of putting on her coat and PULLING HER HOOD OVER HER HEAD. It was like she thought a blizzard was about to hit.

    Some people just cannot roll with anything that even slightly bothers them.

  2. Be sure to stroll by Paula Deen’s restaurant at some time during the day. Not because you’d ever eat there (though I hear the pear cake is delish). But because the enormous line of tourists waiting to gorge themselves on her southern treats may prove the ultimate wellspring of Wellsian contempt.

    Oh, and I hope you brought rain gear. Sasha’s right. Front’s coming through. (If he forgot, could I trouble you Sasha to take a photo of Jeffrey in a cheap poncho? Thanks.)
