So this is how my mind works, for good or bad

Classic example of how my brain operates. I ask John to remind me what our friend Tim is producing over in London. He says, "a new film with Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson." "Oh, who's directing?" I ask. "The guy who made Jump Tomorrow." "Tom Gilroy?" I ask, remembering meeting him and chatting at a Gotham Awards years ago. "NO!", John says, "But that's exactly what you said last time."

So why the connection? Because Tom had directed a film called Spring Forward, and in my mind, somehow that's indistinguishable from Jump Tomorrow. Sheesh, the beauties of an associative mind.
