Yesterday was spent doing... stuff! Too often I am defeated by my own inertia and by sunday night I groan about the waste of the weekend. But yesterday was wonderful, packed with productivity, good friends and fun. So no regrets about yesterday at all, which is rare for me.
Yesterday morning sydneycat
and I attacked sydmor's kitchen with a vengeance and made a fair amount of progress in there whist both caterwauling to KMFDM and other gothy stuff (guess what, people, dead stars still burn!
) then we hauled all the boxes we broke down and the trash downstairs. So that was grand and it earned both of us lots of loving from the boy and Wings for dinner. Yay Wings. I may miss Teapot and Taipei and Tokyo, but moving to Amherst definitely ups the opportunity to order Wings and Brunos.
Directly after the spate of cleaning, inle_rah
showed up and after a bit of conferring over the computer set out to see The Brothers Grimm
which was charmingly, weirdly, ridiculous and silly. Good god, something is very wrong with Terry Gilliam. Need to watch Brazil
again, I think. But anyway, we had a good time, and then inle_rah
drove home to take a nap, and I headed back upstairs.
The October Rewind, I found out, is on my birthday. How cool is that shit? Course - it'd be nice if we knew what it was. If it's Scream
, I'm skipping it, though I'll probably still hold court at the diner beforehand. :)
Hung out with sundart
for a bit, then went upstairs to hang out and wait for morlock
to come home from work... though when he got out, he called sydneycat
's phone and with some cheerfully phrased cryptic questions alerted us to the fact that he was plotting something nefarious, and still didn't tell us when he at last got home. Instead we all put on our shoes and went over to Quadtower Annex (ie, anzovin's) to interrupt anzovin
's and sundart
's shenanigans and bully them back into clothes, whereupon morlock
revealed that he had gotten his hands on the first few episodes of Firefly
and we were all hereby ordered to head back to sydmor's to watch it, lured with bribes of dinner, brownies and hangings out with the Amoeba. Much with the joymaking - though the boyos had seen it already, we all did thoroughly enjoy watching it together.
I had been expecting Firefly
to be no less than excellent, being already a fan of anything associated with "Grr. Arrgh," and having seen bits of it already. So I had a fabulous time with it, especially watching it with the Amoeba, as there was much with the commentary, bickering, brownies, comparisons drawn between it and Cowboy Bebop
, drooling over Mal and Kaylee and occasionally Inara (but you're supposed
to drool at Inara and that's not nearly as much fun) and yelling at pretty much all of the characters whenever they did something particularly brainless or asinine.
So it seems I might indeed get to watch Firefly
comes out. Thank you, morlock
. (Though that doesn't mean I might not stop in for a couple of eps during athaerith's proposed marathon the weekend before. ;) )
so yeah - busy wonderful day. And today I didn't exactly sleep in, but I did stay abed reading until 11:30, so it's high time I got up and dispensed with the rest of today in a slightly more useful fashion... though from sundart
's tone of voice, I have a feeling that the dispension will start with heading back to bed. S'cuse me. :D
