Finally saw Shrek. Yes, I know, it's an impossible travesty that I could have managed not to see it until now. I seem to have done that with a lot of movies. But I'm feeling better now (at least with regards to Shrek).

Yesterday: went to joystormer's dad's house[1], otherwise known as the Scary Christmas Animatronics Refuge (SCAR). Took some pictures, watched The Edge (had some technical goofs[2], but not bad - and I think I need to see more stuff with Anthony Hopkins. Damn, he's good).

Then came back to Seattle to a lovely party at krow's house. There was much interesting conversation. There was Invader Zim (magnificent, but damn, I wish there had been subtitles - understood about three lines. *sigh*). There was also a hot tub with fourteen people, no bathing suits, three rubber duckies, a plastic pufferfish, and miscellaneous wind-up floating things[3]. And there was much rejoicing.

[1]In Bonney Lake, which is supposedly right next to Mount Rainier. But I watched the whole way and *I* didn't see any mountain. I'm tellin ya, that thing's a matte painting!

[2]At least they applied the tourniquet *above* the gushing arterial wound. I saw a bad lethal-weapon-style b-movie once where a guy got shot and his partner put on a tourniquet *below* the wound. Oh yeah, *that's* going to help.

[3]More specifically: a shark, a wooden rubber-band boat, a gray submarine, a blue submarine, and a yellow submarine.

My hearing is quite poor and non-existant in one ear. When I first watched Zim I had to stop and rewind it constantly to figure out what was being said.

Glad you had fun!

We will ride around it when the weather clears.
It is very real and very beautiful.

I thought part of the joke was that they were speaking some Alien tounge. It was in English?
