confused, angry

(no subject)

Project Big-Move-East has hit a snag. Not a deathly snag, but a snag. My moving partner isn't going, so now it's just me. This complicates things in the same way it simplifies things. On one hand, there's no coordination issues. On the other, all the plans about how things were going to work just disintegrated, so I need to make new ones. I don't see how this is going to change my final destination or the time frame, but it does change a couple of details, that's all. Unless things go turbo wonky (wonkier).

EDIT: NEVER THE FREAKING MIND he's back on. Couple of details different, but same plot.
graphic design, babies

Let's talk about something that's /not/ moving.

I forgot to mention! A couple of weeks ago, we saw Coraline one and a half times. See, the first time we tried, the power went out half-way through, so we had to get readmission tickets and come back the next week. Thus, one-and-half times. It was well worth it: the animation was impressive, especially this scene with two dozen jumping circus mice moving around with hypnotizing coordination. It's stop motion showboating, and absolutely unforgettable. I'd read the graphic novel adaptation during the summer, so the plot wasn't much of a surprise, but it's amazing how that doesn't matter with this one. If you haven't seen it yet, you should do it while you have the chance.
