Not dead, or missing, or sick

Posted by on Monday, July 9th, 2007

Just working really really hard.  The big new site launches Thursday afternoon, so testing testing testing. 

And Deadwood.  Though Deadwood is gone now.  Sigh.  How could they cancel that show? 

And the Transformers, which I never saw as a kid, and Rowan never saw as a kid, but Scott and Bodwin were excited about.  It was, um, very smashy.  And they do lots of that tight-frame CGI-stuff, which looks to me like lazy animation.  I think MTV is to blame.  Still fun though.  And the pontificating robots apparently ring true to fans.   

And the Smithsonian Folklife Festival–pictures and film coming soon.  Tommy Sands–good as ever.  Food from the Mekong valley–good as ever.  Unfortunately, um, a Mummer from Aughakillymaude was threatening to impregnate me with some braided wheat and a horse costume.  Now, obviously, his understanding of physiology and reproduction was sketchy.  And he  didn’t understand why I avowed Scott would be quite displeased or why I disliked the idea so intensely.  Some boyos can’t take a hint.  To make things worse, he claimed the Mummer-induced pregnancies also only last six months.  Since when has prematurity been something to shoot for, exactly?  I thought full term was still the way to go . . .  when I was living in Dublin, I did work on that whole birthing reform legislation project, and they were rooting for full-term pregnancies, breast-feeding, and better prenatal care for rural Moms.  The North can’t be that different, can it?  Thankfully, I was with people who supported my right to avoid Mummer freakiness.

Also, a great deal of sewing happening, and cutting fabric, and plotting, and some minor sock-knitting. 

Oh, and rereading book five of the Harry Potter series.  Scott’s company is hosting a sneak preview tomorrow afternoon, and he got us tickets.  So I decided a quick re-read was in order.  A quick re-read of nearly 900 pages.  I hope the movie is good–I shunted aside a Puitzer-winning novel to support the cause, so I’ll be hella pissed if the movie is bad.

    I was just thinking about you last night. And as for the mummer boy, didn’t you know that his interest in your body is WAY more important than your right to not be bothered or interested? He has priority.
    Or something.

    Damn mummers. (Yes, I had to google to find out what a mummer is. So sue me.) Hope you’re seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

    I think you are going to really like the HP movie(saw a sneak preview last night). The casting of new characters was perfect. I won’t say any more so I don’t ruin it for you.

    Oooh. I’ll have to tell Caz about your Transformers review. “Very smashy” is exactly what he looks for in a movie. grin!

    I’m rereading book 6 in preparation for book 7.. can’t wait. And can’t wait for the movie too! Delores Umbridge looks just deliciously evil.
