Today I watched 'Only Yesterday' (this is another movie made to be impossible to use in conversation, I think, much like 'Night Watch'). It was so cute... Initially mum wanted to turn over half an hour before the end, but she was enjoying listening to it so much (even if she can't understand spoken Japanese, it's still great to listen to), and I loved watching it, so she let me see the conclusion. It was absolutely adorable...

'Hogfather' is on tonight! It'll be interesting to see a live action adaptation of a Terry Pratchett book - if it's successful, there's always the chance of another. I live in hope of adaptations of the Tiffany Aching books, which are perfect for kids (strong protagonist, no 'talking down'), but are entertaining enough for adults.

But I certainly wouldn't turn my nose up at an adaptation of Maskerade... or... well, any of them, really. Although I think finding an effective Captain Carrot and Angua would be quite difficult.

It's weird enough seeing Marc Warren play Teatime.

I figured out why I have no money. Well, beyond the manga thing. When you preorder items, it's easy to forget how much they actually are. Especially when it's a limited edition Doctor Who box set. Which is now face down on the spare bed because I really don't want a cyberman staring at me. It's stuff like that.

I need to play more Guild Wars. But then, I found my copy of The Movies too, and I really need to play that more... And I need a job. And there are tons of other things I'm doing too, even without a job there's not enough time. It makes me wonder where it goes.

Well, I know where some of it went yesterday - shaving the dog, poor thing. 'Least she can jump out the back door now without falling over her own fur. We must have removed another dogs' worth of coat from her - if we'd done that Japanese thing where you make model dogs out of your pet's fur, we'd have had enough for an entire army of them. Wire dogs from floor to ceiling.

Disturbing thought.

Shaving the dog? You have really got to find some new hobbies... :P

Well, she was hairy. Seriously, smellily hairy...

Although once we had shaved her head, her huge and hairy back end made her look like an anteater... I wish I'd taken a photo of it.
