Today was yet another insanely busy day of cleaning and hauling. Two trips to the dump this afternoon, one with a load of trash, which I’d loaded in our pickup yesterday, and another of recycleable goods, mostly paper, but some cardboard and metal.
I’m sorry, Racer, I haven’t had a chance to get to your lengthy comment & questions in the post the other day. I’ll try to get to it as soon as I can, although this weekend is the big push to get the house ready so we can sign the paperwork with the realtor on Monday.
I literally have been running myself ragged, and this evening I finally reached the "I can’t do no more" stage. After dinner (reheated lasagne — Stephanie’s vegetarian version, quite delish), I thought about doing more work, maybe pack away some stuff…but my bod said, "Uh uh, no way." So I watched an episode of South Park (my guilty pleasure…although I’m not finding the show all that enjoyable anymore… They have some funny moments, but it seems to be becoming too self-conscious and deliberately provoking).
Then I popped "King Kong" in the DVD player. I hadn’t seen this flm before, although I figured with Peter Jackson directing, and the writing crew from Lord of the Rings on the screenplay, it’d probably be good.
First of all, the CGI is jaw-droppingly good. Super incredible. Some really great moments between Kong and Anna, too, very well done, and if there were ever to be an Oscar for "Best CGI Actor", that giant gorilla ought to win, hands down.
On the downside, I thought it took entirely too long for everyone to get to Skull Island. Too much time spent on backstory, in my opinion. Made the movie drag for me.
Anyway, I’m gonna go crash — and again, Racer, I do promise a longer response to your query. Perhaps we can take some of our discussion offline, too.
Hope y’all have a good night. Oh, and Happy Easter Weekend, for those of you who observe such.
