Various nefarious
Results of bed shopping:

Miraculously, we found an extremely comfortable mattress set for half price at Slumberland's clearance section. It is squishy and not bouncy and the right size. And it cost $448 for the whole thing. We also found a four poster + canopy bed frame. We get to put up our Moroccan bedroom curtains again! Yay!

Dutifully, we bought a gorgeous, satin comforter and pillow cases and 500 count cotton sheets. Our bed, come Thursday, will be so luxurious. Awesome. And a great deal, all told. Totally worth dipping into my camera fund.

Weekend plans:
If smed comes down (over, by up?) is in the air. Poor girl's life puzzle has change it's picture, and must be rebuilt. Fox and I are sending good vibes your way adn trying to find the piece off with which that racoon ran. :(

We're also sending "we're gonna school you when we bowl" vibes, just to inure you to the whole traumatic experience.

Serouisly, we'll be here if you need us.

HHGTTG:

I think that the level of enjoyment plotted against familiarity with the book series are inversely related. As a book adaptation, it's a horrific failure. As just a weird, quirky British humor movie, it's pretty funny. I did like it, but I noted all the glaring holes where the best jokes were removed and patched with twists Classic Hollywod Paradign tripe. Regardless, I did like it even if the atcing was spotty at best... Well, Arthur was perfect and Zaphod's acting was as I pictured it - even if the character was raped by a yeti in the script.

I think the problem with Ford is that he was dopey. In the book he's far from dopey. The character is supposed to know what's going on, how to survive as a hitchhiker and just happen to have a pile of quirks. So, yes, he was a little off. I think it would have worked better were he British, to play on the audience's stereotypes. We generally view British people as more competent than Americans.

Wow. If I had that stuff on my bed, I would NEVER get out of it. EVER.

Change it has and change it will.
Thanks for the thoughts and the support. I really do appreciate it.
I'm still making it. So much to do and so much to think about... not going to leave much time for LJ. You know how to get me. And I know how to get you.
