This week I have been mostly escaping.
On Thursday night I went to see Spirited Away
with Simon. It was fascinating and charming and pretty. More people should have gone. I hope it stays long enough for more people to see it. It is splendid.
On Friday Simon and I finished work early and went to see Die Another Day
which was great fun. It was cluttered with one-liners and Bond memorabilia to the detriment of any story being told, but anyway it was great fun.
Yesterday Jimbo, Jon, Ransome, Simon, Trudi and I resumed playing Dungeons and Dragons after the Christmas break with new characters on the crew of the skyship The Black Pearl
out of Sky Federation air mine Oceania Outpost. Sweet.
Today I should shift furniture, re-pot plants, rake leaves, file paperwork and shelve books. Maybe I can make a game of it...
