Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Yesterday was busy in a lot of ways.

We spent some time at the Claremont Farmers' Market, and came home with some nice, very tasty, stuff.

We got some old Super8 films that had been transferred to DVDs; these hadn't been viewed, probably for thirty years or more. There was a lot of good stuff on them, silent film or not. We viewed them after picking them up, and it was delightful.

We also pulled out some DVDs we'd made from VHS tapes we'd done, including a kilt party (Robert Burns' birthday party), and the advertisements for Norwegies (Empryss) Cattery, the name of the breeding company forestcats used to use for the raising and showing of Norwegian Forest Cats. More interesting stuff, especially as a number of LJers are in the various films.

We followed that by driving down to the Anaheim Pond to watch the blue team of the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus: The Greatest Show on Earth! Pretty good show, but Cirque d'Soleil seems much more astonishing/breathtaking/fascinating to me.

A delicious dinner back home was followed by blowing through a disc from season 2.5 of Battlestar Galactica, advancing the show rather well. It still is spellbinding, to me.
