Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Although work has kept me rather busy the last few days, in the evenings recently we've had the opportunity to play a couple of movies off DVDs.

First was the Pixar/Disney movie Brave, which was a lesser work for Pixar, but not bad for Disney. I will say that it seems to suggest that Scottish men never grow up, and that Scottish women have to be the adults, even when they don't want to be. Or did I get that wrong?

Second, I picked up the Bluray of Iron Sky, the latest movie from that Finnish team that did Star Wreck: In the Pirkinng (sp?). I liked that one, fun, though not deep and not perfect at all; Iron Sky deals with Nazis that escaped the aftermath of WWII by hiding on the dark side of the Moon, and so they rise again to invade the Earth. Very black comedy. I did LOL.

Tonight's the cookie exchange! Staff at most of the nursing homes have been plaguing me for weeks about when they can expect cookie packages!!!

I was disappointed in the book Sex in Space that I bought at WorldCon. I don't know, it just didn't seem to be much more than a compilation of rumors, and then some dream scenarios to pad out the book. I'm not sure what I'd expected, but whatever it was, this wasn't it.
