A meme from coastal_spirit, which she calls...

A pointless meme.

1. What are you wearing right now?

Thermal pants, sweatpants, shirt, sweatshirt, and socks. Yeah, it's cold here.

2. Look to your right. What do you see?

A pile of my stuff, some of it on top of my scanner.

3. Who was the last person to text you?

No one texts me. I don't do that.

4. What were you doing ten minutes ago?

Playing Final Fantasy XII.

5. If there is something you should have been doing instead of that, what is it?

There wasn't. It was my scheduled play time. (Yes, I schedule play time. Want to make something of it?)

6. Look straight ahead of you. What do you see?

My computer, with four different windows open.

7. What are you going to do when you finish this meme?

Finish a few chores and go to bed.

8. What are you going to do tomorrow?

*groan* Go to work. I had last week off. I am going to hate tomorrow.

9. What is the last thing you listened to?

Um... does the fourth disk of my audio book count?

10. Who do you think will fill out this meme?

I have no idea. But it'll be fun to read them, whoever does it.

I'm uploading AL, so I have time to do this while I wait for the files to disappear from the queues...

Watched three movies I really enjoyed, this week. Kung Fu Panda was the first. I think I mentioned it before. I liked it so much, I did all the pages for AL. Then Wall E - very cute! Adorable little guy. And last, Journey to the Center of the Earth - fun! And with Brendan Fraser, for whom I would watch almost anything. Now I am excited about next weekend, because Prince Caspian and The Dark Knight both come out on Tuesday!

Dyed my hair again, a darker color this time. It's a kind of caramel, not quite a brown, but darker than my usual.


I keep hearing from people with reliable taste that 'Kung Fu Panda' is really good! Now, I guess I'm gonna have to see it! I absolutely adored 'Wall-E'. I'm amazed to say this, but I think it had one of the most effective and sweetest romances I've ever seen in film! ^_^ Several scenes in it struck me as hugely Miyazaki inspired (like that beautiful space dance between Wall-E and Eve). I wonder if Miyazaki saw it and liked it... :)

Have you seen 'The Dark Knight' yet? I have friends that were turned off by all the extreme hype surrounding it, but it really is wonderful.
I actually liked Kung Fu Panda even more than Wall E, although both had their good and not-so-good points. Both had a lot more of the former.

I saw The Dark Knight in the theater. OMG, it is by FAR my favorite Batman movie thus far. There were some parts of it that just blew my socks off.
I saw Kung-Fu Panda & Wall-E; they were both absolutely wonderful! ^_^ I've been trying to get the DVDs for some time.
