Miyazaki

Saw Howl's Moving Castle tonight. Wow, I was transported to quite a world with beautiful landscapes, wizards, witches and lots of other improbabilities. Wondrous sight to behold! Everyone says it's not Miyazaki's best work, but it's pretty awesome nonetheless. How does he do it? I don't understand all of what's going on, but am still strangely and intensely moved. Love, kindness and courage get the job done. You should probably go see this one, or else you're going to miss out on a bit of greatness.

Anyway, I'll be heading off to Seattle and then Vancouver tomorrow and this coming week. 70 degree weather and the beautiful outdoors, oh yeah.

I saw that movie also with Anne Hofer on a whim. Alexa told us to see it and we knew next to nothing about it. And yes we freaking loved it!!! I also enjoy Princess Mononoke, so it wasnt my first Miyazaki, but I agree with all you said.

Angelyn, hello! How are you? And where are you? In Dallas or OK? It's good to hear from you.
Brittany, how's it going in Atx? I'm jel that you are there. Yeah, I'm glad you enjoyed the film, even though it was weird. How's summer RUF?
Erin, you are too much.

p.s. those are my real cousins, 8 and 10 respectively. i don't really know if these comments are that age appropriate .. ahem.. i got a whirlwind of "um mum mums" in response to eh's puzzlement and as for you kk, these girls have only been in the us for a few years and i feel that them reading your literature maybe hindered their journey of mastering the english language.. haha not really, but half true let's say. And go figure, it's raining

mcoker said...

haha that's funny. I used to have a friend that, any time you'd say something smartass to her, she'd tell you to "eat a dick".
This cake seems appropriate.
