It's book club tonight. If you've read Slaughterhouse-Five and are nearby, there will be a bunch of us discussing it at my house.

I bought Trillian Pro finally. It's nice. Also I didn't know there was some kind of soft limit on how many contacts you can reliably get updates about.

Friday: Party @ Farringtonia rocked. Wish I hadn't been so damn sore. I unsuccessfully mediated a fight about Scientology. Body shut down long before mind.
Saturday: Congratulations are in order for the newlyweds koira and falkonne. The wedding was lovely despite the wondeful cicada background noise. It was fun to watch bronzemountain flirt with the bartender. Later on msteleute and I inflicted The Last Unicorn on an unsuspecting viewership. I'm still singing the song (I'm aliiiiiive!). And still verklempt.
Sunday: Feast!!! I <3 judithiscariot for making Thanksgrabbing so awesome. Also her team. And I didn't care what the potatoes looked like I had many heaping spoonfuls. For some reason eating and being hot and beers made me so tired I came home and crashed on the couch for hours. Oops.

So even with this inadequate description god damn I had a good weekend due to the hard work and caring of a bunch of people for their friends which somehow include me and I'm really grateful. Also may be feeling a little oversentimental right now left over from the movie. And there's still book club. You know book club? Where you are going to be later? So now I'm off to procure snacks and clean things and get parking passes and work out and etc etc etc.

Oh and Jack would like everyone to know that Curad band-aids are inferior, so don't buy them.

Actual Band-Aid brand really is the way to go. I have Target brand and they're vastly inferior. Fortunately they're also almost gone and I can get new ones!

This weekend DID rock. Thanks for helping me navigate to new places!

It was no problem. I am usually good at being a navigatrix.

Slaughterhouse-Five is such an awesome book, I really wish I didn't have to make myself go to the gym this evening...

Is 8pm a good post-gym time? That's when we usually meet! I should have posted the link... you'd be welcome to join us. I have a LJ community for the book club: peril_book_club.

Hmm, I'll have to join the community and see what I can work out. Thanks! :)

Last Unicorn is one of the BEST movies EVER! Did you hear they are making a live version (with computer graphics of course!) and using a lot of the original cast?! Set to arrive Christmas 2005....

And Curad does suck - Shop Rite makes better bandages! (I'm biased - they have bears on them!!LOL)

I had nooooo idea about the live version. :o I will have to look it up!

I actually prefer the 3M brand that they call "active", or "sports", something like that. they stick pretty nicely, don't leave so much of that sticky filth that band-aids leave around the edges of the bandage, and if you're lucky to find a box (I buy 2-3 when I find them) come in lovely colors instead of that awful freakish "flesh" tone that bandage companies refuse to let go of.

That's what we use, in the really painfully bright colors. Just checked the box, they're "3M Active Brights."

Re: ...
Do they make the flexible fabric ones? Probably not but those are my favorite.

Re: ...
Those are a sort of flexible fabric/plastic crossbreed. It's hard to describe, but they're pretty keen.

The Last Unicorn is my favorite movie in the whole world, as well as my favorite book which is even more awesome than the movie except no America soundtrack, but I always think of the songs in my head when I'm reading the book anyways.

I agree! The book was better than the movie, though not by much. Uhh. So I've heard. Like. From my sister. And stuff.
May. 25th, 2004 12:59 pm (UTC)
hee hee! I totally put the book on my wish list.

I've read it@!

You know.

When I was six.

... teen.

I wouldn't describe it as just "inferior" - I'm all in favor of saving a few cents for slightly sub-standard performance. People are entitled to their own valuations of money vs. whatever ... that's how business is done, but curad bandages simply do not adhere to flesh. If someone is thinking about buying a box of curad bandages, I have better advice, take $3 out of your pocket and throw it in the trash. Then bind your wound with a piece of notebook paper. It will stay in place about as well. The neosporin has more benefit as an adhesive then the bandage did.
