spindly fingers and button eyes!

So, Coraline was fucking ace. It was also a lot scarier than I expected, even though it wasn't that dark (though apparently they've had kids run crying from the theatre at points, or so one of the ushers passed along). Then Dan had to go and ramble on about the book, on how and why the book was more terrifying (like, really?) than the movie. Apparently it's something I need to read (or at least add to the ever-expanding list).

It's kinda fun going to movies with no idea of the premise, only that it's going to be fucking swell, and nothing else.

Seriously, though--button eyes? No kids having watched that movie will ever be able to look at a button the same way. This could mean terrible things for the button industry.

Although, weird/dark/highly imaginative movies are always a worrisome experience for me, for as much as I love them, when I watch them right before I crash (or think about them so much that they're on the mind when I do), I have the weirdest fucking dreams. I wouldn't call them nightmares, per say; I don't thrash around or wake up in cold sweat, or anything. In fact, I just tend to tell most people I don't remember my dreams, because otherwise I would have to try and explain them, which I don't think I can do. Or even want to. They're not creepy in the creepy way (see? no sense!), or heart-stopping in any way (especially in the retelling), but they certainly aren't just--well, what I'd consider just a normal dream. I tried the 'write it down as soon as you wake up' thing, and I always end up staring at the paper thinking, how the hell do I put that into words? I could draw it, maybe, but I usually just write down several isolated adjectives, then resume the comatose state.

Maybe my mind sees shit in too much detail and gets carried away, or something. Whatever it is, I usually wake up with a headache afterwards and feeling though as I've hardly slept at all. Which sucks, because I have to work tomorrow :(

No, I haven't. I haven't had the time, but I can finish it today, and maybe you can come over after work and I can give it to you, so you can get it back to her asap. Or, you can just come and get it and I can just wait to read it when it comes out. :)

YAY! And then we can bake a cake in celebration! (and shutting up now XDDD)

A cake? Is there something I'm missing here...or is that a not-so-subtle way of saying that me finally finishing something is cause for celebration?

And I like PIE, woman. Cake with ice cream only. And good frosting.
