Mad Red

Putting the "I" in "INFJ"

Most of the time, I do such a good job at being sociable that it can be hard to tell that I'm an introvert. But I am; and every once in a while, I just get worn out dealing with people. Like 'em, hate 'em, doesn't matter, they just exhaust me. This is intensified when forced to deal politely with people being stupid, crass, out to lunch, or just really really childish, all of which has happened in the past week, sometimes all at the same time.

The unreasonably nice weather this weekend helped a bit, but as of this morning, my "dealing with people" reserves are still very low. Fortunately, I have Wednesday off from work to prep for AC, but in the meantime, if I seem distant, harsh, or flightly, I beg your indulgence in advance. I'm not angry, depressed, or feeling down -- I simply have limited affability reserves, and right now they are depleted. I should be in much better form by AnthroCon if not sooner.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Whatever

laurie_robey and I finally got to see Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It was an okay movie, but after Lord of the Rings it seemed altogether flat, perfectly-done CGI furries or no. If the editing had been 15% tighter, it would have been a 150% better movie. I've never read the book, but I certainly hope it was better. I got the distinct impression that the centaur was an important character who mostly got edited out; the film sure could have used a lot more characters interacting, and a lot less panning and zooming around snowswept mountain peaks.

Tempo, people! Tempo!
