Weekend Report

gneech_fursona_2011As weekends go, it was reasonably successful. Saturday was spent taking care of errands and/or shopping that has built up, particularly in refreshing the wardrobe for spring and making sure bills are paid. The main thing that could be pointed to as "productive" is the pic of this ridiculous mug you see here, done by request for the Confuzzled conbook.

Aside from a small amount of book work done, the other main things that happened over the weekend are that I've gotten halfway through The Eyre Affair, which is a highly peculiar book, and laurie_robey, sirfox, and I all went out to Ashburn to see Rango, which is a great little flick full of shout-outs to everything from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to Raising Arizona to Chinatown to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. I may have to see it again before I can talk about it coherently, as the movie is packed full of stuff. But I will say that what really sealed the movie in my personal "Great!" list was an epic moment involving bats and banjos which must be seen to be believed, but about which I can say no more without spoilers.

So now here we are looking down the barrel of a new week, with the transition to Daylight Savings Crime piled on top, as if that weren't enough. DST is joining forces with a small handful of internet troublemakers to try to make me bitey, but I am facing that as a challenge and determined not to let any of it bother me. Instead, I am channeling Puss In Boots and the Old Spice Guy alternatively as needed to remind myself to stay frosty and have fun with my life. So far it's working admirably, and I intend to keep it that way.

Hoping you're having a day with sufficient awesome, I am
