Serenity

I was very lucky to get to see a pre-showing of this wonderful movie. I could do a review, but two folks I sat with have already done better jobs than I ever could.
First, is gclectic's review. And second is UnSpace. Both are excellent writers and don't give any spoilers.

Go see the movie. Even if you never watched Firefly, go see it. If you like SF even a tiny bit, go see it. It is a wonderful movie about some very interesting characters that you will fall in love with. So do, go see it.

We've moved!

I have been remiss in writing in this blog. Chalk it up to a very hectic move.

The actual move happened the 29th and 30th. Packers came and packed me up, then movers came and moved me. All in all a very stressful situation. Turns out the packers did a horrible job and every box is not only a mystery, but an “Ok, is anything broken?”-hold your breath situation. I've already had words with the company, so I'll leave it at that.

The cats seem to have adjusted fairly well. Going from 3 bedrooms to 6 is quite a jump. Though Domino was ill before the move, I'm keeping a special eye on her.

I also stopped at Knit One, the new store in Pittsburgh, last week and bought yarn for a new project. A yummy, soft, bulky wool/microfiber called Teseo from Dive yarns. It's going to be a sweater for me when it grows up. Once I find the camera cord I'll put up pictures.

Beads are on hold mostly because I need to figure out the space they are going into, set up the bookshelves that hold them, and secure them to the wall. This house has w-w carpeting and that is affecting all the bookcases and such. Whee!

But I love my room, it's all purple! Wisteria is the official paint color, but it's purple. :-) And I love having room to move around in, even if there are well over 150 boxes in the house that need unpacked. (*GRONK*)
