I think normally I'd relate to you some manner of anecdote about something interesting I did in the past week, but it's been a pretty mellow time. Which is sort of ironic, in that me and the D actually went over to peoples' houses and did things, which is weird for borderline hermits like us, so arguably I'd have more to talk about. But that's sorta not the case. For the record: I'm still a big fan of guacamole, and my opinion on fake cheese remains the same.
Oh, and we saw a movie called An Insignificant Harvey. It's a local movie set [or at least shot] in Collingwood about a dwarfish gentleman who finds a Husky and befriends a stripper who does very little stripping, and is mostly cold because it's winter.
That's sorta the whole movie. I wanted to like it because I like supporting Canadiana, and the dog is a very pretty dog, but... Yeah. I dunno. Too clunky. And there's a point when you go beyond a healthy dose of "leaving it up to the audience" as far as the point you're trying to make, where it just seems like you don't have one and are just relying on me to fill in the blanks for you. And that's how I felt about this movie.
So my final rating: Watch The Station Agent with a dog in the room, and you've got yourself a better version of pretty much the same movie.
And yeah. now TOYS!

DAY 9 and 10:
|"Subject apprehended during late-night fish-axing."|
DAY 11, 12, and 13
It may seem like I'm lazy, rolling all these into one picture. And it should, because I am.
|"Why can't I get any reception? Damn you, Mobilicity."|
So day 11 and 12 are another pair of walls, and together with the previous pair we have the completed Northern Outpost for the LCPD. They're not doing much crime solving when they don't have a roof or a rear wall, but it's been a tough year fiscally, and the mayor had to cut back on funding. Oh, yeah, and there's another officer on a comically oversized walkie-talkie. We have to assume Mr. Green is a criminal, to maintain the ratio of good guys to bad dudes.
|"Now let's see what's living in my spit."|
And there you have it. There's only a few more days left in the calendar, which makes me sad, but we're also that much closer to building the ridiculously old-lady-like Winter Village. I've gotten permission to bogart the entire couch. It's gonna be boss, y'all.
