Ah, that's better....

It's after 8, and again, it's 29 outside.

It's somewhere in the low 20s in our apartment, though, and rapidly dropping.

Air conditioning can be a Good Thing.

We spent the afternoon from 2 to 5 shopping for air conditioners with thespian, and both came away with reasonable models. I banged up my leg during the installation, so linuxspice is out at Shoppers right now fetching gauze pads and bandage tape.

Oh, and we're definitely going to Gaylaxicon with thespian and danaeris in a few weeks. We'll make the hotel reservations when linuxspice gets back.

Now, for some first aid and a shower, and then a nice evening....

despite what the guy at Future Shop said, whoever had returned this A/C decided not to return it with all it's parts. The only part that concerns me is the overflow tap; everything else was basically for places where you can reach the outside of the building, or for a window that went up and down instead of back and forth like mine does. So it was a bit...'fun' installing the thing. I need to get a 1" thick bit of wood, tomorrow. On the other hand, Ulysses and Weasel are currently sleeping in front of it, and they seem MUCH better than before. Much less prone to disintegrating.

We need some wood, too. Right now there's cardboard covering the space above the unit.

Astonishingly, it's healed this morning! I mostly just skinned it raw and bleeding, and all the little cuts were shallow.

Yay for air conditioning!

Sorry I couldn't join you folk for the movie the other night.

Have you seen it yet? I wouldn't at all mind seeing it again....

Which one? I haven't seen either. I didn't have a compelling interest in Sin City, but I was intrigued by Steamboy.

Oh, I was talking about Howl's, but I wouldn't mind seeing either Sin City or Steamboy.

Ahh. :) thespian had mentioned the Sin City / Steamboy thing the other day. Did you end up not seeing them then? How was Howl's? It's obviously on my to-see list. ;)

We did go and see them, and I enjoyed them both. Sin City was a better movie than I expected, and just as visually interesting as advertised; Steamboy was a Laputa knockoff, but a good one.

Howl's Moving Castle is every bit as good as you'd expect a collaboration between Miyazaki and Diana Wynne Jones to be. It also reminded me of Laputa in that it's a very generous movie that throws a whole new layer of wonders at you just when you think it's going to start winding down. There are some neat easter eggs for readers of the Nausicaa manga, too.
