Sasha the Space Corps Boy just left my house, where we had a great time watching the new Appleseed movie (I’m now annoyed by the reviews that sniffed at its mediocre plot; it’s little more than a high-powered action movie, but it does a great job at being one. The plot is somewhat complex, but this is not a deep movie, and it never pretends to be. That’s why there are mind-blowing action scenes literally every ten minutes.)

Let me back up. I had planned to have a mini-Redemption party at my house tonight, but nobody could make it. That was a good thing; I was feeling exhausted from this week anyway, and in fact came home early and slept for most of the afternoon. But Sasha called, saying that he’d be able to drop by, and I was thrilled that I’d be able to see him again.

So he stopped by, and we caught up, watched Appleseed, and swapped music. A very good thing, if just to spend some time with a good friend.

He also asked if I could drive him to Otakon, which I agreed to. Amusingly, after I attended Otakon alone last year (and suffered for it; cons are much less fun when you’re alone), this year I’ll be attending with six friends. Again, this is a very good thing.
