Aug 23 2005

I’ve had one of those weird days where I came home ready to finish catching up from the weekend, but didn’t get to any of it.

Instead, I took out the pork I’d bought to make sweet and sour pork, chopped up the green pepper and onion, put my knife through the pork…and discovered that this pork was still on the bone. Well, couldn’t very well dice this, so instead I just pan-fried it and the vegetables, and microwaved some rice, and sat down with a VHS tape that had just arrived.

The VHS tape in question was The Halloween Tree, an animation of the book by Ray Bradbury. Bradbury wrote the script and narrated it, the main character was played by Leonard Nimoy, the rest of the cast is well-acted, and the direction is solid. Unfortunately, it’s animated by Hanna-Barbera. Not poorly, but it shows. Eh, it’ll be a good addition to my yearly October Ritual.

And now, it’s late, and while I’d like to prattle on about my day, I’m getting tired. So a quick, odd link: COLOURlovers, a site about color. Or, colour. You can see the submitted colo(u)rs, rate them, and comment on them. Strangely hypnotic.
