Posterchild for Pandora

I thought I'd better write something before you all get bored of checking to see if I'd written, and finding - nothing new. The group shot was taken in Baxter State Park, Maine - my favourite place in the states (the only one I've been to twice). Distracting me from my usually exuberant blogging are two things. The first is school - I'm really trying hard to get everything tidied up and done so I can be a bit less stressed. This is of course hopeless, because whenever I get the stuff with deadlines tidied away - there is a tonne of more esoteric, deadlineless tasks awaiting me - but until then I'm hoping. The other problem, of course, is that facebook is sucking up my internet time in a bad/good way. Its kind of a tease - neat idea, but I'm just old enough that there are a lot of people I'd like track down that simply aren't into this kind of thing. The ones I know well enough to have emails for - well, I'm mostly in contact with them to some extent anyways. But still, I've caught up with a few folks that I'd otherwise lost contact with - making the whole thing worthwhile.

I guess, shockingly, my social life may also be interfering with my blogging. I was lucky enough to meet up with Margo to watch a movie, finally meeting the mysterious Ian. That was a blast. Pan's Labyrinth (spanish with English subtitles) was well done, but has left my nerves a bit raw. There are some pretty brutally violent and disturbing scenes in it, mixed with a sort of minor key beauty here and there. The weekend before I attended a party, played cards and visited my grandma's - taking up all three evenings in one weekend and the weekend before that I met up with another up north friend and 2 down souths ones for coffee. I do really need to get my camera out sometime - though it is so cold right now - I suspect the battery would refuse to cooperate... anywho...enough writing for now. Oh, and in unrelated news, my best friends kid turned 2... does that make me feel old or what

Pan's Labyrinth; Oh gosh, what a wonderful/scary/visually amazing movie. I saw it on DVD (Don't ask) on the weekend, and was torn between horror and amazement. What an amazing movie though.
