Not necessarily in that order.
First off: Coraline in 3D was wondrous. Such artistry and craft. I loved every minute of it. The 3D effects were cool, but not jarring. Subtle, if you will. And I love children’s tales that are basically dark morality lessons. (Shockheaded Peter, anyone?) For children: Mind your parents or risk getting buttons sewn in your eyes. For parents: Pay attention to your children, or get trapped in a snow globe. It’s your choice, really.
Sunday was spent painting Gator’s friend’s new fourth-floor loft. Since I’m strange and love painting (I’ll gladly paint your place in exchange for beer and pizza), I was happy to do so. But this place presented a distinct challenge — with its 15 foot high ceilings and light paint over a dark burgundy. Many coats and many trips up and down a rickety ladder. But we did it!
Meanwhile, the view from their new place. Jealous much?
