I had a massive headache this morning. So I put on my second favorite Hayao Miyazaki film, Howl’s Moving Castle. I found out that I don’t own Spirited Away!

I have a copy of Kiki’s Delivery Service, of course. And The Cat Returns, that I’ve had for ages. But I don’t have Spirited Away or My Neighbor Totoro. I’ll have to pick them up at some point, along with Castle in the Sky, Princess Mononoke, Ponyo, and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. I’ll add them to my collection of DVDs and Blu-rays.

I also watched Mary and the Witch’s Flower today, which is made by a similar animation house to Studio Ghibli. It was okay. A little slow to start, but otherwise enjoyable.

Fen’s girlfriend Kimmy came over tonight. We ordered pizza and watched some awful movies. Right now, it’s Birdemic: Shock and Terror. It’s patently awful. I mean. Just terrible. The production was made for $10,000 in 2009. Its god awful and I might have to inflict it on others to riff on it. J and Bill6 seem like they would dig this movie. Or at least bashing on it.

In crafty news, I finished Little Bee’s blanket today! So now I have both Baby Bubble and Little Bee’s blankets done for next weekend.

Image is of a large single granny square crocheted blanket with a trio of interlocking rings as the center.

I think I started this on the twentieth, so it took me about ten days. Not bad at all for a baby blanket. It also means I can cross one blanket off of my crochet to finish list!

  • Little Bee’s Blanket
  • Chelé’s Cloud Blanket
  • My velvet shawl
  • Alliebear’s Hat
  • Grandma Gator’s lapghan
  • Jeweled Knot Blanket
  • And my Scrapghan

I like the interlocking ring blanket square so much, I’m doing a full granny square blanket out of them for Meg. I’m calling it the Jeweled Knot Blanket.

I’m hoping to get more laundry done tomorrow and to get it all put away as well. And get some reading done. I keep trying to read Terry Pratchett, but his may be prose I have to absorbs audibly. I’m not sure.

Mentally… I’m still in constant terror I’m going to lose my job. I love what I do and who I do it for. I’m just really struggling at work and I hate it. I know I can do the work. I just feel like I’m missing something that I could be doing better. I don’t know. I plug a lot of my self worth into what I do. So it is hard to let go and leave work at work. I just want to be better at my job.

Anyway. It’s late and my meds are kicking in. G’night everyone.

And take your meds, folks.
