8110 - Birthday Prezzie, Batgirls and stuff

Thank you, dear shoo! My birthday present got here early, but I was good and didn't unwrap the gift paper unless she said I could.

And she did. I got the 2-disc Special Edition of King Kong (1933)! Yay!

Much love to all the family Shoo in Shoo-ville! Newt also likes the box quite a lot, too. He's currently sitting inside, gnawing on a cardboard flap.

Took a lovely late night swim in the pool at about 2am. The water was warmer than the air, which is always nice. I had a brief moment of iguana-fear, which quickly passed after I gave a quick sweep of the area. Very soothing to float on my back, staring at the moon and just thinking and feeling my toes and fingertips wrinkle up a little. Water is still the closest thing to hitting a reduced gravity environment for me... quite peaceful and I could feel a lot of physical tension flow away from my back, legs and shoulders. I was shivering a bit, despite the warm water, and I don't know what that was...maybe the body unkinking? I may make a habit of nighttime soaks more often.

Hey, look at all the batgirls!

A gazillion of 'em!

Some new designs, some just different styles on the old stuff... pretty nifty lj meme. Some amazingly amateurish, others frighteningly professional.

Take me off the shelf and put me in a plastic bag, because I'm sold!

VS and KTM both submitted resignations this week.. that's pretty much the entire community relations department. They'll both be gone before my birthday. I hate to sound greedy, but I really hope this won't affect my making a long weekend out of Feb 2-5 next month. I wonder how long RR has left before he high-tails it, too?

Moment of Lyric:

My, my the clock in the sky is pounding away
There's so much to say
A face, a voice, an overdub has no choice
And it cannot rejoice

Wanting to be, to hear and to see
Crying to the sky

But the porpoise is laughing good-bye, good-bye
good-bye, good-bye, good-bye

Clicks, clacks
Riding the backs of giraffes for laughs is alright for a while
The ego sings of castles and kings and things
That go with a life of style

Wanting to feel, to know what is real
Living is a lie

But the porpoise is waiting good-bye, good-bye
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye
