Okay – I’m a PACNW whining git. But it’s hot today. Everyone’s talking about how “lovely it is”, but it’s freakin’ 88 degrees when I’m far more used to 50 and 60. Shoot – it was warmer here in Seattle than Orlando, Florida for crissakes. And Columbia, MO only peaked out at 77 according to the (probably lying) weather widget.
We had a Disney screening of Prince Caspian this morning that was fun – I think they did a really good job with it, and frankly exceeded what they’d previously done with The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. It was definitely darker, and had more violence than the original (not something I’m historically used to under the Disney brand), but I think it really added to the movie.
This evening was Chris Parish’s birthday – so we spent the vast majority of the heat of the day down in Belltown. They’ve plans to go a lot longer into the night, but I was wiped out today and wimped out on the extended pub crawl. I’d never been in Shorty’s before … that was pretty cool. Blew a couple of dollars with Karen playing pinball and had a great time.
