Arr, it be inter-national talk ye like a pirate day once more, and coincidentally, we be taking shipment o' High Seas Cthulu this fine morn. A singular book it be, as happen it contain a tale most terrifying, the fine "Ice" as penned by the great scholar elanya - a finer authority on the doin's of us free sea-folk there never has been.
I can't wait to read it!
In other news, we've started to roll out the wedding plans. There's one of longpig's family left to contact, we think - other than that, if you haven't got an email from us, you aren't on the primary list, we're afraid. However, we have an extensive 'b' list, of friends and family we'll be able to invite once we have some firm replies.
We had a little drama early on, with one of Hazel's relatives 'assuming' that her daughter was also invited. Fortunately, once the rage subsided, Hazel came up with a suitable solution and put things right.
Home life is good at the moment - Hazel's a bit bored during the days, as everyone who's still here works during the day, but she'll be just as busy next week as she is bored now, registering for university and getting set up. Our evenings have been lovely - last night she cooked the rabbit we bought from the market at the weekend, with garlic and honey, and we ate it - it was delicious.
Then we watched some films with John and Gems - over to Film Cat.
"So, kittlings, long time no see! Have you been good? Have you been bad? Most importantly, have you been feeding your brains with tasty eye-candy? The cat has.
Blades of Glory is the most cringe-inducing film we've seen for a long time, and as such, is definitely worth the watching. You should prepare hands, blankets or something more substantial to hide behind when the pure, unrefined awkwardness begins oozing from the screen, but for those who prefer to enjoy entertainment of a more comfortable merit, the Cat mentions one of the best-conceived chase scenes in modern comedic cinema.
For a fantastic tale, it is often safe to depend upon the work of señor Guillermo del Toro, and the cat recently sampled the first of his authorial cinematic works. Cronos is a tale of forbidden technology, and the price to pay for its use. It's a disturbing watch, more so if you pay close attention to characters that may not spend so much time in the full view of the stage lights...
If a good mythos is your thing, be sure to sample the extremely well-made "Call of Cthulhu (2005)". It is a largely faithful retelling of H.P. Lovecraft's original tale of madness, obsession and eldrich beings from planes with non-Euclidean geometry. If you have yet to venture into Lovecraft's dark world, take care - you'll soon wish you never took that step. And yet, we feel compelled to recommend you watch this 45 minute film... yes, something dark compels us to spread the knowledge..."
I feel it's probably a good idea to cut the Cat short there.
