Christmas fireplace

Our (not quite finished) newly redecorated room looks fantastic with Christmas decorations on it. We’re going to have to keep it that way all year.

I’ve always wanted to be a powerpuff girl and now I am 😀

Friday is snow day is happy day

This morning on my way to work I’m inexplicably happy despite a day of work ahead of me. The fact that it is snowing (though only a paltry amount) could be a factor as that cheers me no end. Also I trimmed my beard last night which always makes me feel ten years younger. But I think it’s mainly because Jo was singing Friday I’m In Love earlier and it’s earwormed me and I’ve been singing it to myself all the way to work. Happy Friday everyone :-).

Miyazaki’s Beautiful Antiwar Dreams

This is a really nice article about anti-war themes in Studio Ghibli films:

No film has ever made me cry so much as Grave of the Fireflies. From about 5 minutes into it until about an hour after it I was just bawling my eyes out. Even just reading that article has made my eyes well up again.

I really want to watch all the Ghibli films again now but maybe not Grave of the Fireflies, that would be too much…
