I’ve never been a huge fan of anime. I really prefer realistic drawings, it just doesn’t appeal to me. But today after school, while mom taught three lessons, Matt popped in a DVD of the anime movie “Castle in the Sky.” It was made in ‘86, I didn’t know anime had been around that long. I really didn’t hear about it until a few years ago.
I was anything but ecstatic at first, but eventually the four of us watching, Matt, Kendra, Than and I, started to get into it. All the words are in Japanese, and it’s subtitled in English. Now, this is actually really funny, because the majority of the subtitles come about 20-30 seconds after the line is uttered. So we’d have no idea what was going on. And by the time they appeared, we’d lost track of anything we DID know.
I surprised myself, though. When the main character dropped the object the movie revolved around, I gasped. Apparently I like it better than I thought!

I had a great time at Sonja and Krissy’s! First off we ate pizza and talked for a loong time about Gondoliers. They might be in it next year! That would be really wonderful…apparently their dad was almost in it one year. Then we finished up and began to watch a DVD of bad and good (mostly bad) dives from Son’s diving team. Very funny. We watched my video of The Mikado afterwards, since Sonja hadn’t been able to see the play. I really do love that show. So we ended up going to bed at something like 11:30 or 12:00, but it was worth it.
The next morning Krissy came to wake Sonja and I up, and we were cruel and made Krissy get us breakfast. But we repented and Sonja ended up making it; I promised to next time they came to my house.
Afterwards, we played the piano for a while, then went for a walk. It was warm enough for shorts, but there was sprinkling rain…it felt great. Tons of fun, we ended up going about 2 1/2 miles total.
I can’t wait to get together with them again…
(This whole post is ironic, seeing as those two are about the only ones who read it. :P Ah well, what will be will be.)
