Still in a food coma  
I hope all who celebrated had a good Thanksgiving. Mine was quiet and nice. I feel like I haven't felt warm in days -- it's cool here, by no means cold compared to some, but two nights ago I felt like I was camping in our bedroom, it was so frakking chilly. I theoretically have a furnace, but there's only one vent for the house, so it's not the most useful thing. Maybe we need a space heater. (Not that I'm buying one this week, because that is CRAZY TALK).

We watched all of Punkin Chunkin competition and, of course, The Kid built a lego catapult when we got home. I hope he uses his power for good when he's a teenager!

Volcano on AMC today. My favoritest LA disaster movie. ever. You can't really get the awesome without knowing all the landmarks they're destroying, but watching the fiberglass mammoths at the tar pits MELT fills me with evil glee, I admit. :)

I am 11000 words off of NaNo, with only a few days left. eek But the boys are going to the auto show later, leaving me in peace to write, so I should have a couple hours free and clear. SO CLOSE

I love old school disaster movies and that one is classic. There's is nothing quite like the melting mammoths in the tarpits. I also love Dante's Peak, which is just as preposterous.

But then again one of my favourite movies ever is "The Towering Inferno".

We need more big budget disaster trash:0

oh yes! Dante's Peak is also fun though with less landmark destruction. There are parts of 2012 that are fun wanton ridikulous destruction too -- my house drops into the ocean! SyFy takes stabs at 'natural' disasters, but they just don't have the budgets to do them properly like old school features.

I love Volcano. When it came out I decided I wanted to be a geologist. (Yeah, I was a silly kid). I even bought the novelization.

The best part is it came out right after Ellen came out and Anne was still pretending to be a non-batshit lesbian.
