influence

lost language & other elusive forms of fun

Woke up at 4. Cleaned some house in anticipation of filter change, plus, weekend. R. Daneel got to come out and roll around. Got to Darkside's perhaps an hour later than anticipated despite being almost ready to walk out the door -- one sentence turned into a small essay. He hasn't had a chance to read the Novel of Doom, yet -- school!

We started out with some Mythbusters, some more Mythbusters, and then some animated Star Wars. This was followed up by some more recent Final Fantasy. I got smacked with an emotion stick partway through that movie, and started attempting to deny the fact that I was crying. That did not work so well, and I had tissues thrust upon me. By this point I had lost the ability to communicate coherently in the English language, although some irrelevant things were still available, some incoherent things, and some non-English (mostly Japanese) things. I know more Japanese than he does, and I don't even know enough to find a bathroom. Eventually I was able to invite him (in English) to "invade my personal space", which he (correctly) took as an invitation to join me on the couch, whereupon I attached myself to his hand and was quite unwilling to give him up for the remainder of the evening. He, having the patience of a saint in some important areas, did not complain overmuch at me, although I will surely hear about it later.

We also wound up watching Armitage III. Enjoyable. I actually managed to catch some of the plot bits before they were revealed.

No real plotbabbling, unless you count the bits about the dudes in the parking lot on fire and the amount of damage they will cause.
