Absolutely Not Your Monkey

Having finally gotten my new digs in a kind of shape, I now have a new page up concerning said digs, with pictures, of course. I’m used to most of the sounds of the place, though the neighbors still irk me. Might just have to go over and have a little talk with them. If they’d only just close their kitchen balcony door things would be quite alright, I’m sure.

I watched Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany’s yesterday at the Sandcastle, and then Paris When It Sizzles today, huddled with Xiao Laohu the Cat under the blanket I’d brought downstairs to the sofa expressedly for the purpose of keeping warm in the single-digit temperatures we’ve been seeing here for the past week or two. No end in sight, either, according to the weather bureau. While I liked and mostly understood the movies, I kept falling asleep halfway through them. Perhaps it was the slower pacing, but then again it might have been being curled up on a sofa under a blanket with a cat purring as it sat on my stomach. Paris When it Sizzles was the most ludicrous of the films, with humor that translates well today. Hepburn saying “That’s, like, wonderful,” to Tony Curtis is too hilarious. I still have to watch Sabrina.

And you thought I was joking about watching the entire Audrey Hepburn Collection.

Spent an enjoyable evening on Sunday putting up the Christmas tree at Darrell and Judy’s place. They’re having dinner again this year on Christmas Day, something I’ve come to look forward to each year. The weather is certainly doing its part to keep up the holiday-ish feeling this time around. The colder it gets, the more I want to spend next year’s Chinese New Year holiday in some place warm.
