Saw Watchmen last night with Nick and Ben. It was pretty awesome, and though I only managed to read half the comic before we saw the movie, it matched up decently with what I'd read. According to Nick and Ben, I NEED to finish the comic (as I was planning to anyway) because the ending is completely different in the movie. Frankly, I'm glad, because I wasn't too fond of the movie ending. Also, just a warning, there's a LOOOOOT of full-frontal male nudity in this movie - they actually put a penis on Dr. Manhattan instead of giving him a featureless G.I.Joe lump for a crotch. It was kind of fascinating in a weird way.

I brought my mom's old sewing machine back with me. That thing is heavy - it's solid metal, over fifty pounds, and about forty years old. You can't make buttonholes with it, and the decorative stitching never worked, but it's the machine I learned to sew with and the one I'm most comfortable with. I'm excited about using it, even though I really have no idea what I want to make and no money to make it with. Oh well. At least the option is there, right?

Today's plan: take a walk with Nick and enjoy the beautiful weather, finish applications for summer RA and Medieval Conference positions, work on Nick's hat. Possibly re-read what Ultimate X-men comics I have.

A few people I know have watched that movie and now I'm getting curious. Maybe I'll try to find it.... highly doubt it is coming to any Japanese theaters.

I wish I could sew better... I've never used a machine. Hope you find something cool to sew! Maybe you could find some cheap sheets at salvation army or something.

Yes- finish the comic! I can't wait to see the movie *is so jealous you got to see it*

Heh, I'm using the penis to entice people to go see the movie. My logic goes, "It's got a giant, blue, glowing WANG! How is that NOT awesome?"

So... much... penis...

Also, Darcy, I would suggest trying to find the comic, because that's probably more readily available than the movie right now. the two are scarily close, and the novel is really awesome.
