1:49p - trains
SO the train ride went as I expected. Cameron was really happy at first, wanting to run around and stuff, which was fine for him to explore the first five, ten, maybe fifteen minutes. BUt after that he just didn't want settle down. I think we spent most of our energy trying to get him just to sit and not get into other peoples' way.
The dining car has always been a refuge for us I guess; Andrew and I used to sit at a table across from us with Cam in his seat between us. I ended up dragging Cam there to see if being there would calm him down. I think we spent an entire hour just doodling on a coloring book.
I am having a hard time getting back in to the swing of things. I also feel I didn't spend nearly enough time with everyone, and I didn't get to see everyone that I wanted.
Surprisingly enough I think my mom would have actually been ok watching Cam and I could have joined Jackdaw man and platonicpimp and everyone else at the comic club.
I finally got to see Howl's Moving Castle(YAY!!) but it deviates from the book so wildly during the middle of the book/movie that I can't believe it!!! I think what has really got me is that the guy who directed the english dubbing just gave so much credit of everything to Miyazaki that I am sickened by it. Really, if you do/did enjoy the movie, try Diana Wynne Jones version(the original). I am grateful someone noticed her finally- and Miyazaki did do an exceptional job at it, but he really just tried to make it his own ggrrrgrgrgrggrr
Also avatars..... I am trying desperately to get one. I found a free site that has one I like, but I can't seem to find it on the desktop after I download it.... I am sure I'll figure it out soon.

current mood: busy
