back in the hinterlands

Well, I'm back (christina, I left a message with Dr. Wolfgang that I arrived safely). It takes 5 1/2 hours to get from Burlington VT to Purchase NY if you wanted to know. And you pass a construction site with huge orange signs that say "Freshly Oiled Cracks". *is five*

I'm ridiculously glad I went in the end, because honestly I'm not going to be young and insane enough to do this sort of crap for much longer, and I had a riotously good time.

It all began with me arriving at meupatdoes's barn. When i pulled into the lot, a pack of wild dogs descended upon my car, and tried to climb inside when i opened the door. Upon actually entering the barn, i attempted to ask for christina, only to discover that 95% of the non-christina people only spoke spanish, and gave me directions that sounded like "donda esta porquay enchilada tequila" while mariachi music blared 'AY YI YI YI YI' in the background. But I did find her, and the horse she is riding/trying to sell, and the horse was very pretty.

and then i was an hour late to meet musesfool, which i felt really bad about, because that was an entire hour that could have been spent torturing some waiter in the city and discussing Sirius in leather! Victoria waited for me with incredible patience and we didn't even get kicked out, as she has mentioned. Although, judging by my math skills, we should have Franked it. Or possibly let Miss Nancy get it.

And then, the impetus for the entire trip, we saw the Inuyasha movie! which was something of a shock, because i was pretty convinced we were going to get there and the movie theater would tell me i was on crack and they had no idea what I was talking about.

And christina had no idea what she was getting into of course. it was sort of like when i told ellen that Kill Bill was about "women empowerment". When we showed up at the theater at 7:45 for the 10 pm movie, there was already a line halfway down the block. We got a large pizza from a nearby pizzaria and sat on the sidewalk to eat among the Inu freaks, who i have to admit were intelligent enough to bring books. I really wanted to make a phone post, but have no idea how to do it, and ellen wasn't around when i called, so i couldn't ask.

and we made it in! Let me reiterate here that if you knew christina at all, you would know that it's probably warping the space-time continuum that she sat on a sidewalk with me for two hours in order to see anything, much less an anime movie. Also, it's blatantly the most brilliant thing VIZ could ever do to show this movie for free in a bunch of places right before the DVD goes on sale. It can only be doing good things for their fanbase.

then finally, Collapse )

so now i just have to decide whether i'm going to ask for the movie for christmas, or buy it myself and ask for Season 1 for christmas. hmm.
