corpsebride2.jpgYou don’t have to drag me kicking and screaming from animation, I’ll run with glee. It’s a tedious and painstaking task. Infact I got out before we truly got there.

I’m still skipping out of the world of moving parts and swallowing print media whole. And yet it is movies like The Corpse Bride that leave me with that little twinge of, ‘oh to be a part of something like that’ (same goes for Lord of the Rings).

I saw it last night, The Corpse Bride and loved it! Tim Burton is hideously clever and movie itself is funny, brilliantly directed, animated and shot. It was simply nice to watch an adult cartoon for once without having to contend with your average romantic comedy typicals. Very refreshing. A delightful (in the truest sense of the word) way to spend a bit over an hour. I had a grin smashed to my face the whole time.

If you’re interested at all in world missions (particularly those in Asia) there’s a free book you can go and sign up for. I did a while back, and it came today.

Now I’m pretty sure the guy fairly strongly pushes his particular mission organisation seeing as he’s the founder and all, and I can’t say I’ve read it yet, but there you go, you can only try.

growing up

It’s just under two weeks that I’ll be moving out and I’ve begun to think half vaguely about packing. Why so early? Lets just say that at the moment my room is an utter mess and all of next weekend is consumed with a youth camp, then there’s the whole starting job, starting uni thing.

I have moved more times than I can count so it’s not a new experience. My current house is probably the longest I’ve ever been in one place (4-5 years) and I’m getting itchy feet. I quite like my room, I like my free internet, I like easy access to any book I can think of, I like my family – but it’s time for out.

Where work stands at the moment is that they’ll be ready for me in a few weeks. I’m hoping sooner rather than later or the money situation is going to get awkward. I also need to investigate all those other dollars things – Centrelink and the like.

It’s all good fun. Now I just need to go and find some boxes.
