Still trucking

The initial shock of yesterday's news has worn off, and now I think we're feeling pretty optimistic about everything. We're also very sleepy, for unrelated reasons (like, we haven't been getting enough sleep for the last week and we stayed up late last night), which can sometimes lead to, "Is it an unreasonable amount of fatigue? Is there something wrong!? Oh no!!" But it really is not an unreasonable amount of fatigue.

See, since we had so much time last night, we figured it would be a good time to watch Zootopia. I might have actually liked it if I weren't currently biased against Disney movies, except for the enormous plot hole which I probably shouldn't go into right now because I don't want to put it behind an LJ cut. There's also the fact that Hopps and Wilde are basically animal versions of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider, which isn't necessarily a problem, but does emphasize the idea that Disney is not super original these days. It was kind of fun--whenever a new scene started, we were able to quote the same scene from Tangled. That miiiiiight be an exaggeration, because we only did it once, but I think that's only because that was where it had been going on long enough that it started to come more automatically. Anyway, it did have some cute jokes and interesting story points, so I have to give it some credit.

Nevertheless, our bias had us annoyed at the end (that and the oddly slow credits), so we wanted to watch some anime even though it was already past our bedtime. And then I wanted to see if "How It Should Have Ended" had made a Zootopia video yet. It hadn't, but of course we inevitably stumbled across several of their videos that we hadn't seen yet, so we had to watch those, and that's why we were up too late. But oh man, the Age of Ultron one was so true. (Here, check it out!)

And now today we have a bunch of stuff to do and we're sort of on top of it and sort of stalling. I think we're mostly just down to writing our talks for the Primary Program, which of course is the least appealing activity and why we saved it for last. But if we stop slacking, we can do more fun stuff later, so I guess we should get to work.

Today I'm thankful for How It Should Have Ended (by the way, if you haven't seen the Frozen one, I would definitely recommend it), ice cream being on sale, finally putting that contract in the mail that we kept forgetting about, chocolate milk, and the idea of being done writing talks fairly soon.
