I was trying to find the name we made up for weekend-itis, only it's not really weekend-itis because your weekend isn't swollen, so we made us a better name for it but now I don't remember what it is. Shuumatsu-shou, or something like that. But anyway, while we were looking, we found something that really matches what we're feeling right now. It went like this: "Let us leave this place of fatigue and braindeadness and go play Kingdom Hearts."

Only today we feel less tired and braindead and more just detached from everything, including what we're theoretically working on. We were editing two things, and we were like, "Does that sound okay? Who cares, let's just move on." Hopefully it sounded okay enough... I don't think we were that bad. Usually if it was bad, we pulled ourselves together enough to come up with something better.

The point is, we have shuumatsu whatever it is really, really bad. We need a vacation. I can't type worth beans anymore. The typos...oh my goodness, the typos.

Fortunately! our work load is finally lightening. Unfortunately, we should probably not take tomorrow off. But we're really hoping for at least one day off next week!

In the meantime, we ended up making an order from the Disney Movie Club. They sent us an email that said, "Here's your featured title!" and we thought, "We don't want that one." So we went to the website to decline, and we were reminded that there was another featured title that we still hadn't accepted or declined yet. We decided that we did want it (Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast (speaking of typos, there was almost a B in that "tinker," and not at the end--right smack dab in the center)), and that meant we could get 60% off anything else we ordered. So, as per coastal_spirit's recommendations, we ordered Big Red and The Three Lives of Thomasina. And! because we don't have it yet and as twins we really should, we also ordered The Parent Trap (the Hayley Mills one, of course). It's totally numeralist to have one actress play both twins, but Walt Disney gets away with it because he was just trying out new film technology like he liked to do.

And now we really, really, really need to get away from the computer. Today I'm thankful for managing to finish our work, having more Disney movies to look forward to, strawberry Hi-Chew, having a slightly lighter workload to also look forward to, and it being time to leave the computer now.

I'm excited that you took my recommendations! I hope you like the movies, but if you don't, or there are things you don't like, that's okay, too. We all can't be the same. I have not thought about those movies in years (well, maybe I've thought about Thomasina now and again), so I'll be interested to hear what you think. Hayley Mills' Disney movies were favorites of mine, although, going down the list, I haven't seen them all. I somehow thought of Hayley as being around my age, but she's 7 years older than I am, and I think that became evident to me when I watched The Moon-Spinners. I must have been 10 or 11, and she was 17 or 18, and I was just at the right age to think that she was terribly cool, and old enough to appreciate and love the scenery and atmosphere on the island of Crete, and to think that Peter McEnery was rather dreamy. ;) Another Sunday-night Disney memory.

We're excited, too! Like I said, we love vintage Disney! There are very few movies that the company made when Walt Disney was a live that we dislike. Third Man on the Mountain was a little boring, but I think we'd even like that one if we watched a version with some of the Stunning Visuals edited to shorterness (or if we learned to appreciate the beauty of the Alps better). Since you asked, we'll make sure to review them as we watch them! And now we will add The Moon-Spinners to our list, because we do feel a special attachment to Greece.
