I had a great weekend in general, and a brilliant one for writing. I think the second and third parts of the book are going to go faster since they’re mostly planned out, but I’m halfway to my deadline and I’ve just about finished Part One of Molran. I think that’s about where I was for Blaran at the same point. But let’s see how we go. No real rush.
Sadly, today I am going to be busy and in fact most of this week I am going to be rushed off my feet with assorted preparations. Next week, though, is a week off. Woo!
Had gangs of fun piling wood on Saturday, but unwound with a sauna afterwards. Then on Sunday, I spent a pleasant hour and a half writing on my phone while playing taxi service for Wump’s dance rehearsal. After that, the BRKNs and Bella came around to share a little movie (and a huge pile of food) with us.
The movie, 1989’s Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death (or Hyvää ruokahalua! in Finnish), was … really something you should watch for yourself. I’m not going to review it so much here. I will, however, say that Bill Maher has never been funnier and I can’t believe he doesn’t bring this movie up more in conversation.
Not photoshopped. Or even screencapped all that well.
Also, it’s funny to see that the issue of male emasculation-fear and toxic feminism is as pressing and valid today as it was in 1989.
No, seriously. The issue has not actually gotten any closer to – or farther from – a resolution in the past twenty-seven years.
The movie did, however, star Cretak from Deep Space Nine. Worth watching just for that.
Straight after this movie, amusingly, Mrs. Hatboy and I started to watch season 2 of Agent Carter, which I think is working more solidly than the first season. The amusing part is, in this season she moves to the Los Angeles branch – and the first thing Jarvis warns her about when she arrives? “They eat avocados here.”
The universe is a silly place.
