04:35 pm: Howl's Moving Castle
This was a really good movie. Substanially faithful to the book, the anime is marvelous.

A young girl is continuing her father's hat business and when she tells a woman who turns out to be the Witch of the Wastelands that the shop is closed, she is cursed to be old. She can't face her mother and coworkers as an old woman, so she heads out toward the wastelands. She's led to Howl's Moving Castle, a wandering batch of junk, and finds magic, war, and eventually, her life.

Mishalak once told me I reminded him of Sophie's "never say die" spirit and I hope I actually embody that.

Highly recommended.

I think you do, too.

Honestly? Though we haven't met in the flesh, you're a model to me: there are things you say that I have used in my efforts to be less timid, scattered, and self-sabotaging.

Boy, I hope I live up to that, too!

Lucy, I've always admired your ability to be straightforward even when you know people will assume you're saying something else because of your political beliefs.
