purple dragon

The Secret of Nimh & other ramblings...

Well I finally got around to watching it and wow...

I had totally forgotten why I liked it so much as a little kid. I remembered some of the weird spooky rose bush scenes, but over the years the whole thing had transformed into something kinda weird and not entirely nice. It still seems a little dark and a bit deep for something meant for little kids (especially considering it was made in 1982... man I feel old :), but I find that I still enjoy it. It's a wee bit overly sappy at times, but the rats are so very cool and the evil cat is named Dragon (and it's half as big as the farmers wife, sheesh).

As Friday's go, this one went.

Nothing too exciting to report beyond watching the movie just now. I worked a bit and did car stuff a bit and that's about it.

I'm tempted to go out tonight, but no one seems to be around and I'm still more or less car-less (the Corvette is drivable, but we need to get the state inspection sticker and insurance for it... that'll probably happen Mon/Tues....).... Eh, oh well I'll make it a movie night + Farscape... actually I have data processing stuff to do for brother G and I promised it would be done first thing in the morning so I might as well do that too (esp since I am getting paid for it... who knows, maybe this will help cover some of the $$ from the shopping orgies of late....).

Actually, speaking of shopping orgies....
