On Ponies

 Hers Truly has a rule: all ponies must have haircuts. This is very important. At first, she took out her scissors and tried to give her ponies haircut, but that did not work well. So, she wen to plan B and asked daddy to do it. So, I patient gave an entire herd of pretty ponies haircuts. Not one hippy-pony survived, and each was given a tasteful haircut.

Fortunately, we get all our long-haired ponies from the thrift store. We get a herd for a few dollars. Did you know that some ponies have magnets on their feet? Yes, that's how we get ponies on our fridge. Who's the genius who thought of that?

Jenny and Hers Truly went up Connecticut way this weekend. Jenny succeeded in forgetting both her travel chargers for the DVD player, which goes straight into the DOH category.

Black Prophecy finally got patched and I could play again. Yay, I now have a free space shooter. This is the one part of Star Wars Galaxies which I kept missing, so now I have my joystick fix.

The film last night was Kingdom of Heaven. Very allegorical. If you are a costumer, this is a wonderful film. I adore it simply because it did not try to put the past into sepia tone, and limited it's tendency to put everything into all brown. It was still too visually dull, because we humans love color and use it whenever possible, but certainly beat the snot out of other recent pseudo-history films in that regard. I immensely enjoyed the army scenes. In many other ways, I called bullshit on the film. Still, enjoyable for what it was. It's a good film to write metaphor papers. 

No real agenda this weekend.
