I am the stupidest person in the world! Last weekend I coulda seen the Nausicaa film on the big screen (with subtitles!) for this Studio Ghibli festival that’s been going on in town. It woulda been a near-religious experience. Instead I did I dunno what, probably played Mario Kart 7 or something. (I did get to see Spirited Away and Totoro on the big screen tho, albeit dubbed.) Had to console myself by re-reading the manga.

Hey Jynx, you know about this? Something tells me you’d like it.

    Thanks! Maybe it’s cause I’ve been slightly editing the poem over the last couple days. Ha-ha!
