For a long time now, I haven't been able to watch video on my iMac. I don't know why, but it comes through as a series of freeze frames instead of a smooth-flowing image. The sound is fine, but the video doesn't work. No YouTube for me. I wish I knew what to do about it, because it's very frustrating. Maybe it's just my computer, since it's about 6 years old. Shannon says we need to buy me a new computer when we've payed off our debt, but I have no idea when that will be. Maybe never if I can't get more work than this. Sigh.

Watched Whale Rider today, and it was much more of a fairy tale than I expected, with the under-appreciated main character being good at everything and accomplishing impossible feats. One might even say that the main character is a bit of a Mary Sue, though fairy tale hero is probably more accurate. I liked the movie but wasn't amazed. I might like it better on second watching, but I don't have the patience to sit down and watch it again now.

We produced a great many dirty dishes while making pasta for dinner, so I spent a while washing up afterward and it was all very domestic.

We've been watching Season 2 of "Carnivale" on DVD lately, which I like but find puzzling. It's chock full o' symbolism and mystery. Like Whale Rider, it has definite fairy tale elements, though this is a much darker fairy tale. Often, things happen and I can tell that they're momentous, but I don't know why. I should look for websites about it.
