¡Hola! If you´re wondering why I haven´t been blogging this week, it´s becuse I´m out on vacation with Marcee. I won´t be headed back home until Sunday, so blogging will be extremely light for the rest of the week. However, I do hope to get some writing in, even though I won´t have my army of photos and art assets to rely on.
On the upside, I have brought a number of movies with me to watch with Marcee. Let´s see...we have Puss in Boots, Animal Treasure Island, Gauche the Cellist, Castle of Cagliostro, Castle in the Sky, and Howl´s Moving Castle. The idea was to go through all of them during the week...but you know how these things go. I don´t get nearly enough face time with the beloved girlfriend, so walking and hiking and dining and smooching take precedence.
You might have noticed that posting comments now requires one of those trippy passwords, instead of waiting for my approval. This is the reason for that change. As such, I have been unable to keep track of all the comments since Saturday. I do hope everybody is staying on their best behavior. The Ghibli Blog has always been a home for thoughtful and intelligent discussions, and we all know how truly rare that can be. I want to thank each and every one of you for your kindness and thoughtfulness. This is as much your blog as mine, and you should take pride.
Okay, we´ve got to get Marcee fueled up. She´s been battling a sore neck all day, thanks to a mattress and pillow that might as well be stone. So I´ve got to get her some food and drink. We´ll be back later to watch some DVDs.
Oh, and a quick reminder for everybody - Saturday is International Pirate Day, so do your best to play along. I´m saving Animal Treasure Island for this special occasion, heh heh.
