so ender’s game was…okay
the pacing was horrific and what vague memories i have from the book don’t quite match up, but it wasn’t completely awful
(i enjoyed moises arias’ performance immensely actually)
(i mean i enjoyed almost all the kid actors but especially moises)
i also found out my super-cute combat boots that i got just a month ago have both cracked across the balls of the feet and snow gets packed in there and makes walking painful and also destroys the shoes even more. they were thirty bucks and that SUCKS (i have two voices going “THIRTY EFFING BUCKS” and “oh only thirty bucks” and it’s annoying). my mom’s advice was to take them back to the store but that requires renting a car again and digging up the receipt and i really really don’t have time for that. but with those boots out of commission i only have one pair of boots i can wear out in the snow and ice and they’re snowboots that pinch abominably and don’t go with like half my wardrobe. they’re mostly warm and have excellent traction, so that’s good.
exhausted and stressed and i have a christmas party to pull off tomorrow so i’m going to bed now and hopefully this nice tension built up in my neck and shoulders will frack off and not bother me tomorrow.
