fat pony like thunder

hunting high and low

Ooof. I am tired. Today was the Ladyfest Scavenger Hunt, which was lots of fun, and my hearty thanks to barsine and amphoteric for coming along and being valiant participants and to fellow judge jane_the_23rd for her mad judging skillz (and abilities as a baby wrangler). But possibly because of the heavy weather, I've been feeling all hot and drained and cross, and wish I could just go to bed in a cool tub of water. Urgh. I don't think it's fair that we're getting heat without sun! I've felt slightly sickly for nearly a week now, which I think is mostly weather related. Muggy weather is not good for me.

It's time for bed

Good God.

Seriously, I heard ages ago that they were making a film of The Magic Roundabout, but I didn't think it'd be this bad. I loved that programme as a kid, and one of the things that always appealed about it was its weird but sweet pastoral quality, which certainly seems to have been thrown out here. Horrible computer animation? Dylan doing Matrix-style martial arts? No Florence? This is a travesty! And what's worse, it seems to miss the point of the original. Which would never have allowed Robbie Williams anywhere near it.
