fears lie

Ack you guys, pray, please

We have two cats at our house, here, which belong to one of my roommates. All of us were gone over Christmas, so we got a friend to cat/housesit, which seemed to work out well. Until I got home (first of us) and realized that I didn't see one of the cats at all, and there was extra food in the automatic dishes.

He got out. And we don't know where he is. Please pray that he finds his way home, and is safe meanwhile. He's big, has all his claws, and is a gorgeous sable gray with a white chest. Name of Pixel. He's also the world's biggest scaredy-cat. I'm sure he's terrified, wherever he is.

Quick review of Up in the Air

A great film. Not just George Clooney being awesome, although he deserves the recognition he's getting for this role, but the script, the direction, the insights into human loves and isolation versus connection... It's stunning. I may have to buy it at some point.

BUT.

Do not go see this film if you are unemployed. I am so serious. I managed to get through the film, and then there's a song in the credits that was written by an amateur and given to the director, and I came apart at the seams. I would have gotten up and run out of the room if I'd thought I could make it without tripping over people. (Well, and also I'll be damned if I run from a song in a movie.) And I don't mean quietly tearing up; I mean choking sobs (and swearing), blinding emotional pain of the type I can't let myself feel too often, because it would entirely incapacitate me.

Just wanted to make sure you all know what you're getting into if you decide you want to see it. :)
