this makes it all okay.
In other news, I'm reading Steven King's Dark Tower books. I think I read one or two of them some years back but now I'm trying to do it all at once, in order, which might get difficult because I currently only have books 1- 3. However I bet I can find the rest but that is not what I wanted to talk about; what I wanted to talk about is the scene in Book 3 where the intrepid trio of adventurers are attacked by a giant bear - Bearzilla, it is called. This bear bears (oooh! ow!) more than a passing resemblance to the great boars in Princess Mononoke, right down to its title, which is Forest Guardian and its disease, which is nasty white wormy parasite thingies in its nose. I find this interesting and I am contemplating an Ask Metafilter question about it, because I want to know if the giant animal with crazy making worms who guards the forest is actually an old Japanese mythological theme or did King steal it from Miyazaki or vice versa? I am curious, yo, and googling has gotten me nowhere.
And there is no other other news, except that I am eagerly anticipating going home, making a delicious casserole, reading more Steven King and going to bed early, oh yes please goddess.
