After weeks of stalling, I finally began the frankly gargantuan task of getting my office in order again -- if I'm going to be sharing it with [livejournal.com profile] emsariel for the foreseeable future, it might help for the second desk to not be completely covered in books. [livejournal.com profile] jlh came over to keep me company for a while, as well as reassure me that yes, I was making a dent as time passed. There's nothing quite like organizing your yarn stash while your friend explains the intricacies of various fandom wanks you missed while you were away for the holidays.

My mom and sister drove down from Cape Cod for a day out on The Town, which gave me an excuse to do several very New York things that I almost never get around to. In particular, we went to see the production of South Pacific currently running at Lincoln Center. I'd be interested to hear what others make of it -- for me, it seems surprisingly progressive in its intentions but still cringy in the ways it's (inevitably) a product of its time.

January 9th

The spontaneous purchase of two double-decker steel-frame wardrobes for our bedroom kicked off a day of hardcore apartment reorganization, both of us properly putting away things that had sat in bags and boxes since we moved in two years ago. After an afternoon of this, we finally steeled ourselves to go watch Avatar in 3D, which somehow managed to at once be a little better and far worse than I'd expected. There's something uniquely frustrating about watching a film that could have been great, meanders through a problematic but gorgeously realized world for its first two-thirds and then plunges abruptly into explosive WTF-kery in the final stretch, from which it never emerges.

Side note: I caved a little while ago and signed up for a Tumblr, which I'm now using consistently enough for it to be worth mentioning? So you know. That is a thing.
