      The poor quality video is available online but you should totally watch this in theatre. The 3D was beautiful; when Belle was on the mountain, i was tempted to run into the screen.
      And it was worth buying 2 tickets. I had the whole area to myself.

      Meh, I always worry about watching pirated shows. I either get viruses, phishing scams, or a warning and shut off of my internet for a couple days
      Glad you loved it though!

      Rave: My kids are so weird. We have 4 new-ish kittens (don't know if I wrote about them- they're 3 months old or so by now). Their names are "Baby Fluffy", "Baby not so Fluffy", "Two Face" and......... "Frank"
      They've been very sickly. It's common for our kittens to die off with respiratory infections by this new lot has that plus diarrhea. I've been showering with them to keep them clean, but ugh... those fluffy ones are a nightmare. I think I might shave them lol. They've been getting much better.

      We lost another puppy last night (the first didn't make it). I think momma squished him. We might lose one more because of the way they nurse. Because of the way she lays, in order to access the teats, one pup ends up between her back legs and one under her front 2 and face. If she switches position, they get trapped.
      Otherwise, she's being an excellent mom. She's even stopped panting so much (in part because I lowered the heat in my room).

      Rant: I'm very weird. When I'm cold in my sleep, I get into a tight fetal position. It traps all my body heat and I sweat like crazy. Night before last, I kept waking up thinking there was a spider on me but it was sweat rolling down my body. Then I try to stretch out, but the cold air freezes me, so back into the fetal position I go
      I tried sleeping in clothes last night but that wasn't happening. I can't even stand underwear when I sleep. so I added 2 more blankets to my bed. I didn't have the sweat/freeze episode until very early in the morning right before I woke. I guess they helped.

      Rave: My DIN started work (training) today. It's a 15 minute drive down the road I can definitely live with that commute until she gets a car.

      Rave: Season 4 of Orphan Black is finally on Prime. I've been binge watching it. Can't believe there's only 10 episodes though.

      Rant: I have the (forgive the butchering of this spelling) Roroni Kinchin theme song stuck in my head. It's been 10 years or more since I even watched it It's the only animae (gr sp!) I've ever liked.

      Yeah temperature changes are annoying. I have to keep a space heater in my room since my bedroom is the coldest room in the house. In the winter months the heater helps keep my room from getting down to 50f in the night, since if that happens I'll never be driven enough to get out from under the warm covers in the morning.

      I feel like I'm having constant episodes of waking up to find that i'm cutting off the circulation in one arm and I've got a limp arm. It used to only happen once in a fortnight but now I swear it's occurring nightly.

      Haven't had any trouble with curling up in the fetal position though. that is weird.

      Rave: Got my password restored at my college, so I can get on the Wifi and access my homework again.

      Cry: Nobody's continued my google picture war on the senseless banter thread.

      heh, I had a sleep study done about 10 years ago or more. They laughed at me the next day, saying they've never seen anyone curled up like a cat before. When the temp is fine, sleeping like that is okay (well, the tight fetal is never really okay lol). But, gosh, it is annoying when I trap my heat.
      I hate sleeping with another person for that reason too. It's as if, once I fall asleep I start running a fever. It's always been that way. Sleeping with another person or under heavy blankets makes it a million times worse. I can't help but worry about menopause and night sweats. Surely it can't be worse than what I've had all my life.... or can it

      One thing I've been doing lately is clasping my hands (like those pictures of pious people where only their fingers clasp). I thought we were supposed to go limp and relaxed when we sleep? Clasping fingers shouldn't stay that way- they should relax then separate. Not mine. I wake up with my fingers so cramped it hurts to separate them.

      Rant: The dog and her pups are killing me. I've been averaging about 4-5 hours of sleep a night.

      Rant: My meds aren't *quite* doing it for this period. Yesterday, I felt like someone kneed me in the crotch a few dozen times (haven't had that in YEARS) and today my back is hurting.

      Rave: We've not lost any more pups and they are too stinking cute.

      But sheesh momma is weird this time around. She goes through almost 2 gallons of water a day, 1 large bowl of dry dog food mixed with 1 large can of wet dog food twice a day, and an extra bowl of dry food... and she still goes after the cat food. She still goes through periods of heavy panting. Last night she went crazy and dug at a sliver of carpet I haven't pulled up yet. I guess laying down almost 24/7 feeding 8 hot babies would make anyone overheated and restless.

      Rant-ish: We have a glass club meeting tonight. We usually skip them but dues are due and hubby feels guilty about missing so many of them. It would be fine if the Museum was more high-end stuff. They collect and showcase EVERYTHING from everywhere in the US. And I mean everything Remember those jelly jars with cartoon characters on them? They have those. Remember Avon perfume bottles? They have those too. And they'll spend at LEAST 30 minutes tonight passing around that stuff. Hubby made me a glass snob. 1800-early/mid 1900 stuff only, please. Amberina, Fenton, Wave Crest, Peach Blow, Cameo. Those are the things I like and would like to learn more about.

      Hope everyone is well.

It's a good thing you went in this case! lol
      Nah, just misdiagnosed retinal detachment, missed by an incompetent optometrist.

      My lab partner and I relied on our other lab partner to forward us the electronic data needed to complete the lab report, but despite trying to contact him, he never forwarded the data. He didn't even bother showing up to class when the report was due today. As a result, we will fail the lab because we needed the data to complete half the lab report. This all sort of reminds me of a little story. I feel somewhat like Susie did, although I'm nicer about it.

      I suppose it's noteworthy to mention that, whilst sitting in the living room, my father was struck in the arm by fucking lightning last week. That must be worth raving about?

      Oh, well at least it wasn't a tumor or anything lol. Only reason I know all that is because I've got a small benign tumor pressing on my pituitary and it's very close to the optic nerve, so I have to stay aware of any new vision problems because it could be a sign that it's getting larger and pressing on those nerves.

      Thanks for the comic, Dolphin. I do love Calvin and Hobs. Sorry about your crappy partner though.

      WOW, Moose!!! Hope he's completely okay. Did he go to the Doctor?

      Rave: I actually slept fairly well last night. I got up at 3AM to let the dog out and that was it. Managed to get 7 hours all in all.
      Rant: I'm fairly exhausted today though. I broke down and took a caffeine pill. It will make me cramp more but I can't stay in bed all day.
      Rave: My back only hurts when I stand Hopefully, I'll only have a couple more days of this nonsense. My period is never as heavy as it has been this time around. I don't know if that has caused the back pain or if my meds just completely failed. I guess I'll find out next month.

      Rant: Because of the flow change and other factors, tampons made me very ill last night. I felt like barfing and had to lay down at 8PM instead of 9:30.
      Rant: Those other factors are ??? frugality. Is that a word? I've been being a cheapskate. I usually use Softcups but Walmart stopped selling them. CVS sells them for more than twice as much and I just haven't been able to make myself get them. I went on Amazon Prime last night and they were selling for $26.- $56. Turns out, the company that makes them was bought out by another company and they're doing away with my brand. Walmart will not be selling the replacement brand because "Walmart isn't friendly toward small business". I'm going to have to suck it up and buy from CVS

      Rave: I was talking to my daughter over FaceTime yesterday and the router dropped us. I complained to her about it over FB. She thought we had a crappy internet company. I told her I was just to cheap to buy a router. She bought us one. It should get here tomorrow. I told her I feel bad now and she said not to, that it's a gift, but she expects to hear from me and Sis more often

      The pups get cuter and cuter every day. They make little growl sounds and barks from time to time. When they're fussing, I'll sometimes pick them up and give them back to momma (they fuss when they roll too far away from her). Sometimes, I'll hold them for a few moments first. They usually stop crying the moment I pick them up and start talking to them. They can't hear me yet, but they already know my scent. It makes me giddy because they feel comforted by me.
      They're also quieter at night now which I'm REALLY loving
