Punishment and Reward

We had to watch the Dungeons and Dragons movie for punishment tonight because Googlygoo was mad that I poked him in the eye the other morning when he woke me up wearing a mask. I tried to explain to him that I didn't know it was him, that it was just some strange mask looming and it was early morning, but it was no good.

Crap. That really isn't going to make any sense to other people, is it?

Luckily for us, we also had Disc 3 of Fruits Basket!

This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite anime series. It is hysterical. I paused it about three minutes into the first episode and pointed out that it had already been more entertaining than the entire D&D movie (which, we agreed, was about 107 minutes longer than it should have been).

Fruits Basket (and no, that's not a typo) is basically the story of The Nicest Girl In The Whole Entire World Universe Ever and how she lives with a bunch of characters who turn into critters from the Chinese zodiac.

It's not crazy and wacky like Excel Saga, but it is a bit off-kilter in a really entertaining way, and the main character is really and truly the nicest, best, most likeable character I've ever seen on TV. The show totally rocks and you should definitely watch it if you get the chance.

Even our 'thulhu likes it.
