i continued my YA kick with the novel that the miyazaki film was based on--although there were some minor differences (the romantic plot was slightly more prominent in the movie), the heart of the story--a young witch leaves home, as all young witches do, to make a living--and all of the sweet and eccentric characters remain the same. the few illustrations are pretty adorable, as well.
some administrative notes:
i am so over the oc. not even julie cooper and summer make the show worth watching anymore. though it is funny that the new character of reed is played by what's-her-face, you know, the girl from wet hot american summer that the michael showalter (from the state) character likes? that's the best camp movie ever, and is way worthier of your attention than the oc is.
also, i will be in atlanta all weekend--look for a post w/ lots of pictures when i get back!
