Playing house all week

Mom's been in France all week (she left last Saturday) and my Dad had a conference in San Francisco all week, so I've had the house to myself. Seanie's been here as well; it's been like we live together, except we don't. :-p

We watched a Disney movie every day! It wasn't planned, it just worked out that way. Fantasia on Monday; Fantasia 2000 on Tuesday. Wednesday we watched Snow White because it was the only VHS Disney movie I could find in our house. (I had been hoping to locate our copy of Aladdin, but it seems to be hiding quite well.) On Thursday we went to the library (first time I've been in over a year) and they had Sleeping Beauty on VHS and Hercules on DVD, so we got those and watched them, too.

(OMG Hercules is horrible. REALLY REALLY CRAPTACULAR. The voices just seemed off, and the whole use of celebrity cameos in animated films really kills character development. Ugh.)

School's OK.

Had a bit of an incident at the clubhouse last night. One of the traffic control staff was a little...out of control. We had to get him off the property, because he was having a nervous breakdown and was acting irrationally. But he's been working there for twenty years, so it had to be done in such a way that he wouldn't piss off the security firm that actually employs him (the guards don't work for us directly) and get fired. Finally he was convinced to go to the hospital for observation, but it literally took all day to get him to that point. My poor manager had a fifteen hour day! Stressful situation all around.
