"We'll fill our mouths with cinnamon."

I used to keep day planners, and I'd mark days when I didn't write with an L, for Lost. A Lost Day. If I still kept a day planner, half of April and almost all of May thus far would have earned an L.

Today will probably be another L. And tomorrow. Because the selling of this house, though we won't be moving, is causing chaos again.

But the sun came back yesterday afternoon. And the today is a little warmer, currently 64˚F. I'm not sure I've ever been as relieved to see the sun as I was yesterday. This should translate to me being more productive, but we woke to news of tomorrow's disruption, which means today is also disrupted.

One step forward, two steps back.

Yesterday, Kyle Cassidy suggested on Twitter that people list their ten favorite "kaiju" films. Here are mine, ranked in order of year of release:

1. King Kong (1933)
2. The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953)
3. Gojira (1954)
4. Rodan (1956)
5. Reign of Fire (2002)
6. King Kong (2005)
7. The Host (2006)
8. Cloverfield (2008)
9. Monsters (2010)
10. Pacific Rim (2013)
Honorable Mention: The utterly preposterous, but endlessly charming, Reptilicus (1961)
