So what with Fat Cat Bob taking up like my entire computer space, and inflicting hisself on me and Nope Turtle, I ended up doing the movie night thing by meselves. Wifey is still up at the 'rents, and Sapper was working, so I had the quiet time thing going... before Bob showed up I did the mag rotational on a couple of 9mm Glock mags....
Forbidden Planet, 1956
1956 Academy Award Winner for Special Effects... great story... very clean and professional.

So, light buzz, good movies and Ima all about just watching and waiting. Shipped the last Flammenwerfer for the 'seasonal funtimes'... I don't see being able to build another one in the few weeks before weirdness envelops the world. Go figure.
