not Coraline. Witchnyn. - Mostly, it is...

06:14 am - not Coraline. Witchnyn.
I'm just now getting to bed. If things had gone as planned this night, I might have had something to say about Coraline at this point. For once, the most likely path to this result - missing it for leaving too late - is not the one that I traveled this time. Though I left late enough that I needed to drive there, I did actually arrive in good time to buy a ticket and stand waiting for friends. Unfortunately, when kattas arrived, it was to tell me that witchnyn had fallen skating and was on her way to the hospital to wait for three hours to be seen. Seeing as I had a car, and knowing that Emergency room waits can be pretty long when the injury is not highly time sensitive, and that it was only about three and a half hours until the subway stopped running, I went along to offer a ride if one should be useful. By the time the two of us arrived at the hospital, the other members of the movie watching group were just leaving, so I ended up having a fairly extended conversation with kattas, who stayed until the end despite having to work Saturday. As it turned out, witchnyn got released with a cast for her fracture around 2:00. Since Fran's Diner was just across the road, none of us had eaten dinner, and cooking didn't seem like a fun thing, we ate before I dropped them home.
witchnyn has proposed making another attempt to see Coraline tomorrow, so perhaps I will have some thoughts then.
