An island flying through the sky

We have the keys to our new flat! Hurrah! *does a little dance* I feel so much better now, even though we have loads still to do. We did scary lease signing and cheque writing this afternoon, and then Sandy bought mugs and coffee and milk and we had coffee and measured the place and walked round it going coo. We now have a mug which says "beware of the toast with no ears" which is cool too.

And the name of the new flat is called - ta da!

Hence the title, and the new icon (which is by Escher).

Happy now.

Cool. I used to love Laputa, but I've not seen it for years. I've a feeling it's available on DVD somehow (although probably some funny region my little dvd drive can't play), so you've prompted me to go look for it :)

That's the one. There's a few box sets with a bunch of stuff by the same studio that look quite nice.

Is this any relation of the flying island of mad scientists in Gulliver's Travels?

Ooh - like it!

great name. Just, er, be tactful around any spanish folk who happen to come round; "laputa" means "whore" in Spanish. Hence the Miyazaki film will have a different name when Disney get around to releasing it... (disney have the rights to most of the ghibli films now, which isn't as bad as it could be, as it at least means we get to see them eventually...)

*grin* I was just about to point this out with relevance to French, too, though the idea of hanging out with les putains seems rather neat.

Rar :)

Rar! Go you!

Now, if the name of the new flat is called Laputa, what is the title of the name of the new flat called...?

I'll get me coat, said Lewis Carroll.

Congratulations to you and Sandy. I'll be round to visit, poke in corners and cause funny smells that won't go away as soon as you invite me

I like it, though I prefer the "La puta" connotation.
