Update on Me... and I saw ghost rider

Well, my "run of show" time at Pixar comes to an end at the end of March, as I finish up on Ratatouille. I got a chance to work on a really cool disneyland submarine ride, and to work on a truly great film during my time here. And just yesterday, I accepted an offer to go to PDI Dreamworks at the beginning of May to work on Madagascar 2. I was a huge fan of the first one, and a really big fan of the style of animation. I've always prefered a more cartoony approach to animation. So this should be lots of fun for me. If anyone has any suggestions about places to live down near Redwood City, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, I saw Ghost Rider. Its fun. Nicholas Cage is great in it. The cheesiness lies mostly in some of the portrayal of the villains. But overall I really enjoyed the ride. If you liked Fantastic 4, you'll like Ghost Rider. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person that liked Fantastic 4 though. So maybe it will be hard to find like minds here.
