Miscellaneous Sunday Ramblings

I haven't listened to the podcast yet. Not out of fear of me becoming all ranty, but because I've been absorbed in reading people's posts on 'Black Market'. Some of the recaps have been negative, but at least there is valid reasoning behind them. And I've seen a lot of open, rational debate. Fandom can be sane if it wants to be. ;)

I saw Brokeback Mountain with Mom yesterday. It was a surprisingly painless experience. After the first sex scene, she turned to me and asked if that's what people were getting upset about. I said there was a bit more to come, but, basically, yes. After the film, she commented how ridiculous it was for people to get worked up about that because you couldn't even see anything. Apparently, I didn't have to waste my time reassuring her about the sexual content of the film.

Today I went to see Tha Matador. I went in with no expectations and was very entertained. There were some WTF? moments plot wise, but Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear (two faves of mine) had terrific chemistry together. So much so that I started getting slashy thoughts (though, in my defense, there was some context for it). When did I turn into one of those people? Oh, yeah, 'Hornblower'. :p

Perhaps I'm the only one who is interested in this story, but for those of you, like me, who watch ABC News regularly Bob Woodruff and his cameraman were seriously injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq today. So far, all that has been reported is they both suffered head injuries (they were wearing their protective gear fortunately), are out of surgery, and may be transported to Germany as early as this evening. I was just getting over Peter Jennings being gone. I don't deal well with change.

In happier news, today is raislak's birthday. Happy Birthday! Hope you didn't get drenched by the rain today and got lots of cool gifts from the family. :)

  • So How is 2010 Treating You?

    2009 ended and 2010 began rather inauspiciously for me. Like last year, I was sound asleep when the clock struck twelve. Unlike last year, I was…

  • The I'm Still Around Post

    I realized I hadn't boasted in a week which may lead some people to worry I'm lying in a ditch. I've just had a lot of stuff going on and not much…
