Just To Prove I'm Not Dead

For some reason I've been in a rather cranky mood since Sunday and I can't put my finger on why. No, it's not that reason, I've got about a week until that hits. And I keep meaning to post about stuff, but then when I sit down to do it, nothing seems of interest to me. I did intend to discuss the 'Stargates', but have covered most of my thoughts in others more in depth posts.

I saw Talladega Nights Saturday and was amused. There were some jokes that seemed to go on for a little too long, but I a laughed out loud at several points which is rare for me with mainstream comedies. Of course the thing that amused me most was Gary Cole playing Will Ferrell's dad. First off, Gary is nine years older than Will. Secondly, he's supposed to be a broken down, pot-head, drunk...yet he's in better physical shape than Will. I especially liked the brief shot where Gary's shirt rode up a bit. :) If you didn't know already, I've been a huge fan ever since Midnight Caller.

The kiss at the end between Ricky Bobby and Girard. Yes, it was obviously played for laughs so less threatening to the sexuality of most men sitting in the theatre. However, the kiss went on longer than it really needed to to get the joke across. Kudos to Will who didn't seem to have any problem with it (after all, he co-wrote the script) and, in his way, maybe helped to make the whole thing less of an issue with people. Or maybe I'm being overly optimistic.

Watched the third episode of Life on Mars last night. Unfortunately, I dozed of during the show, which is no reflection of the quality I was just exhausted, and I think I missed something important. Was the guy who was shot Sam's father? I thought they made reference to that in the promo last week, but he didn't seem too upset when he ended up injured. Interestingly, the part of the show that grabs me the least is the sci-fi/fantasy/did he travel back in time? angle. It's the relationship between Sam and Gene that I find most fascinating. Though not in that way. ;p

Maybe if I try writing some fic tonight it will help me with my funk. It will probably be BSG related since I think I solved a problem with an idea I had for a fic set during the mini. And I'm still trying to get past my trepidation working in the 'Hornblower' universe. Too many good writers writing Archie and Horatio! ;-)

And why is the internet so quiet today? I'm not even getting much spam. You all are suppose to be entertaining me!
