Reporting as Requested

So, just an update so that all my loyal readers know that I continue to lurk on the earthbound plane--I'm still looking for work, and when not so involved, spending my time reading, watching movies and playing games. If it weren't for the lack of money thing, it wouldn't be too bad.

I've established a DVD exchange with my nieces, and thanks to them I can now claim to have watched Twilight, Doomsday, Juno, Underworld 3, The Descent and The Complete First Season of The Tudors (which was awesome, despite playing fast and loose with the actual facts). They have gotten to see Neil Marshall's first movie, Dog Soldiers as well as re-watch the first two Underworlds and the complete Blade Trilogy. I got to re-watch the Resident Evil Trilogy. They also loaned me the re-make of The Hitcher (with Sean Bean instead of Rutger Hauer as the homicidal hitchhiker) but I haven't watched that one yet because the first one was so good that I am still wrestling with my expectations.

I am now reading Twilight, which I have been assured is much better than the movie (and honestly, how could it be worse?) and as long as I don't get too nostalgic for all that teen-aged high school angst which used to permeate my workplace, I'll probably wend my way through the quad-logy (which I am also borrowing from my nieces).

Good to hear you're OK, I hope things start to look up soon.

From what I've heard, Twilight is just "Romeo & Juliet with fangs".

But I could be wrong.

You might want to check out Taken. And it's good to see you pop your head out. Did you see your shadow? 'Cause that means no more blog posts for six weeks.

I might be confusing this with something else.

Oh, Matt--Taken was awesome! If I had any money I would buy it and watch it repeatedly....

LOL Harvey! I guess that would work if Romeo was already dead when the play started.

So, Contagion, what chick-flicks are your favorite? :)

Pat, I'm just killing time until your next book comes out...
