|08:30 pm - I'm running on empty and I'm leaking fluid from my head.|
I'm sick and I'm miserable.
It's just a head cold. I wouldn't normally be so wiped out, but I failed completely to fall asleep last night. I called in to work around 5:30 in the morning, fell asleep sometime after seven, and woke up again sometime around 9:15.
That's not a lot of rest.
And now it's late evening, and I'm not really sure where the day has gone. I remember watching the last couple of episodes of the first season of Tripping the Rift... I finished that around 11:00, and I still can't figure out whether I like that show or not (that probably means I don't). Then I took a shower, made a quick run to the grocery store, and took a walk. This brings us up to 1:00...ish...
Seriously, what have I been doing all day? Does anybody know? I reheated some mushroom curry, I made two abortive attempts to take a nap, I made some coffee, I lost a staring match with one of the cats... That's what, another hour and a half at most? Where did all that time go? I've been conscious all day. I must be sick. Which is too bad, since I'm definitely going to work in the morning. I feel as if my body and my brain are out of synch with each other. I only experience this when I'm ill and fatigued, but hopefully I'll get enough rest tonight that I'll only have to contend with one of those tomorrow.
Oh, well. Anyway, a few months ago I was cleaning my room and filled a small box with things I'd borrowed from other people. I found that box today and have spent the last hour and a half watching Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2. I missed this movie when it was new, and borrowed it from a coworker last year when I disgusted her by admitting that I'd never seen it. I wasn't excited to borrow it, and I'm not really enjoying it very much now. The effectiveness of any horror film is very subjective, and this movie just isn't doing much for me. Well, either that or it's no longer the year 2000, and the Blair Witch Project is no longer topical. I don't want to turn it off, though, partly because the background noise is pleasant enough, but mostly so that I don't have to lie myself through a discussion tomorrow when I return the DVD and the second question I'm asked is "what did you think?" The first question will be, of course, "why did you keep my DVD for so long?"
The movie's over in a few minutes. I think I'll take another walk. Then I should probably make this another early night. This time I'm tired enough to sleep well.

You know Colin, sometimes you remind me of Edward Norton so bad it hurts.
Ought I to take offense at this?
Not really. He's cool. Now SLEEEEEEEP!:P
Yeah, 'kay. I'm leading a double life as the leader of the resistance movement, and when I come out of hiding you'll be one of the first to go.
So THAT explains the guy that lives in your closet.
And those suddenly missing buildings in Madison.
No, that's my bad...
Get well soon! It seems to be going around this week.
I hated both Blair Witch movies (for obvious reasons), however I found the sequel to be more tolerable than the first if only because there's lots of tits.
I was going to ask what the obvious reasons were, but it only took a second to figure out.
I thought the first one was interesting, but "interesting" doesn't mean "worth seeing more than once." If you ever need something to hold over Tom's head, he recommended Book of Shadows more highly than anyone else I've ever spoken to.
What does he recommend about it? I mean other than the boobies its got nothing. Its more like an actual movie than the first but still.
Bad acting, bad plot, bad Tom.
I say screw it and watch "The Bare Bitch Project" which coincidentally also sucked but at least people were fucking.
You know, he did mention the nudity when he recommended it. I dunno, I don't think I've ever seen a bad movie that was justified by its nudity.
Anyway, there were at least five porn parodies of The Blair Witch Project. I don't think I could bring myself to sit through any of them, but I'm sure they at least they live up to their own hype.

I remember "Bare Wench Project" right off the top of my head.
BW2:BoS (an abbreviation I'm sure you'll never see again) was memorable because it both managed to convince me it had a right to exist and then completely lost me by blatantly contradicting itself. The "surprise" ending made about as much sense as having Texas Chainsaw Massacre colnclude with the revelation that it had actually been the lost travelers butchering hill-folk all along

Dammit, I gotta sign in more.
Yeah... Book of Shadows did very little for me, but y'know what the worst part was? The title. Maybe it's just me, but I think Book of Shadows is a great
phrase, and they wasted it on a mediocre movie which does not concern a book, shadows, or a Book of Shadows. It's an accidentally sardonic choice, given that the Hot, Naked, Wiccan Girl (not the character's actual name) spends so much time decrying popular misconceptions about her beliefs. Here's the Wikipedia entry for Book of Shadows
, if you're not familiar with the term.
Ooo, sorry I bugged you when you're sick, feel better soon Colin. :)
