Ugh.  I cringe as I type this.  Okay.....The Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series is going to be a movie on IFC.

I started reading the Anita Blake series by Laurel K. Hamilton some years ago.  It's a good idea:  in a world where vampires, were-animals and magic are trying to exist side by side with the mundanes, someone has to enforce the rules.  In St. Louis, that someone is Anita Blake, a federally authorized vampire killer.  See, if a vamp breaks the law, there's only one punishment and that's a short walk on a sunny pier.  Our girl Anita has dispatched many a bad vampire.  But the longer she does her job, the harder it is to tell good from bad.  For most of Anita's life, morality was a black and white concept and she's the Good Guy.  But what if she's not.  What if she enjoys her job just a little too much? What if she's actually a darker creature than those she hunts?

That sounds good, right?  Glen Morgan should totally take the plot in that direction because that's interesting and not all how the books handled the story. which I complain about how creepy the books are. )

I know, deep down, my president really IS this geeky.  And I love him for it. 

You know Edward was thinking it.

Has anybody heard anything about the new Prisoner remake?

Rhys Ifans is Xeno Lovegood.  I approve.

[ profile] beeej and I went to a craft fair today.  This is what I bought:

It's a Scottish coin painted and made into a pendant.  The new trend in jewelry seems to be using old coins in various ways.  I'm drawn to thistles these days, so the Scottish coins caught my eye.  Now I just have to find a proper chain.

Epic fail or epic win, either way is good with me!  I so hope this gets picked up for next year!!!  

In a nutshell, the CW decides to develop a tv series based on these books written by this author.  Take a moment to appreciate the author's photo.  She's posed with a "unicorn".   I don't have words.

I've found another thing to add to my Birthday Wish List.

Why does Netflix hate me so?  They're making a good bit of money off of me as I've gotten slow about returning movies, so why can't they send the first movie of my queue when it says it's available??  No, they send me the second.   It seems Netflix thinks I need to watch "Milk" and it's boy-kissing instead of the new animated Wonder Woman featuring the voice of one Nathan Fillion. 

In other news, the Tuscan Pane bread from Trader Joe's is my new crack.

One of the benefits of having few friends is that I rarely get tagged for memes. 

This has allowed me to metaphorically wallow in my metaphorical bean bag chair in the corner of the rumpus room, metaphorically being lazy while eating metaphorical cheez curlz and playing metaphorical 8-bit Nintendo games and every now and again yellling "Yeah!  What she said." as my contribution to the general conversation.

I have, however, been tagged by[ profile] beeej for a meme.   So I have to, you know, post and stuff.  I'm also adding my own question.

You Are An ENTJ
The Executive

You are a natural leader - with confidence and strength that inspires others.
Driven to succeed, you are always looking for ways to gain, power, knowledge, and expertise.
Sometimes you aren't the most considerate person, especially to those who are a bit slow.
You are not easily intimidated - and you have a commanding, awe-inspiring presence.

In love, you hold high standards... for yourself, for your relationship, and for your significant other.
While it's easy for you to impress others, it's hard for you to find someone who impresses you.

At work, you are organized and good at delegating. You understand how to achieve goals.
You would make a great CEO, entrepreneur, or consultant.

How you see yourself: Rational, calm, and objective

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Inflexible, controlling, and overbearing

It started Thursday night.  I blame the Chef Boyardee cheese ravioli in a can that I wanted to eat before it expired.   The Chef LIED TO ME!!  That mess was full of badness and I don't care that it was supposed to expire next month.  

So, Thursday night was bad. Like, I won't even describe it bad.
Friday I called in sick to work.  That was a lost day of napping and running to the toilet and drinking lots of water.
Today things have quieted down, but my innards are exhausted from the mayhem.  I'm cheering myself up by watching old episodes of Big Bang Theory between trips to the bathroom.

I'm eating toast, but even though I think I'd be fine with other food nothing sounds good.  I know I won't be eating anything with red sauce for some time.

At least I had nothing big planned this weekend like a wedding or a trip, so that's an upside.  I did miss Sci Fi Friday at Chez [ profile] beeej  *pouts* but my time sense is so screwed up that feels like days ago.

Okay, back to napping.

You know that feeling when you're just going through your day and you remember something really good and there's a little microburst of joy in your brain matter?  I love that feeling.  I had forgotten it was Friday and there's tv on tonight and I'll be visiting[ profile] beeej !  The simple things in life make me happy. 

For example:

This weekend I'll see Watchmen.  I'm guessing my favorite part of the movie will be Rorschach while my favorite part of the book was Dr. Manhattan.  All I know for sure is I'm not drinking much liquid because this movie is about 63 hours long.

There's a recent Star Trek trailer in which there's a shot of Spock that makes me all wibbly inside.  I think I'm sort of in love with Spock again.  Thanks Quinto!

The power of Pretty Boy Witches just won't stop!  Ha!  I remember seeing that movie with[ profile] amandajane5  We laughed and laughed.

I'm limiting my budget on fannish stuff, but I love supporting indie musicians and film makers by buying stuff directly from the artists.  So I couldn't resist buying a movie made by one Walter Koenig which will also get me a copy of the indie made ST: Of Gods and Monsters.  Please check it out and buy a copy if you can and you're so inclined. 

And I've recently become infatuated with Sheldon from "Big Bang Theory".   More accurately, with Jim Parsons who plays Sheldon.  I started watching the show a few weeks ago and I'm just smitten with the way he plays that character.  The whole thing is cute and funny enough, but there's about 14 levels going on with Sheldon and I'm just smitten.  That's me.  I love the crazy one or the geeky one and the outsider.

Now, if there was a show featuring these two, my head would explode.
