stoopbeck: (Simon Going Mad)
I'm one of those people who will do anything to keep from throwing up. When I have flu I will lie perfectly still for two days in order to keep bad things from happening. Even when I know I'd probably feel better if I just, you know, threw up and all. Yeah.

But oh my god, I feel like I'm going to puke. And I have to get up for work in four-and-a-half hours. AND WHAT AM I DOING? I'm sitting in my uncomfortable computer, hunched over with an arm wrapped tightly around my stomach, reading fic and trying really hard not to think about food. Or eating. Or anything my brother would bring up in casual conversation.

And there's no way in hell I'm getting out of work tomorrow even if I'm bleeding out of my eyes, because we have omg so much stuff to get done, and really the only way I'd be able to lie perfectly still and try not to throw up is if it's raining, and Weather.com has just informed me that we won't be getting any rain until noon. THANK YOU WEATHER.COM. ANYONE WITH WEATHER-FU PLEASE TO BE MAKING IT RAIN FROM 6:30 AM THANK YOU KINDLY. PINEAPPLE SACRIFICES WILL BE MADE WITH GRATITUDE LATER ONCE I'M ABLE TO MOVE WITHOUT WANTING TO DIE.

I'm going to go lie in bed perfectly still for the next four-and-a-half hours and hope for rain. FUN TIMES.

ETA: So I'm even more screwed than I thought I was. That tiny chance of rain? ON SATURDAY. Not Friday. I FAIL AT INTERNETTING. TODAY IS GOING TO BE AWESOME LIKE BURNING. THE BAD KIND OF AWESOME LIKE BURNING.

So I finally watched Neverwhere. (Thank you, YouTube!)

And OMG it was so much better than I thought it would be! Of course it helped my expectations were lowered by everyone telling me that it was totally crap and grainy and bad special effects and 90's background music, but wow. SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, in which Carabbas was frankly quite terrifyingly odd and looked like a Dairy Queen commercial, and Door looked like a cheap knockoff of Death of the Endless. And I have a whole new level of respect for Croup and Vandemar, somewhat akin to my whole new level of respect for Arthur Dent after watching the BBC Hitchhiker's Guide.

And two of the Neverwhere cast have played Beatles, which just adds more awesomeness to any scene with Richard and Islington. And I want a Marquis de Carabbas. May I have one, pretty please?

I'm somewhat disturbed to see that there may be a new movie in the makings, though. All I ask is that Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the Marquis, and I'm happy. Oooh, and Gina Torres could play Hunter!
