What I did on my day off:
Spent two hours in an arcade playing Galaga while my kids attempted to play Dance Dance Revolution. Watched a father and small child bond over killing zombies in House of Dead. It was really heartwarming to see the dad pat the little boy on the head and say things like Nice kill, son! and You really know how to make those brains splatter. That's my boy!
Watched Titus. Have you ever seen Titus? I am completely obsessed with this movie now. Long, bizzare, surreal, sometimes hard to follow, but an incredible piece of film making. I think I'll watch it again today.
Lost my voice. This may be amusing to Justin and my children, but it is frustrating and annoying to me. I knew it was going to happen. I tried to hit the high note in a Radiohead song yesterday and nothing came out. Not even an off-key squeal, which is what I was expecting. Hours later, the voice was pretty much gone. I can manage a few hoarse words here and there. Answering the phones at work will be so much fun today.
Saw Blade II. I love movies that have that one scene where you want to stand up in the middle of the movie theater, point at the screen and yell Take that, motherfucker! Yeeeehaaa! Very little dialogue. Very little resemblance to the first Blade. A whole lot of fun. Action, action everywhere. Completely enjoyable movie going experience.
And this morning, I dreamed of an earthquake in Vermont that reached a 7.5 on the Richter scale. This happened while we were acting out Archie comic books. I was Jughead. Don't laugh, you were the dog.
My usual after-stuff post won't be up until later in the morning. I'm going to try to actually get to work on time today.
Coffee, Paxil and Robitussin. The breakfast of champions.
