fat pony like thunder

Yikes!

Damn, I just had to take some of the Dancing Lessons people off my friends list because I was nearly spoiled for Buffy by an entry. If you were just, um, befriended and then immediately taken off, sorry about that. I really am trying to be spoiler free now...

Grrrrr!

I am having a crappy morning. I slept it out, then the washing machine leaked all over the kitchen floor, blending with just-kicked out cat litter to form a sort of hideous paste, and then while on the bus into work I noticed that I have developed some sort of weird eczema like rash on the palms of my hands! I have the plague! And it's itchy!

Unclean, unclean!

I may have a hideous plague (see below), but luckily I sit next to the paper's health writer, who is a qualified pharmacist. She looked at my plague sores and said they look like an allergic reaction to something. So I don't have some sort of lurgy after all. I hope. Anyway, I am now slathered in hydro-cortisone cream, and feel strangely soothed. I need more tea.

Okay, this is the last quiz.

Hee I thought as much!



I'm Veronica Sawyer.

My good will towards Winona Ryder is based on how much I loved her in that film (well, that and Beetlejuice). And, it being the fashion-disastrous time it was, I wanted those blue tights....

Cultural Imperialism (so there)

Hmmm. Apparently the film version of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (aka the greaest comic ever made) will be quite unlike the original comic. Partly because they've introduced more American characters, and moved some of the action there. And my beloved Mina Murray is no longer leader of the league.

This pisses me off no end. Why the hell do American producers insist on shoving in token American characters or actors into terribly non-American things? Will Americans really refuse to see a film if it's set in another country, or go to see it just because there's one American actor in it? Surely not. If the League film is a success, and despite these reports I really hope it is, I can't imagine it will be because they shoved in Tom Sawyer.

I really do love America; my parents lived in D.C. for three years and I've spent a lot of time there, but man, it's only a matter of time before this isn't a joke....
