SSar's Beast
Argh! Just as I sat down to type this, I realised who ELSE has a birthday today. Libby, Lillian Hsu, and LOUISE PHYN OF COURSE. Why is May 15th L-Day? This is something I will assuredly never know. Unless one of you good people sees fit to explain it to me: something about coral and iguanas?

There's essays and suchlike, but overall things are pretty good. So if any of you are feeling pretty down, tap me on the shoulder hard, okay? Chances are, if you're on this friends list, I owe you a hug, a letter, an email, story or poetry reviews, a walk in the park, a potato, or a meme.

Well, I think I only owe Lucy a potato.

Went kinda bat-shit at work on Saturday because of having no sleep. I won't bore you with the details, but one of my interviewees thought I was having a seizure. I also won't bore you with excuses: I hadn't gone on MSN the previous night and had actually gone to bed at a reasonable hour. I just didn't sleep well. And V Red keeps you alert... for a given value of 'alert'. But it was very very funny and Charlie still considers me a useful employee.

Saw MI:III, which was a lot better than its trailer and ZM's ad suggested. Thank goodness.

And yes, the third X-Men movie looks stupid. I'll be seeing it with friends, maybe I can sit next to someone who can Ping-Pong snarky comments.

*looks around hopefully*

Or, if not, I'll just imagine I'm sitting next to Mridula or someone...

I'm fearing for the third X-Men movie, now. The good bathmat reports that a poster for the movie has appeared on the Billboard of Doom... and the Billboard of Doom has never been wrong in living memory.

There is still hope: ZM has not advertised it on their radio programme.

I shall now commencing clinging to this slim thread of hope.

*does so*

X-men seems stupid?
You MUST elaborate.

From all I have seen and heard it is a good movie.
It has FAR better breading than the mission impossible movies anyway, the other two were HORRIFIC! (to the point where I cant even contemplate seeing 3, even if it was free)

No, and if you did contemplate MI:3, I would try to dissuade you. Few who disliked the others would like this one. I liked the baseballs, however much suspension of disbelief they required.

Concerning XMen: The Last Stand, I had heard people's comments, seen the trailer, and seen/heard various advertising. The trailer's main hook was the destruction of the Golden Gate Bridge, which doesn't thrill me. All the highlighted moments were heavily dramatic quotes. That doesn't thrill me either.

Still, I'll probably enjoy it, if only for the boosted opportunity it affords to daydream myself into having the characters' powers.
