Almost Not Sick.  
Enough not sick, in fact, that the thought of doing something social isn't totally inconceivable (in fact, tomorrow is BSG watching night at Wil's). So, now I'm back to being bored, and in two or three days, maybe completely not sick. It's been a long two weeks.

But I'm feeling a bit depressed -- well, not really depressed (I've been depressed, this ain't it), but blue and aimless. Bored. They go together, you know. Because being sick is depressing, although when you're really sick, you're kinda too busy to be depressed. But when it's a cold, you've got a bit of time to think about how it's going to take forever to go away, which is probably the next worst thing to knowing that it never will (and almost as depressing as politics. Especially recent politics).

But anyway, my birthday is sneaking up on me here. Soon I'll be old. I should go pick out a cane, maybe. And soon after that, I'll be dead. And that's all so depressing. Feh.
In the mood: sickslightly sick
Now playing: Natalie Imbruglia - Wishing I Was There

You ain't old. I'm old. It's not so bad, once you get used to watching your gray hairs fall out and discussing your ailments rather than the last cool book/movie/episode you read/watched.

They say laughter is the best medicine. So, I present this:


which in the blog I originally found it in was presaged by the following comment:

In this squeaky-clean decade, when ultra-safe dorks like Ryan Seacrest and Star Jones are major celebrities, one tends to wonder: How would Kubrick's masterpiece The Shining be marketed for today's sensitive American? As a feel-good family film? If so, this could very well be the result.

So far the two people I've shown it to weren't able to appreciate it, one because he hadn't actually _seen_ The Shining, and the other because he didn't follow popular cultural trends. So.... good luck to you! :P

Yeah, that one's been floating around for a while.
