Movie Overdose

We’ve watched so many movies in the last few weeks that they’re all run­ning togeth­er. We just fin­ished The Trans­form­ers. Yes­ter­day was Baby­lon 5: A Call to Arms (we’d seen that before, of course) and Catch Me If You Can. Some day before that was Har­ry Pot­ter & the Pris­on­er of Azk­a­ban as well as Gob­let of Fire. Sam watched Order of the Phoenix, but I haven’t seen it yet. He also watched Gods and Gen­er­als, but I could­n’t even pre­tend to be inter­est­ed, and the accents were too offen­sive to my ears. There’s been at least one sea­son, maybe more, of West Wing. We’ve still got Star­dust and some oth­er stuff that Sam rent­ed. My brain is explod­ing and I can’t remem­ber the rest, but I know there was more.

And what do I want to watch? Fire­fly. Which I can’t see, because Sam’s par­ents have our Fire­fly DVDs. Includ­ing Seren­i­ty. Bah.

Sam real­ly, real­ly loves movies. Can you tell? I love my man. I wish he had a movie-view­ing bud­dy near­by so he could see stuff in the actu­al the­ater.

Sam’s last day off is tomor­row. It’s been so good to have him home! I’m ter­ri­bly spoiled all the time, but more than a week with him at home has been absolute­ly incred­i­ble.

Dis­parate thoughts from a very low ener­gy day. In fact, it was so low-ener­gy that I thought I post­ed this entry last night, and nev­er did.

I has a fever. Do Not Want. Blah. Can’t brain. Short atten­tion span means you just get links and such. Good links, but links.

I start­ed this post on Sep­tem­ber 7, the day after the grand lady moved on to find out what’s next. I find myself cer­tain that she was­n’t afraid, that she looked for­ward to a reunion with her hus­band Hugh and oth­ers who had gone before. And yet I, who nev­er even met her in per­son, was too upset to fin­ish the post or even look at it again for two months.
