Watched my first Bollywood film last night, Thank You. It was a strange experience. The breaking out in song and dance at a moment's notice got tiring after the first time (though admittedly I'm not a huge fan of any musical bar Mary Poppins).

What was odd though was the action scenes ripped straight out of Jackie Chan films. Nicely adapted, but still... not Jackie Chan.

Next up? Everybody gets together in the end. The film was about three women who hire a private detective to provide proof that their husbands are cheating on them (and incidentally, every damn one of them is a serial cheater). Of course they all get their balls handed to them on silver platters. Then at the end of the film got them right back and got back together with their women with promises of never doing it again (as if).

Meh. Not entirely impressed. Entertaining yes, though I did especially like one actor, Bobby Deol. His intense kill you with one look scenes highly reminded me of our favorite bad guy, Mark Sheppard. The guys could be long lost twins for all they play alike in their roles. Though Deol was convincingly able to play adorably stupid rather well.

  • Been feeling under the weather the past two days. Though my dizzy spells have never abated the migraines have been off and on. Yesterday I had severe migraines pretty much all day. Today it was being sick to my stomach.
  • Getting more comfortable in my paranormal investigation group. It's rather hard for me to come out of my shell. I'm trying to make a point of socializing more, and not isolating myself so much. I know I'm never going to come out of my depression if I don't take steps to protect myself. So, out of the hobbit hole I come.
  • Been watching a few films on Netflix during the day while I'm working. One in particular just tickled me. I wasn't all that impressed with the quality of the film, as I thought the plot very... incomplete. However, it was a treasure to see wee little baby-faced Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, and Cary Elwes. A film from way back in 1984 titled "Another Country". Best bit of it is that it takes place at an all boys school, in England, and Rupert's boyfriend is Cary. *squee*
  • Colored my hair a different shade than usual. Went with medium reddish brown, which on my already dark hair turns out more like a black henna color. It's black, but with a red tint. Of course, my grey hairs turned out a reddish brown, so it's got an odd highlighting to it. Not sure I like it, but it's good for now.

    That's it for now. Time to rest a bit and see if that doesn't make me feel a bit better.

    Hope everyone else's day/week/month/year have been going well.

    I haven't talked fandom in quite awhile. So, I'm giving it a go. Yet another random post.

    TELEVISION )

    MOVIES )

    That's about it for now. There's lots of other stuff I watch on occasion, my staple items such as Psych and Ghost Hunters, but... Time is funny these days. There never seems to be enough of it.

    I want to round up a list of stories I've been reading, but I'll need more time for that one. Next time!

    It just occurred to me the differences in certain shows and how they might connect. Like in Harry Potter, every wizard can see ghosts. At least in the movies, it's never mentioned if muggles can see them too. For the purposes of my argument, I'm saying they can't.

    So in shows like Ghost Whisperer, where only certain people (mediums and psychics) can see ghosts, perhaps it's some latent ability from Wizards being in their past somewhere? Or maybe some random manifestation like with muggleborns?

    Just a thought a thought that passed through my brain while eating my Cheerios this morning. It's a thing.

    ...of the dirty variety. Mom had me use undelete software on the desktop computer that Dad left behind. He cleaned out his harddrive, so we kinda wondered if he had something to hide. As it turns out, he had some interesting files. I found all sorts of transcripted text files from messenger conversations between him and his girlfriend. That's right folks, his girlfriend. I'm totally squicked. Couldn't read most of it, but it did leave enough information to give to the lawyer that can be later verified (dates and mentions of various files for their trips, gifts given, etc.). Gah. I seriously need to clean my brain.

    So, hubby helped me out. Get your minds out of the gutter folks. We had a Hugh Jackman movie marathon this evening and watched X-Men 2, Kate & Leopold, and Swordfish. Yeah, that's the stuff. Swordfish gave me a plot bunny though. It's gonna be a big one, and I'm not entirely sure I can pull it off without help. Basically, it would be a Spander (what else would I write?) and it would be loosely based on the relationship between Travolta's and Berry's characters on Swordfish. O_o It all makes sense in my head. I've just gotta figure out how far reaching their manipulations with people go, if they're working for someone else (and who it would be), how Buffy and Angel figure into everything. Fun, yeah? I thought so.

    Oh, and I totally hate Yahoo right now. They tightened the bolts on their bulk email fiters. I didn't figure out until late Friday that the reason I wasn't getting any of my emails and replies was because they all ended up in the bulk folder. I don't know how many emails I must have lost. Order receipts, mailing list subscription emails, emails from people in my address book, replies from others... Oh, and of course any emails notifying me of replies to entries in my LiveJournal. If I missed anyone, I'm sorry. I still don't have it fixed, but at least I know where my email has been all this week. *sigh*

    Email Hell

    I went on vacation. I came back with over 1000 emails waiting for me. Actually, my Outlook and servers weren't working right when I first started, and Outlook crashed once under the weight of the emails, so I actually had 2000 when the emails re-downloaded.

    I had about half of them end up getting filtered out, so that was good. Part of the problem has been that I recently closed three email accounts on my domain. So now my catchall account is sending them all to me. I know, setup a filter to not have them sent. Didn't get a chance to do it before I left though. Now I'm getting so much porn spam, it's just unbelievable. Not all of it is that, there's some email from Japanese pharmaceutical firms. Yay.

    Sigh. I finally got it all done, though. Oh, had a decent Thanksgiving. Watched the extended version of the second LOTR, and The Italian Job. WooHoo! Good fliks, and next one I'm gonna watch is X2 *bounce bounce*

    More from me on Monday when I'm done with my Nano, once and for all.

    Lord, I'm such a geek. All these movies I grew up with, most of which Mom made me watch on movie night. Not complaining now as I love them now. But I gotta say, Jeniffer Lopez new song with the snagged beat in the background just makes me want to go out and binge myself on James Bond films...
