It's further than you think

One of the best things about the work-from-home-two-days-a-week deal continues to be the ability to have the TV on in the background. Today that means Labyrinth, one of those perennial comfort movies for which my love knows no bounds. (As many of you know, this is coming from the girl who zeroed in on her senior prom dress from one level up and across the mall because it reminded me of Sarah's bubble ballgown. Or at least what I remembered of it, since the movie wasn't out on video or HBO yet at the time. But I had gone to see it three times.)

Comfort movies are good things to have when you're on day three of varyingly-responsive-to-meds migraine and decided against rescheduling that root canal. (OMGBONECONDUCTIONBRAINRATTLE. That is all.) Whether or not your current primary fandom is gloomily watching its show get strangled by the network.

Today we have Tanya's Solomon-sword decision about how to handle her blog for the last two eps. Because of course the wrinkle I forgot in my reply to cjmr's comment yesterday was that while the show is Canadian, Lifetime's American website streaming generates ad revenue for which no writer is getting paid. *sigh* Too bloody complicated, dammit. At this point, I'm thinking it's best to hold out on the last two until they air in Canada a few weeks down the road, and can be begged, borrowed or ahemmed from charitable souls there.

Failing that, there's always the compromise of doing iTunes through Firefox News, which will at least result in their commission being contributed to the Actors Fund.

Meanwhile, Denis McGrath's staff-writerly lament reminded me that the CHUM corporate shuffle split the assets from which the Canadian funding came between two different companies, so that's not looking so good either.

The Novocain is wearing off, literally and figuratively, and I am Grumpy Fangirl. My Postmodern Pollyanna duties will be subpar for a bit. Just so you know.

*sigh* Still, the day Ludo can't make me smile will be a Very Bad Day Indeed. "Sarah frieeeeeeeend." :-}

Oh, and...
Of course poor MiL was all excited because she found the listing on the cable at their snowbird digs when they arrived in FL earlier this week. Just in time to watch it once.

(Of course, there's also the fact that we only marathoned through "Love Hurts" while she was here, so if she watches it tonight she's going to be VERY confused...)

You're post-root canal and you're gaming tonight?

Of course, I had an abscess and did a fannish Supernatural marathon with celli anyway, so what do I know?

*hugs* I hope you feel better soon! I've already warned brainiacfive that I may beg off around 10 or 10:30 due to the Sinus Infection I Can No Longer Deny Is Incoming making me exist in an overmedicated haze right now.

I'm thinking tonight's knit-during-gaming project is going to be a pair of legwarmers. Nice and easy, with no complicated cabling logistics to work through, and the only stitch changes are going from single rib to stockinette stitch.

I'm working this afternoon. I can game tonight. :-) It's actually not that bad. (Although explaining why the client wouldn't be able to attach any of the assets on the investigation report I'm looking at might be beyond my capacity. My talking-creditors-out-of-quixotic-lawsuit-fu is at a low ebb.)

By 10 or 10:30, I will probably be a Zombified Lump of Pathetic.

Did I leave my rattail comb at your house last time? I think that's when it went *poof*, from when I was setting my wig.

Dude, I so hear you about things being beyond your mental capacity today. I was trying to remember my social security number for some paperwork, and I completely blanked. For, like, five minutes.

So at least I'll have company being a Zombified Lump of Pathetic?

Haven't seen the comb, but that doesn't mean it's not there.

I'm actually doing okay. I seem to be two for two in my lifetime on root canals not being the nightmare they always seem to be for other people. :: knocks on wood ::

"Ambrosius, if you don't turn around this instant, I shall never feed you again!" :-D (Yes, the movie is done, so I'm continuing the cheering-up with random quoteage...)

I haven't seen the movie in years, so I can't join you in the quotage, but so far, every single one makes me smile in recognition :-)

"You say that so often... I wonder what your basis for comparison is."

One of my favorite movies of all time.

Yes! That line will ever and always be the first thing that pops into my head in response to anything being declared "not fair." :-) And you just can't help wondering what Jareth's basis for comparison is...
