Not very well, thank you

I'm sick of being sick. For the last three days, even though the sun has been shining, I've been cooped up indoors, shivering and shaking under my duvet, and subjected to one sneezing fit after another. I'm aching all over and I lack the energy to drag myself out of bed, but I'd better get over this wretched cold sharpish because Mum's taking the train to Berlin tonight to go on a well-deserved holiday. This leaves me on my own to care for my dad for the next two weeks; but it's alright - as far as I'm aware I only need to take him to two or three doctor's appointments in that time, go to the bank a couple of times and of course, make sure he's well-stocked on groceries. Problem is that I know someone who isn't going to be happy about my having to take time off work to do all this, and he's not going to let me take Special or Care Leave for it, but will insist on me taking up the time as holiday. Some holiday. Still, what am I moaning about - I have weeks of accrued holiday left this year! Wasting two or three days of it running around after Dad isn't going to make that much of a difference, really.

I missed House again yesterday, which means that out of a total of four episodes having been shown in what I have decided is going to be my latest fandom, I have now missed two. This does not bode well for the future.

I see the LJ Interest Meme is doing the rounds again on my flist, affording me the opportunity I've been waiting for to put up my version of it, done some weeks ago:

I'm mystified as to why Alan Rickman is showing off his underpants in that one picture; but apart from that, the whole thing's pretty harmless, I would say. I really need to get some kink in there some day.

Tim Roth!!! -- my first big crush as a married woman, the first thing i yahoo'd when the Net was new in my island. Tim Roth!!!

**yes, yahoo'd, when yahoo was just an indexing service and the founders of google was probably still in uni computer labs. the alan rickman shot is from the film Dogma in that scene where he is trying to prove that he's an angel, ergo the lack of genitals.

Yes, Tim Roth. You're a woman of excellent taste, and do you know what? So am I! ;-)

darn right we are! and you my virtual friend are a woman who likes men with big ... noses. alan rickman, tim roth, jm, depardieu. :-)

Well, you know that old saying: 'big noses, warm hands'...something like that, anyway. ;-)

Hee! Alan Rickman isn't showing off his underpants in that picture! It's a photo from the Kevin Smith film Dogma in which Rickman played the Voice of God - the Metatron - and he dropped trou to show that, like all angels, he had no sexual organs.

So you have a frontally-nekkid pic of Rickman in your collage. Too bad we're still missing out, darn it. [/naughty] ;)

Hope you feel better soon!

Clearly, I must get myself that film on DVD -- I thought I'd seen it but I can't have as I don't remember that scene at all!

Hmm. Get better soon!
Sep. 8th, 2006 08:00 pm (UTC)
Hmm? What hmm? Why the hmm?

Thanks for wishing me to get well, though!
Sep. 8th, 2006 08:41 pm (UTC)
Dunno, I can't remember now.

*hugs* I'm sorry you're not feeling well.
