Well, here's to a complete day lost to someone never being on time. Anissa is just now leaving out to visit her friend, having slept late and spoiled our trip to the museum. No shopping today, no writing until tonight, and my damn job tried to call me in on the only day on my availability that says 'NO!'. I'm riding on four hours of sleep for nothing. Grrrr!
Well, that's not true. I couldn't have post LS earlier had I not been awake. One good thing in my day.
I think I'm going to go pout now, watch the Black Dahlia alone and sulk and crab into a pint of From Russia With Buzz B&J.
Stupid crappy day.
I will, though, do this meme before I go bury my sorrows.
5 FAVORITE MOVIES
1. Superman II: The Donner Cut-Oh, hush As if *any* of you are surprised.
2. Moulin Rouge! -I have to go with bisty on this one. Own it, love it, live it. Bawled my eyes out in theaters twice watching this one.
3. Lady In The Water-Might not have been everyone's cup of tea, but this film touched me so much and so deep. I'm not even sure where to start. God bless you, M. Night. *hugs*
4. V for Vendetta-OMFG! Another film that opened my eyes to the world around me from the moment I left the theater. I'm still in awe even now.
5. Bram Stoker's Dracula-Oldman, Ryder, Hopkins. Period film. Romantic. Scary as hell. Plenty of accents. Annie Lennox on the soundtrack as the only human voice. SOLD!
5 GUILTY PLEASURES
1. Xanadu-Musical. Gene Kelly. Olivia Newton-John. Muses. Stevie Nicks-meets-Greek-goddess fashion. And a roller disco. Classic. And I didn't even like disco!
2. Ghostbusters - Love it. My two biggest crush as a kid were Superman and Egon. *LOL* No wonder I'm so odd.
3. The Pirate Movie- Everyone stop snickering. I LOVED this movie growing up, only we had the ABC edited-for-television version. Christopher Atkins and Kristy MacNichol had pretty good voices. Loved the songs. I still have the soundtrack on my computer.
4. Dogma-I just love it. Any movie that has the guts to cast Alanis Morrisette as God, especially due to her answer to the Meaning of Life, is just wonderful in my book. And Alan Rickman as the Voice of God? Could you need more?
5. Sisters-One of Margot's earliest films, directed by Brian de Palma. So tense and complicated, it takes a while to get your mind around it. Just a wonderful thinking-man's thriller.
