Viking Spongebob

(no subject)

My sleep schedule sucks. For the past week, I've been going to bed about midnight and then getting up at 3 or 4. Last night, I couldn't get to sleep until after 3! I take naps during the day, from about ten minutes to an hour or so, and that seems to keep me going. Perhaps I should just stay up and g to bed at a reasonable hour...nah, that makes too much sense :)

Went to "Live free or Die hard" yesterday. I love bruce to begin with, and I still think the original "Die Hard" is the best comic movie ever (it's an origin; in 4 color, he'd have been in costume and cape for the other movies). In my mind's eye, I saw the comic book adaptation by Jack Kirby or frank Miller. But I digress...

The film was funny, believable in an unbelievable way and well done. My wife will never see it because violence against innocents disturbs her; if you realize that this is fiction, try to see it in the theaters. Almost no CGI; all the effects were physical, which adds an extra umph. It catches up on MacLane's life, and it certainly leaves things open both for prequels or sequels. My favorite line: the guy who's been helping MacLane meets his daughter. She says something caustic, and the guy sez, "Wow. you sound just like him with hair..."

In other worlds, my new titles are at the printer, and I've bought a new laminator (since my old one isn't being carried in town, and getting supplies has been a bitch). I need to bring stuff down from the attic, and I guess I should do that before it gets too hot. But the breeze is soooo nice right now...

ADDED: Hey. It's *hot* in the attic. So hot that it seems cool when I come back downstairs. Why didn't anyone tell me about that. Got more to move down. Then a shower...

Nothing philosophical right now. But it's coming...
