I'm working from home for the second day in a row, as I've got a pounding headache that won't quit and I keep browning out. Possibly I should eat something. I've had a number of calls to make and emails to respond to, so I'm actually as busy as I would be at work, but I'm getting to do it in my pajamas, sort of sprawled on my sofa.
Last night, after I turned off the computer, having finally handed over a fairly terrible draft of my picfor1000 story to the long-suffering musesfool, I watched the Knightley/McFayden Pride & Prejudice, which I think was the only Austen adaptation of note that I hadn't yet seen - no, wait, Kate Beckinsale played Emma, right? Still need to see that, I guess. Man, did they get a lot wrong! Keira Knightley's expressions needed variety and Matthew McFayden's chest hair needed to be put away, but still . . . it's Pride & Prejudice, and I find it hard to turn off Austen characters. One thing I did find interesting was that Mrs. Bennet was sort of the energetic angel of the family - loud and obnoxious, sure, but really hustling to make sure she did everything she could for her girls.
In other media news, I'm now booked to see Seminar (Alan Rickman!) and War Horse (puppetry!) in the near future.
One last reminder before I shut up about it: sign-ups for sherlock_remix are ending tomorrow. If you're an author, an artist, and/or a beta, come and play!
