    @flecky bahahahaha

    Me, I have successfully lost half of the weight that I gained over the holidays and while on my trip to Amerika. Five more pounds and then I'll feel a little more like normal and can go on losing the rest of it.

    I've also been having fun flipping through Appetite for Reduction and picking out some incredibly tasty recipes for my dinners.

    Wow, I am totally going to order that book! A book of foods for PCOS on a budget of both money and time?! AWESOME!

    The best thing that has happened to me today is finding David Lynch's "Hotel Room" on youtube. The one with Crispin Glover and Alicia Witt (52:44) is so fucking amazing it's criminal. Get yourself in the zone and watch it.

    @Rae, I can't recommend this book enough. So many damn good recipes (my favorite being the Curried Scrambled Tofu which is now my brunch specialty). Sometimes it can get a bit ingredient heavy (1tsp of a spice that can be rather expensive), but the recipes can easily be tweaked.

    And hooray for full movies on youtube! I found Plan 9 From Outer Space on there and enjoyed the hell out of it last night!

    I'm late to the party (or I would be if a party was allowed to officially start before I got there - they aren't), but must still say @Argos wins the vile hugging thread for January. Congrats m'am!

    I've been promoted at work (in the "we don't pay you any more, though we expect more out of you, but perhaps may decide that all this extra work is a reason to pay you more at some point in the future. Or not." sort of way). Next week I'm going to some management training all week because I'm leading a team now.

    Cheers all!

    @Rachael:Excellent.You've found me something to view tonight.I love the Lynch and some of his films are my favourites-ever.Eraserhead takes me back to a time when it wasn't fashionable to be weird and,because the interweb only existed in a secret bunker beneath the FBI's main field office,there wasn't all the insanitus for the kids to devour like there is now.The bar/club scene from Twin Peaks:Fire Walk With Me;when you can't hear what the hell anyone is saying because of the rocking guitar and bass from the live band as they pass around the spiked bottles of beer.Love that shit.

    And yeah,i'll admit it-The Elephant Man has moved me to tears on a few occasions.In a good sort of way.
    Blue Velvet has moved me to mass murder.In a bad sort of way.

    @oldhat:Marvelous.You watched Plan 9 From Outer Space!Isn't it just freakin' amazing?!I've not seen that beauty for years.The special FX-wow!They put toss like all this new CGI to shame.At times i really thought i was watching actual footage of UFO sightings as it just seemed so real.And Bela's performance...blinding!

    Yep...they don't make 'em like they used to.Everyone has to be able to say they've seen Plan 9 or life just aint worth living.Ha!

    If your after a bit of weird check out The Secret Adventures of Tom Thumb.It's a bolox(seriously)brothers film.It's quirk-city and if you enjoy seeing animated,latex creatures doing strange stuff then you could do worse.Good shit.

    @icelandbob:That's the first thing i've heard about the MCM comics expo this year.Another thing i've never been to but i intend to rectify that...especially if our benefactors Mr Ellis and Mr Spurrier are gonna be in the house.If anyone else is going it would be nice to know...so i don't run up to you and embarrass you in public.I seem to be good at that.I said hi to Warren at the screening of his film last november in London.I'm still happy from it in a stalkerish sort of way.

    Well, finally got all my books I need for classes this semester, got my assignments all done--starting to get back into the swing of academics after almost a year of absence.

    This song came on the radio yesterday, and I realized...



    (blasting this song is quite cathartic)

    @Argos I'd totally help you see the innards of Detroit, Michigan, if y'all so came this way(!) (Chicago is a 3 hour train ride, and Canada's right there, too...!)

    @Rachael:I enjoyed the Lynch show you put up last night.Good on you.When did it come out...1993? I really can't believe i'd not seen it.If you ever find more gems PLEASE put them up here.I'm a bit of a technophobe,truth be told,and i rarely find anything over 20 odd minutes to watch on YouTube.

    The ex used to do all the internet stuff for me like downloads of films and TV stuff.We fell out-as is usually the case-when i decided to clean up my act.When my legs gave way last year was when i found out how shallow she could be.People can be so fickle.My pins have been quite a bit better recently and when she saw me bouncing around the high street the other week she suddenly seemed interested again.Soz to have a moan-i'm not being bitter about it;just realistic.

    Once again,i hope you've sorted out the bedbugs.Weird,when i read your posts about them i'd just watched BUG again-yet another crazy film i really love.Ashley Judd screaming out something like "I'm the queen bug.I'm the mother queen bug!"

    Music.Cathartic.Don't know what i'd do without it...

    @Argos: I live in one of the prettiest parts of Wisconsin! (Seriously. You would not believe the tourists in the summer. Among other things.) And maybe by then I can captain a boat sufficiently well to take y'all to the islands.

    @Argos - Can you imagine the online "photo album" with stories and pictures you could create with this honeymoon road trip? If you make it through the Pacific Northwest, I would be more than honored to host you and your fella. So much good beer up here that your liver will hate you and, similar to trini's offer, it's glorious here in the summer and we can offer hiking, camping and chill kayak trips.

    @argos we are in PA nothing to see here much, have a kick ass house with crash space. We have plenty of great places to eat but I make a killer boeuf bourguignon heh.
