I saw this meme on [ profile] farstepper's journal and thought, hell, I've already exposed you all to my fandom rambling and my waylaid sense of adult purpose -- why not make you privy to the minutia that goes on with my laptop? (I'm also waiting for an oven-baked pizza to be done, so I needed something else to pass the time.)

• Take a screen shot of your desktop.
• Take a screen shot of your media player (if you have one up).
• Take a screen shot of another program you have up.
• Pick a tab you have up and take a screen shot of it.

'Been watching a lot of movies lately. I watched True Lies for the first time the other day (that movie just gets progressively more unbelievable; by the time I got to the end I felt like I needed to watch Speed 2: Cruise Control for a sorely-needed dose of plausibility). I also watched Persuasion (the Sally Hawkins/Rupert Penry-Jones version from 2007) and barely caught myself before I turned into a Jane Austen fan. I then realized that I liked movies based on Jane Austen's books rather than the books themselves. Whew. Close one. But Rupert Penry-Jones? Wow. He's got this Paul Bettany-like thing going on (which is probably why I could easily see him slipping into the role of Pendergast: both men are fair-skinned, fair-haired, and have that sort of kinetic attractiveness to them that you can't really explain). I've still got Burke and Hare to watch (yes, that Burke and Hare) and an Alan Rickman double-punch (Something the Lord Made and Snow Cake), but I'll probably wait until the break to really let myself go and be lazy.

I'm feeling really good these days. The term is almost over and I am happy where I am -- and very lucky to be here.

Spring is in the air, too, which always crosses the creative wires in my head. Last night I played around with the idea of a Dark Underworld/Spider-Man (yes, that Spider-Man) crossover in which my Cate meets Norman Osborn in New York City to talk about what Oscorp and Audax can do together. I had this banter between them forming in my head, as clear as if it were being typed up on a screen: Osborn trying to control the voice of the Green Goblin while Cate attempts to hide the fact that she herself has a little bit of "the beast" in her.

...I really need to find more things to do with my free time.
