I'm siiick.

I've been sick for about two weeks with a cold and this is the third time I've left work early. Ugh. I hate burning through my sick leave, even though I have plenty; I just like the idea of hoarding them to the point where I could take two straight months off work if I wanted to. And I think I'm just not getting better because everyone else around me is sick too, especially the childrens who don't know how to not cough and sneeze directly on other people. Pleh.

Now I am at home in sweatpants (cue Karl Lagerfeld: "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants" LOL) and watching The Princess Bride, the movie that still holds up even on one's thirty-ninth viewing.

Last weekend [livejournal.com profile] sarea_okelani and I went to see The King, a Korean movie about the 1% in politics in the 1990s -- a subsection of prosecutors who game the system so they can live in luxury. Though we were both impressed that it managed to make it all the way up here (and not even just LA and New York), and my current one true love Ryu Junyeol is beautiful and effective in it, it was, unlike The Princess Bride, not a great movie.

And here is why )

I've also watched the last series of Sherlock, finally. It was a slog )

Okay, so Steve Thompson has redeemed himself somewhat for the oozing pile of crap last year that was The Blind Banker. Sherlock 2x03 -- LOVED IT.

Other spoilery but not very coherent thoughts:

Just one more miracle... )

Why is S2 already over? Can S3 just start next week please?

As usual I'm horribly behind everybody with shows; just managed to watch the first ep of Sherlock a few days ago, and I LOVED it. Exciting, funny and charming, and while I don't usually pay a lot of attention to soundtracks -- at least, not to the point where I need to download the score from that cabbie chase scene immediately (link, anyone?) -- I think the music is delightful.

Episode 2, however. Ugh. )

Someone please tell me ep 3 gets much better?
