no-track mind

I tried to write some smut, a nice little Riley/Spike PWP that I figured could serve as a holiday gift to readers, and an hour later I was hip-deep in the economic crisis of the midwestern farmer and the evils of farm subsidies and the theory of soybean-corn crop rotation. Arghhhhhhh!

When porn research goes tragically wrong. Next on "Geraldo."

It'd be cool if I had multiple personalities and one of them was an Iowa farm boy.

Went to see "Lost in Translation" with sherrold tonight. Slow movie, self-indulgent at times, especially as it waned, but parts were funny as hell. I'm always thrilled when Bill Murray gets a chance to show his stuff.

My Christmas rental flicks were less successful. I rented "Freaky Friday" to rewatch and decided it's a movie that works only once. My other rental was "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." As they say: two hours of my life I can never get back that I could have spent picking lint from my carpet or worrying at my back tooth or staring at the gently moving cobweb on my ceiling as I listened to "Lady Marmalade" for the three-hundredth time and imagined, with ineffectual ennui, Spike straddling Riley. (My fantasies are just not cooperating lately.)

The only good thing about TLoEG was the guy who played Dorian Gray, who I suppose, if I'm being honest, redeemed those two hours enough to keep me from throwing the rental tape into the bay instead of returning it and then paying Hollywood Video for its loss, all as a service to humanity, in order to keep fewer members of the viewing public from the temptation of trying to watch it. In short, he was pretty. But I really wish they'd had the next "Alias" DVD in stock.

I thought I'd follow the trend--baaaa! baaaaa!--and post some Secret Slasha and Yuletide recs.
