not bad.  
I have lounged. At 4:00 a.m. last night I gave up tossing and turning and took half an Ambien, then slept until noon. Then I thought about going to the gym. Then I lay in bed for four more hours. I napped on and off until 4:00 p.m., when my delivery pizza arrived. I ate half of it while watching TV. After that, I logged on and read my flist, including SGA commentary and stories. Now I'm going to go leave the apartment at last and have some cookies. Then watch some more TV.

Oh, and I had to go back to the office last night for two hours, because it turned out I couldn't do some time-sensitive work from home on dial-up. So my lazy Saturday rests smugly on a sense of accomplished virtue.

You're all green-pepper colored with envy, aren't you. There were peppers on my pizza.

After watching SGA last night I had a whole post bubbling in my brain, breathless squee punctuated by ambivalence. But now it's Saturday and I think that the window during which I could have formed words has possibly closed.

Just now I was watching "Guarding Tess." I hadn't seen that in years. It still cracks my shit up. And it has such a different and amusing relationship focus from run-of-the-mill movies that I get totally caught up even though it wouldn't normally be my thing. It's all just so intelligent and funny and good--and then turns out to have these angsty human elements. But good angst, like fan-fiction type angst, not stupid Hollywood crap "angst." It totally has that indefinable fan-fiction vibe. Well, it's probably definable, but again, it is Saturday and I am lazy and in pursuit of cookies.

This is totally random, but I wanted to tell you that because of your Jack/Vaughn stories I started to watch Alias. I even bought the Season 2 dvds, since I couldn't rent/borrow them anywhere.

Man, I love Jack. I adored him from the very beginning. When he had this little "I am not sure if you really know my daughter" conversation with Danny, I was sitting completely mesmerized in front of my tv.

But it's not just Jack; I love the whole show, although I have to say that so far I fail to see the appeal of Sark.

Anyway, the moment I finish my Season 2 dvds - Season 3 won't be published in Germany until October :-( - I will reread all your Alias fiction.

I LOVE your stories, no matter the fandom you're writing in.

Oh I love Guarding Tess. I went through a brief period of watching Nicholas Cage in other films because I had enjoyed it so much, but it turns out he is just dour and boring most of the time.

I envy you, but not pepper coloured because I don't like peppers. My envy is fresh and green and minty flavoured with just a hint of coconut.

The characters just make me so freaking happy, you know? :>)

He is a very very strange actor. I can't get a handle on him either. I do enjoy some of his wackier and more absurd roles: Raising Arizona, Con Air, Face/Off. National Treasure and The Rock were okay too; mainstream but okay. I need to watch Moonstruck again someday; I remember liking it.
