Dudes. Sweet.

So. Quite a snowstorm, eh, everybody? Sadly, I'm not really in a good shape to go out and enjoy the weather. I think I somehow jinxed myself in my last entry when I said I was on the road to recovery, because I seem to have had some kind of sickness relapse. Or...less a relapse than just another lateral move. The Symptom Train continues on its route, I guess, this time apparently making a stop (and having a bit of a layover, it seems) firmly in my sinuses. Though irritating, it thankfully does seem to mean I'm getting my throat back, so...that's good news. As per usual, both laziness and mucus abound.

I think what really did me in was my full shifts of work over the weekend. Friday night was so-so; I was under the weather a bit, you might say, but I made it through with a little help from Tylenol. Saturday was terrible; I was a total wreck. I tried both days to get out of work early, sale. It's nice that things are busy enough that I'm needed; it's a good sign for business and my continued employment. But it was a drag trying to make it through the night with a minimum of coughing all over people. I was happy to put the weekend shifts behind me, and even more happy to now have nothing to do but sit at home and recover. Again.

I'm happy to report that the video game movie project has kicked off, and how! The first movie in the lineup was Super Mario Bros. And, frankly, I don't know what people are talking about; that movie was hot. Sure, it had nothing to do with the video game, but it was a fun enough ride in its own right. I was quite pleasantly surprised. Mario and Luigi were played respectively by Bob Hoskins (who to me will always be that guy from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?) and John Leguizamo. The main villain was played by Dennis Hopper, and when Dennis Hopper shows up, then you know something special is going down. In any case, I know it's too much to hope for, but here's to the rest of the video game movie project turning up such enjoyable results. Nah...probably not; next up: Street Fighter.

Oh, and while we're on the topic: one movie that so far managed to slip through the cracks: Double Dragon. Somewhere in the disused back corners of my mind I was aware that this movie got made. Turns out it's not as easy as you might think to get a copy of it on DVD these days. Who knew? ;)
