Peace to all

I hope that everyone is enjoying the holidays. I am catching up on some much-needed sleep.

Right now I'm watching Scarface on A&E right now. I prefer it to the Christmas schlock which has been polluting the tv channels of late. However, A&E is one of those channels that irritatingly blocks out 'bad' language. In Scarface this equates to about half the dialogue in scenes. More to the point, all the violence is in there so give me a break - we can show the kiddies some guy being beat up and then hanged from a helicopter, but god forbid we hear the word 'fuck'.

Sleeping sickness

Between my week off and my first week back at work I've been quite productive during the week, and paying for it at the week-end. As in, I cannot stay awake. This used to happen to me as a student though - around February each year I would sleep for about 3 days straight. Today I got up with the dog, but ended up sleeping for another hour at eleven, and then another four hours at 2pm. I only dragged my ass out of bed because we are having TM's sister over for dinner tonight.

I definitely wasn't pregnant as a student, so it must just be something about my system. I wouldn't mind so much except my dreams have become vivid, memorable, and quite horrific.

Highlight of the week-end was Friday where TM and I went and saw Blade Runner on a 70mm print. What a phenomenal movie.

Oh, and the neighbour was back at it last night. This time TM went up and pounded on his door and was greeted with something along the lines of, "Touch my door again and I'll fucking kill you you homo". Lovely. The cops came this time though so we'll see if that makes a difference.
