I feel a bit Ill to-day.

Called in sick.

I hope it isn't Ebola, as that would be Most Inconvenient.

Spending my time: sleeping, hacking, sleeping, hacking, sleeping, hacking, sleeping
Prognosis: Horribly Sick
Outlook: Uncertain

In between bouts of sleeping and hacking, I did manage to watch Duel to the Death, which Amazon.com strongly advises me to purchase together with Magnificent Butcher.

I must certainly recommend Duel to the Death, as it is chock full of explosions and ninjas! Not only are there flying ninjas, ninjas hiding under sand and ninjas flying on the backs of kites-- but there are also exploding ninjas! Giant ninjas! Topless female ninjas!

In other words, a classic

Off to resume my current schedule of hacking and sleeping....

So sorry to hear that you are under the weather. A topless female ninja, now that sounds like my kind of movie.

I watched, hot off the presses, the new DVD of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid today. Just the tonic for you if you can get it on Netflix. Bob Dylan throws a mean knife and sings some nifty songs, and Kris Kristofferson kindly lets a deputy "keep the change".

Let me know if you would like for me to bring by some chicken soup, since I doubt that you are up to cooking.

Hope you feel better soon. I can recommend MTV Cribs marathons for the flu... but your mileage may vary.

While you're sleeping, may your health come back and your dreams be beautiful.

And while you're hacking, why don't you make yourself useful and see if you can get into that NSA database?

Off you go then. Get some rest.

May your dreams be chock full of exploding topless ninjas......and no hacking.

My Dear Professor: I am definitely adding that flick to my list! And I took your suggestion for chicken soup too! Make sure you take your vitamins; it seems that everyone around here is ill these days.

rurality: hmmm... I usually go for ninja or kung fu flicks myself, but...

larry: heh heh heh. you funny thing you :)

rainypete: I am feeling better already!

I could've sworn I had Magnificent Butcher on my DVD shelf too somewhere. One day I will look into these exploding ninjas.
Sorry to hear you're sick but most amusing is that as I've been playing blog catch-up and parsing your recent posts, after seeing a lot of your so-called "lazy" entries I thought, "why L is languishing with her blogging much as I in this new year" and lo, the title of this very post! I suppose that's the 18th century me writing all of that nonsense above.

I read the reviews on those movies at Amazon. I'm sure they are funnier than the actual movies..

Maybe it's Salmonella from all that meat you were handling whilst making your collages.

Feel better soon. Your complexion is dreadful and those tambourines on your head are most disturbing.

Get well, and drink lots of chicken soup. Unless you're suffering from Asian flue on account of having drank a bowl of chicken soup in the first place. Then forget my advice.

I must seek out that Ninja movie - sounds good.

As to the sleeping and hacking, I hope you feel better soon and are taking it easy.

Love that photo and happy new year.

Eat some chicken lemon soup.
Read another Hunter Thompson book.
I see you liked 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,' so did I. I have read all of his 'Hell's Angels' and parts of a lot of the others.
Also read some of his articles in Rolling Stones and saved a lot more. Look on the Web for these.
Guess I got caught lurking. I thought you needed my wishes.

Happy&Blue: Duel to the Death was actually quite good. It was also just ever so slightly bad, but only in a Terribly Good way

Lisa: thanks a lot! Your comment made me laugh so hard I started coughing again! hee hee

mariana: oh no! too late!

mark: it was most excellent. I feel that it must have restorative powers

LLcoffee: thank you m'dear and I do recommend the movie...

Jim: hello there and thank you... and I agree that Hunter S. Thompson was indeed a Genius, a Saint and a Visionary (at least, I'm sure that's what you meant to add but then forgot). I have read and re-read Fear and Loathing in Las vegas so many times... but giggle insanely every time

happy&Blue: yes, I am... still sleeping a lot though. I hope you don't get sick too-- I know it's cold up there! By the way, I nominated your blog for one of those bloggies things (blog awards). Not sure how many nominations you need to get in though
