    Not good you're still unwell. But 'bad cold' is at least an improvement from your previous 'man flu'.

    And laundry's not to be sneezed at. Though, given your cold, it might be sneezed on.

    Yeah. Or arrested for having really stinky clothes. Which I suppose is something that could happen.

    Hey, 2012 is on! That's one of my favourite movies to snark at!

    Can they arrest you for stinking?

    I think I'll be calling in sick tomorrow, or it'll be patients getting sneezed on.

    But wouldn't that just involve turning a fire hose on you and flinging some soap at you? No need to arrest you at all. You'd be all clean and sweet smelling afterward.

    Re: 2012, I think I've identified why I love to hate this movie so much. It's the shitty way it treats the step-dad character. He's at least as heroic as John Cusack's shit dad, and clearly cares for the kids and they care for him, yet because he is not the biological parent his penalty is to be crushed to death in giant gears. And his step-kids show all signs of immediately forgetting about him, because he's never mentioned again, once shit dad has a chance to get back together with mum in the post-apocalyptic new world. (Spoilers if somehow you haven't seen this movie yet but want to.)

    7Mate's gone thematic scheduling tonight. 2012 is followed by 10,000BC.

    Reminds me of one night years ago when Channel 10 -- presumably intentionally -- scheduled Smallville, then Medium, then Big Love, then Supersize Me. I have no idea if I was the only person in the country who noticed the pattern, but I laughed.

    Sick day sounds like a fine idea. Even if you're not that sick. Chuck a sickie! It's an Aussie tradition.

    Ooh yeah a sickie is definitely on the cards.

    10,000 BC. I think I've seen that. I can't remember anything about it though. Do I have a terrible memory, or are all these movies just absolutely unmemorable?

    8% on Rotten Tomatoes. Yeah, I'll blame the movie.

    Seems fair. At 8%, it's either going to be unmemorable or really memorable.

    I haven't ended up writing or reading. Still noodling around AW seeing what I missed today. I couldn't browse on my phone because the battery was running down too quickly. Ironically, we were given a gift pack thingy which included a portable phone-charging battery thingamabob. Alas, it did not come pre-loaded with charge. Would've been handy this afternoon.

    I don't know. I'll have to ask the secret council.

    Woo-hoo! *fist-bumps Jay*

    I just got back from picking my mom up at the airport. We had planned to go to the art museum, not realizing today was free admission day and about 3 thousand people showed up. The lines wrapped so far around the buildings, weaving in and out, that no one seemed to know where the line ended. We just turned around and left. I'm disappointed. But we did stop for yummy Mexican food.

    Aw man! I'm sorry you weren't able to go the the museum with your Mom, Lil. At least you got a yummy dinner together!

    Yeah, that was very nice. She said she'll just have to come visit again to see the museum another time.
