I wanted something by myself for some reason. Felt anti-social. So I snuck off to see Stardust. Got back home in time to pack for Faire this weekend and visiting the Stronghold tonight on my way down.

It's a nice little film.

“We always knew you was a whoopsie”

Gotta be one of my favorite lines.

Friday- Went to the movie theater and saw The Illusionist. Oh Gods... this is an incredible film. Acting is excellent. Story is beautiful. Effects are mind-boggling. Accents, costumes, and sets are perfect.

Saturday- Good baby shower for [ profile] anangelssilence.

Saturday Night- Got to finally watch Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, and even finished it.

Sunday- Had a nice day, and finally got to meet [ profile] sagefemme11.

Now... called in sick from work with some sort of stomach bug that has me running to the bathroom very frequently. [ profile] gryphon_m and [ profile] purpura... I'm not sure if this is exactly what you had/have... since I don't know if you had frequent bathroom trips or not.

from V for Vendetta

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

Other neat quotes/passages from the movie

Evey Hammond: My father once told me that artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use lies to cover the truth up.

Evey Hammond: Does it have a happy ending?
V: As only celluloid can deliver.

Creedy: Die! Why won't you die?
V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. There is an idea, Mr. Creedy - and ideas are bulletproof.

Delia Surridge: Are you going to kill me now?
V: I killed you ten minutes ago while you slept.
Delia Surridge: Will there be pain?
V: No.
Delia Surridge: Thank you. Is it meaningless to apologize?
V: Never.
Delia Surridge: I'm so sorry.

V: Would you like to dance?
Evey Hammond: Now?! On the eve of your revolution?
V: A revolution without a revolution not worth having!

Finch: If our own government was responsible for the deaths of almost a hundred thousand people... would you really want to know?

V: It is to Madame Justice I dedicate this concerto.

V: Fear became the ultimate tool of this government.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

... I just ate a banana and hope to keep it down or in for longer than a half hour.

I went to the store and picked up some stuff- kaopectate and the Gerber version of Pediolyte (or however it is spelled). The drink stuff tastes like hell, and it's supposed to be the "New Great Tast(ing)" apple flavor.

I feel like hell in general. It isn't so bad as long as I sit pretty still. Going to the store was bad/interesting. I was able to hold everything in until I got home though. Walking in the store was the greatest pain that I had felt since last night.

I'm watching The Last Samurai now. I hadn't seen it before and... wow. It's almost amusing the differance.. how idiotic Tom Cruise can be as a person and how moving he can be in role.

And Watanabe... gods, he's incredible.
