Various bullet points for today


  • We watched The Martian Child tonight, and I really need to drop David Gerrold a note telling him how much I enjoyed it. I should really just give him a call, but that man'll talk my ear off (which, come to think of it, isn't such a bad thing).

  • We also watched The Masseur last night, a queer-ish Filipino flick with lots of hot naked boys. Although it ended rather abruptly, I thought the way they tried to tell the story was pretty good. One of the few non-US gay films where I didn't want to snap the DVD in half when it was over (if I could even get through it all the way).

  • I've been watching more movies lately, which is odd.

  • Why does my cat demand love, then fuss when he gets it? Stoopid kitteh. Plus, he is such a klutz it is to laugh.

  • I made yummy teriyaki chicken last night, and tonight we had bacon and pepperjack cheese stuffed chicken with sweet potato fries. Yum!

  • I want to start a fan club of all the cartoon characters that only ever speak one word. So far we have Shnitzel, from Chowder (he only says, "Radda") and Coco, from Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends (she only says, "Coco"). There are more. Who are they?

  • I opened my Storm Hawks action figures today (Finn & Junko) and put them in compromising positions (as it should be).

  • Tomorrow: Taxes!

We don't care if he likes it, he gets it anyway. It's called LOVE, cat. Stop being cute and cuddly and fuzzy and maybe we'll let you go, but until then, NOM DA EARS!

Posh does that - loves to sit on our chest while we're sleeping, but always with her butt in our face. I think she's trying to tell us something, especially when she farts on Q.

If you want other non-US gay films, can I recommend some Canadian ones?

* Whole New Thing - beautiful picture about an androgynous boy homeschooled in Nova Scotia by his hippie parents, going to high school for the first time, and his crush on his teacher.
* The Hanging Garden - a young man returns to his small town in the Maritimes and confronts his family.
* Better than Chocolate - Girl out from under the wing of her somewhat controlling mother falls in love with a butch dyke, as Canada Customs interferes with the bookstore she works in.
* Lilies - prisoners in early 20th-century Quebec perform a play based on one's childhood (not seen but heard it's very good.)
* C.R.A.Z.Y. - boy grows up in a large family in the immediate aftermath of the Quiet Revolution; idolizes David Bowie, comes out. (ibid.)

Let me also add Ma Vie en Rose, from Belgium.

I should have specified - non-US, non-English movies. Most of the British and Canadian ones I've seen are fine, but every single French, German, Russian, Ukranian, etc. (including most Asian countries, save but a few minor exceptions) have been GOD AWFUL. I mean, I can appreciate foreign films, but for heaven's sake, these were just GOD AWFUL.

C.R.A.Z.Y., Lilies (Les feluettes) and Ma Vie en Rose are all French-language films.

Ah. Chances are I'll hate them, then, alas.

I sent David some of that crazy super-dark chocolate he likes by way of congratulations after we saw it in the theatre. I found that watching old tv shows while on the elliptical is a good way to get value out of our NetFlix account.

I just usually don't sit down and watch movies. I'm weird like that as I get older.

For your fan club, will you include all those annoying Pokemon?

Also, I liked the book, but I didn't watch Martian Child all the way through. (It was a little too much emotion-manipulation for me.)

We were also thinking Snarf, but he actually talked. Then there's Schmoo, and I know there were more in the 70's cartoon period.

And yes, the movie was schmaltzy, but I thought John and Joan were good together, as usual. Plus the little kid was quite talented.

Why does my cat demand love, then fuss when he gets it?

Some cat psychology: they're territorial animals (as opposed to dogs, who are pack animals) so when they come to you all lovey-dovey they're saying "hi! I am *letting* you share my space, r i not kewl! *rub rub rub*" But when they think you're invading *their* space, they get snippy because they've lost territory-granting rights.

all the cartoon characters that only ever speak one word

All the Pokemon can only say one word, which is their name. Although with different inflections.

I suppose there's also the fact that when cats rub up against you, they're actually using glands in their cheeks to mark you as theirs. Pretty slick, there, ya little furball.

That Bacon and cheese stuffed chicken sounds great. What's the recipe? :P

We got it at Wal*Mart, actually. They've got these great frozen "put it together yourself" dinners for like $6-8 that serves two nicely - stuffed chicken breats, alfredo and spinach, greek, etc. Mostly pasta and flavored chicken combos, but all quite tasty. :)
