  102 degrees

I drug my sorry ass home Monday night with the sniffles, a sore throat and a temperature of 102 degrees. I've been cooped up in the house for the last two days trying to feel human again. I've had a reprieve from Purgatory for two days, but I'll probably be back to work by Friday morning.

Since then, I have been laying in bed with my remote control, sleeping or watching my old DVD's and VHS tapes. Here's what I've been watching.

1984-the movie. Excellent, it really looks like the book.

True Stories-The Talking Heads made this back in the 80's. It's a story about a week in the life of Virgil,TX with music videos in it. It's surreal, it's sweet and its funny. John Goodman was in this before he became a star. What's really cool is that its one of those movies filled with non-beautiful people in it-so it's almost like watching your neighbors doing Karoke. Also, seeing David Byrne in a Stetson and Bolo-Tie driving a Red K-Car convertible is just too funny.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. I love this movie. Jack Nicholson is perfect. It really has a lot to say about the desire of society to control us and how each of us is crazy in our own way.

Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail-What can you say about this? It appeals to the 13 year-old boy in all of us-crude, rude, silly and vulgar. A masterpiece-especially the bit about the Knights that say NEE! and the Shrubbery. I just lay there giggling when Roger the Shrubber does his little speech. Then there's the killer rabbit. I think I almost wet myself from laughter the first time I saw that bit.

Slingblade-I'm not sure how to describe this movie. It is one of those movies that really touches me. It has love, hatred, redemption, kindness and cruelty. You could write a thousands essays on this movie. Its about so many different things.

Maybe I'll have something about the call center by Friday.

Thanks for reading,
