the random post including fever news, silent and not silent movies and other stuff  
1. So it looks like they figured out what's wrong with me. Well, okay, I still have to do another round of blood tests but looks like it's either gastritis or something concerning the esophagus which I can't find the right expression for but which shouldn't be too bad in either case. *headdesk* Though at least it looks like he found some way to get the fever down which should happen within the week. And I hope because I've lost too much time over this already.

2. And of course point 1 means other blood tests on Monday. I swear I had more blood tests in the last two months than in all of my life.

3. I wish my cousin realized I do not like my grandmother's village. Because seriously, inviting me to a facebook group for 'lovers' of said place? *headdesk* I mean, reading the stuff they post there is kind of fun even if they're all completely crazy (seriously, a bar changes name and it's 'the end of an epic'? Oh well..), but seriously. She knows I barely stand the place two weeks each year. *sigh*

4. /small politics corner

Some idiots in the current government proposed to make immigrates pay a tax on their residence permit. And on the VAT number. *headdesk* I'm not even commenting on that anymore. /end

5. Last round of books/cds shopping: I bought myself Gaiman's Anansi Boys, the Brokeback Mountain soundtrack (which hell, it's so good. Well, I had some stuff from it, but not the entire cd and mm, I love it) and another couple of records which were ridiculously discounted. I clearly need to be kept out of bookshops which sell records, too.

6. Movies talking since I've watches some. The Man Who Laughs -> what a good film. I can't believe I had bought it six months ago and waited all this time to watch it. I also re-watched Some Like It Hot (which was the clear winner in the AU fic I should write) which is always awesome even if it was the fifth time, Misery which has to be one of the best King transpositions even if they kind of cut the most gruesome stuff if I remember well from the book. I've also watched Full Monty mainly because of something I'm writing. I had started it years ago and never finished it, but it was way better than I remembered. It was a lot of fun, I appreciated the gay couple even if it was barely shown and it gave me a couple ideas for said fic I needed it for.

7. I think it's pretty much all for now. I'll be off studying some and writing crack after I'm done.

Full Monty...whatever for???? *Grins*

Misery is such a good movie. I own it. I love Kathy Bates. I saw PS I Love You last night which not my type of movies but because I had such low expectation, I enjoyed it, mainly because of Kathy Bates and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Sigh, family and facebook groups - not a good combination.

I'm glad the doctors finally have an idea about your illness. Hey, Elliot had gastritis. Sorry, you probably didn't need to know this.

I am eagerly awaiting the results of your crack writing.

Can't you just imagine? ;) ;) *grins again*

Oh, I really enjoyed P.S. I Love You. Not exactly my kind of movie either but a) I love Hilary Swank since Million Dollar Baby and I always like seeing her somewhere and b) any movie where there's Kathy Bates and Jeffrey Dean Morgan being naked and playing Steve Earle on the guitar is definitely ok with me. I totally love Kathy Bates, too. She's such a good actress, and Misery was incredibly well done. Especially considering how bad are usually movies from King.

Sigh, family and facebook groups - not a good combination.

Indeed. *sigh*

Ha, I think I remembered. ;) He said gastritis first and then leaned towards the other thing but anyway I just hope he figures out for good. And that I'm done with blood tests after.

The crack writing results shall arrive soon. ;)

That was a Steve Earle song! How perfect! I like Hilary Swank too. It was a Swank double bill last night because I also watched parts of Iron Jawed Angels to find a clip about suffrage for my class on Monday. Plus seeing James Marsters, Spike on Buffy, speak in his golly gee real American accent was amusing.

Yes it was! It was actually when I started the Earle downloading of doom so I'm even more glad that I watched that movie. And Swank double bill is always awesome, especially when you also have something else worth watching.

I remember examining the Full Monty in sociology...not sure why we did it.

I went to a bookshop in Rome...the books in English were so expensive.
the female ghost of tom joad: brokeback mountain jack/ennisjanie_tangerine on January 10th, 2009 06:25 pm (UTC)
Uhm, I think I know which one it was... or well, there are two English bookshops in reachable places so I can imagine. And yeah, they are indeed expensive, but it's usually three or four euros of difference and considering that English editions are usually better it's still worth the higher price. *sigh* But they are indeed expensive.

I went into one that was near a Versace boutique. That one was okish but then I went into one near Repubblica and the classics were like £6.50 and they were editions I bought from bookshops in England for £1.50.

Even at the prices, it was hard to resist buying books.
the female ghost of tom joad: booksjanie_tangerine on January 10th, 2009 07:27 pm (UTC)
Mh, the two I was thinking about. Repubblica sometimes has the classics at that price but once in a blue moon when they get very cheap editions. And it sucks because is the one which is nearer so the one I go to most. That other one is better though.

I'm glad you're finally getting answers! xxx And I'm intrigued as to your need to watch Full Monty ;)

Well, I only write one fandom so you do the maths.. ;) ;)

And yeah, I kind of am, too. Finally!

*rubs hands together* I shall await with eager eyes to see what comes out of that ;)

Yeah, I'm pretty glad, too. Two months are kind of too much. ;) ♥

Yeah, that's definitely good. I mean, two months was getting tiring. ;) I just hope it's over soon, at least the fever. ♥

there is nothing worse than being ill and know knowing what the fuck it is. I'm glad that you are finally getting answers.

I never saw "some like it hot," which could explain why I voted for the corpse bride! lol! I'm curious of your adaptations (Full Monty? that I know, awesome!)
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/sawyer ♥janie_tangerine on January 11th, 2009 09:25 am (UTC)
Yeah, THAT exactly. I mean, two months of running that half-fever or whatever it is were getting too much, ;)

Ha, well, I'll arrive on the corpse bride, too, but I'd definitely recommend Some Like It Hot. ;) It's awesome. It has crossdressing, good music, Marilyn, some half/canon slash and it's just too good for this world. And yeaaah, Full Monty.. *cough*

I'm so sorry you're having to go through so much to get well. :( I'm thinking good thoughts for ya, I really hope you start to get better!!
the female ghost of tom joad: glomping!janie_tangerine on January 11th, 2009 09:25 am (UTC)
At least now they know, right? Thanks, I really hope it's over soon. *hugs*

This is why I haven't added any of my family as friends on Facebook (even though I know some of them are on there). Don't really want spam like that.

It's ages since I saw Full Monty - must get round to watching it again.

And good to hear you're finally getting some answers!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost desmond GUHjanie_tangerine on January 12th, 2009 10:00 pm (UTC)
The point is that I've also been added by her group of local friends with whom I talked... what, twice in two years? *sigh*

Full Monty is good. Re-watching is good. ;)

And thanks! Yeah, at least.
