I'm sad because my family just can't seem to get ahead of things. It looked like we were going to see the light. My husband got a new job (driving school buses) and I picked up a part time job in the evenings. I had a whole bunch of bills pegged to catch up on with the new money flow. And then in a freak accident on Tuesday night my husband slipped opening the window in our bedroom and put his hand through it. He's stitched up but he has to see a specialist to repair the tendon he ripped. Now he can't drive until it's healed. Luckily my new part time job is keeping us afloat. He's on happy pills and can't use his right hand. So I've been running ragged trying to work both jobs and take care of the kid and him.

Ouch!

I'm sad because our lives are so chaotic lately and all I can think of is that we might have to move to a new city quickly out of the blue. That makes it impossible for me to enjoy anything I do since every item I create is one item more that has to be moved and everything I buy to make myself happy rather makes me feel bad since it addes to the stash. I can't find enjoyment in anything and I can't sleep well either because there's so much going on and I just feel overrun.

And I'm sad because I wasted 2 hours yesterday watching Coppola's "Bram Stoker's Dracula". In my own, totally personal opinion, that was one of the worst movies of all times. And I saw a terribly bad, shitty "Lovecraft story" movie right before that which would have made Lovecraft cry, so that I liked Dracula even less was quite a shock.

That movie is one of the worst interpretations of Dracula ever. Why on earth would you cast a dead fish (Winnona Ryder) and a 2x4 (Keaunna Reeves) in the leading roles? They've got about three facial expressions between the two of them. It's worth it to watch though, because Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins know they're making a terrible movie, and ham it up. Their performances are wonderful.

Don't feel bad taking a couple of hours of me time. It's what keeps you sane.

Nope, for me sadly it wasn't worth watching sodomy rape p*rn combined with an utterly unbelievable "love" story between two horny freaks instead of the horror movie I expected. Oldman and his role both disgusted me and I've never seen a sillier VanHelsing. For me Reeves was the slightest problem of that movie - at least he blends into the wall.
Love my German Dracula audio drama - it's a hundred times better and true to the book. Especially Mina was such a fantastic character in that one, not a slut like all the other women in that movie.
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, with Robert de Niro and Kenneth Brannagh, had its silly moments too but it was much more touching and more true to the book. I had expected the same from Dracula, silly me. Lesson learned: Never believe something is true to a book just because it carries the author's name. Should have learned that from all the terrible "Lovecraft" movies already, actually.

What's worse, I slept terribly due to that movie for two nights in a row now and don't want to be touched anymore. So that's my sadness for today, more headache due to lack of sleep.

I'm sad because Sailor Moon is on tv again (after over 10 years!) but the channel was replaced by another one in my region and thus is out of reach for me.
They also finally released the series on dvd but Germany is the only country in Europe where they cost twice as much as elsewhere AND they didn't update the episodes. The dvds come with the old German version in poor tape quality and with the remastered version in Japanese.
So no Sailor Moon for me unless the dvds get cheaper in some years. :(
(I refuse to pay 55,- Euro for HALF a season! Paid 22,- for a WHOLE brandnew season of Downton Abbey and only slightly more for Big Bang Theory and Bones! 55,-, anime has just crazy prices over here. *shakes head*)

Wait, is this the old series or did they finally start airing the new one? I've been waiting for that for two years but they keep pushing it back. It's enough to make you tear your hair out.

Don't know anything about the new series except for one comment by Lirael or you a long while ago.
I'm talking about the old series which was never available on dvd over here and wasn't shown on tv for a long time because the license holder demanded outrageous fees. It was digitally remastered in Japan a while ago.
Actually I'm mostly interested in the first season. That one was good, then it went downhill. Hubbie and me stopped watching when it got just too annoying (sometime before the Sailor Stars appeared). I guess I'll put up a request in the news - maybe someone records it on VIVA and is willing to make me a copy. Don't have much hope though. -_-

I'm sad because...

- I fell down on my way to the doctor today and sprained my ankle. Now I sit here with an ice pack and wait for the swelling to get better but it's hard to sit at my desk.

- although my back has several deformities and they even found that I once had a hemiated disc (which was neither diagnosed nor treated) the doctors say I'm all right. Which means I'll get no help with my hurting back and neck. They suggested doing exercise to strengthen my muscles.

- the pills I bought for a slight chance to ease my tinnitus actually made it worse. I'm so sick of having headaches every day and of running into walls (or falling down, as today!) due to being dizzy. Got an appointment to check it out on Thursday.

- my mainboard must be damaged since my computer spontaneously freezes every now and then.
