When Cameron Was In Egypt's Land...

Double bonus points to you if you get the title reference. Great movie. Anyhow, that's the scene that's been flashing through my head every time I try to peel myself out of bed for the past few days. So much for keeping resolutions when you get flattened by the cold of the century on the second day of the new year!

I probably shouldn't be posting when I can practically feel the little viruses dancing through my bloodstream, but I've got cabin fever, ya know? The cat doesn't make for very good conversation. Before leaving for work this morning, my husband set me up with a giant bowl of Turkish scrambled eggs (feed a cold!), Dayquil sinus tabs, and a full season of Suits. I'm only two episodes deep, but so far I'm liking it. There was a funny line about being someone's pony that I'd quote for you, but...pfft. My brain is mush.

Since I'm only allowed to watch four episodes, if I'm still alive later this afternoon, I'll probably be reading Graceling until my stamina gives out. I've also read Anna Dressed In Blood and Shine this past week, both very good reads. I wasn't expecting Shine to remind me so much of Winter's Bone. Or Anna to remind me of Nightmare on Elm Street, at least a little.

And, if you didn't get the title this. Then go watch the movie. Forget about Matthew Broderick, this is Alan Ruck at his finest!


  1. love that move! as soon as I saw your title, I smiled :) hope you feel better soon!

  2. Graceling's a really good book, I enjoyed it. I hope you feel better.

  3. Can you believe my husband has never seen that movie?! I can't believe it either.

  4. @Jessica: What I can't believe is that you have continued to allow him not to have seen it. You must not really love him.

  5. Let my Cameron go...
    Hope you feel better soon!
