Crash and Burned...

Life travels at you fast. Too fast for me sometimes.

I've had something of a cough for the past week & and half; due to allergies--sinuses draining always gives me a cough.

Well, despite my best efforts to keep the sinuses from draining my cough has gotten worse and worse, until today I feel it necessary to go to the doctor's office. I fear that I have a sinus infection at least.

Which kinds of bites, as me and the wife had planned on going to see the new Indiana Jones movie last night. Yet, I was too miserable to crawl from my comfortable chair long enough to do it. Plus, I didn't think the other people at the movie would have appreciated my hacking cough throughout Indiana's whip-play.

Which effectively means that there are just that many more movies that I feel the need to view soon. That list includes:

  • Indiana Jones
  • The Happening
  • Wall*E
And of course Hancock when it comes out next week.

I lack time so bad.

Then there's the next Star Wars novel that was released on a few days ago. I have to admit, I'm less than thrilled over the current crop of Star Wars novels. They lack that fantasy aspect which I enjoyed so much. Additionally, I'm... hesitant about the somewhat navel-gazing aspect of the Dark Times stories. I mean, we've been there, done that. We know what happens a few years down the line during the Original Trilogy (i.e. the best part of the franchise). Can't we get something new?

Oh well. Maybe it's the cold talking, but maybe I'll manage to make it through Jedi Twilight within the next week or so.
