Oh, and something I should have mentioned about "The Universe" show with the "dumb" astronomers: I was writing pretty flippantly about people who are way smarter than I can ever expect to be. I was in a mischievous mood, what can I say--and I don't get those moods a lot. My impression of the astronomers was colored, however, by the fact that one of them even said at one point that he was "embarrassed" that the scientific community had believed something or other (I can't recall what) back in the fairly-recent day. Did anyone see this? Can you remember what he was talking about?
Meanwhile, I've been feeling really good the last couple of days, and I think it's because I'm back on my medication. When I was down with the norovirus, I didn't take my antidepressants for about five days--first, because I couldn't keep them down, and second, because taking them on an empty stomach is a bad idea, or at least it always has been for me. I'd wanted to stop taking them early in the afternoon and move them to mid-morning, so this gave me an opportunity to retrain myself. I'm sure there were side effects (usually I get lightheaded and a feverish feeling), but I was so miserable with the flu that I clearly didn't notice them at all, so in a way, it was ideal. So I've been feeling pretty good now that I'm back on them.

Strike tarnishes Globes' glamour; Writers offer to give NBC's Ben Silverman the prom of his dreams; Miss The Golden Globes Song? We’ve Got ‘Gimme Globes’ With Some Help From Britney. The funny thing is, I actually sat there last week wondering which current-ish pop song they would have butchered had the show aired as usual. I actually remembered this and wasted thought on it.

Is Ang Lee a Tyrant on Film Sets? Aww--they liked him on the Sense and Sensibility set, right? I have Emma Thompson's set diary that she published, and Lee seems kind of overly sensitive at times, but surely they all got along, right? "This is the man Hugh Grant dubbed 'Fang Lee.' " Oh.
