I'll live. End of wank. ;)
Completely unrelated: pretty bad headache; worst one I've had all week, actually. Not only is everyone I know sick, but now my dog is sick--Lucky Dog has a fungus. Vladimir says he is feeling better, fortunately.
Randomly watched The Secret Garden with Sister Girl today. I liked that book as a kid but hadn't seen the movie (although I was much more into A Little Princess--haven't seen that movie all the way through, either). I was surprised to realize it was directed by Agnieska Holland--I really liked what she did with Washington Square, although I may be the only one. I did think Holland spent a little too much time building up to Mary settling in and meeting Colin, and not enough on the development of the kids' friendship and rehabilitation of the garden--the movie seemed to jump forward a little after we'd gotten past the gothic-novel-style buildup. I really liked the way the kids' friendship fluctuated in the book--the way Colin was jealous of Dickon, and how Mary would use that to light a fire under Colin's butt and get him out of bed. But I like Holland's style over all, and I ended up very much liking the girl who played Mary... who, oddly enough, will be playing Wendy in that Johnny Depp Neverland movie about J.M. Barrie that's coming out next year (not to be confused with Peter Pan coming out at Christmas).
