A little off-kilter

I am completely confused as to what day of the week it is--I keep thinking it's Monday, because my mother took off work yesterday, and usually if she's home on a weekday, it's a Friday holiday of some kind. So when everyone went to work today--clearly, it's Monday, right?

Sadly, the reason she was home is because she hurt her knee two weeks ago--just stepping down off a curb in high heels, she said, nothing big--but it not only hurts two weeks later, the pain is getting worse. And she talked to a friend who's married to a something-or-other, I don't know, and this friend has suggested that she has torn her meniscus, which will not heal on its own. So FINALLY, after two weeks of me bugging her to no avail, she's going to try to get in to see the doctor, and if that's what it is, she'll have to have surgery. She took yesterday off just to give it time to rest; God knows when the doctor will be able to see her. Of course, the last time she had knee surgery, we caught her up and mopping the kitchen floor that afternoon, so.

Meanwhile, I'm still a little dizzy and chilly-flashy from the medication adjustment, but I already feel tons more alert. I'm also a little disorganized--like before I wasn't alert enough to concentrate, but now I'm too alert. Hm. I think it'll even out.

I say we have some linkspam.

Divorce attorney says Dennis Hopper is dying; Ailing Dennis Hopper to get star. 

So... I don't really have a segue from that.

Carey Mulligan on My Fair Lady, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and All Her Rumored Projects, in which Mulligan says it would be "nice" to play Eliza, but confirms nothing. Apparently Emma Thompson wants Hugh Grant for Higgins, but there's no guarantee on that.

Warner Bros. Options Carter Beats the Devil. I WANT TO BE EXCITED ABOUT THIS BUT I AM SO SCAAAAARED.

Okay, we need to catch up on this Breaking Dawn thing, because I don't know that we've discussed this. Do you know who Summit has been considering to direct, if by "considering" you mean "begging"? Sofia Coppola, Bill Condon, Gus Van Sant (and let me tell you, given that he's based in Portland and just kooky enough, I had been putting my money on him) and, now, three-time Oscar nominee Stephen Daldry. As the LA Times pointed out, this is a director who has directed three films and has been nominated for every single one. I can't tell if Summit is just being realistic in terms of the kind of talent they're going to have throw at this cracked-out wackadoo story in order for the movie to average out to something decent, or if they REALLY THINK--if they REALLY HAVE that kind of hubris. I don't even know at this point.
