I am a lot less stressed now that I got a lot of my more pressing crap done. I finally finished my Japan application and over-nighted it to DC. Nothing left to do now except track it obsessively until it reaches its destination.
Also helping me de-stress is Tim Roth as I have randomly decided to start working my way through the first season of Lie To Me. Because I am so topical that way. So far it's fairly awesome, Roth plays Cal Lightman, a bitter Brit with the ability to spot the most minute of facial twitches and pick out all the horrible dirty lies buried within them. He's one of those "brilliant dickhole" types who no one believes but is still always right so it's kinda like House except Lightman's not crippled and not a doctor and actually using his British accent. But apart from that it's like House.
I demand a cross-over, preferably one where they compete to see who is the most cynical, jaded asshole and then possibly make-out. (Hey, at least I don't write fan fiction)
Not much to talk about, revising a paper. I watched a goofy Japanese movie called White On Rice that was basically Napoleon Dynamite. If Napoleon Dynamite was a forty year old Japanese dude who acts like he's ten. And also if Napoleon Dynamite was funny (went there).
In terms of movie news relevant to the world:
Green Lantern trailer makes me "meh" despite large amounts of not-fully-clothed Ryan Reynolds:
I'm not gonna lie, if I was a green lantern I would do nothing but use my power ring to create giant green dicks and batter my enemies senseless with them. Nothing like a big green cockslap to make you think twice about committing crimes.
Oh, and here's a picture of John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe (warning, this picture has been known to cause dangerous amounts of giggling at the expense of John Cusack's dignity. Hide your children):
I just can't pick one thing I like best about it. The goatee-thingy, the sneakers, the bizarre facial expression. Truly this picture is a bounty of ridiculous.
And that's all for me. So sad, I know. This is Sugary Cynic, practicing her facial tics in a mirror in case she ever meets Tim Roth. 'Night!
