catching up  
Whuf. Been a long week. Work's quieted down, sort of. We got back one of the three casualties (Annoying Team Lead, naturally, although he's moving to a different group, so, thath's something.) They're still working on reviving the other two, but it doesn't look hopeful. Many shorthanded workdays ahead.

The *real* casualty of increased monitoring at work (as you can see, I'm not being strictly faithful here) is that I haven't been able to keep up on my comic book links and most of my gaming links. Le yikes. Makes me sad inside, and I know all the people I forward goofy links too are missing out as well.

Despite prodigious goofing off and procrastinating, I got a lot of painting done this week. Last night was an epic painting session, in fact. Will be table-ready for the megabattle on Saturday, so, yay. Looks to be fun.

And as I had a deadline (and a slavedriving gamemaster) I've been forced to actually finish painting an army, a huge chore for me. I will confess, though, there is a certain sense of accomplishment going on here. Might have to try and turn this into a habit, as time permits.

As previously noted, getting sucked back into larping. Le sigh. Doing my homework, though.

I totally need one day to just catch up on sleep, at this rate.

* Who's who in the new X-men movie. Also, chatting with the actors and actresses.
* Fametracker's Fame Audit of Paul Bettany. (Say what you will, but I still love A Knight's Tale.)
* Cate Blanchett to play... Bob Dylan.
* SciFi Channel to get... pro wrestling? (Courtesy Magistrate.)

speaking of gaming
The painting marathon has kept me off City of Heroes for like a week and a half now, I don't even know if the new patch has gone live yet.

Puzzle Pirates, on the other hand, keeps tempting me back "for just a few minutes," mostly thanks to Rumble being the most awesome minigame evar.

Ehn. I was in OWbN before. It's all about finding the right people to play with. I have no intention of getting swept up in things. Really, it's about an excuse to dress nice and use a funny accent.

Wait, does Fametracker want Paul Bettany LESS famous? Because right now they have him at "Christian Bale" levels and think he deserves to be at "Cillian Murphy" levels. No offense to Cillian Murphy, but come on now. Bale is way more famous.
PMMJ: Sebulbacheetahmaster on May 26th, 2006 04:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah. I also don't think Bettany is Bale-levels of famous, but that's a different story.
Jen: desmondexamorata on May 26th, 2006 04:59 pm (UTC)
I'm thinking maybe they transposed the names. I'd buy that Bettany is currently at Cillian Murphy levels of fame.

Re: So They Turned Calisto
I read a funny commentary somewhere, talking about comic books adapted into movies. Fans of other mediums (books, in their example) tend to be up in arms when changes are made during filming. Comic books fans, for the most part, bitch about changes, but in the end we're just grateful the movie got made and that they didn't screw things up too badly.
