A week's worth of aMUSEment
I don't know how I felt about the movie as a whole, but I suspect when it came out, it was fairly unique. Wesley Snipes plays a convincing vampire slayer, and the girl - whose name I've already forgotten - was pretty good. There were some scenes, like the blood shower, I kind of wish I'd written, and there were some cheese-ball moments I'm glad I didn't.
But (not suprisingly, I'm sure) I absolutely loved STEPHEN DORFF as Deacon Frost.
By now it's obvious I lean towards the bad boys, and in Blade, Dorff does a fabulous job of being the handsome creep in search of world domination. Well, until he turns into that ugly blobby thing at the end.
I choose not to think of him that way, but rather as pictured above.
The flu, chased by a cold, kept me bed-ridden for the weekend, and I'm home sick today with little hope of accomplishing anything more than a few e-mails. From my - *cough* - extensive research, it doesn't look like Stephen has been doing too much of anything as of late, which means he has time on his hands.
Time enough I'm sure to star in the role of this week's muse avatar.
When I finally kick this evil flu/cold I'm going to have to work extra hard to catch up - on everything. Work. Working out. Writing. Blech. Here's hoping Stephen can hold it together long enough to help me out...
The Book in My Bag Today: Linger, Maggie Stiefvater
*Note to Karen: Ok, so I finished The Night Season on your Kobo (thank you!) and was too sick to return it...so I started Linger, and now I'm kind of addicted. But I promise, you CAN have your Kobo back...<3
