I've just got back from seeing "I Am Legend". When did Will Smith go grey? Sadly, no gratuitous shower scene in this film, but a nice pullups one instead ;)
Mind you, I'd still recommend the book
over the film any day, even taking into account my love of pre-moon landing SciFi.
All I've done today is some laundry, some washing up (and something
inside the rubber gloves has made my hand smell of cheese, and not even a shower and perfume has fixed it), mucked out the cats, knitted a hat upside down and tinked it (to check whether I had enough yarn, and it looks better with decreases instead of increases), started watching season 2 of Dexter (which is starting to frustrate me. It's a lovely premise for a series - a serial killer who only kills deserving criminals who escape the law - but he's too sympathetic) and read some more Yuletide fics. Speaking of which, Pushing Daisies
and Twice Upon A Time
both treat The Narrator as a real person, and do it very well. The tone and humour of the series is there, and Jim Dale (yes, *that* Jim Dale) could really be reading them.
Predictably, there are a lot of Knitting Detective stories. Knit Picking
is one of the best, and doesn't read as if the author was sprinkling in as many knitting references as possible to get their point across.This Other Life
could be an outtake from canon. It's the main canon relationship, done in exactly the right style, and goes some way to showing why I no longer completely dislike Anna Friel.
Finally, Happy Endings Are Hard To Come By
is femslash. It's rated PG-13 by the author, so probably worksafe. I shouldn't
like this - I don't generally read femslash, and never thought I could accept any non-canonical pairings from the show, but it's sweet and funny and won't spoil things for me if they film a second series.
