Don't Make Any Plans For the Next Epoch  
Blah. Kinda depressed right now, for no real concrete reason. Just one of those nights, I guess. Those nights when it seems too dark outside and the streetlights look almost fluorescent-- when no matter how loud you turn up the stereo, it doesn't seem to help.

I'm debating redoing my LJ layout. Does anyone know how to put pretty banners up on presets like Component and Opal Libra?

Went and saw The Wicker Man with Sam today, came out feeling like having a human sacrifice, my own self. ^_~/^^; It's fairly safe to say the writers had major issues with women. [sarcasm]Of course any female oriented society would be insane and murderous[/sarcasm]. Whatever. *waves around the one-fingered salute*

On the upside, I learned today that, when John Adams died, his last words were in regards to the fact he was torqued off that Thomas Jefferson was going to outlive him. Little did he know that ol' Tommy had died five hours earlier in Virginia. Also, the founding fathers prepared everything for George Washington's inauguration, but they forgot the Bible. They had to borrow one at the last minute.
Dudes, the Fouding Fathers were an imperfect lot with a great deal of ego floating about, but I have so much love for them sometimes. Better to see them as human.

Also, in roughly ten billion years, our galaxy is gonna collide with Andromeda. In case anyone had plans, or anything.

*wanders off to find something to do*

What you've said here about the Founding Fathers, I totally get that. I kind of feel the same way.

I'm glad the email got through. I apologize that there aren't more actual zombies, though. I tend to use them more as a backdrop than anything when I write.

*grins* See, this is totally why I'm a history major. Because I get geeky pleasure from these seemingly small facts. ^_^

Dudes, Amber, it's not how many zombies you have, it's how you use them. ^_~

I laughed out loud when I read this last night, then I stuck it on a post-it on my wall. :D

Have you read Burr by Gore Vidal? It sounds right up your alley.

Go get acopy of the original. Ed Woodward is more interesting than Nicholas Cage, and the story while weird in a 70's way, it's not egregiously insulting.

Also, it's hard to top Christopher Lee as the villian in any movie.

Thanks for the tip, Neotoma. I noticed there was a previous film in the credits, because it said something like "based on a screenplay based on...". I remember thinking, 'They must be pretty far from the source material.'

Weird 70's is fine with me. It'll be like The Dunwich Horror. ^_^
