Cold and Rainy

Looking out of the side rear window on the the way to Doom.

I woke up today feeling completely crappy. My camera hand felt like it was going to fall off and my left shoulder was in pain. Overall, I was sore all over. Was it because of the cold air hitting me at night? Or was it from freezing last night and lugging my normally not so heavy camera bag? I think I'm going to have to upgrade that thing to something that will evenly distribute the weight of all my gear (which I still say isn't that much).

I crawled out of bed to get to the weekly dim sum meet to find that no one would show up. Later on I found Marc had shown up but arrived after I had finished eating my food and left. It all seemed to work out anyway. I felt awful from the time I got up and decided after eating to get home as quickly as I could so I could go back to bed and pass out.

I woke, around 2pm, in time to call Michelle to meet up to see a friend of hers perform at second city. It was cancelled. As luck would have it I turned away a job to see the second city performance. If I took the job I probably would have done a lousy job as it took most of my energy to stand up straight without collapsing.

Later that evening, feeling a bit better, and despite Marc's warnings about movies based on video games and how they all sucked, Michelle, Marc, and I ended up seeing Doom. Not a bad movie if you want a action movie based on a game you played 12 years ago. Like most video game based movies there really wasn't much to it. Lots of killing of weird ass creatures, and the use of weapons that made the game fun. I was throughly entertained.

I imagine Doom would be quite good - another excellent video game movie like Resident Evil and Super Mario Brothers. Snicker.

How about Street Fighter or Double Dragon? I'd like to see hollywood make a movie from Dig Dug or Pengo.
