Coming soon: Arquette-ization

I was going to blog about my Capclave experience today, but I've still got a headache from the sustained effort of Trying Not to Act Like a Dork, both at the con and at the family wedding the night before. Like a lot of writers, I don't get out much, so it can be a challenge to speak to actual people (the ones in my head don't count) without embarrassing myself.

So today I just give you this and hope it changes your life.

I am trying to post something witty, but I believe that my brain has spontaneously combusted.

Personally, I'm a Daniel fan, ever since "Homicide: Life on the Streets." And Alec is nice. He was fabulous in Cooler with William H. Macy and Maria Bello (who's now appearing in History of Violence). Never seen William or Stephen in anything, but I'll take their word for it that they have careers.

I love Alec. Except for the wife-beating part. Oh, and which non-career bro is an arch-conservative?

Well, Kathy & I saw William B & Cindy Crawford in their movie (Hot Target? No... Sexy Victim? Closer... oh right... Fair Game) pretty much because we wanted a dumb eye-candy actioner.

Turns out we didn't want one THAT dumb. Craptacular.

'Craptacular' is the official word of the day. Along with "jeltt," the word I have to type in to post this comment.

It's craptacular jeltt!

Cecilia, I didn't know Alec was a wife-beater. What a shame. And the conservative would undoubtedly be Stephen, who appeared in such Christ-centric films as "Six: The Mark Unleashed." But maybe I'm just stereotyping. Or typing in stereo, since I'm using both hands.
