You ever have one of those weeks...?

*pouts*

I usually avoid getting pouty online, but I felt a tiny bit justified this time. There is no progress being made on Deja Vu right now, because:

1) Interim grades were due this week, and I had let the grading pile up!

2) I got sick. I think it's strep. I'll go to the doctor tomorrow - but I don't want to take Ashlyn with me to the germ-fest that is a doctor's office when she's perfectly healthy.

3) My beta is really busy with end of term stuff with her job. So the outline isn't finished yet.

And now for the biggest pout of all... I pre-ordered the Donner Cut of Superman II from Best Buy... and when it arrived, it was the HD-DVD version! Then sickness overtook me, and I couldn't go exchange it. When I went today, cold front or no, strep or no, they didn't have it in stock. So my card was credited... but I was no closer to DVD-owning.

BestBuy.com doesn't carry the regular version! And the cheapest version I can find is more expensive than what I paid. Don't get me started on my financial woes right now. But suffice it to say, I can't afford it to be more expensive, even by a dollar. :(

On the bright side, I still will get to see it, through the wonders of *cough*bittorrent*cough*. In... *checks the status bar* ...about an hour.

*sanitized hugs*

Poor thing... and what crappy news about the Donner cut! Here's hoping things clear up for you soon - and hoping that the sickness leaves you!

Don't worry about DV, hon. We all know that you have a life to live too. We'll wait. *more sanitized hugs*

Thanks for the sanitized hugs... I needed them. I hope I feel better tomorrow. My download finished, but there's no sound... Grr. Sometimes I can still get it to work after burning it, so I'm not giving up hope. Yet.

Oh! My poor, poor Barbara! *hugs* You have every right to whine. To be sick and to have to do grades and to be w/out a very important DVD! *hugs again* I hope you feel better soon. If it is strep, a nice antibiotic ought to fix it right up.

My download is working! Yay! My sore throat is still a big bummer, but I am much happier.

Just saw the fruit cart scene. I had read it in script form several months ago... but it's great to see!

I feel for you, my friend. I hope you feel better real soon and that you get the Donner cut as well. While out and about this past Thursday, I was looking for it myself and there was none in sight.

Now, I will aid your healing with the powers of the Force.

Hopefully that helps and the doctor visit as well.

How can you aid me with healing powers of the Force when you are currently chasing me around cyberspace to whack me with your lightsaber?

Snooty Canadian.

I'm really sorry about it all honey *hugs* Here's a cyber-cookie.

If it makes you feel better I haven't got the Donner cut either (neither one of them) I asked the DVDs for Christmas, we're on a tight spot for money right now and it was bad enough that I *had* to have SR.

Much love to you and I hope you get the writting going cuz I need my fix *wink*

Thanks! I'm working on the chapter now. I can't say WHEN it'll be done though. I'm feeling a bit better today. :)

Aw, thanks. I'll take all the e-love I can get!

OT, Kala hates that Dancing Clark icon I swiped from you. I've been using it on her all unsuspecting all weekend long, just because... hee hee. I'm so evil when I'm sick.

I would pout too. I hope things are going better for you. I've been debating on getting the Directors Cut of Superman II, so you will have to tell me how it is and let me know if it's a good purchase or not. I have to wait until my next paycheck to get it but thats the way of it I suppose, I need gasoline and food more than I need movies, wish that wasn't so.

Feel better

Things are definitely going better now. :) I got some medicine and grades are turned in. Whew.

I'm behind on my next chapter, of course. It's about 2300 words now, and only 1/2 finished.

I also was able to watch my downloaded version of the Donner cut, from which the lovely icon above comes. (Thank you coltdancer!)
