mmmm...booooook good

I was able to dig through some of my boxes (and doing a damn good impression of a contortionist while at it) and got my copy of Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land (uncut version) out and finally began reading it for the first time. I got half-way through the book last night and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Though I do admit to be occasionally being thrown out of the story by the way the characters talk (words like 'shucks' and 'gee') by cracking up over them and I have to remind myself of when it was written.

Hopefully I'll have a power adapter for my laptop by the end of the day. *prays like a mofo* I'm trying to think of one bright side of things with not having Little D by getting some writing done in my notebooks. Though its weird that my favorite way to write in them is by sitting in the car. *shrugs* Go figure.


One thing I was also able to scratch off my 'to do' list was watch One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest the other night when AMC aired it for its 35th anniversary. Damn good movie that has me wondering what was the first movie to show the protagonist being a smart ass in order to 'get back' at their antagonist. Its obviously a popular way for the viewer to get involved with the character(s) in a story or else we wouldn't see it so often now in movies/tv.

Oh! And I now finally 'get' who Nurse Ratched is! And all these years I thought it was Nurse Ratchet. *snicker*
