If I had work to call in sick from I'd be considering it. It is too early for flu season but it definitely feels like that. Could always be allergies though.

I always just say "I'm not feeling well".  I figure if anyone asks I'll say food poisoning ("I ate some bad squid" which really did happen to me not too long ago), but no one ever asks.

They probably don't ask because they don't want to be asked when they call in "sick."  :P

Eh, screw it.  I guess I'll be a grown-up and go to work tomorrow.  Damn my conscience.

Wondering what Jennifer Garner is going to do with Tequila when she finally catches him.

I'm watching the news reports about the ongoing terrorist attack in Norway. I'm safe, living 500 km away from Oslo, but we're still pretty close in Scandinavia. It's shocking and disturbing.

Glad to hear you are safe, but sad to learn of the attacks.

It's really sad to see. The reports are getting worse and worse and it feels quite unreal.
Really depressing.
This isn't 9/11 but it's coming closer to where we are and we're really not used to it. This used to be a protected part of the world. The Shire.

Our team interviewed Joseph Kahn, director of Torque and Detention.
He was really cool.

Comic Con was alright. Really wished I skipped the panels and walked around the booths more. Also wished I saw IGN and Community. Ooooh zeee welllll. Good times. Found out that only roughly 20% of the material there are things I'm truly interested in.

Comic Con was alright.

Coppola's Twixt panel sounded like fun. And Friedman's Locke & Key screening would have interested me too.
