Insomnia sucks.

I'm at my sister's pet sitting again. The dogs are being very very good. I, on the other hand, am not doing so well! I couldn't sleep last night. I stayed up playing games on the television (Direct TV has games) until 3 a.m.! I finally got to sleep at about 4.

Not much going on. I finished reading Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day. I loved it! I'm almost done with a cross stitch project, and I'm gong to see the new Indiana Jones movie on Monday.

Stupid me. I didn't bring any of my movies with me. I should have at least brought Blood and Chocolate- I'm having a "Wee Blythe" withdrawal. q will know what I'm talking about...doesn't he have any new projects lined up? I miss him! I need something to squee over, it's been that kind of month. :p Me and my obscure British actors...

is it just blythe you're missing, or his actor? *is missing the lights out of a completely fictional character atm, and watching his actor in other things isn't helping*

if it's his actor, maybe youtube can help?

OH NO, HE'S WHISTLING AND HE'S ALL CUTE AND NOW I HAVE TO WATCH IT TOO! I won't forgive you if this is super long and it disappears from YouTube before I get a chance to see it all.

Oh no, and he's all charming and cute, and the bar girl has hair just like mine, except she's all pretty in her dresses, and there's all nifty stuff that makes me want to make dollhouses, and argh!

On to part 2...

It's both, I guess! Sigh. They should do a sequel of Blackpool with just our Blythe!

I actually have Twenty Thousand Streets Under The Sky on DVD. It's region 2 only, but I have a hacked player *evil*. I thought Bryan was great in it. His first leading man role, IRRC!

No! :p You don't need to be saved from Bryan. Bryan lust is a good thing.

I ended up getting distracted and didn't watch beyond part 2 of that youtube thing - but I'm full of SUSPENSE that things will start going BAD, that his character will end up being a total cad, or the blonde girl will be mean, or someone will tell Bryan "you leave that girl alone!" or the cute brunette will do something desperate, or oh noes! Just worried. Things were going so nicely. I'M SCARED.

Mostly scared that he would turn out to be a complete cad. Is he?

No. He's just naive. The prostitute really takes him for a ride. There are actually three parts to the series- Bob's story, Jenny's story (the blonde), and Ella's story.

The novel it's based on is really wonderful. I think it's being republished in the US soon, you might want to check it out (author is Patrick Hamilton).

Oh ok. I can handle naive. And I'm glad that if one of them has to be a baddie, it's her and not him. He's just too cute. (But that was why he seemed TOO cute - like he was posing.)

Haha, I just saw this old entry:

and I saw where I wrote this comment:
http://grace-poppy.livejournal.com/141179.html?thread=2475643#t2475643
where I grabbed your "labels" and shook you desperately. I meant labels. But maybe you had labels hanging off of all your new clothes and they were the nearest thing I could grab. Or labels that said "Bryan Dick Fan" or "Squee Enabler" or "Drug Dealer."

I'm glad you're my friend, even if you do lead me down the path of addictions.
