Couple days ago, I noticed I was sneezing a lot. A lot. Wondered what might be in the air. Yesterday, woke up, nose was stuffed up, felt rough around the edges...yep, I'm sick. I don't tend to get sick, really, so this just sucks. Went out to the farm anyway, and the day wasn't too bad. Couldn't get to sleep last night, woke up entirely too early. This morning, even more stuffy, eyes watering, feeling ragged. Fuck a duck, this is ungroovy. I hate feeling like this. Luckily, I have some Mountain Dew, which makes everything better.

Speaking of the farm, we bottled the Cabernet Sauvignon. Had a little left over, so we had to give it the taste test. Now, it'll sit in the bottle for about a year before it's really ready to drink, but it was still pretty good, just now. The Trio Blanca had the last additives put in, and it'll be ready to bottle in about 3 weeks, and the Mango went through it's first racking. Wine central down there, I swear.

You ever stop and think about how some of your tastes change as you grow? In high school, I was a die-hard Dr. Pepper drinker. Eventually, I sorta shifted back to Coke, but in the past year or two, I've found myself sticking to Mountain Dew most of the time. Odd.

Got some incredibly good deals on books at B&N last night. Most of today shall be spent playing CoH, before the D&D game tonight.

Ugh.

In a recent article, Terry Gilliam, former member of Monty Python and famous film director, talks a little about the movie industry. It is mentioned about how frustrated he gets with film executives, and how they screw around with productions. He goes on to say that, with they way they penny-pinch his films into oblivion, he finds it hard to sympathise with their anguished bleatings over how pirating of movies is driving them to the poor house.
"It's hard for me to worry about the studios losing money. I'm not very sympathetic to their money problems, because they certainly haven't been sympathetic to mine. When you look at one of their accounting sheets you realise you're never going to see a penny, so if someone wants to rip them off that's fine with me. If you're going to pirate, though, make sure the quality's good. Have some respect for what you're pirating!"
Gilliam kicks so much ass. He's already one of my favourite directors, and that comment just ices the cake.

Fuckin' classic.
