I saw The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy a few days ago and am actually feeling rather "meh" about it, which surprises me because I really wanted to love it. Instead, I basically feel, "Well, that was okay, but nothing too special." I'm not quite sure what caused that reaction. I'm not one of those who cares a great deal if changes are made in adapting a book to film (provided they are changes that make sense and not just pure random stupidity) and, besides, I thought it didn't really deviate in any huge way from the book anyway. The cast was excellent. There were some really wonderfully funny bits. Just...overall, when I was done watching it, I didn't feel any desire to ever see it again.
I'm a little disappointed there is no new drabble theme this week for iyfic_challenge. I was hoping for something that might spark my interest. 'Cause, yeah, "Springtime of Youth?" I got absolutely nothing. Oh well. There'll be a new theme soon in iyfic_contest, and I have a sort of idea for the Yahoo group that I hope to smoosh into something workable by the deadline. And, of course, I still have lots of requests that need love and attention.
