Saturday and tennis and updates

Saturday morning and I'm catching up on LJ comments while watching TV. I started out with Punjabi music videos, which I always enjoy. There's usually some romance story to them, though I saw one which seemed more about gangs and the singer had an impressive amount of bling.

My fave from today was one where they were really teasing about kissing, to the point of showing a close up of their mouths almost meeting. Then the girl got bitten on the ankle by a snake and the guy had to suck out the poison. It was lovely.

Now I'm watching Federer vs Kiefer. Kiefer is very hot.


Speaking of tennis, I've been looking at the match formats for the USTA Junior Competition. The Boys 12 play three tiebreak sets with a 10 point match tiebreak in lieu of the third set. Boys 14 play three tiebreak sets. So it seems to me that with Ryoma's US tournament experience, he would be used to playing longer matches than he is at Seigaku. No wonder he's all stuck up at first.


I watched about half of The Faculty last night. Googling did not turn up any Coach Willis/Casey non-con, but I'm sure it must be out there somewhere. God, Robert Patrick was hot in this.


UPDATES

Birthday. Thank you to everyone who sent me birthday wishes and feedback on the birthday stories! You are sweet and wonderful and you make me feel loved and appreciated.


Johnny Cash. The Boy reports that after reading a biography of Cash, he's having an easier time with the music. I don't see him coming around to loving it, though. And all you people who posted that you like Johnny Cash but not beer? It just made me sad to think of so many people not enjoying beer!


Zombie Sorter. Roughly half the poll-takers are zombies, by my estimation, and half are not. A few of you are doing low-carb. And riddering and ladyvyola are clearly cannibalistic serial killers, not zombies, so keep an eye on them.

And now to see if BSG has downloaded yet.

I caught about half of The Faculty last night, as well-- it made me strangely nostalgic for bad 90s teen movies. Oh, the 90s.

I think I missed a lot of the bad teen movies in the 90s. Probably that's not a bad thing. *g*

Hi Hal,

Um, belated happy birthday! Someone may have recced this to you already, but have you checked out WaxJism's 'Void'? It's probably the best 'Faculty' fic out there. (You can find it by googling - sorry, can't remember the URL off the top of my head and don't want to check it at my parents' house.)
Also, check out Cesare's fic in her memories (lj-user: almostnever).

Akshi.

Thanks for the birthday wishes and the recs! The movie had great characters but the het pairings were a little boggling to me.

boggling to everyone, I think...

...which is why there's so much slash out there ^_^
