Just got back from watching Venom...

...and I liked it.

 

I decided about an hour before the movie started that I was going to go see it, so I was in a bit of a rush, but judging by the theater showtimes it looked like it'd be gone after Wednesday. It was either go today or see it on DVD later.

 

I don't think I've ever read any of the Venom comics, and the one preview of the movie I vaguely recalled seeing didn't excite me. But I heard that Eddie and Venom were surprisingly fun together, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

 

I wish the portion of the movie prior to Venom's introduction had been about half as long, and I'd love to see a superhero(ish) movie in which the main dude does not have a girlfriend or any girlfriend-related drama. The only plus was that Anne didn't require any saving, but that's at least partly because Venom left her behind.

 

That said, Venom and Eddie were great to watch together, like some kind of weird buddy comedy. You have to be relatively okay with lots of casual death, though. It reminded me a little of Deadpool in that respect. Eddie only seemed to be bothered if Venom ate them, but lots of people were definitely dead by the end of the movie, even if Venom didn't bite their heads off.

Non-book post: I have a new car

I feel awkward and panicky about it for a variety of reasons. And I'm fighting a inner voice that keeps saying "why did you do that, you don't even like driving and the old car still worked." But now I have fancy things like cruise control, power door locks, a car alarm, a back-up cam, and Bluetooth. I listened to an audiobook over my car speakers on the way home, without having to dig out an adapter (or just give up and listen via the phone speakers with the audio all the way up, my usual method). So that's pretty cool. Also, the new car doesn't look diseased, or make a weird whining noise sometimes when I turn. Or any weird noises at all, for that matter.

 

I think I'm going to start The Haunting of Hill House TV series tonight, in the hope that it will help my stress headache go away. I had thought buying this car would be less stressful than buying my previous one, because that was rushed and had to be done ASAP, whereas I'd been planning this purchase for a few months and was as prepared as I was ever going to be. Looks like the amount of stress was pretty similar, though, just a different sort.

Ugh. That feeling when you schedule a meeting with four other people, send out a request for agenda items, and the only person to respond to that email is also the only person who shows up to the meeting.

 

Too bad that isn't considered an acceptable reason to just give up, go home, and curl up with a cat, a cup of tea, and a book.

Spoke too soon

It turns out I'll be taking the day off, but not the way I hoped. Nausea sucks. I thought it'd pass and then almost couldn't finish brushing my teeth. Here's hoping the Pepto works and the day improves. -_-

I saw this the other day and it made me laugh. Yup, this is "Fall" where I live. It'll probably be shorts and T-shirt weather for a good while longer.
