Oh, speaking of John Carpenter (I was, about half a paragraph ago), I'll get to see Big Trouble in Little China (1986) at the Bagdad this week! "Jack Burton says...what the hell." Woo hoo! I've only seen it once before, and not until the Nineties, which seems wrong for me as a geek.
OK; time to get cleaned up and fed and ready for work, and for NOT GETTING SICK.
