Medical students Brian and Allison get in some
extra homework for their human anatomy class
in Unrest (2006).

I came back to the blog here and it seems I've had a few inquiries, so
if you want to know were I've been over the past days and/or what I've
been up to or why no new posts, well, I will let you guess:

A) I've been sick.

B) I've been on a long binge.

C) I was climbing mountains in Tibet.

D) I was shacked up with Kirsten Dunst in a cheap motel.

E) I was abducted by aliens.

F) My dog ate my computer wires.

G) All of the above.

If you guessed "E" — abducted by aliens — you would be correct.

I have to say that the aliens that took me were very courteous and
didn't even probe me. I don't know whether to feel relieved or hurt
about that one. Maybe I'm just too old and unattractive these days for
extraterrestrials to want to probe me.

Incidentally, the aliens seem to like to drink champagne mixed with LSD.
I really don't know whether they always drink that or maybe just do the
LSD thing but threw the champagne in due to New Year's coming up. I told
them I would skip the LSD and just have the champagne.

In other news, we here in Spokane are now living under (or alongside)
51 inches (129 cm) of snow. I took a little expedition across the street to
my grocery store a couple of days ago, and as I was walking across the
parking lot a friend of mine, Joanna, pulled up in her car. She asked
me how I was liking the weather. I told her that I thought it was great,
but that it was a little like living on another planet. Or maybe Greenland.

Not having to go to work or anything, I've been pretty much staying at
home due to the weather — not that I normally go out much anyway. So
I've been keeping warm here at home and playing with my dog Sasha and
watching a good number of horror movies. Last night I watched Unrest
(2006), which is the grossest movie I've ever seen.

In fact, one scene in it almost made me vomit.

So I guess you could say I've been keeping busy.
