"Not the livestock!"

Whoever told me O Brother, Where Art Thou? was a good movie? I had no desire to see it, except for the fact that i heard it was based on the Odyssey. It was the tea movie today. It had good parts, but i don't feel my life much improved for having seen it, and it was based only very cursorily on the Odyssey.

Also, this morning i woke up sick and have not improved. I did get to spend most of my afternoon "at work" reading Stardust, though. Was good, but felt the least Neil Gaiman-y of all his works that i've read so far, and also felt the least original of all his.
