I had a dream this morning wherein I was at work, and then took a long lunch break at a bar, and then decided to spend the rest of the afternoon at the bar, and then looked at my watch and realized that only a few hours had gone by.  When I finally woke up, I had one of those showers where I'd completely lost track of time - I might have been standing in there for 20 seconds, or 20 minutes, I had no idea. 

So you can imagine that coming back to work today has been a bit rough, especially since I've actually been busy.  The last week and a half had been pretty much all-day snooze-fests - days where I probably could have gone to a bar and gotten drunk all afternoon and nobody would have noticed - but this morning I've been getting slammed left and right.

Anyway.  Happy New Year.  I had a stomach bug for the last 36 hours or so; this is the first time I've been out of the house for any substantial amount of time.  Good times.

Those of you with time on your hands, please enjoy:
1.  My Year Of Flops #98:  Rent.  Oh my, this might be my favorite one of them all, and I haven't even seen the movie.

2.  Vanity Fair's super-deluxe feature on the new Indiana Jones movie.

3.  I can't remember if I posted this or not; anyway, here's a list of the movies slated for release in 2008.  There's some pretty intriguing ones in here, I must say.

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
