I'm not really here, I'm sewing, I swear!  
 Still sewing.

Woke up with another migraine yesterday morning around 3:30am.  Couldn't lie down, couldn't read, couldn't do much but sit there with an ice/heat back on the back of my neck for about three hours.  (Oh, and this ENORMOUS FREAK OF A SPIDER practically attacked me as soon as I sat down on the futon.  No, really.  He had to have been exposed to some sort of mutation elixir, because he was seriously the biggest damn spider I have ever seen.  And very fast.  Usually when they're as big as him, they're Wolf spiders, and have fairly small bodies but lots of leg.  He had a huge, squishy body.  I killed him, and have been very paranoid around my house ever since.  I'm too scared to google what kind of brown spider he might have been.  I'm going with a mutant brown house spider for the moment.)

So, I turned on the TV and the Xbox and watched Netflix with the volume really low.  I'm not sure why I can watch something on the TV, but can't bear to read, something to do with eye strain, I imagine.  Anyway, I caught up on Legend of the Seeker, and then I watched the first episode of this Starz show called Spartacus.

Um.  It was all very Gladiator meets 300.  With lots (and lots) of gorgeous muscles.  I could do without all the digital sprays of blood filling the screen (movies like Sin City actually make me feel slightly ill), but it has lots of really pretty people (It took me almost the entire episode to decide that yes, that was indeed Craig Parker of Legend of the Seeker as the Roman commander guyshort hair and no beard really changed the look of his face), and it reminded me a bit of Rome, which I still miss.  I do believe I'll be watching it further.

What's this about Starz doing an Arthurian show?  I looooooooooooooooooooooove Arthurian mythos, like whoa.  I can't even tell you.  To see something where the actual Guinevere/Lancelot/Arthur triangle might play out across many eps of story, drama, and being Starz, perhaps many muscles and pretty?  Well.  Twist my arm, why don't you!  Knights of the Round Table!  Morgan Le Fay!  Merlin!  I hope this happens.

Today, I slept blissfully through the night.  No migraine.  No spiders *shudder*.  Now i'm up, sipping my coffee and contemplating another ep of Spartacus with my oatmeal, before I dive back into sewing for the day.

Re: The Spider: *shudders with you* You have my deepest sympathies. I also had to tangle with a spider this morning but luckily it was smallish. Had it been the size that yours was I probably would have surrendered the house to it.

Spartacus is pure trash, but pretty. I love Lucy Lawless in it.
