The GOOD: I'm having minor surgery next week and, after that, there is a 75% chance that I WILL NO LONGER BE IN AGONY!!!! :D
The BAD: We're only doing this because my hormone therapy failed last week and we're getting sort of desperate. XD
The BAD: So busy. :(
The GOOD: It is possible that some of my professors will make exceptions and not make me make up the exams I'm going to miss (I have them every day this week and the next).

That's great news, Deloria! !!!  I'm so happy for you! :hug:

THE BAD: My car's tabs have been expired for a month and I didn't realize it. Ooops.

THE BAD: I have to waste my Saturday going out and having an emissions test, which freaks me out because last time I had to go THREE FREAKING TIMES before it passed.

I hate cars.

Thanks. :) Technically, I'm too young to be able to get this, but we're a bit desperate by now. :P

I hope all goes well, Anna.
Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...

The good: Internship interview number 1 went well today :)
The good: I have another one tomorrow afternoon.
The even better: This one tomorrow is paid! (The other one is not)

Prayers/good vibes would be appreciated!

I went to Wal-Mart on Tuesday to buy Legacy, and I saw "TRON: The Original Classic" right beside it.  It was the last one, so I nabbed it. :)  I haven't watched either DVD yet, but mmm boy.  That's my plan this weekend.

:sweetheart: Tron

I'm glad you came around. You were quite unimpressed at first!

It was really cool to see Kevin Flynn and Alan in Legacy, and then see their younger selves in the original. If you watch Legacy carefully, you'll notice that there is a CGI un-aged version of Alan as Tron in one of Kevin's flashbacks (in addition to the CGI un-aged CLU).

Maybe you'll come around to The Matrix too. :P

Gosh, me too!  Now I'm annoyingly into it--I seriously talk about it all the time.  My coworkers are probably like, "Is she on this again?!  SHUT UP!" ::) I just wish that I had known about and had watched the original movie when I was younger, so that I would have the same appreciation for it that I have now!  I so would have been one of those nerds in the 80s that saw it in theatres fifteen times. :)

Whoa, what?!  I really need to pop this DVD in.  The way they made Jeff Bridges younger in Legacy was amazing.  I watched clips on youtube that showed the camera-helmet he wore, and how they digitally re-created his face.  Incredible.

Maybe you'll come around to The Matrix too. :P
You keep on dreaming, honey bear. ;)

Whoa, what?!

Yup. Here's all I could find.



These stills are from the flashback scene where CLU betrays the Tron and Flynn ("Am I still to create the perfect system?").

I only noticed him on my third watching.
