There Will Be No Update Today

Posted 6 March 2009 in by Catriona

Because I’ve spent most of the afternoon—since I’m a casually employed lecturer who can, to a very real extent, pick her own working hours—reading Watchmen so I can finish it before seeing the film on Sunday.

And now I’m too traumatised to do anything else.

And I’m only halfway through.

I need a drink.

And then I really need to read more of Watchmen.

Yeah I’m a bit apprehensive about Watchmen. I tend to over-identify when watching films (and to a lessor extent reading) so that I might be quite traumatised by it from what I’ve heard. What a big wuss!

I over-identify with films more than with books, oddly, but am I worried about whether I’m going to be able to make it through the film.

I’ve finished the book, now, so it won’t be as traumatic as if I hadn’t read it, but I’m still rather worried.

It looks like a fun film despite one scene that is being hyped up on the net. We’ll just throw popcorn at the bad guys (which is everyone by the sounds of it) and cheer all the big explosions.

Yes. Well . . .

Yes. No need for apprehension, at all.

(I am still rather apprehensive.)
