Happy Saturday!

Happy belated birthday to jasonbsizemore, dannyboy8406, and snitchbitch. Happy birthday to killerweasel, ashesngolddust, and dracschick. Happy early birthday to wellinghall, nrlymrtl, bellatook, thepirateship, rosieb328, and supervillainess. May all of you enjoy a fantastic year to come!

Thanks to everyone who sent good wishes regarding my Achilles tendon woes. It's slowly feeling better, and I have hopes of being less lame (well, literally, if not metaphorically, haha) soon.

In my last post I included the "Sci-Fi Film Alphabet" by Steven Wildish. Here's my attempt at naming the titles (compiled with help on a few of them). What do you think?

Abyss
Blade Runner
Cube
Dune
Empire Strikes Back
The Fly
Godzilla
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
I Am Legend
Judge Dredd
King Kong
The Last Starfighter
Moon
Nineteen Eighty-Four
Omega Man
Planet of the Apes
Quatermass 2
Running Man
Solaris
Tron
Universal Soldier
V
War of the Worlds
X-Men
Yor
Zardoz




We made another visit to the Henry River Mill Village (which serves as District 12 in the film adaptation of The Hunger Games), and I've posted some new pictures here.
