Illness and murder

There seem to have been several posts involving vomit on my friends list today, so I'll join in, by telling you all that I projectile vomited in the general direction of the kitchen sink at lunchtime, and apparently managed to hit the lamp and the *top* of the cupboard door. I was impressed. spiderpixie, who is wonderful and also used to working with small children, had it all sorted by the time I came back through. I love her.

And then I came to work, because I don't think I'm actually ill. Except I still feel a bit ill. Argh. I actually came to work because phoning in sick seemed like more effort than coming in and staring at the screen with a coffee for a bit. And I'm quite chuffed that I did, actually, because I've got this random programme to do that seems to be real-life CSI in Edinburgh. It's not like CSI Miami...

The blurb is:
Officers in Edinburgh investigate the death of a young man after a fight. The man was found at the bottom of a wall but the fight seems to have happened 400 yards away. Elsewhere in the city, there is a lot of blood and evidence of a violent attack, but no sign of the victim. Can investigators piece together the jigsaw puzzles to prove exactly what happened? They also deal with a harrowing suicide and are on the trail of a one-man crime spree.

I'd love to see CSI: Edinburgh, actually. It's such a fabulous city to recreate stuff in. All the streets are on different levels; I know one club where you can go in at street level on either level 1 or level 4, depending on which street you start on. And all the streets criss-cross and involve bridges and winding sets of stairs...wonderful.

Who would you get to star in CSI: Edinburgh? Ooh, Peter Mullan, probably. He'd be great as a Grissom type. Any more suggestions?

CSI: Edinburgh?

Fantastic idea. Ewan McGregor please. And John Hannah. Plus the brunette shepherdess from Monarch of the Glen, cos she was totally cute.

Oooh, yeah, Dawn Thingy. And we'd have to have Daniela Nardini, I think. Though maybe we should leave some Scottish actors for CSI Glasgow...

Glad you made it to work in one piece, see you later ;0)

They've just found a pie that they think the victim was carrying. This doesn't happen in Miami!

Maybe we'd have to make it the comedy version....

I'd happily put Christopher Lee in everything, ever.

Have you seen him as Dr Catheter in Gremlins 2? Stunning. Apparently it was his 200th film.

I haven't seen Gremlins 2 for YEARS, so I don't remember Mr Lee! This is a valid excuse for watching it again - must have a Gremlins weekend soon.

Yay Gremlins weekend!!!! Shame there are only 2 of them, maybe we could combine it Critters or the other puppety kids films which I seem to be accidentally collecting. :D

Or we could do a Mr Lee weekend, dig up some cool Hammer Horror!!

We need to do this soon, shame we didn't think of it before Halloween

That's some impressive vomiting! I wonder if you and I have the same mystery affliction? If you want a vision of your future, I've managed the working day OK, but I am absolutely exhausted now, and my throat is sore again after 2 hours of lecturing. I recommend you get as must rest as possible, and try not to speak too much.

Oooh, lovely. Well, I've only had to say about two sentences in the last two and a half hours, so that seems like a reasonable amount of speaking. And sitting in the corner reading LJ is fairly restful, but harassment by my bosses for doing no work isn't, so I better get on with things... Everyone else will go home about six and there'll hardly be anyone here, so that'll be lovely.

Hope you feel better tomorrow (and I do too...)
