Things to do today:

#1 Turn down job offer on basis of gut feelings alone.
#2 Change past events so I wasn't standing around waiting half an hour on the bus until three of them arrived from the terminus two minutes up the road.
#3 Seek anger management classes to reduce odds of blood vessel exploding when #2 occurs.
#4 Get last traces of fish pie from ceiling above where it detonated last night upon emerging from the microwave.
#5 Steel willpower such that I can pass a single reflective surface without admiring self.
#6 Somehow regain the two hours of my life spent watching Bloodsuckers and re-use it trying to persuade the SciFi channel to stop making those movies. Aliens meets Firefly meets John Carpenter's Vampires meets complete and total crap is not a good basis for a film.

"Sounds *brilliant*!"

Ironside was probably the best bit of it, he was really enjoyable as the villain and he hammed it up brilliantly but Michael DeLuise was in there too (or someone who looked a lot like him) and I enjoy his stuff from time to time and his performance was like his lines were kidney stones and he was squeezing them out sideways.

In its defence, it had pretty good visuals for a low budget affair (barring one or two instances of shockingly bad editing) but the dialogue was *dire*, I think the people playing the bad guys got the memo saying "we're going for 'OTT so bad its good'" and the folks playing our (anti) heroes got one saying "Serious, gritty sci-fi plz"
