Big Screen Stomach-Bug Blog: Part 1
Not that you needed to know, but I spent most of last week fighting a nasty stomach bug, and mostly losing. Friday and Saturday were the worst. To help ease the pain, I watched movies that had most likely been uploaded illegally onto YouTube. So there I was, delighting in The Third Man (and its attendant BBC documentary!), when I got this pop-up ad:
