I hate this country

I woke up and came downstairs to find Alicia watching CNN. She's been watching it all day. It was impossible to ignore when I got home from work, and the whole thing is just leaving me a mess because I can hear every word, not to mention when she comes in to give me updates even though I asked her not to. She thinks I'm overreacting. I don't think I am, even though I recognize intellectually that this isn't going to be decided for at least another day or two.

Today's meme question: Have you ever been disappointed by a screen adaptation of a favorite novel or story?
If I love a book that much, I don't usually watch a movie made out of it, so I would say my answer to this is no, mostly because I don't put myself into that position. For instance, when The House with a Clock in Its Walls came out a couple years ago, I very deliberately avoided going to see it because I didn't want my childhood memories of that book to spoiled.
