I finally call her, wish her a happy anniverary, tell her to wish my dad a happy annivrsary too. It's not until I hung up from that call that I realize that it's their 40th. Custom or not, sick or not, I really feel I should have done something for such a momentous occasion. Now I feel bad.
Amazon.co.uk is having a 4 for 3 sale so I bought a bunch of TV shows (and got the complete series of Tru Calling for free), but when I'd placed my order I was told it'll be delivered in late November. Are they kidding me? Only one DVD set wasn't in stock, and that one had a waiting period of 3-4 days, so I immediately e-mailed customer service.
Looks like I'll be translating the Emmys again this year. Though not alone this time, which THANK GOD, especially after seeing the reactions of my friends list. I gather neither the show nor the award recepients were to people's liking? I haven't even bothered to find out who won.
Okay, so I like the show, but I don't love it like a lot of you do. I will keep watching it this fall, so I at least like it enough to keep up with it.
Still don't like Riggins (though the burning hatred has dimmed somewhat), but I find that even my favorite characters get the zone-out treatment when they're with either Riggins or Lyla. Seriously, I'll be watching Tyra and her mom and I'm riveted, and then Riggins comes along and I'm so uninterested that I'll leave the room or start reading fic or something. Same thing with Lyla.
The one exception to this, I've found, is Tyra and Lyla. They should hang out more, but only if they snipe at each other continuously.
So, favorite characters are pretty much Everyone Not Tim or Lyla, but especially Tyra, Street, Mrs. Coach, Landry, Coach, Smash... Well, you get the idea.
As I hinted earlier, I've been feeling a bit sick, and even though I felt wretched yesterday I think I got more done than I have in a single day in ages. Well, if you count watching a backlog of TV "getting things done". Fortunately, I DO. And I did put in a full day's work too, so there's that. I also cleaned, shopped for groceries and read fic. Who knew a cold could provide such an energy boost?
