I really needed more than just a weekend to recharge, but that's all I get, so I tried to make the best of it. And by "make the best of it" I mean "buy the last charms I need to complete my Pandora bracelet". So that's what I did today...
So that's my first Pandora bracelet that's just the way I want it. I say "first", because I'm already dreaming of bracelet number two. This is what I had in mind:
And this one is going to cost A FORTUNE with all those gold charms, so it's going to take a while. Don't worry, I'll keep you updated on my progress since I'm sure you're all just dying to know. ;-)
Other things that have happened:
- I finally got myself that new cell phone I was talking about a few months back! And yes, I ended up getting an HTC Legend after all. I LOVE IT. Don't know how I ever lived without it. I've read two books on it so far, I've got two True Blood episodes awaiting viewing, I've become addicted to Mancala, Reversi and Unblock Me (any other game app recs would be most welcome!) and it's the only way I've been able to stay sorta up-to-date on my Twitter feed for the past two weeks.
- I've been fairly good about keeping up with TV. Well, considering...
HIMYM - I caught up last weekend and I'm enjoying this season so far, but I'm not invested AT ALL. Oh, what havoc they wreak with the fangirl mind when they screw up an entire season...
Fringe - I'm really enjoying this season! And especially Olivia! Which is noteworthy since I thought Anna Torv sucked in the first season. But retconning the suck to be a personality quirk due to the experiments worked. I totally jumped on board and lo and behold, she's actually good now! Alterna!Olivia really freed her, acting-wise, I think.
The Good Wife - You know, I was never really on board the Alicia/Will train last season, but I am now. A couple of episodes back, things just clicked for me with those two and you are now looking at a bona fide 'shipper.
Community - What the hell was that episode before this week's? Weird, much? And not in a good way. But other than that I'm happy with this season so far, even though I do get what people are saying about doing away with all those messy "relationships" and "feelings". It just hasn't gotten to the point where it's bothering me yet.
The Walking Dead - I still haven't watched the second episode. I found the first one to be really enjoyable, because while horror doesn't work on me, dread apparently works like a charm. I just haven't been in the mood for it, and then I read some less-than-favorable things and...well...
Kdramas - I ran into some trouble when I watched a long succession of sucky dramas. It got old pretty fast. So I'm currently keeping current with only one Kdrama - Dr. Champ - and it's airing right now (ending next week). I think they're dragging out the love story too long (HELLO! We're at episode 14 and the female lead still fancies herself in love with someone else? WTF?!), but other than that I'm loving it.
I am also up to date on TBBT, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, TAR, Criminal Minds, Lie to Me, Top Chef: Just Desserts and Cougar Town, mainly thanks to a few marathons over the past couple of weeks. And Being Erica, but since anything I have to say about it will be spoilery, I'm going to talk about it below.
- I uploaded a bunch of icons today.
So, this latest episode... I'm not too pleased with my 'ship mostly being used as a vehicle for another 'ship. I was afraid something like this was coming, which is why I waited until this weekend to watch instead of doing it earlier in the week. I dragged it out for as long as I could, because the way they're pushing Adam on us so hard I just knew it wouldn't be satisfying even if they did end up sleeping together.
And whatta ya know? I was right. The only part where I felt that it was all about them and not about Erica defying Adam or being upset about Dr Tom? Was when they were saying goodbye as he left in the cab.
Okay, so maybe I'm just hyper sensitive about this because I want so much for them to have a chance, but right now I don't feel that Erica and Kai willl make it. Which makes me less excited about the rest of the season.
I'm thinking it may be time to spoil myself silly (if that's even possible for BE).
