αΩ | Φ | nobody said it was easy

Rebecaving myself

Qwyzzle once again has me enthralled. I just went to check on when I last posted about it, and it was over a year ago, and until a few days ago I still hadn't gotten past level 34. That was an entirely evil level. But I've been plodding along since then, making it all the way to level 61, and now I'm stuck again. OF COURSE.

Also, I don't think I could manage more than the occasional level without hints from the forum. It's HARD. /whine

And! I hate that I have to use IE for it. Though, since it's the only thing I use IE for I decided to make my last solved puzzle my home page.

It's really bizarre to be translating Conan and have a Swedish band as the musical guest, but not being able to translate Peter Bjorn and John into Peter Björn och John, because it's a band's name, not the members' name. Well, it is the members' name, but they made it into a band name. Okay, now I'm confusing myself with all these names.

I watched Collapse )

I'm still enjoying My Name is Earl, but mostly just on a superficial level.

Scrubs this season...I don't know, it's not doing it for me. Not even the musical (with the exception of Guy Love) did all that much for me.

Still liking Ugly Betty, though I will never understand why anyone would think Walter was a good character to have on the show. Can he just go away now?

Oh, also, Tim Gunn leaving Parsons for Liz Claiborne makes me anxious for Project Runway, but I'm trying to convince myself that Liz Claiborne would probably consider the show to be great publicity. Plus, the scheduling conflict for season 4 was Tim's commitments at Parsons, but now that's no longer an issue...

Interesting things learned from the old friends list

Well, first of all, there are apparently evil people on it. Specifically, molly_may for linking to Qwyzzle yesterday, which led to me spending four hours this evening solving puzzles. I quit at #34 - seemed like it would take way more brain power than I had available at the time. Further sign of evilness? I couldn't get it to work in Firefox so I had to use IE.

Apparently VM isn't returning until the 25th. I'm kind of grateful because I get the feeling I'm going to be very busy in the next couple of weeks.

Logan is gay.

A large portion of my spoiler-free friends have gone and spoiled themselves for VM. Personally, I'm thinking of doing that for BSG.

hobviously linked to a post on BSG and how Kara/Lee is somehow a sign of 'shipper entitlement. And I totally don't get it. Maybe it's because I'm a 'shipper (in general, but not really a Kara/Lee 'shipper), so I come at it from a different perspective, but I think the biggest problem I have is that I don't see the kind of overwhelming prevalence of Kara/Lee 'shippers that the post seem to indicate. Maybe I just have a very skewed friends list, but I feel like I know almost as many Lee/Laura 'shippers as Kara/Lee 'shippers.

Apparently The Office (US) doesn't suck! Who knew? Everyone's watching it right now, so I gave in and downloaded some episodes. Collapse )

There's a new Gilmore Girls episode tonight! I'd almost forgotten that the show would be returning.

The region 1 release of Doctor Who 2005 season 1 has been delayed.

Aaaand I think that's all the news that's fit to print.
