The cone of silence is no more

Sometimes I amuse myself by trying to pare down my user pics to 15 (the dreaded plus account number!). I rarely make it, though. Collapse )

The last few of episodes of Better Off Ted have been awesome! Is anyone else watching? Because I think it's pretty much up there with Community as my favorite comedy this year. Collapse )

Let's see, what else? My New Year's resolution was to cap more. I set a goal of 10 TV episodes and 1 movie a month. Right now, I'm already working on February's TV caps. All thanks to discovering the new VLC player and its shiny frame-by-frame function.

I'm keeping track of what I cap on my Listography. In a nutshell we've got:

[Capping Life has made me realize that season 1 Dani Reese is one of my favorite characters ever. It hurts my heart to think how apathetic I grew towards her in season 2. *sigh*]

If you've got requests, have at it! I also have a Listography list of what I'm planning to cap, so you can check there to see if I'm already way ahead of you.

I've been pretty quiet lately, mainly due to working, on average, 12 hours a day for the past few weeks (except for public holidays, when I've barely had the energy to get out of bed). Hopefully, my work load will be alleviated come Monday, and I can go back to...being pretty quiet anyway. Heh.

Everybody's working for the weekend!

I'm currently halfway through The Deeper Meaning of Liff, which is like my favorite new thing. For those not in the know, it's "a dictionary of things there aren't any words for yet", by Douglas Adams and John Lloyd. All words are really geographical places. Collapse )

And let me tell you, by the time I stopped working at almost eight last night, I was feeling hynish in the extreme. But today was the first day of my five day weekend, so today is a happy day!

I've been watching a lot of TV since my last update. A LOT. I'm almost back to my January levels, after dropping to alarmingly low levels in March.

I've run out of NCIS seasons on DVD, so unless this Farscape itch gets its claws in me completely, I think the next show in the pipeline is going to be Deadwood. Finally!

I've been really good about adding 25 bucks to my Kiva account each month, and so far this year, I've made seven new loans (the repaid loans have enabled me to loan $175, even though I've only put $100 into my account)! And I think that once this year is up, I'll probably be able to make at least a loan a month in perpetuity without adding another cent.

And since I love the idea of this site so much, here's that link again:

Kiva - loans that change lives

And if you do decide to make a loan, do join the fandom team. The number of members has doubled since my last mention, and the amount loaned has quadrupled, but I still think fandom can do much more.

And if you're into country rivalry, Team Sweden just passed Team USA, which is simply pitiful, you guys. Come on, where's your patriotism?! ;-) (If you're wondering where my patriotism is, I don't care so much about the US being ahead of us, since the US population is about 30 times the size of ours. I just want us to beat those @%!#^/$ Norwegians!)
