Forever and a day

It's been a loooong time since I updated. I'm not even sure why since I have been watching tons of stuff and have had things to say about them. I think the problem is just that it eventually got to be so much that it just felt overwhelming to post about it. So I figured I'd start writing and see how long I can go before get tired of it.

Okay, I think I've used up ALL THE WORDS now. Sorry about the word vomit and if you struggled through all that, I'm truly sorry. Cookie?

DRAMA

I dropped off the face of the earth (again) because as soon as the US television season ended, I became reobsessed with kdramas. I have a feeling this may become a regular thing for me. Summer=drama!time, that's just how it'll be from now on.

I've rewatched a few dramas (just this weekend I rewatched Coffee Prince. LOVE. Like, every time I rewatch it - and it's been a few times! - I feel like I love it more than the previous time. This rewatch I didn't even FF through Secondary Couple Issues I Don't Care All That Much About.), but I'm mainly watching shows that are airing currently. In order of obsession:

As for the US finales, here are a few quick reactions:

Capping

  • I've capped quite a few more Good Wife episodes - I'm now up to episode 16.

  • I'm still capping Farscape season 1 as I rewatch, but I've been stalled on episode 11 for a while.

  • And I finally got my Cougar Town season 1 DVDs, so I capped/rewatched the first few episodes. Honestly, now that I love the characters so much, even the early episodes are tolerable.

All the News That's Fit to Print

I'm going on vacation in a month! Which is why I've been been on a buying spree for all the things I've been meaning to buy so that I can take it with me. So far I bought a camera (a Nikon Coolpix - purple), a new eReader (I've been getting annoyed with the format limitations of my old one, and the BeBook Club is pretty damn cheap as eReaders go), an mp3 player and a bunch of clothes. Now I just need a suitcase to put it all in and I'm golden.



I'm keeping up with my capping amazingly well so far this year. Right after my previous post I watched Sherlock, so I capped that. And I've been inching along with my Good Wife, Fringe and Farscape rewatches, capping all the while. This weekend I got a craving for Terminator: TSCC, so I resumed capping that. And I finally got my Downton Abbey DVDs, so the first three episodes are done and done! Oh, and I'm sure I got some Community episodes squeezed in there, but linking that would require me going to another gallery so...



I have lots and lots of TV to watch every week, and I'm doing pretty damn well keeping up for a sweeps month (or is March a sweeps month? Or was that only last year? I'M SO CONFUSED. Oh wait, it was special last year, right? Because of the switch-over to digital. Or something...)

Reality shows first:

Now dramas:

I started watching Fairly Legal, which I'm enjoying because it gets Sarah Shahi back on my TV screen. It's fun and bubbly and nothing to get all worked up about. Also, Leo is the best!

And last but not least: Comedies

I know that Leslie Knope hasn't got a snowball's chance in hell of winning Fandom March Madness, but man, I really want her to, because she is just FLAWLESS. I love her to death and I want everyone else to.

But I'll settle for Troy Barnes winning the whole thing. Which I don't believe he will. My flist makes his inevitable triumph seem like a sure thing, and if my flist was the only one voting, I'm sure he'd win with little to no problem. But I doubt fandom at large is as awesome as my flist and I'm sure House or someone equally non-worthy will once again - inexplicably! - make it the final four. But we're going to give him a run for his money, of that I'm pretty sure!

YOU GUYS, TOMORROW IS MARCH. BRING ON THE MADNESS!

The rumors are wrong. I am, in fact, not dead

Last week was a close call, though, when I got sick on Tuesday morning and still had to work all week (racking up 50 hours total for the week. Fun! Except not.)

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". Collapse )




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... Collapse )

  • I uploaded a bunch of icons today.

On a final note: Dreamhost moved my site to a new server this morning with hardly any notice, and while the only difference I've noticed has been that it's become much zippier, there may be issues somewhere that I'm not finding. If you see something amiss, can you let me know (this goes double for you, bellanut and typicrobots)?

See a scent, pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck.

I'm on scent overload!

First of all, I got my BPAL package today. I smelled all of them, but boy, they're really pungent in the vial. So today I started out by trying Tempest. I really like it! And the longer I have it on, the better it seems to smell. It's not really my kind of scent, but it completely reminds me of something my mother would wear (not in a bad way, just that it resembles a lot of the scents she wears), and I might have her try it, see if she likes it.

One thing, though: I got an extra six-pack of imps. Is this common? I mean, great and all, but if I got someone else's imps, I'll want to contact them and see to it that the original orderer gets her (his?) scents.



I also got an order from Etsy. Pegasussoaps, to be exact. It's the first shop I've bought things from that didn't come pre-recommended, but man, I'm in love with some of the stuff I bought! My favorite thing about the shop is that you get to pick your own scent (from a loooong list) for a number of different products. My favorites of the ones I bought are the Watermelon and Butter Cream Shea Butter Lotions. Next time (because there will most DEFINITELY be a next time!) I think I'll try the sample sizes of Pumpkin Vanilla, Spearmint, Green Apple, Caramel and White Tea & Ginger. And buy some more of the Watermelon in full-size bottles to give away (and some to keep), because YUM!

I also tried some deodorants (also sample sizes), because why not? I can never find anything I really love in shops and if you get to pick your own scent, sign me up. Both scents I chose (cotton clean and violet) seem to be okay, but they don't wow me. I'll have to try again on those, I think. Maybe one of the essential oils, like grapefruit or lemon... Gingergrass?

GudonyaTOO also has a deodorant stick where you can pick your own scent. Since I really liked their Whipped Clean Body Washes, I think I'll try the Spa Fusion (cooling greens, invigorating ginger and thirst-quenching melons), which sounds right up my alley.



In fandom news, I already miss having TV to watch, and I'm hoping the leaked pilots start arriving early this year because I'm not sure how long I'll last otherwise. I just saw the Fringe trailer and I'm simultaneously going "JOSHUA JACKSON" at the top of my [internal] voice and grumbling "@$!/%#!JJAbrams @$!/%#! ..." (It's become its own dirty word).
