Today is the day

I finally filed my tax return today, and barring any problems, should have a refund coming my way in about a month and a half. And I'm considering spending some of it on the exact same thing I splurged on with my last tax refund: an eReader. Since buying the first one about a year ago I've read about as many books as I did in the six-seven years before that combined. So I definintely consider it a worthwhile investment. And the one I have my eye on has the exact features I was looking for last year: touchscreen and 16 level grayscale, with the additional feature of wifi. And BeBook even has their own rebranded version (is it bad that I almost want to buy the BeBook rebrand just because I think the splash screen is so much prettier?)



GOING TO SEE IRON MAN 2 IN LESS THAN THREE HOURS! Woohoo! I haven't been this excited about seeing a movie in a long time. I just hope my high expectations don't lead to a big letdown if the movie doesn't live up to the original.



Since I decided against watching Modern Family this season, naturally I'm now translating it. NATURALLY. Because god is punishing me (god being my boss, of course). My biggest contention with the show was Phil, but I have to say I'm pretty okay with it anyway. I mean, I'm getting paid to watch it, so having to suffer through Phil isn't as bad as it could have been. (Just from the pilot, he ranked right up there with Michael Scott as embarrassing characters I couldn't stand to watch. And while the other episodes - I'm up to 1x03 - haven't been as bad, I'm pretty sure I could grow to loathe him.)

I'm a little surprised that it's labeled a mockumentary at Wikipedia, though. It doesn't feel at all as a mockumentary except for the talking heads they do. I haven't made it far into the series, but does the mockumentary format become more prominent at some point?



I have almost no TV to talk about because all I'm doing right now is reading regency period romance novels and watching Kdrama(s) recommended by typicrobots. Some of what I've watched since my last TV post:

I hardly post anymore, but I still feel like I'm much more active on LJ than I've been for a while now since I post daily to acapaday. I often have that sudden inspiration of posting about something, but then I always think that that one thing isn't enough and can never think of another subject to post about and then I just give up on the whole idea. I'm not sure why I have that block, I used to post about just about anything, just about any time I felt like it.

I was internet-less for almost a week and I've only now caught up (well, still one episode behind on Dexter, but other than that...), so I come bearing a meme:







And a few TV thoughts, while I'm at it:

I feel like I may have missed an episode of Castle somewhere along the line, so I think I'm going to track that down next.

In other TV news, even though I enjoyed the Cougar Town pilot, I haven't watched a single episode since. Eastwick was starting to bore me by episode 3, and when the cancellation came, it just became one less thing to catch up with. Still watching and enjoying: The Good Wife, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, White Collar, Castle, Dollhouse, etc. My reality shows are all losing their shine this season. I mean, it's been a steady decline over the past few seasons, but this season there hasn't been a truly excellent reality season in the bunch.

tv is my happy place. and my sad place.

This VM fic makes me so happy. It feels like the author is making sense out of all the things I never thought made sense in season 3. Dealt with in this chapter: Duncan, Piz, the FBI. But if you're allergic to WIPs, I'd recommend staying far away from this one. I think it's been over a year since the last update and we're only on chapter four. So, yeah...




Apparently, I have things to say about TV today.

I'm going to save Sons of Anarchy for a separate post so I have time to cap a few episodes and possibly include some visual aids.



I bought myself a new laptop with a touchscreen, and because the software provided had Twitter compatability, I got myself an account. I've been reading it and trying to get the flow of the thing, but I gotta say, I'm still not sure. Even in my one lonely tweet, I still wanted to add about another post's worth. So what's the point if I know myself enough to know I'm too wordy? But add away if you're so inclined! I've added some accounts I recognized, but I'm sure I've missed a ton.

The touchscreen though? AWESOME!

The Letter E: YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!

Two things that bug the everlivin' CRAP out of me:


  • Unless you're using it as an adjective (the premier episode), the word premiere is spelled with an E at the end. The meaning of premier when used as a noun is

    1. the head of the cabinet in France or Italy or certain other countries; first minister; prime minister.
    2. a chief officer.


    Season premiere, world premiere, series premiere. But Canada's premier.

  • It's not Bros Before Hoes! That means you put your bros before your gardening equipment, for crying out loud! It's Hos. Ho-ho-hos! Just...GAH!!!




And now that I've gotten that out of my system, last night's TV:

I still haven't watched Flash Forward, but I've got it cued up to watch right after Top Chef, which is what I'll be watching in five, four, three, two...

pretty!

I just wasted away most of my evening at Lovely Package. Collapse )

I also uploaded a bunch of icons and bought a crapload of DVD sets (Life s2, HIMYM s4, Terminator: TSCC s2, Fringe s1, Middleman, Criminal Minds s1, Dollhouse s1, Twin Peaks s1-2, The Big Bang Theory s1 and probably a few more I'm forgetting). Let me just say that my wallet is hurting pretty badly right now. But retail therapy has done me a world of good, so there is that. =)

Glee is imminent! And I couldn't be happier about it, even though I just can't seem to find it in me to 'ship Rachel/Finn, which seems to be the predominant pairing. And I finally realized that it's because, aside from finding Finn pretty boring, I just don't think he's a very good singer, and the very idea that he's even close to the same league as Rachel, talent-wise, is pretty laughable to me. BUT, there has only been one episode, so I'm willing to let them (and him) win me over.
