I feel like I hardly have enough going on right now to cobble together one entry. Let's see if this list of Things Going On Right Now proves me wrong:


  1. I'm siiiiiick. Ugh, I hate it so much. At least I'm over the hump (I think). From now on it'll just be a few weeks of coughing, sneezing and general mucus issues. Lovely!

  2. I'm currently translating season 2 of The Office, which is having the effect of making me fall in love with the show again. Not the new episodes (unfortunately), but I'd forgotten how much I loved it back in the day - and how much better Michael was before he became this caricature of a person. Collapse )

  3. As per usual, I'm watching lots of TV. *is currently at 332 episodes watched* Collapse ) Collapse ) Collapse ) Collapse )

  4. Today I got an email from Amazon.co.uk, informing me that the Pushing Daisies season 2 DVDs will be released on May 25th. I preordered that puppy so fast heads were spinning. Even though I still haven't watched the last aired episode (I don't want to be out of episodes to watch!), I think that three months gives me enough time to come to terms with watching the end of the series. *sniff*

  5. I've been making icons that I'm not hating on entirely. I'm not loving them either, but I consider this a definite step up from the months and months and months of crap.

  6. Oscar night, huh? For once, I've actually seen quite a few of the movies. Still can't bring myself to care very much. I mean, it's not as if it's the Emmys, which has just become a farce, but I just don't feel the Oscars are all that much more relevant at this point.

I'll be there for you...or not.


  1. Tonight, I made several icons I like in the same sitting, and I'm thinking this might mean I'll finally be able to get back to those requests. Which I, contrary to what one might think, haven't forgotten, I've just sucked in the icon-making department in the past few months.

  2. I've been rewatching Friends and I'm finally up to season 5 - my favorite. Which I've already rewatched once this year, but that didn't stop me from looking forward to it all through seasons 3 and 4. So far, the things that bugged me about the show towards the end there haven't reared their ugly heads, but I have a feeling I'll start getting annoyed in a season or two.

  3. Collapse )

  4. So, it seems Leno and Conan are returning in January, and I'm very conflicted. On the one hand, they're doing it to keep from laying people off, but on the other hand, how will I feel about the people who cross the picket line to appear on the show? And I'll most likely have to translate some episodes of Conan, and I'm not sure just how exactly to feel about that either. I'd much rather prefer that they did what Letterman is doing and took the WGA up on the offer for individual negotiations.

  5. I bought about half of my Christmas presents online this year, and I haven't bought any of the rest yet. Next year, I think I'll be buying them ALL online, because it's such a stress-free way of doing it.

  6. Speaking of Christmas, I'm thinking of taking two days' vacation time and getting 12 days off this Christmas. I love how my birthday is a holiday in this country. *g*

  7. I keep meaning to post a game of some sort, but the trivia game I started coming up with only has THREE questions, and the movie cap game I thought about posting on Friday just sort of fizzled when I couldn't work up the energy to cap the movies I intended to use. But I'm determined to post one of the games (or some other game) sometime this week. Even though I imagine there won't be a lot of people around to play, those of us stuck at work this week will probably need some distraction.

  8. Belated happy birthday, Laura! =)

*tears hair out*

I think I screwed myself but good with that song rewrite, because it's still stuck in my head. Going on five days now! And it's not even the original Brady Bunch song, it's my version. (I honestly can't work out if that makes it better or worse.)



Summers are supposed to be the season of little-to-no TV, but these past two weeks have been insane. What I've been able to watch since I last posted:
