Vacation!

So, I got back from Tenerife about three weeks ago, but I've been putting off posting because I wanted to post some images and my Photoshop is completely shot (and my computer isn't far behind). Of course, since I just bought a new couch, I can't afford a new computer and the accompanying Photoshop until next month at the earliest. Collapse )

On vacation, I read nine books (I think. Most of them were my reread of Harry Potter), watched seven seasons of television (Lost Girl season 2, which I loved, Teen Wolf season 1 and some of season 2, which I'm extremely meh about and which I haven't even bothered to catch up on since I came back, The Walking Dead season 1, which actually started to get interesting towards the end and which I will catch up on...some day, 10 Things I Hate About You, which I enjoyed okay, but I wish they had focused less on Bianca, who bored me, as well as three seasons of Design Star), and managed to burn myself on the very last day. How I managed to burn myself on the last day when I didn't burn myself at all in the three previous weeks I'll never know, but burn myself I did.




When I got back I spent the rest of my vacation catching up on TV:

I also watched Leverage season 4 (seriously, the only reasons to watch this show are Hardison-Parker-Eliot. The others could go in the wood chipper for all I care) and The Closer season 7 (which ended well, I think. I tried the first episode of Major Crimes, but it could barely hold my attention.)

Actually, I've watched a ton of other stuff, but I'm already bored typing out my vague thoughts about things. What I need is a freakin' 'ship to obsess about! Does anything this fall look promising?




Oh hey, did you hear? ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT STARTED SHOOTING. Eeeeee, so excited!

Penny can!

I got back from my island vacation a couple of weeks ago, but hiatus doldrums have put the kibosch on my posting anything. Basically, it all boils down to this: Collapse )



I hadn't really been inspired to post until I was emailed the link to this today: Collapse )
YOU'RE WELCOME. WHO SAYS PEOPLE NO LONGER MAKE GREAT ART?



I caught up on my shows in three days, though pretty much the only thing that aired during my absence was a bunch of reality shows. And The Good Wife, for some reason. My reactions, in short:

I can't believe there's only one more episode of The Good Wife left! And it's not for another two weeks! I watched the preview and OMG! Collapse )

In sickness and in...well, just sickness, really,

Got sick last week and while not the most fun thing in my life, I'm pretty happy it happened last week when there was still time to get all better by next week. Because next week I start my three week vacation! Woohoo!

It turns out that once the work week was over (and believe you me, it needed to be over about three days before it actually was over, but I didn't have the luxury of taking even one day off) all I wanted to do was bundle up on my couch and create weird crap in Photoshop. So that's what I did. And then I figured I should put it somewhere so I got myself a Tumblr. THIS IS WHAT SICKNESS HAS DONE TO ME, DON'T JUDGE. It's here:



Let me know who you are so I can follow some more people (I only added a few I recognized either through name or icon).

(Tumblr is weird, y'all! I hardly had any people I was following or that were following me, but people still "liked" my posts and stuff. How does that even happen? Tags?)



But enough about fever-induced delirious episodes that lead to Unwise Decisions, what I'm really here to talk about is BOOKS. I'm going to read so much on my vacation you don't even know! (Mainly because I'm going to the Canary Islands and I'll be offline/without TV for the duration.) So what to read? Collapse )

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!
