'Tis the season

The new television season has hit like a ton of bricks and I pretty much crumbled right away. So. Behind. But I've made a valiant attempt to catch up lately.

In non-television news:


  • I joined Ello and have some invites in case anyone is interested.

  • I capped the Veronica Mars movie.

  • I'm currently "enjoying" a self-imposed spending freeze and I already have a shopping list a mile long for November 1, which will most likely begin with a trip to Lush to BUY ALL THE THINGS (especially Snow Fairy, because I've been saving the last few drops of last year's bottle hoping that they would bring it back soon).

Happy 10 Year LJ-versary to MEEEEE

Today it's ten years since I signed up for LJ! Wheee!



It's been a truly crappy week, so instead, let's focus on the good things in life, shall we? Specifically, my favorite recent purchases:

I've tried a few new pilots:

I've dropped a few shows:

I keep meaning to cut Happy Endings because I've never really taken to it, but all of a sudden I've watched an entire season, just from inertia. Maybe next year? If it even gets renewed, that is.

Looking forward to quite a few more:

Next week we have Veep and Defiance starting. And Awkward, but I'm not sure if I'll watch this season. I've also got a few episodes of Top of the Lake, but I haven't gotten around to them yet. And, of course, the Arrested Development excitement is ever-present.

I'm also thinking of trying out House of Cards and catching up on Nikita. Anyone got any other recs? What was Banshee like?

Next item on the To Buy list

So, I bought the dark blue Guide Vogs and I kinda love them a lot. A bit on the small side, but a few hours wear around the house helped a lot (can't wear them out of the house yet. The ice may have melted, but I'd freeze my toes off).

Next on the agenda: a camera bag! I have one of the usual nylon thingies, but I kinda hate it a lot. It's bulky, cheap-looking and not versatile at all. I want something that doesn't look like a camera bag, but will still protect it and be comfortable to wear for hours on end. I know, should be easy, right؟

In other news, I've been watching way too much TV. Thoughts on a few things:

This is getting to be a problem

I feel like it's been so long since I made a TV update post that if I started to write up my thoughts on various shows I'd never be able to stop. So instead I'm going to sneak in this post on a Saturday evening when it's pretty dead around here and maybe that way I can work my way up to talking about the important stuff (television, that is).



So, shoes.

I'm not a shoe person. When it comes to accessories, purses are my weakness (I've bought two this month alone - one just a few hours ago). But that was before I found Fluevogs. I don't think I've ever gotten all weak with WANT over shoes before, but with these shoes I practically drool while looking at the web site. 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!

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.

Things that are awesome

I saw this linked on Twitter this morning. Can't remember who linked it, though. Probably txvoodoo, she has all the best links. Anyway, TANGENT.

Also, West Wing cast reunion. AND! Alias! Spy!Daddy and Spy!Daughter, together again (and I'm glad that was it, because that reunion could have been aaaawkward). For some reason, though, I got the biggest kick out of the Back to the Future reunion.

Getting my charm on

My mother just won two Pandora charm bracelets at auction and she's giving me one of them, so I blew off work this afternoon to drool over charms at the Pandora web site.

In other news, new TV is just around the corner, which to me only means More Ways in Which I Will Fall Behind on TV Due to My All-Consuming Kdrama Addiction. I think that's why I've been reluctant to seek out what new shows to pick up, but now that they're actually HERE, I guess it's time to give it some serious thought. So far I've got:



  • Nikita (saw the pilot and am willing to keep watching even thought it didn't blow me away).

  • The Walking Dead (ZOMBIES? I'M SO THERE).

  • Running Wilde (GOB and Felicity - together at last! I mean, haven't we all pretty much been waiting for this day?)

  • No Ordinary Family This show just sounds fun and I could do with a bit of fun.



And sadly, that's pretty much it. What shows should I be watching? Anyone excited about anything else?



I think I'm going to take my newly acquired Being Erica season 2 DVDs and do a marathon this weekend to gear up for the premiere next week. And maybe even do some capping? I feel like I'm going to need both an Erica and an Erica/Kai icon pretty soon.
