*gen - tiffany

Ten bits of randomness.

1. I finally have a fully-functional HD TiVo!!! Yes, that warrants three exclamation points, especially since my godawful Comcast DVR died on Monday, taking with it all my recorded programs (including all of this season of BSG). Also, the corpses in CSI:NY are even yuckier in high-definition.

2. DVD watching: I saw and *loved* Persepolis last night. Today I'm marathoning Burn Notice, via Netflix.

3. Oh, goodie. I haven't watched any of those awful Bravo or MTV reality shows, but I might have to tune in for the new one, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, though thank god none of them live in my zip code.

4. Vulture asks "Is Shaq's 'Tell Me How My Ass Taste' the song of the summer?" I had to include it just for that title.

5. Fascinating story in Slate about a writer who spends two weeks working in a day care.

6. Michel Gondry picks 25 classic music videos. I agree with many of his choices, though I also *love* his own. Bjork's "Bachelorette" is one of my all-time faves.

7. Saturn Award winners have been announced. I'll refrain from the Hewitt snarking and ask how do some of those even qualify as "science fiction"?

8. The Atlanta H&M opened while I was out of town, and I went down there Tuesday and bought two great purses. I was thrilled to find some with long shoulder straps, because I really dislike those short handles that are popular now. I prefer to sling my purses like messenger bags.

9. I finally figured out how to structure a post-"Revelations" K/L fic. Now I just have to write it. ;)

10. I finished knitting two new socks. Collapse )
