The proverbial clock is ticking.

I started to write a long post about my sleep habits, but I'm too tired. I know that doesn't qualify as irony, but I choose to think of it as such. Damn you, Alanis. Instead, I'll rant again about Katee on 24. Collapse )

(Pointless, repetitive posts like this are what happens when I challenge myself to post every day for a month.)

TV is finally good again!

After far too long of a wait, it's time for another new episode of Law & Jamie Order: UK! Oh, how I've missed the prettiness known as Jamie Bamber. For those who haven't yet seen it, Collapse )

And in the interest of promoting (former) Pilotlove, here are a couple of watermarked pics of Katee at today's TCA press conference and party. Collapse )

"In Canada, summer is the last week and a half of July."

Me again!

1. boom_queen found video of a TV Guide photo shoot for "TV's sexiest stars", with Katee Sackhoff and Jared Padalecki. I assume it'll be the issue that comes out next week. Collapse )

2. Tonight's How I Met Your Mother was just delightful. Ah, Miss Sparkles.

3. txvoodoo linked to My Betty, which is just ... YIKES.

4. I haven't talked much about knitting lately. I skipped my queue for two weeks to make a pair of socks for a friend. Also, I'm almost done with the second Wisterious sock, and I'm making a quick bag for Mother's Day. While I love knitting socks, the problem is that I tend to wear fairly conservative shoes in blacks and browns, or else sandals in the summer. Don't have anything that would GO with a pair of purple/peachy socks. Hmm. Anyway, Collapse )

5. Only twenty-four more days of school! On the other hand, the CRCT begins on Wednesday. Tons of pressure there, and I'm as sick of reviewing as my students are. At least it'll all be over soon....

Have a Nice Day!

1. Not sure whether I'm grumbly or cheerful today. At this point, it could go either way.

2. This weekend is the Atlanta Juggling Festival. I'm strangely intrigued and might go. Anyone want to join me on Saturday afternoon?

3. Katee has finally made Go Fug Yourself. Aww, our little girl has arrived! That shininess is a bit scary, though I'm giggling at the reappearance of the sparkly princess shoes from the S3 promo shots. (BTW, when the hell will we get the S4 ones? *sigh*)

4. Last night I was all excited to watch Lost, then realized that, whoops, it was a rerun. And I'm still a bit puzzled why media bloggers will not shut up about the premiere, yet I've hardly seen anyone here mention it. As I told txvoodoo in my similar post a few weeks ago, I guess it's just not a "fandomish" show - at least, not the type of fandom we usually see on LJ.

5. Here's an article/rant that made us laugh yesterday: Why are bank security questions so monstrously stupid? Amen. I especially hate the ones with subjective answers. Green and orange are equally my favorite colors. What happens if I submit "green" at sign-up, then later answer "orange"? Will I get locked out of my account? I don't even remember the names of ANY of my teachers (which is pretty sad given my career.) Yeah, I undersatnd that subjective questions offer greater security, but WOW, how annoying.

Okay, it's off to the salt mines. At least this year's still going GREAT, and the kids are working on projects all day. :)

"I think someone hacked me."

And so begins Pushing Daisies Watch. Or, rather, "Watch everyone else on Earth love this show while I stand in the back and scream!" At least, that's what I'd assumed. I've said before that the pilot really got on my nerves because the cutesiness was over-the-top, to the point of feeling manipulative. ("Aren't we clever! And whimsical! And adorable!") Check out Mo Ryan's blog for a more eloquent version of why I went into this dreading how it would inevitably become The It Show among critics and LJ friends, while I grew increasingly resentful and bitter. Collapse )

And now to the main event. Bionic Woman: Was Katee hot? Yes. Was she awesome? Yes. Do I care about anything else? No. Collapse )

Can't remember where, but someone said they wished Katee's scenes would be posted to YouTube so they could watch them and skip everything else. I love a good video-editing project, so I fired up the TiVo and clipped Sarah's scene from tonight. As always, the quality isn't perfect (I have no idea why it ghosts stuff like the Target commercial), but for now it'll suffice.

-- Sarah's scene: watch at DailyMotion | download from SendSpace
-- Next week's preview: watch at DailyMotion | download from SendSpace

Oh, and before I forget -- while looking through EntWkly, I noticed that Lifetime is showing Katee's How I Married My High School Crush this Friday at 9pm, for those of you who missed it the first time around.

ETA: One more Katee thing! daybreak777 linked to TV Guide's video of their BW photo shoot. Love how Katee says she'll put "knows how to knit" on her resume. I uploaded a bunch of screencaps to my LJ gallery. Collapse )

Katee on the Daily 10.

asta77 posted a heads-up that Katee appeared tonight on E!'s "Daily 10". Very cute interview in which she talked a bit about BW, and then learned how to surf. In a wetsuit. Hee! You can download the .avi at Sendspace, or check out the Collapse )

Also, Katee showed up again on tonight's Cort & Fatboy radio show. It's 22 minutes long, and you can download the .mp3 here. The first half is mostly just silly chatter about various things including BW, salmon, Buffy, and her trailer (I think she says hello to Kandyse at one point. ;) She seems to think SciFi will go with the split season. If you want to avoid anything even remotely spoilery, stop listening at around 15:00. At that point, she drops a few Collapse )

Perky nips, studly Kiwis, and delurking days.

sinful_caesar (thanks!) has hi-res photos of Katee at the TV Guide party, looking very Veronica-Lake-glam. Good shoe choice, and ya gotta love a dress with pockets. I love how the unfortunate bust-dart placement makes her look like she has very perky nipples. ;) Also, txvoodoo has an awesome Emmys gallery, including two pics of the Conchords guys. Yay! Oh, Brit. You're such a stud.

Okay, I posted this the other night, but LJ somehow screwed up the code beyond recognition, so I had to private-ize it. I found this meme on bop_radar's LJ. I do Delurking Days every few months, but I couldn't resist another one -- though I did change a few of the questions.

The pretty... and the not-so-pretty.

After saying yesterday that I suck at sewing.... I MADE A PURSE! And it looks gorgeous. So awesome, in fact, that I almost put the pic out here in the open so I could show off. Then I decided it was too big for friends-pages, and anyway, posting un-cut photos is rather annoying. Therefore, click on the cut-tag for Collapse )

And to keep this post from being all about my obsessive craftiness, how about some fandom snark? dryope posted photos of some of the BSG cast -- and a few Stargate folks -- at a Comic-Con party Saturday night. Katee mostly looks great... except for a very unfortunate fashion choice that just might eclipse Jamie's green flip-flops for sheer WTF-ery. Collapse )

ETA: On the plus side, we have Collapse )

ETA2: And EntWkly has a long video interview that starts with Katee and continues with bits from nearly everyone on SciFi, including Atlantis, Eureka, and then, of all people, Sarah Silverman. A few BSG spoilers at the very end -- just stop watching after the second clip with Mary McDonnell. :)
