- badly 'shopped pics of fave TV characters on mythical animals (why no manticores? I think Angel would make a great manticore.)
- how Will Ferrell and Jack Davenport are totally in love (hell, I can't even talk about that on my FLIST - heh)
- do not use the word "flist"
- remember to DO the action and not mentally think (asterisk)- action -(asterisk)
- oh, or talk about MYSELF because no one is interested because it's my HUSBAND'S COMPANY. Feh.
Open bar, here I come.
In other news, I AM IN LOVE WITH NEW SHOWS, OMG. (Okay, new to me, you lucky Brits have known about these for YEARS.) Number one: Ultraviolet still continues to rock my slippers. (No socks this morning.) SPOILER FOR EP3: anyone else notice that the crucifix around her neck caused the miscarriage? Am I just slow and you all knew that? Got Mr. S into the show and he loves it. What's not to love? It's fantastic, smart, and engaging.
WITH ONE EXCEPTION. I, as you mostly know, am a science nerd. AS SUCH: I am bugged by watching someone put a thing under a microscope and pretend to know what they're looking at when a) there is no cover to the glass slide, b) immersion oil was not put on the cover, and c) THE FRIGGIN' MICROSCOPE ISN'T TOUCHING THE SLIDE. *pushes glasses back up nose, adjusts pocket protector* Sorry.
THAT is precisely why I will NEVER, EVER watch CSI. Nice "mood lighting" in a friggin' LABORATORY. Real easy to study sexy petri dishes and lothario bacteria under seductive slides. Wow. I AM a nerd.
I FINALLY got my hands on "This Life," which may be the best "soap opera" in the history of twenty-something soap operas. It is NOTHING like an American show - example: Melrose Place, which is embarassing to admit to watching. See: Seinfeld. Side note, the BEST George Costanza line ever came from that episode where Jerry says he'll take a lie detector test to prove he never watched Melrose. Elaine: Who do you think you are? Costanza? George is going to "train" Jerry how to lie: "If you believe it, it's true." Sums up the entire character right there.
Where was I? Oh - the CONSTANT SEX of "This Life." Granted, I wanted to do everyone's hair, but the show is so smart and interesting and real and raw and did I mention the CONSTANT SEX?? Jack Davenport, naked, on his back, skank whore riding him with wanton abandon, but still wearing her dress. He's whining for her to take it off in that deep, sexy voice of his and I was absolutely blushing. Ahem. And the show is very smart, too. (But the sex!! And gay sex! Het sex! Real people! Not Hollywood-ized!) I only have Series 1, but they are apparently both coming out in a boxed set in February. If ANYONE knows of series 2 out there somewhere, I would pay good money to get my mitts on it. Amazon.co.uk doesn't have it. If anyone is interested in getting Series 1 and has bittorrent, I can get you the hook-up. cherusha yours is on the way to your permanent address, btw.
ENOUGH OF TV SHOWS that only three of you are into. Who loves Sean Connery? Oh, come on. THIS IS FREAKING HILARIOUS. I end up talking like Sir Sean for daysh afterwardsh. Why do you people not like the funny? ARE YOU TRULY MADE OF STONE? Like it's hard to friend a comm and show your support. It's not like it's a spammy comm. *single, perfect tear of woe* *loves a_list_celebs liek woah*
Another example of the funny: Jen Aniston has Costner locked in her closet - because really, he's a danger to himself, people - and she decides to dump him off on Will Ferrell. Here are the instructions for his care. Heeee!
So. New clothes to purchase, avoidance of the bitter wind outside a must (shush. it's bitter for my warm Texan blood), and locate some holiday cheer. It doesn't seem like X-Mas is just around the corner. Feels weird this year... Like I've missed a few weeks somewhere. Time for good music to shake my thang to and get some ENERGY. *slumps further in chair*
