But I've seen this one all over my flist and it's the kind I like to do, so here we are, folks. Face to face. A couple of silver spoons. [It's all 80s all the time with me, what can I say. I'm hoping to find we're two of a kind. Making it show. Making it grow, together! We're gonna find our way.... Together! I could keep going on, but I'll spare you. For those who have no idea what I'm doing, here you go.]

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Like you there and so and so and whatshername. We're tight, like 10 toes in a sock. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

And obviously, there may be some questions I won't answer because it might be seriously cheeky or far too personal. I won't reveal my kids names, my husband's name or work place, that kind of thing. BUT I WILL REVEAL MY SOUL, you only have to ask. Lol.

In other news, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia continues to be one of my all-time favorite comedy shows. If you're not watching, you are missing out big time. Ditto on Glee, which I don't think is being viewed the way it's meant to by some. Huh. And Dollhouse - holy crap, the actor that plays Victor is maybe one of the best character actors I've seen on a TV show, no joke. The guy's range is astounding. And the show is DE-STUR-BING in a great way. Man, I freaking love it. I know it's polarizing, but I like it, I'm bothered and fascinated and squicked and entertained, which is a good thing, imo. Who else is watching FastForward? LOVE. IT. I'm not caught up on this past week's ep, btw. Also, I hear Breaking Bad is great, but I just don't have time for another show just yet. Half of my agency is in that show, too. That and Friday Night Lights. OH THAT I COULD BOOK THAT GIG!! One of my acting buddies is on the upcoming season and sent me pictures with him and Coach Taylor and I died a little from jealousy.

Oh! And while it's not brilliant, I'm enjoying Community. Mostly because I have a total crush on Joel McHale. And with lines like "I think anti-racism is the new racism" making me snort out, I'll keep watching. (And then Chevy Chase went to make a cup of "Condoleeza Rice coffee." They had a color wheel from Seal to Seal's teeth. LOLOLOLOL.) [ETA] And I forgot one of my FAVORITES: Modern Family. I freaking love that show. I think it's smart, funny, sweet at times, and I love how they constantly turn stereotypes around. Funny stuff, and I can't wait for more baby Lily/two gay daddy shenanigans.

Rambling on, it's cold and rainy and soup/cheesy bread weather. YAY!

*total Entrenous shout-out there. Feel better, sweets!

How do you find the time to do everything you do? No, I'm serious.

There is something I will always remember about you - and that is how WE met. I posted about the stupid Outside Pride email I got talking about how the Cold Case ep of the night before shouldn't have seen the light of day because it condoned GAY RELATIONSHIPS and, oh! his kids were watching it. Apparently you got that same email, and someone pointed me in your direction and I friended you. I always find your points of view interesting, and sometimes challenging. I enjoy your sense of humor, very much.

And you got me addicted to Dollhouse. I'm trying to cut BACK for pete's sake!

I don't do everything, that's how. :D I have a schedule that I've made for myself for chores. If I don't get the floors mopped on Tuesday, they don't get mopped again until the next scheduled time, Saturday. I've learned to live with a little disarray. (Oh, and I'm constantly on the go. I'm a little hyper. No, really. Hee.)

UGH, wasn't that email the worst!? And the antagonism I got for it! Well, everyone banded together on that one, and it was so heartening.

I know what you mean, I need to not have TV, either! Thank goodness for DVRs.

I totally agree with you about It's Always Sunny and Dollhouse. The former is what gets me through my week...just four more days until the next new episode!

As for Glee, I feel like I'm missing something. I've only seen one episode, but I thought it was horrific. As in, all of the characters are really, really horrible, unlikable people. Jane Lynch was great, the writing isn't bad, and I can see why it's attractive to people, but oh my god, is there a woman on that show that's not a disturbed piece of trash? I can't handle all the lying around the pregnancy and the non-pregnancy. I don't like the way the guys are written as the innocent rubes to the lying, insane wenches in their lives. And I know that's weird coming from a person who loves It's Always Sunny, but with Sunny, you're not supposed to like the people. You're certainly not supposed to sympathize or agree with their actions. And they're all equally horribly to each other. I got a completely different vibe from Glee, and I'm not sure I could ever watch it with, well, glee (or voluntarily).
Oct. 26th, 2009 04:51 pm (UTC)
Oh my god, Charlie, Mac, Dennis and Dee make me SO HAPPY. Later, boners. I love that show.

I had a talk with someone about Glee - to me, it's opera. Over the top, modern opera. Someone else was complaining about all of the women being horrid, but I think it's equal - the men are just as bad. But hey, not everything hits me with happy, so I get it. I don't think we're supposed to really like everyone on Glee, and I don't think we're supposed to hate them all, either. I will say that Kurt's coming out was maybe one of the more touching things I've seen on TV, but they do need to quit the whole gay means you're girly thing. (Which is why I love love LOVE Modern Family, I need to add that up there. Best gay couple ever.)

What's happening on the book front? When can I buy Oh my heck?

Aaaand, cos I'm greedy, do you have any other tomes in the works, like say Stephenie Meyer, wut's she all about? or maybe that one writes itself.
Oct. 26th, 2009 06:51 pm (UTC)
NOTHING is happening, woe. Rejection, rejection, rejection. I need to either seriously overhaul it and not make it my voice to sell it, or I need to figure out if I want to keep on with it. *sad face*

I'm going to do NaNo again this year to try and knock out a novel idea I've had kicking around for about 6 years now. We'll see if it morphs into something else, I have GOT to get my writing muscles back in shape.

Okay, here goes: what is your eye colour? I'm serious. I'm having trouble seeing it on the photos.

And I'd really like to watch Fast Forward, but knowing how I can go on TV binges, I'm watching only one show at a time. Right now that's Shion No Oh, an anime about a mute shogi player.
Oct. 26th, 2009 06:52 pm (UTC)
I have chocolate brown orbs. :D I used to have black eyes, but they're fading the older I get, and now they're good ol' fashioned brown.

You know, I think that Fast Forward is going to be around for a while, and because it's a LOST-type format, it might be better for some folks to wait until they can watch it all unfold on DVD.

I know you like a wide variety of music, so what was the first rock concert you ever attended?

I'm just back from a week without television, so I'm behind on "Dollhouse." This season has been gripping. "FastForward" is fascinating, too. "Mad Men" is absolutely pitch perfect, great television. Somehow the half hour sitcoms have fallen off of my schedule. I already watch waaaay too much television as it is.

It really is rainy and soup/cheesy bread weather. Too bad the fridge is too full to warrant an afternoon cooking.
Oct. 26th, 2009 06:55 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, first concert. That's a tough one because my parents were musicians, so we went to concerts (classical, rock, country) with them all the time. HOWEVER. I'm going to assume you mean me, solo, my preference in rock music concert. In which case that would be The Cure, and - as you would expect - it was freaking awesome.

I have Mad Men recorded, but I've yet to sit down and watch it. Thanksgiving break is looking promising... Gargh.

That's how my weekend was - too much food already there inhibiting me from cooking new things. But not today, whee!
Oct. 26th, 2009 07:21 pm (UTC)
Ah, Glee. How do I love thee. Reminds me of high school in that I was a drama club/choir/band geek who was only noticed by boys (and girls) in that same circle. Except, you know, the people on the show actually have talent. XD

And where the heck is John Oliver on Community?! He's the only reason I started watching it and he was only in the first two eps, am I right?
Oct. 26th, 2009 07:50 pm (UTC)
He's not a regular cast member, but he's appeared on three eps? I may be wrong. I'm right there with you on the John Oliver love.

I feel like being random.
What other countries have you been to (if any)?
What is your favorite Star Trek movie?
Pie, cake, or fudge?
Toilet paper over the front of the roll or around the back of it?
Any tattoos or piercings?
Single most indispensable kitchen tool?
How goes the reading list?
Favorite and least favorite cartoons?
Favorite and least favorite reality TV shows?

...I don't really watch much TV, but that's because 1) I am a full-time students, 2) we don't have all the cool channels, and 3) I *rarely* get remote control in my house of 6 people. Esp. considering my dad doesn't like shows with too many women or too many gay people-- because he is a closet homophobe (he really thinks he's not because he accepts and loves his gay relatives, but dude, srsly). Although this is just a knee-jerk reaction when it comes to lesbians, naturally. EPIC EYEROLL!

Anyway. LUCKILY I HAVE THE TVSHARE COMM. Also, anime share sites. *dancedancedance* I'm downloading full series/seasons to watch when I'm all bedridden this Christmas from my breast reduction I've been waiting for for years and years.
Oct. 26th, 2009 07:55 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, nice long list!
1. Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, Austria.
3. Fudgey pie cake? Man, that's a toughy. I think I'd have to say fudge, but only by a smidge.
4. Over the FRONT. I'll turn it around it I find it the other way.
5. Yes, tattoo on my foot, almost 20 years old, too. WOW. That makes me feel really old.
6. My all clad cookware.
7. Slow going, but going. Finished Last Unicorn, am back to reading grown up books [The Family.]
8. Calvin and Hobbes/Far Side as my favorite, least favorite would be something a long the lines of "Love Is" or "Cathy." Trite weirdness, imo.

[Unless you meant TV cartoons, in which case favorites are South Park, Metalocalypse, Squidbillies, least favorite are noisy, spazzy ones with no thought to them, like Ed Edd & Eddie. KILL ME.]
9. Favorite: Project Runway, closely followed by Top Chef. Least Favorite: Anything involving a Kardashian.

I know of your love for bad fanfiction, and thought that maybe you might get a kick out of this:

Oct. 26th, 2009 08:58 pm (UTC)
I love Amazing Larry! He looks so shocked when Pee Wee calls him out. :o

What's your go-to meal when you've had a crazy day, the kids are whiny, and dinner needs to be on the table, yo?

And what's your ideal meal to cook for company, either something you tend to make when having people over, or a menu that is so super awesome and full of deliciosity you've been planning it in your head for ages but have yet to make it?
Oct. 26th, 2009 09:00 pm (UTC)

I am totally LOVING Glee and Dollhouse. Yes to everything you said about Victor - he's totally, utterly convincing, no matter what he does. And this week, Sierra with the stabbity stab! If I'd been her, I don't think I would have felt one bit guilty.

Also, did you see Mad Men last night? Asdfghjkl@!

I don't need to ask you questions because I've seen that root cellar in your house where you keep all the dead bodies. And really, once you've seen that, what else is there to know? Except maybe how to survive on zombie meat once the apocalypse comes.
Oct. 26th, 2009 10:49 pm (UTC)
I'm not watching Mad Men! I have it recorded, but I've not been able to start watching it yet. And OH MY GOD, Sierra's story line!! Jesus, that was a ROUGH one.

And the thing people don't realize is that you FREEZE zombie meat so you don't pick up the virus when you give them a taste of their own medicine. *taps temple* You have to be prepared, you know?

I am TOTALLY going to watch V! The twin birth scene from the original has haunted me FOR YEARS. Can't wait to see it without Freddy Krueger as the nice alien, hee!

I really enjoyed The Last Unicorn. How could I not? Such a great story, I thought the book had just enough depth to it to make it even better than my beloved movie. <3

I couldn't imagine them getting rid of her - she's used so much and the actress is really great. I think the actors that aren't Eliza are really outstanding on the show. Just a great cadre of unknowns (for the most part.)
Oct. 26th, 2009 11:07 pm (UTC)
I am absolutely addicted to Glee, and I'm glad to see so many people loving it as much as I do! I recently got several friends hooked on it. And while I go back and forth with my opinion of Dollhouse as a show, I am always, without fail, astounded by Enver/Victor - playing Dominic last season? The recent serial killer to Kiki intensity to hilarity? I'm blown away. Also loving FlashForward.
Oct. 27th, 2009 12:33 am (UTC)
OH MY GOD, his Kiki dancing had me howling with laughter. He just WAS that Kiki character, and to switch around like he did... Awesome. Absolutely awesome.
Oct. 27th, 2009 12:06 am (UTC)
I love Glee and I agree that a lot of people seem to be missing the point.

And Fast Forward keeps sucking me in harder.

Some day I will do a post about Dollhouse. But yes, the actor who plays Victor nails every character they've thrown at him.
Oct. 27th, 2009 12:32 am (UTC)
I know that Dollhouse is polarizing my flist with extreme hate or love, but it just hits my interests and thinky places big time. Enver, the Victor actor, does just what you said and nails whatever he's given. And given the main device of the show, it's a must! (Cough, I'm looking at you, Eliza.)
Oct. 27th, 2009 12:09 am (UTC)
I've heard both good and bad things about "Glee". As such I'm in two minds about whether to watch it. On the one hand, I have to be in a very specific mood to stomach love drama, on the other, I've heard the show has moments of brilliance that make up for any failings tenfold.

My question:
What is your favourite animated movie of all time? It can be anything for whatever reason.
Oct. 27th, 2009 12:31 am (UTC)
The love drama bits are campy, so it's not taking itself seriously as a show in that realm.

Ooooh, that is really really hard. It might be a toss between Toy Story and the animated Bashki version of The Lord of the Rings. No matter what, if those are on, I'm watching. (And I have to throw a third one in there because I'm just crazy like that, South Park, Bigger, Longer and Uncut. LOL.)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
