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". So that's what I did today...
HIMYM - I caught up last weekend and I'm enjoying this season so far, but I'm not invested AT ALL. Oh, what havoc they wreak with the fangirl mind when they screw up an entire season...
Fringe - I'm really enjoying this season! And especially Olivia! Which is noteworthy since I thought Anna Torv sucked in the first season. But retconning the suck to be a personality quirk due to the experiments worked. I totally jumped on board and lo and behold, she's actually good now! Alterna!Olivia really freed her, acting-wise, I think.
The Good Wife - You know, I was never really on board the Alicia/Will train last season, but I am now. A couple of episodes back, things just clicked for me with those two and you are now looking at a bona fide 'shipper.
Community - What the hell was that episode before this week's? Weird, much? And not in a good way. But other than that I'm happy with this season so far, even though I do get what people are saying about doing away with all those messy "relationships" and "feelings". It just hasn't gotten to the point where it's bothering me yet.
The Walking Dead - I still haven't watched the second episode. I found the first one to be really enjoyable, because while horror doesn't work on me, dread apparently works like a charm. I just haven't been in the mood for it, and then I read some less-than-favorable things and...well...
Kdramas - I ran into some trouble when I watched a long succession of sucky dramas. It got old pretty fast. So I'm currently keeping current with only one Kdrama - Dr. Champ - and it's airing right now (ending next week). I think they're dragging out the love story too long (HELLO! We're at episode 14 and the female lead still fancies herself in love with someone else? WTF?!), but other than that I'm loving it.
I am also up to date on TBBT, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, TAR, Criminal Minds, Lie to Me, Top Chef: Just Desserts and Cougar Town, mainly thanks to a few marathons over the past couple of weeks. And Being Erica, but since anything I have to say about it will be spoilery, I'm going to talk about it below.
