my baby shot me down

Numbered lists seem to be the best way to get back into the groove of things:

  1. I finished Chuck season 2. )

  2. I got my eReader yesterday, and even though I've only used it for a day, I already love it to death. I don't think I can ever go back to reading (long) fic on my computer again.

  3. This Strawberry Spinach Salad sounds really yummy. I'm going to have to try that some day.

  4. I uploaded some new icons to my Scrapbook.

  5. TAR finished another season. )

  6. I've had to take a few people off my reading filter because of spoilers, and I'm thinking of doing an flist cut. I mean, sure, it's just reaction spoilers, but just because you don't care about the show anymore (or love it so much you can't wait to Tell. Everyone. About. It), that doesn't mean I want to know. Though it seems silly to cut people right when TV is going into hybernation for the summer.

  7. Comedies are not making me dance with joy right now. The Office. ) The Big Bang Theory. ) HIMYM. )

  8. Everyone squeeing about Star Trek has made me dying to go see it, even though I think I've only watched one full episode of any of the franchises (a TNG episode where they go back in time? Or something?) Good job, flist!

  9. I'm taking the first week of June off and I can't wait! The best part is that it's vacation days I've saved from last year, so I still have five weeks of vacation coming to me after that. I'm going to try to find a cheap last minute trip to somewhere around the Mediterranean, and if that falls through, I'm going to redecorate my bedroom. Either way? So much win!

  10. Hi, Laura! =)

Jan. 19th, 2009

Even though I woke up more than ten hours ago, I still haven't rid myself of my morning sluggishness. Of course, this may have something to do with staying up all hours of the night, hemming trousers of all things. Yeah, I don't even know why I felt that that was something I needed to do at two am, but whatever.

And then I spent the day translating The Colbert Report, which I'm not convinced was the greatest of ideas considering how ineffectual my brain is today, but it's not like I had a choice. It's kind of fun translating the global edition (the credit word is "globallsy" in case you're curious), none of that censoring nonsense, so those "fucking squirrels" remained intact. =)

After almost 20 days of keeping track of TV episodes (new episodes only. Apparently I made this decision at some point, I'm not even sure when), I've averaged about 6.5 episodes a day. I'm pretty freaking impressed by that since I don't fell like I've been watching all that much TV. Of course, once I start marathoning any of the many many MANY shows I plan to rewatch, that number will go down. I think. I should probably never underestimate my powers of television watchage.

So, I just finished watching all of Titus (which I'd translated a few episodes of, but hardly seen any of the rest, as I discovered) and now I can't decide what's next. So therefore, a poll!

Also, I finally uploaded a bunch of new icons. I've been making loads lately (I have a lot of spots to fill), but it wasn't until this weekend that I felt I actually got some I could use. I hate losing my icon-making mojo like that, because the only way to get out of it is to work through it. And there's nothing worse than making sucky icon after sucky icon, thinking "what if they never stop sucking?". Whatever, they're uploaded now, and maybe I can start with a clean slate.

NPH, how so awesome?

I kinda love Dr. Horrible a lot, a lot, A LOT. )

I made a few icons. Because how could I not?

So. Much. TV. To. Watch. We're supposed to be on summer hiatus, right?

Can the asshats please stand up?

Cutting for those who are sick of Boldthrough '07. Which I assume is the majority. )

I couldn't get anything done today because the only thing that's engrossing enough to forget the above is making icons. So that's what I did. I needed to do a bunch of other stuff, but no cigar. The icons are uploaded here, as per usual. Though if you want to use the animated Colbert icon on InsaneJournal, this 92 kb version looks much nicer. Otherwise, I'm in a very Buffy mood lately, it seems. I like it! Maybe I should take this opportunity to do that rewatch I've been thinking of? =)
