The fall television season is upon us and I'm trying to figure out what to watch. Videos embedded under the cut. )

The one returning show I'm looking forward to above all others is Homeland. But I'll be watching tons of other stuff, as per usual.

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... )

Other things that have happened:

  • I finally got myself that new cell phone I was talking about a few months back! And yes, I ended up getting an HTC Legend after all. I LOVE IT. Don't know how I ever lived without it. I've read two books on it so far, I've got two True Blood episodes awaiting viewing, I've become addicted to Mancala, Reversi and Unblock Me (any other game app recs would be most welcome!) and it's the only way I've been able to stay sorta up-to-date on my Twitter feed for the past two weeks.

  • I've been fairly good about keeping up with TV. Well, considering... Reaction spoilers mostly. )

  • I uploaded a bunch of icons today.

So, I was paying my bills the other day, and I started wondering what it's like elsewhere. I can't imagine not having e-billing, giro payments, and online banking in general. Plus, paying all your bills in one go at the end of each month makes me happy. But I get the feeling that the US is still stuck in that same old "check-is-in-the-mail" archaic bill-paying that was the norm when I lived there twenty years ago. Therefore, a poll! )

Speaking of bill-paying, I'm only a few weeks away from being completely free of credit card debt, so of course I'm looking at ways to spend all that extra moolah. And I think I found it! I'm leaning towards this one, though to be honest, it's more because it comes in a pretty light blue color than for the battery life. Does anyone have any recommendations? Words of wisdom?

I think my eReader purchase has already paid for itself, because I'm reading more books than ever. Since the beginning of May alone, I've read 15 books. 15 books! I didn't read 15 books all of last year! (Granted, it's been mostly chick lit and easy fare, but still!)

Except, reading all these actual books instead of fic has made me realize that I've probably averaged about 100 books a year, just in fic. So I'm not reading that much more than usual right now, I'm just reading other things.

Epiphany is just like any other day...

...except you get to have the day off. So I took a drive and ended up at Drottningholm. I parked, grabbed my camera and went for a walk. )

Afterwards I went grocery shopping and in the fifteen minutes I was in the store it had gotten dark and started snowing quite heavily. While it's been pretty damn cold lately, we've hardly had any snow. I am not looking forward to digging out my car tomorrow morning.

On a whim, I started keeping track of the TV episodes I've watched this year, and right now I'm at 28. If this keeps up I'll have absolutely no problem reaching 1000 episodes. In fact, I'd probably clear 2000 with a comfortable margin. Yikes!

And I haven't even watched Jon and Stephen yet! (I kinda forgot that for pretty much everyone else, this is just another ordinary day.) And I'm in the middle of yet another episode of Grand Designs. I'll top at least 30 before the day is over. IN SIX DAYS. And I'm not even counting the two TV episodes I watched while proof-reading, or the episode I translated this week.

I don't know if it's because I've been so disconnected from LJ this fall, but my only reaction to the news of the firings was that it would probably crush me to lose some of the fic that's posted here - and only here. I think I'm going to have to go find some of my faves and back them up, just in case.

That's not to say it wouldn't be devastating to lose all the people around here, but I really don't think that would happen even if the site disappeared completely (which I don't believe it will). Sooner or later, most everyone would gravitate to one place or another, and as long as you've got an email adress for at least one person you're going to be okay.

I got my second BPAL order today )

Since I last posted, I've had a week off, so, naturally, I've been watching tons of TV.

Ashes to Ashes season 1 )

My Boys season 1 + aired episodes of season 2 )

The Big Bang Theory season 1 )

Etc. )

I also managed to cap the first two episodes of Pushing Daisies. Well, the first two and a HALF episodes, but I have to actually finish the third one before I can upload the caps.

1x02 - Dummy

Happy anniversary to meeeeeee

Today is my five year LJ-versary, and I had planned to post the second part of my Aeryn picspam, but then hackers happened and I lost my will to live picspam. Instead I have tried to icon (operative word here is TRIED), watched P&P and read fic. All in all, I have to say I have no regrets.

I got all my galleries up and running and so far so good. *keeps fingers crossed* If you notice anything wrong, please tell me about it.

[info]txvoodoo linked to this site the other day: What if we all voted? It's a chance for non-Americans to vote for the candidate they like in the US presidential race. Obama is winning by a landslide.

I want to watch something, but I can't decide between starting my Farscape rewatch, finishing the last three episodes (EVER) of The Wire, Life on Mars s2, Six Feet Under s1, Wire in the Blood s5 or Spaced s2, so instead I'm just sitting here watching nothing. I think I'll just grab whichever is closest, which happens to be...Six Feet Under.
