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.

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! =)

I eschew daily updates for mega-long posts no one in their right mind has the patience to read

The personal stuff. )

I joined [info]farscaperewatch, but the one-episode-a-week thing probably won't work for me. I mean, that's almost two years! I'll have rewatched the show a couple of times by then. But I did figure it'll be fun to follow along since I was never in the fandom the first time around. I'll probably pick up my last rewatch where I left off, at the beginning of season 3, instead.

In other TV news:

Dollhouse )

Castle )

Project Runway Canada )

The Amazing Race )

How I Met Your Mother )

Southland )

Everyone and their mother posted about The Sarah Connor Chronicles this weekend, and since I haven't seen a single episode since the season premiere, I thought I'd make that the next show I catch up on.

I spent a ridiculous amount of time on this icon considering how simple it is. And it's still not right! But I'm past the point of caring. So I uploaded the new stuff to my Scrapbook.

Feb. 12th, 2009


I can't believe that there still hasn't shown up a downloadable copy of HIMYM 4x15. I mean, people have it. And they've gotten it from multiple places. And no one is tech savy enough to remove the personal info and upload it to us poor embittered souls who are doing without. Won't someone please think of the children fans?!

And while I'm on the subject, why wasn't the airing moved up just a week? Isn't February still a sweeps month?

I have watched other stuff, though:

Top Chef )

The Big Bang Theory )

Friday Night Lights, season 3 )

Being Erica )

Jan. 26th, 2009

Your wish, my command

So, in accordance with the poll results, I started with Friday Night Lights season 2. )

And I have a few thoughts on Shows Currently Airing.

How I Met Your Mother )

The Office )

Top Chef )

Being Erica )

To Love and Die )

Also, I've been watching a lot of movies (well, for me), so here are a few reviews. Spoilers for Revolutionary Road, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Slumdog Millionaire. )

Dec. 10th, 2008

Happy Day 2: Spoilery for How I Met Your Mother. )

Oct. 30th, 2008

Life and life

My job is taking its toll on me. )

So I'm too exhausted to do anything but watch TV Oh, the irony! (Spoilers for Life, HIMYM, The Office, Fringe, My Own Worst Enemy, Pushing Daisies and The Amazing Race. )

Finale Round-Up

Work has been INSANE lately, which is why I'm not around right now. After a hellish work day yesterday, I treated myself this afternoon by watching some TV.

In the order that I watched:

How I Met Your Mother )

Bones, w/ tiny picspam )

Gossip GIrl )

I also watched the The Office finale on Friday. )

Apr. 27th, 2008

Collective picspam

Usually, when I only feel the urge to picspam just one scene I just...don't. Because there's a little bit too much work involved in order to only end up with one panel. But Samantha Who? (OF ALL SHOWS!) made me realize that I needed to picspam, but of course one episode of that show yields only a small number of picspammable caps, so I decided to picspam a bunch of other scenes/episodes from the past couple of weeks that I haven't bothered with since it would be so little.

Spoilers for Samantha Who?, The Office, Life on Mars and How I Met Your Mother. )

Apr. 23rd, 2008

It's never too early for basketball

I don't really post about TV anymore. I thought I'd remedy that.

Make Me a Supermodel - finale spoilers! )

The Office )

Bones )

Life on Mars season 2 )

Gossip Girl )

And speaking of spoilers, even though I haven't really cared about getting spoiled for anything lately, the way people keep NOT cutting for reactions and outright plot spoilers is starting to really rub me the wrong way. Not to mention the numerous uncut images, which, at the correct size I'm mostly fine with, but people are getting sloppy there too. At least learn how to resize images with the html tag if nothing else. /PSA

How I Met Your Mother 3x16 )

Regenesis, 1x01-1x07 )

Well, that was long.

The only other news I have is that I played the new MarioKart for Wii this weekend, and now my mind's definitely made up. Wii, here I come!

You just can't buy publicity like that

I tend to think of How I Met Your Mother as a very low-key show, one that's dismissed in the minds of large parts of the viewing public and loved ferociously by large parts of fandom. So imagine my surprise when a story pops up on my BBC News syndication about the show. So I go to check out the article. It's okay now, but this is what it looked like when I first saw it. Good thing I remembered to take a screenshot.

Which brings me to the second part of this post: Extensions. I made the above screenshot with one of my favorite new finds: FireShot

And here are all of them. )

I didn't post for over a week and now I've posted three times in two days? CRAZY!

How I Met Your Mother 3x13

Best part... )
