What the heck have I ever done to Amazon that makes them think Talladega Nights would be an acceptable recommendation?

The great writers of Heroes have heard our pleas, fandom. And they have answered. This was such a great episode. One of my favorites. *dances around*

zOMG! Was that Hana in the previews? When is she going to show up?

Got the bill from UAB. The IGIV treatment alone was thirty-five thousand dollars. Thanks be to God for insurance 'cause that is some pricey stuff.

And it's just providing more and more 'high maintenance' jokes for Daddy.

Teehee. How I Met Your Mother is hilarious. And now I really want hot wings.

You know, I'm not sure I like the trailers for Bridge to Terabithia. As I understood the book, the story was really more about the friendship between Leslie and Jesse rather than any of their games in Terebithia. The trailers make the story look like a cross between Narnia and Harry Potter with a dash of Lord of the Rings mixed in.

WHOO-HOO! Heroes is on! Quickly now, who's Claire's dad? Linderman or Nathan? It's gotta be one or the other. The arm looks like Nathan's due to the watch, but Linderman is the answer to EVERYTHING in this show.

Heroes commentary has been edited because I forgot a few things

DistractionsCollapse )

This one was WAY better than last weeks. It seems that most of the good ones have Sylar in them. I hope they don't kill him at the end of the season. Or if they do kill him, I hope they can bring Zach Quinto back as Sylar's long lost but totally not evil twin brother. But they have to keep the brain slicing 'cause that's just too cool. He can brain slice for the forces of good! That'd be such a cool bumper sticker. "Have you brain sliced for the forces of good today?"

When are they going to introduce Hana? She's cool!

Now I'm going to go see who got shot on CSI:Miami. My personal theory is that David Caruso wanted Ryan Wolfe killed off because everyone likes Ryan while thinking Horatio is the smuggest, over dramatic, pretentious, wannabe tough guy to every stroll the streets of Miami. And hopes he pokes himself in the eye with those sunglasses. Or at least *I* want him to poke himself with those sunglasses. It's gotten to the point where, if I open my mouth during CSI:Miami, Mama cuts me off with a "Yes, we know. Poke in the eye, it'd be funny."

But it WOULD be. It'd be hilarious! "I believe, there's a sca-GAAAAAAAAH! MY EYE! IT HURTS!"

The Fix...how appropriately named. Because Heroes has turned me into a freakin' junkie.

I am industrious! I am scholarly! I am totally trying to procrastinate on putting together this study guide for Edu for the Exceptional Child class!

*sulks*

The FixCollapse )

I think we should be able to sue for mental trauma that occurs after watching these episodes. Except that suing might result in cancellation, in which case we should forgo suing.

I love this show.

And now I have to go back to this study guide. We hates it, precious. It bores us, precious.

Literature is My Utopia

Has anyone seen the Lj spotlight? There's a community on there for people that want to try and read 50 books in a year. That's typical for about what I'd read over the course of a month and a half or so, but still, I'm going to try to keep a list of all of my books for the year. So far my list is as follows. I'm actually supposed to have fifty of them, but these are all I could think of at the moment.

My Reading ListCollapse )

I expect that list to grow quite a bit. I'd love to read the third volume of the Inkheart trilogy, but Corneilia Funke seems to be disinclined to write the darn thing. Either that or she's written it and they're incredibly slow to translate it into English. I'm wondering if I were to buy it in German if I'd get it faster. It'd be a pain to translate the whole thing, but at least I'd find out what happens to a certain character that fell victim to the Favorite Character Curse.

And I'd also like to re-read my Wheel of Time books. Joe recommended them way back when. Joe normally recommended good books. They can't possibly be as bad as I remember...right? I mean, surely my imagination has magnified the dullness and sheer tediousness of these books beyond their scope, right? Zillions of people read and love these books. I myself remember a fondness for some of the characters. (And by some, I mean "Perrin") I have to be imagining Robert Jordan's inability to write a plot that actually goes somewhere.

I do this to myself every year with eggnog too. It still sucks and tastes like thick, cinnamon flavored milk. But every year I convince myself to drink because it can't possibly be as bad as I remember it being.

Ten bucks bets that the WoT books are like eggnog.

"Yes, you go down the dark hallway alone, and I'll wait here in the dark room all alone."

Okay, so the SG1 team teams up with the Russians and they go off to explore this Ziggurat of Marduk. I can buy that. Upon arriving at said ziggurat, they discover a rather recent skeleton of Russian origin with bitty little teeth marks all over it. They're a grand total of about twenty feet from the entrance of the aforementioned Ziggurat. WHY on earth do they keep going further in? Did these people not watch the Mummy? It's all about little buggy things eating peo-OMG WHAT IS THAT THING!?

I have to go find some Raid, like NOW. It's like King Kong all over again.

Oddly enough, the subtitles are translating all of the Russian for me. I am learning a very large vocabulary, but nothing that I can say in public should I ever go to Russia.

And, let me reiterate for the eighty bazillionth time, just how awesome Daniel Jackson is. I am really dreading the sixth season. I think I'll buy the sixth AND seventh seasons and then devote an entire weekend to watching Season 6 so as to get it over with and get Daniel back. He does come back into it at the very start of the seventh season, correct?

On second viewing, the creepy little bug thing is actually kind of cute in the same way that the baby vampires in Van Helsing are. Which is to say, they aren't really, but you still feel kind of sad when they die.

I want to watch more Jake 2.0.

I managed to remember to tape the Jake 2.0 marathon last night on Sci-fi. I love this show. Unfortunately, it's another Firefly. Awesome show, great plot, one season. Suprisingly enough, I can't blame Fox for yanking this one. I think it aired on UPN at first.

Stupid television networks. *sulks*

I do want to know if Jake can get an entire sentence out without stuttering in an endearingly dorky fashion. So far he hasn't.

And he's a REALLY bad liar. How are people not calling him on it? Maybe they get their water from the same place that Metropolis does.

LOLZ! I love the doctor that is so obviously crushing on Jake. "Do you know what happens if you fail? I don't get my Nobel Prize. And I REALLY want my Nobel Prize. I want the money, I want the fame and I want the medal. So all this 'I'd don't think I can do it.' crap is not going to work. If I don't get my Nobel Prize, I'm going to have to kick your nanobot butt."

Okay, done with plugging this show for everyone. (Seriously, go watch it.) School starts next week. This is my last weekend of guilt free leisure. Because starting next week, I'll have this little voice in the back of my head saying "You really should study. Why aren't you studying? You need to be studying." And then, undoubtedly, there will be term papers and the stress should really start.

Okay, as far as that Dailylit.com thing went, it turns out that it's impossible to read a Jane Austen novel bit by bit. Sorry, I love Pride and Prejudice just as much as the next person, assuming of course, that the next person actually likes P&P, but Austen novels must be read in as much of a glob as you possibly can. At least for me they do. Otherwise I forget things.

And these daily e-mail snippets are not conducive to my memory.

So I swapped out Emma for Hound of the Baskervilles. Holmes is a bit of a jerk, isn't he? Poor Watson.

I so want pizza. I would kill for pizza. One of my coworkers had pizza on friday and when she heated it up and brought it back to her office, the lovely smell of pizza ended up permeating every single area of the office.

I would kill for pizza.
