“I’m just really stressed about the bake sale.”

Friday, July 30th, 2010

I just watched three episodes of Glee back to back (Wheels, Ballad, Hairography). Loved the co-performance of ‘Imagine’ — it’s nice to see everyone take a moment to step back from their cracked up lives. You know what I want to see? Puck and Sue Sylvester teaming up for any reason. Preferably in one of […]

“Why is that a good blog post?”*

Friday, July 30th, 2010

I’ve heard, but never gone to the trouble of verifying, that most people think they’re better drivers than they actually are. Or maybe it’s that people think they’re better drivers than everyone else. This has always been worrying to me, since I think I’m a terrible driver. Anyway, the takeaway message seems to be that […]

Hilarious podfic moment of the day

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

So I’ve been listening to Asunder, by rageprufrock (read by 2naonh3_cl2) on my ipod while I’m driving to and from work for the last couple days. I complained to my family that driving is *soooooo* boring (even though I really have nothing to complain about; it’s not that far), and *Andrea suggested podbooks. Asunder is […]

Burn Notice S4.5 (I think…)

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

“You want me to help you rob a bank?” -Madeline “What did you do?” -Sam (clearly not realizing Fi and Michael were fighting, and appearing somewhat alarmed to find out he’s agreed to work a job with Fi while she’s pissed off) “Could have been worse. Could have been Credence.” -Sam “If you catch the […]

White Collar 2.03

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

1ST HALF OF EPISODE “It’s worth 4 million. You’d think with a price like that he could have bothered to come up with a title.” -Peter “Would you pay four million for that?” “Pay…” “Yeah. You’re the wrong person to ask.” -Peter, Neal “Two taps meant abort, by the way.” “Or you could have just […]

the Timmy Nolan fic

Title: Parks are for Lovers Liars Author: marcicat Rating: PG-13 (violence) Word Count: 2100 Summary: Coda to 5.02 (“Need to Know,” aka the one with the politician) There was no way to run all the data he’d need to run to find a birth certificate. Not without at least narrowing it down to a specific […]

Random Conversation*

Monday, July 26th, 2010

(*how classic conversational gambits may end up earning you bad service) 1. The Ultimate Classic: “What beautiful weather we’re having!” Saying this to a friend: thumbs up. Saying this to your cashier at a store: think twice. Yes, it’s a beautiful day, *outside,* while we’re stuck *inside,* you know — working, here at the store, […]

Thursday tv notes (belated)

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

On Glee: YAY: I finally got to see the episode where Puck sings ‘Sweet Caroline’! Still my favorite Glee song. WTF: So when Mr. Schuester was trying to get a guy to sing ‘Bust a Move’ at rehearsal, this was his progression: first choice, Finn; second choice, Puck; third choice, ‘I guess there’s no one […]

Psych thoughts

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

1. I liked this week’s episode better than last week’s. 2. It was unfortunate that their bickering led them to delay long enough for someone else to die. It’s happened before, but it’s one of my least favorite ‘realism’ elements. 3. Shawn’s dad. I thought it would be cooler having him at the station. So […]
