“Don’t dance in the office.”

Friday, October 30th, 2009

I *did* take time to watch the second episode of White Collar, which I found enjoyable in the extreme. (Okay, and then I watched Burn Notice too — it’s like I’m trying to avoid writing, or something!) I like Neal, I like Peter, I like Elizabeth. Heck, I like Jones! (Where was Diana this week? […]

SGFAIL, Episode whatever

Friday, October 30th, 2009

I didn’t watch SGU this week. I’m pretty sure this was the failtastic ep everyone was talking about before the show even started. If so, then — well, I’m already pretty disappointed in the show, so it’s not like it would change my opinion. Also, if it was that episode, then Lieutenant Scott’s gotten way […]

If I set a goal, does that make me more or less likely to actually get it done?

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

TODAY’S GOAL: Finish October fic! Really finish, not just type a few words and then ignore it for weeks at a time. Because, well, I’ve already tried that method, and let me just say, it’s not working that great. 4 DAYS TILL NANO! Yeah, that’s pretty much a OMGWTFBBQ!!1!1 thought for me at this moment. […]

SPN Recs!

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

Okay, big news — starandrea’s reading (and writing!) SPN! (Woohoo!) Even more amazing, she’s actually watching the show! I still have not managed to watch any episodes, but I’m interested in what she thinks and says about them. Here’s the fic update from starandrea: Love, the Antichrist, by starandrea A beautiful and fun story about […]

Quotes from White Collar (pilot)

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

“That’s the same suit you were wearing last time you arrested me.” “Classics never go out of style.” -Neal, Peter “You know my life, you don’t think I know yours? Did you get the birthday cards?” “Nice touch.” -Neal, Peter “Dear Peter, I have moved 1.6 miles. 87 Riverside Drive xoxo Neal” -Neal, in a […]

Okay, I’m in love.

Why “White Collar” is eighty-billion-times-better than SGU: 1. After one episode, I already know five people’s names: Neal, Peter, Diana, Elizabeth, June. (That’s as far as I’ve with SGU, even after a bunch of eps: Eli, Dr. Rush, Col. Young, Telford, Scott. Also, note the gender breakdown there. Yikes.) 2. Style!win. The hat rocks. (Although, […]

SGFAIL, Episode… 4?

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

So, I’m bored. And I’m pretty sure that’s not what the writers were going for. But the situation in the show hasn’t significantly changed since the first 30 seconds of the pilot, and it’s getting dull. Just more mortal peril, week after week. “You all know our situation; it sucks. … It’s another bad day.” […]

Found It!

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

I was telling starandrea about this fic, and then I had to go looking for it… Yes, it turns out that not ever filing anything in any sort of order on my computer makes that process take a long longer. Anyway, here it is. (Note: the version saved on my hard drive lists the author […]
