gratuitous post is gratuitous

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

…but it does bring my post total to 30, to match the number of days in June. Yeah, it’s like a thing for me, I’m not really sure why. So long, first half of 2010. It’s been real. Fingers crossed, best wishes expressed, and high hopes for better luck in the next go round. Bring […]

Two Non-Fic Recs

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

This going to bed early thing is for the birds. Seriously. I’m trying to be all conscientious and go to bed early enough so I feel rested and not like I don’t care about anything in the mornings, but that means I have to cram some serious internet time into the evening. I have almost […]

My Charade Is the Event of the Season, by starandrea SPN, part of the Sky trilogy ‘verse*, Sam tries to figure out what Gabriel’s doing I *love* this story.

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about the internet, it’s that unless you’re posting cat macros or links to free stuff, you may end up wishing you’d just kept your mouth shut. If there’s a second thing I’ve learned about the internet, it’s that I’m almost always willing to spout off my opinions anyway. So […]

“In Plain Sight” (thumbs down)

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Netflix kept telling me I’d like “In Plain Sight,” so I finally gave in and had them send me the first dvd of season 1. Other than Cristian de la Fuente (Dancing With the Stars favorite season shoutout!), I didn’t find much to recommend it. So far, every episode starts with something awful happening. And […]

At work on Wednesday, someone said to me, “You watch a lot of tv,” and I sort of went, “…” Because yeah, I kind of do, but I was surprised at how defensive I felt about it. There was a whole period of time where the cool thing to do was to not watch television, […]

I blame the heat.

3 Things I’m Cranky About Today Yesterday 1. The way small towns are portrayed on Glee. If I was a teacher at that school, I’d be handing out detentions every time a kid wailed “I can’t waste my life in this loser town!” Gee, thanks a lot, kid. Not like that was a choice those […]
