Ok, so another post with no content whatsoever... but I can't help it. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was on Craig Ferguson last night and he just fucking kills me whenever he is on that show. They are so funny and adorable together, I want an entire show every week where they just chat.

Last night featured Jeff BLUSHING (around 7:30 or so) talk of boners and an uncanny Elmo impression...

If you are interested in some of his prior appearances... and you SO should be, more under the cut )

Another quick drive by to prove I'm still mostly alive...

Had a nasty migraine for a few days, but I'm back now. Have a sneaking suspicion my chair is doing something not so nice to my back which is not helping things any when added to the stress of season. Yay. Or wait. No.

[livejournal.com profile] help_nz is running an auction to raise funds for the victims of the Christchurch earthquake. I can't contribute anything because my life belongs to the Man right now, but you can bet I'm bidding and if you are interested in offering goods/services or bidding they are open for both until next Tues the 8th.

I am hopelessly behind on my tv (I KNOW, I am shocked too... that just tells you how bad this blasted tax season is,) and haven't watched a single episode of Justified yet. This makes me sad. I have only seen 2 episodes of White Collar. Never fear, they are on the Tivo and I hope to marathon them soon... I just need to find the time.

And yet I've watched every episode of RuPaul's Drag Race... what can I say? Bitchy queens are a welcome escape from reality every week. Team Raja all the way.

Ugh and just like that... my 15 min reprieve is over and to the phones I must away. Be good to each other my darlings <3

7:30p Sunday night and what have I done all weekend? Sleep. *sigh*

I was feeling a bit run down all last week and around Wed. or Thurs. I started thinking I had caught a cold. Come Friday and I was positive. Nothing horrible, just a low level fever of around 100 to 101 at its highest, some sneezing and stuffy headed-ness and an overall feeling of blah... but on top of a 52 hour work week, it was draining my energy every second I was awake. I had to teach a class for 8 hours on Friday and by the end of it, I was sooooooooo ready to come home and crawl into bed. Which is basically what I did.

I didn't end up leaving said bed for any time longer than it took to go to the bathrooom or get a cup of water from the kitchen all weekend long. I literally spent the weekend in bed. Most of it sleeping, the 3 hours I've been awake this afternoon/evening is the longest block of consciousness I've managed since Friday night. I also managed to miss most meals and consequently feel as weak as a newborn colt, but I've got some homemade chicken noodle soup warming up now and once I eat that I think I'll have a shower and then go right back to bed.

In the meantime, I am enjoying the Supervisory gig so far. Of course most of my team is in training right now, so I reserve the right to change my mind once they hit the floor.

Still no plane tickets to ConCon, but hoping to rectify that with my first paycheck in Feb. Also starting to get way excited as I bought my ticket for the Kane concert this past friday and its slowly becoming more real. Little over 45 days or so I think and I SO can't wait!

Have gotten no writing done this weekend, which is a bit nerve-wracking as I have my p2w story due soonish as well as my 2 [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fics due as well. I'm not as worried about my AU Big Bang as I have a bit longer to go before that one is due, but the 3 above are all due in about 2 weeks. But I also have a needy dark fic POV that is whispering in the back of my head almost constantly as well as a Hades JDM that is all kinds of cranky with me right now.

Tv has been awesomesauce lately and I am so head over heels for White Collar it's not even funny. It ranks just below Leverage in my tv love. (Sorry Burn Notice, I still love you too... but you moved one spot down the ladder.) I am enjoying Caprica so far, and the new season of RuPaul's Drag Race starts tomorrow and that has me all kinds of gleeful even if I don't have anyone to squee over it with. I was not overly impressed with the last episode of Supernatural, but I have hopes that this week's will make up for it. And really the "Pudding!" adorableness is still going, so boys have a buy for a week.

And really, I'm just wittering over nothing now so I should wrap this up. Here's to hoping that this week is better (altho at this point I'm prolly looking at 56 hours at work since I have to work next weekend...)

Don't forget that tonight at 9p EST is the cut off for signing up for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide! Several "popular" fandoms included this year (Leverage, Burn Notice, White Collar, Zombieland) as well as those rare *coughPhiladelphiaStorycough* ones that make Yuletide so fun.

Miscellaneous ramblings about tv, my birthday and mini Nano under the cut.

... and we're all stuck inside his wacky Broadway nightmare )
darling_lisa: (Joss is my master)
Just finished watching Dollhouse 1x09 "Needs" and had a few thoughts about it. Non spoilery even. This is the first episode that I have been all in on. The previous eps have kept my attention and have been interesting enough to bring me back week over week, but this was the first time I invested in the show, in the Dolls, in the story as a whole. We have been getting bits and pieces up until now, some character building, some world building, but nothing that made me connect with the story emotionally. And tonight I got that connection. So yeah, I'm in. And also? Totally vapid and pointless but... I covet Adelle's shoe collection.

Then there is my other friday night staple, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles. Oh show! I wanted to write thinky thoughts about you, but instead you made me cry last night, that wasn't very nice at all. And you Jossed my Little Black Dress from Oklahoma story to hell and back. But ILU! And I am so sad that next week is the season finale already. *clings to show* Please come back next fall!

And now I'm off to Michael's for some crafty inspiration and then back to try and get some writing done later.
darling_lisa: (Joss is my master)
Just finished watching the Dollhouse premiere. I didn't *love* it, but it intrigued me. I was a bit thrown seeing so many Joss alumni all together, it took me a bit to stop seeing Fred, altho interesingly enough, I never once saw Faith. And seeing Helo from BSG was a bit disconcerting as well (but damn, boy should appear shirtless in every episode, i'm just sayin'.)

I am intrigued by what Joss could do with the idea of the Dolls, what areas he could explore. Cause really, damn, there are some grey areas that just beg to be brought to light. But as far as the episode itself went... umm, why the F would you hire someone to pretend to be a K&R negotiator instead of actually hiring one? The rest of the time I can buy into the idea of someone purchasing a Doll, but really? ::shaking my head:: That being said, I did think Eliza did a good job pulling off the various rolls, I know she has gotten shit for her acting skills but I think she did ok. Not great, but ok. And when Echo curled up to go to sleep at the end, I wanted to see more, so I think that there is enough there to keep me going even if it weren't a Joss show.

Given all that, I am willing to give it time to grow into its own. I know that Joss had rewritten the first episode and I can understand that now. And I am a Joss girl, so I will give him the benefit of the doubt. I didn't fall in love with Buffy until "Witch" so I'm ok with waiting. He hasn't let me down yet. And honestly? Seeing "Grr Argh" at the end made my fangirl heart happy again. :)

OMG so I just watched the season premiere of Nip/Tuck!  My non-spoilery commentary goes something like this...


ROFL, Liz FTW! \o/

Ta-tas? ::giggle::


OH! BOYS! ::smishes them::

In summary... the crack is good.  Long live the crack.
darling_lisa: (KKBB Wrong)
So somehow last night I got sucked into Big Love. I don't even know. I turned on the tv while I was getting ready to go to bed and there was a marathon.... and the next thing I know its a few hours later and I've set my Tivo for a season pass.

::shaking my head::

In other ridiculous soap opera news... Nip/Tuck starts up again this week!!

That is all, as you were.

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a tv junkie. But it's not my fault, really, it isn't. I have an enabler. His name is Tivo. He's a cheerful little bastard, bouncing around all the time and taunting me with the freedom that he can give me. Telling me how easy he is to use, how friendly... and the rub is that he is. So where before, I used to watch maybe 2 or 3 shows religiously and not really anything else... well, now I have a 40 hour dual tuner Tivo and I am hopelessly addicted. LOL.

In any case, I wanted to give that background because I always feel slightly guilty about how much tv I do watch. But most of it is watched on the weekends when I have time to catch up while doing housework or laundry. Thats the beauty of Tivo... while he is recording his butt off, I can be going out with friends, reading a book or any of a million other things. And when I'm ready... there he is with the fix I so desperately need. ::grin:: that being said, the rest of this post will be under a cut since it is spoiler-y in nature.

Here be Heroes and How I Met Your Mother talk... )
