First off, I REALLY need to stop watching Castle in the middle of the night. Gah.

Second of all, this week's show was kind of awesome on a lot of levels.

Spoilers within! )

I really enjoy my Monday night TV, even if I rarely watch it live. How I Met Your Mother continues to make me laugh out loud and The Big Bang Theory continues to absolutely delight me.

I have been SO sucked into How do you Solve a Problem like Maria?, a CBC reality show that is surprisingly good. I'm watching some encore presentation of it, since I'd heard something about it, and being a huge fan of The Sound of Music, I'm enjoying it.


In other news, I got my first paycheque today! Woot, woot!


Busy weekend ahead: seeing a highschool friend (and meeting her baby boy!) tomorrow, then going to Fringe to see a remake of MacBeth, apparently, that one of my former classmates is involved in.


Acquiring Weeds. Am looking forward to watching it. :)
brinshannara: (seriously)
Which I usually watch at ass o'clock in the morning on Friday.

Spoilers abound.

Read at your own risk.

The Office )

I should probably go to sleep, now. It's past 5. But I have Lost...

Lost )

Off to sleep. If what's left of my brain can STOP EXPLODING.
brinshannara: (totally going in my blod)
I went to bed at 7:45pm on Wednesday and slept until 1:30am. And I'm still awake and I still have some assignment I should do.

Instead, I have been replacing almost all my icons (yeah, all 6. Stupid LJ. If they think they can get me to upgrade to a plus or paid account by limiting me to 6 icons, they are sorely mistaken.) and updating some of my interests.

Well, that didn't take 4 hours. I did some other stuff, too.

My icons are reflecting my current taste in television shows, more or less.

- Barney quote from How I Met Your Mother
- Ted quote from How I Met Your Mother
- Tina Fey as Liz Lemon on 30 Rock
- Mary-Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin on Weeds
- Katara from Avatar: The Last Airbender
- The only old icon left - Bianca and Maggie from All My Children

I'd like to fit in some Office icons there, but, uh... I think I'd have to fill all six spots to properly express my love for the show. I cannot bear to remove any of the icons I just added for an Office one, if I could even decide on a SINGLE Office icon, which I pretty much can't. I'd like 17 icons of Jim doing a goofy face, just to start.

Random TV talk, spoilers for HIMYM, Weeds, The Office. )

Can't wait for a new Office and the season premiere of 30 Rock tonight!

Also, the Montreal Canadiens won tonight. I am wondering how that is remotely possible.

OH. And, NaNoWriMo posts are starting to crawl out of the woodwork. I've got to think of a plot. Let's see, 5 classes including my thesis class, plus some World of WarCraft, plus a semblance of a ghost of a social life, plus 50,000 words in 30 days?

... yeah, I don't even know. I got 6200 last year, 25k the year before, 30k or so the year before that, hit 50k in 2003 and had like, 14k in 2002. It occurred to me the other day that I'm finishing my bachelor's degree and that I've been doing NaNoWriMo LONGER than I've been in school.

I'm still freaked out by that.

I should shower and work on my assignment. And think of a plot.
brinshannara: (@&#%! (weiss))
And you all know what THAT means. That's right! It's "oh crap oh crap oh crap, I shouldn't have ever wasted any moment of time in the last 16 weeks because now it's finals and term papers and presentations and no more sleep for me!" time.

I need to finish memorizing my lines for the play I'm in on Monday evening (it's not a "real" play, but we still have to run through the show -- all five pages of it -- to get a mark, and yes. I'm one of the actors.) and write a character biography that's one page. I'm not remotely concerned about writing one page. :P

I also need to write a Soci of Lit paper that is 8-10 pages.

For Tuesday.

I did mention that I, you know, am in a PLAY tomorrow night, right??

And then Friday is my chemistry exam.

And next Monday, I have to hand in 1-page reviews of two plays I've seen during the semester. I just saw my first one today (Sunday) and will have to see another this week. I'm looking at next weekend.

Anyways. I am definitely alive, but definitely stressed.

And possibly over caffeinated.

OH. And if you're not watching Tina Fey's show 30 Rock, you are ENTIRELY missing out. Not only does she continue to be so very brilliant and funny and downright HOT, but the cast is amazing, too. The writing is hysterical. I love it. It's my favourite new show of this season, beating out Heroes by a smidgen. What the hell, is NBC suddenly doing something right??

Aaaaaaaaaand, I had like, 6000 words for this year's NaNo attempt, so there were no posts, you are not missing anything, it was crap. I am, however, thinking of writing more in my 2004 NaNo, which is one of the ones I actually liked. But not gonna write right now, obviously. :P

So I thought I'd hit "32" for my TV, to switch to the Space channel (Canada's Sci-Fi channel), which shows Voyager at midnight.

I saw David Duchovny's face. And he was smiling. And I went "X-FILES IS ON?!" and then I thought to myself "Mulder doesn't smile big like that." And then I saw Sarah Jessica Parker's face and realized it was DD's guest appearance on Sex and the City.

For a moment, I thought Space had replaced Voyager with XF. And I was glad.

Alas, no. I'd just hit 46 instead for my Fox station.

I actually miss XF.

And Xena, come to think of it.

West Wing Wedding Episode tiny spoiler. )


In other news, called St-Hubert's for chicken. They told me it would take SEVENTY MINUTES to deliver in the snow.

Called Chalet BBQ for chicken. It got here in all of 23 minutes. I was very impressed.

Finishing WW and then back to work. Sob. I hate finals season.

Weird, weird dreams. Nightlights, a party, awkward conversations. (Seriously, the only part that made sense to me was the nightlights.)

Meanwhile, I AM FREEZING MY ASS OFF. It's only 15 degrees out, which is 59F, and I woke up COLD. I am not happy about this. Alas, I must go to Thomas' today to mess with his computer again. Really don't feel like it.

Must eat something, get dressed, pack up and go.

Grr, have not acquired either Kitchen Confidential or How I Met Your Mother, although Weeds and Las Vegas are done. But I can't even find a torrent for the other two. Grr, GRR, say I!
brinshannara: (smile (syd))
I need to reboot my computer (my soundcard is odd. I usually have to cold boot my laptop again, after turning it on, to get the sound to work.), but I'm currently downloading How I Met Your Mother -- the pilot of Alyson Hannigan's new show. I'm also keeping an eye out for Kitchen Confidential's pilot, starring Bradley Cooper and with ... wow, I totally blanked on Nicholas Brendan for a minute and nearly typed Xander Harris. Woo. Buffyverse habits die hard.

Weeds 1x07 is up for download, so I'll be grabbing that as soon as I reboot. Oh, I love this time of year. I watched Las Vegas' season premiere (and have a lot of questions) and now HIMYM and soon KC and then Weeds...


Enough TV. School was awesome today. I nailed a few things in Italian class (and I found a podcast I ADORE! Paolo in America! It's great, it's Italian, and I listen to it on my way to Italian so that I'll be in the right mindset for Italian.) and then went to English, where we were asked to REWRITE Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky.

That is, replace all the words that aren't "real" words with ones that ARE "real". So basically, I massacred Jabberwocky, and I have guilt for rewriting Lewis Carroll. That said, I don't think my version of Jabberwocky was all that bad. Hopefully. :)


Rebooting time! More later, doubtlessly.
