holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (Default)
I'm on a book kick lately, what can I say?

Anyway, I'm reading the oft-neglected Anne Bronte's Tenant of Wildfell Hall. I'm still just a few chapters in, but I like it! I expected to think it was alright, but a little dense, but I actually think it's rather enjoyable. It's an epistolary letter, and there are bits of humor that I appreciate, though the narrator is a little bit oblivious sometimes.

Okay, so Lost ended Sunday. I really liked the finale, for various reasons, many of which [livejournal.com profile] annerbhp ennumerated in her reaction post. (Of course, spoilers abound.) I was pleased that at the end, it really was all about the characters.

I have been thinking about the fact that it is now light-ish outside when I wake up, and how this means I should probably start trying to go for morning walks again. *sighs* It's a never-ending battle to get out the door, people. Maybe this summer... *trails off wistfully*

So my friend sent me this link (which includes a pony of the most disturbing variety) and asked me to help him figure out what the composition was paying homage to. I confessed I couldn't put my finger on it, but perhaps one of my wonderful flist might.

On other news: the buttermilk biscuits I made last night were AMAZING. Again. I swear I could just gobble down all eleven of those and call it a dinner. Although the soup DID complement them nicely. Well, four of them. I did resist eating them all, but mostly because I knew I had brownies for dessert.

No writing the past couple of days, and tonight I have to catch up on LOST, so I'm not sure how much I'll do today, either. BAH. I finally have something I'm excited to work on, and no time to work on it!

First and most importantly, [livejournal.com profile] jacksamfriends has tons of fun, delightful, gen Jack and Sam fanfic for the reading. I'm extremely amused by many of the stories, and have found others to be quite touching, and I haven't finished them all yet but plan to soon, very soon.

my life, which is crazy but less interesting )

Okay, Lost with spoilers )

I also watched the Unusuals--well, half-watched, to be honest--and I liked it, I think. Interesting characters, although as with most first episodes, the pacing felt a bit off to me. I'm kinda only vaguely remembering anything except that Michael from Lost was there and Amber Tamblyn had really bright lips, and there was some mention of a guy named Kawalski. I'm pretty sure, anyway, which means that I can conceivably cross it over with both Lost AND Stargate, although this Kawalski was...well, not the greatest guy in the world. I thought it was funny, though, so I'll probably watch it again next week, as it's convenient to remember that it's on right after Lost.

Oh, and Better off Ted was hilarious. Thank you, Bean.

I'm slowly working my way through the meme post and giving answers. Y'alll are awesome. :-)

So...I finished the SW story last night. I'm posting the last of it tonight, I think. I am so excited. I'm very, very happy to have finished it. I loved the whole process of twisting the canon to suit the setting on Earth.

Honestly, it was written over too long a period of time, and it's a little disjointed. But for all that, I think it stands up pretty well.

I'll post a link to it here, too, once it's all done.

So...thoughts on Lost last night. SPOILERS )

I also told Jenn that I'd talk a little about my thoughts about House.

Shipping, House-love, and medical dramas )
