I've been rather busy lately saving the world making Christmas cards (long, long story, but it's rather boring after you know that it was all my own fault), so while I've been watching Sanctuary, I haven't been talking about it much.



First, Fugue: I had several people holding my hand (figuratively) during this episode )



Second, Chimera: Dream Team in a Dream World )


Third, Acolyte: I did not see that one coming )

1. I FINALLY beat world two of Mr. Bounce, a game I installed on Chrome that has been driving me NUTS.

2. I am wearing plaid today. I feel so fashionable.

3. I have Hermione hair today. This is a good* thing. *g*

4. I have been consumed with watching The Good Wife. My roommate got the second season, and I mainlined it when she wasn't looking. I'm adding Kalinda to my list of people I want to be when I grow up.

5. Sanctuary was click for more )


*I think my hair looks objectively better when it doesn't look like Hermione hair, but I can't help myself from squeeing internally when it does.

Okay, so really, that's not all I want. I want, among other things:

1. Peanut Butter Cups
2. World Peace
3. To Beat Portal (and then get Portal 2)
4. To Finish a Fic, Any Fic.

I might be the slowest Portal player ever. I don't play very long in one sitting, and I'm unfamiliar with gaming in general, so that's definitely contributing to my overall glacial pace. Still, I think my main problem is that I want to see everything. So if there's a vent, I must explore it, even though I know it's not necessary to beat the game. If there's writing on the walls, I must read it.

And, if there's a turret in front of me, I must freak out instead of calmly walking around it. This is contributing to most of my deaths at the moment. :-)

I am currently caught up on: Castle (OMG TENSION), Sanctuary (Well, for an(other) episode about Will, it wasn't awful), Fairly Legal (what's on hulu, anyway), Community (Want more!), Doctor Who (Want more!), and Fringe (Seriously, Alt!Liv needs to do more ass-kicking, please).

First and most importantly, a happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] pepper_field! I hope it is a fabulous one.

Sanctuary: spoilers for Pax Romana, Hangover, and One Night )

SGU, on the other hand, is making me wish it weren't canceled. These last few eps have been engaging--still darker than SG-1, but with some levity, and I feel like I finally have a good grasp of most of the characters. I haven't even wanted to throw Young OR Rush out an airlock recently! It's a marked improvement. :-)

(SGU, btw, is why I haven't started my Rewatch of SG-1 season two. I had six episodes to catch up on.)


Meme! I haven't done one of these in a while! Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] grav_ity.

Comment with a fandom and I will answer the following:

This isn't a real report of my recent trip to London, but for now it'll have to suffice to say that it was wonderful. Oxford is SO pretty and charming, London has WAY too much to do for being there only three days, and AT5 was fabulous. Gotta love the power of the fangirls.

Hero II through The Hollow Men )

So, my iPod apparently doesn't like the last four episodes of Sanctuary season 3. I have checked for them to load on it, and it looks like they're loading, but then they don't show up on the list! They don't, as far as I can tell, show up anywhere. I even searched for them, to no avail. What could I have possibly done to deserve this?

Kali (all parts), Firewall, Bank Job, Trail of Blood )

Whew. Caught up!

Quick hair update: Really, washing with conditioner works just fine. Also, I've figured out a balance I like for now as far as products go. :-) Now I just need to decide if I want to cut it, and, if so, how much, when, and where. Eeps.

First, WAY too much info about my hair.

TL;DR--I'm Doing Things to my hair )

Okay, Sanctuary. I'm so behind on my little review-thingys. I don't know that anyone really cares if I skip some, but we'll see what we can do. :-)

Veritas, Next Tuesday, Penance, Sleepers, and Haunted )

On a much lighter note, I really, really, really want to tie a string around Will's head to keep his mouth from gaping.

Apparently my astrological sign has changed. Does this mean I should start having an existential crisis, since I obviously don't know who I am anymore?

I've been continuing my Sanctuary rewatch, and I feel obligated to share my super profound deep thoughts with you.

End of Nights, Eulogy, Hero, Pavor Nocturnus, and Fragments )

My external hard drive wouldn't give me the time of day last night. *sighs* I knew this could happen, of course, but that doesn't make it easy.

In a happier vein, if you need something fun to do, check out this article about (the myth of) tone-deafness at the BBC, and then take the How Musical Are You? quiz. You'll have to sign up/log in, but it was quite entertaining and interesting. I scored higher on some things than I thought I would, and lower in interest than I think is accurate.

The Sanctuary rewatch is proceeding quite well. :-) I've just watched the first ep of Season Two, and I'm sure I'll have thoughts later this week on it along with others. (Huggy-bear!)

Today was a fairly typical Saturday--woke up too early, cleaned all the things, did some laundry, realized that yes, I really should go to the store to return something and get food, lost time shopping, returned home and finally decided to purchase a nook, cooked food, and put in a few eps of TV.

Which, of course, is Sanctuary these days.

Instinct, Revelations part 1 and 2 )


The bit of mourning is that my external hard drive is probably dead. It's making a clicking noise and... not working. :-( Thankfully, most of it WAS a backup, so that's good, at least. I think some of my pictures are only on there, though, and that's really too bad. Hopefully it will work for a little while to get them off. We'll see.

So, in addition to spending time watching Sanctuary, I've been using it to help me learn how to rip DVDs and put the episodes on my iPod. It's been fun. :-) I can now create little tiny digital files... and I know how to make them show up as episodes of TV shows... in the right order! *does boogie dance of technological joy*

Let's see. I've watched 'The Five,' 'Edward,' 'Requiem,' and 'Warriors' since I last posted, I think. It's amazing how much I've forgotten from this show.

spoilers ahoy )

I don't know what it is*, but I have hit critical mass with Sanctuary--I'm reading fic, and rewatching, and day-dreaming up implausible John/Helen kisses in rainstorms.

Look, I have a Thing about kissing in the rain, okay?


But seriously, I've got it bad. I'm at that weird in-love stage where episodes like "Nubbins" look all adorable and fun--I think part of this is that the first time I was watching these eps I was still so close to Stargate and Amanda-Tapping-as-Sam-Carter that I was anxiously watching for all the wrong things instead of enjoying the ride, and now I'm oh so definitely enjoying the ride.

I only had time to watch the very beginning of "The Five" this morning, and oh, Tesla. I can't wait for more of your evil, snarky deliciousness.

*Maybe partly having to do with some of the recent, amazing fic I've been reading. And bookmarking.

Sanctuary 03x08 For King and Country spoilers )

I have to confess I've 1) never seen Babylon 5 before and 2) Am now obsessively watching it.* The first few eps were rough--along the same lines as the first few episodes of Stargate SG-1, a little painful.

But the PLANNING. It's really amazing to me how much forethought goes into some of the tiniest details. I've already seen this go awry, but I deeply admire the effort.

I'm just starting the third season. spoilers so far )

*This obsessive watch brought to you by yet another round of being sick. Thankfully, I was on vacation this time around. *headdesk*

One more thing, that you've probably already seen but made me incredibly happy this morning: They Fight Crime!

I'm in need* of a timeline for Magnus' life--showing what we know she's done, where she's been, and when.

I'm sure someone out there has compiled something, though I'm sure it's not complete, given Magnus' reluctance to share her whole personal history in one go.

Anyone have any leads?

*Not for fic, no, certainly not, why would you ask?**

**Theoretically, if the idea for fic were to exist (which it does not), then it would be both very vague, super-secret, and very, very potential at this point, which means, all said, don't hold your breath.

I was going to talk about how fabulous my exercising has gone the last two days, but I can't imagine how anyone else really cares for details. *g*

Let's talk about Sanctuary instead! spoilers for 'Trail of Blood' )
