I... still haven't decided what I think about the SN s6 premiere. I think I approve. Thinky-thoughts (and David Paetkau fanboying) under the cut. )

Unrelated to Supernatural:
The Plan To Keep ‘The Event’ From Losing Altitude, Plus Questions Answered (spoilers for the pilot). Tl;dr: They're rerunning the pilot tonight (you should watch it!), and they will actually answer questions, so no worries that it'll be like Lost in that regard.
Lauren Lee Smith and Tara Spencer Nairn join season two of 'The Listener' -- Of note: "13 new episodes are being shot for season two in and around Toronto until February of 2011." AKA Season 2 is really happening, you guys! \o/

Procrastinating --> LJ post that is probably going to end up being gigantic. Ah well. At least I'll finally be caught up and I can start getting better about making more smaller posts rather than fewer huge ones. Hopefully.

First, as always: TV.

Cut for Supernatural spoilers. )

Cut for vague FlashForward spoilers. )

Mentalist, after SN, sure had its work cut out for it. It was no contest, in comparison, but still very good even so. Jane is just awesome.

Cut for Legend of the Seeker s2 spoilers. )

Cut for length. )


NaNo, plus important news for anyone following my progress on NCT. )

Which will be finished once I say two more things. The first: I got two shirts from ThinkGeek and they are awesome. I Never Finish Anyth, which I've wanted for years; and Enough Social Interaction, which is just plain hilarious. :D

The second thing: more links.
15 Supernatural Crossovers We Want to See
13 Scariest Episodes of Supernatural
Awesomest candidate for TX governor ever
Annoying Food Jingles
BuddyTV article/interview re: the end of FF's "The Gift" (spoilers)
TV Shows Most Likely to be Cancelled
Creepiest Children's TV Shows
'Being Human' to be Americanized (please don't!)

OK, all caught up. Until next time!

Somehow, despite the fact that I only have one class and work, Mondays are always so exhausting. So I thought I'd update LJ while I relaxed.

TV (see the tags for a list of shows discussed under the cut) )

More name change madness. )

Finally, three four things:

1. The fire alarm has gone off three times in the past two nights, at 5:30am, 7:30am, and last night at 12:45am. THIS NEEDS TO STOP IMMEDIATELY. DX

2. NCT isn't dead yet! It's coming along, slowly but surely; the notes document (in which I'm including the actual text of the story as I write it, my notes and ideas about things to come that I haven't written actual text for yet, and massive chunks of text copied from (*cough*) websites (*evil grin*) (and in one case, from an interview on the DB site)) is about 9.5 pages long now. Which doesn't say a whole lot about the story itself, given that there's still flashbacks I need to (somehow) incorporate into the present timeline of the story itself, some bizarre tense changes I recently introduced that I now need to deal with by changing the tense of the entire story, and a(n Excuse) Plot I have yet to figure out -- but it's still promising! I have hope, anyway. :)

3. Links:
a) Obama's speech at the HRC National Dinner. <3333
b) Legend of the Seeker on DVD. :D
c) And the comment thread that explains so much about Twilight it's scary-yet-wonderful.

4. I finished "Wizard's First Rule"! Finally! All 820 pages of it. FTR, the show is better, but the book isn't half bad either. I don't think I'll read the next one, though, unless s2 is particularly awesome; books of that length are just too much of a commitment. For now, it's onto "Dexter by Design", and then finishing "American Gods".

Now, time for dinner and then skipping LTM and Castle in an attempt to figure out what on earth we're supposed to do for this Data Structures project. >_< Until next time!

Time for some tab-closing. It's mostly TV stuff. You can has.

(Cuts are for length only; no real spoilers or anything like that.) In no particular order:

1. I've decided not to pay for FanStory (well, I could be persuaded otherwise, but since no one looks up to doing that, I'm pretty decided). Everyone there's just too good for me to hope I'd actually get the money. I'll finish up the story and post it over at my nice, free FictionPress account and have that be that.

2. Speaking of finishing stories, I've been finishing an ancient (3+ years old) one for someone on comment_fic, and I'm just about done with it. :)

3. Chuck )

4. Lie to Me )

5. Ran into Kali on Thursday and lent her Luna. I had it because I was going to read it in the library before class (to finish it officially, y'know), but then I wrote more on "Death and Taxes" (see #2) instead, so it worked out for the best for everybody.

6. Flashpoint )

7. Numb3rs )

8. Harper's Island )

9. The homework I haven't been getting done. )

10. Why I haven't been getting it done. )

11. Amazon is my enabler. )

12. Speaking of Heroes s3, it's on Hulu in its entirety until August 1st. :D

13. Castle )

14. Intersession: the conclusion of the enrollment saga. )

15. Some cool, trans-type happy-news links. )

And I think that's about everything. Until next week!

TV. )
Missed Mentalist last night (you bet I'll be torrenting it) to meet with my group for the speech we were supposed to have today. Then today I get there and I'm hyperventilating and shit (like, for real, I was all tingly) and then the sub couldn't get the video camera to work so she cancelled class instead. *g* I'll be more prepared for Friday, honest.

Oh, and after that, I walked over to Goddard and rescheduled my rescheduled appointment, and as I was leaving the receptionist called me Justin. I didn't even know the people at the desk knew my real name! :D And then she was all "is that alright?". Of course it is! Silly receptionist.

Also I had a really good broccoli-cheese bread bowl from Quizno's. So I'm having a pretty freaking good day. Suprisingly enough. :)

Now to go change for work so I'm not late.

Flashpoint. Wow. I was worried they were just going to Put Jules on a Bus (and I'm curious to know why they're writing her out in the first place), but the look on Sam's face when Kickass New Girl used the Jules restroom (which, btw, I lol'd at)? Thank you, show, for addressing these things. Between this and BH's "Mitchell-and-the-Star-of-David" nod, I'm going to get spoiled by awesome shows actually understanding that, a lot of the time, viewers aren't morons.

Also, kids next week? Oh God. D:

And Numb3rs was... really good. I really liked Cam; they ended things well with him but I'd like to see him come back. Unrelatedly, the very end of this ep (after the omg-awww-sad) made me lol irl. :D All in all, not too shabby. And next week looks... odd, but creepy. Could be good. Reminded me a little of XF s5's "Kill Switch", but I'll withhold judgement until next week.

Oh, and they finally showed a nice long commercial for Harper's Island, and it looks pretty awesome. April 9th. May have to catch that.

Had a project design due in Java 2 today. At least both my partner and I are the type to put that sort of thing off till Wednesday night, so we stayed up together on AIM until midnight till we got it done. *g* I'm going to try and do some work on it Saturday when I won't be doing anything else, just to avoid all that three-classes-worth-of-homework stress next Thursday. Then I'll watch Burn Notice and Psych. And probably Being Human. And it will be amazing.

TV. )
College. (Computers, and conservatives.) )

And more things. Long things. )

ETA 2: Oh, and Barnes & Noble was having a sale on "paperback favorites", and they included a lot of Gaiman, so I had to get hooked up. And now my books are here! I got Stardust, American Gods, and a short story collection by Joe Hill called 20th Century Ghosts. I read another story in the last one already, and um wow. Yeah. Greatness. :DDD  <3

1. Public Speaking )

2. Unexpected encounter is unexpected. )

3. I'm skipping free chocolate at the Union to watch Flashpoint. It had just freaking better be as fantastic as it looks.

4. Oh, and I got a white knot to wear today. Even if I couldn't be there to make them, glad I at least got one. (By the way, it's a knot like for "tying the knot"; it's for marriage equality, get it? :)) Yeah. I has one. Yay.

So, first, regarding my last post: The speeches went on on Friday despite the two snow days. Didn't go too awfully, I don't think. And no, B didn't mention my status in his. Hell if I know where he got two minutes of things to talk about without including that, but somehow he pulled it off. :D

Read more (Flashpoint, fanfic, and other things) )

ETA: The Onion is trufax.
1. Middle East Conflict Intensifies As Blah Blah Blah, Etc. Etc.
2. Street Evangelist Saves 300 Souls From Enjoying Park

Further ETA: Have some BH IKEA!fic, as well. :D Also, read this: Rainbow Girl. I don't know the fandom, but it is amazing.

T and TV.

I took my first dose at 9:15 this morning. So I've been on T for about 13 hours. Nothing new to report yet, of course, but I'm excited for tomorrow morning.
