Oh my god you guys. Last week's LTM ("Beat the Devil"). Like I said, I really should be writing, but a) I made progress on my last section this morning with [livejournal.com profile] sashataakheru, and b) I figured that if I caught up, I'd have incentive to finish the fic before watching tonight's. (ETA: Which would have worked out better if I hadn't mistaken Eastern for Central, again. Seven. Not eight. Gah.)

And I really should have watched it ages ago because JASON DOHRING YOU GUYS. Aka Josef Kostan from ML. Playing a psychopath. It was amazing. I may have nightmares.

And I really want a LTM/ML crossover now. There's at least half a dozen ways that could play out, I want to see some of them! Pretty please?

Also, spoiler. )

P.S.: I wouldn't say no to LTM/Dexter, either. Just sayin'.

P.P.S.: Oh, and that preview for tonight's? Holy cow. o_O

OK, so I've literally been online all day today (up at 8:15 this morning, online by 9, it's now 7:30pm -- make that 8:30). Now that we've covered how much I Fail At Life, time for some tab closing, because I need to do something productive, and when things get this bad, that counts. Don't judge. *g*

Tab closing, aka random linkage:
Cut for length. )

In other news, have a cool article on Julia Serano and Ben Barres and a lolarious post from lower_tadfield. A+.

Speaking of grades: I ended up with an A (Tech Writing), three B's (Theory of Computation, Principles of Programming, and Numerical Methods), and a C (HCI) for this semester. Deserved an A in Theory, had been hoping for a B in HCI, but not failing Principles makes up for that. Basically. All in all, I'm okay with that. (Mostly. I emailed my Theory prof. We'll see.)

Oh, and lastly, I have been continuing to fail at WdM. Sigh. That's the only reason I'm writing this post -- because I opened my fic notebook, took one look at SP, and literally sighed out loud, slumped over, and had to use this to procrastinate. *sad panda* But as far as [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest goes, at least I have my Seeker fill to look forward to on the 28th! :D

Pseudo-ETA: Oh, and my class has been going alright. Light-speed, though, geez! Unrelatedly, have some epic win: 65 Million Years With a Creationist.

ETA:
1. Supernatural season 6 spoilers. Huh. I can has s6 nao plz? (And regardless if that's Sam or not, I'm not backing down -- that was, at the very least, not 100% Sam this time. Lucifer and all that blood can't have been good for him, you ask me.)

2. Cute dog rides turtle. :DDDD

3. For 99 years, OED got it wrong. Ha! At least Wikipedia doesn't take a century to figure out when it's screwed up! ;)

I love my shows. I don't know how they all manage to be so amazing.

Lie to Me:

LTM (2x6, 2x7); cut for length. )

Castle: Equally great, although the three I finally caught up on (2x7-9) weren't my favorites. (ETA: Tonight's was fantastic, though, wasn't it? I was tearing up a little at the end there.)

White Collar: Show, I love you so much. "The Portrait" was TERRIFIC. I loved the end. <3 God, Neal just keeps getting more and more awesome. The whole thing with Kate broke me, though, omg. ):

Legend of the Seeker: I FREAKING ADORE THIS SHOW. CAPSLOCK DOES NOT EXPRESS HOW AWESOME IT IS. "Broken" really was kind of predictable for the most part -- e.g., the second "You don't want to know" came out of Cara's mouth, I remembered what that guy had said in "Denna" and went "Oh, god" out loud -- and yet, they still managed to make it the kind of awesome you can't look away from. And the parts I didn't see coming. Holy. Freaking. Cow. That is all. Already can't wait till next week!

And, Dexter: Holy crap, the end of "Hungry Man". I thought we'd already gotten our twist for the episode! Didn't see that one coming! Omg. Also, I love this show's writers, too. Awkward and creepy Thanksgiving dinner was awkward and creepy, and more-frequently-than-you'd-expect awkwardandcreepy at the same time! Trinity sure is a scary SOB, isn't he. Damn.

RL and NCT; cut for length. )
Gahhhh. Thank god for Thanksgiving Break. D:
lonetread: (facepalm)
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. )

Aaaaanyway.

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)

'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!

Update!

College )

TV )

Comm class (assignments, trangst, and The Cute Kid Whose Name Is Not Sam) )

Finally, I've been writing quite a bit of FP fic recently for the newest w_g board (60). It's all FP transfic, and I'll post it here when I'm officially done (i.e., when I switch fandoms over there), just so I can make sure all the sequels and so on are organized properly. So keep an eye out for that if you're interested. It's been a lot of fun, I can tell you.

ETA: Further update: Grades are up. I made a C in Java II. I calculated every possible GPA and several impossible ones, and apparently the only way I could make a 3.25 is if I got an A in Comm (which I will), an A in Dynamics (which is possible), and an A in 13 more hours worth of classes (which I can't even possibly take that many classes). So, yeah, that sucks. ): *sigh*

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

And, next fall's TV lineups:

(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!

Weekend....

Thursday:
Spoilers for SN and Eleventh Hour. )

Friday:
1. Flashpoint (spoilers) )
2. Numb3rs was a rerun, but I barely noticed because I was too busy being in love with this fic: "Mind Games". Seriously. I might wear out my refresh button waiting for her next update.

Checked out Lie to Me yesterday. Hulu's five-week rolling stock of episodes meant it only goes back till ep 4, but I've officially seen 4 until now. It's good stuff.

Although, when I watched the Castle pilot after that, I kept getting distracted by their facial expressions, lol. Castle's good too, though. Actually, even better, really. I couldn't stop laughing. :D Looking forward to catching up more.

In other news, I get emails from FanStory for the prompts, and recently I got one for a "flash" (500-800 words isn't flash to me, but hey) story with the prompt "the secret". Having just read Luna, well, I was inspired. I figured if I could manage to write 500 words, I'd submit it. I could use $100, y'know?

Unfortunately, when they say "contests are free to writers", they don't mean they're not free to everyone else, they mean you have to have a paid subscription to participate. I know I've got some writers on my flist. Anyone had experience with FanStory? It gives off that "scam" vibe more than Poetry.com ever thought of doing, if you ask me. I don't know if it's worth it. Not least because if you win second or third you get member dollars, and then I'd feel like I had to stay and use them. So what do you guys think? Should I go for it? Once I get the ending of the story pinned down I'll post it over at FictionPress and link it from here so you can check it out, but I'm pretty pleased with it.

One more thing: I got a research assistant position with my old Logic prof. It's pretty terrific. :D
