So, I'm fairly sure I've got a low-level something in my system. Eyes are no longer watery, but the throat is uber-scratchy. And I forgot that when I'm like this, dairy in general isn't too good (I feel worse, usually), so the ice cream is sitting in the freezer.

After I got done with Alvernon Optical, I was feeling shitty, so I just came home and lazed about. I did actually finish the school-work I needed to at about 8:30.

[livejournal.com profile] domnall's home, as 40k was cancelled. He found this out after he got there, but oh well. I think minis are going to be painted this weekend.

I've got Cloverfield on. Reminds me I'd like to sit down and watch Alias from beginning to end. On the TV front, Dollhouse will either be quite good or oh god no. The first episode shown didn't grab me 100%.

Of course, the only things I watch with serious regularity are Fringe, Top Chef, and Top Gear. Everything else kind of piles up.

Hrmm... it just ended. Felt shorter than it was.

I'm hoping to get my credit card paid off in the next few months. This will happen because I want it to damn it. Besides, then I can order more linen guilt-free.

I'm looking forward to Watchmen. Muchly. Hopefully, will see Coraline this weekend.

Am also debating building an open-air clay/brick/etc oven at my dad's place for baking experiments.

The NyQuil is kicking in. Night all.

(is such a fangirl!!!)

Finn's Fine Books

Why, hello! Oh, Shiny facsimiles of books I'll not be able to afford.


Secondly, and more importantly - Top Gear did a second amphibious car episode. It involves the English Channel and the Hamster sinking. again.

Now, I knew the first episode existed, I watched the thing on BBCAmerica. But somehow [livejournal.com profile] domnall stumbled across this second one. Wheee!

For those who don't know - Top Gear is a glorious British car show. Generally, the phrase "how hard can it be" tends to lead to chaos, panic, and disorder. I'll dredge up some other videos from the show later and add links - things like car darts and the convertable people carrier (ie: mini-van).

(Parts 1, 2, and 3 are the first episode, and 4, 5, and 6 are the second one - just so people know.)

It's a job, and I'm quite glad to have it.

I"m working front desk at a local dry cleaning chain - taking dry cleaning/laundry in and giving it back to the customers. It's not a bad job, just repetitive. As of right now, looks like I'll also be working six days a week. (bright side - after two weeks it's possible for that saturday to be time and a half, if i've worked monday to friday.)

Highlands was also quite fun. I have pics, which will be uploaded eventually. Photobucket, just hates me right now. Nice to celebrate with friends at war. I was exceedingly surprised (and quite pleased) with the gift from [livejournal.com profile] domnall, who got me things to make lampwork beads. I still need MAPP gas, and the rods, but those are dealt with. It was just... surprising.

That said - the Project Runway challenge last night included dogs. And Uli won with a pug.

All together now aaawwww.

I'm officially hooked on Veronica Mars.

[livejournal.com profile] avilina, I thank you...

It's well-written, funny, and just overall pretty damned good.

Not to mention it's a quite good procrastination tool.

Then again, it is Spring Break.

First off, I saw Capote yesterday.

I had high hopes for the movie, and it met them. Great movie, and I highly recommend it. Philip Seymour Hoffman is brilliant. I'll admit I don't know much about In Cold Blood and Truman Capote himself, except for what dad told me when I asked. However, it was really easy to follow, and everything fell together nicely.

There was a very nice almost subtlety to the entire movie. It took a little time to figure some things out, and the suspense of why the men did what they did built rather nicely.

In other visual media news, I saw an episode and a half of AMC's new Hustle. First off, it's not an AMC"Original Series" as they claim, but a British show. Secondly, I only saw an hour and a half because it came on at 11 and I was tired from having woken up at 6 after watching Battlestar Galactica at [livejournal.com profile] avilina's place the night before. btw, bsg? i love it. thanks for introducing me!

However, what I saw was good. The cons are long, and there aren't gun-fights, car chases, or anything. The first episode involved a con where the police investigation was (unknowingly) led by one of the con-men. With the end result of, when the police figured it was a con, how were they supposed to deal with/report it? As it would look rather bad to say that they were led by a con-man.
