My welcome back to work was a 13 hour day to be followed, tomorrow, by THIRTEEN meetings back to back between 9am and 5:30pm. I'd say "thirteen" is an unlucky number but, quite frankly, 14 would be worse. And, yes, my response is a mini pity party. *throws confetti*

I want to talk about the last two episodes of House. Cut for spoilers )

Hmmmm. What else before I climb into bed with Eiger Dreams? I saw "Planet of the Dead" and love both David Tennant and Michelle Ryan SO MUCH.

  • It's going to gnaw at me that I can't see new Who until Tuesday. Waaaaaant (Ten).

  • You can find me on dreamwidth at saturn. I'm still ambivalent about using two journaling services (plus IJ) but I really like a lot of the functionality and the opportunity to drop "92103" from my username was too good to pass up.

  • Somehow my windows login isn't working on my work laptop which means I can't use it until I'm back in the office on Wednesday. Very annoying.

  • Rachel Zoe should have moderated the tanning back when she was in her 20's. She looks like an old hag version of Mary Kate Olsen.

  • Earlier today my sister and Chase took me shopping for a bag for my birthday. It's big and orange and so awesome. I can never have too many bags. Never, ever, ever.

  • I'm off to Queens to meet [profile] stargems for dinner! It has been forever and a day since we've seen each other. Seriously. I can't remember when we saw each other last. Maybe sometime last summer?

  • Tomorrow my mother, sister and I are off to see Billy Elliot. I first saw the show in London 3 years ago with my mother and grandmother and my mother's been obsessed ever since.

    I should stop procrastinating and get my ass in gear. I'm due in Forest Hills in an hour.

    I'm so happy. I had one thing I needed to do for work today and it's DONE. \o/ Granted, I was supposed to be on vacation on Friday and tomorrow and that didn't materialize but, hopefully, I'll take a day on Tuesday. *crosses fingers*

    Last night friends and I went to see "A Chorus Line" and it was not good. :( First of all, I can't believe how dated the show is. I still love the music but, wow, the show feels out of touch. Add to that horrible choreography and a mediocre cast and it was a bit of a disappointing night. RENT is coming to Detroit in February, though, with Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal, and I'm making plans to get tickets. RENT never disappoints.

    In addition to getting my work done this morning I also caught up on the season premiere of The L Word. Perhaps this has been bandied about for years but it seems clear that Jenny has a severe case of Borderline Personality Disorder. This Time Magazine article on BPD reads like a case study on Jenny Schecter. It doesn't make me hate her any less, though.

    Here's a happy making photo of The Doctor's companion in the Dr. Who Easter special. )

    Full gallery of photos here.

    What a nice day. A bit of laundry. A trip to the gym and the supermarket. THAT'S IT. Awesome.

    My friends Mike, Drew and I are in the process of forming our own superhero league. We spend all sorts of time talking about our powers. The first rule is that we all get to fly. The second rule is that no one is allowed the power of time travel. (That's my rule and Mike hates it but I see no positive outcome to flitting about through time unless you're a Time Lord.) For our ancillary powers, I've chosen shape shifting. I can shift into other animate or inanimate objects but, for the sake of conservation of energy, Mike & Drew ruled that I can not morph into an object grossly smaller or larger than I am. Mike picked telekinesis and Drew picked phase shifting. We're going to be powerful.

    Assuming you can fly, what's your ancillary power?

    So we have our eleventh Doctor. He's 26, kind of funny looking, has a relatively short resume and, most critically, isn't David Tennant so the jury is out until I see him in action. ETA: It will be interesting to see someone so young play a man with so much time behind him.

    Dinner was fun last night but, holy cow, this was a rough morning. My friends left around 11pm after five hours of eating and drinking (OMG DRINKING). I had a 10:30am hair appointment and I forced myself to go to the gym afterward because it's been 12 days and I've been eating and drinking through the holidays like I'm on my regular workout schedule. Somehow I managed to pull a solid run out of my ass. I think it's because I've taken to covering the display with a towel. I seem to do much better when I'm not thinking, "Ack! Another hill in 20 seconds!"

    In the same vein, I do have nutrition and fitness goals for 2009. I need to have a healthier relationship with food this year. That sounds like a pretty broad statement but it's specific and loaded for me and I'm determined. I also have a goal of running 5k 2x/week through March and increasing to 3x/week once I can run outside again in mid to late April. It's about what I'm averaging now but I got lazy in the latter half of December and I need to get back on schedule.

    I have very little planned for the rest of the day: shower, nap, watch Cold Comfort Farm, clear out my DVR. Perfect.

    I am still riding the high from the preview for next week's CSI. Here is the extended preview from cbs.com. Next Thursday can not come soon enough! It looks SO GOOD! PS. It's nice to know how predictable my CSI interests are. At least I'm consistent. ;)

    Yesterday's appointment at my bank was completely pointless. It took ten minutes for the guy to tell me that he can't help and I need to call someone at the 5/3 corporate office in Cincinnati. He couldn't have told me that over the phone? The good news is that I was home by 4:30 and was able to go for a run (outside!) by 5pm. It was perfect weather. The sky was clear blue and it was 55 degrees out. Running off rage = very cathartic.

    I have a pile of links I've been meaning to post:

  • Following the Script: Obama, McCain and 'The West Wing'

  • BBC (video) interview with David Tennant on his decision not to return to Dr. Who in 2010. I share Kiffle's WOE over this news but am somewhat comforted by this opportunity to list to Tennant speak. He's dreamy.

  • And so is Viggo. Here he is in Rome. Wednesday night Viggo was presented with an award at the closing night of the Chicago film festival. I'm going to have to see if "Good" is coming to any theaters in MI.

    Back to Dr. Who for a second...I'm curious to see how they use the 2009 movies to tie up open bits of canon from s4. In particular, I'm hoping we get to see the meeting between The Doctor and River Song. "The Library" left me with the impression that River Song knew the doctor in his current form and, given what was clearly between them, I'd love to see them meet rather than having to assume it's part of this Doctor's history that falls somewhere between movies. On the other hand, I'm very interested in seeing Jenny meet up with the next Doctor.

  • Carta turned me on to the next blog and today's entry sums up so many of my feeling about Obama and how far I've come in support of his candidacy from where I was during the primaries (and a vocally strong Hillary supporter): After the primaries, while there never was any doubt that Obama had my vote, my heart wasn't quite with him yet. It took time, both to heal and to grow. Slowly but surely, it happened. The more I heard him speak, the more I watched him work, the more I witnessed his temperament, the more I knew that this was the man who could create the America we yearn for. The America that is smart, the America that is just, the America that is kind.

    And here's a quick poll:

    [Poll #1288753]

    After work I'm off to a friend's house where four of us will cook dinner and hand out candy to cute little kids. Today I'm dressed as a BSG fan wearing my "I [heart] Cylons" t-shirt or, as everyone at work is saying, I'm dressed as me. :)

    ETA: I loooooved last night's SPN. I love this whole season! I'm so happy with the introduction of Castiel and where they're taking Sam & Dean.

    I'm am home from work to observe Yom Kippur and fasting to the best of my ability. (A few years ago I received medical instructions to forgo a full fast but I won't have more than a bowl of cereal before sunset. Just something to keep me conscious. :) )

    Moving on:

    I CAN NOT WAIT for tonight's CSI. I have a feeling CBS is going to ruin it for me with some kind of vomit inducing Grissom/Sara reunion but, even with that, it will be SO GOOD. Poor Warrick!

    Here's what I've been up to over the past few days:

  • The 2008 winners for the Nobel Prize in physics were announced on Monday. It always amazes me that people win Nobel Prizes for work they did decades prior. I totally get that the theories and discoveries need to bear out over time but it's been 40 years since Nambu did the work he was rewarded for and 30 years for the two other winners. Not quite immediate gratification.

  • Somewhat related, over in [livejournal.com profile] physics, someone recently asked: Why is E exactly equal to M multiplied by the square of the speed of light? Or to look at it in a way which illustrates the point of the question more keenly, why does light travel at a speed exactly equal to the square root of mass' relationship to energy? There are some interesting answers and arguments in comments.

  • Another Appoloosa review: Appaloosa: 10 Things I Liked, 5 I Didn’t

  • I had a date on Tuesday night for dinner & the debate. Watching a presidential debate is a great way to get to know someone. I forgot, though, that House was on so Tuesday's episode is sitting on my DVD waiting for me and on the agenda for today.

  • Snapfish is having a $0.01 photo sale. Promo code is FALLPENNY08.

  • Bones was so witty with last night's episode title: The He in the She. Hahahaha. I love Bones. And Booth. And this rotation of grad students. I wasn't sure the in & out of characters would work but I love seeing who shows up each week.

  • I spoke with a real estate attorney about my housing options. He gave me some advice but it was, generally speaking, a depressing conversation. I have some action items, though. If I can't sell the FL property, I need to at least feel like I'm doing something proactive.

  • Here are 7 deleted scenes from season 4.0 of BSG. They're excellent and fill in some interesting gaps. (DVD is out January 6th. Why do they keep waiting until after Christmas???)

  • Last, but certainly not least, are photos of David Tennant rehearsing for Love's Labour's Lost and some stills from the show. *loves*

    In practice, I hate the Electoral process but I admit I love watching/reading about Electoral math. Winning a US Presidential election is such an absurd, wacky numbers game (as we, of course, learned in 2000) and I love watching those CNN anchors shift states between McCain & Obama (mostly from McCain to Obama) to show where and why candidates are campaigning and how it's all shaking out.

    Here's some fun stuff for a Monday morning:

  • Patrick Stewart may appear in Dr. Who!! \o/
  • Want some PDFs of season 4 Dr. Who scripys?
  • The Mystery of Dan Simmons. I'm currently reading Simmons' Endymion and just stumbled on this io9 post about the author.

    I'm home from my spectacular, spectacular trip to England & Wales with [livejournal.com profile] kiffle. It was So. Much. Fun. So much fun!

    We arrived on Thursday morning and met up at Gatwick. After an hour on the customs line, E was waiting with mini-muffins and we were off to pick up our rental car and drive the two hours to Stratford. Okay, driving on the other side of the road from the other side of the car? NOT EASY. That first day I had a terrible tendency to drift to the left and, wow, the roundabouts intimidated me. By the end of the trip? Saturn: BRITISH ROAD MASTER. Kiffle will back me up. I drove in the rain and the fog and in populated areas and not only did everyone come through unscathed but the car did as well. \o/

    Back at it. We arrived at The Stratford Hotel around 2pm after a quick stop at a Welcome Break for lunch and some cautious driving. After a nap, we went out for a quick, but yummy dinner, and then headed over to the theater for night one of Hamlet. More on Hamlet shortly.

    On Friday morning we headed out around 10am for Cardiff with noble plans of arriving shortly after noon. I'm going to blame the roundabout signs for this but, partway into the drive, we ended up driving about 25 miles in the wrong direction. Ooops! We did, however, get to stop at the Chateau Impney Hotel for directions. Forget the stunning chateau, there were goats.

    We made it to Cardiff shortly after 1pm and, by the grace of travel luck, parked around the corner from the Hub Millennium Center. Cardiff! The Hub!! We were the biggest dorks with our photos and I don't care because it was so much fun to visit Cardiff Bay! We have all sorts of photos of the bay and the Millennium Center and the Hub and the Dr. Who exhibition. David Tennant's tiny suit! Daleks! AN OOD (born with it's brain in its hand)!!

    Because it couldn't be easy, we had a bit of a downpour part of the drive home from Cardiff but, as noted above, there were no casualties. We were back in Stratford by 6pm or so, napped again, and had a delicious dinner at The Oppo. The photo of the restaurant doesn't do it justice. YUM. After drinks at the hotel bar, it was off to bed for our final day.

    Saturday! Saturday was FANTASTIC. We started the morning walking around town because we hadn't had a chance while shops were open. By 12:15pm, we were at Warwick Castle. My first castle!! There were dungeons and towers and everything you'd expect of a castle built hundreds and hundreds of years ago and continually updated through the 1800's. I could totally live like that.

    Back to the hotel by 3:30pm for, yes, another nap. :) Early dinner at The White Swan (greasy fish & chips) and then off to night two of Hamlet.

    Oh, my god, this show! It was so good. I expected it to be great but it was better than great. Patrick Stewart is a master and David Tennant played the part like he was born for it. He brought a ton to the dramatic moments but it was Hamlet's frenetic madness where Tennant really stood out. His pacing was perfect and he brought so much humor to the role.

    It's a small theater that was made all the better by our kick ass seats. (Thanks E!!) The first night, we were in the 5th row facing the front of the stage. The 2nd night, we were in front row of the next section back. From those fifth row seats the actors were right there.

    Um, also? I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how hot David Tennant is. Holy shit. There's this one scene where he's barefoot wearing a red t-shirt & jeans and every now and then he'd lift his arms up showing a stripe of belly and just, shit, my own belly did flips. He was cute and handsome and charming and I adore him more than ever.

    On Saturday night, since we'd already seen the show, we snuck out of our aisle seats at the start of the final duel to head for the stage door. We'd popped by Thursday night but Tennant was already gone and we wanted a chance for autographs and pictures. Score!


    [click for larger]

    [livejournal.com profile] kiffle has all of our trip photos on her camera including the photos (and video!) of David Tennant but, when they're posted, you'll see that he was right. there. He's so skinny! And cute! And E has photos of his freckles! It was the perfect end to our fantastic trip.

    This morning we were up at 6am for the two hour drive back to Gatwick and now, sadly, we're home. All good things...

    What's next!?!

    PS to Kiffle: Thank you for a) enabling and b) being a fantastic traveling partner/navigator. Wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff!
    Amazon bought Shelfari so I migrated all of my books to Library Thing. You can find me at saturn_reads.

    I'm a bit torn over the decision because I prefer Shelfari and, right now, it's still free. For competitive reasons, though, I have a really hard timing supporting Amazon ventures so Library Thing it is. (I've also been waffling over how to use Library Thing/Shelfari for a while now. Part of me wants to try to load everything I remember reading [ever] but that's an absurd project. For now, it's books read in 2007 and on with the exception of series I started prior to 2007 e.g. HP and The Dark is Rising sequence.)

    Anyway, hi! I'm back from my long weekend in NY. It was perfect and I'm very sad I'm not there right now. My sister is a fabulous host and an even better mother. We had so much time to just talk and be together.

    Here. Have a photo of my nephew. )

    And here, have a funny little rap about the Large Hadron Collider:



    Also a Dr. Who fic rec:

    In Another Life by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller - Doctor 2.0/Rose, PG-13 Summary: An all-too-human Doctor begins to build a life with Rose Tyler, but old ghosts — both real and imagined — still haunt him. And there’s only so much human life you can live without a name...

    And a West Wing fic rec:

    That Way Lies Madness by [livejournal.com profile] ygrawn - Donna/Sam, Donna/Josh, PG-13 Summary: "For years, I thought we were friends because that was the closest we could each get to Josh. But that isn’t true. We’re friends because that’s the closest we can get to each other." This story is set post-series and is AU from about midway through season three. It's told from Donna's POV, a wonderful, mature, flawed Donna, and the character voices are fantastic. Ygrawn is a bit hard on Josh but I dare you to read this and not fall in love with the woman Donna's become and with Sam, oh, with Sam.

    Now back to the ST:TNG marathon on sci-fi.
    [livejournal.com profile] kiffle reminds me it's just 5 1/2 weeks until our trip to England & Whales!

    In honor of our trip, io9 posted a photo of David Tennant as Hamlet. (An alternate theory, I suppose, is that they posted to report David Tennant has made his decision about whether he'll keep playing a hyperactive time traveler in Doctor Who in 2010... but that decision hasn't been made public yet.) AJSLFJSLSZZZT!



    PS. Hello, Jensen. Why must you torture me with those lips?
  • I stopped on my way home from work to pick up Stargate Continuum. I'm so excited to have it in my hands. I'm almost completely unspoiled. Though I admit the blurb on the back of the dvd has me a bit nervous. ) But, regardless, new Stargate is in my hands! With RDA, to boot!

  • I finished season 1 of Dr. Who and, for the record, I finally get it. Nine is awesome. If I'd fallen for Dr. Who in season one I would have been very, very sad to lose Nine. In fact, even loving Ten as I do, I was sad we didn't have more than 13 episodes with Eccelston.

    I think the biggest surprise to me is the connection between Nine and Rose. There's a clear attraction between them that doesn't resonate for me in quite the same way with Ten/Rose. More broadly, Nine seems much more generally sexual than Ten. Watching Ten, I assumed that The Doctor was not just solitary but nearly asexual. I saw that he truly loved Rose but it didn't feel passionate or sexual. With Nine, I felt a passionate connection.

    But Ten is still my doctor. He's so effusive and charming and his hair just can't be beat.

  • What's the story with SPN today? All I can gather is that it's something about Jensen's lawyer, fan sites, and a C&D letter. I have no details and I'll spare you my unproductive speculation. (But, oh, I do love to speculate!) I'm not even entirely sure why everything is suddenly locked down and I am one curious cat. ETA: Got it. (Links in comments.)

  • This is a very good week at work. It's crazy but good and I'm doing my best to enjoy all of it.

    PS. Google made me smile today.

    Hi! I'm back from NY and far too wound up for bed!

  • I have so much catch up from ComicCon. The BSG panel and Dr. Who and Torchwood and SGA and SG-1 and SPN and now I need to focus on Heroes, too, because BRUCE BOXLEITNER joined the cast!! A colleague was there for work and kindly sent me photos via his iPhone for the past few days but it wasn't quite the same (particularly because out interests differ) so tomorrow evening will be spent finding video and reports of all the goodness I'm sure occurred.

  • Today's flight home from NY was a HORROR. We boarded at 12:30pm for our 12:35pm flight and finally took off at 5:30pm. OH, MY GOD it was awful. The only bright spot was that my friend Anne waited on our dinner plans and I was still able to go over to her place for a home cooked meal and great company.

  • My nephew is the cutest little boy ever. I got to NY at 11pm on Friday and, after a run on Saturday morning, headed over to my sister's. My brother-in-law was out and about so it was just the three of us all day. I fed Chase and held him and gave him a bath and just basked in my sister. As a bonus, my sister ordered 4lb lobsters for us. YUM. PS. My sister looks amazing. After 7 weeks, she's within 8 pounds of her pre-pregnancy weight and she hasn't even been to the gym yet. It's astounding.

  • I'm sure there was something else. Oh! Dr. Who. I only have one episode left in season 1 and I have all sorts of things to say about Nine vs. Ten and Nine/Rose vs. Ten/Rose because I'm spending an absurd amount of time thinking about Dr. Who. But, really, what else is there to do when you're sitting on the runway for FIVE HOURS?

    It's only 48 days until [livejournal.com profile] kiffle and I head to the UK for our Stratford Upon Avon/RSC/Patrick Stewart/David Tennant/Cardiff extravaganza and, apparently, the press is getting as excited as we are.

    Rehearsal photos!



    There are more at [livejournal.com profile] stewart_daily here and the original BBC article is here.

    Then there's this: Doctor Who signing ban at Hamlet - Doctor Who and Star Trek fans have been banned from having sci-fi merchandise signed by David Tennant and Patrick Stewart while they star in Hamlet.

    So Kiffle and I shouldn't dress up as a Dalek and a Borg for the show?

    I was COMPLETELY ENTHRALLED by last night's SYTYCD. Barring that Fox Trot, it was one hell of a night. I voted for Will and Chelsie but I'd actually be happy if any of my top 6 win (which means Mark and Comfort have to go tonight).

    I've loved Will for a while but last night sealed the deal. Even beyond his killer James Brown solo, any man who's inspired to dance by Patrick Swayze in the final scene of Dirty Dancing is a keeper.

    Tonight I'm doing laundry and going for a run and packing for tomorrow night's trip to NY! I get into JFK at 11pm on Friday and I leave NY at noon on Sunday but, all day Saturday, my sister, nephew and I are going to bask in each other!

    The sound on my upstairs tv is fucked up (on Fox only) so I have sytycd on mute in the background and I'll have to catch up via my DVR later. It's driving me crazy though! What are the judges saying? (All I have to say is "Go Chelsie!")

    I'm on a book buying binge so, in addition to my B5 novels, I also picked up Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. I hear it's the best of the Batman graphic novels and I'm still thinking about The Dark Knight (movie) so I may as well dig in. (Though I can't read anything until I finish my prep for Terminus because OMG SOON.)

    I also picked up What To Expect The First Year for my sister. As I was leaving the store, I saw The Quantum Ten by Sheilla Jones. I'm going to see if I can pick up a copy at work rather than buying it. It seems right up my alley but I'm a little wary because Jones has taken to describing the physicists as "Max Born, the anxious hypochondriac" and "Erwin Schrodinger, the enthusiastic womanizer" and "Niels Bohr, the obsessive but gentlemanly father figure." It just kind of pings wrong for a physics history book.

    I'm right in the middle of watching Dr. Who's, "Dalek" and I'm loving season one more and more. I didn't expect to enjoy Nine as much as I am. And, look! Diana Goddard is also Osiris! I want a job where I get to run around on the Dr. Who and Stargate sets!

    Oh, here, have an SG-1 rec: You just might find by siegeofangels. (Sam/Jack, R) It plays out a million times that night in Jack's mind--the leap through the gate after the Goa'uld; the shot that finally kills it. The stray bullet that, one in a million, hits the Achilles heel of Ancient technology and shatters the DHD. Sam and Jack are stranded and there's nothing easy about it. This story feels 100% truthful to Sam, to Jack, and to SG-1.

    My runs have been a bitch this week. I've made it the 5.5k both times but I'm really forcing it - especially at the beginning. Right now, I can't imagine adding an additional 0.5k to my run. I'm running, though, which I guess is the point. ([livejournal.com profile] carta - I've chosen to blame Audra, Chuck, & Sean. I've grown accustomed to running to the Galactica Watercooler podcasts and this Star Wars arc just isn't cutting it for me.)

    After falling head over heels for Ten and Rose and Donna and Martha, I've gone back to watch season 1 of Dr. Who. I knew, from a s4 reference, that Eve Myles was in an early episode but there's Naoko Mori, too! Beyond random Torchwood cast appearances, I'm enjoying the season. Nine is no Ten but it's fun seeing everything new from Rose's eyes.

    I bought a few Babylon 5 novels last night. I got the Psi Corps/Bester trilogy and the first two in the Centauri trilogy. I really need to stop buying books until I make a dent in the ones I've got queued up but I can't help myself.

    ETA: [livejournal.com profile] carta! Are you reading the femslash08 stories!?! There's Susan Ivanova/Talia Winters here! I haven't read it yet but you bet your bucket I will.

    I don't have a back up battery for my sump pump which means massive rain plus power outage = bad news. My basement carpet is wet and soggy and getting a little bit foul. I had the dehumidifier on all day and stopped by Lowes for a shopvac. The shopvac isn't getting quite enough water up so I have some fans going tonight and I'll turn the air temp down to try to dry out some of the water naturally. UGH.

    In better news, I tried a new running route today and missed one of the turns so I ended up running 6k instead of 5k! I think this means I need to officially take it up to 5.5k runs on a regular basis. \o/

    ETA: I love that my friends list has exploded with Dr. Who posts.
