After a week of running around like a crazy person, I stayed in bed yesterday until FIVE PM. It was glorious. I watched the first to episodes of Kings, and the last two episodes of Supernatural and Dollhouse. I also read Sheppard's Law and took a 2 hour nap. It was GLORIOUS. When I finally got out of bed, I continued to laze about reading the entirety of Shiver and finally watching Little Children. (My goodness, Patrick Wilson is handsome when he's out of Dan Dreiberg's glasses.

  • SPN: I loved "On the Head of a Pin" but, reading comments here and there, am I the only one? more on 04x16 and 04x17 )

  • Kings: I watched the first two episodes on the recommendation of [ profile] carta and other and, for now, it's a keeper. I love the premise, Ian McShane is deliciously terrifying, and I'm compelled to see where the story goes.

  • Dollhouse: I was one or two episodes away from ditching Dollhouse but the last two episodes were enough to keep me for a little while. )

  • The entire cast of ST:TNG is reuniting on Family Guy tonight! (Clip here.) AWESOME.

  • I can't believe I haven't mentioned this yet. The new Indigo Girls CD was released on Tuesday! Oh, I love, love, love them and this CD. The 2 disc edition has a 2nd CD of all acoustic versions. Just 24 days until they're here in Ann Arbor!

  • On 3/25, [ profile] carta did, "one year ago today, two years ago today, etc." memes and "two years ago today" was the reveal of four of the final five cylons. I remember that like it was yesterday. I missed the original airing of both parts of Crossroads arriving home from a week in London just after part II aired. I woke up at 5:30am Monday morning to watch both parts before work. Good grief. Crossroads BLEW MY MIND like few episodes of TV before or since. My original reaction from 3/26/07 is here. Also? Always and forever a Roslin/Adama shipper.

  • More on BSG: Here's a roundup on Daybreak Part II reviews

  • More on het OTPs: I love me some Rossi/Prentiss on Criminal Minds. I wish more people would write this (obviously perfect) pairing instead of the more conventional, "prettier" Hotch/Prentiss.

  • A friend took a trip to Tanzania and sent these 44957349579 photos of giraffes! After my late summer trip to Greece with [ profile] kiffle (!!!), I need to get myself on an African safari.

    I have limited plans for today. I'm trying to decide whether or not I'll actually get employee appraisals completed if I do them at home rather than at the office. I'd also like to get in a run before fitness boot camp. THAT'S IT. Lazy weekend for the win.
  • The Borders book club for A Lion Among Men is up! I really hope you'll check it out. Gregory McGuire is delightful. Perhaps, of particular interest, the third section is all about transformative fiction and the ins and outs of writing in the world of Oz.

    As I expected, I finished The Hunger Games before bed last night. The quick book description is:
      Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.

    The book is intense, emotional, and tremendously moving. It's a YA book so it's intended audience is teenagers but, like much YA sci-fi/fantasy, it's equally satisfying for adults. Also, if you think Stephenie Meyers can't write to save her life, I direct you to this book instead.

    Next up, Blood Meridian.

    I left work at 5pm to come home for a run and then I had a date. He came back to my place and, even in my 30's, even having been at his home, I still get nervous. But it was a good time and is maybe going somewhere.

    This is a crazy week. Tomorrow must be an early night for me because, on Wednesday, I'm driving to OH for a day of meetings. It's 3 1/2 hour each way and we're leaving Ann Arbor at 6am. TOO EARLY. Then, on Thursday, I have a work dinner and on Friday I fly to NY for a weekend with Chase.

    Before I go to bed, though, here's an awesome giraffe photo [ profile] powrhug sent me. Look how they love each other!

    Okay, a peach. Then bed.

    Baby giraffe takes its first steps!!

    Oh, my god, it's SO CUTE with it's knobby little knees and protective parents. *loves*

    I'd use my giraffe icon but this is a chance to show off the new BSG icon I snagged from cooloring. Sam & Kara. Like two twisted galaxies colliding.

    Today was a perfect Sunday. I was up early and had my bills paid and laundry done by noon. Then I headed out, with the top down, to buy new running sneakers. Shiny! Afterward, I stopped off at a frame shop to have my Bonnie & Clyde poster mounted.

    The early evening has been filled with Babylon 5 season 1 and Dr. Who season 2. David Tennant is so cute.

    It's been such a nice weekend I'm actually ready to face Monday.

    Like Water, Lying by [ profile] synecdochic

    Summary: Jack comes back to Colorado to visit, and Cam thinks he's lost Daniel's attention for the week. Except he hasn't, not at all, and maybe that's scarier.

    Um. Oh, my god. Still not coherent. It's the Jack, Daniel, and Cameron we've seen in Eurydice, After, Metaphor and Depth Charge and I think it works best if you've read these others but can certainly read as a stand alone fic. All three men are absolutely fascinating to read in this story both individually and in their dynamic with each other.

    Warnings for threesome (of sorts and which I don't think needs a warning because it's very, very hot) and BDSM.

    Random other stuff:

    BSG Season 3 promo pic! Less than two months to go!

    And [ profile] between_names sent me this photo of a baby giraffe. Baby animals are cute but baby giraffes are the cutest of them all!
