I meant for this post to include more than this. But, after more than an hour wrestling with Yahoo IDs, I have finally gotten with the Naughts and created a del.icio.us account
! I have added the info to my profile under 'external services' and it makes me happy, in an extremely low-threshold sort of way. Sidenote: Yahoo is the most awful 90s holdover semi-sketchy piece of crap that needs to go out of business yesterday, Y/Y?
I went with sparowhawk
to see Sherlock Holmes
again Friday night and I still love that movie so much. When I got home I took many characterization notes in my notebook. I think I'm going to sign up for holmes_big_bang
because a) I work well with deadlines and b) writers get paired with a beta reader and an artist. \0/ Art for my writing! How cool would that be? Pretty damn cool.
I also, uncharacteristically, made plans and carried through on them to sit in front of the TV and watch TV this week. Normally I only do this for the new episodes of NCIS
, but I also watched the season premieres of Burn Notice
and of White Collar
. I can see why so many people like White Collar
. The OT3 is so obvious and so respectful of all 3 of them! Burn Notice
is still high-octane, mindless mostly fun, though every time Michael Weston says that it's his job to help people I say LOLWHAT? Give me a break! Clearly the show resides in a fantasy world, and I'm not talking about Miami. Also, everyone has read this post by Center of Gravitas on how, in Burn Notice
, everyone (including Fi! *gnashes teeth*) needs a straight white man to save them
, right? So this is enough for me to file it in the "guilty pleasure" column, though I do think the tradecraft is plausible enough to keep in mind for future writing purposes.
I should go run before it starts raining.
