bluegeek: (Glee - Tinkerbelle/applause)
I just finished watching season 1 of Glee.

I think I need a cigarette.


Alright, so, I'll likely be editing my remaining gleecaps tomorrow and can start posting them tomorrow evening.

I realize that I'm not exactly subtle in my thoughts about the episodes during my recaps, and that the recaps have been getting longer and longer as the season wore on, but... Does anyone have any questions for me (whether on the show, the characters, the storyline, etc, or how I approach the recaps), suggestions, scenes you suggest I rewatch, etc?

Anyone feel like squeeing over anything in particular? Such as the Kurt and Burt Story Hour *ahem*

My only request is that you not spoil me for any episodes I've yet to see, so the only safe season 2 episodes are "Original Song", "Born This Way", and the final episode (the New York one).

Talk to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! *begs and flaila*

Sadly, there will be no Gleecap updates for a day or three. I've exhausted my stash of them for the moment and need a few days to rebuild. I've got almost-days-off coming up later this week though (in a row! It is terribly exciting.) so I hope to watch more. I'm so close to finishing season one and I'm curious how things will all fall out. I mean, Figgins did threaten to shut down the club if they didn't win the competition, and there is a season 2 (the first part's DVDs are currently sitting on my DVD shelf to prove it) so I guess that's kind of a no-brainer, but still. So many shenanigans left!

I'm kind of enjoying not knowing a whole lot about what's going on in this part of the show. I'm hoping my enthusiasm continues even as we get to the later parts of the second season where I've seen some of the episodes already so I don't have as many surprises in store for me.

I'm also wondering how my gleecaps would have been different if I didn't know anything at all about the future of the show. Like, would I have hated Puck more if I didn't know that he kinda simmers down a bit and is less of an ass? Would I have been more outraged about poor Kurt never getting any action if I didn't know that Darren Criss was gonna warbler his way into the poor boy's life?

Anyways, we shall see.

In other news, I went to a con today! It was fun. My co-con-goer friend cosplayed as Misa from Death Note and she was awesome. It was her first con and she pulled together her costume for $23 including kick-ass $5 boots and she looks fantastic. I am in awe. I was not dressed up in any fun way at all, which is sad. Oh well. Even if I had planned a decent cosplay costume I've been too busy and exhausted lately to even try to pull it off.

We have plans to try to figure out good costumes for next year, though. I would love to go as Sherlock and John, as would she. The problem is that the boys in the first series are definitely dressed for cold weather sleuthing and it is a very warm-weather con. Fluffy jumpers are not good for this con. Heh. I was also thinking of River Song from DW, though she doesn't have a really iconic outfit to choose from, other than the space suit from her first sighting, and I don't wanna do that. I've got the hair for her, so that's a start. Same with Kaylee from Firefly, I'm not sure which of her "looks" to choose from, but I do have a cute parasol already. Ooooh, or Mycroft Holmes! A sharp suit, a smug expression, and an umbrella! That would be perfect! OOOH! Or IDRIS! OMG! I would LOVE to be Idris! The costume would be tough to make though. I think I'd have to sew it rather than just collect pre-made pieces like I could get away with for Mycroft or John or Kaylee. I do not sew well. At all.

I bought about 4 boxes of pocky (POCKY!) and one of the Fushigi Yugi mangas I didn't have yet, as well as 2 t-shirts. One of the tardis (it is sparkly!) and one of Maslow's hierarchy of zombie needs. I can post pictures later this week is anyone wants.

Anyways, after the con friend and I returned to my place and ate dinner (roasted eggplant and brussel sprouts, and channa masala) while watching the live-action Death Note movies. 'Twas fun and heart-wrenching.

All in all a good day off. Wish I could have more than just one day, but I must be patient. That time will come.

OHOHOH! And I now am the proud recipient of KURT AND MERCEDES VOGUE WALLPAPER! Heee! I am kind of amazed that people find the recaps entertaining enough to read, and now [ profile] dizilla has rocked my world with a desktop after a I drooled a couple recaps ago. Squee!

So I finally finished one of my WiPs. I need to give it a good strong polishing, but at least the meat of it is done. Why can't I bring myself to just do it? I don't know. I figured I just needed a bit of distance following finishing that draft and starting the polish so I walked away from it for most of the day. Doing other stuff so I can look at it with fresher eyes is always a good idea anyways.

Only now I can't even bring myself to look at the file.

I also need to be packing, and dealing with a few issues that have popped up this weekend, and doing some massive cleaning to prep for guests.

On a positive note, I did go out for a lovely dinner with my parents, so that is a nice thing.

I have just finished reading A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson and I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it.

Contains some spoilers, but if you know your typical romance story themes and endings than it won't come as much of a surprise... )


So yes, now to decide what's next. Perhaps this time it will actually be Mansfield Park?


Also, question for the fannish folk interested in sharing...

If you have a story/series of ficlets that, while not while not strictly related to each other (are intended to be read completely independently of each other) are linked by a common theme, do you prefer to read them as they are written or only once the collection is complete? So, I guess I'm asking: Read in installments or in one-go?

Was canceled for 4 hours of my shift tonight. This means I got to spend more time at mother's day dinner with my family and and can try to sneak in a little time at B2S tonight. Whee!

La de dah

So I'm currently sitting in a hotel room with a coworker and hanging out. We are at a 2-day conference and decided to stay local to the conference site rather than deal with the rush-hour driving back and forth between home(s) and the conference center. She let me play with her iTouch and now I kinda really want one badly. As we are constantly being canceled from shifts at work my paychecks have not exactly been supportive of impulse purchases of this magnitude. Ah well, it'll go on the "save for" list and perhaps someday be indulged in :)

Upon my return home tomorrow afternoon I will need to try really hard to take a nap for a couple of hours so that I may survive staying up as late as possible tomorrow night. Why? Because I have to work nights this weekend (And believe me, I did not volunteer for this, this weekend) and am trying to switch my schedule over really quickly. It will suck and I'll spend most of next week recovering, but I'll have to suck it up because it is, after all, my job. C'est la vie. Sadly, it means that with [ profile] bridge2sickbay's new later hours I will not be able to participate this week.

I'm trying to dredge up the energy to force myself to concentrate on one of my multiple WiP fics, but failing at that since I think right now I'd really rather read the new Charlaine Harris book. Or take a shower. Haven't yet decided which.

So my plans for tomorrow and Saturday fell through. I'm sad not to get the opportunity to visit a friend, but happy to not have to drive 3 hours so that I can help move furniture and clean stuff. It also means that I cannot beg/borrow/steal her tasty chicken recipes that I've been coveting for over a year now. Sadness.

Instead I will probably be a bum and do absolutely nothing. I'm not entirely against the "nothing" plan. ;)

Still have a class tomorrow though. Semi-early, woe.
