What kind of world is it where my dentist appointment today was *less* painful than Tuesday's Gilmore Girls episode? I mean, honestly. (Only one teeny cavity that I'm getting filled Tuesday! Hurray for my teeth!)

Also, Jericho is really a terrible show. And yet I cannot stop watching it. Hmmm.

Oh and! Dies the Fire finally arrived from Amazon, so I can be all-apocalypse, all the time! Hurray!

ETA: Apparently, Dark Angel S2 actually is good for something! [livejournal.com profile] sirrogue just saw a Supernatural promo, and the following ensued:
Him: "Oh hey! Now I know who the other guy from Supernatural is!"
Me: "Yes, it's Dean and Alec. Except Dean isn't Dean, Alec is Dean."
Him: "Then who's Dean?"
Me: "Dean is Sam."
Him: "Who the hell is Sam?"

And I-don't-know's on third, so there.

I finally got around to watching the tivoed pilot of Jericho. I was not terribly impressed, but as there's a serious lack of post-apocalyptic television (HURRY UP BSG DAMMIT) I'll probably keep watching until it's inevitably cancelled. I realized as I was watching, though, that while I love post-apoc TV/books/movies etc, it's not really the apocalypse itself, or the immediate aftermath, that I'm interested in. It's how people go on living afterwards. So the original BSG miniseries-- while I do love it, it's not as compelling to me as the actual show is. Less "OMGWTFCYLONS our planets all got bombed to hell" and more "okay, we've got 50,000 people left in the human race on a bunch of crap-ass ships, *now* what do we do?"

In other post-apoc TV news, I got my box set of S1 Dark Angel from Amazon today. YAY YAY YAY. Also I got Sky High, which is an absolute genius movie.

And best of all, I don't have to go to work tomorrow morning! I can sleep in! OMG! *is really really excited* And then we're going to a Padres game tomorrow night!

...but do you ever have days when you just want to tell someone, or many someones, "Oh my god, you're an idiot, *please* shut up for the love of all that is holy"?

I kind of feel like that right now.

(But oooh, I look at my shiny new mood icons and am much less annoyed!)

(Also, I have been telling K-Joy about the good and the bad of Dark Angel, while she regales me with tales of Prison Break and Grey's Anatomy. It is excellent fun. Today I told her about how there is an eye in team. And about "X5-599, reporting for duty. I have a donor for you." AWESOME.)

(OH GOD ALSO. We watched an ep of S2 today and I discovered why Logan has permastubble. I take back everything I ever said. KEEP THE PERMASTUBBLE. NEVER SHAVE. GYAAAAAAH. I was like "who the fuck is that?" and Rogue's like "Michael Shanks?" and then we realized it was Logan and GYAAAAAAAAAAH.)

I will not let season two kill my love of Dark Angel. I will not let season two kill my love of Dark Angel. But the wangst! And the HAIR! It's really quite dreadful. *clings to season 1 and the hilarious wedding episode*

Yesterday we went to Disneyland! I had never been! It was AWESOME! But very very very hot! But awesome! And going right at opening was totally worth it even if we did have to leave home at 6:30 am, because we were on the second boat of the day for Pirates and thus did not have to stand in the ridiculously long line! Also, SPACE MOUNTAIN OMG.

Today was my last day of gymnastics. I managed a forward roll on the balance beam (with a pad on it) and a front flip on the mini-trampoline. A very exciting day!

Many of my friends made excellent showings at WorldCon this weekend. I wish I could have gone. Congrats to [livejournal.com profile] ajmeow, [livejournal.com profile] twjudy, and the rest of [livejournal.com profile] hcc_cosplay on their Best in Show masquerade victory; to [livejournal.com profile] kelbebop, [livejournal.com profile] scendan; and the other P3 people on their standing-room-only shows and their Masquerade entry, and [livejournal.com profile] colleency and the Lux After Dark folks on their Masq halftime show!

Yarg. I knew going in that I wasn't going to like S2 of Dark Angel as much, but I watched the first ep anyway. And it made me grrrrr! They weren't kidding when they said they toned down the post-apocalyptic stuff since it was right after 9/11. Which I understand, but dammit, the post-apocalyptic feel was a huge part of why the show was so awesome, for me. ("There's a dead guy under there." "Yeah, we know, he's the foul line.") Also, someone needs to go back in time five years and feed Jessica Alba some cookies or something, and also re-curl her hair. And then it's all with a rehash of Buffy/Angel and the stupid curse, which was dumb the first time anyway, except apparently the writers were like "ooh, but that wasn't enough, let's up the ante and make it so they can't even be near each other! that'll be great!" Yeah not so much, actually.

Jensen Ackles had better be worth it, for serious. I've been promised that he can actually act and that I will stop thinking of him as Eric Brady. (Which, how can I stop thinking of him as Eric? Every time I look at him, I see him lecturing Sami over something. And how is it that he managed to get out of soaps and be a Real(ish) Actor while people just as good as him, or better, never make it? The world is an unfair place, truly.)

Clearly, this is all the fault of those damn Harry Potter plagiarists. I mean, all their shit was going down around the same time as this, right?

They cancelled my gymnastics class tonight! This means I get to go home right away after work and watch the Netflixed Dark Angel DVDs that arrived in the mail while I was at GenCon! And that I don't have to do the forward handspring drill when I'm still totally wiped from this weekend! Exclamation points are great!

YAY!!!!

Lantis 3x04, 'Sateda' (this show is so full of awesome crack!) )

In other news, the Dark Angel obsession has reached epic proportions. I am saved only by the fact that there won't be more episodes until Monday night. Desperately need more fic that doesn't suck.

Mmm, sleepy now.
