So I read Turn Coat last night, which was awesome as I've come to expect from the Dresden books. Somehow, Butcher always manages to bring it in a major league way. Seriously people, you should start reading them, they are delicious fictional crack and will make you happy. Sadly at least part of all three of my 3 fic ideas are totally jossed by the events of the book. But the events were worth being jossed by, even if sad.

This year, I finally attempted a seder of my own (after planning to for like 3 years and flaking or giving in to family pressure). It could have gone better; it could have gone worse. It was just Jeremy and I and [livejournal.com profile] sophia_helix and [livejournal.com profile] actoplasm, which was good in the sense of my only having a very small table, but weird in that I was the only one who'd ever been to a seder before. I felt sort of awkward, at least until the wine kicked in.

On BPAL news, I definitely need to swap my Bhagdad for one that is more spicy. Lady Macbeth, Frumious Bandersnatch, and March Hare are all lovely on me. Juke Joint smells great in the bottle but turned sort of baby powdery on me, losing it's refreshing edge. I'm trying Siren right now; so far it has sweetened up somewhat on my skin but still seems distressingly woody (Must be the white ginger since I doubt it's the jasmine, vanilla, or apricot), probably just as well given my issues with ginger.

With the TV season wrapping up quickly (Oh Life! Why did you have to pick the pace back up and end awesomely and therefore make me sad that you will not get renewed even though it is your own fault you wasted this season for the most part? Oh Sarah Connor Chronicles! How are you so awesome?) it is sort of accidentally nice that Fox has kept fucking with Bones' schedule and doing weird empty weeks, because now there is still a lot of it left. More even than Dollhouse with it's late start. Does anyone know how many episodes Castle has this season?


Ugh! I never should have tried BPAL with ginger in it! It is making me want to die as well as not smelling good. Time to go scrub myself clean and then I will reward myself by trying Bengal on at last, which in the bottle smells perfect. Then in a few hours Jeremy will come home and we will go enjoy the fact that Little Caesars has opened up right down the street (my favorite big pizza franchise and one that is generally disappearing) and Jeremy got paid today and we have paid all our bills. But first, to get rid of this terrible judgment error of scent.
lodessa: lol (life-google myself)
My BPAL came today! I am currently wearing Frumious Bandersnatch because the some of it escaped the imp when I was sniffing them all. It smells SO GOOD (spicy-sweet-fruity honeysuckle) but is possibly disappearing too fast on me.

On first sniff: My bottle of Baghdad seems way less spicy and more musk/soapy than [livejournal.com profile] sophia_helix's but hopefully that's an in the bottle issue and it will not wear that way. Siren seems a little musky too. Bengal, Lady Macbeth, March Hare, and Juke Point smell promising and I am excited to try them all out over the course of the next week.

My frimps are: Anne Bonny (intriguing), Wolfsbane (bleh), Golden Priapus (possibly awesome?), and Nuit (meh).

I will report on all of these as I experience them more fully.


I spent the evening Facebook stalking former acquaintances with [livejournal.com profile] sophia_helix, which was amazing as always, and trying to decide on recipes for tomorrow night's Seder. Also a stupid quiz tried to tell me I should live in Fresno... ummm NO.

I am way behind on talking about TV (but up to date on T:SCC [omg wtf how are you so amazing], Dollhouse[wow this show is really stepping it up at last], Bones[finally we get to where we should have been at the beginning of the season], Life[better but still underwhelming, they have wasted this season], and Castle [LOVE!]... all of which I am feeling happy with). Also I finished watching season 1 of Dexter, which was just as compelling as promised, possibly I will talk about this when I get around to summing up Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica (two sci-fi shows that are polar opposites in how to make a TV show... or how not to in one case).

AND THE NEW DRESDEN FILES BOOK COMES OUT TOMORROW! Of course this means all fic writing needs to be put on hold for new canon absorption, but I am seriously ridiculously excited.
lodessa: lol (bones-booth-bang bang)
So today I caught up on this season's TV.

In Brief:

Dear Bones,

You know I totally love you, but I really feel like you need to step it up a little this season. Maybe you just haven't gotten your flow back but it's been a while. Please institute plot line that does not involve Angela's exciting love life.

kthnx,

Me



Dear Sarah Connor Chronicles,

You continue to be super awesome and bring it. You are really making every other show look bad in comparison. Please do not make me regret saying I love all these biblical references by doing something terrible and pedantic.

Much Love,

Me


Dear Life,

You are a really awesome show and I appreciate you trying to do something unexpected in the romance department, but NO... just no. New boss is gross, okay. I like the way you are working with the rest of his character but I am not going to buy him/Dani. So please stop. Quite likely different casting would have fixed it but there would still be the creepy boss stalker factor. And you didn't cast it differently and it's aesthetically unpalatable as is. Also, I miss old boss. She was interesting and innovative.

Yours Truly,

Me

Ps. Why is episode 2 of this season's Life missing?
lodessa: lol (bsg-daddy issues)
Hello internet. I've been abysmally out of touch since leaving my job. Basically this is because I've been busy relaxing, playing video games, and catching up on visits (so far my maternal grandmother,[livejournal.com profile] countouttheday, my father/sister/brother, and soon [livejournal.com profile] sainfoin_fields and possibly my aunt and paternal grandparents). Also catsitting [livejournal.com profile] sophia_helix's LilycatTM. Basically I feel so much better (despite a bizarre sore throat) and quitting was the best thing I've done in a long time.

I will be online more in the next two days, as I need to be writing pinch hits (although possibly only one) for [livejournal.com profile] asoiaf_equinox and my Doctor Who femslash exchange fic, among other things. Also expect a write up on Season 1 of Life (which I totally liked and fulfills my kink for tough female cop detectives with daddy cop issues and men who broaden their horizons and deconstruct their reality... even though Charlie isn't a gateway to the supernatural like Angel and Harry Dresden) and the last two week's the Sarah Connor Chronicles (once I watch this week's as I was busy and didn't get to it Monday on account of Warhammer 40K Tabletop) plus the last two weeks of Bones and possibly season 2 of Torchwood depending on how fast we tear through that.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] sophia_helix and I feel that we must go see Lustra (SCOTTIE DOESN'T KNOW) as they are going to be in town on Friday. Y/Y?
