My Summer So Far

Lolcats and funny pictures

Monday was VERY productive. I met all my daily goals early and finished reading 4 books I'd started the past few months.

Yesterday, I picked up the boy from the airport. He wanted to go to Taco Garage for lunch, and while we were there, Jackie Earle Haley walked in! Now, you may remember the boy LOVES Watchmen. He leaned over and said, "Rorschach just walked in." He started to go over, then decided not to bother him, but as we walked out, we walked past his table and he couldn't help himself. JEH was SO nice, and the two geeked out over Watchmen for a few minutes. Was cool.

A big storm rolled in again last night, and the skylight in the living room started leaking. This is new. Also annoying. Then I heard a loud crash and went looking. A big branch fell from the tree on the patio onto the patio, across the electric lines that lead from the pole to the house. So I didn't sleep well, worrying about that. I called City Public Service first thing this AM and the man came out to look at it just now, and will send a crew in an hour. So, annoying.

I have managed to meet my goals AND watch the first season plus a few episodes of The Tudors. Tonight I hope to watch Shutter Island.

Then there was GLEE. Did you see it? I LOVED it, but I wish there'd been more Will and Emma, more of Rachel's reaction to Finn's declaration and more Quinn.

I started a short story for TWRP. I'm using Henry Cavill as the hero.

I would have geeked out over Bad News Bears and Human Target! LOL LOVE him in HT.

We loved Glee, too. I think as a group, we fans are doomed to dissatisfaction. They can't fit into each episode everything we want every week. :) Yes, definitely want more Will and Emma (always), but thrilled over the subtle shift in Will and Sue's relationship.

Great start to your summer, but ugh on the house/tree/storm stuff. Hope it all resolved okay.

I wanted to say something about HT, but we'd already taken enough of his time. It wasn't until last night that we remembered he was in the new Nightmare on Elm St., too.

The other thing I would have liked in Glee was for Quinn's mom to have had a better reason to leave her dad. Like, say, HE KICKED HER DAUGHTER OUT. LOVED Sue at the end. LOVED her.

The tree is down. Watching the news now and seeing the terrible flooding in New Braunfels last night. 10 inches overnight!

Oh, yes, that Quinn/Mom stuff was a bit underdeveloped. But then, I did feel it was all intentional, not haphazard. Like, she was saying all the wrong things, and Quinn was looking at her like she was saying all the wrong things. And they didn't show Quinn cuddling up with her later, after the birth, so maybe we'll get some more complexity out of it later.

Oh, very true. I just love Quinn. I was also glad to see some of the other kids sing. I don't think I've ever seen Santana with a solo. I love Kurt's voice.
