Isn't it  

It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a bop_radar.

Which song was this lyric from?

Get your own lyrics:

You know what really is? The fact that this is my most hated song ever. Followed closely by 'Say My Name'.

In other news. I hate my job. And! OMG, this season has been a total borefest. Until episode 3.11! Which totally rocked! I can't express my happiness that Dexter asked Deb to be his best man! He should have, of course, done this from the start, but apparently they needed to write a whole season of boredom or something. *shrug* Deb as best man = perfect! Also, Deb all choked up about finding out Harry cheated on her mom was pretty amazing. I could not believe that Dexter let that slip... I mean, I see the psychology that led him to do so, but I still can't believe he was that sloppy. But who am I to complain when it means there is actual tension back in the series again (at last! I couldn't give a fuck about Miguel and found this season as unsuspenseful in inverse proportion to Season's 2 riveting).

That scene... where she found out! *heartthump* And then the one where Anton talked about the skinner... eeek!

And omg, how much do I love that DEB is now the one with a pal in the records department?!! \o/ She is THIS CLOSE. *makes squinty close fingers* I'm finally excited about the show again--pity there's only one ep left. :/

Of happyfulness is All He Wants For Christmas, mskatej's delightful exploration of Clark's feelings for Lois, Christmas 2008 (season villain notwithstanding)!

I use this icon in honour of Lee Week, which is most happy-making and which I insist is still continuing because:
a) I was terribly busy and need to catch up on some of the posts, and
b) it's always Lee Week.

Also, I may have succumbed to the gayness of both Merlin and Crusoe. Somebody saaaaaaave meeeeeeeee! (Oh whooops, wrong gay show.)

The eclectic-ity of this post is brought to you by South Australian shiraz and a really REALLY bad day at work.

That song always cracks me up because I keep remembering sophomore year of high school english where my teacher asked us to define "ironic" and people kept quoting that song. Alanis Morissette (however you spell her name) annoys me though. I watched her sing on a late night show and it was just really painful to watch. :\

I'm sorry you hate your job. *hugs*

I read that Clois fic! It was amazing! :D

Dude, everyone's talking about Merlin. I really need to see that show.

Somebody saaaaaaave meeeeeeeee! (Oh whooops, wrong gay show.)

LMAO! :D

Oh gawd, I feel your teacher's pain! *facepalm* Worst. Lyrics. Ever.

Merlin is great! Not in the way I expected. But great! (I kind of totally love/adore/worship the female character, but hey, cute gay boys also good.)
brokenmnemonic: APC - Judithbrokenmnemonic on December 9th, 2008 10:57 am (UTC)
Isn't that Alanis Morissette's "Ironic" providing the source of the quote?
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on December 9th, 2008 11:02 am (UTC)
Yes. *deathglare* The most fucking inaccurate song and annoying whiny singer ever. (Sorry, I know you like her. :p)

I've enjoyed Dexter a lot more than you did this season, for a show like this to work it needs to ratchet up the tension in different ways and for Dexter to try and have a truly honest relationship with another person was fun (for me) to watch. Plus knwoing that Jimmy Smits has been giving salsa lessons to Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter...let's just say that those two don't seem like the most coordinated people in the world...makes me smile. Also, the actor playing Deb's partner has a role on GG that sounds very promising. But I love Deb's story best, her getting to be best man and the scene when she found out that her brother was becoming a father were the best of the season.

It was great finally getting to see that Deb has a friend, even if she is in the basement!

K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Dexterbop_radar on December 9th, 2008 08:48 pm (UTC)
I think the problem for me with the friendship plot was that I never bought it. It seemed obvious that Miguel was playing him and it also seemed ridiculously naive of Dexter to think he could have a friend--especially after last season. (The disconnect between season 2 and 3 was a big problem for me--I didn't like the way they pressed the 'reset' button on Dexter at the end of season 2, after having had him question Harry's code so much during that season.)

I love Deb's story best, her getting to be best man and the scene when she found out that her brother was becoming a father were the best of the season.
I agree. For me there haven't been nearly enough good Deb moments this season--I watch for her more than anything else.
Kate: Can you dig it?mskatej on December 9th, 2008 11:28 am (UTC)
Mine was "Imagine there's no mskatej. It's easy if you try."

Does that mean I'm equivalent to Heaven? Coz I can dig that.

Merlin has eaten fandom. I feel like I should give it a second chance but then I think, if anyone is immune to it it's probably me. :/

Ah, babe! It didn't get me either...I've never been into that sword and sorcery stuff so it's a definite no go for me! The broad who plays Morgana is way hot though, I'd happily watch her in something else.

You know I'm still only up to 4.2 because I don't want the end to come any quicker? I'll have to catch up soon but the longer I go without watching, the more there is still to watch...

LEE WEEK. INDEED. GRUMPY LEE ICON.

(Also I've only seen Dexter S1, but Deb is awesome)
(And I am watching 'Smallville' again because I have developed this thing for bimbos in green leather. I hate being a pawn of the writers).

You have not then encountered the Episode That Broke My Soul! Oh happy you!

Deb is 80% of my reason for watching Dexter. At least.

:D We are all pawns to the writers with that show--but I don't mind so much because they do good fanservice. ;)

Re: gayness of both Merlin and Crusoe
HAHAHA! Yes, oops.

I'm going to be very curious to see what the collective fannish opinion on Merlin is. Methinks I don't have it (I think Merlin is an idiot). The leads are verrrry charming though--particularly Arthur.

It is, actually! QoT is taking over the reins and it seems as though it will at least be an "Apollo Fortnight." Or we're calling it the Pythian festival now, or something.

I had some things I need to finish posting too. :)

Hee I did that meme twice and both times I got Elvis songs. ("a hunk-a hunk-a burning Taragel" and "a little less taragel, a little more action please").

Sorry work is the suck. I've been there. (Am still there quite often, but trying to remember to feel lucky I have a job with all the publishing layoffs happening.)

I watched S1 Dexter and enjoyed it but could not get into S2...no idea why.

Oh true! I should have 'you're lucky you still have a job' stuck above my computer or something. It's totally the same here.

I preferred Season 2 Dexter to Season 1--but Season 3 left me nearly completely cold, which I was very sad about because Deb is one of my fave characters.

K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Clois did we?bop_radar on December 10th, 2008 01:02 am (UTC)
I think Merlin may be one of those fandoms where the fandom is better than the show itself? ;) But yeah... it does have some charm. I have trouble with the kiddiness, but I love one of the female characters a lot and it's just bad enough to be funny while also taking itself Very Seriously.

Job CRISIS. Srsly.

She's definitely more your taste than mine. ;) Ironic was not a song made for English majors or editors...

Merlin is, i'm finding, rather adorable. I'm not sure I feel the love *quite* as much as many people, but I can see that the fandom could be a lot of fun.

Yeah, I am succumbing--I feel like I'm only half in love with it so far, but I can feel the tugging. Also it seems like the fandom would be a lot of fun, even if the show's not perfect.
