Work is kicking my ass and I am chatty so short break to post about random new favourite things:
1. Blue streaks in my hair. So fun! (More subtle than they sound, promise: they're on underlayers and just peak out sometimes.)
2. Bollywood classes. We're learning a routine to Chaliya Chaliya from Tashan (except thankfully not in bikinis)
3. A book that made me cry! First one in years. The Knife of Never Letting Go... it's young adult fiction but it has 'fuck off, kidlets!' marketing for a reason. Very, very dark, but very cool. Don't read it in public, as I did. I'm a little nervous to start the second book in case a) it's anywhere near as tense or b) it's a letdown.
In other news, I've flunked another fandom... So, I've fallen off the Eric bandwagon. I was on it when Godric was alive, but now Eric is boring to me again. :( Clearly I've flunked the prerequisite for being in this fandom... particularly as I continue to be confused by the Bill hate. I mean, he's a limited character and he has faults, but it's not like he, oh I don't know, keeps people chained in a basement. And he just saved the entire town and was a total romantic sweetheart to Sookie. And yet he STILL gets hate?! o.O I loved that he was all giggly when they were dancing. Bill giggles are cute! I could have smacked Sookie for not saying yes, but she did have a few awesome moments in this episode (with Maryanne). I'm officially not ok with a Season 3 that will no doubt be built around various plot reasons preventing the marriage long enough for Eric to get his talons into Sookie. If I watch it, I'll keep my pain to myself as clearly no one else watches the show the way I do. Bill's basically the only character I still find halfway decent (and I do only find him halfway since he still, you know, kills people). Jason just shot someone. Tara's an emotional cripple. Sam did finally grow a bit of a backbone (note: after a nudge from Bill) and they don't give Lafayette enough plot. I do like Hoyt but I don't like Jessica/Hoyt angst. I want only Jessica/Hoyt joy! They were cute for three eps. Now they frustrate me. :( Though Hoyt telling his mother to go to hell was probably the most pleasing part of the episode for me. Sigh. I miss Godric! *goes back to vidding him*
I watched the first eps of
Glee... hmm... just hasn't really clicked with me. It does not make me laugh. Somehow it's not cheesy in a way I like. Probably the fact I don't like any of the characters is holding me back. Also I'm not a big fan of that musical theatre/choir girl style of singing. The lead chick has a great voice, but it does nothing for me. So I guess that's that.
And now sadly I must edit some more...
