Manic Monday  
No school today because of the holiday, which meant lots of running around and Kidlet Entertainment. Among other things I taught Kidlet how to play Battleship (actually, NOT inspired by the twelvecolonies game, but by the front page of the Business section, talking about the upcoming Battleship MOVIE. yes, feature film. Also on the way, Candyland, and VIEW-MASTER).

We watched the premiere of Dexter last night.

I knew John Lithgow could do creepy, and... yeah. and also I don't need to see his naked ass EVER AGAIN. But I already love the complications with Dexter's accident, and Lundy being around (I keep thinking it's "Landy", which makes me think of Pamela Landy from the Bourne films, and then I wonder if they're like related or married or something, and it starts getting weird)

ANYWAY, Deb getting all flustered and babbly was cute and awesome.

Is it me or is Quinn even more of a dick this season? gah. This keeps up and I'm gonna hope Trinity or Anton or someone takes him out. (I'm not entirely sure what his motive is beyond thinking Dexter's a freak. Which, okay, is kind of true, but he hasn't been that weird around Quinn. I don't remember Quinn being suspicious of Dexter last season, though it was a while ago.)

Oh, the local news is reporting that the man who climbed into the grizzly bear exhibit is being held for psychiatric evaluation. NO! REALLY? Y'THINK?

I wonder if they're trying to put Quinn into the position that Doakes used to fill? The co-worker who suspects that Dexter is more than he seems. Because I thought he was just going to be a temporary character who made Deb's life hell for a while, but they do seem to be developing him somewhat. And I kind of like that he and Deb are partners, so to speak. I don't know if they actually HAVE partners in that department and on that level, but the fact that they've seemed to find some even ground is nice.

yeah, I had that thought that Quinn's going to be the new Doakes. It was just that his suspicion/dickishness toward Dexter seemed to come out of nowhere in the bathroom scene. Am I forgetting some interaction they had last season? It was implied by Deb's reaction that the hostility had been going on awhile - but I guess it could be something that started in the gap between seasons.

But yeah, it's nice that Deb has someone else around. Even if he's gonna end up messily dead at the rate he's going!

Oh! Did you maybe miss the scene in the beginning where Dexter was in court but really tired because of the baby, and he messed up his testimony on Quinn's case? He brought the wrong notes and testified about a whole other suspect and thus the evidence was thrown out and the suspect freed. Quinn was absolutely furious with him.

Although, as even Quinn said himself last night, he's pretty much an asshole regardless.

OH! THANK YOU! I totally missed that! Probably hubby channel flipping, grr. THat would definitely get Dexter on Quinn's bad side, yeah. NOW ALL IS EXPLAINED! :)
