*flutters by*  
I've had an entry open for two days now. Did I mention it was spring break for the kidlet? Yeah. Next week I'll just be gone on vacation, but this week... home with a highly bored, highly energetic little kid. He doesn't want to go to bed or sleep either (he's usually a pretty good sleeper, but not this week).

But despite this, we had our parent teacher conference for the middle term and found that I have the most amazing child in all of kindergarten. Or, y'know, words to that effect. :)

In dumb project news, I've been trying to finally get "Meteor Storm" off my DVR by saving it to disk. I was hoping I could connect to the DVR and grab the VOB or whatever file it is, but my computer won't talk to it. boo. So I video captured the movie, and it inexplicably saved at mediocre resolution. The whole POINT of making my own was to do a high-def version for pretty caps. I'm full of technological ineptness this week. bah So I'm kind of watching it again, as I cut it: the premise is still ridiculous, but it's watchable and pretty. Really, it could be worse.

(in Skiffy Movie news, I am CRUSHED to discover that Misha Collins' Skiffy Saturday spectacular Stonehenge Apocalypse doesn't air until at least June, looks like. BOO. C'mon, STONEHENGE APOCALYPSE... how can that not be awesomely bad?)

(three zillion years later in this tab... Kidlet didn't go down until almost 10. ARRRRGH)


Justified continues to rock my world -- it's such a nice change of pace to have crooks be actual small time criminals and dirtbags working the angles and betraying each other for five g's, rather than (a) criminal masterminds or (b) serial killers, like most cop shows. It's light-hearted and obviously the drama's heightened, but in some ways, it feels more grounded in reality (than, say, a show like Castle which is fun, too, but very teevee-ish). Three eps in, I'm still liking it (and I have a notoriously short attention span).

Before that, there was LOST.

SUN AND JIN. Both looking very hot. (or um, body-doubled in the case of Yunjin Kim unless that was quite the Wonderbra, but still that was a great scene). Jin almost crying over pictures of Ji-Yeon, omg. How cold of Paik to make Jin carry his own death payment -- though, dude, you could hire a killer in Korea, couldn't you? Though I gather Keamy's worked for him for awhile. Oh no, not AU!Sun! Though she's either going to meet Jack or Juliet in the hospital, I'm guessing.

Loved Sun's rant on the Island and how she didn't buy Flocke for one single moment (although, at the time, he was actually telling the truth, amusingly enough). Actually Jin didn't either -- he was just waiting until Flocke went away to try to escape before Widmore grabbed him.

Also great: Richard's re-energized take-charge-ness. And Jack being so sweet with Sun. Claire being all -- "Do you mind if I kill Kate soon?" heh.

Okay, so Widmore is not in cahoots with Smokey after all. I think. Given the scene at the pylons seems likely anyway. So he told Jin what he believes to be true: that if Smokey leaves the Island none of their loved ones will exist, which sounds bad. Except it might be referring to Sideways Verse? Maybe. Unless the Sideways verse is what happens if the whole thing resets with a new candidate. They do seem connected in some way, and I'm still pretty sure they're the epilogue of the story, but hard to say still.

I dvr'd V and hopefully I'll get a chance to watch tomorrow.

I would love to figure out a way to burn Meteor Storm off my DRV. So you are way ahead of me because I have no idea how to even begin.

And yes, despite it's silly premise, anything with Trucco randomly riding his motorcycle saving people's lives, while simultaneously, also being in charge of the evacuation of the entire city is full of win. No matter what. \o/

I know right? It's just... so full of win, my eyes slide right over the ridiculousness. It's hilarious how in the beginning Kari's character and her assistant/BFF totally go hang a lantern on the whole thing -- "WE HAVE NO IDEA WHY SanFran KEEPS GETTING HIT, IT JUST DOES, OKAY? SHUT UP AND WATCH THE PRETTY". lololol I kind of love it even more the second time around.

Dude, speaking of Trucco, can you link me to that Sabrina pic where he has the guitar? I was going to macro it during 12Days, and discovered I don't seem to actually have it somehow. :(

Yes Lost was finally awesome last might after two weeks of stalling. I mean really just about everything we found out last week could have happened in about two minutes but whatever we're finally getting some forward motion. so I won't complain (much). I love Jin and Sun they were adorable last night. I damn near cried when Jin was looking at those pictures of their little girl.

Considering my great love for Richard and Jacob and Esau/MIB, I'll have to disagree with you about last week, but this week was a great mix of characters and obvious movement in heading toward the ending.

Hahahahaha, that was my thought, too. Like, there wasn't that much underneath the buttoned sweater, did they grow while she was unbuttoning?! (Yes, I'm five.)

And now I'm depressed about TV's expectations that all women have a big rack. Bleh.

I found Jack surprisingly bearable in this episode! It was a pleasant change! Also, Sawyer looked really good! And Richard too!

Apparently all that matters on this show for me is that the men look hot! And that I can use exclamation marks!

Actually, I've generally found Jack pretty good this season. It IS a nice change, that's for sure! (look, I abuse exclamation points too! *g*)

MMM... yes, return-to-badass Richard WAS indeed hot. Glad to see that having his faith restored helped him get back to his usual self.

heh. Considering I'm spending my free time converting "Meteor Storm" into a version I can keep FOREVER AND EVER, hot men DO actually make all the difference!
