Happy Monday, everyone! :D Have some cuteness
In a good mood today, as I had a good day yesterday. Lots of TV, lots of chores, some reading and some hacking. Bot's quote database is now online again. *bounces* I had forgotten to reinstall MySQL when I restarted bot back up.
So, TV. I watched Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
, which means I am walking around humming "so long so long so long so long" over and over. Which is why I am going to go to Walgreens during lunch to get more batteries for my Rio, so i can get the song out of my mind. Good movie, though. Still don't really like Zaphod's characterization in the movie, and Alan Rickman's voice as Marvin tends to distract me, but I like everyone else. LOVE Trillian. She is teh awesome.
Next up: first disc of Invader Zim
. It's been in my queue for-freaking-ever, and for some reason I kept bumping it down, and down, and down... Finally decided I might as well rent it. I didn't finish the disc, because it bored me. But it might be one of those things that grows on me and is awesome in retrospect, like Monty Python
. I was "meh" about Monty Python when I saw it, but then would crack up laughing anytime anybody quoted it. Since I now hear Zim saying "GIR!" in my mind, maybe it will be the same. I took the rest of the discs off my queue for now, but who knows, maybe I'll add them back.
Finally: Star Trek: The Next Generation
, season one disc one. *snerks* The Signal
was so right when they called ST:TNG's Enterprise
"a flying office building". I couldn't help laughing at how plush
everything was, and how everything is controlled with BUTTONS instead of, like, controllers or joysticks. It's rather unbelievable. But ST:TNG was one of the first shows i ever got fanatic about, and it was like seeing an old friend again. Yeah, there's cheesiness and snerkiness, but I still love these characters, and there's a lot of interesting ideas in their plots. So it'll be fun watching it all again. Looking forward to seeing the Borg, and Guinan, and more Q.
Wait, not quite finally. I also rewatched an ep of Battlestar Galactica
. Getting itchy for second season. Is it silly of me that I'm kind of :( about having the UK edition of the first season because that means the boxes won't match when I buy the second season? *snerks at self* I have to pay some more bills this month, but once they are paid I am buying the BSG soundtrack. AND the Firefly one, too, which I believe comes out this week! *dances* But I'm really looking forward to Season Two of BSG, which comes out on December 20th--NEPHEW DAY!!!
*bounces about like a spazz* I am SO. FREAKING. EXCITED. about the two upcoming kidlets. I cannot wait
to meet them. Not too much longer until my nephew arrives, yay! And while I can't wait to meet my new neice, either, I'm hoping she stays put as long as possible. So, January sometime, then. That's still not that far.
I tried to sign up for the Netflix settlement but it won't work from here. I'll have to try from home, later. I was thinking about bumping my membership level up a notch or two anyway, so hey, this gives me a chance to try it for a month FREE!
Not gonna finish the book by tomorrow. Ah well. Still going to buy the new book tomorrow, though. Which means I will likely see the crush on the bus! :D :D :D
Getting Chipotle for lunch, yay! Mmm... Chipotle.
