Yes, yes... I'm still alive!  
Holy Crap.  It's been a month since my last entry.  

I won't get all "woe-is-me, work sucks, been too busy" as an excuse - but will just say that real life has been sucking all of my available free moments as of late, and any down-time at work has been non-existent.  I've had little LJ time to even read and catch up with stuff on my flist, let alone update my own - thus the slacking. And it pisses me off, because fandom crap makes me happy.

Anyway, I have been trying to keep up with my self-imposed TV commenting, but needed to play catch-up with that, too, for the last few weeks. I'm almost all they way there, though - only behind on thoughts for last week's Bones and Lost, and the frak-tastic season finale of Battlestar Galactica. So... I wanted to go ahead and list a bunch of links on shows that have aired since my last entry.  As usual, all the fake cuts lead to comments posted at Wicked-Insanity, and I'll try to keep these as chronological-by-airing as possible.

Veronica Mars: 3.15 - "Papa's Cabin"

Lost: 3.10 - "Tricia Tanaka is Dead"

Battlestar Galactica: 3.17 - "Maelstrom"

Heroes: 1.18 - "Parasite"

Lost: 3.11 - "Enter 77"

Battlestar Galactica: 3.18 - "The Son Also Rises"

Bones: 2.15 - "Bodies in the Book"

Lost: 3.12 - "Par Avion"

Smallville: 6.16 - "Promise"

Supernatural: 2.16 - "Roadkill"

Battlestar Galactica: 3.19 - "Crossroads" (pt.1)

Bones: 2.16 - "The Boneless Bride in the River"

Lost: 3.13 - "The Man from Tallahassee"

Smallville: 6.17 - "Combat"

Supernatural: 2.17 - "Heart"

I won't even get into the whole Veronica Mars 'will-they or won't-they' fiasco. The CW is running a piss-poor business model of a network, both financially - and especially creatively, if the show gets cut off similar to the shit pulled on Everwood last season.  Thoughts of the show not being around anymore at all make my heart hurt, when mind-numbing garbage like the Pussycat Dolls gets higher ratings, so I won't elaborate on anything more until "official" word of its future is announced in May.

I feel like there's a whole lot more random crap I should just put here since it's been so long, but I'm tired and it's Sunday night, which means more work tomorrow.  And I need to go watch my DVR-ed Dresden Files

Kristen Bell is awesome.

Just so you know, I totally accused Cindy of making you up. I was all "Suuuuuure you have this friend who has an LJ who you're coming to see next month. Yeah, I believe you". :P

Also - Dresden Files squee. Note to self: Must find books - stat.

I honestly don't blame you for being wary, since I was MIA for so long. But yes - she is coming to visit 30 days from now, for the third time - so she's not fibbing.

And I've heard the Dresden books are worth a read. They'll make it to my list... eventually. Love that icon, btw.

Eh, I know how work can be. I used to have a job that I literally called the gang in late January and said "Love ya, see you at the end of March" because we were just that busy.

Cin talked my ear off about her undying devotion to Mall at Mellenia and then we had a long and I am not sure helpful discussion of where I am relative to the rest of Orlando. I tried to boil it down to "Let's put it this way - I am about 40 minutes north of Universal and all that, but only 25 minutes from Daytona Beach". She seems ready for it to be May already. She has all but demanded that I will trek into town and at least say hi while she's here - which is fine by me.

Oh, I am SO ready for it to be May already, too. Not only for the fun visiting, but for the work-break, too.

And you are more than welcome to drop by my place or meet us all somewhere if you get a chance when Cindy and Ben are here. It would be great to all meet and hang out. I know Cindy's been counting the days for a bit now...

Thanks! We will definitely have to see how our schedules mesh. I'd be glad to meet up or tag along with you guys.
