It's over, guys! Console me, for I have finally finished The Sentinel.  I watched the last episode last night, then spent a half hour on the phone with my dad, getting grief counseling.  *g*  Seriously, I know it's been off the air for ten years now, but it doesn't really feel that way to me, ya know?

In other news, I smell like a christmas tree and my hands are still sticky after washing them three times.  Yes, that's right, I've been doing yardwork.

*smooches to all*

It's nice to be home. :) I've been at my dad's for the past few days, and there was an extra day thrown in for him, so I've been all kerfluffled.  I'm good now, though. *g*

Joy! I received the sentinel dvd's from [ profile] starwatcher307 !  Woohoo!  I shall snuggle in and enjoy and squee over those that I haven't seen yet.  But really, I just have to say--*facepalm headdesk pshaaaw* Because after literally *weeks* of not hearing from the woman who sends me the eps online, I just checked my e-mail and found two eps sitting there waiting for me.  Today.  The very day I get them on DVD.  I mean, really.  But Joy! all around anyway, I guess the universe has just aligned for me to watch TS. :D

And yes, I *should* be working on my Othello essay that's due tomorrow.  I know this.  But really? *holds hands in measury-pose* Othello essay.  Unseen Sentinel eps.  Which would you choose?  Sleep's overrated anyway.

Oh, and my dad's ultra-conservative friend stopped over today.  Despite the residual tingles-of-righteousness that I'm always left with after talking with him, I actually really enjoy it when he visits.  I get to mildly debate things such as politics and global warming and how liberalism will be the downfall of the earth with him, and he never seems to mind when I break out into giggles at what he says sometimes.  He's quite respectful of my beliefs.  He thinks they're dead wrong, of course, and he does his fair share of head-shaking and laughing at me, but he doesn't really try to push his beliefs on me.  Yay!

Well, I guess I was just feeling a bit chatty, seeing as I've been away from the Internetz since *gasp* Sunday! O_O  Holy crap, man, that's a long time!

And WOW to the P-L and Sentinalia discussions that I missed! (I lurk only on these lists.)  But I did my fair share of fist-pumping and "go you!"-ing as I read, and thanks to those who were pro-non-biasedness based on age!  ILU!! ♥

Okay, that's it for now, I swear. *g*

I love that I can read so many great stories, and think, "*That's* how it would be." with way more than one of them.

I love that I've met so many lovely, gracious, generous people, and that just through our shared love of this show and these characters, I've gotten the chance to know and form relationships with them.

I love that despite all of our differences, we can usually get over them, and have rational discussions, and broaden our horizons.

And I love that I can wax poetic about all of this, and no one will bat an eye, because it's all been said and thought before.

Hmmmm.  Seems I'm getting mushy.

I just spent a whole crapload of time indulging my craving for first time fics by transferring waaaay too many of them to my flashdrive, so that I can read them on my internetless laptop.  While splashing around in them will be oh-so-fun, I'm *pretty* sure that I will eventually OD.

Oh, well.  What a way to go, right?

*smooches to all*

P.S.: Thanks to everyone who's given me such lovely feedback on Convergence at Last. You are all mucho wonderfifful!

I'm almost finished with my most recent J/B story, and I'm having such a good time with it! (especially now that the finish line is drawing near!)

I will post an Official Request (*g* ) for a beta as soon as it is complete, with details and title and all such things.

I'm actually pretty proud of this one; it makes me think that my writing is finally improving. :)

*smooches to all*
It's a little late for this, but my lack of internet holds me back. :)



I am happy in my squeedom.

Mini-squee of Castle v. The Sentinel just because )

I figure I might as well talk about it, since (I'm guessing) lots of people will be doing the same soon, too.

On the Yahoo group Sentinalia (and others, for all I know) people have been complaining  talking about the websites category being removed.  I'm just an innocent little newbie here, so I don't have all that much to say, but it seems to me that people are making this into a bigger deal than it should be.  Yes, I understand that people want to be included in the awards, and that for some, the only way is through their websites.  However, in my lowly opinion, these awards should be a warm-fuzzy-happy way to show your appreciation for the fandom and its wonderful contributors.  They  shouldn't be about expecting to win, or wanting to win yourself.  If you *do* win, enjoy it, because it's well-deserved, but remember that this should all be about having fun, not about a competition.

*falls off soapbox*

On a lighter note, I am LOVING these awards (it's my first year participating in them), and am happily squeeing as I nominate my faves.

What do you all think?

After the TS episode chat, during which we discussed procrastination, and [ profile] spacepixell waved her sharp pointy pokey stick at all the slow-mo authors there, I decided to take a look at my fics.  I'm so glad I did, because I found out something; I really, really like some of them!

So now I'm back in writing mode (yay!) and feel Good.

That's all, nothing important (as if it ever is....)

*smooches to all*

P.S.: Thanx, Space!  Your Pointy Stick of Terror is amazing!

The other day when reading the warnings on a fic, knowing that it was angsty, I scanned to find out if it had a happy ending. Finding no indication either way, I thought to scroll to the bottom and read the end. Gasp! When did I become *that* person? Once, I disdained those who read the end first, or at least strongly identified myself as *not* one of them. No offense intended to anyone who does read the end first, by the way.

I always just enjoyed the story, *for* the story, whether or not the end was happy. Now, I find that I have become a wimp.

From now on, I am re-dedicating myself to reading good stories, happy or not. And I will firmly squish that part of me (I suspect that this is where my muse comes from) that cringes at the hurt-with-little-comfort stories, the dark!fics, the death!fics, the *shudder*-- breakup stories.

Long live good reading!

Down with the tyranny of sugary sweetness!

*smooches to all*

This was unexpected: RB in Nip/Tuck preview.

enjoy, if you haven't seen it (and the ep) already!

I'm nearing the end of the third season of The Sentinel.  I ♥ this show and its slashiness....really, there are points when I think, "It just doesn't GET any gayer than that!!" 

Ignore the insane fangirl.

*smooches to all*
I am officially in love with Megan Conner.  She is badass.  That is all. *bg*

I got a plot bunny, I got a plot bunny! *dances plot bunny dance*  Hee!  Sooo happy!  :)  I don't usually post about every little bunny that visits me, but this one is so special!  *pets cute bunny adoringly*  Yay!

Ohhh, it's so...just so....*makes strange noise* there's just no words for how happy this little bunny just made me.  I thought all the bunnies had run away, but it turns out I just had a bunny-force-field up, and as soon as I let it down, this delightful fellow hopped up!

He's dark, and angsty, and about a theme that I've been wanting to see more of.  I just never thought it would come from me!  My muse must be depressed.  I am glad.  I wonder who kicked a puppy in front of her.  Whoever you were, thank you!  I think I'll name this bunny Bob.

Happy squees to all!


...........just, just go ahead and ignore me.  Had to ramble a bit on one of my biggest squees EVER.  The end of Dead Certain in the third season of The Sentinel....just wondering, have there been any confirmed deaths by squee?  'Cause I think I came pretty close there.

Thanks for listening to my crazed, psychotic mumblings happy squees.  :D
Serious internet withdrawal is a bitch.  But, unfortunately, it is an unhealthy part of my life that occurs regularly, as my father's house does not have the Internet.  Sigh. 

However, I am now home, comfortably mired in my Livejournal, fanfics, and downloaded episodes of the Sentinel. 

Right now, I'm watching Storm Warning.  Four minutes in, and they're *so* together that it makes for squee!pants.  Life is good.

The End

P.S.-- inane ramblings are fun.

P.P.S.-- I am currently in a state of mild euphoria, so I am no longer pulling my hair out over my poor Sentinel Thursday story that went astray.  I swear, it wasn't supposed to happen, but (UGH) my freakin' muse is sooo disgustingly sappy that sometimes I just want to kick a puppy in front of her.  That'd teach her.
Okay, I just read another story that has Jim as the poster boy for 'gay America'.  What has me cracking up is that just an hour ago, I read one that calls him the poster boy for straight America.

So, question #1:  Which do you think is more accurate to call Jim a poster boy of, gay, or straight America?

Question #2:  Does it bug you when a theme or a phrase like this is re-used in fanfiction?  Personally, I love to see everybody's take on different things.

Question #3: What other repeated things like this have you noticed (I can think of a few), and do they annoy you, or do you like it?
Whew! Almost three hours of TS, slashiness, and FUN!  I had a ball, and met some lovely people!  For those of you who were there, I look forward to talking to you next week!
