How's your day? Someone tried to steal Stewart's phone as he was coming home from school. Stewart decked him.

In other news I've decided to try that Couch to 5K thing, so I bought new trainers today and had a nice bike ride. It'll be Friday before I try it, as I'm working tomorrow and thursday, we're going to Glasgow.

Mother isn't happy with me, as I told her that my stuff was more important than her stuff and I would get to it when I was finished my stuff. Her laptop appears to be on the fritz and apparently I'm useless because I can't magically fix it over the phone nor come in early tomorrow to call the makers and talk to them about it. I have no idea why she can't do it herself. I'm not a magical PC guru, I just know more than the average user.

I think we need - or I need - a Bo/Dyson vid to this

And this really caught my eye as well

correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this sweeps month? why are all the network shows going off this month, instead of running through it?

Hey all my shows are safe this season. What are the odd on that?

I am most annoyed that I have to wait another two weeks for SPN when all my other shows are back.

Looks like I'll be adding Nikita to my dance card, along with Hellcats. It's starting to look like all CW, all the time

Just to remind us of the original

Just saw Southland for the first time. Do the characters ever stop being stereotypes and bcome peoplr?

It's funny. I wasn't really feeling any slash pairings until Damon killed Alaric. Isn't it grand when loves never having to say you're sorry? Damon/Alaric ship manifesto.

I need icons

When's SPN back?

Best recap of 3x1 True Blood so far (spoilers)

The worst thing about visiting the parents is she makes me watch EastEnders.

I hate EE. It's like some horrible fantasy land where all the men are lumbering oafs and all the women are moronic, whining harpies. On other soaps they'd be fascinating, rounded people and they'd have actual plots and things to do, instead of standing screeching at each other in the street because they've both got an inexplicable raging hard-on for a baboon's arse.

I don't get the Syed story. Why would two smashing lovely people like Almira and Christian go weak at the knees for that shelfish, snivilling five day old lettuce? They could both do so much better.

They should run off together and have a totally platonic marriage and raise Almira's baby. Christian would totally make a brilliant Dad. And it would have a fabulous nursery.

Stewart is eating rocket lettuce. It's highly entertaining.

I can't say i didn't see it coming, but it's still a shame to see it go. Part of me thinks they moved it and revamped it to give them an excuse to get shut of it. I loved The Bill before the revamp and cannot understand why they tried to turn it into L&O:UK. ITV already has one of those (and it's shit)

I'll miss The Bill for the great programme it was.

On to happier things. Would the cast of an American Soap ever turn up on Jerry Springer, in character?

to celebrate 1000 eps of Jeremy Kyle, David, Tina and Nick from Coronation Street went on as their characters.

*sigh* woke up again at stupid o'clock to find it was a blizzard outside. No school for Stewart, then.

Cleaned the bathroom (1 1/2) so now we're all clean and hygenic and I'm on top of all the house work - barring the dishes in the sink.

Watched Alice. Syfy made this? but it's really good! Syfy don't make good stuff! Syfy make Shark Attack in Venice! Meglodon 3! It's all subversive and meta-y and stuff.

I love Hatter/Alice. (anyone think The Queen and her husband started off like Hatter and Alice? And got lost along the way?)

Then I did 10k on the exercise bike and I've knocked three minutes off the last time I was on (47.something to 43.something) I was going to do my weights, but I forgot to move them through beforehand.

Now I bring romance author wank because, well I can and it's funny. The lulziest bit is when the author makes out that the reviewer is JELUS of her (vanity)published status and that's why the shitty review.

I love watching adults behave like they're five.

I hope he falls asleep soon. I'm tired and dying for my bed.

I hate cleaning something after a while. I cleaned the living room today - I was meant to be doing the bathroom as well, but a bad night's sleepa and the stress of getting Stewart out to school in the morning saw to that. I spent an hour putting stuff back in its place before I could clean the living room. It was so dusty! Get the bathroom on Thursday, when the mountain of washing has cleared a bit. SPring must be round the corner, the washing is drying faster.

I like clearing things up. I'm not a domestic goddess, but it's good for the soul to have a clean house. more room for working out or kids playing, you don't cripple yourself by standing on lego. It's also functional fitness.

I hate the mess left though. I've got a ton of crap waiting to go out in the recycling or to take to the charity shop or books to the library. I can't get on with the kitchen until then.

Tried to watch Being Human. What is it about that programme that it all goes to shit come episode six? Intro'd Mother to Spartacus:Blood and Tits. She's agreed that she must watch it forthwith.

Bit jealous of Gigglingkat. All her Grimms posts are making me wish i could get my ass writing again. Instead of Writing Gods, I got Lares.

Hold still. I missed a bit. *cleans you*


Went the gym, workout was hard, cycled in and cycled back 8 miles. Very annoyed they don't have a functional fitness thingy on the "What I'm doing outside the gym".

Not sure what I think about Underbelly. The narration is annoying. Sounds like John Michie. Spent more time going "That was Blake in H&A! Is that Spartacus? I'm sure that's Spartacus. I know her face an all."

In other news, I have a teenager. *head desk*
Maggie Q? Asian? Fuck, that's funny.

She looks about as Asian as I do. (Wedding Pics tag shows you me)

I want more diverse ethnic casting in leading roles on US TV, but I want people who actually look Indian, Chinese, Indonesian, whatever.

Because Hollywood only cares about what your heritage is insomuch as it looks good on a publicity sheet. It's your face that's the most important thing. If you don't actually look like whatever race you're supposed to - and Q doesn't - what good does that do "diverse casting"?

I'm sick of seeing Latino actors playing "Second Drug Dealer on the Left." look at Benito Martinez. Before playing David Aceveda on The Shield, that was all he played. Not Lawyers on one of the L&Os or a Doctor on a long running TV series. The only non-white or black actors I can think of in such roles are Archie Kao (CSI) or Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy)or Ming-na Wen (ER). Are we about to see Diechan Lachman leading her own series anytime soon? I doubt it, even though Dollhouse showcased her and Enver Thingy as much as it showcased that Eliza Dushku can't act outside a very narrow range. (Give Nikita to Diechan! She would rock that shit and she actually looks Tibetan!)

That's Asian actors and the only few I can think of. Apart from Dexter or Oz, I can't think of any Latino mainstream actors who aren't playing drug dealers. maybe the Mexican in The Closer, but that's not a main role.

I want to see more people from different races heading up my TV, not ones who pass for it when it suits them.

meme time!

Oh and I went to the gym yesterday. There was a really hot guy in the free weights bit and OMG he looked like Jason Momoa. See this is why I'm in a gym - hot guys and hot guys providing an enhanced workout (I did the same wieghts 8 times. I forgot what I was doing)

I like this meme, found chewing on bloody corpses in gigglingkat's journal.

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" "please, may I have one?" or something like that and I'll assign you the basis of some tv show idea (science fiction, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios, and show synposis that you want
4. Post to your own journal

ETA Kat gave me this

ob⋅ses⋅sion  [uhb-sesh-uhn] –noun
1. the domination of one's thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc.
2. the idea, image, desire, feeling, etc., itself.
3. the state of being obsessed.
4. the act of obsessing.

went gym yesterday. Still can't do shoulder press. Went over to free wieghts area and finished there later. Today walked 10k and went for a smear. I went for a pelvc once and the nurse found an earring up there.

Never quite figured that one out.

Where the hell did she put her cigarette?

This has me excited. Hopefully it'll be so bad it's good (Like SPARTACUS: BLOOD & TITS!!!) or it'll shock us all by being a thoughtful, nuanced, reflective drama on the CW. Sorry, I couldn't type that with a straight face

Here's a thought - isn't Kripke only signed to SPN for this last year? Isn't it getting handed over to someone else for S6? Doesn't a development deal mean he'll actually have to come up with new dramas? This is being done by McG and Wonderland Productions, so could this be be Kripke's next project?

Naturally, though, this new series is the DOOM OF US ALL.

See that annoys me. There's room for all of the reboots and remakes and rip-offs. You can like them both. You can hate them both. You can love one or the other.

How on Earth does a remake sully the original? It's not like it's going to jump off the TV and delete your downloads and hide your DVDs under the patio. If it's that bad, I still got the originals and can say, "Row 8, Plot 30 for you!"

It could be awesome. In which case, I get two fantastic series to fangirl. It's not Timecop. They won't cancel each other out if they occupy the same space.
