Woke up at 8. Wanted to go to sleep at 10. Instead I did what I felt up to doing, which was chewing through some of my TiVo'd shows. Watched Invasion
which had just barely enough going on to keep me from fast forwarding through it. I need a little more story here, guys. Watched Over There
. No clue if it's accurate. But it certainly is effective story telling, and it takes you some place you'd probably not want to go personally. Definitely watching this one. Watched The Grid
. It's, y'know, fine. Too bad the terrorists are so much more compelling than the heros. Also, who are the core cast? I'm a little lost. I'm assuming Dylan McDermott and Julianne Margulies, but you wouldn't know it from the episode. And, of course, watched Rescue Me
Had to go to sleep at 1. Just couldn't stay conscious. Lisa put me to bet with an ice pack on my shoulder. Realized it was not the pain medication. I really am sick... that explains the headaches, too...
I hope the next big pandemic doesn't come my way, I seem to have a barely functioning immune system...
UPDATE: I am sick, but the headaches turn out to be caffeine withdrawal. One of the perils of being a coffee-addicted freelancer is that sometmes you accidentally put decaf in the coffee maker. That can blow your whole day if it's not caught. Sleepiness followed by headaches. Now the headache's going away, but drinking coffee at 8:30 at night will have a cost, too...
You poor thing! It sounds like your week is going as well as mine.
I'm having a pretty rough time dealing with a recent tragedy (y'know...Mal's death) but I'm really excited about all the new and returning shows (Lost, Invasion, Surface, DH, Numbers, Threshold, Medium, Supernatural) and am eagerly absorbing as much as I can before I finally slip into unconsciousness at about 3am pretty much every day this week. I need the diversion to keep me from going off the deep end.
Hope you feel better soon, sweetie. Take care of yourself, eh?
I love "Over there". While I've never been in Iraq (for any reason) I have been in the Army and they have it pretty much nailed. However, the whole "You went AWOL, but we'll just ignore it." is really stretching the limits of artistic license.
I hope you feel better soon!
After watching Threshold....Invasion seemed kind of empty and dull.
