New TV season!!!!

Community - I haven't seen last night's episode, but I did love the pilot. What can I say? I love Joel McHale.

Modern Family - Funniest new series. I don't even know how many times I laughed at this. I really need to see it again cause I know I missed some jokes.

Cougar Town - I wasn't gonna watch this one, but I decided to go ahead and round out the hour with ABC and I must say I was surprised. I do enjoy Courtney Cox so I imagine that helped, but Busy Phillipps and the kid playing Cox's son were the best parts.

Flash Forward - Hello sexytimes. The entire pilot was like sexy sexytimes. Joseph Fiennes and John Cho walking around all srs faced and injured and then the epic Jack Davenport tease! Curse you, ABC!

House - I thought the premiere was pretty darn good. Hugh Laurie did an awesome job and had a massive =D on my face during Wilson's scene. Didn't care much for the "romance" subplot. The spoilers for upcoming episodes have me more excited though. (So much Wilson goodness coming.) Though I must say I'm still over the whole Huddy thing and I honestly remain unaffected by the announcement that Jennifer Morrison is leaving. (There will be hell to pay if RSL ever decides to leave though.)

Well I made it through my first full week of work. It went well. I was a bit worn out by Friday, but part of that is work, being a full time student/worker (I was part time last year), dealing with BPA stuff, and starting medical coding.

I'm still happy that all the teachers on our end of the building like me. =)

I also found out Thursday that I'm Student of the Month for October. =)

In other news... saw Wolverine last night. Oh so many things to make me rage (what the hell was the point in hyping up the cast when they all lasted about 10 minutes?) And don't even get me started on Deadpool... or even Emma Frost for that matter (and I don't even care for Emma.) Naked Hugh Jackman made up for a lot though. A lot.

Spent the other night watching clips from Beatles: Rock Band and holy wow that is one pretty game. The presentation is just gorgeous. I think my favorite that I saw is Hello Goodbye because they put in the silly dancing. Oh the silly dancing...

I just realized I didn't talk about the VMAs and I feel I should at least mention that I had a giant, goofy smile on my through Muse's entire performance. I thought it was awesome and I love that they kept going and played for the people who were at their venue. (Though MTV teasing Starlight was a bitch move.)

I'm also stupidly excited for the Emmys tonight. I blame Neil Patrick Harris. I hope he knocks it out of the park. (I also want to see Hugh Laurie get some love tonight...)

And speaking of Hugh Laurie... House season premiere is tomorrow night. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the asylum, but I really only care about what's gonna happen after that. I sense massive amounts of Wilson goodness coming my way soon and that always, always makes me happy.

So someone posted to [livejournal.com profile] ontd_startrek about seeing the film with their dad and both of them tearing up and it really got me thinking and bummed me out a bit.

I am incredibly sad that I cannot see this movie with my mom. And that I can't see anything with her anymore. I can't geek out with her anymore.

I also realized that she had a hand in an insane amount of my fandoms.

She introduced me to pretty much every science fiction/fantasy series/movie I've ever loved. Let's just look at the ones I can remember: Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess... I know there's more. I just can't think of them!

I started rewatching season three of Heroes and while it's better than season two, I'm not enjoying it nearly as much and I've finally figured out the reason. I'm not watching it with her. We watched Heroes together and came up with our theories and tried to figure everything out and snark on Claire and Peter and perv a little over Nathan. Heck that was all the fun of Lost too. Trying to figure out everything together.

Thinking of that reminds me of a summer where we had a shitload of fun with a mystery. There was a soap opera on NBC awhile back called Passions and one summer they had a big overarching mystery plot. I remember both of us trying to figure out who did it. We even had a freaking chart hanging on the wall to mark out suspects. I don't remember who did it, but I remember us debating on suspects.

I've noticed that series like CSI has lost it's spark with me as well... I think part of that is that I've lost the fun it used to have fingering who did it and making fun of all the suspects.

I think she also played a large part in my love of slash (and even if she didn't I'm gonna blame her.) We always had the computer in the living room. I remember her watching Queer as Folk on TV as it was premiering and being really weirded out. I mean what the hell this is my mom watching what is kinda gay porn on TV in the same room with me. That lasted for about a season and then I just gave up and started watching it with her. (She also totally got me into Torchwood by being all "Oh yeah Jack is a little bisexual." I remember her actually cheering when Jack and Ianto kissed for the first time. Geez fangirl much, mom?)

This all also makes me wonder if the reason I latched onto House so hard is because it was something that we didn't share. We never watched House together. Never even thought about watching it. I didn't see my first episode till after I was living with my aunt. I also wonder if it's coincidence that the very first episode of House I ever saw was "Who's Your Daddy?" which had a PotW with her name, Leona.

TL;DR Version: I really miss watching things with my mom. Geeking out over TV and movies with her were really some of my best times.

From Is It Just Me? TV Guide's May 13-31, 2009 issue.

Did House have a ridiculously zippy detox?
One sweaty night on the couch and a little ginger tea: That's all it took for House to kick the Vicodin habit. It never looks that easy on Celebrity Rehab. So I called up Dr. Drew Pinksy. And let me tell you, VH1's guru was not amused. "I'm concerned that this show might be giving a message that opiate withdrawal is a snap," he says. "It takes five to seven days. Days. There is something called rapid opiate detox that can be done in a day. But that's done in an operating room under general anesthesia and not on a couch. And even then, [the patient's] still sick for a few days afterwards." Got it. But there's an even bigger issue House's peers will have to be worried about--besides the fact that they could all be sued for knowingly allowing an addicted doctor to practice medicine. Pinksy says newly detoxed individuals are often extremely irritable and agitated for weeks after kicking the opiate. So Dr. McCranky could get crankier? "It comes with the territory," he says. Geez, now I'm scared


Ignoring the fact that the season finale showed us why that happened... it's not like the whole "taking days to get through and being crankier than usual" thing didn't happen the last two times we went through this...

House Season Six
House/Wilson Finally Happens


That was so a "I'll wait for you!" ending. Though I felt they should have hugged.
queendork56: (Default)
So it's been a while since I did a proper update so I'm gonna try and hit the high points...

School: Finally started using MediSoft in Medical Office Procedures. It's not as bad as I was expecting, but I still haven't hit the simulations yet so that could change. Competency testing for us is this coming Wednesday. Class trip to the OKC Omniplex/science museum is on April 28th. I also finally enrolled for next year and hopefully I'll get to be a full time student this time.

Movies: Finally saw Twilight... Peter Facinelli as a blonde is just so wrong. I find it kind of funny that I saw two movies in less than a week where the best part involved a Muse song. Also I will not lie... I saw The Day the Earth Stood Still for Jon Hamm and Jon Hamm only. I honestly couldn't tell you much that happened when he was on screen. The scruff was super hot.

Books: I bought the next three Sookie Stackhouse books (Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead, and Dead to the World). I'm almost finished with the second Night Angel book. So good. I love a series where I can actually end up liking characters I once despised. Vi has gone from "snoozefest" to "how wonderfully bitchy". Also I must stop myself from shipping Kylar and Vi since I know he won't end up with her. I also bought Confessions of a Shopaholic couple of weeks ago.

Television: Stupid Kal Penn liking stupid politics. This season of House has been so... all over the place. There's only a handful of episodes left and while I'm really not looking forward to yet another "omg Cameron is like totally in love with House!" thing or a "House could have been super happy with [insert female character here], but he pushed her away because he's a miserable wreck" thing we all know he can only be happy with Wilson, I am interested in seeing what they do for the finale. (Hopefully there will be Wilson goodness.)

I also gutted and restuffed my section of our Netflix with all the TV I've been putting off watching. I'm working through Jeeves and Wooster right now (I finished season one. I'm once again totally smitten with both Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry.) and then it's on to Mad Men and Supernatural.

Video Games Persona: I'm in October with Persona 3. It is such fucking bullshit that you only get the best character for a month. I'll miss his badassness and the completely awesome way he used his Evoker. I still don't know how I'm going to manage The Answer side of P3 since it's equivalent to the hard version of The Journey. I expected epic fail from me though.

Manga: I'm still not caught up on Fullmetal Alchemist or One Piece. I am caught up on Reborn! though and I must say I'm glad the girls are getting their say. Though Haru is still a million times better than Kyoko. I'm also current with xxxHOLiC (I only care again because Doumeki and Watanuki are staying with each other now) and Tsubasa (What the fuck has happened to this series? Just tell me if Kurogane and Fai go off to be gay ever after so I can stop caring about this headache inducing clusterfuck.)

So first I read this week's Ask Ausiello on EW.com expecting to see the usual Forteen/Huddy spoilers, but instead I find awesome Wilson spoilers much to my shock. The next episode is supposed to be a Wilsontastic episode of House. So I'm all "YES!" then I remember that House isn't on for two weeks because of some stupid 24 junk so that means the episode won't air till March 9th... which is the day I leave for competition. Dammit. At lest USA shows repeats the following week.

And now... [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily has been nuked. WTF LIVEJOURNAL WHERE WILL I GET MY AWESOME NOW?

edit: s_d mod post explaining some things including a link to the secondary community on InsaneJournal.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I got spontaneously hugged once, but I've never started it. I'm too afraid of being punched.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I teared up during Obama's speech yesterday. It's kind of nice to have a president I actually want to listen to when he speaks for a change.

And Now for some links of stuff I've enjoyed lately...

Clearly we learned nothing from the Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game (you know the one that was kinda Mortal Kombat-ish in terms of graphics and made you want to cry?) since we now have Dragonball: The Movie: The Game! Just what I always wanted!

PV for Gackt's new single, GHOST - I don't even know where to start... I do enjoy the song though. The b-side of the single was pretty good too.

This House parody made me smile.

Also I've been thinking about signing up for Twitter, but I'm not sure I want to...

Thank goodness it's not so freaking cold down here anymore. I was starting to worry we were gonna get another big ice storm like we got in 2000. But it finally blew through.

Christmas vacation is here (thank goodness) and I've finished my first section of work in school. All of my general office stuff is done. Whoo! Now I've moved on to basic medical terminology which is actually surprisingly easy with the video tapes we have to watch.

So far on the Christmas front I've got House season two (my obsession is finally complete! For now!), a Xbox 360 (holy shit I finally went next gen), and a green iPod Nano (which was what I really wanted.)

I haven't really been hit by the fact that mom isn't here for Christmas this year yet. I'm bracing for it though since I'll be home alone for most of the week. Every once in awhile I'll see something a store that I would have gotten her for Christmas.

I'm planning on making a giant post at some point about the past year. I think I might work on that this week. I'm also planning on catching up on Mad Men (Jon Hamm = delicious) and Dexter (he should not be that adorable) and maybe work on the earlier seasons of Supernatural.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital (House), duh.

Though I don't know if I'd want House to be my doctor. I think I'd rather have Wilson as my doctor. Less crying for me afterwards.

Sacred Heart (Scrubs though I guess that's not really a hospital drama) would also be an acceptable hospital. But only if we can all dance after I'm cured.

Also if this were 1994-1999ish I would have picked County General (ER).

So I'm gonna be moving soon. We're buying a house and we're supposed to be closing on Wednesday. This means I (finally) get my compy back! Whoo! It also means I'll be getting a new computer soon. Man it will be awesome to be able to run more than two things at a time. I'll also finally have time to actually play the gob of video games I've gotten this year. Poor FFXII... I haven't touched you in forever.

My sexy Gundams... I am missing them. D=

I finally dropped the big hint that I want all four seasons of House for Christmas (you know by pointing at them in the store and saying "I want that for Christmas." It was super subtle.) I also plan on getting myself Persona 4 for Christmas. Now I just need to figure out what to get everyone else...

I passed my first cerification at school on Wednesday (we didn't have school on Thursday or Friday.) Whoo! I also enrolled to get college credit through OSU Okmulgee. Double whoo!

I need a haircut. My bangs are seriously getting on my nerves. They're at the annoying length that's too short to stay in a pony tail, but too long to be anything by annoying. It's driving me crazy.

I'm also tempted to by a rename token and some extra userpics (even though I can't seem to fill up the 49 slots I already have.)

Oh I saw Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull the other night. It wasn't bad. Still can't be Last Crusade, but really nothing can. Some of it was pretty WTF, but I enjoyed the little moments.

And finally... OMG TERRA IS FINALLY CONFIRMED FOR DISSIDIA! WHOO! NOW IF ONLY SQUARE WOULD HURRY UP AND REMAKE FFVI FOR SOMETHING.

I haven't really had much to post about over the last few months, but now that there's actually quite a bit of stuff happening I feel it's time.


Living with someone new is hard. But I'm getting used to it. (Sharing a computer is hard when you're so used to having it all to yourself.) We're trying to get a house that's a couple of miles down the road now that we've gotten the payout from mom's life insurance. Hopefully it'll come through and by winter we'll be in a toasty new house (and I'll have my compy back.)


I was hoping to go to a tech school here last month, but I missed getting in. So I got kinda depressed and tried looking for a job which never panned out. But I got the news about 15 minutes ago that a spot opened and I can start Monday. Classes are in the afternoon from 12:15 to 3:15.


We did get bad news last night though. My (almost) uncle's sister had a stroke and is in the hospital in Indiana (she was on her way to Michigan.) They left last night at about nine to go and see her. They're planning on being back by Monday for work and everything.


I still miss Mom. I think about her at random times. It's been rough sometimes. I'm so used to her coming home at five and then us cooking together and then talking about random stuff. I wish I had spent more time that was just us.


Lighter side of things... I'm totally and completely addicted to House. Why did I not watch this sooner?! It's like someone crawled into my brain and made a show just for me. I also saw a bit of the last Supernatural season. It was pretty good. I wish it was in syndication somewhere so I could catch the earlier seasons. The new Heroes season looks awesome (though considering season two... just about anything looks awesome.) How I Met Your Mother is making me super happeh since my ship since the beginning is almost canon! Whoo!


I've been watching a lot of movies lately. The Dark Knight was awesome, but a part of it just didn't click with me. I felt Iron Man was the better superhero movie this summer (of course my longstanding love of RDJ could be clouding things there.) Speed Racer was kind of crap. It was worth it for Rain and Patrick from Coupling though.


Also I can't stop going to [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily. Like at all. It calls to me.
