The Spam Reports

It saddens me to state that all my spam is now split into two distinct and highly uninteresting groups--the Wild Teens/Disgusting Sluts/Super Come series and the Stock Options series. The halycon days of yore, when my inbox was filled with such delights as Cherry Frat Boys Take It Up the Ass are apparently, done and gone. Paris Hilton and Britney Spears are no longer offered on bootleg tape. No promises of drugs in at least three days, no exciting prospects of black market Valium or Vicadin. Only stock options and wild teens.

This is so depressing I could just cry.

My TV listings

I keep thinking I don't watch much TV. That is a dirty lie. I *record* a lot of TV and watch it in bulk, ffing through commercials, but that doens't acutally lower the amount I watch.

1.) House
2.) Smallville
3.) Fullmetal Alchemist
4.) Battlestar Galactica
5.) Teen Titans
8.) CSI
9.) Random Law and Orders

Okay, and thanks to fox1013 and svmadelyn, I am dreaming of Veronica Mars. I have never seen an ep. I haven't read a recap. But the entire cast showed up for a vague musical number the other night, and the entire dream, I was thinking, I love this show! Why haven't I watched it before?

Huose, though, is fascinating me, in the way that CSI can't quite. I enjoy CSI for Grissom and for basically the mystery, but it's a kind of bland, take it or leave it. I take because it's there, and it is intersting, but no emotional involvement.

House, though. Hmm.



I honestly think that House makes me love him not because there's a marshmellowy center somewhere there, but because he's such an ass. I mean, leave the woobie effect aside. I'm turned on by brilliance, and the man is brilliant, and frankly, there really isn't much hotter than someone *that* fucking smart and that arrogant being utterly fine with being wrong half the time. He makes it seem like it was the plan all along. Even when he screws up. And really makes you not able to every say "haha you were wrong!". Well, you can, but you feel stupid doing it.

My favorite part is, he's utterly aware of it. Foreman sometimes feels like he has no idea he's being an arrogant jerk, whereas House got over pretensions of being nice a hell of a long time ago. And watching them together is just--the happy place.

Question at this late date: Wilson? He's teh guy that was the husband of Newhart's daughter in Newhart, right? The hotel in Vermont (?)? Larry, Darryl, and my other brother Darryl? Ring any bells?

Yeah, just curious.



One week of work, then me and Child are Spring Breaking for nine glorious days. Much unhealthy food, lounging in pajamas, unlimited television, and Gamecube/Playstation 2 overload. It is going to be *so cool*.

We'll have you yet, my pretty.

*fiendish smile*

What she said.

Exactly.

Except for the part where I'm slightly less fiendish, and slightly more cute.

Figure. Out. How. To. Work. Your. DVD. Burner.

...go with less cute, more hands-on, I think. *nods*

My dad is supposed to help me install it this week, and if not, I shall burn it to CD anyway.

And, you know, I've heard it's best to not SCARE people before we WOO THEM with good television.

...so long as it gets *done*.

And how on earth are you scaring Jenn!? Stop that! Stop that now.

*narrows eyes*

Robert Sean Leonard (Wilson) is not Peter Scolari (whose character, Michael, was married to Bob Loudon's employee, Stephanie, on "Newhart). RSL was in the Kenneth Branagh "Much Ado About Nothing", as well as "Dead Poet's Society".

Does this help a little?

Can I jump on the bandwagon and tell you that you need to watch Veronica Mars? ;)

And right now I am trying to picture Logan singing... and wondering what he would sing. And now I am going to walk away with that thought, thank you. ;)

Man, Darryl and my other brother Darryl will never cease to make me laugh so long as I shall live.

And as for House, you nailed it in one. Although I do feel the need to point out that they ever get around to his goey, marshmallowy center, I will be very disappointed. I like him in large part because he's an unapologetic jerk and I hope they let him stay that way.

I'd like to state again, for the record, that you, Jenn, are getting into BSG.

Question is, are you feeling at all ficish about it yet?

*blinks up at you w/ doe eyes, hopefully*

Just have a little of the fancrack, please, because if you write a quarter as much cool BSG fic as you have SV fic, I'll be a very very happy woman.

Your fan,
Kate :)

I, too, miss the days of gay porn spam. Now, I just get teen girl spam and mortage/home loan spam and viagra/cialis spam and super cheap software spam and “free” electronics (ipods, laptops, etc) with product testing spam. I want the gay porn back damn it!

Good to know I’m not the only one that does this. I haven’t seen any TV in the past few weeks but I think next week will be a good time for me ta catch up. Yep, next week because this week, I am finally watching Firefly episodes.

House is just sort of like "Hi! I'll be your brilliant jerk for the day!"

I guess he wears his ass on his sleeve.

Dude, you are the coolest mom ever! ;)

I've been getting scads and scads of spam along the lines of "Free laptop/iPod/SW DVDs/other expensive geeky item!" But all to my Yahoo account, the one I only use for LJ stuff.

And I'm down to a handful of shows I make a regular habit of catching, myself -- Lost and ER being the two main ones, really, though sometimes Mad TV if I'm home Saturday night at that time and not reading, or The Daily Show if I can catch it. Most of my TV time is parking in front of the TV with my knitting for a few hours and just seeing what's on cable and never getting around to watching the stack of DVDs that are waiting for me.

Veronica Mars should be declared illegal, because after one episode you're hooked for life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Official Veronica Mars CrackMonkey Speaking*

And Logan reminds me so much of a young Lex it's scary. Him and Eli (me no likey name Weevil) have smokin hot chemistry too.

The Show is by Rob Thomas who did Cupid, and the writing is top notch. Couch Baron has given it a straight A curve so far on his reviews. Continuity, character growth, story arcs, allusions and metaphors and deep shit abound, all of the people on board can fucking act, and everyone is flawed and gets called on their shit. Every episode builds on the last. Dialogue to kill for. Mysteries keep you guessing. No one is two-dimensional unless they are meant to be. They've got sometimes Mac from Napeolon Dynamite which is one of the coolest movies ever. She can act and has purpose on the show too. No screentime is ever, ever wasted or used repetitively.

And I need to take a breather now. But you get the point.

Please watch. This show needs more people desperately to keep it on air. You know it's good if I'm begging and counting down the minutes to watch UPN!!!!!!!!!

Oh my goodness, you must watch Veronica Mars. My whole family, who are all Buffy fans as well, watch it with me. (::cough::)

Um. But the point is, lack of the supernatural aside, Veronica Mars has a certain BtVS tinge to it. It's all about girl power and being very very clever at people (yes, you can be clever at people. It's an act of aggression). And, though I actually haven't thought about it til now, there is plenty of slash potential.

... I wonder if there's any decent Veronica Mars fanfiction? ...

Anyway. UPN Tuesday nights. I think 9:00 EST, but I'm not sure -- I'm a slave to TiVo. But really. Try it out.

Really, that's it exactly for me, too. That moment where Foreman apologizes to House because House heard him. He so clearly has no idea what the problem with that is...
