I've been reading ElfQuest - again -  for about a week and a half, and I've already finished the main storyline (as far as I know; sometimes it's hard to keep up). There are lots of side stories I haven't read, but instead I just want to go back (pardon the pun) and read the early stuff again. It'll pretty much always be my favorite part.

And I have this insane urge to do something like DM of the Rings.


I got screened for TB for volunteering at the hospital, and while I do not have TB, I apparently have a reaction to that particular band-aid adhesive. For three days.

I'm still getting an A in chemistry, and the term is three-fifths over. So unless I bomb the next two tests, completely screw up the rest of the labs, and don't do the homework, I have a feeling I'll pass.

But I can't study today because I have the dumb.

I suppose it's all due to the "one heart, one mind" thing, but I found it interesting that all the different groups of elves speak the same language after thousands of years of isolation.

I just found out that, not only is the ElfQuest movie now slated for 2011, but THE ENTIRE ELFQUEST ADVENTURES ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE.
I didn't put off going to the Eugene library for the only copy of In All But Blood in the state for two and a half years for nothing.

I just about had a heart attack. A very happy heart attack.

I really have no color sense, so it took me a long time to come up with this scheme. I like it, and I'm thinking I'll keep it for fall and change it back to blue for the winter.

SPEAKING OF FALL: It is my favorite season of the year, and since I started school in Eugene I don't get to enjoy the full effects at home like I used to. There's no smell of apples, somebody keeps blowing the leaves off the sidewalks (and I really wish they wouldn't; leaf imprint patterns look so cool later), and I'm usually too busy to notice how fall it is anyway. And really, it's a city, albeit a small one, and seasons are different in cities. While I do like having everything I need within the range of a brisk walk or a bus trip, I don't think I'll live in a city again when I finish school (whenever that may be). I like the peace and the quiet and the fresh air of the country too much. I'll deal with the isolation and how creepy it gets at night. I've been doing that all my life.

It looks like I'm coming up on watching Doctor Who S2 for the second time in as many weeks (although probably this time with the commentary tracks on). Jessica really wants to see Atlantis when we get back and I'm only too happy to oblige. As soon as we finish that (as well as the final two episodes of Firefly) I'm getting her addicted to the Doctor.

Damned if it isn't the summer of forgotten fandoms.

Homicide. Damn. Mom and Dad rented the first season when Mom had the carpal tunnel in one hand fixed, and we sort of got hooked. Again. Nothing puts a show in perspective when you watch it all in chronological order. Even when you've already seen every episode. And dammit, I missed Tim Bayliss like hell. As far as shows go, this one is perhaps one of my top ten ever. Same with my favorite character. He's not perfect, but that's part of the greatness of the show: it was realistic. Not to mention guest stars everybody from Elijah Wood to Bruce Campbell. The one thing about him that pissed me off most was Tim's now-and-again shaving of his head, like another favorite I could name. *coughNICKYcough* (Both in fifth season! He's got Bayliss-pattern baldness.) Speaking of which, I could watch some CSI again one of these days.

ReBoot. You've already heard this story. And I fell out again as soon as I heard it was coming back. Ironic.

ElfQuest. It was going pretty well until the Homicide binge. It's on hold temporarily (I hope). It pisses me the hell off that the one I most want to read is so rare these days that there's only ONE COPY for sale on the internet, period. And it's over two hundred bucks. The only other one I could find at all is at Eugene Public Library, which means I'm getting a card when I go back this September.

If things keep going like this, I'll probably start watching X-Files again (also known as My Deadest Addiction Ever).

Fandoms that are shiny and new for me this year:

Buffy (In and out. Mostly out. I like most of the characters, but I'm having trouble staying focused for long. I always try to watch it when I'm hooked on something else.)
Twin Peaks (I hooked Erica too! Now I have somebody to talk about it with)
Doctor Who (is it Christmas yet??)
I also watched half a dozen episodes of 21 Jump Street, but that didn't really go anywhere. Consider it marked defunct.
And I'm TRYING to watch Sanctuary.

I did NOT get around to reading the entire Harry Potter series. Maybe next year. Or this winter. Who the hell knows. I also do not yet have a copy of Stargate season 10, but I haven't been in a hurry to get at it. I finally saw the last episode. Man, that was weird. Just like everybody said.

My DW scarf is at least 6 feet long, and almost halfway done.

"Your ass is mine, Higby!"
"Screw you, Bayliss!

Woke up with two extremely puffy eyes because they were itching last night like nobody's business. It's sad when a cold washcloth works better than prescription eyedrops.

I FINALLY saw the last episode ever of SG-1. On YouTube. Of all places. It was strange, but good. Can't wait for the movies.

I'm reading ElfQuest again because it's been a while.

I really, really need to write something. My muse is crying.
