I've pretty much abandoned Tumblr for the moment as it was eating my life (the sad part is that at some point I will not only go back but have thoughts about catching up, oy), but I wanted to share a photo I discovered there that I just adore to pieces:

Somewhat related, I got this lovely Primeval screencap and have been using it as my desktop,

but I may need to change it because it might just be too distracting. I find myself not only spending an awfully lot of time looking at it, but occasionally surprising myself with the funny noises I make.

Excuse me while I FLAIL FOREVER.

I still miss Cutter so much sometimes, but at the same time -

oh Matt.

Your pardon while I wallow in the manpain.

But also my dear boy, did no one ever explain to you that one's jacket is unbuttoned for combat?

I don't know if I can stand the fact that there's only one episode left. You don't even want to know the fic that's percolating in my brain.

Thank you for my snowflake cookie anonymous flister! It even has those wonderful candy ball bearings on it!

I realize it was made because someone said, "Hey, let's do Tin Man but with Alice in Wonderland, but I liked Alice. As a Primeval fan it was lovely to see Andrew Lee Potts and Matt Frewer BROKE MY HEART.

Have some links that show more reasons why corvids rock:

And another link I've been holding onto for a while now:

Note that the New York Times has not forgotten to capitalize their article titles, even though many other news organizations, including the BBC, have. There was even a bit in the Magazine section of the BBC News site today defending their recent practice of not capitalizing acronyms, which I think is just an excuse for not knowing how to turn off AutoCorrect. Grr. Not on, BBC News.

Geez, I really haven't been around much lately - I need to get my priorities straight! This is especially true since I realized that my recent habit of staying off the computer on at least the first part of the weekend meant I forgot about [livejournal.com profile] fandom_me's blog-a-thon! Woe! I hope y'all had fun and raised a lot of money.

Despite having access to it I never did get around to watching CoE until it aired on BBC America. I'm not going to talk about anything I didn't like about it just yet. I will say that Johnson (Liz May Brice) ended up being a character I could stand to see more of in one form or another.

Primeval is over and there will be no more. I'm afraid there was nothing in the last couple of episodes to elicit particularly strong feelings in me, but I did enjoy it while it was around.

I apparently am going to fall very hard for Being Human. Is this a surprise to anyone?

Warehouse 13 is cute fun, not quite as smart as Eureka but with a similar sensibility. I'm having a hard time remembering to catch the new episodes as they're on Tuesdays, a night I'd gotten used to avoiding That Channel like the plague because of the pro wrestling that Does Not Belong. Worse decision: pro wrestling or the name change? I've tried to decide but then my brain implodes from the extreme suckage involved.

Merlin continues to be so wonderfully happily slashy I can't stand it.

Also, last night's In Plain Sight? Oh Marshall, you poor baby.

How are you all doing, and what's pinging your fannish radar these days?

I'm baaack

So first of all, I've pretty much been offline since Friday, so please forgive me for not knowing what you've been up to. I will try to catch up soon.

Secondly, I CAN HAZ A TV. In some respects it was ridiculously expensive (my dad said he paid as much for his fifty-ish inch model as I did for my 32"), but when I hook my laptop up to it? Totally worth the money.

Unsurprisingly I've spent the last few days watching a lot of TV. I got to catch the first two episodes of s3 Primeval Saturday and thanks to a mini-marathon on Sunday I think I'm mostly caught up with In Plain Sight. Wow does that show make me cry a lot. Then honestly the last two days have been mostly flotsam and jetsam, but that's OK. I've realized I don't have a lot of time to catch up with Burn Notice before the next season starts on June 4, eep. In some respects I'm just going to have to consider the last six months as Lost Time, but I'll catch up with the majority of it eventually.

Also? I get to watch Chica again!

So what have y'all been up to?

OK, I know Primeval is just fluff, but that didn't keep me from actually shrieking aloud when Abby said, "Girls don't talk comics."

Uh yes, quite a few of them do. Some of them are pretty cute, too.

More importantly: hey, Hodges and Haines, HOW COULD YOU HAVE ABBY SAY THAT?! How many comic-reading young girls did you just make feel a smidgen more insecure about being themselves by that comment? You idiots.

Even more importantly: that's hardly even a real question. Wolverine, of course.

Oh, and about that reveal spoilers! )
