Let me sleep

I'm on a break from losing weight. I've had it for 10 years, it can wait a couple of weeks more, eh?

A funny thing happened to me last night. I don't know how to quite phrase it. I can describe what happened, bullet point style, but I can't quite describe my thought process, or how I felt about the whole thing. Or maybe I'm just not sure.

I was walking home at about midnight from the office, and this guy stopped me to talk to me outside this sports bar. He was slightly drunk, but buzzed rather than sloshed. He kept calling me beautiful and cute and sweet and how I had an attractive personality or something, to which I roll my eyes, because I don't think I'm beautiful, and even though I may appear to be sweet, I'm not a nice person.

He wanted to give me his number, so I let him, and then he wanted to talk to me some more so I asked him if he wanted to walk home with me. Because I was bored, and I wanted to... observe him? Heh. anyway, I was smiling, and laughing, and probably giving the impression that I was having a good time, which I wasn't. Not that I was having a bad time, or that I was pretending, but I was just kind of feeling okay and that's the way I am. So I was kind of noticing that as I was talking to him, and wondering how I could make there be less of a dis... dis... disjunction? uhh, difference between what I'm like on the inside and outside.

When we got back to my place, and I went to the back door that leads to 23450872602072 apartments, so he doesn't know which one mine is, he wanted to give me a kiss on my cheek, and I said sure, because I didn't care. And he did, and it was nice, but not nice because it was from him, but because it was a kiss.

See, all of this sounds so ambiguous, because I wasn't attracted to him, and at the same time, he wasn't this creepy guy or I would have told him to go away. I was just bored, I guess? Blah blah blah.


I am a couch potato, yes I am.

Jack and Bobby is an awesome show. Good idea, good execution. And I love the fact that the mom is such a strong character, and an integral part of the show.

Stargate Atlantis continues to impress me with how not stupid the characters are, and how complex the themes are. And how nobody really gives a fuck if somebody's feelings are hurt when lives are on the line unlike some other space exploration series. *grin*

I wonder if the whole Nip/Tuck incest storyline upset anyone. I think I've been desensitized by years of incest fics. :P

It disturbed the fuck out of me! Just like Steinbrenner.

Really? I thought it was all foreshadowed and everything. Although, basically I expect Adrian to suddenly have sex with just about any character on the show.

Steinbrenner?

It was totally forshadowed, although when they started having sex my brain kind of discarded the information that they were related, for my own protection.

Dude, so do you think that Ava was telling the truth when she said that he's adopted? Or was she just trying to make it seem less icky that they had sex?

I totally think she was lying. Although she still never admitted to having sex with him. But yeah I think he's her kid.

I know I'm a geek and all, but I'm glad to see that someone else likes Jack and Bobby! I'm kinda sorta sorry however that we know who will be president.

The cynic in me is sure they will cancel it soon - they seems to do that to a lot of shows that I can find the time to watch. :)


Heh, I think you're the only other person I know who watched it. The problem with their marketing campaign is that even though they do mention the year 2049, the association of "Jack and Bobby" with Kennedy is just too strong.

I would have thought that was what it was about if it hadn't been for the reviews in magazines that told me more about the show, and I would have given it a miss too if it had been about them.

I thought the same.

It's too bad. I thought the scene when the the mom tells Bobby about his name and he replies, "that's all? That's boring" was just great.

I think I 4 other people I know who watched it. I really don't watch a lot of TV (and I don't mean to sound all preachy - it's that most of tv sucks) and I want this show to do well. And like you said, love the strong mom.

Yeah, that was funny. :)

Going back to the revealing which brother became president thing, it would have been interesting to keep guessing, and getting misled from episode to episode, but it would have become increasingly difficult for them to keep up the clips from the future and not give it away, and it would have become the focus of the show, instead of the family drama.

Basically when they revealed that Courtney was the president's wife, I knew it was Bobby, though, cos' they mentioned in the show review that they went with the other brother than they'd initially planned. :P

Ah, I didn't realize about the switch. But yea, I think it would have been harder to keep it under wraps.


this post made me think, we are all sold this bill of goods for how to live life, what makes us happy WHAT IS A ROMANTIC MOMENT and this post made me think how phoney it is.

And I am starting to believe that slashers are five years ahead of the arc of popular culture. I've always wanted to be cutting edge.

Slash is just unstoppable. Any woman who isn't homophobic who's exposed to it just succumbs. It's kind of stunning how it remains underground. I guess it's just words and just women writing them. :P

women's work is never valued!
