shopping! and stuff.  

I was obliged to go buy a couple more pinup girl dresses today, due to having a gift certificate that was about to expire. Now I have something to wear to EasterCon. I’ll have to do something about my hair, I expect, but yay fun clothes! :)

I am even at this very moment failing to watch new Castle. *sigh* I’ve been remembering all week that the first new episode was on tonight, and at the critical moment, I forgot. Woe. We’re recording it when it re-airs tomorrow night, but in the meantime my mom will have seen it FOR A WHOLE DAY before I get to! Woe!

I took the weekend off from work, after doing 50K in about 8 days. Back at it now, at a somewhat slower rate than expected, but the book has crept over 80K. Which is dismaying, since it needs to be 100K and I’m doing the wrap-up now, but I have a fairly good idea of what I need to go back and fix to bring it up to count. In the meantime, people are shrieking with agony over the end of MOUNTAIN ECHOES, so I guess I’ve done something right.

Speaking of which, I blew through GLASS HOUSES, the first of Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampie books, on Monday. OMG THE END OF THAT BOOK! O.M.G! It doesn’t END, it STOPS MID-SCENE! Practially mid-sentence! So of course I went and shrieked at Rachel about it on Twitter and she howled with glee. :)

I have, through no intention of my own, gotten quite a lot of extra sleep the past couple of days. I should capitalize on this by going to bed now, instead of staying up all night reloading my Facebook page.

G’night, then.

Thank you for this post-I too forgot to set the Sky Box for Castle so have now set a reminder on my phone to SkyPlus it tomorrow morning!

I've been taping Castle on my DVR, but when I had to replace the defective box recently, and reset all my shows, that one got missed because it wasn't on that week. So I'm going to have to watch it on Hulu, instead. Sigh.

(I have two online friend who I "meet up with" in a chat room on Wednesdays, and we watch together.)

Spoiler: There was a murder!

I am forced to admit that, regardless of how much we genuinely do like Nathan Fillion, we gave up on Castle a season or two back. Too much formula, which was then broken up by kind of awful Huge! Dramatic! Moments! like being trapped with a nuke or whatever. (That story may in fact have been what broke us.)

It's too bad, I loved basically everyone on the show. But I felt like I'd just seen it, you know? That happens to us a lot, though, we often bail on shows after a couple or three seasons.
