I was getting sore irritated with the colour scheme so, yeah, I re-did my LJ layout. By which I mean, new header, new colours. I didn't have the want in me to do more than that. In the meantime, I'm waiting for more 30 Rock, and I've started up on season 2 of The Wire. Also: I have SG:A 1x01-04 waiting for me. I watched the first ten minutes of Rising and was very giddy. Did I mention I love pilots? Because, yeah, and nothing gets the happy buzzing than going back for some old school.
The next Numb3rs rewatch should be Democracy because I already capped One Hour. Except the whole team is so damn awesome, I'm going to rewatch that one as well. (The scene when David is in the freaking auditorium? DAMN. I'm so into the Granger/Sinclair dynamic right now, and not just as a ship that I occasionally write, but them as presented in canon. They are kicking my ass.)
The other day, I was thinking about how season 2, for me, was really bound up in Don and Alan's relationship, and how I felt season 3 was really poor from that perspective. I don't know, I get irritated by Alan sometimes, which is a shame because like I said, in s2, I was all about that father-son relationship, and how Alan's relationship to Don was filtered through Ma&Pa Eppes' relationship with Charlie. Also: random ideas of first-borns versus whatevers. I don't know. It sort of went to pot, unfortunately.
I think it comes as NO SURPRISE that I'm really, really eager for Megan to be back out there doing things. I think I need to rewatch some season 2.
I've run out of non-academic texts to read, so I should probably get back to Homer and Graves, right? Argh. It's not even that I'm not interested, it's just that I find the Homer translation really, really dry (and the tone is weird, too), and the Graves text is a hard read in and of itself. I'm also freaking out a little - okay, a lot - about what the theoretical/academic base for my dissertation is going to be. The three texts I'm covering cover a lot of ground; they're all post-modern works, but they're also in their own little spheres. AND I need to re-read them all, taking notes. I'll be glad to get back to Soton so that I can (a) settle in before the semester begins (WHY am I taking that creative writing unit? I'm going to die) and (b) use the freaking library. I'm hoping to find a spot in there that I can claim as my own. And I'm hoping to invest in a very, very cheap MP3 player so that the silence doesn't make my head implode.
I really, really, really want to watch some Deadwood. Is that weird? Wait, don't answer that.
edit: Host is being a bitch, so the link code is suffering a snafu. Will be fixed in due course, naturally.
