So, official decision made: I shall be posting to Dreamwidth, cross-posting everything to LJ and allowing comments on either (or both). Every now and again, I will port comments from LJ over to DW to merge the conversations. Let's see how that goes!
All of this came about after a question from a fellow knitter on Ravelry about an LJ alternative with no ads. I cheerfully said "Dreamwidth!" and sent an invite (several other knitters have followed her over, too) and then asked myself, yet again, why I haven't shifted my LJ over. After all, it's something that I meant to do back when the site launched and I set up a free journal. Really, it was mostly laziness and that was the kick in the butt that got me moving :-)
Last night, I was so tired (argh, post-bad-headache-that-might-have-been-
a-migraine) that I couldn't even cope with last week's Glee. I ended up watching a recorded episode of NCIS. It's possibly second only to Grey's Anatomy for sheer insane brain candy. Speaking of which, I should do a Grey's marathon on Friday to catch up.
Tonight I am doing a Holby two-episode-marathon so that I stay caught up with Mum :-) I know, it's total crack and completely insane and I should not have quite the Frieda obsession that I appear to be developing (I need my Frieda/Penny interaction in every episode or I get very sad) but I can't stop. I suspect that I'll even be requesting it on yuletide
this year, despite the knowledge that nobody else ever requests Holby and thus I am bound for disappointment. Again.
Dear Holby City writers,
Please put Frieda and Penny in the same scene at least once in every episode. The occasional all Frieda'n'Penny all the time episode wouldn't go amiss either. Also, never, ever write out Connie, Jaq or Sasha. That would make me super sad. Olly can go any time now. As can Fay. In fact, if those two could be hit by a bus that would be a great Christmas present.
Your Tragic Fan
In slightly classier news, I am six chapters into The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins and thoroughly enjoying it. Way more readable than Turn of the Screw (maybe my sister isn't the best person to ask for classics recs) and completely compelling. I'm very glad that I have The Woman in White to read when I'm done. After that, would it be silly to re-read The Dark Is Rising just because it's set at Christmas and I want to feel Christmassy? Maybe I should hold off to December...
