Toil and Trouble

Wanna know what a really dumb show is?

The S
arah Connor Chronicles

And not just because Brian Austin Green is now a cast member (apparently).
There. I said it.
Okay, moving on.

Today is a day involving the dreaded double.
Double shift, that is.
I've been here for almost twelve hours now, and my carrot sticks and I are getting a little bored. And, of course, the subsequent heartburn that comes along with the carrots.
I'm an old woman sometimes, what can I say.

And now, a letter to my dear friend Molly Elizabeth (aka The Other Molly, aka VintageMagnolia)

Dear Molly,
I'm reading this book called I Capture the Castle.
Perhaps you've heard of it?
Anyway, it's pretty spectacular.
It reminds me of a Bronte novel. Or of when we were living in the unholiest of unholy places.
I don't know if you've read it, but you probably should. Because, you know. You have so much free time.

I'm going to my parent's house for Thanksgiving this weekend. Yes, I'm well-aware that Thanksgiving isn't until next weekend. However, due to the whole "being a grown-up and having a job" thing, I have to work Thanksgiving day. Therefore, my family in all it's loud and vocal glory will be gathering on Saturday to celebrate. Except we'll most likely be having lasagna or mostaccioli or some such nonsense.
Because that's how we roll.

Oh yeah.
I saw a preview for the new JJ Abrams joint.
It's called "Star Trek." Maybe you've heard of it?
I've never been much of a trekkie (and by "much", I of course mean not in any remote sense do I fall into that category). However, the preview looks un poquito badass. So I might have to go see it.
Okay, I'll probably definitely go and see it.
Plus... SYLAR.
I mean, hel-LO!

The gods seem to be aligning their powers in an effort to get me to read The Glass Castle. I can't fight it much longer. We coooooould try a little book exchange-y. I'll show you mine if you show me yours?

And at least BAG had the wherewithal to knock up Vanessa Marcil, the most beautiful person on the face of the Earth.
