September 30th

I was going to read so much tonight but for some reason I've become really tired. I only read one chapter, and I want to cozy up under the covers and sleep. This book is taking over my life, seriously. But I like that. And I really can't wait to continue with the series.

September 28th

My mom and I are watching Secret Princes. New favorite show? I think yes.

Also, I can't wait to read The Casual Vacancy!

September 27th

I have no idea where September went.

I am straight up exhausted right now. I stayed up until 5 AM reading (totally worth it) and it wore me out. But I am very pleased with my reading. It's been far too long since I've devoured a book like I have with A Storm of Swords. I think the last one must have been The Fault In Our Stars. And next it will be The Casual Vacancy!

September 26th

A Storm of Swords is so hardcore right now! People are dying all over the place! It's tragic and enthralling. I've read so much this week, and I'm going to read a ton tonight too, I hope. But the next chapter is Bran, and I never get too into those. Stupid Bran.

September 25th

The Game of Thrones Challenge is so fun. I've just finished my third graphic (which is below!) and I'm loving getting back into Photoshop. Anyway, I'm watching Friends again...sigh. Face Off was really good tonight! I'm pretty pleased with how this season is going.

Anyway, here's my graphic from tonight, featuring Cersei and her badass dress from Blackwater Bay. :)

September 24th

I need a haircut, like right now. Pixie cuts are ridiculous to maintain.

Anyway, I'm watching Friends. Ross and Rachel are about to GET IT ON. I love this show. It just cracks me up. Everyone is perfect.

September 23rd

I'm watching the Emmys. I just had an emotional breakdown about the Game of Thrones part in the drama montage. CRYING. Lexa, I know you can relate. Dany and Tyrion were both there.

I am about to find out if Peter Dinklage wins.

September 22nd

A Storm of Swords sure is picking up. Pretty sure like ten characters have died so far, and I'm not even halfway through. Plus all the marriages and loss of's remarkable. And a bloody brilliant book that you should all read. (But read A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings first!)

Time for Saturday Night Game of Thrones Skype Session Time with Lexa!

September 21st

Is now a good time for a nap?

I need to read tonight but I'm so tired! It's a bit weird, since I'm pretty sure I slept enough last night.

Also I dreamt about Game of Thrones.

September 20th

Grey DeLisle is such a flawless human being. Like, she used the word 'good' when she should have used 'well' and I still love her. That's true love right there.

A Storm of Swords is REALLY LONG. I feel like I'm making progress and then I realize I've only read 30 pages out of 1,100 and it's sad. But I'm getting there! I shall conquer this book!

Well, time to return to YouTube.

September 19th

Besides being my dad's birthday and Talk Like a Pirate Day, I've decided to make this Watch an Episode of an Animated Show Day. I started my rewatch of Avatar: TLA this morning and while I don't think I'll finish rewatching as quickly as I watched it the first time around, I'm eager to see it all again. It's funny how much of an impact animated shows can make on your life, intentionally or otherwise.

September 18th

Today was not as exciting as yesterday. Today, I slept a lot. I wore (and am still wearing) a cozy sweater. I ate yummy cookies. But I did not meet any celebrities.

Sigh. My hard drive is almost full. Maybe because my laptop is like seven years old and it can't hold much. I really ought to upgrade soon.

September 17th

So I met Tim Gunn today. I didn't even know he was going to be at the mall! But then he was and I stood in line for 2.5 hours and then he and I chatted and he signed my book and ahhh TIM GUNN YOU GUYS.

September 16th

but seriously is it too soon to rewatch A:TLA

I bought another sweater today. I have so many freaking sweaters. But I'm returning one tomorrow because it has like, sharpie or something on it that I didn't notice when I bought it.

I have been having bizarre dreams recently.

I need to get some reading done in A Storm of Swords even though I now know about like 10 people who die. Oh Lexa, we are such bad people!

Saturday, September 15, 2012

September 15th

Game of Thrones night with Lexa! We're spoiling each other because we're bad people. EVERYONE DIES.

September 14th

I'm ready to rewatch A:TLA.

Also I need to read A Storm of Swords because I managed to fall behind because I'm a slow twat and now I need to stay up and read.

I visited Nickelodeon Universe while at the mall today because I wanted to stop by the Aang statue. I did a Fire Nation salute and people probably judged me.

I have the day off tomorrow!

September 13th

Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when Legend of Korra started and it was stupid. Sorry, 20's/30's vibe, cars, electronics, and all the other, more complex things that make me dislike you, but you are making me unhappy. I miss the Gaang.

I need to get to reading A Storm of Swords because I got behind and ahhh that makes me nervous!

September 12th

I'm in a singing mood.

Oh my effing god. Avatar: The Last Airbender was so amazing. Beautiful in every way. If you have Netflix, please watch it. It really is a great show.

I've started Legend of Korra. Not so sure about it yet, but I'm sure it will grow on me.

September 11th

"I'm going to watch Avatar now. If you hear me crying, don't judge me." - Actual sentence I just said to my sister. I'm about to watch the four part series finale and I am feeling all the emotions. I get so invested in shows, plus this show is pretty damn amazing. I hope Legend of Korra is, too!

September 10th

I'm super tired tonight. I'm going to bed early and not watching/reading as much as I want to.

Avatar has really good music, especially this season. Also, I learned the intro monologue. Yay, I'm cool.

September 9th

Today I have discovered a new friend in Pepto-Bismol. How have I never used this product before today? It's awesome!

The new Doctor Who episode was unfortunately once again a disappointment. I worry about this season. And the show.

However, Avatar: TLA is the best thing that's happened to me recently and I just finished season two. I know the show is thought of as "for kids" but oh my god, it's dark and it's about war and it encompasses every genre and it's just great. I'm going to watch it now, actually.

September 8th

Remember when the olympics were on and there were those commercials that were a group therapy session with Shawn Johnson and it was for the new show with Matthew Perry? I never really liked those commercials because the show looked dumb, but oh my god they were on every single commercial break.
So anyway, today there was an ad for the show and I literally did a double take (this is after seeing the Olympics commercial like 40 times) and was like holy shit is that MATTHEW PERRY?! Oh my god THAT'S CHANDLER FROM FRIENDS!
How did I not notice that the first 1000 times I saw that commercial?! The commercial even says "Starring Matthew Perry" did that totally go over my head? I like Friends, and Chandler! I am so slow.

September 7th

I am extremely conflicted. I want to watch Avatar: TLA all night, but I also want to read A Storm of Swords all night. Avatar is my favorite show right now, I swear. I am having ZUKO FEELINGS. I need to read my three chapters first though. (Lexa and I are reading this book club style!) Okay. I need to get started reading now!

September 6th

The layout is currently in a transition period right now, so my apologies for it looking at bit bare. I'm trying to figure out a decent header, but I've kind of been focused on other things as of late. (I'm so, so close to being done with A Clash of Kings!)

I'm possibly heading back to work tomorrow, and it's bizarre because I haven't been there in two days and I feel like I've had a lot of free time. (I spent more of this free time napping than I originally intended to.)

I can't decide if I'm excited for the new Doctor Who episode. I suppose I am excited, but I'm also apprehensive. The last one was a bit disappointing, so I'm really hoping this one impresses me. It's got some great guest stars, so I'm hopeful!

September 5th

Today I have a Doctor Who review for you all. There are no spoilers, so don't worry if you haven't seen the episode!

Thoughts on Asylum of the Daleks (no spoilers)

The biggest problem was that it tried too hard to be interesting.
It was like Moffat (and surely some others) decided that it needed every possible sort of emotion to be present as well as be dangerous, sexy, and new. It just ended up being a bit clumsy, I think.
It’s very hard to tackle so many things in one episode, and with the return of an iconic Doctor Who figure (the Daleks), it seemed like there was an unnecessary amount of stuff. There was too much going on - I’m sure the plan was to make it seem epic because there were plot twists and new characters and old villains and romance and heartbreak and all sorts of other things but it was just too much. 
What I often tend to love about Doctor Who is its subtlety. Clever little lines that make me smile, characters who have genuine, realistic aspects instead of being caricatures of an archetype - but this diverged too far from that. There was no grace or subtlety. It was like someone was trying to convince me that this show was great instead of just showing me through well-done storylines and interesting people.

September 4th

No work tomorrow OR Thursday! It's like I get a weekend off! I'm so, so excited to have time off - it's my first time to have a break in about three weeks. I can rest my feet, finally!


  • Sleep a lot
  • Eat a lot
  • Finish A Clash of Kings
  • I can't remember what I used to do in my free time
  • It's been so long since I've had any

September 3rd

I can't wait for Wednesday! I'm watching Friends in celebration of my upcoming day off. Also, playing with my kitties!

September 2nd

Nadia and I did fitting rooms at work today. We're not even trained to do that. Yes, Labor Day weekend is insane. Now I'm about to go to bed because I'm totally wiped out from working an extra hour after having to get up much is going on! Ahh!

Saturday, September 1, 2012

September 1st

Oh my god. Worst day of work ever. I am beyond exhausted and I don't even wanna talk about it. Please give me a hug, okay, thanks.
