Stuff That's NOT Happening...  
Which does not include spamming, apparently.

I'm not doing the Brutal Honesty Meme because I'm too thin-skinned for that kind of thing, and I also project that onto other people. ;)

So, for realz in general: If I write you fic for your birthday and you don't even acknowledge my birthday then, yes— that really hurts my feelings. And if you almost never respond to comments I leave on your journal... that hurts too.

From the other direction: Halfshell, you talk too much about RL randomness so plz stop! Also, you owe me comment-replies from the last millenium on your stories. And where's the porn?.

New topic: I went looking today (in a non-stalkerish way) for a user who used to be around the SPN fandom at the beginning. She had the most adorable userpics of herself (including kid pics), and I was hoping for some random happiness from them. But she's disappeared! Username was similar to magic_shell (somebody else has that now), and she was African-American. Anyone? Bueller?

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles-- I wish I'd liked this more. It was okay, but I kept losing focus after the first half-hour each week and so the plot's kind of vague. Perhaps this is why:
HalfshellHusband: Why is this kid Emo?
Me: They cast him because he's pretty. Prettier than the women, even.
HSH: But he's Emo!
Me: I can't help you there...

When that comes up multiple times during the show... it's kind of distracting, you know? Hope TWoP can help me out.

ETA: My distraction is the current Terminator actor Garret Dillahunt (also in "No Country For Old Men"), whose mouth so often forms the shape of an "M." It's bizarre! Half the time I don't even hear what he's saying. :0

Okay, so you may be over the Terminator story but I agree that the whole show is a pretty! boy, two smokin' hot women, and some eyecandy rushing around doing not very much with much urgency.

That said, I enjoy the show muchly. I love how artfully the hair falls into John's deep, soul-searching eyes and how every other word out of him mouth is "MOM!" He's a huge momma's boy, which is hilarious to me and really cute sometimes! I was watching and thinking: was there really just an entire show about John being sad that no one was gonna remember his birthday (when, in fact, no one forgot and he got ice cream and cake hahahaha).

(I can forgive pretty boys a lot of non-acting skills... ever watch Drew Fuller in charmed? Lol. He's a gorgeous, gorgeous man but it sounded like he was reading the bad scrips, no comic timing, no nothing.)

Okay, so, random! but I don't know anyone else who watches this show :)

I'm hoping to get hooked on the SCC again (maybe TWoP can help me decipher the plot). I do like the look of it very much.

I was watching and thinking: was there really just an entire show about John being sad that no one was gonna remember his birthday (when, in fact, no one forgot and he got ice cream and cake hahahaha).
I know-- the peak of Emo-ness! And everyone still came through for him, even Derek. ;)

I could never bring myself to watch "Charmed"-- I saw snippets, but it hurt me. :0 I tend to prefer dramas and the offbeat and sometimes comedies, but I can't really take emo-soaps (the bulk of what's on the CW now), and most sitcoms are a total miss for me. There was Frasier, and I did like Drew Carey, and there's always The Simpsons. \o/ There are some I like but rarely watch (usually scheduling conflicts) like Scrubs and My Name Is Earl and Aliens In America. But the bulk of sitcoms drive me nuts. ;)
