Who Overloaded My Thursday Nights?  
So, I guess we all know what show's on tonight. \o/

In the spirit of that, I direct you to this gorgeous manip/artwork by digitalwave, which is PG-13 and S4-centric and Gen, and is all kinds of distracting: Blaze of Glory Please give the artist some love! And perhaps write a story around that picture. :)

Life On Mars premieres tonight, and I'll be watching (even though it will NOT be mostly about Harvey Keitel). But I'm disappointed to discover that The Eleventh Hour with Rufus Sewell, which I've been awaiting since early summer, is on opposite Supernatural. *cries* I don't have Tivo, and my one reliable DVR will be recording SPN as I watch it (don't judge me!). I don't want to Torrent, though, if I can help it-- I'm worried about sneaky viruses and such. I foresee the use of the dreaded backup VCR, whose tapes are hated by the primary DVR/VCR machine. :(

On a totally unrelated topic... has anyone tried the "extended cycle" birth control pill yet? Assuming I'm not in a risky age category, I'm becoming more interested in that depending on how well it works. Namely, I am sick to death of having 1.5-2 weeks of every 4 spent being absolutely ravenous, especially when I've been trying to lose weight ever since child #2! However, I don't want a really prolonged hormonal cycle where those 1.5-2 weeks might potentially become a solid month. Anyone have personal experience with this medication?

Ah, I'm so spoiled. Husband got snipped right after Little Bit was born, so I am FREE of birth control issues (thank goodness).
We were planning on that, but it fell into the timeline where HSH was getting MRSA infections and going in and out of the hospital, and even got one on the perineum that had to be tunneled out (!). Followed by hospitalization for a bladder infection.

At that point, we were scared to let anyone cut into any part of his skin anywhere in a medical setting. :0

But... that would have just been for additional safety. I discovered during the 16 months of trying to get pregnant the first time that my problems with acne and PMS are much worse when I'm not on the Pill at all. Hence, I'm still looking at better Pill means!
