Lots of interesting discussions with my f-list over Watchmen today, not to mention getting a better idea of what true graphic novels are all about. I've got some things to add to my reading list now. :)

Went for a bike ride today-- brrrrr. About 54 with cold wind, and I spent the first half of the ride wiping tears out from under my right eye (always that one, for some reason). Lots of people dressed like me, in tights and long sleeves and/or jackets, but one serious cyclist had on a tank t-shirt and shorts. WHAT. The windchill alone was miserable!

Lots of turkeys out, and I saw the wattle on one of them up close. Yick-- about 4 inches long, looking like an elongated testical, and seriously, what are wattles for? It's not like they're external gallbladders or something necessary. There was also a lone goose in the river randomly honking at god-knows-what. Further proof that geese cannot, for the life of them, shut up.

Tonight's 24: I cried along with Jack. *sniffle* Tonight's Castle? Nathan Fillion might finally get a chance with this show, which was funny and sassy, and that man is SO damned handsome that I need him to make weekly appearances on my TV-- in shows I can tolerate.

I've got tonight's Chuck on DVD, though it'll have to wait. Looking forward to it!

I still find the idea of wild turkeys fascinating. Even though in the US they are native wildlife but all these turkeys gobbling about like pheasants?

They're gigantic, hideous freaks of birds (though they taste good-- heh), and they do gobble. It's the silliest sound.

We used to have none on the bike path, but now there's this proliferation of them and they're dangerous. Stupid and big is a terrible combination for a road obstacle. ;)

We have pheasants too, which I see once in awhile (I heard one yesterday, but it was in hiding). Very pretty birds, but my god-- what a bizarre noise they make. :0

Haha, turkeys' wattles are not the prettiest things, I'll second this. We had turkeys for a few years on the farm here, and wow. They had to be the meanest and ugliest creatures ever. xP

So, Castle's good then? I haven't watched it...sort of been wondering if it's good enough to take a chance on...Hm.

The tails are attractive, but as for the rest of the bird... it's clear that they're related to vultures, and GOD but that wattle thingy is ugly. And the blurb over their noses.

Castle was fun and bantery, and Nathan Fillion is charming. I'd say it's worth trying out, at least (perfect for me, since Monday at 10pm is otherwise an 'empty' slot). And since I already gave up on "Dollhouse," I can definitely squeeze Mr. Fillion in. ;)
