Any day that starts with a stab-it-yourself medical test...  
can only get better, right?

This is for a cholesterol/diabetes check, which I don't personally need (but will save me health care $$). I guess it beats driving to the lab and getting numerous vials of blood drawn. *is woozy*

My DVR also opted not to record "Chuck" on Monday, so I can see I'm going to have to investigate farther. And probably chuck (heh) the DVD. This stupid machine lets you delete and record over and over, but I think it gets to the point where it trashes the disk. It doesn't tell you that, of course, until you turn the machine on later to see what happened with your recording. "! Check" it says. Check what? Whenever I see THAT message, the machine screwed up the recording. I swear this goes on:

Me: *presses delete-show button*
Machine: *corrupts disk* *Will decide only during future recording phase to hate disk*

So prior to L&O: SVU (which was very good), we watched more of the Terriers episodes that tsuki_no_bara was hooking people up with at Wincon. It's a very cute show, actually, although there are no actual terriers in it. And given the semi-feckless nature of the two leads, I don't think that title is metaphor either. ;) I like Donal Logue's character in this a lot, and he has great chemistry with the other lead. Plus, Rockmond Dunbar has a job again, and he's awesome!

Tonight: Fringe, and a no-doubt-failed recording of my two CBS shows. *kicks machine*

My cold is lingering. More stuffiness now, and I cut my bike ride short yesterday (too tired). I'd planned to ride again today (if I'm up to it), because raaaaain is looming through the weekend. Just in time for the kids' final soccer games of the year. :0

ETA: Voting is now open at usanetwork_las, fox_las, and nbc_las. Check out the stories!

isn't terriers good? i guess it's called that because hank and britt (altho possibly mostly hank) have a tendency to sink their teeth terrier-like into a problem.... but i think the utter lack of terriers in the show totally threw people off. and apparently the two lead actors are friends in real life, which might explain their fabulous buddy chemistry.

i hope you feel better!

Hank strikes me as being a little terrier-like (in a good way), though Britt is too lazy to light a fire under most of the time.

The two of them are very physical and comfortable with each other (I see what you meant by "not slashy but slashable"), and I think more men are actually like that than the eternally-at-arm's-length depictions we almost always get would lead a person to believe.

We just finished Ep 4, and I hope we'll make it through 5 and onto the Hulu episodes before 6 drops out of their queue!

And thanks so much for pimping it out AND bringing those episodes to share. ♥

I think SVU is having one of its best seasons ever. And my DVR behaves most of the time.

I can't actually think of any _bad_ seasons on SVU. It's just really solid.

The season where Olivia was out for awhile (because Mariska had a collapsed lung) had major quantities of Finn and Elliot, and they were great together. I love Finn...

I suspect my DVR would benefit from a firmware upgrade, but I doubt there's one available. At least it doesn't gain time, like the non-digital one does. :0
