It's that time of the week where I beg for Real LJ Idol votes again. The bottom 5 of each tribe get eliminated this week, so it's going to be close. Polls are here, and only community members can vote this time. *bites nails*

My cold is worse. I'm persistently stuffed-up now, and you always lose sleep each night. I think that's actually the worst part-- being tired and unable to sleep. I'm about to go out for a bike ride, which may be much slower and shorter than usual. :0

Last night, I was all peeved over, "Where's The Mentalist? And what happened to the premiere of Awake?!?", because I'm still in a snit after the Daytona 500 pre-empting of House last week. It wasn't until about 10:05 that I realized it was only Wednesday. D'OH!

We watched 1 1/2 episodes of Justified S1 instead. I'm not sure whether I like the show or just like looking at Timothy Olyphant, but then Raylan's boss starts going on a tear about something, and how can such an ordinary-looking man be so damn funny? Raylan's affair with Ava is tarnishing my view of Raylan a little, though.

And in closing: "Newt. No U vote heem!"

ava does get better - in the beginning she's kind of a one-note character but she develops quite a bit. by the end of s1 i liked her more. also art (raylan's boss, who i wanted to call abe for an entire season) continues to be really funny and ranty and just great. also also, yes, timothy olyphant is pretty easy on the eyes, isn't he. :D (even if raylan makes a lot of stupid decisions as regards his love life.)

i hope you feel better! maybe the bike ride will help.

Does Ava get smarter?

Though my main problem is that Raylan shouldn't be sleeping with her for conflict-of-interest reasons, and also that she really likes him and he seems to think she's kind of a good time. More like he's using her.

Art! That's the boss' name. SO funny.

>>Does Ava get smarter?<<

kind of? she'll never be a rocket scientist but she does eventually demonstrate some brains. she's been pretty fabulous in s3. i like that she's not a pushover, and not just in the "i really want to sleep with you and will pester you until you fuck me" kind of way.

wait until you meet raylan's ex-wife. she's an idiot.

(and yeah, raylan was totally using ava. for a generally smart guy, he does some really dumb things.)

I hope the cold gets better soon.

I has voted for you! I hope that's okay, seeing as how you're not Newt. ;)

Thanks for the vote!

I made the Newt thing into a link, now that I've had a moment to find a link for the cartoon. There are 4 of them in this series so far (starts 2 days before the one I linked), and they're cracking me up.

I love Pearls Before Swine, but I really love the stupid crocs. Also, I'm not sure it's wrong to describe Newt as some kind of evil magician. Its as if he makes people forget his past, his hypocrisy, his voting record...

I hope you get better soon. I highly recommend one of those powders that you dissolve in hot water.

You probably just like looking at Timothy Olyphant. One episode was my limit - I found the show on the boring side, so I stuck to White Collar.

I'm liking some of the snark that shows up in Justified, but I'm still on the fence (8 episodes in!)

But I really DO like looking at Timothy Olyphant, so I'll give him a little more time. *is shallow*

Something has gone terribly wrong in my brain. For some unexplainable reason I`ve replaced Timothy Olyphant with Daniel Craig as the main character X.x

There is nothing wrong with watching it just for him :D
