Trying to gather some motivation here. o_O

It's Sacramento-cold, in the bitter 40s, which is like cold in other areas except that there is stuff to do outside (pruning roses! Putting away Xmas lights!) and it's not cold enough that you can rationalize skipping it. I'd forgotten how bad frozen toes feel...

Watched Friday's Fringe (did I miss an episode, I wonder? The kids always interrupt the 9pm shows, so it's hard to know). Very surprised at September's appearance in that episode (initially got stuck on him being vaguely familiar because he kind of looked like Ewan McGregor, and the kids had talked over part of the plot). Wow. And then the show managed to twist the pathos multiple times and bring on the sniffles, though in the main I still prefer Walter 1 and Olivia 1, for the complexity of their soulds and their pain. /vague non-spoilery musings.

I'm on the Twitter, for those of you I haven't already tweeted. HalfshellVenus over there, too. So far, the few celebs I follow tend to tweet and retweet too often, and I pick up 1-2 spammers a DAY. How so sucky, Twitter?

All right, back to the motivation attempts. Though I hear the sewing machine and other indoor chores calling me... ;)

I've never seen Fringe though I hear that it's a show that's likely right up my alley. How do you like it? Is it worth the time investment?

Yay for being on Twitter! :-)

And yeah... it's been freaking COLD lately. lol....

Stay warm!!!!

I think you'd really like it! With all prior seasons on DVD, it would be great for catchup.

The show draws you in with the weird, and sometimes the false science hurts. But Walter1 is hilarious and amazing, and Olivia1 is soulful, and there are these random dramatic moments that will move you more than you could ever have thought possible. The show isn't just complex in terms of plot-- there is unexpected dramatic complexity. Try it!

I keep forgetting that the SoCal people are suffering through nearly identical weather right now. I'm having trouble believing in today's high of 50, after yesterday barely squeaked up to 45. The main reason I care is that 50-degrees is bike-outside weather (it's a biking day), and 45-degrees is cannot-make-myself-do-it weather. ;)
