nonsensical rambling
If you've left me a comment lately, I'll respond soon.  But not right now.  I just need to ramble a bit, and that trumps everything else at the moment.

I haven't been on the 'net much lately -- here or at Twitter.  Things have been busy, and I've just felt a bit... blah.

In terms of fandom, I feel very removed from Bones.  To be honest, the show's on hiatus and I'm not sure I even miss it. (That doesn't mean I don't love the people I've met because of the show.) I don't want to watch old episodes. And while I wish I wanted to write (or read) Bones fic, I don't. This is likely just a natural and temporary ebb in my relationship with the show; I'm not sure about that, though.  Maybe it's nothing. Maybe it's the lack of new episodes.  Maybe I just need a break. Or maybe Bones simply doesn't match the quality or adult-ness of some of the other shows I've watched recently; shows like Friday Night Lights and The Good Wife

Regardless, I don't know what's the cause of my current lack of interest in all things Bones.  I just know that it makes me sad.  It's just a TV show, it's not the entirety of my life, blah blah blah. Still feel a little empty, though. Silly, huh?

So what are you watching these days?  I'm thinking about Damages, Farscape, In Plain Sight, Lost, Fringe, Sports Night, Supernatural, True Blood, Angel, or The Vampire Diaries (tell me: is this show just awful?).  Any thoughts on what I should hit next, even if it's not on this list?

On a non-fandom note, M. tried ice cream for the first time today; she was totally unimpressed. *g*  We thought we'd go simple -- plain, vanilla ice cream.  I offered her a few tastes, and she kept spitting it out and giving me the "Mommy, you're nuts if you think I'm going to eat this" look.  DH and I thought it was hysterical.

No problem, hon - you're busy just like we all are, and probably even more so with M to keep track of! :)

I feel pretty removed from Bones as well, and I know exactly how you feel. I don't know why exactly, and I don't know if it's permanent, but I've felt like this for months now, and I don't know if it'll change. I've been kind of caught up in the American Idol storm now, enjoying both the music and the lulzy moments of some of FOX's antics (plus I have a wonderfully entertaining podcast about American Idol that I love!). Mostly I got swept up in this because of last season with Kris Allen and Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta being all awesome (and giving me 3 celebrities that I now somewhat obsessively follow, and giving me a new fandom to read fic in and a new couple to ship).
ETA: Not to mention that Adam and Kris (but Adam especially) have quite possibly kind of completely changed the way I look at music and other parts of life as well. It's been an interesting experience that I'm sure I'll ramble on and on about to you all on my journal at some point once I get organized enough to do a long post about them :)

I know I'm planning on watching Friday Night Lights this summer, so I'm really excited about that as I have heard tons of good things about it (not to mention I watched the Pilot and it was awesome)! I'm sure atimi would vote for Supernatural (which is another show I need to check out more once I have time), and I've heard generally good things about True Blood, so I'd say those are definitely worth a try :)

Also, LOL @ M's reaction to ice cream! So funny & adorable, wish I could've seen her face :) ♥
