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.

I feel like my love for Bones comes and goes. I convince myself that I'm over it, then I watch a good episode and go, "maybe I'm wrong." Eh, it's on the TiVo, I get to them as I get to them.

I love getting online and talking about my shows, but sometimes this fandom really turns me off to the show...it's like there is this weird agreement that we can all complain about how much we hate this/that/the other, but the moment someone else does, it's a heinous crime. And I am so sick of the whining about the timeslot and the hiatuses. I can understand longing for a more...I'm not sure if this is the right word, but adult (or maybe "serious" or "moderated") conversation.

Recs: I started this and it got rambly, so I organized.

Fun, light, no need to concentrate too hard:

The Vampire Diaries (started watching for Ian Somerhalder, never expected to like it...it's doing way better than Twilight or True Blood with the vampy thing)

Castle (Nathan Fillion!)



Modern Family

More engaging:

Lost (begin at the beginning, please God)

Mad Men

Supernatural (you could probably tune in now, but some of the subtler "WOW/WHAT" moments require long-term knowledge)

On the off-TV note, I told my mother than Coca-Cola was "disgusting" when I first tried it. Apparently I likened it to medicine and told her that I never wanted to drink that ever again. I was a little drama queen.
