Last night I dreamed that I fell for Supernatural, hard. Which is odd, because even though I like the show, I'm not sure it has the potential to rivet me completely. Perhaps a by-product of trying to get in the mood for the new season.

I think I'll watch some Samurai Champloo tonight - I'm totally in the mood for Jin and Mugen. In the spirit of revisiting old favorites, I might also mainline a few Life on Mars episodes. Ah, Sam and Gene, some days I miss you dearly.

Holy fuck, I never thought I'd miss PS this much. Serious case of wanting what you can't have, I s'pose. I'm nothing without my stock pics, dammit.

I feel seriously tempted to find myself a site which deals with British slang used in the vicinity of, oh, Manchester round about '73 and a gut feeling tells me I might end up finding one and then things would go ugly in .2 seconds. Not to mention kinky.

Two more days until I'll steer my cheerful self into a Starbucks again and boy if it hasn't been a while. I'll get as high as a kite on sugar and coffeine and no mistake about it. White chocolate mocha, I'm looking at you.

So, I'm thinking about Sam and Gene and how in the world these two stumbled into the happy place at the back of my mind (I was all about Sam and Annie while watching the show, I swear) and these are interesting times indeed.

I want a new icon, and a text one to boot. Too bad I'll have to do without PS for the time being. At least I'm not likely to forget the line.

Tried to watch King Kong (the Jackson version) today but was thrown off by the somewhat strange vibe between Kong and his beauty. Did she love him? Pity him? Whatever the answer, she sure as hell didn't do much in the way of helping him.

I very much feel like watching State of Play but I don't really want to shell out another 20 € for a DVD set that's not exactly essential. Perhaps good old eBay can be of assistance.

LOM season 2, I want you now. Please to arrive here soon. Kthnxnbai.

Gene Hunt, du coole Sau.

Ich hab den totalen Life on Mars Flash. Die 70er sind so gar nicht mein Ding, aber nach 2-3 Episoden hatte ich mich an die Atmosphäre gewöhnt und wham! war ich mittendrin in Sammies durchgeknallter kleiner Welt. Hab mir gleich die zweite Staffel geordert und bin gespannt wie ein Flitzebogen auf das Ende. Schade nur, dass die ganze Serie gerade mal 16 Folgen hat. The good die young, huh.

Bin irgendwie zu faul heute für Englisch oder vielleicht war mir auch einfach nur mal wieder nach der guten alten Muttersprache.

In der Zwischenzeit plage ich mich mit einer Idee für ein Doctor/Master Dings, bei dem ich mich nicht entscheiden kann, welcher POV für die Story besser funktioniert. Den Kern der Sache transportieren beide Blickwinkel, nur eben aus einer anderen Sichtweise. Der Master POV wäre von daher interessant, weil er den Leser ziemlich unwissend lässt und sich das Gesamtbild langsam aufbaut; der Doctor POV steigt schneller ein und dürfte den Leser tiefer in die Story ziehen, weil er mehr vom Ausmaß der Misere enthüllt. Ach Mann, ich wünschte, ich würde solche Sachen nicht immer zu Tode denken, sondern einfach mal losschreiben. Perfektionismus is doof.

Ich glaube, mein AU, in dem Rose der Time Lord ist, hat sich schon totgelaufen, bevor ich überhaupt angefangen habe. Mal wieder ein gutes Beispiel für eine kreative Fehlzündung: zuerst bin ich total begeistert, und wenn ich das Ding dann nach 48 Stunden nicht geschrieben habe, heißt es hasta la vista, baby.

Blöder Tag heute, so im ganzen gesehen. So bin ich eigentlich ganz zufrieden; es nervt nur tierisch, dass ich zu nix Lust habe und mich für nix so richtig begeistern kann.

Finally saw Das Leben der Anderen and boy was it ever good. This is definitely going to be a part of my DVD collection.

I caved and bought Life on Mars S1 (under the pretense of needing new stuff to read from Amazon and since I was ordering that I might as well include the LoM box) and it will be here tomorrow and then I will spend a great many hours happily watching Mr. John Simm oh yes.

Today's the first day of my three-week-vacation and I'm somewhat chagrined to admit I didn't spend it writing (as was planned during those long long weeks of not being on vacation, dammit). I'm pretty sure that's not going to change anytime soon, what with the expected arrival of my Amazon parcel tomorrow. Then again, stranger things have been known to happen.
