ARGH! The last minutes of the episode!

Damn, those writers really know how to make me next week's episode NOW.

Because I am both a masochist and a glutton, in September I found myself reading Freedom and The Corrections at the same time. It didn't take me long before I realized I wanted to hurt the characters in both novels with a sharp, rusty, poky object of some kind. In a weird John Sheppard fit I picked up War and Peace, which I can say I've made a bit more progress on that I think John ever did. It helps not loathing the characters and finding Tolstoy a fun writer, but now everyone is marching off to meet Napoleon's army and I got distracted again and so I picked up a forgotten book from the To Read pile, The Terror by Dan Simmons.

I've been trying to read at night instead of playing with my computer, but it turns out that holding a book is also bad for my carpal tunnel. I've been told to embrace more passive activities for evening entertainment, but most TV is so boring to me lately. Except Dexter! Oh my, Sunday's episode was exceptional and reminded me why I used to enjoy the show so much. I stopped watching after episode 1 of S4, because GAWD, that scene in the bathtub! I still freak out even thinking about it. Also, Mr. L refuses to watch that show with me. Maybe I can catch up with S4 now, since I know the major spoilers.

SPN tonight! YAY! I was left so confused last Friday, because I didn't get the emotional punch I was expecting in one particular scene. It was just weirdly cold. I hope the writers are going somewhere with this and it's not just a completely new and unexplained take on one character.
