I guess I keep harping on this, but some of the social constructs I encounter disturb me. This is 2008, right?
... then again, I may be over-educated. Or I could take things way too seriously.
Anyway! Speaking of things that are definitely *not* falling in line with social norms: How much do I love Torchwood?
(((((THIS MUCH!!!)))) RTD is doing a brilliant job with Doctor Who, but Torchwood is like his own little playground. He had me hooked from the moment Jack introduced Ianto as 'looking good in a suit'. I want to *be* Jack Harkness when I grow up. ^_~ Seriously, I don't think it will come as a surprise to anyone that adore Jack and Ianto, both separately and as a unit. However, I also have a massive crush on Tosh (I loved her affair with Mary in 1.07, and she struck me as insanely adorable dressing up for her frozen boyfriend in "To The Last Man"). I even like Owen. (Well, most of the time.) I don't like Gwen,
"Why, would you miss me?"
Oh, Ianto, you are a man of few but potent words. ^_~
I'm kind of frustrated, because I have two Torchwood bunnies, in addition to wanting to write more of "Certain For the Dead". And yet, my muse, she has flown the coup. Granted, she's probably bored. Most my week nights look like this:
-Clock out from work
-Pop MST3K (sometimes Film Crew or Red Dwarf) in the DVD player
-Drink Starbucks while drawing and laughing at the sci-fi comedy
-Gather whatever is needed for class the next day
-Shower and bed
Sometimes, if Sam and I are really feeling wild, we go to Wal-Mart and grap some pizza before he goes on third-shift.
*sigh* At the end of the day, I'm usually exhausted and need to laugh at something. However, I'm starting to miss writing something awful-- I hate having a block, and I haven't written anything since I finished a twelve page story called "Song of Emily", which was a Christmas present for my grandfather. Arg! Plus, I signed up for a Lily/Severus fic exchange, the product of which is due in May. "Oh, May," I thought when I saw the challenge, "I hardly ever do challenges-- it'll be fun, and May will be easy." Hahaha, silly me.
Is there a Department of Missing Muses?
On the upside, I just watched two episodes of Band of Brothers, simply because it was on the History Channel. I always forget how much I love that show until I watch it again-- it's so unusual to have so much honest fondness for so many characters. Basically, I'd take the whole company home with me, if I could.
And, no matter how stressful your life gets, it's always good to remember that you could be trying to avoid German artillery fire while crouching in a foxhole someone crapped in. Perspective, people! ^_~
