Just posting because I've come up against a bit of writer's block (or maybe writer's overload) and although part of my brain is screaming OMG YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO DO OMG OMG OMG, I have to turn everything off and not think for a bit. It's not helping that fall is finally here, after I've been ready for it for weeks. It's drizzly and my feet are cold because both pairs of slippers and most of my socks are in the washing machine right now, and I just want to curl up with some hot tea and doze. I can't wait till it snows.
From an actual conversation with Mohinder-loving friends last night about Heroes and its fandom: Me: Sylar fangirls and Mohinder fangirls seem to get along pretty well. Sylar fangirls and Peter fangirls, though-- J: FanGIRLS? Peter has fanGIRLS? Me: Well...yeah. J: I mean, based on the way he behaves, especially with Nathan, I just really figured he pretty much only has fanBOYS. Me: ...I know several people who would be infuriated by that statement, but even more who will hoot and love you for it. J: I'm not trying to be offensive! I'm just saying...I wouldn't think he would attract fanGIRLS. That's all I'm saying.
Also last night, we played Mario Party on the Wii for the first time. It's a completely addictive and fun game and I probably should not buy it. Except for E and his incessant crowing about how awesome he was and how Luigi always wins. In fact, after he won, he even took a picture of the TV so that he could remember the triumph always. Even his wife wanted to strangle him, I think. There was even a point where M was thinking about eating some candy that would let him destroy half of someone else's coins, and everyone yelled for him not to destroy mine, because I was the only person left with a hope of beating E. On second thought, perhaps I should buy the game so that I can practice and make certain of beating him next time...
OK. Need to get some lunch, and then finish writing this review before I go to read my emails and my flist.
