I'm sure you're all just dying to know which stand mixer I chose.

*drum roll*


BUT Amazon is crazy and their prices fluctuate all the time so it was actually only $255.49 instead of the $285.79 it was just a couple days ago. Which means instead of almost $50 more than the cheapest one, I only paid about $16 more. Now I'm just hoping there isn't some crazy ass sale on it and I miss it by a couple days. Still, it could just as easily go up again and the sooner I get it, the sooner I can start using it. Just in case, I should probably never look at that product again.

Also, Hulu totally won April Fools this year. They've taken it down now, but when you went to their main page, it was 1996 again. Grainy pictures and everything. I took screencaps because I'm a loser, LOL.

The X-Files, Sliders, and NewsRadio )

PS I'm totally addicted to this right now. Both the vid and the song. Hell, I just bought the song from Amazon. That's saying something right there.

‎So the last couple of days have been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me. Mostly down though. So more like a plummeting emotional elevator? I don't have the energy to go into it now, but at the moment, things are... okay.

Got a new manager at work though and I'm a little anxious. Only worked with her once so far. She seems alright, but I just don't really know. We'll see how it plays out I guess.

White Collar was wonderful. Loved the ending (and the bit right before, especially). Not happy it's time for the midseason finale already though. Psych was hilarious. Shawn being a fanboy was adorable.

Merlin's starting up again soon. I look forward to the insanity ;)

And I'm currently enjoying Grandma's House. Normally I wouldn't really be into this sort of stuff - I get TERRIBLE second-hand embarrassment - but I love Simon Amstell. I love that he can't really act and he looks like he's going to bust out laughing at any moment. It's all just part of his charm. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from the first episode. )

And in fandom collision news, in an interview with Benedict Cumberbatch (my brother actually asked me if that was his real name) here, he was asked who his favorite actors/actresses were and he responded:

Stephen Dillane, Mark Rylance, Simon Russell Beale, Eddie Redmayne, James McAvoy, Casey Affleck, Ryan Gosling, Jimmie Stewart, Adrian Scarborough, Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Rod Steiger, Steve McQueen, Martin Sheen, Alison Janney, Sissey Spacek, Meryl Streep, Nancy Carroll, Juliette Binoche, Maggie Gylenhall, Amy Adams. There is an infinitely bigger list... God I hate lists!

Obviously I did the bolding there ;) But yeah. I don't know. That made me really happy. I 'know' that Ryan is a wonderful actor. I've seen it. And he was nominated for an Academy Award ffs. But I still see him as Sean Hanlon/Young Hercules. Either way, I'm proud of him.

And I'm proud of Toma! He is no longer considered a Jr. and now has his very own page


And for what it's worth: I won't be crossposting anything of mine or anyone else's to FB or Twitter. And while I doubt anyone would want to crosspost anything I've said, I'd rather you didn't. Right then. That's enough of that.


Finally, come and join [ profile] sherlockland!

I did fuck all today. It's not even funny. It's hot here (and of course I mean the Nor Cal version of 'hot') and is supposed to be even hotter tomorrow. Thankfully it should be cooling down after that. And there you have our 'summer', folks. Two days of temperatures in the 80s towards the end of August. Yet I still complain :P

Anyhoo, I had today off and I have tomorrow off. Unfortunately my mother is on vacation right now as well. The house is too small for everyone to be off all day at the same time. I didn't get up until after 11am and, as usual, I'm not quite sure how it's become this late without me doing anything. I watched the new Melissa & Joey as well as the new White Collar. Oh, and I watched a couple episodes of my newest addiction, Would I Lie to You? (And yes I know my icon is from QI. Another brilliant show.) I often find myself wishing America had shows like this, but then I realize that the guests (and host most likely) would be shit and terribly awkward to watch. So I thank the Internet Gods instead.

Tomorrow, I hope to be slightly more productive. I mean, I love doing nothing, but you end up feeling more tired and sluggish than before. I hope to be up at least a couple of hours before noon. I hope to maybe leave the house, even for a minute. I'd like to knock some things off my to-do list, no matter how small. I'd like to watch a couple movies because at this rate I'm not going to make 100 before the end of the year. I also want to start rereading the Sherlock Holmes stories along with the [ profile] bakerstreaders :)

Speaking of Sherlock, it's definitely my newest obsession. I loved the stories when I was younger. I loved the TV series with Jeremy Brett (still one of my all time favorite adaptations). I thoroughly enjoyed the movie with RDJ and Jude Law. But something about this new series just calls to me. I love Doctor Who, but I don't have the need to really read fanfic and such for it. I love talking about it with fellow fans and trying to work out what's going on, but I haven't really enjoyed reading fanfic and being involved in that part of fandom for a while. I enjoyed Merlin like that for a bit. Torchwood, sort of. Probably not really since Stargate SG-1. I even had a dream where I could see Sherlock and John from the outside, like I was watching the show, but I was John. His thoughts were my thoughts. It was weird and felt very real. Alas, no sexyteims between the boys I'm afraid.

BTW, the world needs more Sherlock vids to Ke$ha songs. Just sayin'.
spacemonkeyluvn: (sabrina:: PANCAKES!)

Melissa & Joey was actually REALLY cute.

And funny.

Granted I love Melissa Joan Hart and I've been all nostalgic about 90s TV lately, but still. It's cheesy as hell, but I was laughing. Out loud.
spacemonkeyluvn: (psych:: i like to move it move it)
Psych, I've missed you so much!

In other happy-making news:

* Casting news for Community's season 2 premiere (!!!) My favorite part - )

* There may be a position available at my friend's workplace and she put in a good word about me. It offers double what I make now.

* I might have gotten a friend into Doctor Who. I was going on about series 5 today and she said it sounded really interesting and she'd love to give it a go :D

* Oh, and while I'm at it, the gag reel from White Collar season 1 (El. Oh. El.)

I had more, but I've sold some shows over the years, like Smallville, Scrubs, Reba. And I have more X-Files, but on VHS. I still feel like I'm forgetting some... Also, I'm not including shows I've burned to disc or saved to my hard drives. That would be a MUCH longer list. And no movies. I don't think I could even name them all.
spacemonkeyluvn: (dw:: can you hear it?)
I had to work this morning even though it was supposed to be my day off. And I'll be working the rest of the week, New Year's Eve and Day included. Ugh. So Tired. And not feeling well (possible UTI). Plus, it's never really a picnic at home either. I could really do with like a week off in a row. And not just because I'm recovering from surgery. I should shower, but I don't want to get out of bed. It's not even 6pm and I'm ready to fall asleep. Except for the fact that my mother is playing Rock Band.

I saw some old high school friends the other day. We all had brunch together. It was nice to see them again, but it felt like that scene in Friends where I ordered one of the cheapest items because I'm poor, but we all ended up splitting the bill evenly. I wanted to say something, but we only do this like once a year, so I let it slide. Plus tip, I ended up spending about $22 for a waffle. It was a nice place, but fuck that. Next time, let's meet at IHOP or Denny's.

Doctor/Master audio clip from 'The End of Time, Part 2'. Is it Friday yet?! I don't know if I can take all this. I haven't really been talking about TV, even though I've been watching it, but I quite enjoyed 'The End of Time, Part 1.' It was cracky and ridiculous, but it worked. It's darker than normal, but give me Master/Doctor and I'm good with just about anything. I'm easy like that. I'm scared for Friday though. We already know how it ends, sort of, and I'm not sure I'm ready to see/experience that. I've already watched Part 1 at least twice, which is rare for me, so close together. Lately, the only thing I've been rewatching is White Collar. I also rewatched the latest ep of House because I'm craving the Holmes/Watson & House/Wilson dynamic ♥

Random bit: I noticed it while watching it the first time, but I really love the soundtrack to Sherlock Holmes.

Also, not my proudest moment, but this made me LOL: from

Okay, this entry is all over the place and making little sense. I think it's time for a shower and nap.
spacemonkeyluvn: (toma:: Tomapi xmas)

They were performing this. Now they just need to perform this again. At least that opening bit ;) Or even this.

On a slightly related topic, I really need to rewatch both Maou and Coffee Prince. The first because holy crap, I love that show (spoilers for the finale), and the second because (as I've said before) a Gong Yoo in love is one of the most adorable things in existence.

Oh, and my boss gave me a $50 Target gift card for Christmas <3 A bunch of us from work went out to eat dinner tonight. The food was meh, but it was a nice time.
spacemonkeyluvn: (ofd:: I love you THIS MUCH)
I've had a semi-crush on Gong Yoo ever since I saw him in Coffee Prince and now that I'm watching One Fine Day (thank you, Crunchyroll) that crush is coming back pretty hard. It'd be one thing if I just found him attractive (which I do, especially when he smiles), but he plays the best romantic leads ever. Granted I'm saying this after having only watched him in 1 series and 4 episodes of another series, but still. Watching him act like he's in love for about 5 seconds and I already want to marry him and have his children *facepalm*
