Is This Day Over Yet?

Apparently Sarah is on Letterman tonight (wonder why? ;p) and David Duchovny is hosting The Late, Late Show. Guess I'll be setting the VCR.

I should have known that today was going to be an 'off' day when I left my apartment this morning with everything I needed but my purse and had to go back for it. That was followed by me realzing around 9:00am that my face was itching. See, I bought new foundation last night and tried it this morning. It would seem I'm allergic to it (my skin is fairly sensitive and it's always trial and error as to finding what may irritate it). I confirmed this fact by going to the bathroom and seeing how 'rosy' my complection suddenly was. So, I had to go home to get wash up. I also had to take some Benadryl...which made me sleepy. Which also made it hard to concentrate at work. Then I had to come home and make a cheesecake this evening which surprisingly didn't go up in flames.

On the brightside, Lost was on tonight.
What the hell is it about hearing the word "love" spoken with a British accent that gets me...every...time. Charlie and Claire? They're officially my ship. Could they be any cuter together? I'm thinking she'll be the one to help him when he starts going through withdrawal.

Jack's backstory was rather...blah. Or maybe that's just Jack. I don't dislike the character and, yeah, he'll be a good leader, but he's just not at all interesting to me.

I am curious to know more about his Dad though. He was one scary surgeon. Sure, doctors must accept that they'll lose patients, but his cavalier attitude was chilling.

Maybe not-so-dearly departed dad was an a figment of Jack's imagination, yet it seemingly lead him to water. And where was the body? The coffin remains intact, but the body is missing? Yeah, something is up here.

Still adoring Locke. Terry is invaluable to this show.

Hee! I'm only reading part of this post too, because I haven't watched Lost yet, but I wanted to thank you for reminding me about SMG being on Letterman. And Duchovny's hosting The Late, Late Show, huh? I'll probably have to watch that too!

I was getting too tired to stay up and watch the entire show (I did tape it), but I did see a few miniutes of Sarah's interview. When Dave asked her about the language barrier in Japan, I loved her response that he may notice she talks kinda fast and that even people in this country have a hard time understanding her. :)
Hell, I forgot about The Late, late Show last night (then again I was watching the episode of Lost I taper earlier in the evening). I hope last night's episode of The Late, Late Show repeats sometime. LOST continues to be a great show.
Terry is fantabulous. I loved the show tonight, including Jack. The whole notion of leadership has been on my mind of late. So his arc calls to me.

But more to the point, your poor face. I can totally relate. This happened to me in huuuuuge way with sunscreen. (Neutrogena for Sensitive Skin, I bloody ask you).

What brand was the foundation?

You said the "a" word. Nooooooooo....

What brand was the foundation?

L'Oreal True Match. I've used L'Oreal products before with no problem so there has to be some ingridient in that particular line that doesn't agree with me.

We are so in sync. I said the very same thing to Angel tonight.

I am loving everyone on the show, but also felt that Jack's backstory was a bit lackluster for the (capital H) Hero of our show.

I think we've been so spoiled by great anti-heros such as Spike and screwed-up heros such as John Crichton that when we are presented with the traditional upstanding, nice guy hero we're just left feeling a bit blah.
You poor thing :( I'm sorry you had such a bad day today. Hope the Benadryl has helped and you are no longer rosy-faced.

Lost is a saving grace to this TV season! I adore Charlie - his character is different than I expected when I first read about him. I expected him to have more of an edge, but maybe that will come later. Right now he is adorable :)

Jack's backstory could have had more punch (and I thought Veronica Hamel looked almost too young to be his mother!). I too love Locke, and of course he would know something about the island being magical in some way.

And you would think he be more on edge with the drug problem. But, he's unexpectedly selfless and concerned about the welfare of the others. Since day one on the island he's done what he can to pitch in and help in their survival. So much for a spoiled rock star persona.
I think Veronica has had bunches of surgery. Hence the too young. At least that's how she looked to me.
I saw her from the kitchen so I didn't get a really close look at her, but she does look younger than she should be.
Do you remember what Jack said to Kate at the end?

Apparently I didn't find it that important because I can't remember!

How's your face today, you poor sweetie?

Much better. Where I have a bit of acne it's still a little itchy, but nothing like yesterday.

Hey, your icon reminds me, I wanted to ask you if you've seen 'Hidden Memory' yet? I didn't want to share my fav moment until you had. :)

Ok, spilling. :)

It's the scene where Aeyrn comes bursting through the cell door to rescue the man she loves (alright, yeah, she hasn't admited as much yet, but *we* know it's true ;). Stark goes nuts (as usual) and starts excusing John of betraying him. When John manages to calm him down, Stark asks 'who is she' and John's response is..."That is...the radiant Aeryn Sun." God, I just love that moment to bits. The expression of relief and joy on his face coupled with the simple compliment that says so much of how he feels about her. Sigh.

I'm gonna half to find mor Farscape icons tonight. One's just not cutting it right now. :p
Leni Ba is a B/A shipper.

My Eyes! My Eyes!

I'm aware of hey_lena and some others. It's just a matter of deleting Buffy icons ::shiff, sniff:: and making room for Farscape. These are going to be some tough decisions.

Do you remember what Jack said to Kate at the end?


If I remember correctly, he explained to her that his father had died and she expressed regret. Not much more than that. If you're interested ABC will be reshowing the last two episodes on Saturday evening.

Bor-ing. ;p
What the hell is it about hearing the word "love" spoken with a British accent that gets me...every...time.

I can't explain but it happens to me every single time as well. The person can only be moderately attractive to me but let them say that and suddenly they become incredibly appealing.

I'm wondering about the empty casket too. Should the body actually have been there? Why would they have shipped an empty casket?

And has anyone mentioned the fact that the radio transmitting group shot a freaking polar bear? I, for one, would find that a point of interest.

Good, it's not just me. Dom is OK looking (he's no Hugh ;), but when he said "love" I found myself looking at him completely differently.

Makes you wonder if that really was his Dad walking around - scary thought.

Apparently when someone comes across the rotting carcass, they'll decide to have a chat about it. :p
I'm trying to catch up on LJ while out sick from work today, so I've just now read this entry.

I have the same sensitive skin which breaks out at the least provocation. Remind me to tell you my post Flashback 03 - GOTR concert story sometime. I thought of it when you mentioned Benadryl making you sleepy. Yes it does.
Hope you're feeling better! :)

You didn't fall asleep on James did you?! ;-)

Gods, no. Long story short, one of my friends had been feeling ill since she arrived and fainted near the end of the concert. The paramedic on duty brought her to the back of the auditorium and was sitting with her there after the hall was cleared, and we were all trying to convince her to go to the hospital. She was terribly distraught, just sobbing in fear and distress, scared of what the hospital might find wrong with her and upset at the thought of missing the rest of the convention, and her photo op with James the next day. Anyway, the paramedic said to wait a minute and then left. A couple minutes later he returned with James, who'd come to see her and take a picture with her (we couldn't get the camera to work and it was very embarrassing but I said long story short).

Afterwards, when she was being seen by the emergency room docs at a nearby hospital, I realized my eye had been bothering me for quite some time (but I'd been far too excited to pay attention), and I finally looked in a mirror. What I saw caused me to run out of the bathroom exclaiming to my other friend that I'd seen James Marsters and my eye had melted.

So, other friend had to drive me to another hospital where my insurance would cover me, and there I was given a large dose of Benadryl (IM - and not in the arm) for what turned out to be an allergic reaction in my eye.

After we picked up our friend from the other emergency room, we drove around for nearly two hours before I (the only local among us) got us back to the hotel, courtesy of the Benadryl's soporific effects. That, and I'm navigationally challenged at the best of times.
It's really sad that my first reaction was "OMG, James came out to see you!" Hee. Darn his sinister attraction. ;)

What a terrible experience to have to go through for you and your friend. At least you'll have an interesting story to tell in the years ahead. ;-)

That, and I'm navigationally challenged at the best of times.

You too? Yeah, I've been know to get lost in the city I've lived in for 32 years. :p

Don't fash yourself, you got nothin' on me. I was there, and for my sins I will go straight to hell.

I was standing down in front during the concert, and saw the paramedic leading my friend toward the exit as they walked in front of the first row and out of the side door into the alley. GOTR was performing their last song of the encore. Tell me, have you ever seen those ducks in a shooting gallery at a carnival? Well, that was me. I started to follow. Then I thought, 'She's walking under her own steam, so it's not as if it's an emergency', so I turn back to the stage, but then my conscience pings me because after all, I can't very well pretend as though I hadn't seen her, can I? so I turn around and start to pursue them, only to think 'The song's almost over, and then he'll be gone, but my friend will still be here. And she's walking. What difference will another few seconds-half a minute-a minute at the most make?'. Am I giving you a word picture here? There I was turning back and forth, back and forth, at least several times, like a duck in a shooting gallery. And James must surely have seen the paramedic leading my friend out because they were walking right in front of the front row, and I'm sure he would have seen my shooting gallery duck impression. So, my selfishness was on full display, to him as well as to anyone else who may have been paying the slightest bit of attention, and I will go straight to hell.

In my defense, she was walking, not being carried, and I didn't think that another minute would make a difference, but it was very tacky of me, all the same. I like to think that if the situation appeared to be more serious, I wouldn't have hesitated to follow, but she'd been overcome with hot flashes and faintness since she'd arrived, and when I saw her being led out I was concerned but not surprised. Will you listen to me here, making excuses! Forget it, there's no way to redeem my tacky behavior.

Just saying, don't feel bad about reacting to the surprise James encounter, is all.
You know what's also bad? I was in the third row and didn't manage to notice any of this?!
