I still haven't caught this week's Invasion (FYI - Season 1 comes out on DVD this fall. :), but I did squeeze in Alias last night. I'm still not sure what the point of the episode was. Kill off as many people as they can? Introduce AnnaSyd to the general populace? Have Sloane act like an emotionless zombie? Seriously, has Ron Rifkin given up too? When Sloane's wife died he made me feel sympathy for the rat bastard. You could see the pain he was experiencing every time you looked at him. His daughter dies and, oh well, he has a plane to catch.
And what a waste of Mia's time. Nadia is in a coma all season, given a new lease on life, then has it snatched away in a lame ass fight. Now Syd gets to deal with yet another loss of a loved one. If I was her, the next tall building I'm on top of I would leap without the parachute. And how is Irina going to deal with this? Maybe they are setting it up for her to return and off Sloane? Or maybe Jack will have had enough.
Michael Vartan *really* returns next week. And it looks like he gets duped by AnnaSyd. Joy. Let's rehash the Lauren fiasco why don't we. At least he looks good. I can always turn the sound off.
I was rather 'Meh' on this weeks ep until the last few minutes when JD tells Cox why he was really avoiding seeing him and then seeing the whole group hang out together in the bar. But what really made it all worth while was when Cox called JD...JD! Now maybe he's used his actual name before, but it's the way he said it and I love Zach's subtle reaction to the gesture.
I saw the latest trailer for Superman Returns and way not to inspire me to want to see this film. I've liked most of Bryan Singer's work. The 'X-men' films aren't perfect, but they stand out as above average for the genre. Not to mention, he gave us the Hugh's - Jackman in 'X-Men' and Laurie in 'House'. Though both seemed more a matter of luck then any keen insight on his part. This Routh guy he found to play Superman has all the charisma of...well...he has no charisma. And his acting doesn't seem particularly riveting from the bits of it I've seen. To be fair, what I have seen makes the film look like a straight up remake of the original. Then why bother making it? Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it will be great. Or maybe this will be the summer blockbuster that tanks. There is one every year.
A belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! to sal101010. In addition to the giant cookie I hope you got some great gifts and had a marvelous day. No 'Bones' this week though. How dare they do that to you?!
And Happy Cinco de Mayo to any of those who celebrate it. We had a little celebration here at the firm. I got roped into baking. I was up to midnight (not that I'm bitter) trying out a new recipe, Chocolate Mexican Wedding Cookies. They taste great, but are more work than I like.
Not that it affected my baking, but my microwave appears to have gone kaplooey last night. Let's see how long it takes for the apartment complex to replace it. It is one of those things you can live without, but who boils water on the stove anymore?
sdwolfpup tagged me for a meme. Apparently she hates me now. :p This is what I'm suppose to do:
You start with "6 weird habits/things about yourself" and people who get tagged need to write about their 6 weird habits/things as well as include these instructions. In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names.
1) I still use my baby spoons. I like taking small bites of ice cream, pudding, etc and they are the perfect size. I don't think they are intended for long term use since the silver has worn off one. Yeah, I can only imagine what that is doing to vital organs.
2) I have to wear a watch when I go out because I *have* to know what time it is. If I don't wear one I feel naked. And I have at least one clock in every room of my apartment. I don't know why I am so obsessed with time.
3) When I eat M&M's I have to see what color they are before I put them in my mouth. I also have a habit of sucking on them. They do melt in your mouth adn not in your hand!
4) This is stretching it, but I can wallk out of the room while 'Star Wars' is on and before coming back into the room know exactly where the film will be at. It's like I have an internal clock set to the movie.
As for tagging folks, oh, go tag yourself.
