Finally, Procrastination Pays Off

I booked my flight for Dragon*Con this evening. I had chosen my flight to Atlanta over a week ago, but the return flight proved to be tricky. Well, tricky in the sense that if I wanted a direct flight I had to leave late in the evening or take an earlier flight with a layover. The direct return flight I wanted would have increased my ticket price by about $150. :( So tonight I decided that before prices jump up on me I had to pick the lesser pain in the ass of my two options. And guess what I discovered? The flight I wanted dropped in price by $150. Wheeee!!!

In other exciting news, tonights Project Runway. At least the hype was not totally unfounded, but did anyone not think it was Keith? The thing that shocked me was that he seemed to be breaking rules right and left. What was he thinking? You're being filmed stupid!

Not only did I like Angela's outfit, I'd wear it. Unfortunately, I expect she'll make a return to fru-fru next week.

The writing on this show confounds me. I actually think they did a good job of dealing with Probie's experimenting with his sexuality. Poor guy is just looking for love and has nothing but failure in his search thus far. He found a guy who he thought was nice and who showed him some affection and he decided to see where it would go. Kudos to the Chief for making the guys listen to the rest of his story....But then we have Franco's girlfriend's brother and that somewhat odd storyline (don't even get me started on him just ditching his daughter). From what I saw last night I have a very bad feeling as to where they may be going with brother.

The thing that really hit me though didn't do so until about an hour after I finished watching the ep and the preview for next week. Tommy's father wants a male heir produced. Johnny thinks the new baby may help shut their father up and help fill the void left by Conner's death. Most disturbingly Janet wants to replace the child she has lost. Tommy may not be able to publicly show his emotions, but he's grieving for his son's too short life and realizing that he cannot be replaced. He seems to be the only one who gets that. For a moment it struck me that Tommy may be the healthiest member of that family. Too bad the writers tainted that revelation by the it-looked-like rape of Janet a few weeks ago.

Joining in with others who have had a less than stellar work week - the new boss continues to be great, but the rest of the day sucked. Seriously, I think it would be easier to count the number of people who didn't have a question or problem to be solved today.
