The Staying Up Late Becuase I Don't Want to Face the Reality of Going to Work Tomorrow Edition

If I were to think about how many days are left until Christmas I would probably freak out. If I tell myself, “No one will care if this is late”, I feel much calmer. That applies more to cards then gifts right now since the cards have not yet been started, but, as of Friday night, I pretty much had the gift buying completed. Other than Target, all of my shopping has been done online this year. It’s much less stressful then dealing with the hordes at the stores. And I will forever be grateful to the brilliant folks at Amazon who thought of the Wish List. ;)

And just a tip for any of you who, like me, were under the impression that office supply stores are cheaper. Avery half fold cards at Office Depot are $13.99. And at Target? $7.99. A dollar difference, even two, I could see, but six dollars???

TV viewing was rather limited this weekend. I was out and about much of yesterday (including spending three hours at work filing - joy) and this evening the DVR was tied up recording Tin Man for someone at work who practically begged me to record it for him. So that just leaves Friday TV.

OK, I know she’s a teenager, but Julie is getting on my last nerve. I’m soooo happy that Matt has moved on with Carlotta. And while I had some trepidation as to how that relationship would work, thus far, they’ve been pretty darn cute together.

As soon as Jason asked for the waitress’ assistance in ditching his date, I had a feeling he’d end up going home with her. Still, it was nice to see him meet someone who liked him for him and helped proved it was time to move out of his parent’s house.

The resolution to the worst plot idea ever Landry’s killing of Tyra’s stalker left me conflicted. I don't want to see Landry off the show and I certainly didn’t feel he should be tried as an adult and sent away for murder, but him getting off scott fee, at least by the justice system, didn’t seem realistic to me. His dad, Tyra, the cops, the attorneys, all set it up for him to get off, but it wasn’t just an act of self-defense. I’m sure his conscience, which drove him to confess, won’t let him off the hook, but I still think, at the very least, he should have received probation and community service.

And, as bop_radar, mentioned in her post, what happened to the Landry/Matt friendship? I can understand not talking to him about this before, but once he confessed I would think he might have turned to his supposed best friend for support and advice.

I will love this show forever if Eric lets Riggins move into the garage. He already gave him a sleeping bag, they just need to find a cot for him. ;)

If, in fact, they killed Elizabeth off-screen, it’s a slap in the face to Torri and the fans.

As for the rest of the story, all I can say is it was done before on SG1 (‘Tin Man’) and done much better. Writers, if you are ripping off your parent show it may be time to consider scrapping that fifth season.

If any of you would like to show your appreciation for Katee Sackoff, greycoupon is organizing a charity drive. Details can be found on her LJ HERE.

Question for leather jacket wearers, what do you do with your old leather jackets? I bought a new one yesterday because my old one was in such bad shape I would no longer wear it in public. It's my own fault since I didn't really take proper care of it. I bought cleaner/conditioner this time to (hopefully) avoid that problem. In addition to the exterior not being in good shape, the lining is ripped to hell. I generally drop off old clothes and coats at Goodwill, but I don't think I can do it in this case. On the other hand, throwing it in the trash seems a waste. Any suggestions?
