Stuff

There is a character in Clueless, a really great movie and her response at one point is "stuff", but the way she drawls it, and the expression on her face as she says it has always stuck in my head and when I'm at a loss for something to say, my response is always "stuff".

how the hell do you follow up a post in identity and trilogy arcs that namechecks not one, but two amazing craft books with anything but "stuff"?

So here are my inane, random thoughts for the week.

first off, has anyone out there read the Karen Marie Moning fae series? Seriously, I'm glad I'm reading it now, because if I'd had to wait a year between books, I might have been genuinely annoyed. Love the books, hate the cliffhanger endings to each of them. (Molly, am on the last one, Thrones is next)

Am stupidly excited that Bachelor Pad is starting on Monday. Sad, I know. As a show it pretty much sums up the worst of humanity and I'm still going to watch, because while I gave up on the Bachelor stuff a long time ago, this show has no qualms about what it is, it knows, it's not afraid to investigate the worst of what fame whores will do to stay on Tv and because of that I'm in.

And then I'll cleanse my palate with a little So you think you can dance, because it's on the opposite end of the scale and I'm afraid that when it's over all I'll be left with is Bachelor pad to watch on TV.

Sad, I know. I should probably get out of the house more often. Anyone else stuck in a summer TV rut... especially now that True Blood is letting us down. Maybe this is just a sign that I should be watching less TV and exercising more...

I just can't do the reality/contest shows. I'm apparently missing the gene for that one.

I share the reality TV fetish with Sinead. I like the competition ones that are based on real talent (not amateurs) like SYTYCD and Top Chef and Project Runway... (Vs the ones that crush the hopes of amateurs.)

And I also love me some trash sometimes.

I expect, try as I might, I will not be able to stay away from the spectacular train wreck that will be Bachelor Pad. The lengths that people will go to to stay in the public eye...

no, Eileen, avoid it... and at the same time, because it really does promote the worst in humanity and no show does that better than Bachelor pad...

I'ma worse person for watching it...

But it's lonely here in my Fort of Silence. :-(

I'm with you, Eileen! Never did like all those dating reality shows. I am far away from a summer television rut - I'm heading to bed every night at nine thirty to read these damn Martin books. The fourth one is pissing me off - who the hell are these characters? I don't care about them - just get me back to Jon!
