falling behind!

I’m falling behind on my Recent Reads and film commentary stuff. Suffice it to say we just got to s3e9 of Person of Interest and they could probably hear our scream of agony in Australia. And I’m not speaking in the royal We, I’m speaking of me and Ted both shrieking “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” at the television.

A friend of mine says she’d read spoilers and that she will not go beyond s3e8. This is not necessarily a bad solution. #heartbreak

I went to see Jupiter Ascending a second time, and liked it much more the second time when I could appreciate it for what it was instead of what I wanted it to be.

I read Matt Fraction’s run on Uncanny X-Men, which I largely enjoyed, and STRONG FEMALE PROTAGONIST, which I’d read the first couple chapters of online and THOROUGHLY enjoyed, and then today I accidentally read the first of Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork books and was forced to buy the other two, which is not the *best* way to get through the TBR shelf. :) (Someone suggested I now move all first-books-in-a-series to the end of my “read all the books i own that are written by people i know” goal for the year queue. This is a good suggestion. :))

This evening I’m wearing a new National Geographic pullover thing. Ted, in some surprise, said, “You have a National Geographic jumper?”

I said, “Oh yeah, I started working for them.”

Ted *immediately* got an expression that indicated that this was not outside his realm of probability, which I thought was pretty great. :) (The jumper is actually something that comes with renewing a NatGeo subscription. :))
