False gods are just as good, y'know.

Okay, I'm primarily on twitter and tumblr now, and I login to check my memories (in a doc/rose mood this week), and my lj account tabs/info are in Japanese. This...I did not choose, and can't seem to undo. I know I elected not to renew my paid membership, but that doesn't close out till the 30th, and this is a strange reaction to that choice. I hope this is just a bug and not something strange with my laptop; the scans so far are clean, so I'm thinking it's the latter...

Well, it's in Japanese on my phone now too, so something is certainly up, as it was in English last night.

Pre-storm Fringe catch-up today...

[Fringe 5x04]

OH MY FUCKING GOD THEY KILLED THEIR DAUGHTER /end tumblr-esque capslock explosion (more found at tumblr shortly if the power's still on)


I knew something major happened, figured someone died, thought maybe Walter. Then saw generic Etta graphic on deviantart group and thought maybe it was her. But, c'mon, their daughter was already kidnapped, they were reunited in the future, they wouldn't kill her off so quickly. And then there was so much of a Broyles focus in this ep, and he was being quite awesome and heroic, so I thought well, as The Dove, he would be sacrificed to save them. But then I remembered Georgina Haig was only signed on for like, five, eps. And then I watched her interactions with her family much more closely. There was too much promise of the future there, and the mother-daughter scene with the bullet was just too wonderful. (I kinda wanted her to tell Etta the story of the bullet, and then kinda was glad she didn't: "Yeah, your grandfather shot me through the head because I was giving off enough Cortexi-energy to destroy two universes. I was actually dead for a few minutes. Oh, and I was pregnant with you all the while. May be why you're so special." Bit awkward that.) Anyway, I love watching Anna Torv emote. She's just so very perfect.

So, obviously I am still crying here. Peter just hysterical, Olivia pulling back, completely overcome while gripping that bullet, Walter knowing EXACTLY how they both feel... ;_;

I KNOW that all of this will be erased - that's obviously what the whole 'restore' thing means - but jesus christ THEY KILLED THEIR BABY GIRL. Olivia already felt so terrible the first time she lost her child, god, feeling it was her fault - further crying here - and now...now... 

Well, I'm outta words. But man, this is a great season. Just gonna try not to cry as I read recaps and responses (an uphill battle, surely).

Probably already missed the Fringe renewal dance party, but seriously this is great news! I have great faith that Community will be renewed and hold out hope (with Bill Lawrence) that Cougar Town will be as well. Seriously, those three coming back next year would make this the best ending to a nail-biting, ratings-obsessed, depressed-at-the-state-of-the-tv-watching-public television season I've been living through since Community was taken off the air. They are three of the absolute best shows on air right now and I really want to see them finish properly. And now Fringe is getting its chance!!

So on Monday I got a disassembled entertainment center off Craigslist. Finding the locale was easy (compared to the last time I used Craigslist and got lost for ninety minutes) and I learned I could fold down the backseat of our Focus to make more room. When we got it home I put the top on the bottom, proceeded to break through one of the pieces when another part flipped, and lose the bottom part of the door attachment (unrealized till it was fully assembled). This thing was big, 6' x 5' and obviously heavy, and by the end rather unsteady. It is now a bookcase. But during the assembly my LG Chocolate Touch was in my back pocket and I fell or sat down hard at some point and cracked the screen. D:

The touch part still worked, my mp3 player and ringer worked, my voice dial worked, but I couldn't see anything. This was rather upsetting, though I was a bit numb by the end since the entertainment center had also been a disappointment. And I was quite tired by that point, too. (It was 12:30 am, we'd got it at 9pm.) I looked up how to fix it, which was a common enough problem for there to be a how-to with pics and the replacement screen was only $10 on ebay. But if it didn't work I needed to find out what my options with Verizon were. Apparently, they are very few.

My mom and bro lost their AT&T phones and got go phones for a bit, but Verizon won't do that. They suggest buying a whole new phone or adding a line =| Dicks. I have an upgrade in about a month and a half but that's no help. So I waited for the part.

Fixed the screen yesterday but then the ringer/mp3 player/external speaker wouldn't work. Vibrate's fine but I at least need a working, audible alarm clock. Realized that one screw was in the wrong hole, but couldn't get it out. Without the screw on the outside the speaker conductor wasn't meeting its complementary part and the signal/current wasn't making it though. And I had stripped the tiny, tiny, tiny screw. So. Went to Home Depot, got a precision screwdriver set, but they didn't have any tiny, tiny, tiny screws. Sent me to Radio Shack. Again, no dice. Didn't have time to go out and get a glasses repair kit, so waited till this afternoon to resume attempting repairs.

Finally got the screw out with some toenail clippers after trying to superglue it to my tiny screwdriver wouldn't work. I had realized I could just use some screws from old phones lying about and replaced the stripped screw. And success! It took me several hours over two days and too much driving and searching the house for tools, but I've got a functional phone again. I'm getting the insurance next time (to be fair, I've been really good with phones before, but this was too frustrating. Glad to know I can repair electronics sometimes, though.) Definitely not putting together another entertainment center without instructions and placing my phone far, far away.

So that's what I've been up to :)

I did pay for this so I should use it, huh?

Been working ten days straight and it was as horrible as could be expected, especially having to be their at 5:30 in the morning. Ugh. (Not all the days, thankfully.) Everybody at work is sick, two of my brothers have been sick, so I am naturally a little sick now too. Sigh.

Have watched the first and last ep of Sherlock (Reichenbach first 'cause The Fall is a fave SH moment of mine) and will eventually get through the rest. I know most everything due to tumblr and have little interest in actively watching Scandal 'cause dominatrix Irene has so little pull (and is incredibly off-putting, Moffit) so will side-eye that one, probably. Has naked!Sherlock in a sheet, though, so a definite plus there. :shrugs:

Quite enjoyed A Game of Shadows, but that's a given with RDJ and Jude Law, so.

Behind on Fringe, so thank god for tumblr savior. Need a DVR post-haste so I can season-pass it, Cougar Town, and my beloved Community.

March 15th, bitches! Get your special drink and blanket forts ready!

Winter has ceased to exist in south-eastern PA. A bit sad to lose it, no matter how annoying shoveling has been in the past. But we only had 4 in total this year =/

That is all.

This woman built her own portable TARDIS!

Quite a funny, amazing video. I've only ever done various household and auto repairs, so the amount of effort and dedication she put in is astounding. I did make a light box once, so there's that (-_-;;)

Also, obligated to remind everyone it's Fringe Friday!
