First of all, happy birthday to all my August birthday flisters. I hope you all have had or will have awesome birthdays. Please don't take offense if I don't name you personally. I am not online every day so I feel like a nice big shout out is fairest :)

Onto other stuff...

I have one episode of Farscape left and then the Peacekeeper Wars. You know, I really didn't like this show much in its first season and season 2 was hit or miss for me. By now, though, with the final storyarc, I am really enjoying it. That may be because I am drawn to plots that have a political bent, though. I love politics in fiction. I'm sad it's ending with it having gotten so good. I'll post my thoughts on the episodes soon.

For whatever reason, I am very excited about the new season of Smallville. But where are all you Smallville fans? I have no one to talk Smallville with!

My SG-1 muse has been stirring a bit so I might actually get something written. That would be nice. And I might do some quiet reading. Just pick a couple of fics on my list and start going very slowly. Maybe a little meta if the mood strikes. But I'm in quiet fandom mode and I'm not feeling overly participatory right now. It's nice. It's like leisurely fandom. I just don't have the energy to be 100% right now.

I'm probably going to give SPN a try come the fall. I loved Season 1 and I was hit and miss with Season 2. The casting spoilers don't bug me and I'm taking a wait and see attitude. But I think SPN is going to be one of my casual viewing shows.

I've been thinking a lot on my original novel and that is actually where my energies are focused right now (aside from the RL crap). I've made some breakthroughs, but I'm still having inadequacy issues. Got to fix that.

I haven't been on LJ since I think Sunday and no way can I keep up with my flist. If something important has happened, please tell! I just needed a break for a few days. RL is sucking bad right now and instead of venting here, I just needed to be away. Things are still bad so I might be a bit sporadic. Just an FYI.

Carry on :)

Thanks. We'll see. I just have't had the stamina for my longer stuff but I want to finish it some time.

Yay Smallville! Yeah, I know I have a couple. I just really want to get into some discussion some times about the show. I love it so much. It's often poorly written and cheesy, but that doesn't seem to stop me!

Just start convo, I'll be all over it! *grins* We could just have a Smallville rewatch and start from the beginning to have our discussions... ;)

Aw...yay for the finales of Farscape. I agree with you on s1 and 2, but The Peacekeeper Wars was just amazing! Yeah, and I need to catch up on SPN too:)

I'm behind on SPN. I saw like half od S2. Supposedly, I aw all the bad eps and missed the good stuff. So we'll see.

So the PKW were good? I hope so. After the finale, it's all I have left!

I wasn't able to get to a computer for most of this vacation - argh! My FIL doesn't have one. can you believe that? And by the time I got to my mothers home, it was too late. I didnt' think you'd want to trek out to Western MA. I'm sorry I missed you!

But more than anything, taking a break from LJ/computer online stuff is really relaxing, and lowers stress amazingly. (depending on how often one is on a computer).

After I get home on Monday I'll be back online but I'm reducing my presence more than I have.

And I hope RL isn't beating you down too much. :-(

I'm sorry I didn't get back to you. I kept meaning to and it got so crazy.

LJ breaks are nice. I'm never 100% off the computer because there are things I always have to do, but a break here and there really is great. I'm just a little erratic.

I hope you had a nice vacation :)

sg1_debrief is your friend. And yay for stirring muses! You want to write more fic, yessssss...
Working for the Mandroid: unbreakablemoonshayde on August 26th, 2007 12:57 pm (UTC)
The debrief is always my friend. But I actually have a list I've kept of fics I want to read and I'll slowly be going through them.

And I'm not sure I am happy about the muses stirring. My gen novels take months to write and they totally take over my brain. And it's not like I can randomly babble about what is going on in my head to people. So I've been avoiding them for a while. I'm just not sure how long I can. Heh.
