Remember how I said I wasn’t gonna see fireworks? My neighbors fixed that. I’m not normally a fan of people taking fireworks into their own hands but I must admit the display around my house all evening has been impressive and none of them are anywhere near my driveway and/or car so it’s all good in the ‘hood. Literally. My cats, though? Not fans. Poor kids.
I need to reply to things but I probably won’t get the chance until tomorrow. I’ve had a crappy Internet connection all weekend and it takes forever for things to load and forms to post. Bless the T1 at the office. I kiss its wires.
It was a pretty good day and I actually accomplished a few things. Go me. Business cards are designed and ordered. Thanks to everyone who helped with that! Website redesign has made progress and I wrote out my new organization so I may begin implementing that as soon as I have graphics in hand.
Then I met M at the mall and we saw The Devil Wears Prada. Verdict: Liked it. In fact, I liked it much more than I anticipated. ‘Course I had some REALLY low expectations for it so it wasn’t hard for it to rise above those. I still hate the trailer for it and hope no movie ever tries that again. Ever. The movie itself was funny and touching and a good time. Plus all the pretty clothes and shoes and accessories didn’t hurt.
What else? I find the conversations about the VM writing staff changes interesting even if I don’t quite get the strong feelings about it. I think that must come from being one of those who didn’t actually hate this past season? I always had a vision of the VM writing staff that was more male than female so I don’t see how that’ll change anything. I’d like to see more discussion about things that the new guys have actually written and how that points at what they’ll bring to the staff. Of course, I also don’t have any problems with the so-called male writing of Veronica and/or the amount of sexual jokes/references made on the show. Again, I feel like the show has been full of those since the very beginning and, since I am a female who makes crude sexual jokes/references all the time, I don’t personally ever think a female should be expected not to just because she’s, uh, a female. But I’ve gotten distracted and I forget what I was going to say before I got off on the vulgarity commentary.
I have to admit that I find the S3 negativity hard to take at this point. Not the bitterness about S2. That I get. I mean, I don’t get it but everyone has a right to an opinion about the season so I get being bitter about it if it didn’t meet expectations. And I do get why that bitterness would make someone a little wary going into S3. However, actually being negative about S3 and its storylines before it’s even started airing much less filming drives me a little bonkers. If I’m honest, it’s probably because I have no defense to use against it.
Speaking of VM S2, I’ve started working on a post covering my overall impressions and thoughts of it. It’s taking a while because you know how I get when I start talking about VM, plus I’m trying to keep it well organized. I want to have it posted before I leave for Comic Con so look for it sometime within the next two weeks. Deadlines are good for you– well, me.
Speaking of deadlines… I need to get to bed! *looks at clock* God, I am lame.
ETA: This really sucks as a pimp but, if you are a fan of Gilmore Girls and/or Veronica Mars, you should check out starsandmars, a community for the two shows. And post. Because it’s just wrong that I have the majority of the posts in a community that I didn’t create and don’t mod.
