So that external hard drive thing. It is covered under warranty which means I can have it repaired or replaced for free. What they can't do for me is recover my data. So I dropped it off with this guy downtown, and he's working on it. Last I heard from him, he's optimistic, but doesn't want to make any promises. So we'll see how that goes. I'm praying to all the gods he can help me... of course, if he can, that's another two hundred, three hundred bucks in the can.
My cold is finally 99% done. I haven't used a kleenex in days and it doesn't feel like I'm being stabbed in the throat with a red-hot knife every time I swallow. Thank the gods.
I think I may be convincing myself to get out of this sulk or whatever I'm in and try to get back to normalish life. You know. Answer phone calls, look at my email inbox, stop avoiding my friends. Look at that RP I'm supposed to be running. Anything not lying in bed watching television all the time. ...Maybe.
The television's been good, though. My new favorite show is White Collar, and my new imaginary boyfriend is Neal Caffrey, played by Matt Bomer. Thank you very much we_love_dick for introducing me to this man and this show. See, Matt Bomer is the fan-favorite to play Dick Grayson, should the gods ever favor us with a live-action Nightwing television show or movie. I checked out clips of Matt in The Guiding Light (lol he got his start in soap operas) and Chuck (I should get around to that show at some point, probably), and that combined with recs from fans and the fact that my other imaginary boyfriend Mark Sheppard (Crowley is rivaling Romo Lampkin as the Mark Sheppard character I would most like to do dirty dirty things to) is in the first episode was all I needed to watch it. And then I couldn't stop. The show is well-written, the characters are fabulous, the chemistry between the characters is beyond fabulous, and Neal Caffrey defines fabulous. Omg I'm so madly in love with him. And yes, Matt Bomer is Dick Grayson from head to toe, and the fact the Neal is so very very similar to him makes White Collar the Dick Grayson Show. OMG WATCH THIS SHOW GUYZ.
I've also caught up with Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. I needed to see my man Russell outplay everyone in the damn game like he did last season. AND HE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. It's down to the last few cast members and every single one of them knows he's a snake and he still manages to manipulate everyone to vote off whichever person he wants, HOW DOES HE DO IT?? I watched this week's episode today and frightened Dar by yelling "OH SNAP!!" in the kitchen when Danielle got voted off. HOW DID HE DO THAT?! THE MAN IS BLACK MAGIC!! <3 <3 <3 Russell so much. I want the evil little bastard to win so bad, but I suspect the same thing will happen as happened last season... when it comes down to the jury they'll vote against him just because they hate the bastard so much.
Saw Iron Man 2 last night. I found it exceedingly enjoyable, and look forward to seeing it again. If only because I was laughing too hard after some of the lines to hear what was said next. RDJ, Ilu.
Finally, my Quote of the Week: "I'm not a couple of black men, there's just really nothing I can do about that."
...That is all.
