3 down, 10 to go

It's been overcast and/or raining all day.  Very dull.  Clearly, the answer was to spend the afternoon wrapped up in a blanket, watching Torchwood.  (in my defense?  I went to bed at a reasonable hour last night and got up at 7:30! And worked!  And came back did dishes and laundry and picked up my room for the rest of the morning!  What homework?)

2x01, "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang"
*blinks in astonishment* ...the hell?  When did I stop hating Owen?

2x02, "Sleeper"
Or, "Hey, that was quite the dull waste of time there, wasn't it?"

2x03, "To The Last Man"
And then Torchwood unexpectedly made me cry.

I think this show is...*shudders* growing on me.  But not in a way where I'm ready to recommend it to anyone yet.  Far from it.  If you don't currently watch it, especially if you've made a conscious decision not to watch it, I heartily applaud your sense of morals and conviction and encourage you maintain this disinterest and/or dislike.  Because that's the overwhelmingly correct attitude to have. 



Saturdays with Team Torchwood

Not quite the 'Tuesdays with Morrie' sound I was hoping for, but nevertheless a pretty good description of how I'm taking in this show.

2x04, "Meat"
Hey, no fair playing on my love of animals to make me like this one!

2x05, "Adam"

First reaction: Oh, thank heaven it's not THAT Adam. Because in retrospect, I really hated "The Long Game" and I was worried that we might somehow be tying back to that. But nope, we're good.

P.S. So, I've been drinking my Diet Pepsi, and at first I was just so happy to have dark carbonation back in my life that I didn't notice, but on the second bottle I started thinking that it had a kind of weird taste. I kept thinking maybe it was expired (nope) or maybe it was somehow an aftertaste combination based on what I was eating...and then I was absent-mindedly turning it around on the desk when my eyes fell on the nutrition label. 100 calories per serving/300 calories per bottle.

Me: *eyes bug out of head* F#()&%(*#%&(*#%!!!

I somehow managed to not notice I was buying regular Pepsi. FAAAAAAAIL. And ew! Now I'm stuck with 4 more bottles of the stuff. It's better than no pop at all and so I hoard it jealously, unwilling to give it away. But I still think that means I have to go back to the store tomorrow, because this? Does not taste good. And oh, how I HATE wasting calories on drinks...
