Baby look at that clock, why can't it be wrong?

(Yes. It is my new life's mission to have clever lyrics for post titles whenever possible. I started keeping a list in a notebook and everything.)

In a related note, I've started randomly listening to my CDs again. They've been largely ignored ever since the Sansa arrived, because I am adamant about only having really good songs on it at all times, as well as having a variety of artists, which bars the idea of uploading full albums. Since I don't put them on my computer either - waste of space to store songs in two places! - that means I just...don't listen to them. :'(

Right now, I very much like the fact that I finally found Disc Three from my [permanently borrowed from Dad] Stevie Nicks "Enchanted" collection, and am busy remembering how I love every single track on it. Disc One not so much, and only a handful from Disc Two, but Disc Three and I are best buddies. Free Fallin', It's Late, Twisted, Sweet Girl, piano version of Rhiannon, Gold, Blue Lamp, Gold and Braid...and, yeah, everything.

If I have one complaint, it's that this Discman is 10 years old and apparently predates the idea of skip protection. And lacks a pause button. But we can't have everything, now, can we?

I have yet to watch anything remotely resembling Monday night's TV. I was pretty blown away by the end of last week, and thus chose to devote my spare time/brainpower to competitive bloodlust & trash-talking, discovering music all over the place, and becoming worrisomely addicted to the Key Quest board game on Neopets instead.

But somewhere in there, I did finally write about last week's TV.

CSI, 9x16, "Turn Turn Turn,"
Let's see. Extremely Nick-centric + excellent young female guest star = epic win of the sort not seen since "Gum Drops."

Bottom line: the first episode since Grissom's departure to actually outrank any of the Grissom-inclusive episodes on my personal scorecard. Show, you are good.

Numb3rs, 5x17, "First Law"

--------
Cold Case, 6x16, "Jackals"
"Everyone's a criminal. At least the Jackals are up front about it." Well, that's a healthy attitude to have/good reason to ingratiate yourself into the violent motorcyle gang, Sarah. *rolls eyes*

Writer's Block: Passing Time

When you're stuck in a boring class or meeting, what's your favorite way to keep yourself entertained (or at least from falling asleep)?
I have a lot of experience with boring classes & entertaining myself in them - I think it's why I have such fond memories of sitting in my upper-level theology course, actually, when otherwise it pretty much was a thing from hell - so I clearly need to answer this one! For the past couple of years my default outlet has been obvious...I start working on episode-related posts. :P

P.S. Pay attention to these campaign posters. These are the only people left in the tournament that I actually like*. DON'T TAKE THEM AWAY FROM ME.
     

I do not have a type shut up.

(* Well, there's also Barney, but odds are on him to win it all, and he's been creaming everybody, which is really boring. That said, I am so not okay with a world in which Jon Stewart outlasts Barney Stinson. And yes, I know House is still in it too, but he's up against Booth. Booth is hotly protective of his partner and has an adorable kid, while House wanders around stealing food from people and leering lecherously at Cuddy. There is no real choice here.)


P.P.S. Veronica Mars is the only woman left. Do you really, really, really want to choose Spike over female representation? That's right, I'm even willing to advocate quotas. This sort of crisis calls for it.
