Flack

Agents and detectives and romance everywhere

I just realized that for the first time in my life, a season of American Idol passed by without me knowing so much as the name or the face of one single contestant on it. We're at X Factor levels of familiarity here. So great.

First order of business, I made time today for those episodes of NCIS: LA that people have been telling me about.

Also, you should all be pretty impressed that I lasted until the end of episode 8 before I cracked and hit up a ship tag on Tumblr,[for Mac/Christine moments, spoilers for rest of season here]seeings as I've been desperate to get my Mac/Christine fix from the crossover episode since they first announced the summary. (and WHOOPS, THERE IT IS IN VIDEO FORM for as long as CBS hosts it; .gif form after that) Well now, that just makes me all kinds of stupid happy. Maybe purring in satisfaction.

(fact: I ran across one post yelling 'THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT MAC AND CHRISTINE IS THE WAY I USED TO FEEL ABOUT GRISSOM AND SARA.' Turns out the post was actually about how they're apparently awful with no chemistry and The Worst compared to the ship that should obvs be canon, but the first sentence still sums up all of my feelings about both ships right now)

Along the way I may have gotten visually spoiled for the proposal, which I was already pretty confident would happen (based solely on gut feeling), but am so pleased to see confirmed. Eeeeeeeeh! *kicky little shipper feet*

But now that I've had a spike in shipper insulin and satiated myself on the need to consume this show to the point where I find myself once more plodding patiently through the casework, it's time to give this one a little bit of a break.
