Clear eyes, full hearts...

Alright here's the deal - are you watching Friday Night Lights? This week's episode made me laugh, cry, gasp, whimper, and stand up and cheer. It is the best new show on television this season, and quite possibly the best show period. Now look, I know that just because a show is well written, incredibly acted, and beautifully shot does not mean that the subject matter is for you. But have you tried it? Yes it's football in small town Texas, but it's about everything. The teenagers talk like teenagers, not overly self aware 20 somethings. The coach's marriage is between two equals who obviously love each other despite being frustrated sometimes. And the boys are hot. (What, I still play in the shallow end of the pool too.) So here's the deal, you need to give it a try. No really. I'm betting you'll fall in love.


I've been having one of those weeks where the world fills in. You know, instead of 'here be monsters' there's actually a map? Downtown San Jose is suddenly a whole place, and my tattoo studio is only a few blocks from the Rep theatre. I have a better sense of El Camino all the way from downtown Mountain View to the Lawrence Expressway. I feel very smart.


I am now less hobbly after the race. My right knee still catches every once in a while, but chiro last night certainly helped. I went for a 30 minute walk today, and it felt good. Yay!


I did not wear a costume yesterday. Partially I realized that no one in the office would be dressed up (hell Halloween never got mentioned at all) and I didn't feel like being that different, and partially I realized that getting into costume would have required me to get up earlier. Sorry to have disappointed anyone.

In general the new temp gig is okay - but not my favorite thing. 8am has gotten easier, but at the end of the day stage managing someone's life just isn't as rewarding as stage managing a show. It pays better, but no one applauds.


I am bad at birthdays. So many people on my flist have October birthdays and here's what happens in my world. I see entries where others have remembered to wish you a happy birthday and I think 'oh it's < your name here >'s birthday? That is so cool - I hope they have a fabulous day.' And you stay in my thoughts all day, but I don't ever type anything. Just FYI.


Um, I'm sure there were other things I was going to talk about, but that's all that's coming out of my brain right now. Oh, and I totally haven't started nanowrimo at all. Instead I'm updating here. I wonder if there's a way to make this part of the story?

I LOVE FNL and have been begging my flist to watch. It's so damn good.

It so is. I've seen you talking about it in your journal too, I figured I'd add my voice. Hopefully, we'll convince a few people to try it between us.

I hope so. I've been pimping it to everyone and it looks like more people are tuning in. I even urged my hair stylist today to watch.

As for the birthday thing? I'm totally with you on that... I generally only remember someone's birthday when I see other's making posts about it.

I find it hard to remember witchman's birthday!

heh. Soon, EVERYONE ON MY FLIST WILL WATCH FNL. I WILL NOT STOP. Thankfully I have you to help me!

FNL will rule them all! I've been meaning to write about it for weeks, your post and AL's helped me finally get off my butt and do it. Slowly, we will convert the world.

Can you recommend a good chiro in the area? (I'll give you extra points if they're located on El Cam between Mountain View and Lawrence...heehee.) My back is still fucky from my injury last Christmas and I want someone to come along and chiro the pain outta there.

I can recommend my chiro, who I really like. The cool thing is she is trained in both chiro and physical therapy so she can adjust to what will best help you. She's in cupertino (sadly outside the bonus zone). Her name is Petra Eggert; phone# 408-530-0005; 21020 Homestead Rd, Suite 2, Cupertino 95014.

You might also want to call Jen at TW, she probably has recommendations for actors she could share.

Friday Night Lights is great, isn't it? And there are wonderful recaps over at FandomTalk if, you know, you like that sort of thing.

Congrats on the half marathon! Well done.

As for the birthday thing, I'll let it go this time.... ;)

Yay for more people watching FNL! And I'll have to check out the site, fandom fun is always good.

< cringes in embarrassment > I know I'm awful about birthdays, that's why I sent out a general mea culpa. But I hope your day was fabulously wonderful.

And now I'm just going to stare at your icon for a while.
