 Wow! Has it really been almost a month since I last posted? I suppose that my journal has been filled with enough whinging over the past few years to account for a lifetime. I just decided to cut back on it, is all.
  • So, yeah, I am still searching for a job. Unfortunately, the two informal offers I had prior to graduation sort of fell through due to circumstances unrelated to me and beyond my control. It happens. I was bummed. I'm getting over it. I just never anticipated that finding a position would be difficult, probably because finding a job as a nurse has been EASY. Employers want you. Like yesterday. But even though there is an expected shortfall of providers in primary care, it doesn't really seem to be the case here at this time. Thus, employers have the luxury of seeking experienced applicants.  Of course, another reason for the difficulty is I have to limit my search to a particular area to fulfill the terms of a scholarship.
  • But I do have an interview next week. We'll see how it goes, though I refuse to get excited again.

  • With the exception of Doctor Who, BBT, Farscape Friday, and my Merlin DVDs, I have been experiencing a prolonged bout of TV apathy. I hate it when that happens. I have yet to watch a single episode of SGU since the hiatus and now I discover my DVR default setting of only keeping 5 episodes unless you specify how many to keep saved. So, the episodes have been automatically deleting once reaching 5. Ack! I remedied that but now I wonder if some of the other shows that show 5 episodes to watch (Chuck, Fringe, and Bones) have also been deleting episodes. Oops. I'm not going to be a happy person when the TV apathy subsides and I've missed loads. I am sure I'll catch SGU again in repeats but I'm not so sure about the others.

  • Some thoughts: Doctor Who is made up of awesome. What more can I say? I cannot wait to see how it all plays out and, oh yeah, I LOVE RORY! Discussion of it has started creeping in to the Farscape Friday chat. BBT: I don't think I have ever laughed so hard as I did at Raj in the coffee shop attempting to chat up a woman after taking the medication for his social anxiety. It ranks right up there with Sheldon's drunken speech! Farscape: We are up to "Nerve" and "The Hidden Memory". (WIN!!) Scorpy!!  Crichton in leather pants has finally made an appearance. I love John and Aeryn so much my heart hurts. Even though we are almost to the end of season one, anyone wanting to join in the discussion is welcome at any time. Merlin: Help me!! I am overcome daily by the pictures coming out of filming. The boyz love and the spoilery has taken over my brain!  I was all kinds of excited to learn of this series 4 guest star.

  • My laugh to tears moment of this day was brought to me (and now to you) by the lovely [ profile] lolafeist  "honey badger don't care" I should take few lessons!

 Farscape Friday was great fun and we managed to not make it a total squee fest even if that is what we sometimes do best. [ profile] de23  and [ profile] scarym1 , I had a great time. We should have done this ages ago.

That being said, I am still looking forward to THIS upcoming attire.

And I so need to clean this house instead of oogling gorgeous pics online.

After chatting, I had an opportunity to watch Gwaine .... lovable rapscallion, you! )

Ah, but this scene gives me all sorts of gooey, "Awwwww"  happiness. Boys! (I can be such a sap! Hum...wish it was bigger.)

So, I've had the desire to do a Farscape rewatch off and on for awhile now and when responding to [ profile] de23  and [ profile] scarym1 in a previous posting, I began thinking that it would be great fun to watch it 'together' and then discuss it, especially as [ profile] scarym1  has only seen the first season! We must remedy that!!!  I remember how much fun we all had in those multiperson Friday night Stargate chats we used to have after an episode had aired. Of course, it amazes me now that we all found the time to participate every Friday night, complete with coffee that kept us up chatting for hours and with a seemingly endless supply of thunk-worthy pics that kept us drooling.

Finding the time for chatting would be difficult now but maybe we could all agree to watch an episode  a week to discuss. Or maybe two or three episodes because who can watch just one, sometimes?

Of course, I can't promise to always have thinky thoughts and ♥ "I LOVE John Crichton!!" ♥ may be as thinky as I can get sometimes. But, I'll try to do more than that. Plus, I am sure there are others who have better meta brains than I do.

So, anyone interested in participating in some good Crichton (And Aeryn) Love with me? Seriously, this is one of the BESTEST most BRILLIANT shows of all time and if you've never watched, it would be great fun sharing the greatness with you. But if you've never watched, you must watch the entire first season because it was toward the end of the first season when I became enamored and I think I've heard others say this as well.

I think I am going to go for it starting next Friday. So, first three episodes by then? Too much??

In other news, I got out of my lazy rut today and did some studying and exercising. Must have been the Sun and the forty degree temps.

Snow! Again!?! I think we have met our quota. This whole snowy winter thing is getting a bit ridiculous, even if I am glad that I didn't have to drive to work in it this time. Last Friday was a wee bit treacherous. Heck, my road to work is treacherous on a good day.

So, yeah, I should be studying but I know I am going to be a bit of a slacker until I am actually able to schedule the exam. (I need deadlines, I suppose) All of the necessary paperwork is in but I haven't heard anything as of yet. My plan for this week was to get out of the house and away from fanfic distractions but I'm feeling rather snowed in today and have no desire to even leave the house.

Have I mentioned that I hate winter? The desire to move is always strong this time of year.

So, Fringe and Chuck are back and I finished season two of The Mentalist in my effort to finally get caught up with that show. However, in case you haven't noticed, I haven't been feeling particularly chatty of late. I have nothing of interest to say. (Assuming I ever did).

I blame it on winter inertia

(Which makes me think of the Massive Attack song, Inertia Creeps, even though 'Inertia' in that song has no bearing on how I used the word and listening to it makes me think it could inspire some mind blowing fanfic. Writers?)

And thanks to [ profile] de23  for this bit of fandom fun: Ultimate Fandom Tournament  Choosing was rather fun even if those going head to head didn't always make sense. And it reminded me that I will always vote for John Crichton. ALWAYS!! (Do I envision a Farscape rewatch in my immediate future!?!)

And, of course, I am rewatching Merlin as it is being aired on SyFy. I hope those who weren't obsessed enough to find alternate viewing methods are tuning in as well.....

Have I mentioned that I am enjoying Farscape even more the second time around. I finally took a break from paper writing about 10pm last night to watch a few eps, "Won't get fooled again" and "The Locket". Two great episodes. Seeing all the characters in such different ways was great fun but I never caught one of the best lines from Zhann the first time around, "I'll wear a Freudian slip" ROFL! The Locket just made me cry with all its poignant John/Aeryn goodness.

The new schedule hours were approved though I won't be starting it till the next schedule...4 more weekends from now. I am glad though I'd hoped to start sooner. This weekend is yucky because of dayight saving time. There is nothing worse than seeing 2am twice in one shift!

This concept analysis paper is complex and pulling together information from 20 plus articles is tedious. Good thing my instructor offered to give anyone who needed it more time. Her assignments may be many and over the top time consuming but she is certainly reasonable and understands that most of us have full time jobs and families. I don't know if her class is what I should generally expect or not so next semester I'm only taking one class. (not to mention, cheaper) I should have remembered from nursing school that any schooling pertaining to nursing is unusually "busy" when compared to other programs of study. At least that has been my experience.
