Television may start getting better! - Devil on Your Shoulder
Go on. You know you want to.
Television may start getting better!

At least the BBC America part of television.  As long as she stays away from FOX, she may have a shot.

Also, my birthday is coming up in a few months.  Here are some gift ideas.

So, not only do I stil have a job, my job still has snow days.  Last Monday, work was closed due to crappy highway snow plowing abilities more than the actual snow.  Still, any opportunity for lie in, a hearty breakfast, a nap, and reading a good book is welcome. 

I'm finishing the most recent in The Culture series by Iain M. Banks.  I will be very sad when I've finished because this is an amazing series.  It can be appreciated as very well-written Space Opera or as one long philosophical debate.  It's yummy!  What's interesting is that the author is not much of a "foodie".  Over the course of eight books dealing with a future utopian society spanning hundreds of years and different cultures, he's mentioned what people are eating about three times.  With all the other advancements made (self-aware computer Minds, no money needed, travel through the galaxy), one would think that a really great meal would figure in once in a while.  I should write the author and ask about that.

This post has nothing to do with Paul Rudd or Seth Rogen but I just couldn't resist this photo for an icon.

Huh. When I clicked on the site of birthday ideas, I discover that the internet police here at the office have blocked it for being "Tasteless and Offensive". Imagine that!

We're going to see Watchmen this weekend, yes? Yay for Billy Crudup's blue dangly bits.

It's just Cracked.com. They use naughty words.

I have to say -- my library needs a copy of "Mantrapping". The scary thing? I can think of an ex who probably has most of the collection (I was young and stupid once ;)).

And interesting news about Julie Gardner; it sounds like LA will be her new home shortly (at least for extended periods of time). It can only bode well for BBC America.
