Topic: Eurotrash

Never never never go to the shops and spend a HUNDRED SQUIDS on food on a day where you're dizzy and your teeth ache from lack of sleep. You will wake up the next morning and cringe (or shout 'oh fuck!' in my case) every time you open a bulging heaving cupboard and watch all types of ridiculous inedible crap tumble out on top of you.
Worst buy: a new sauce that combines Soy with Sambal Oelek. Just because they can. Sigh.

PS: managed five hours sleep. Go me. < end sarcastic >

Turn Off TV Week ~ I'm spending a week living an imaginary life as a couch potato, to see if it's any more fulfilling.

Daily Selection: I might have watched ~

1. 8pm, BBC2, Happy Birthday BBC2 ~ a three hour celebration of 40 years of BBC2, with clips from BBC2 classics such as 'The Likely Lads', 'I, Claudius', 'The Borgias', 'Little Britain', and 'The Office'. Arrgh, I really want to see 'I ,Claudius' again, adn I remember being too young to get all the sex references in 'The Borgias', but knowing they were there somewhere - all those half remembered worthy dramas from my ancient youth in the late seventies are proving worth a retelling. Although I could do without another bloody outing from 'The Office', which I'm sick of, Beeb 2 was amazing before it went all Permo Time Team docu on us. This would even beat out 'A Life of Grime' on Beeb 1, which seems, from friends' comments, to be entirely set outside my flat in E3. Aargh. I seriously am tempted by this.
2. 9pm, C5, CSI ~ the team is duped by a hoax electrocution at a casino, distracting their attention from the theft of antiquities. Gadzoinks, this is actually the only programme I do watch on teev. And, with the slow demise of C4, Five is increasingly my favourite channel. Aaargh, etc, to a repetitive degree. If I don't watch it, I'll only end up spending 136 hours next week, abortively trying to download it.
3. 11.55pm, C5, Angel ~ Fred gets infested by evil bugs. I'd stay up late and watch this old ep just to see the really revoltingly irritating Fred cop it. Angel's about twelvety-two series behind in the UK, and it gets aired at fucking stupid times of the night. I tend to wait to buy the video and watch it then, or download wonder about episodes if the storyline gets notoriously good while it's airing Stateside. My god, that reminds me, the latest ep aired in America on 14th April, which means it's had time to get ripped and put on the web. What an intriguingly theoretical thing to ponder (rushes off).
Verdict: That's actually tempting. Well, the first two are. I might begin to regret this exercise.

Speaking of downloading eps - erm, wondering about eps - snag for yourself the four episodes of Wonderfalls that aired over here. It's a series by Tim Minear - one of the Buffy, Angel, Firefly cabal. Funny, quirky, engaging stuff.

On a heavier note, I, too, am suffering from Sleep Deprivation. This weekend in Kentucky ran me ragged and even though I was home before the sun went down I somehow managed to not get a wink of sleep and am now sitting in my office contemplating if I should smoke a cigarette. Normally, it's a no-brainer but while I was gone someone washed my ashtray and it's sparkling on my desk. I can see my reflection where once it was nothing but ground in ash and charred tobacco. It looks really art deco and I'd hate to spoil it.

Yay, you're back! No more blog posts where I have no idea what the place names signify. :D
Thanks for the tip about Wonderfalls - I'll wonder about the full series, directly. I liked Minear's work on Buffy, but less his eps on Angel and Firefly, weirdly.

Never speak ill of the Firefly - the greatest show to grace our screens in... in... well a long damned time, that's for sure.

Angel is being cancelled this year, too. Sorry to say. It was not my favorite anyway, but there are some high point episodes here and there.

It took me three episodes to begin to give a damn about Firefly, but by the end of the part of the series that aired, I was utterly addicted. and in love with Nathan Fillion, but we'll not mention that.
I have the unaired episodes on my proper computer, back in East London, but as my graphics card bust way back in July 2003, and - despite knowing about a gazillion geeks - I can't get a single fucking person to help explain to me how to replace the damn thing, I can't watch them.

Noooooo, it was way way way better than Buffy.
