Thursday - Sunny California  
Apparently, Mother Nature is messing with our minds. Yesterday when I returned from vacation road trip it was ghastly overcast and raining, and this morning I wake up and there's bright sunshine in my eyes! Not a single cloud in the sky. Odd, this weather is, however it's a great change from the rainy days we've been having here lately. Thankfully, it'll give our grass outside a chance to continue it's green shine instead of drowning it into a backyard lake.

Last night was a brand new Criminal Minds, and I am continuously awed at the impressive plotlines and twists this show has to offer.

Criminal Minds, "Machismo"

The BAU's case this time was of a Mexican murderer/rapist that had killed an elderly woman inside her own home in a Mexico town. Keeping in the authentic realism traditions of the Day of the Dead and the family values their culture has, this episode focused on the topic of serial killers in Mexico and the shaming of ones family; paralleling to Hotch's conflictions with his work and his family, as witnessed in the beginning. Called to, assumingly, prove the serial killings are false and a hoax, the BAU team try to profile the killing and possibly figure out when the next one might hit. Leading them into mysteries and frightening revelations.

My favorite part was, of course, the ending with the murderer's rape victims (the daughters of the elderly women he was killing) committed sweet cold revenge themselves. Another favorite moment was Elle Greenaway speaking Spanish, and Penelope Garcia explaining via telephone that she took French, not Spanish, and that her last name was in connection with her stepfather. Hee! Oh, and Reid attempting to speak Spanish yet doing it quite Americanly (without the proper accent or fluency).

I also read TVGuide's article of what is to be coming up for the season finale --- no spoilers as to the plot, but what they are doing in preparation for season two. It's going to be a doozy of a finale, as it'll leave the viewing audience to figure out the mystery until the second season premiere.

Oh, and GIP. Simon/River are love, like whoa.

I know! It's sunny! I'm shocked and amazed and using too many exclamation points!

I'm just hoping it stays this way. I need to do spring cleaning this weekend and I can't do that with rain and thunder roaring overhead.

Hee, you're too cute. ;D

It's been very rainy here as well. As always, the smell is nice, but I hate the wetness and how it makes my hair frizzy. Did you see that episode of 'Friends' where Monica's hair swelled from the moisture on vacation? Hee.

And I've never heard of the show you were reviewing. Sounds very interesting. I like reading your point of view on things.

Ha! I remember that episode; Monica looked ridiculously funny. Fortunately my hair doesn't frizz at all during rainy-season, it just makes it wavier.

Criminal Minds is an amazing show about criminal profilers, and subject I am highly intrigued about. Much like dance, I am very interested in criminology.

You're so lucky. I wind up looking like a mothball. I hate my hair.

Very interesting... So how is dancing going for you these days?

Incredibly well, as a matter of fact! Although there was a slight inconvenience and confusion concerning our actual performing dates, which hopefully get settled soon before nearing the end of the semester. Otherwise, everything is of the good (I have the routine seered into my brain right about now, because I've been not only practicing during class but at home too; I'm just ready to dance on the stage).
