Kahlan. Facepalm.

I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller...

++ It's kind of hilarious when you get hit on at the most random of places. Yesterday I went to Borders and just went browsing about, didn't spend more than fifteen minutes there, when I was approached by this guy. What I find amusing about this is that he wanted to know what I was doing, and when I told him reading (which I was) he responded with "...really?" Which, I know, reading books in a bookstore? Shocking! That, and I was in the religion section of the store mostly for meta research, and I'm getting hit on by this guy. I don't know, I find that oddly amusing for some reason.

And no, he wasn't my type. Quite frankly if a guy is taken aback that you like reading books for fun then nope, they're definitely not on the list for me.

++ This is the funniest thing I've come across. *brb facepalming and loling*

++ Because how can I not post this? Misha explaining how he named one of his pet turtles via the HIHCon. From a dream he named his turtle Drydraluxlaloud, you guys. Drydraluxlaloud. Just, omg Misha! You are seriously too adorable I cannot stand it. ♥ ♥ ♥

++ I'm really really really excited for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I have watched the teaser trailer several more times and it keeps getting better and better. It still sucks that it's being split into two parts, because the wait between the first half and the second will be overwhelmingly painful, for sure. But the more I keep thinking about it, the sadder I become because then the Harry Potter saga will really truly be over. With no more books and no more movies, it'll be done. And this? Breaks my heart, to be honest. Harry Potter really was a huge influential part of my life, both a reflection of being part of fandom and with my own personal life. It really was something huge for my generation, those who grew up with the books, getting into the universe that J.K. Rowling created. It's continued for years and I don't expect it to go away because of how influential it has become all over the world, but just thinking about how there will no nothing else left coming out from it makes me kind of nostalgic and sadfacing right now.

What I fear though is that after the final movie comes out, we'll then have to fully deal with the plague that is Twilight. I'm sorry, but I really detest a series that advocates young girls and grown women to idealize after such an unhealthy relationship and not differentiating between fantasy and reality. *shudders*

Day 25: "Who is next on my list?"

Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)

Right now all my major shows are on hiatus or it seems like they might be in their last season come this next seasonal run (or that I might consider leaving if things turn to shit...), and it's kind of sad that I don't have enough to watch these days. So I'm definitely looking for other shows to watch and I've had some on a list already that I've been meaning to check out.

Other shows include: Community, which is a new show that I've seen people rave about, Band of Brothers and Jericho and mostly that's because Richard Speight Jr. is in them, and I plan on watching everything he was in for the sake of it, lol. Nevertheless I've heard great things about both shows, so I'll certainly be looking forward to testing them out. I've also been meaning to watch Deadwood, too. Oh, and Merlin, since post-Legend of the Seeker I need to fill that fantasy-based void, you know?

Wow, that's a lot of shows right there. I didn't realize how much I wanted to see until I wrote it all out, heh. And hey, if anyone else has any other recommendations, feel free to drop them by. I'm willing to give anything a chance if it strikes my interest.

Masterlist of days here.
