"I'm the grammar technician"  
++ Watched Dollhouse last night, enjoyed it a whole lot, will make a review later. But I do have one thing to say which technically is non-spoilery: I wanna play lazer tag with Sierra and Topher! That is all. ♥

++ As much as I liked Thursday's episode of SPN I was slightly distracted because I'm waiting for 4.20, in which we are treated with the US promo, SPACE promo which are always the bestest ones tbh, and topping all that off is an adorable spoilery sneak peek clip. WHY DO THEY TEASE US SO?! WHY I ASK WHY?! Although I haven't been completely deprived of my angel since from the Aussie con and interviews and such I've been getting my Misha fix, so it's all good. Still, seeing what's to come next week is killing me, because I want it now dammit. Epic yes, this episode will be.

++ Yet another Jensen/Misha/Jared interview. ♥ ♥ ♥

++ Meet the cast of Caprica interview, some general info background about the actors and the characters they play, not entirely spoilerish I don't think. Also if you go to 2:50....UNEXPECTED TRICIA HELFER IS UNEXPECTED! Gorgeous at that too, hehe.

++ In a bit more serious news, the potential threat of a new flu pandemic is slightly disconcerting. I'm not really a hypochondriac but still, epidemics and pandemics are something that I tend to worry about because we have this notion that nothing bad is ever going to happen to us, but we aren't invincible, and some people's immune systems are weaker than others and especially now since many are fighting allergy season it can get pretty scary thinking about how many have been infected and died thus far. So, idk, perhaps it's not something to be terribly worried about as of yet but I'll be keeping my eye on what's happening.

This whole flu pandemic is nothing to worry about. It was like last year when they had that major Chicken flu, and then the mad cow disease thing, and a couple years ago the bird flu. I always think that the news and the media blow these things out of porportion, just to scare us into buying and doing things.

I read an article saying that simply washing your hands all the time is the cure for this pig flu, and I was like "Oh well that's it then?", so you really shouldn't freak out :]

I still have yet to watch Dollhouse, I had to work yesterday night so I DVR'd it.

It might be overblown, but in our unpredictable world we never know what might happen particularly if something threatens our immune system. So I'm just keeping myself informed. Not really freaking out, but there's nothing wrong with being alert on such cases either.

Watch Dollhouse already! ;p It was more a stand-alone but I liked what it presented for the most part so, yay.

I wouldn't worry about the flu until it's actually bigger. I keep thinking back to all the scares we've had about possible epidemics and pandemics that had news sites tracking deaths and now we don't even remember them. But if you're worried about your immune system drink 3 to 5 cups of green tea a day. It boosts the immune system. I know a lady who drinks 5 cups of green tea a day and hasn't been sick since she started a couple years ago (and she's old). I drink around that much every day too.

I'm a health enthusiast myself so I'll take that under consideration. I think the thing about this is that it's something new and we have no idea how this'll affect our immune systems. Anything new that threatens our survival automatically causes panic, and I'm not in that panicking stage but definitely not saying "eh whatever" to it because ignoring it would be a bad idea. Just keeping watch on the what's-what in case something big does happen.

Yeah, I've been reading the articles on it to see what's going on. But like you, I'm not in panic mode. I do recommend the green tea, though! It's not quite as hard as I thought it would be to get my 3 to 5 cups of green tea in a day. If you don't drink it now it is an acquired taste. I basically had to decide that I wasn't going to give up on it but now I love it!

I am overdosing on the J2M love, it is a wonderful feeling especially since I am deprived of new SPN for a while.

I think it perfectly normal to keep your eye on this pandemic; I am not too worried yet but I wish the world would once again take this as a cue to do something about the state people live in and the conditions we keep animals for consumption, or things like this I will suspect will never end.

Hee, J2M, I love that! XD And yes, I'm also overdosing on them as well, they are just too adorable together it's making my fangirl heart swell. ♥

Yeah. But most people probably won't see it as such which is slightly scary if we want to prevent another outbreak from becoming lethally widespread; better prevent something like it from happening rather than hoping for the best, y'know. I am quite a health enthusiast and right now am trying to fight common allergies here, so hearing something like this is definitely making me kinda wary.

Awww Tricia ♥ The background music was totally distracting lol.

I think the media has been especially jumpy ever since SARS happened. Srsly, like, dude, just chill out first and get the facts arrite? I'll only really worry when it's officially classified as pandemic-level. (and then build myself a fallout shelter and hide in there with my dvds and food).
Renée: Six. It's good to be a Cylon.rogueslayer452 on April 26th, 2009 08:36 am (UTC)

Yeah the background music was just a tad louder than it should've been, but surprise!Tricia in the background was simply adorable. I saw little clips from the event they appeared on too, again adorable and sat next to Grace Park. Hee.

I do think we should be informed about these things but yeah, the media has definitely gone overboard way to many times with this "omg are you sick? well you better go to your doctor or else you may die!" sort of panic. And you're right, unless there is an official word this isn't going to be a huge deal to worry over. But certainly keeping tabs on what's happening regarding this.

OMG J2M are so cute!! I mean jensen and jared are funny and charasmatic but misha just says something that makes them all (and me!) crack up completely, I love how they all seem so friendly XD
I loved 'where would you like to see the characters end up?' 'In the White House!!'

I hadn't even heard about the flu pandemic... Your entries are educating me!! Hope it doesn't develop into something mAjor... I'll carry on with the vitamin c doses...

Dollhouse was cute this week! I thought Eliza did an excellent job in the role she played!! I don't like that some people think she's a sucky actress!!!
Renée: Echo/Sierra. BFFs.rogueslayer452 on April 26th, 2009 06:47 pm (UTC)
SRSLY! Jensen and Jared were adorable before, but adding Misha into the mix is like icing on the cake with the whipped cream and a cherry on top. The fact that they mesh so well together, I'm swooning over here. ♥

This new flu pandemic scare is definitely something to watch out for, whether or not it's being overblown by the media ignoring it altogether would be a bad idea.

It was cute, wasn't it? But cute and sad, with the mixture of loneliness and knowing the cold hard truth. Either way, I liked it. But yes, Eliza did wonderfully, very elegant in how she portrayed this woman's personality. Why people think she's not a great actress idk, but everyone has their own perceptions and it's a shame they don't see her amazing potential. But oh well.
