+ So I posted a longer than usual rant on Tumblr about the last TVD episode.
I think my interest in this show is part academic and part Bonnie stan at this point, so it's pretty much all about her. It times like this that I remember why I'm so into Brit TV right now, and why the idea of an American remake of The Misfits makes me feel like crying.
+ My sister is better. Thank you guys so much for the well wishes, it helped me calm the hell down and get through the day.
+ I have an interview for a job next week that I'm totally not qualified for, but heard there might be a good chance I could actually get it. It would be a 5K bump in salary and I wouldn't have to work for my current (slightly racist, a little misogynistic) boss anymore, soooo....
+ The only show I'm enjoying in its entirety right now is Prime Suspect. Which is shocking, because I just complained about American remakes, and the original version is one of my favorite shows of all time. NBC's take is a completely different show though, so much that I honestly wish they'd have called it something else. I'm sure it would've gotten better reviews if they had.
+ Back to TVD: I'm gonna channel my anger about the show and Bonnie into a formal academic essay and start submitting it to conferences this year. It's been ages since I've done that, and a long with fiction writing, I've felt a bit at sea without doing it.
+ I hope everyone's doing well. I'm kinda getting excited about the holiday season coming up, it's always been my favorite time to be on LJ. :)
