Quickies


  • I rode my scooter to work yesterday, and today. It's sort of cold when I ride -- that is, around 8:30 am and 6/7pm -- but it's so nice and warm during the day! I think I could totally ride my scooter all year long, if I just got a few pieces of cold-weather gear (winter riding gloves, a chin/face protector, fleece-lined jeans, and the zipper on my riding jacket fixed), but the question remains, would it still be fun? I love my scooter but I hates being cold.

    I got a flat on the ride in this morning! Luckily I made it to the office safely; I didn't notice it until I was turning into the parking lot, in fact. I fixed it during lunch in twenty-five minutes! I felt very proud of myself. I got greasy!

  • I really have to update my resume, for SERIOUS.

  • I am loving this season of Gilmore Girls. The writing is SO realistic. There are still little things here and there I would do differently, but overall, I think it's excellent. Characters are acting like people in LIFE, not like people in a teevee show, who act ridiculous just to set up dramatic situations. Suck it, Palladinos. Sorry.

I got off the Gilmore Girls train when Lorelai and Christopher got together. I never really liked the guy, plus Friday Night Lights is pretty great.

Man, I know, I was frustrated too! But they're playing it very, very well. He's annoying enough to remind us why it never worked before, but treats L well enough to remind us why she changed her mind this year. They're doing a really good job with it. I'm pleased. There's plenty of season left for them to implode, and for Lorelai to get back together with Luke.

I was actually thinking about writing a little about the Gilmore Girls. I have liked it a lot too. So far this season there has already been 3 references to old movies. I think Lorelai was always into old movies but I never knew anything about them before the last few years. So far they mentioned Casablanca, watched Funny Face, and The Philadelphia Story. I have seen them all now. I watched Funny Face on Monday night. It was so freaking cute. I love love love Audrey Hepburn.

I'm starting to used to the Christopher thing. He's not so bad. He is trying really hard.

Now...Luke...I feel soooooo bad for Luke. He loses everything he loves. I love that he is so into being a Dad to April. I DON'T however like the actress that plays April. She looks perfect for her character but she is a TERRIBLE actress. The way she whined the last too episodes made me want to choke her. I'm not complaining about the whining. 13 years olds are supposed to whine. But she is not realistic at all. Ugh. Oh well.

I also love Rory's new friends. They are fun and perky and great at funny banter.

Funny Face...that's the one where she dances around in Gap pants to AC/DC, right?

Ha Ha :(

Yes. Actually it is the movie that they made the commercial from. F the Gap.

Actually she is in a smokey club in Paris talking to "empathicalists" that don't speak any english. Fred Astair has an argument with her about women asking men to dance and then she does that crazy dance. The dance sequence is much longer and funny.

I can almost guarantee you it will still be fun. Remember to try to wear black (for daytime riding); it helps.

I love riding in the somewhat-cold. If I didn't have to bring something to/from work almost every day I'd definitely be riding my bike.

Way to go on having a spare tire! I never thought about it before but I have no idea what I would do if I got a flat. I should probably buy some ramps.
