So... I know I've been mostly absent... I saw Amy's comment in RB and I just want to assure her that it is not her fault I quit RB :P. It's nobody's fault. I just am not social by nature and I'm on a mission of removing all sources of anxiety from life... It's not exactly working, I'm always going to be anxious about something I guess...

Nothing's going on, nothing to talk about, and it always amazes me looking back that I actually *have* said things here in the past because what in the world is there to talk about? The only new thing is that we've begun renting The OC from Netflix. I'm always somewhat reluctant to talk about my TV preferences since I think it may totally destroy any image anyone may have of my being an intellectual :-) but hey... I like the show... so does Darrell... even if it is billed as a "prime-time soap". Seth Cohen is the coolest.

Good. Glad to know I'm not guilty! And there's nothing wrong with a little guilty pleasure, either. ;-) (But I hope you'll put us back on your list of those... is it truly that anxiety-inducing???)

Hey I have all 7 seasons of Buffy on DVD

Well, when you decide to let some anxiety back into your life, I hope we're your method of choice. :-) I miss you, old friend.

Enjoy the show. We're working through Star Trek: Deep Space Nine at home and Commander in Chief every two weeks with my mom, so we're not exactly hip either.

The charming one! Good to hear from you. Brenda and I are enjoying Quantum Leap.

Hi! Good to hear you are well! If nothing else, the occasional update on how you're doing will be nice. Obviously, the more the better, but we'll take what we can get!

I'm being convinced to see Dexter, but I still don't know about that, yet... Hoping my wife got me House Season 2 and/or 3 when they were at Target for $24.99 each on Black Friday, but who knows...

I only have 2 seasons of Buffy, 5 and 6... chosen largely because of my ridiculous "thing" for Spike... Anyway Buffy probably counts as geek and therefore "chic" but The O.C. ? Not really :) Probably more perceived as a show for jocks and cheerleaders but I don't perceive it that way, at least the parts I have watched so far. (Not that there's anything wrong with being a jock or a cheerleader, I'd just prefer to identify with geeks :P )

My stupid brain

It seems I have quite a lot of former friends who wound up really, really, disliking me. So I am always alert to signs of that happening again. It's nobody's fault but my own, I assure you. Go »

American Gothic

Well, for quite a while I have had nothing to say to anyone about anything and it is getting a bit claustrophobic. So I figured I should start saying some things into the void, dumb and trivial as they might be. A while back there was a video store closing sale so we picked up a number of TV series on DVD at 75% off. Go »

Would you like the receipt with you, or in the bag?

I don't really understand why people ask this. Doesn't it take longer to ask this question and wait for the answer than to just let the person do what they please with the receipt? Oh well. Go »


OK, I've read the reviews saying Torchwood is a terrible show that is nothing but gratuitous sex and violence but I gotta say I kind of disagree and kind of like it. Thanks to our public library for stocking such a non-educational program :P. Buffy fans particularly seem to despise this program but what the heck, I like both... Go »


So... not sure exactly why I live in this ridiculous state of North Dakota. I can tell myself that we're better off than California much of the time but who's to say? Go »
