i'm so back into law and order: svu.  seriously mainlining the show.  i can't turn it off.  damn you, netflix, and bless you too for instant viewing and for having the entire series online.  it makes my life so much easier and yet so much more sedentary!   the only thing i've done today other than watch episode after episode is shower (and troll for chris/marish rpf--sue me, i love it).  so at least i'm clean.  and watching meloni in a bathrobe seems like a good thing to do anyway. 

in other less silly news, my band solid state had our first little gig last night.  we played the birthday party of this woman i don't know, set up in the living room and rocked the house.  i was incredibly nervous but it was pretty awesome.  you know, if i do say so myself.  i only forgot lyrics in one song and covered admirably.  so admirably in fact that my band mates didn't even notice.   it was a fun night and now that i've got the first gig out of the way i feel ready to hit the bars.  i love my band!  if you want to check us out a teeny bit you can check out our myspace.  the songs are poorly recorded, just a digital recorder set in the middle of the basement where we practice and i had a cold (!), but you can get an idea of our sound at least.   and if you have a myspace feel free to friend us.  we could use all the help we can get.  /begging.

so that's me.  how are you guys?

at 7:30 this evening, after a long, sweet day of the zoo and costco (!) with my brother and nephews, i was so sleepy and cozy and i could have just set my alarm and gone to bed.  but no, i had to watch if lucy fell, which i loved when i first saw it way back in 1996 (best friend kink ho!) but certainly hasn't stood up to the test of time.  and then i thought: ok one ep of svu (1st of 4th season, i'm a maniac!) and then i thought: how about a bedtime story by [ profile] surreallis ?(damn girl i love the way you write!) and then oh look!  that website svufiction dot com has some stuff that might be worth looking at and now it's midnight on sunday, i'm wide awake, and all i want to do is stay up all night reading.   such is my life.  whatevs.

i missed the oscars--didn't even realize they were on tonight.  but that's not unusual, i never watch them.  i always feel vaguely uncomfortable with awards shows like someone's going to trip going up the stairs or forget to thank their mom or husband (hello hillary swank!) or be stupider than i want them to be.  and i'm really only in it for the gowns anyway.  but i did catch the youtubed intro with jackman and boy was that terrific!  i loved how stripped down it was--a really good-natured fun routine with no frills that made me laugh out loud and was, i thought, really respectful of the state of our economy.  it wasn't like it was pedantic--"hey we're a mess!  don't spend any money!  here's a brown paper bag to wear!"--but it wasn't an in your face hollywood has so much money they don't know what to do with it kind of thing either.  it was a romp and that's kind of what we need, don't you think?  and hugh jackman should win every award anyway because he's so incredibly sexy and marvelous and giggly and man he can sing.  "i'm wolveriiiiiiiiiiiine!!!!!!!!!" awesome.  

crap.  i should try to go to sleep. ha!  i can probably make it through another ep of svu before i get sleepy.   catch you all on bleary-eyed monday!

eta: saw this over at [ profile] sheafortherdon's lj (thanks, cate!) and had to post it here because it's been a while since our prez got some love from my journal, so here they are in all their glory----YES THIS IS OUR FUCKING PRESIDENT AND HIS AWESOME FIRST LADY!!!!!!!!! ARE THEY NOT BLESSED BY ANGELS??

 so there are a couple of you who will appreciate this.  the opening scene in execution when stabler and huang are questioning brodus in his cell?  the first lines are: "how do you remember your first time?"  and you hear huang say: "fondly."  and then stabler answers the question with the same: "fondly."  and i was totally confused because huh?  mukada's a priest and a virgin, right?  how could he remember his first time?  and then i realized i was watching svu but thinking i was watching oz!  i mean keller er meloni, er stabler!  and a jail cell.  and mukada i mean huang....and it all came clear to me.  it's freakin' confusing sometimes to have all these crossover oz guest stars on svu, dammit!  i mean i know huang isn't a guest star but criminy.  give a girl break, ok?   i think that's what they call cognitive dissonance....and it's only getting worse.
