Last night I watched a very silly movie, then came home and watched the eclipse, The West Wing, and Lost.
Lost was lovely.
The Day After Tomorrow, throughout most of its lumbering, overblown plot, had better writing than last night’s episode of The West Wing, about which I can only say, “WTF?”
Back to books. I can’t take the hack screenwriters anymore.
Hastings, which is in the doghouse for having ordered The Book of Athyra for me two weeks ago and still claiming that it’s on a truck somewhere, has slightly redeemed itself by putting out copies of Banewreaker a week early. Now that’s a reason to support my local retailer. Yay, clueless book managers!

Silly movie? Do tell. We definitely need more silly movies in our lives.
Lost was lovely, wasn’t it? Mmm. I finally got around to looking up people on IMDB. I got the guy from The English Patient and the one from Angel/ER/24, but missed on where we’d seen the dad of the kid. Still think we’ve seen him somewhere. No idea where.
That’s Harold Perrineau Jr.—Mercutio in the funky modern Romeo + Juliet, and Link in the Matrix sequels. Also the yoga teacher who broke his neck trying to impress a girl on Dead Like Me, if you’ve seen that ep.
I’d no idea Daniel Dae Kim had been on ER and 24. When he turned up on Angel I recognized him from the B5 spinoff, Crusade. Which tells you how much network TV I’ve been watching for the last few years; the guy has been absolutely everywhere according to IMDB.
Soooooo good to see Naveen Andrews again.
Watching Lost and West Wing on the same night tends to get a little disorienting, since until this week Terry O’Quinn was on both of them. That guy gets around, too.
The silly movie was The Day After Tomorrow.
Lost is definitely on my “must-see” list each week. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much, but the storytelling format and the twisty character stuff is quite engaging.
