Holy bovines - it's October. Apparently time flies even faster than it used to, and I update even less often than I used too. Anyway, hope everyone's doing well!

Summer was mostly lacking in fandom activities, due to a sad abundance of ICU rotations. Somewhere I still have the newest season of Doctor Who to watch, plus all of the first season of Ashes to Ashes. And I hear there's this new thing on TV called the fall season, with all new strike-free episodes. Weird.

I did see one episode of the new Amazing Race, which seems particularly thronged with annoying teams this time around. Is there some kind of rule that smart guy teams must consist of slightly pudgy nearsighted guys in need of haircuts?

While unlike certain folks around these parts, I have not gone so far in my culinary adventures as to bake bread, join a farmshare, or, terror of terrors, make up brand new recipes, I am happy to report on a success shopping trip to the local cut-rate produce store. Considering I have spent the past few months living on the contents of my freezer and cupboards, it was pretty exciting to splurge on fall produce. I got a whole cored/peeled pineapple, some skinny asparagus which blanched nicely into skinny cooked asparagus, and some Italian sausage. The latter I used to make a whole pan of lasagna (sadly also using the last of my canned spaghetti sauce). It is not my best lasagna ever, but I have already eaten 2/3 of the pan. Finding room for lasagna also gave me inventive to clean out the fridge, where some really old parsley and some really old onions were doing unspeakable things inside their plastic produce bags. I don't even blanch at draining someone's abscess anymore, but I say with great authority that my rotting produce was really gross.

All right, enough with As the Kitchen Turns.

Random fandom question if anyone feels inclined to answer: what is Dr Horrible? And why are people so excited by it?

Dr. Horrible is a 45 minute movie Joss Whedon made and posted on the internet in 15 minute installments. While you can probably dl it illegally, at this point it's not free anymore. You have to buy it. Fandom is all crazy about it because it's awesome. LOL I even wrote a fic in which I SANG. Out loud. On the internet. Be scared.

Also, hi! :)

Hi yourself! And thanks. Hope the new job is going well.

I will have to check out the Dr Horrible thing. I don't know whether to be amused, afraid, intrigued or all three.

However, there's a big shift in tone betwen Dr. Horrible Parts 1+2 and 3, and not only are shifts in tone controversial on the artistic level, but a lot of people didn't like the ending.

You're not going to move again before Christmas, are you? E-mail me your snail addy so I'll be sure to send your pressy TO THE RIGHT PLACE this time.

I've given up on the whole "watching TV on the TV" business, it puts far too much control in irresponsible hands.

The fact that I have yet to see it, does not bode well for my doing so.

Thank goodness, I have not moved again. I'm just never home. And thanks.
