I'm in the process of quitting caffeine. I'm down to one can a day, and plan to be entirely quits of the addiction as soon as my current twelve-pack runs out. I believe that this is why I've had several low-grade headaches over the past few weeks (painful enough to make the idea of being social almost unbearable but not painful enough to make me give up on quitting, which is what happened every time I tried to give it up cold turkey). So, that'll all be done with soon, hopefully, and I can begin to again behave like an actual human being who is capable of two-way communication.
Just watched the first season of Slings and Arrows (a Canadian series about directing Shakespeare. In the first season, Paul Gross plays a director who comes back to direct Hamlet, the play that drove him to a nervous breakdown when he played the lead). It's fantastic (as can be judged by the fact that I watched all six episodes straight though and couldn't have stopped myself if I'd tried). Paul Gross is fabulous and beautiful and utterly unlike Benton Fraser (though, amusingly enough, his character in this also sees a ghost).
I'm up to the beginning of Season Six of SG-1 in my viewing with my mother (who was spoiled only to the extent that Daniel's character was leaving and coming back). She was actually really happy when Jonas got to be fourth on SG-1, as she was kinda nervous that they'd add another soldier or someone who was as unlike Daniel as possible (I refused to tell her who would be replacing Daniel, which, on reflection, comes across as a good move).
I've been rewatching due South with my roommate (jic) and our most recent episode was Perfect Strangers, wherein Ray is really cute in Canada and Fraser is really, really hot (though, honestly, I can say that about every single episode -- Fraser's hotness is a constant). I love RayK. So much. I love the RayK years. I love his playfulness with Welsh, the way his relationship develops with Frannie (I love, so much, that they moved Francesca into the station, and I adore her dynamic with Welsh an almost unbelievable amount), and, of course, with Fraser. I love just about everything about how Fraser and RayK develop as partners and friends.
Finished up Freaks and Geeks (conclusion: Lindsay should just have scenes with everyone, ever. She's great. And I loved especially loved her ending and also Daniel's, which was possibly the sweetest thing ever. "cool guys" Aw.).
Next up, I'm checking out Arrested Development. Will let y'all know how it goes.
