tuesday miscellany  
I feel better and am back at work. But I feel (weirdly) guilty because I wasn't as sick as other people in the office, some of whom I'm learning were also out at the same time. :>P Screw it. I needed rest.

My Angel S4 and S5 DVDs arrived at the same time. I think I'll watch all of S4 before I dip my toes in the waters of S5. I'm nervous. I stopped watching S5 at "The Cautionary Tale of Numero Cinco" because I was feeling anxious about Spike's characterization and didn't want to lose my love. I was tired of the slick hair and duster; I wanted Spike's soul arc to go somewhere new and meaningful (I always wanted him to be a *little* more retro-Williamy, which is why I had some issues with BtVS S7 as well); and seeing JM grow older, post-40, was freaking me out more and more. But we'll see how it goes.

I want to do the character meme that's going around. Maybe later today. I respect people who can come up with an interesting meme and make a success of it, so go you, to whoever started this one.

I appreciate all the feedback on recent stories; it's definitely helped me keep the momentum on writing. I'm keen to make more progress on my donation stories. I think I have five or six left. And I used the kick-start on noir to write some more on the next story, though I'm a bit stuck at the moment, so I hate to raise people's hopes or anything. My god. I feel like it'll be ten years to finish it, if I ever do finish it. It's so lame of me. I'm sorry.

My new job starts Thursday. I'm hopeful that I'll be challenged but not overwhelmed.

I emit waves and particles of post-Valentine's love to everyone on my flist and friends-of list. ::love:: And, um...that's all. I lunch now.

Hey. This is off-topic to your post, but I thought I should tell you in case you didn't already know. www.drizzle.com was hacked last night. You should probably check your webpage and stuff to make sure it wasn't damaged. :)

Thank you. I've fixed it--haven't checked all pages, but I think it was just the index. If it still seems down, just give it a hard refresh, or use index2.html. :)

"I feel like it'll be ten years to finish it"

It will be worth the wait in gold!
Particles of love back at you...(I've given up the British reserve thing...)

I think Season 5 got better for Spike after that last one you saw.. don't be scared.

I have issues with the way they handled souled Spike, too. Crazy-in-the-basement Spike was entertaining, but then they got him out of the basement and, oh look, all better. Bah.

The scene at the end of Beneath You kills me, though. Am I right in thinking that Joss did a rewrite of that scene and that's why it was so good? I can't remember where I heard that.

And how cold is Buffy?

Glad to see I am not the only person with issues about Angel S5 Spike's chaaracterisation. It still upsets me no end - talk about lack of developement and full on regression to something he never was.

Bah.

Hmm, interesting. I am keen to see if my initial impressions change as I watch the rest of it. *fingers crossed*

Think of it this way - if you hadn't taken the time off you would have ended up as sick as the other people and had to take even more time off.

Or they just lie about how ill they were better than you do.

Oh and personally - I would rather wait ten years for Noir than not get it at all

That's what I thought! *hugs* :>)

You're a doll. Can I hug you more? *g*

I hope you feel happier about seasaon 5 Spike when you've seen it. I wasn't entirely happy with his arc myself, have to say, but he did get some wonderful moments, all the same.

That's so good to know! :>D

Also, your icon: *kiss!* hee.

It's good, isn't it? mogigraphia made it.
