bad me, no cookie

Banquet on Friday Thursday was a waste of time and money. It was supposed to start at 7:30, but no one really showed up until almost 8:30, and they hadn't started the actual speech part by the time I gave up and left at 9:30. The only amusing bit was my thoughts as I left: "I Naired my legs for this?"

I've finished the bibliography, but I've gotten nothing else done. Why am I so terrible at motivating myself to work? I'm now almost two days behind on my schedule; I'm not sure I'll be able to catch up even if I don't sleep the rest of the weekend. *headdesk* I suck at this whole school thing.

TV Keyword Meme
-Go to IMDB.com and look up 10 of your favorite TV shows you watch.
-Post three official IMDB "Plot Keywords" for these 10 picks.
-Have your friends guess the show names.

To help you out, one is a cartoon, and of the nine remaining one is not sci-fi. Three are spin-offs, two have spin-offs, one is loosely-based on a movie, two have movie(s) based on them. Six are currently running new episodes or will later this year, but one of those has been canceled and is running its last episodes. All but three are currently airing at least re-runs, and one of those three recently finished a run of its single season.

All correct, but you knew this.
May. 13th, 2007 12:07 am (UTC)
One is Firefly, three is Six Feet Under and eight is Jake 2.0?
May. 13th, 2007 12:12 am (UTC)
Yes, no, and yes. Updating it now. :D You're right that that's the non-sci-fi one, but wrong show.
May. 13th, 2007 12:22 am (UTC)
Is it one of the L&O franchise, maybe?
May. 13th, 2007 12:24 am (UTC)
Really, really warm. :D
May. 13th, 2007 12:27 am (UTC)
Soooo then it's not SVU or CI, it's the original, right? Also I suspect at least one of the others contains the only fruit most geeks get in their diets -- Roddenberries.
May. 13th, 2007 12:28 am (UTC)
Correct on both counts, but I shan't tell you which Roddenberry, or how many. *updates #3*
May. 13th, 2007 12:34 am (UTC)
Two and five, TNG and Enterprise respectively. *fingers crossed* Although I've heard some say that the latter is really only imitation Roddenberry -- not quite as good as the original. And I almost guessed that my first time but I second guessed myself, so I'm probably wrong, because if I thought I was wrong before, I was probably right about that.

I'm sure there's something more productive I should be doing right now, but I'm... not.

*ding ding* We have a winnah!
May. 13th, 2007 12:35 am (UTC)
Also, is six Painkiller Jane?
May. 13th, 2007 12:37 am (UTC)
You're just getting them all, aren't you? :D Can you get the last one?
May. 13th, 2007 12:39 am (UTC)
The only thing I can come up with for nine is Heroes, but I'm sure that's wrong.

Hehehehe. Number Six.

What about it?

...I don't see the connection.

Is 9 Eureka?
May. 25th, 2007 03:12 am (UTC)
Indeed it is! Congrats.
May. 25th, 2007 04:13 pm (UTC)
I'm not proud. I'm embarrassed. I gave that show two chances too many.
Jun. 1st, 2007 03:33 am (UTC)
Why's that? It's a good show, imho.
Jun. 1st, 2007 04:59 pm (UTC)
Because I watched the first five episodes and not once in there was there a single compelling character or believable plot. Because the show had the unshakable belief that enough technological gimmicks could drown out those fundamental flaws. Because they were trying so hard and yet could never summon anywhere near the X-Files' level of paranoia about the hidden secrets. Because Jack Carter was too stupid, his daughter too rebellious, and every character was too something. Because I've never been shy to admit a love for bad science fiction and yet I was embarrassed to admit that I was watching Eureka. Because Who Wants To Be a Superhero made Eureka look dumb. Because Enterprise made Eureka look dumb.
