tv // bones // bb hug


- Bones made me smile and LOL tonight. Felt like the first time in a long time. I welcome the return of the warm fuzzies. A curse FOX all over again for the #$%^&ing three-week hiatus.

- TGTIF: Thank God tomorrow is Friday. With spring break beckoning from the 27th, every day seems a week long.

- I finally have a name for my FMC for the story idea that literally came from a dream I had: Annike Saleus, Annie for short. (Thanks seldear :)) Naming characters is definitely one of the most fun parts of planning a story: I also have Joachim and Leopold Giehl, Engel Langbroek, Elsbeth and Yvo. And Nicodemus. I always wanted to name a character Nicodemus. So... now to write the blasted thing. :-p

- The latest (sorta) fandom/Hollywood kerfuffle is that OMG they cast a white girl to play Katniss in The Hunger Games, when she's described in the book as having olive skin! Yawn. 1) Really? You're going to complain about an Emmy Oscar-nominated actress being chosen, when it just as easily could have been some vapid twit*? 2) If Suzanne Collins is fine with it, I'm fine with it. 3) Honestly, I just can't bring myself to care that much.

* Not that that particular twit was ever in the running (God forbid). But there's plenty other twits running around Hollywood. I'm just pointing out that it could have been much, much, much worse.
