I can't believe how long it's been since I've gone on a Koontz binge. I'm going to have to do something about that soon. His next new one comes out on May 30th. Maybe I can talk someone into getting it for me as a yay you got your credential present. ;)

I broke down and bought the new SGA novel, Reliquary, by Martha Wells. Let me be frank: I'm expecting it not to be great. In fact I'm anticipating mockage, just from what I read off the authors' site. But I'll try to be nice. Neutral, at least. Stranger things have happened.

I downloaded and watched the first episode of Bones. I was kind of bummed that the characters had already met before the pilot, but I guess that does make it a little 'different'. I still have some issues with so many of the characters being stereotypish, or at least pegged at the level where you could imagine the creators sitting around going "Okay, we're going to have the brainy but emotionally distant pathologist, and the cute-but-nerdy young genius prodigy, and the goofy comic-relief conspiracy nut..." And their boss, the black guy, his way of talking bugs me. It's like, dude, you're on a crime show, not on stage doing Hamlet. Overall, though, the dialogue is amusing, and the stories are okay, and the "tv science" is cool, and yes, Booth and Bones are adorkable. I'm downloading the next two episodes now. At least it will give me something to watch when I'm procrastinating my interview prep this weekend.

Oh yeah, interview prep *screams*

lol, I actually had a Bones dream last night, sort of! I dreamed that I had met and became friends with the gal who plays Brennan - no idea who the actress' name is, but for some reason I was calling her Tiffany - and we were hanging out and lusting after DB ;)
Well it's a good idea going in to have an idea for questions like 'what is your ideal language arts program' or 'how would you like to run your classroom management program'. And I'm going to put together some of the basics in a folder along with my resume so I have something physical to present.
Actually, you find out in a later episode (I think it's the one after they're quaranteened?) that the boss is an archaeologist with a flair for the dramatic! :) He kinda grows on you.

Bones is a great series, and mostly because the characters are so cute!
I think I had picked that up from subsequent episodes (I think I started watching about episode 113) but still... I keep wanting to smack him!
Bones' second ep is not their best. But after that it picks up.
