1) I keep meaning to say that I was disappointed with Obama's press conference. After the amount of time he spoke to reporters during his campaign, I don't feel he has any excuse for the performance he put on.

I feel that it's my responsibility to say this because you all know how supportive I was of his campaign and I feel I should also be critical when it is necessary. There were two key things that bothered me.

First off, I felt like there was much too much finger-pointing and accusatory language used by him to talk about the Republicans in Congress. I am pissed with the way the Republicans handled the stimulus package, but I felt like Obama was defensive and accusatory. Come on, Barack. We all know they were being lame. What happened to you stepping above that shit? That's part of why I voted for you.

Secondly, he did not appear to have ready answers. He ummed and y'knowed a lot. He ummed and y'knowed much more than he did during the campaign, and these were all questions he should have expected to receive. On top of that, he gave a lot of non-answers. Non-answers are okay if you explain why you're giving a non-answer. Some, he did, like the issue of photographing the coffins of American troops, which I was pleased to see Gates followed through on almost immediately. Others he didn't, and he sounded kinda wishy-washy.

There was one other, but since I can't remember it now, it can't have been that important. So, yeah, Barack, sorry, but I expect to hear that was your stand-in or something, or you're getting like a C+ from me on that performance. I said frequently during the campaign that as long as he could inspire confidence, I would be happy even if he didn't get everything one his list accomplished. Likewise, even if he's getting things done, I won't be pleased if he can't hold a press conference together without being all whiny about how he inherited this problem.

2) Also on politics, is anyone else annoyed about the whole Daschle thing? I know the guy "failed to pay" his taxes. And frankly, for a former public official who got paid out of those taxes and knows how important taxes are to the working of, well, everything, I'm very disappointed. But I also think that he was one of the strongest and most effective members of Obama's transition team, and I feel strongly that he was the right guy for that post. So I'm kinda torn.

3) I have felt absolutely NO urge to liveblog LOST this year. That being said, I don't think it's because it's bad. The first episode was meh, but I've been liking it a lot since then. I just don't feel like it; I think in some ways it's actually because it's become smarter again and less WTF LOL than it was for a while. I do have one comment about tonight's episode under the cut )

4) What is even better than LOST, is Fringe. Fringe is one of those TV shows that comes around once in a blue moon, that is well-written and complex without being overly complicated or completely dependent on novelty, that has amazing characters (Walter is possibly my favorite TV character, EVER), and that is filmed beautifully to boot. That's what got me to keep watching the show. It's beautiful. The last show I can remember being this good is, well, Twin Peaks.

5) It was beautiful and warm today. I took a walk at lunch; without my jacket. Sometimes simple things like sunshine can make life wonderful.

6) I am going to San Antonio this weekend with my mother. To get my bike out of the basement of the Alamo. I like telling people that and seeing who gets the joke, who laughs, but doesn't get where it's from, and who is like, bzuh?

7) Tomorrow I have dinner plans with [livejournal.com profile] cheshire23 and her friend, and [livejournal.com profile] cacophonesque. We will probably discuss clicks and our deccenting opinions over Ethiopian foodz.

Lost Wax!

I was all set to do a LOST post when the show started tonight, and then about two minutes into it, I just couldn't really get my stride. Let's face it, I think everyone here knows that LOST is not really the show it was the first season, but last season finally started to feel like it was getting back on track; it wasn't quite so soap-opera ridiculous, there was more sci-fi type stuff in the show again. More Tempest references, among other things. It was like they finally got a writing team reassembled that got all the references the first season writers had stuck in.

This season premiere, and I don't think this will spoil the show for anyone who's not yet watched it, just felt like a rehash episode. They have the hour long special to re-introduce the characters and plot, and you KNOW it's getting convoluted when I actually was surprised by things I had forgotten from previous seasons. Then the two hour premiere...didn't really set up anything we didn't already know. It was more like a three hour refresher episode instead of just one.

Also, I was disappointed that they didn't find the hatch when Kelvin was there. I was so waiting for a Kelvin cameo. Boo. Okay, that's a spoiler. Sorry.

I still have high hopes for this season and next, because I feel like they can have a directed plan and know where they're going now, and that I am looking forward to-- it's one of the things that I always liked about the 4400, is that that show always felt very carefully planned out, and LOST wasn't as good when it was too open-ended. I just felt like the show has gotten so complicated that it took way too long to set things up in this opener.

Instead, I will tell you about what I did today! Today, at lunch, I went to get my chin and lip waxed. Now, one thing you might not know about me is that, well, I have massive old lady whiskers. Like, not enough to be a bearded lady, but I can certainly sport the ol' five o'clock shadow. I could totally be a Marlboro man or something like that. I have tried waxing at home, but I always got massive acne, and for years, I've just tweezed. I've gotten my eyebrows done once before, but...well, I felt sort of silly, putting all that effort into changing the shape of my eyebrows? Seriously. But I know it made a difference, and I wondered if it would work on my chin and lip so I wouldn't have to tweeze so much.

The lady was very nice and very efficient, and very worried when she finished that my skin was so red, so I assured her that that was normal, and went my merry way. The redness was gone within an hour, but I will remember that if I try it again, not to do it in the middle of the day. Way home from work would be better.

Now, here's the trouble. It got rid of all the nice, soft white peach-fuzzy hair that to me is completely innocuous and unoffensive, but it didn't get rid of the ugly black whiskers. I had to tweeze those myself when I got home, and to make matters worse, I don't know if it makes the whiskers more visible, but it certainly makes them more evident when I rub my chin, because now it's not just some coarser spots and finer spots, it's like, smooth skin, smooth skin-- GIANT OLD LADY WHISKER. And I may just be paranoid, but I think I can feel them growing in! I have already tweezed my chin twice tonight since I got home from work.

So I'll see if it keeps the hairs down to a minimum at least, and maybe try a different waxing place to see if it's just that this one wasn't very good, but my first impression of waxing is not so impressed. I did notice, though, that it leaves significantly fewer bumps or red spots than shaving (YES I HAVE TRIED SHAVING MY FACE, SHUT UP), so I am actually kinda considering trying a bikini wax sometime. But I'm a little disappointed that this didn't more completely decimate my old lady whiskers.

So, [livejournal.com profile] lunylucy did an automatic writing assignment for class and I decided to do some automatic writing of my own this evening.

1002 words of nonsense...or is it? )

I realized about halfway through Lost that I had forgotten to liveblog. Oh well! I liked it, although this OMG WE WILL REVEAL ANOTHER MEMBER OF THE OCEANIC SIX gimmick is kind of lame. One of the things I do like about the show is that no one can really be pegged as all bad or all good.

I have news of a personal nature which I will post the next time I post a locked post, because it concerns a family member who has not told everyone in his immediate life yet. But it is good news, very good news.

You are all awesome people. I have not been as good a commenter lately as I should be, and [livejournal.com profile] rotae made me smile today by including me on her list of 20 people and I just got a tickle out of that, but I started to do it and can't pick just 20 so no list. Just, you are all awesome. Congratulations, [livejournal.com profile] coldwriter on your book; [livejournal.com profile] captain_hat, your comic is awesome, [livejournal.com profile] emmiiiie, things totally get better and people stop being petty jerks, [livejournal.com profile] mel06, I got a kick out of your voting post, [livejournal.com profile] cinediva, that spindle is hot. If I forgot to comment on something important, or missed it completely, pretend I commented because I really would have liked to.

I have been writing song lyrics again for the first time in a long time. They're just bits and pieces of things, and I sort of wish I played an instrument well enough to record some of them for you to hear without them just being a cappella.

Now I am sleepy. Nighty-night!
