Grumpy-inducing day. Not for any big reason. Just because any day that involves scrubbing the kitchen floor as the main activity isn't going to be one of the best days of my life, y'know? Plus, I realized I want to/need to delete half the scene I wrote this morning for my remix, and the township is being a bunch of idiots in what roads they're closing. They closed one road for some sort of construction, which is fair enough. And there's a very easy detour. But now they're closing THAT road because they're afraid of accidents. It's not that horrendous of a road, and there is such a thing as over-legislating. Sheesh.

Lots of people signing up for [livejournal.com profile] bsg_bigbang. I'm excited :) Some of the summaries sound awesome, too. I love big bangs, because I adore me my plot, and big bangs have to be plotty.

No running today. Today's big adventure is trying a new recipe from this month's Cooking Light- a bacon and mushroom risotto. I have uncured applewood smoked bacon to use in it, and it uses three different kinds of mushrooms. We'll have a salad with it, and chocolate-peanut butter puddings for dessert. Mmmm.

Been watching The Pacific (wow, I really am procrastinating). I think it's brilliantly done, but I have to admit, I'm not liking it as much as I liked Band of Brothers. There are some aspects that make me really excited, like the fact that we're seeing the hospitals set up in the Pacific. My grandmother was a nurse in WWII in New Guinea. (She outranked both my grandfathers. She was AWESOME.) I think there are two things that make me like BoB better:

1.) BoB focused on the development of this very tight company. It lived up to its title, and that's one of the things I love most about it. The Pacific is more isolated- there isn't a core group of friends like that.

2.) BoB often focused on how war can bring out the best in these guys, and how some of them rose above terrible moments to do some heroic things. The Pacific is focusing more on the horrors of war and the terrible things people can do in such situations. I think both are incredibly important messages, but the first is definitely more fun to watch.

That said, I still think it's awesome.

Okay. stop procrastinating, and remix!
