I may need to stop watching Heroes. Any show that makes me scream, "OMG, you MORON!" repeatedly in the space of a single hour may not be something I need to subject myself to week after week. At the very least it can't be good for my blood pressure. I'd like to ask those reading this blog who have seen the episode to let me know which character you felt acted the most mentally challenged. So who do you think rides the short bus this week:

1. Suresh (He may win for the entire season at this rate)
2. Hiro (Yeah I know, but god he was dumb)
3. Nathan/Tracy (I'm lumping them together as a unit for the time being)
4. Peter (He's giving Suresh a run for his money)
5. Claire/Mom1/Mom2 (They seem aggressively determined to prove the "dumb blonde" stereotype)
6. Nominate your own mental defective if I've forgotten someone.

Bah, I say, and bah again!

In other news I seriously freaked myself out watching the "Son of Coma Guy" episode from season 3 of House. The bit where House discusses his take on the concept of unconditional love specifically. I have actually had that conversation with at least two people in the past couple of years and I've said almost exactly what House said in the episode. This isn't the first time I've spoken his next lines before the actor did, but this was the first time I'd naturally used the very same dialog in my own life. I've never seen myself quite so clearly in a character as I do in him and I'm not sure that's a good thing.

I've been spending lots of time with J- and various folks who've stopped by to say hi so very little time for updating I'm afraid. But I did want to say a couple of things about Heroes: )

My thoughts on last night's Heroes... )

And on the subject of the last SGA episode, can I just say one thing? PLEASE STOP SUCKING!!! Seriously, just stop already. One little sequence at the beginning where John clearly gets all jealous about Rodney liking somebody else was just not enough, not nearly enough. These are really the same people who came up with "The Shrine"? I'm finding that very hard to believe.

I just...wow:

Alexis Goggins, the plucky 7-year-old who police say was shot six times Sunday when she shielded her mother from an enraged ex-boyfriend, emerged from a successful six-hour surgery Friday night to relieved family members.

“Everything turned out good,” said Tonya Colbert, her cousin. “She’s amazing. She’s still fighting and she’s still pulling through.”

The first-grader at Campbell Elementary School in Detroit emerged sedated and bandaged around 8 p.m. at Children’s Hospital of Michigan from surgeries on her right arm, eye and jaw.

Selietha Parker, her 30-year-old mother, stayed by her daughter’s bedside until around 10 p.m., when numbness in her own left arm, which still had a bullet lodged in it, forced her back to Detroit Receiving Hospital’s emergency room.

“She hasn’t been able to take care of herself because she’s so worried about her daughter,” Colbert said.

Doctors on Friday inserted pins in Alexis’ right arm, removed her right eye and wired her jaw shut. They will give her days to heal before considering any further surgeries, Colbert said.

Her plight and heroic action have drawn media and public interest from around the country and abroad. The Detroit News receives dozens of e-mails and phone calls daily from concerned readers offering help and prayers.

On Friday, a Warren company that makes prosthetic eyes offered to donate one to Alexis.

“That is just wonderful,” Colbert said.

If you've got some spare cash around over the holidays may I suggest making a donation to help this little girl out? You can do so here:

Checks should be made out to the Alexis Goggins Hero Fund and sent to Campbell Elementary School in care of the Alexis Goggins Hero Fund, 2301 E Alexandrine St, Detroit, 48207. For information, call (313) 494-2052.

I have to admit that so far the free version of LJ is not bugging me nearly as much as I thought it would. And I'm finding life with fewer icons to be a pretty painless transition so yay, and again, yay.

Heroes continues to annoy me, though at least it was in mostly different ways last night. )

If you've caught up on Heroes I highly recommend taking a look at Lance Mannion's write up on the last episode. Dead. On.

Fave quotes behind the cut... )

If you're caught up on this season's Avatar go read the latest post at Boozebenders for it is made of awesome. I don't agree with every point, especially on "The Headband" but I love reading enthusiastic fan response to one of my favorite series even when we diverge on the fandom path.

Now regarding last night's Heroes... )
