I've been meaning to write here for a week now. 

I have so much to say about my normal babble, I can't remember where to start. LOL I'll just start fresh.

Today marks the first day of my new exercise routine and nutrition plan. I've started the P90X Lean routine. The 90 stands for 90 days. Am I crazy? Hell yes I am. Wanna know what else? I'm also combining it with the C25K program!! :D

I'm going to kill myself. I just know it.

The first workout for P90X was Core Synergistics which brings back memories (good and bad) of public school P.E Class. Oi. Ok, that's not fair. It's P.E. Class on crack. The full routine is 57mins long, and I managed to hit the water break somewhere near the 35min mark. It only proved to me how horribly out of shape I am. It's all good though. I got through the very first half of the very first workout, and now that I've rested a bit and eaten a snack, I'm going to go warm up again and finish the last half. RAWR, I say.

Tomorrow is the Cardio routine which is more promising to me as I know I have the stamina for it. Also: I feel a bit behind with the P90X system because I haven't gotten the small weights I need + an area to do pull ups etc. I'll cross that bridge when I get there. I'm just modding the whole program to fit my situation anyway, and I still feel the workout is totally rewarding by the end. Oh, a better, bigger space is also going to be required other than the small section in my room :/

TV SHOWS! Omg, I have so many now I don't know what to do with myself.

Heroes has ended, and I loved it. Especially since Samuel didn't DIE, just got arrested which gives me hope the non-specials will be stupid enough to lock him up with other specials and BOOM! Escapee Samuel on a revenge path forcing the whole crew to come together a real team/family and protect people. Trope, yes, but I would LOVE IT TO PIECES.

Shows that are required watching if you want to remain friends with me (really so you'll know what the hell I'm talking about more than anything mean ;] ):

White Collar and Modern Family.

White Collar is a brilliant crime-drama because it doesn't treat it's viewers as dumb watchers. It's engaging, witty, strong and every single one of the characters is lovable. Even the bad guys. Plus, the women aren't stupid but successful beings with BRAINS that don't always fall into stereotypes. That being said, I have never had a threesome OTP before, but Jesus Harkness Christ, Peter/Elizabeth/Neal is the most adorable thing ever. Ever.
 
Modern Family is on the other end of the scale compared to White Collar. It is pure comedy with a heart. Every person involved  with the show is hysterical but loving. It's weird because there are stereotypes, blatantly, in the show but that's almost the point and it WORKS. The dynamics of the entire family portrayed is a miracle of silliness and true love. The eps are short at 20 mins roughly, but it's nice to have a show that is pure Fluff With Heart to watch compared to other shows available. Mitch&Cam with Lily = <3

Now, I need to go warm up and finish my workout before rewarding myself with a new show: Burn Notice. Thank you White Collar writers for being a gateway drug :P

I'll share thoughts about the MegaCon Weekend of Awesome and Win that's coming soon later :D

 I'm totally supposed to be writing a paper on the Hayes Code of 1933 in Hollywood right now. Bleh. That's boring. So instead I watched season 4, episode 15 of Heroes! It wasn't my plan to watch the ENTIRE episode in one go. I was going to use it as a reward for finishing my homework, but oh man was that a kick ass episode or what?!

Heroes 4x15 Pass/Fail )
/sigh ... Now I have to go write that boring paper. *rolls sleeves up* Come on, Hayes Code! I'm taking you back to 1966 and bringing you down Hollywood style :D ('66 is when the code was abolished in Hollywood, just so you're aware.)

Another productive spurt of energy used up which has ended with the reward of a warm bowl of delicious leftover noms and more clean dishes.

Funny story: in my drug induced floating around the house I swore to god someone was in my house with me. Speaking Spanish. I searched for a good 10 minutes, knife in hand, for anyone. Turns out my walls are a LOT less soundproof than I first thought, and my neighbors are having their yard ripped up and landscaped or something. I dunno. It's too cold, and I'm too sick to go investigate if any damage is happening to my own property.

I loled at myself a bit though.

More Heroes Babble!! )

God, last year was definitely not a good year for my characters.

No one die in '10 plskthxbai. (Roy, I'm looking at you, pal)

There is a LJ app! This is (limited in features) quite awesome because since I'm fighting this flu/chest infection/girly time you can imagine anything requiring me to get out of my nest on my couch is not happening. I did manage to get the dishes done so I can say something was accomplished other than breathing freely today.

God Bless Hulu )

OK! Let us see if this app really works.

Sweet Jesus Heroes is back on form!!

Look at this Carnie:


LOOK AT THIS CARNIE! 

I may have developed somewhat of a new love for a new character with Samuel. Whomever was the one to conceive his character needs major congratulations. Seriously. They single handedly saved the show from sucking. The way the plot is going it's letting the characters they are focusing on grow, making everything much more interesting. At the center of it all is Samuel. He is literally the Ringleader to this circus. I love him. Of course...it might be my not so-secret-epic-trenchcoat fetish. Really, his coat has nothing to do with it.

.....
Yeah, I didn't buy that line either ;)
