Opinions on whatever I happen to have read, watched, or listened to recently.

I probably wouldn't have bothered watching the premiere of ABC's new cop show, Castle, if it didn't star Nathan Fillion, but I'm glad I did.
While at it's heart, Castle is a police procedural show like so many others, it's twist is interesting enough that I'm looking forward to the next episode. In the show, Fillion plays Rick Castle, best selling author of books along the lines of James Patterson's Alex Cross series (in fact Patterson did a special guest spot with Stephen J. Cannell where they joined Castle for a poker game).
When someone starts using his books as a roadmap for murder, Castle is brought in to help solve the mystery. Along the way he meets detective Bennett, played by Stana Katic and discovers in her the perfect heroine for his next book series.
Fillion and Katic have an interesting chemistry, I'm not sure if I believe I love story is right for them or not, but I'm looking forward to seeing how the relationship grows.
I'm human, so I've got some issues, but all things considered I guess I'm reasonably normal. My parents are still married. My best friends are my sisters...okay, so I'm normal for the 1850's whatever. I'm opinionated and nerdy. I'm walking the line between tweener-style pop culture love (witness my ever-burning New Kids love and inexplicable Twilight obsession) and elitist culture snob (I can't seem to get enough 19th century British Lit and historical biographies) but, after 30 years, I'm finally learning not to give a crap what anyone else thinks about me. Oh, and those are my feet in the picture. The socks were made by a friend.
