Well, I got my new chair Wednesday, and so far, it's not much better than the previous torture device. It's definitely kinder to my hip, no question, but my legs still get numb sitting for longer than five minutes. At this point, I just don't know what to do anymore. I spent so much money on this chair, I can't get rid of it (I can't afford anything else!), and I've been using the laptop in the living room for the book edits, but that isn't any better in the long run. My legs still get numb. The IT band on my left leg is making it nearly impossible to sit comfortably, even with the acupuncture, and I can't seem to stretch it back to normal. Last night I didn't get much of any sleep at all. I give up. At this point, between the arm pain and the leg pain, I can barely work, yet I've got more work than I've ever had at one time.

So, more meme.
Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)

I have all the episodes of The Pacific waiting to go, but for some reason, I just can't make myself watch it. Partly because I'm so effing busy OMG, but partly, I think, because I know it won't be as good as Band of Brothers, and you can't capture lightning twice (watch my tortured metaphors in awe!), so the things that were magical about BoB, I think, will feel really forced when pushed into another show from the same folks who made that one. And the parts I had the toughest time watching -- and still have a hard time watching -- in BoB will be similar to much of the story of The Pacific, by that theatre's very nature of combat. I've also got Defying Gravity, with Ron Livingston, waiting to go, so I have a feeling I'll try DG before TP, even.

Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale

I have to go back for my first entry in this meme, Now and Again. Because, I think, it was a hit and everyone assumed it would come back (fuck you to death, CBS), it had one of the hangeriest cliffhangers ever on TV. And we'll never know how it ended. The eggman had broken out of prison to get Michael, Michael had grabbed Lisa and Heather and run away with them, Dr. Morris was hot on their heels with an order to find them and probably kill them... crap crap crap. Now I'm freaking all out all over again.

SDWolfpup did a great meme about favorite actor roles, and she hit me with some incredibly wild names, so more on that later once I get some work under my belt.

The Pacific actually feels very different from Band of Brothers right from the start, so I don't think you'll spend too much time comparing them. It is structured so differently that you won't be as attached to specific characters (definitely not a group of them), and it has both more time dedicated to the men away from the war, and longer and more graphic combat scenes. It isn't any where near as good as Band of Brothers, but I definitely appreciate it as its own entity and am very glad that I have it.

As for Defying Gravity... I was just working on a post about that one. :P I was pleasantly surprised by DF. There is a truly ridiculous sex scene in the pilot, and there is too much relationship drama on the whole, but otherwise I really enjoyed it!
