What are you watching on Netflix?

I just watched Into the Woods, which is currently streaming on Netflix! Get your fill of Broadway awesomeness, complete with Bernadette Peters.

My food groups are cheese, bacon, and hot tea. I like studying cities and playing with my cat, Buffy.

I made it through the entire interview process for this job I really want. Yesterday I got called for the final interview + site visit and set it up for Wednesday. Yesterday my father came down with the flu. Now my nose won’t stop running, my head feels like it’s going to explode and my throat feels scratchy. If I don’t get this job because I can’t go to the interview tomorrow, I may never forgive that man. (FYI: He keeps double-dipping spoons into things I’m making on the stove, using both bathrooms, won’t just stay in his room and lays all over the house, etc.) Am nervous as hell right now.

Right now I’m watching Lost Girl, which is actually entertaining – I expected to cringe and roll my eyes a lot but it’s not exploitative (with the bi-sexual succubus as a main character that’s saying something) and they actually did a bit of their myth homework (I’m still amazed they got kappa’s right – for reals).

I’ve also started rewatching Alias. I did not realize that they mentioned Rimbaldi in, like, the third episode. I thought that crazytown came a lot later. I felt like I needed to start a drinking game right then and there. Could see the twinkle in Sloan’s eye when he mentioned that name…

I’m about halfway through season four of Battlestar Galactica. And have convinced myself that I’m the final Cylon every time I start thinking or humming “All Along the Watchtower”.

I was sent home early (my boss waved his can of lysol in my direction) because my probably-allergies-possibly-sick self couldn’t manage to do my damn job. Too many sneezes and watery eyes and trying not to drip or sneeze on people or merchandise. If I am still very congested and miserable in the morning, I will call out (which I have not done, and have worked for this boss for nearly six months).
And I am tired, unicorns.
