Can someone spare me a few IQ points? Brain cells? Anyone?

I seem to have misplaced my brain at one point or another during the Christmas season. Seriously. I'm not even tempted to pick up a book at the moment. All the oh-so-profound entries I intended to write, on hiatus, evaporated. I'm tired of words, finding the right expressions, of expressing anything at all. I don't want to talk to customers or co-workers, I just want silence. (I also make about ten times more typos than usual, but I'm still anal about spell-checking, so this isn't really noticeable.)

Instead, I watch Farscape, contentedly (well, almost) and mindlessly staring at the screen, because, oh, pretty!. Which is so, so wrong, and really, so not me. I was supposed to be mostly asexual. No other tv show, movie, anything that I really liked was ever about the characters' looks. Then again, I'm not even sure I like Farscape or any of its characters, but I certainly haven't tired yet of watching Aeryn, oh, walk across a room.

On the more irritating side: Something that I could, if my brain were actually working, describe much more eloquently and lengthily (is that even a word?), but seeing as it doesn't, will be called the 'Look! Big Emotional Moment! *fingerpoint*' technique of acting & directing.

[I don't understand the comparison between Farscape and B5 at all; B5 may not be so pretty and stylish, but the writing is so far superior it doesn't even bear comparison.]

Also, changed the layout to something more season-appropriate. It started to feel positively obscene to look at all that lush green.

*likes the layout*

You know, prettiness-ogling is not so bad... I know it's all I am doing these days. Only I am more pathetic, because I am ogling a 1960's boyband and slashing them. Oy.

BUt... what if I never have another intelligent thought in my life? ;)

As for the boyband slash... RPS was how I stumbled into the whole slash fandom in the first place, about five years ago. I'm not sure what, if anything, that says about our respective patheticness (or lack thereof), but if it makes you feel better...?

It does. Shared patheticness (or lack thereof), especially with someone I like, always makes me feel better :-)

Intelligent thought is overrated anyway :P Not that I think you lost it, but, you know, a little vacation now and then to the land of flat EEG is not so bad either...
