Family Tree Fun: Just found out that there are four Grovers in my family tree. And that's just hunting through two lines.

New Phone Fun: I now have a Crackberry. That is purple. So I named it Evil!Kenseth. I could have opted for "Crown Royal was Jamie's sponsor last year" and named it after Jamie Mac, but I'm still saving naming anything after Jamie for the whole labrador retriever thing. (You know, get one yellow lab, one chocolate lab, name one Jamie and the other Elliott.)

Current TV Fannish Obsessions: Covert Affairs has caught on for me. Of course Merlin is still on the list. Leverage is still there as well. And Fringe of course. That's everything I got obsessed with this summer. LOL Four shows. I'm good! Wait, I forgot Rizzoli and Isles (Which is sad, cause I'm watching it right this second). Five!

In an effort to get back to posting more (and of a fannish nature), I'm doing the 30 days of TV meme.

30 Days of TV

Day 01 - A show that should have never been canceled

I'm sure everyone and their brother has said Firefly, but we got a movie, so I felt that we at least got something there. And Middleman is another recent show that I think of fondly and wish we could have had more, but it's a genre show that had quirk, and lord knows that quirk is rare to grab hold, plus add in genre, so I knew going in that the chances of it hanging on for long were slim.

So I'm going to go with Ugly Betty because I felt like it needed just one more season. They rushed the ending. Plus they had gotten the show back on track. And even if they kept things like they are now and jumped in and did a season of "Betty in London with Daniel", I'd be happy because I just want that wee bit more. (Plus, I'm a Daniel/Betty shipper, so I wanted more build up to his feelings. Whether she ever reciprocated them, I wanted that life change for Daniel, where his priorities shifted and it was more apparent. Not the rush of the last two eps.)

***

Leverage

God, that episode was nigh on perfect. I didn't realize there'd been something missing this season until that ep, because it was fun and the group was playing, and it wasn't all about Nate or Sophie (I'm sorry, but they're my least favorite characters, so all the highlight being on them makes for less enjoyable).

Plus there's all the joy of spoiler cut )

Now I must download a song. Although I'd prefer all three versions.

***

Merlin

For the record, I haven't watched repeats of Merlin since last week. And yet I'm having dreams about it. And Arthur. I kind of like that the show and character have taken over my brain, LOL. It's nice to have something you enjoy unconditionally.

***

NASCAR

I'm going to neglect to talk about anything to do with NASCAR or the Nationwide race or Brad Keselowski/Carl Edwards for several reasons (not the least of which is my triggery "Do not emulate Dale Sr." beliefs).

Let's just suffice it to say that there are right ways and wrong ways to get someone else out of your way for the win. I love Brian Vickers, but the one thing I never support is what he did to Mike Bliss in the Open several years ago. And if you're a driver that's displayed that you can do it right, doing it wrong just looks ten kinds of disrespectful to the sport.

1. Someone stole my doormat while I was at Wal-Mart.

2. My job is like teaching very large, very violent middle schoolers.

3. Mike's Hard Lemonade is my beer. And I'm drinking it right now.

4. Have now watched all of Leverage. Totally looking forward to Sunday night.

5. Bought a washing machine today. This is a huge thing for me. That's a major appliance!

6. Saw A-Team today as well. There's too much emphasis in the media on Bradley Cooper, when in reality, Sharlto Copley steals every scene he's in. (Plus, Face should always be clean shaven. I know one of y'all on here said the same thing, and you're right.)

7. NASCAR would be better if a) Denny Hamlin would just go away already and b) Jimmie took a season off. I want someone to dethrone Jimmie, but not Denny. Anyone but Denny.

Supernatural

DEAN HAD A RICHARD PETTY MATCHBOX CAR!!! OMG!!!!

We'll forgive him that it's Richard Petty, for one specific reason - today, trying to find a classic NASCAR Matchbox is probably hard. Especially a recognizable NASCAR Matchbox. From the right era to be Dean's from his childhood. So Richard Petty is okay. (Dale Earnhardt was a young up and comer and not driving the 3 then.)

Finally Found What Works

There's a guy at work who's interested in me. (Not an inmate. A coworker.) He's obvious about it, but he's patient and not pushy.

Folks, I initially freaked a little (a common reaction for me), but the freaking has gone away and now it's just...what it is. I'm okay. He's not moving fast (we're talking snail's pace here). He's not overly in my face. I don't want to date a coworker (someone I see 12 hours a day - the ones on other shifts I could handle), but I'm almost willing to give him a shot because I finally found someone who's willing to go at the pace that suits me. LOL

The Adventurous Eater

My family has decided that I'm the adventurous eater. (Which, okay, in my family I am, although my sister has become very adventurous herself.)

Last night's evidence that I'm "adventurous": I got flounder stuffed with crabmeat* for dinner. No one else had ever had that, or thought about getting it, so therefore I was adventurous.

There are no words for the logic in my family.

NASCAR

I love that for today's anthem, they got the Martinsville High School jazz band. You know they totally got out of class to play on national television, which is awesome for them.

Also, WHY THE HELL DOES REUTIMANN HAVE FACIAL HAIR????

Sick

Allergies are kicking my ass. My grandmother still thinks it's a cold. Either way, it doesn't matter - I feel like crap and sleep a lot. I'm avoiding other humans anyway, so it's not like it's in danger of spreading to others (at least, not that much of a danger).


* It was actually flounder with deviled crabmeat spread across the top. Very good, but not quite fitting the definition of "stuffed".

Big Bang Theory: Sheldon in a suit and/or with mussed hair is kind of hot. I don't know how that makes me feel. (Raj is still far more adorable.)

Reading: I've been reading way too many period romances of late. And they're all of Prinny's era. (Just...I need someone to tell me which freaking monarch that is.) I don't grab those on purpose. Honestly, I'd be happy with something piratey with a cabin boy that's actually a girl. It just seems that I keep grabbing books and they keep coming up with mentions of White's and Prinny and the ton. (I just ordered a bunch of freaking books.

That which is quickly becoming a pet peeve - when NASCAR stars claim Dale would have done something, without thought for ALL that Dale would have done.

Example:

1. "Dale would have taken out Brad for that incident as well."

Reality:

Yes, Dale would have. He also would have refused to lift to let Carl down in front of him. Because Dale Earnhardt Sr. owned his shit. The good and the bad. He had a horrible temper and did crap on the track that pissed people off. He raced hard. He was not some perfect demi-god that created the sport.

Oscars

I have reached a very important milestone with regards to the Oscars - I no longer care who was most deserving (although I will root against things I see as least deserving, i.e. Gwyneth Paltrow or rip offs of Fern Gully). I just want people to win that will give speeches that entertain me.

Notables:

1. I was sad that Gabby Sidibe didn't win. Because let's face it, her speech would have been epically awesome. There would have been tears. And giggling. And possibly, had Gerard Butler been giving the award, making out.

2. The guy who won for one of the screenplays was just so darling. By far my favorite speech of the night, because you could tell he was overcome with genuine emotion, not something scripted. (Although I did love Steve Martin's jab of "I wrote that for him" afterwards.)

3. I don't care what folks' opinions are of him...one of the best presenters of the night was Tyler Perry. I'm sorry, but if you're a freaking actor, there's no excuse for a bland, boring, dry, robotic presentation. Perry was having a blast and his timing was perfect.

4. What the heck was up with Tom Hanks just announcing who won best picture with no rundown (again) of who the nominees were? It was sudden and jarring and I think partially responsible for the fact that Kathryn Bigelow looked like she was going to throw up/pass out. Hell, I don't know how she made it back out on stage.

NASCAR

Apparently hell is freezing over, and the result is that, 9 years after his death, I'm becoming a fan of Dale Earnhardt Sr. (I accidentally typed that at first as Dale Earnhardt St. And laughed. Because to his fans, he was a freaking saint. An evil saint, but a saint nonetheless.)

And I blame the current crop of drivers who are either too politically correct or too self-centered while acting like their crap don't stink. But I really blame the drivers in this crop who pull the PC or self-centered deal when they've been driving for more than 10 years. Because let's face it, if you were around during Senior/Terry Labonte/Rusty Wallace's era of wrecking each other, then you've taken part in aggressive racing. So don't go telling guys coming into the sport that they're doing things wrong, because there is no right or wrong (well, there is wrong, but it's a lot harder to quantify than you'd think), there's only winning.

If everyone's thinking I'm sounding like a Keselowski apologista, well, here's the thing...I think I am. Wanna know why? Cause he owns that shit. And he doesn't get mad about owning that shit. He just does. And you know what? That's refreshing.

I don't mind the feuding (when there's reason for it, not just ire at a driver's fanbase*). I would love to see some of the guys get in fist fights again (except please everyone stay away from Matt, because I just don't see him being the knock down drag out kind). The key is, own your shit.

Examples of Owning Your Shit:

1. Carl Edwards v. Kyle Busch at Bristol a couple years ago. That was a racing fight (they both wanted the win, Carl booted Kyle out of the way for the win, Kyle took out his ire on the track away from competitors, Carl retaliated, they both acknowledged their actions post-race and owned that shit without apologizing). It was awesome. It was great. Kyle didn't expect Carl to own his shit, but Carl did, so it was all even and awesome.

2. Robby Gordon and everyone he's ever been mad at. Nuff said.

3. Juan Pablo Montoya pretty much all the time. He says it like it is, and you'll know if he's mad at you. Plus you'll know if he's really mad at you, because he'll take it out on you on the track. But he owns that shit.

4. Kyle Busch pretty much any time that doesn't include Junior. He drove like a bat out of hell and didn't apologize for it. (There hasn't been as much bat action in the last year and a few races. Not sure if it's due to maturity or bad cars, but the point is that it means less feuding if you're not being all bat out of hell anymore.)

5. Any driver that has ever been in a wreck, been mad about the wreck, then later in the race (or a few races later) lost the car just slightly and "accidentally" took out the other guy. And then batted their eyelashes innocently at the camera (with a sly smirk, or not if you're Junior, who just does the innocent routine, and yes, I use him as an example because he's my boy and plus he's perfected that form of retaliation) and left the reporter (and viewers) guessing as to whether it was intentional. Because that's owning that shit in a different way, but it's still owning the shit. The attitude is consistent throughout.

Examples of Not Owning Your Shit:

1. Carl Edwards v. Brad Keselowski this past Sunday. Yeah, I'm saying Carl didn't own his shit. Why? Because while you don't tip your hand to NASCAR brass (by saying "next time I'm near him, I'm going to totally wreck his ass"), you also don't sit there and be all pleasant and forgiving and then go and punt someone in a very obvious manner and be mad at them. You act pissed as hell from the get go (again, without tipping your hand - see Junior for how to execute this maneuver if you're a "nice guy" or Tony Stewart for tips if you're a "bad boy"). Carl did with Brad what Kyle thought he'd do back at Bristol - at one point in the feud he played innocent. But he didn't play innocent at the right point. He was too politically correct at the point when people would have understood him being mad. And then his anger after the wreck painted him in a bad light because Keselowski's car went airborne. I know it sounds like I'm being harsh on Carl here, and I do agree with his sentiment that taking it to Bristol would have been a bad idea, but here's the thing. Carl is the poster boy for public relations in NASCAR. Some would say Jimmie is, but he's too bland. Carl has the perfect image (the back flip is part of that image) and he was from the beginning very adept at working the media and that image. It took awhile for the veneer to crack for us to see that under the surface there's an edge. At the time he came into NASCAR, his image worked perfectly. Knowing what we know about him now, though, plus NASCAR allowing personality back into the sport, he needs to just own that he's a nice guy who gets pushed too far at times. I understand that, because I'm a nice person who can go from nice to infuriated-Tony-Stewart-on-roids in a heartbeat if the right buttons are pushed. Carl can own his shit if he acknowledges both sides of himself. And when you own your shit (which is individual), there is peace in the force.

2. Rusty Wallace versus everyone. Rusty didn't own his shit, he just whined because he felt he was entitled.

* Ire at a driver's fanbase is a direct jab at Kyle Busch. Cause he owned his shit except when he was getting into it with Junior. That was the fatal flaw to his earlier years in Cup. Because he owned his bad boy status for awhile, but when he got mad at Junior's fanbase (and I understand why, being a member of said fanbase, which makes me feel like beating someone over the head with a bat some days), it became a weird feud that didn't make any sense. Plus that whole feud still pisses me off because at the time I'd gotten past my Kyle Busch issues and was starting to root for him because he didn't apologize for who he was. And then he went and did something hair brained. And yes, I consider it hair brained to take on Junior Nation because every driver has a crazy portion to their fanbase. It's just that Junior's fanbase is way larger than anyone else's.

Something else I've decided: if Dale Sr. were alive today, Kyle Busch and Junior would be teammates. Also, Dale Sr. would have hired Keselowski at some point. Senior would have counseled Kyle on owning his shit early on.

Wrecking Competitors/Retaliation: The Rules

Now, the other part of Sunday's issues: retaliation. How to do it and when. This is keeping in mind that I think Brad was racing too hard too early in the race (because you can race hard and be ruthless and own your shit, but it does no good if you don't get to the finish line). And no, I don't think he lifted like he claimed. So this isn't about me being a Keselowski apologista. LOL

1. There are certain tracks you don't wreck anyone at intentionally, unless it's under caution: Daytona, Talladega and Atlanta. (Remind me if there are any other tracks that run as fast as those three. My brain is fried from night shifts.) As SOON as Carl wrecked Brad and Brad went airborne, I was yelling (in a whisper, as my grandmother was asleep) at the TV that you don't do that shit at Atlanta because the speeds are too high and high speeds plus this wing mean the car goes airborne too often. Yeah, Carl didn't know it would go airborne. Nor did he know that it would hit the wall at exactly the wrong spot so that the driver side of the car was crushed. But I do think that common sense should make it kind of obvious that the higher the speeds, the more likely the cars will get in really bad crashes. And really bad crashes can hurt people. M'kay?

2. You also don't retaliate on the track if you could potentially take out other drivers. Carl retaliated when it was just him and Brad right there, which is good. And he's right, at Bristol would be bad (but mostly because everyone would be really pissed and Carl would be a pinball in the machine for a few weeks *g*). So would Martinsville. Unless it was like Kyle and Carl did a few years ago at Bristol, which was retaliation on the track without endangering anyone else. Shall I repeat that one was awesome?

3. Never retaliate with the car while on pit road. Endangering pit crew members is a major no no.

4. Fist fights are always way more awesome than wrecking, though. Need more fist fights! (Note: this kind of retaliation can happen on pit road, but it should be noted that this puts one in proximity with officials (who cut down on our fun) and pit crew members (who have considerable more muscle than all the drivers). So if you want to really retaliate with a fist fight, we the fans would appreciate it if you'd do so in the grass after a wreck where we can see you and where it can't be broken up very quickly. M'kay?)

There'd be a fifth, but I think it's something that's just my personal preference (aka, possibly not a logical unspoken rule, even though it makes sense to me). This would be - don't wait to retaliate until the end of the race. This is different from two guys wrecking each other for the win - they're both in the same position. I'm talking about waiting until three laps to go. Carl was 154 laps down. It's entirely possible that once he got back on track, that was the first time he was near Brad and other cars weren't. (It's not like FOX ever showed much about the surrounding cars who weren't lead lap at that point. Yes, that irked me. Because regardless of what Carl says, they should have been anticipating retaliation. Bad FOX!) But three laps to go just feels like bad form, especially when it's clear that driver is very competitive that day. Yeah, they took you out and made you not competitive, but that's why you save it for another race - make sure the most perfect opportunity arises when you won't take out other drivers, where it's not too dangerous, and where you're not destroying a whole team's hard work that was paying off. See why I didn't give it a number there? Too much thought has to go into that. LOL

NASCAR Roast of Jimmie Johnson

I'm putting these here so I don't forget them EVER. That and they make plot bunnies go wild.

From Jeff Gluck's Twitter

Jimmie Johnson

Jimmie: "I know I've been pissing all you off the last four years, but I've never really been good at anything before."

The host just walked in and gave Jimmie a book: " #NASCAR for Dummies."

Jeff Gordon

Gordon, who has been target of gay jokes, tells Carl that getting married and having a kid is "a great cover." Pretty hilarious!

Jeff Gordon says he has a lot of JJ stories he can't tell b/c he's in a lot of them himself. JJ says, "These were all pre-marriage!"

Mark Martin

Mark Martin says he heard JJ was so ugly as a kid, he had to trick-or-treat by telephone.

Mark Martin gets to microphone and fan yells "Stand up!" Martin says, "I AM standing up."

Host says to Mark Martin, "I don't want to say you're too old to drive, but the pole-sitter of your first race was Ben Hur."

Greg Biffle

Biffle: "I'm not going to say a f@+#** thing about Jimmie because I'm sick and tired of hearing his name."

Host says Greg Biffle is "Al Gore minus the charisma." (Side note: Maveness will kick the butt of anyone who thinks Greg is without personality. He's dry! Dry I tell you! And he is LOVE.)

Denny Hamlin

Denny on JJ: "It's really hard to win the championship w/ the best team, the best crew chief and no mech. failures in 4 f@+#* years"

Denny on JJ: "The only thing faster than him is his receding hairline."

Kurt Busch

Kurt Busch says to Jimmie, "I go to Baskin Robbins and I look at vanilla and it says 'Jimmie Johnson' on it."

Carl Edwards

Carl says he's been out w/JJ a lot and knows he's not gay, "because he's only hit on me twice." Laughter erupts.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Host calls Dale Jr "the Paris Hilton of #NASCAR." Crowd hisses. And says Carl is the love child of Gov. Arnold and John Elway.

Brian Vickers

Vickers tells EVERYONE about Jimmie using Propecia and says he'd be bald otherwise! JJ is embarrassed.

Host to Vickers: "Red Bull gives you wings. It'd be nice if they gave you an engine too, huh?"

Juan Pablo Montoya

Juan Pablo Montoya to JJ: "I'm f*#@+@ tired of hearing 'Jimmie...Jimmie...Jimmie.' Give us a f+@#* break."

Ryan Newman

Ryan Newman to Jimmie: "Four in a row. Bet you wish you could do that with your wife, huh?"

Kasey Kahne

Host asks where Kasey Kahne is and says, "I didn't see you behind the grown-ups."

NASCAR All Star Race

I want a true NASCAR All Star race.

I want Jimmie Johnson in one of his cars from Charlotte. I want Jeff Gordon in T Rex. I want Awesome Bill in that million dollar winning car (or the one that set the track record at...hell, was it Dega or Daytona?). And if Dale Sr. were around, I'd want him in a clunker, because hell, the man did more with clunkers than anyone else.

That would be an All Star race to me - one that features not only the best drivers, but the best cars. Then we'd see what generation had it best.

NASCAR

So, something that just dawned on me.

Jimmie Johnson is being robbed of attention, because the big sports media outlets and other entertainment outlets tend to ignore NASCAR. For example, Sports Illustrated just tapped Derek Jeter as Sportsman Of The Year. Based on the fact that Michael Phelps got it last year, there's no reason Jimmie shouldn't have gotten it this year. (The comparison to Michael beating Mark Spitz's record is valid for what Jimmie did to Cale Yarborough's record.) Granted, I expect that of Sports Illustrated. If their website is any indication, NASCAR should be shoved under a rug.

But you know which NASCAR driver in the next few years is going to probably get more attention than Jimmie? Whoever dethrones him. Whichever driver stops the streak is going to get way more attention and adulation from fans and media because he was a giant killer. And this annoys me. While I want someone besides Jimmie and Chad to win, I also want them to be recognized for what they've achieved. And whoever the next person is, whether it's Mark Martin, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart or Jeff Gordon, they'll get more attention from non-NASCAR media because of what they do.
