For the record - the Patron Saint of Police Officers (and by extension, since that's the closest to my profession, correctional officers) is Michael.

My brain has decided that this means Dean is my patron saint (I refuse to let it be Adam, Dean was first). And therefore, I am awesome.

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

Dawn Ostroff on sixth season of Supernatural

That last bit nearly had me rolling. Really? More women are watching Supernatural than ever before?

Fixing My Shows

Accidentally on Purpose

1. Either really make James want to get back together with Billie, or ditch the character. This limbo he’s in makes no sense.

2. NEEDS MORE RYAN. Ryan is way more interesting of a buddy than Davis.

3. Either have Billie and Zack explore the idea of a relationship or don’t. But it’s hard to buy the idea that a smart, together professional woman (even when Jenna Elfman is good at playing the insecurities) would be interested in more than a one night stand with Zack, even with how hot he is and the proximity.

American Idol

1. Unfortunately, go back to 12 guys, 12 girls. Because the main viewership for this show is female and a large portion are stupid and choose looks (and guys they love to drool over) over talent (and women with talent).

2. Bring back the wild card round the way it existed in seasons two and three.

3. Really explore some theme weeks that haven’t been done ten million times and still provide good song choices.

America’s Next Top Model

1. An all male cycle.

2. Fire everyone who’s been there for more than three seasons, including Tyra. They need fresh perspective and fresh ideas for shoots.

3. Place less emphasis on Cover Girl. They do next to nothing for Cover Girl after the show is over. Screw Cover Girl and start using some sponsor that’s far more high fashion. It mixes up the formula and doesn’t allow the girls who are commercial to skate for so long. Plus it puts an emphasis back on things like runway.

The Big Bang Theory

1. More Raj. Lots more Raj. TONS more Raj.

2. That’s all.


1. More Clark Edison. He’s my favorite of the non regulars and must be used more.

2. A little more consistency on the show. They seem to be missing details in episodes that are back to back, which is just laziness.

3. The cases they investigate are all a little too easy. I want one that’s not Gormaggon level of hard, but takes an extended episode arc to delve into.


1. Alexis at the station more than just in the evidence room cataloging. Can’t you just see her someday becoming a cop?

2. Ryan and Esposito need more face time. For they are funny.

3. Back off the “Castle and Beckett are totally into one another” bit and let that just grow on its own for awhile. Nathan Fillion is awesomely magnetic. Just let the actors play off one another without pressure and see where it heads.


1. Put it back on my TV!

2. Get the schedule worked out so that Anna Wu gets to come back.

3. Tons of Casey back story. For Casey is love.

Criminal Minds

1. Yes, I’m new to this show, but I’m getting caught up very quickly. And my heart wants Morgan and Garcia to declare their love for one another, okay?

2. Fewer serial killer cases, more cases that are serial rapists, etc. I have a hard time believing there are that many true serial killers out there. It’s a little more believable if they spread out the types of unsubs their after a bit more.


1. Keep in mind that Catherine is the lead CSI, not Ray, so give Catherine more. I love Laurence Fishburne, and he fits perfectly with the team, but the producers seem to be focusing on name recognition and not who all naturally is leading.

2. Keep up the new season dynamic where there’s logical, natural friction and the personalities are present. I’ve missed that.

CSI: Miami

1. Use some actual science? Please?

2. Walter should have a greater role and be on there all the time. For he is awesome.

3. Kill Horatio. You know that makes the most sense.

Flash Forward

1. No more Fiennes. Or reduce the character’s role. I swear, he’s annoying as hell.

2. In fact, just move this show along more quickly. The problem I’ve found is that every character is interesting for about two episodes, then they delve into them more and by episode three of their arc they’re annoying as hell.


1. I hate to say it, but fire everyone and cancel the show. I miss Kutner, the stories are contrived, and I can’t figure out why I’m still watching.

How I Met Your Mother

1. I actually recognize that there’s some little thing that needs fixing, but I’m not sure what.

Law and Order: SVU

1. Needs more Ice T. Seriously, he should be the lead. Or at least the lead for now, because they’ve exhausted everyone else emotionally.

2. Also could use a side of Coco. (You know Coco would be an awesome addition. Admit it.)


1. Sam and G admit their love for one another. *g* Or have to pose as a couple. I’ll go with posing.

2. All Hetty, all the time.

So You Think You Can Dance

1. Less emphasis on contemporary, more on ballroom. The problem with the show now is that they put tons of pressure on all the dancers that aren’t contemporary. Contemporary has the training that allows for them to more easily adapt to other styles. Therefore, if they’re going to put tons of contemporary dancers in the top 20, they need to have less contemporary and more ballroom/latin to truly challenge the dancers.

2. Bring back a fourth rotating judge. We need a set of fresh eyes each week.

3. Do something to challenge the choreographers, like by choosing the music for them. I’ve not been pleased with some of their music choices, because it affects the dance. Either there’s too much emphasis on current, or they go for indie that isn’t that spectacular. But most importantly, they aren’t going outside the “popularity” box to get songs that challenge them and tell a story. The Flower and the Hummingbird excelled because it could have been anything with that music. We need more of THAT.


1. Female regular who isn’t attracted to Sam or Dean, or they to her. She kicks ass and takes names. She’s a hunter. And most importantly, she drives a badass pick-up and has a not so secret crush on Bobby.

Ugly Betty

1. I’ll be in the minority here, but find a way to make Daniel/Betty work.

2. Lose Betty’s braces already!

1. Harry Potter: If you love me, you'll rec me some Ron/Hermione fics.

2. So You Think You Can Dance: Last night's ep was Hines-tastic. I so love tappers. And honestly, it's one of the few forms of dance that feels gender neutral. Bianca, Ryan and the new guy all have their own styles in tap, but there isn't something inherently girly or masculine about any of them.

3. Supernatural: SPN TONIGHT!!!!! *glee*

4. Caffeine Withdrawal: Had nothing caffeinated on Tuesday or Wednesday. Am drinking a Coke right now as I woke up with a headache. Of course, that could have been from all the sleeping (two hour naps on both days without, plus at least 10 hours' sleep each night), but either way, I don't do migraines. I can go back to no caffeine tomorrow. One Coke every three days is way better.

5. Lasik: Have an appointment for a lasik consultation next Wednesday. 90 minutes of eye dilation fun.

6. Chester: Finally, a picture of him minus hair. Sadly, the picture doesn't do the lion cut justice. Just remember, he went from hair that was about three inches long at its shortest to a foot long at its longest to this ).

7. NASCAR: So there's a BBSadler on the way. I've got money on it being a girl, because then we'll have to have a BBMcMurray and lord knows a boy would be lost on Jamie. So it would be funny if there was a baby boy McMurray.
I think there should be True Blood/Supernatural crossover fic. Preferably with Dean being impressed by Eric and Eric being amused by Dean. Nothing necessarily slashy, just lots of amusement.

And I need an Eric icon. Alexander Skarsgard is starting to own my soul. I actually challenged a friend tonight with "Eric or Dean. You can only have one."

Just have to say, I am LOVING the new Supernatural spoiler.

This may be because I trust Kripke completely on it. And where he'll go. And what he'll do. And quite honestly, it's the most transparent thing ever. But who cares when you're given a gift horse? I'm not looking it in the mouth.

(Spoilers in comments. You've been warned.)

Due to a rewatch of Supernatural from this past week, a few theories. [ profile] bubblesbrnaid already wrote it, so I'm just linking to what she wrote (since we discussed this stuff already).

Old Enochian stuff right this way

Also, speculation for future dealings between Dean and Sam.

(I'll potentially write something more coherent tomorrow. I have a headache and have been fighting sleep all day.)

So. Things.

1. I need to get a photo editing type software on my laptop soon, because I need to make icons! I do! I do like whoa! (I love procrastinating and ignoring the real world through crappy icon making.)

2. Was pondering something related to Supernatural and came to this conclusion about the second most scary of the Big Damn Spoilers that came out a while back. (Not the one that caused everyone to be pissed as hell and threatening to quit the show.) Spoiler speculation )

3. May be getting sick. Took Benadryl for the runny nose last night. Nose is also raw today. And I'm drinking water like crazy. Fun part was waking up with a headache. Did the smart thing and took some meds for that...which made me nauseous. Yep. That's my reality.

4. After describing my senior prom dress to someone the other day, I was told "OMG, you dressed up like Molly Ringwald!" In hindsight, I kind of did. Even though I hadn't seen "Pretty in Pink" then. Pink satin and pink lace? Yep. Although in my defense, the dress was more the color of Marilyn Monroe/Madonna's "Diamond's Are A Girl's Best Friend"/"Material Girl" dress.

5. It's kind of frightening that I can now identify most of the birds that come to my bird feeder. The mourning dove, cardinals and robins aren't a surprise, but the dark eyed junco and brown thrasher? Those are very new ones to me.

6. I have to get together one more bit of information for a job application. I'm hoping that this one will lead somewhere. The good thing is, I get the vague impression that hopefully it will at least lead to an initial interview, which is good, because it's the one place I wanted to be interviewed at.

7. NASCAR: Truck race and Nationwide race Total Kyle Busch domination. So with that said, everyone does realize that Kyle will not stand a chance today, correct? In fact, I'm predicting a win by Kevin Harvick. Just because. *g*

Random Supernatural observation:

You know, all these houses appear to have really freaking big closets.

Also, that's considering some of these are *old* houses.

(The joys of watching season one right now - I'm seeing patterns that are hard to note when you're watching an ep a week.)

1. Presidential Photo Op: It pays to know what sign you're throwing there, Mr. President.

2. NASCAR Testing Insanity: As of Jan. 1, there will be no testing for 2009 at NASCAR sanctioned tracks. None.

3. Supernatural Preview For Next Week: No link, but I'm already drooling. A lot.
