Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.

Your breath moves the moon.

So, my roommate is a wonderful person with a lot of good qualities.  Understanding computers isn’t one of them.  We were talking about computers and how they work today, and she mentioned that she believes that the computer screen works because of Gremlins who hold up signs.  And laptops?  Laptops are run by anorexic gremlins holding up signs.

I love my roommate.

Now, when I went back to Florida this past December, my brother (the wonderful soul that he is) got me hooked on Studio 60 and the Sunset Strip.  Since my television is good only for watching movies, I rely instead on the wonderful powers of online episodes to get my fix.  These are hosted on the site for a few weeks, before they vanish into the ether.  Now, I'm sure that I could look up and find out when the next episode is going to be aired, but it's amusing to me to check back in on the site every now and again, just to see if they've updated (which they haven't for a few weeks, the bastards).  While there, I stumbled across the first full episode of Thank God You're Here (which I posted about awhile ago.  I wouldn't find the link, but I don't really care).  Now, it's actually supposed to air tonight at 9pm, so I don't know if someone just messed up or what, but it's online.  Because I like to share my thoughts with people, I will be doing much the same as I did for the Oscars and liveblogging these (meaning that I'll update this periodically, as watch).  Yes, it's all under the cut to save your flists.

So, without further ado, I present the first episode of Thank God You're Here

Which Could Never be as Great as Whose Line ) Watch it online. Skip to the parts you want. Ignore the rest. I'm going to bed now, good night, and good luck.

I don't read Esquire.  Hell, it's only in the vaguest sense that I'm even aware that said magazine exists.  But when [personal profile] kaiz posted a link to The Napkin Fiction Project, I had to check it out.  The basic gist of the project is that they sent out 250 napkins to various authors, asking them to write on them and send them back.  Well, they did, and it spurned ideas in me.  I don't know if either of these will actually come to fruition, and am looking for thoughts/ideas/interest.

Idea Number One:  Meet the Author
    In which fanfiction authors show us their napkins.  Drabbles, rough drafts, short hand, doodles, cross outs, the whole nine yards.  I don't write a lot by hand, but when I do, the paper is generally covered with notes, and doodles that have little to do with the topic.  I think it would be pretty cool to see some of your work, before it becomes the pretty version we see online.

Idea Number Two: The Correspondence
    In which the character's talk to each other through napkins.  I'm thinking specifically of the Whose Line guys currently, because that seems to be what I write most in.  Say, while Colin and Brad are on tour, they go out to a bar and Colin gets an idea that he just has to share with Ryan.  He writes it down and mails it off.  Ryan responds on his own napkin, and soon the rest of the guys are joining in.  Snark, joke ideas, and graphic doodles ensue.

Either of these sound good, things you might be interested in participating in or reading?

Watching the before thing with the Rivers, does anyone else think they should put Joan with her daughter wherever the daughter was, and just let Greg free on the stars?  It would be better, so much more amusing.

You're Element is Night. You're a loner who is very
creative but never show your work to anyone.
You may smile a little but sadness or
loneliness surround you and other can feel it
when they're near you. You have a dark or
unusual beauty that makes you mysterious and
you probably have a lot of secrets that you've
never told anyone. You're beauty is intriging
and unorthidox but the real thing that makes
you special is your eyes. Something in them
makes them like Diamonds in the Rough.

You're Cat's Cradle!

by Kurt Vonnegut

You believe quite firmly that free will deserted you long ago and far
away. As a result, it's hard to take responsibility for anything. Even though you show
great potential as a leader of a small 3rd world country, the choices are all made ahead
of time. You're rather fond of games involving string. Your fear of nuclear weaponry is
trumped only by your fear of ice.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

I fear ice? Since when?
