I am about to die

Okay, not really.

I am dead of tired, though. I forgot exactly how tough 6 hours of manual labor actually is. *falls over*

On an entirely different note, is anyone else watching Flashpoint? It's a cleverly written, realistic, painful yet hopeful procedural about a SWAT/hostage negotiation team. The quiet subtlety of the character work (much of it visual or with only a couple lines of dialogue) reminds me of old skool CSI, and the stories are fairly awesome, with an emphasis on a wide variety of human beings and their motivations and backgrounds. None of the over-emphasis on titillating sex, here; and sometimes the solutions are far stranger, or far more mundane, than one would think possible at the beginning.

I like this show.
