|10:09 am - NaNo, CSI, and LOST|
My NaNo count is now: 9789 words. Almost 10,000! Which is almost...1/5 of the count I need. However, every day I write more, which is all to the good. Perhaps I'll catch up this weekend.
And now that you're behind the cut, I'm not going to talk much about the fun they're having with the emotional fallout of the death of a cop, or Brass being devestated, or whether Sophia may be at fault.
I'm going to ask WTH?!
Why did you grow that mustache? Is this a "Nick is moving on from his old self" thing? If so, I understand, but please get over this quickly and shave. Even Warrick is teasing you about it.
When you wear protective goggles, it makes you look like Groucho Marx.
Much love and entreaties,
I really didn't see that coming. I thought it would be a semi-fakeout, that Cindy was the death the previews promised.
Ah, Shannon. She strained towards being more than she was, at last, and nearly reached her goal. "Almost gallant," yahtzee63 said in her review, and I think that's a perfect phrase.
Now she and Boone are both dead, and by that fact I am strangely weirded out. Is the goal of all the self-revelation on this island death? Or does it just demand death as sacrifice to usher in new plotlines.
I am, in fact, rather cross that we will now never have more Shannon backstory.
Also, can't wait to see how they save Sawyer. Even taking dehydration, effort, and blood loss into account, it's been three days since he was shot, and there's been plenty of time for that infection to go systemic (which is what it looks like it's done, to me). Ana-Lucia should be right when she says, "He's already dead."
Current Mood: indescribable

Just picture a marathon runner entering the mountain terrian, and you've got me. :-P
Congrats on nearly breaking the 10000 word mark. Go you! Did I tell you I read your prologue? Which btw...ROCKS!???
I liked Lost too. Wasn't sure if Shannon should have died yet...I'll be real upset if Sawyer dies because he's cool. It is a little wierd that they'd kill off both Shannon and Boone though. Hmm.
CSI rocked and I agree with you about Nick's stash. It's just ew. The ep was great. High tension...wanted more Griss though, and what the heck happened out there? It's intriguing. Maybe they'll get rid of Sophia who bugs me...

Whee! It is a good mark to hit--just wish I was more on track. Glad you read the prologue and liked it. I like it too. I really hope I can keep it once I finish this thing and start revising it. :-)
Yeah, I don't think they're going to kill Sawyer. Which is a good thing. But I still don't quite know how they're going to believably save him. Jack doesn't have those kinds of heavy-duty antibiotics, unless they're in the hatch (possible).
I agree with you about the great high tension going on with CSI right now. The plot isn't working out badly either (oh boy, do I have a couple of paranoid theories, lol). I don't think they're going to get rid of Sophia (I occasionally hear spoilers), but I do wonder if something big is going to happen with her or Brass. Hmmm...
Yeah i was wondering about Brass, with how they shot his interrogation scene? Intriguing!!!
I wanna hear your paranoid theories! I've only see 3 eps this season so I'm probably a little behind with some stuff. I'm gonna have to tape it next week now...

Paranoid theories, okay!
--Given that someone else shot the suspect at the end of the episode, and that the car with the armed baddies deliberately intercepted a patrol car and initiated a shootout, I'm really wondering if there's a plot going on in that community--maybe a version of that woman getting Warrick to grab her arm so she could shout "police brutality".
That's really paranoid, I know.
--I also wonder, if Sophia didn't shoot Officer Bell, who did? And wondering if there's a dirty cop around somewhere, or one who owed somebody $$, or something....
--There's been a spoiler floating around, that one of the cast gets "buried professionally" as a result of this episode. I hope to goodness it's not Brass. Sophie is okay as characters go (and the actress did a hell of a job this time), but I would desperately miss my Brass. Other thoughts include Grissom, but that assumes he does something out of line (wouldn't be the first time) and that Ecklie's still looking to bury him, which I'm not convinced is so.
Random, and not necessarily having anything to do with what will happen next week! But hey, you asked.... :-)
::Hides eyes from spoilers::
Very good about your NaNo. Keep up the good work!
