The Dark Emerald Bead-O-Meter

4832 / 8,534
(56.0%)


The Zokotou word meter seems to be broken, but Beading Serenity crept past the halfway point today as I listened to James Marsters read me the last bit of Storm Front by Jim Butcher. (It got better toward the end.)

Then I moved on to Dirt Music by Tim Winton (read, I'm pretty sure, by the author), a wonderfully-written contemporary Australian novel that wedjateye sent me.




Step back and squint--I think you can still make out the Serenity design. I'm into the second Chinese character now, and using lots of 18-karat gold-plated beads in the background.



In other news, I sort of enjoyed Sean Maher's guest stint as a ghost on The Ghost Whisperer last night. He does up-close and emotional quite well. Also? Sneering disdain. Looks good in bike gear. The funniest part is his reaction to seeing the oh-so-ordinary-looking guy who received his donated heart.



Kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?



Ooh. Go, Sean.



"That's him? That schlub got my perfect, athletic, prematurely dead heart?"



Sometimes you feel like you're looking at the real Sean.


It's an unoriginal, predictable show, but it wasn't as bad as I expected it to be--the acting was good and the dialog almost fresh, with some interesting direction. But seriously: dead guy, organ donor, grieving fiancee, heart recipient...what do you think is going to happen?

1. On Beaded Serenity: you go, girl!
2. WHERE did you get the caps? I've been clicking like a mad thing since Friday looking for them.
3. Well, actually since most of his bits were given away I was expecting the gal to track them all down and get it on with all of them. Or Photographer Guy to be able to see SM's character's ghost and yell, "Hell with THIS! I'm gonna DIE!"
4. For a while I was wondering how she could afford to not work for a whole year but then I figured between the little kid's parents' homeowner's insurance carrier and the triathlon organizers' insurance it would be one bitch-kitty of a wrongful death suit. And he seemed like the kind of person who would have a double-indemnity life insurance policy anyway.

Re: Breaking the Waves
Gotta say, you gave that episode of lightweight television a lot more thought than I did: I didn't get farther than, "How come the champion triathlete is the only one in the bike race wearing long pants?" and seriously started wondering if Sean's legs are somehow less wonderful than the rest of him.

I have the whole ep digitally. Tell me what you want capped and I will supply.

Re: Breaking the Waves
I can sort of see the point of long pants in any sport where falling off things is a known hazard (even though it usually isn't fatal).

I remember thinking in Objects in Space that his legs looked quite nice (and rather furry, when he was having the bullet taken out).

Oh, thank you so much! Maybe one of those maximum-eyelash yearning profile shots from the end?
