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?

Oh, so pretty. The beading, as well.

I now have that episode saved on my Tivo. I've been looking for a Sean something (I'm trying to collect the whole cast), but on Miami he had, like, two scenes and raped a corpse, and that football movie took up two hours of space and he didn't look like himself. I really liked his role on Ghost Whisperer, though.

Something about Sean's recent appearances suggest that he's coming into his own--that something new is happening for him. He seems to be more and more "himself" (she says, as if she knows the guy). I though his performance in GW was excellent. He's more persuasive (physically) as a cyclist than as a football player; he's much more believable as a lover than as a criminal; and I liked how they paired him with a less-than-glamorous-looking woman, because it played down his own beauty and played up his expressiveness.

Such a fangirl.

inalasahl: I would really like to have been a fly on the wall when Sean Maher's agent called him to read for CSI Miami: "Sean, dollink! It's YOU!"

emeraldsedai: That "look who's got my heart!" face would make a great morph with River's "Talking to Miranda? As IF!" expression. That's my sister!

Hee! S/he probably told him he needed to do something "edgy" so he wouldn't get typecast.

No One Expects the Seanish Inquisition
In GW he was once again playing somebody very sweet who nevertheless considers blackmail One of His Three Weapons.

SM: Exactly WHAT is this part you're sending me to read for?
AGENT: It's...it's...a sort of Ghost Whisperer.

*dies* Stop that. I'm at work! I'm supposed to be looking bored, not giggling hysterically!
