Today we are supposed to get a LOT of rain. The eye of Hurricane Irene is basically supposed to pass over my town, which is kind of entertaining; I wonder if we'll be able to notice it? I have never been in a hurricane like this before, so it should be cool. (Hopefully, we WILL notice it, so that we can go for a walk at that exact moment—because I expect that being cooped up inside all day is going to drive me mad, very quickly, and I might start to throw things and yell.)


Natterings on River. Spoilers. )

It was definitely a wonky episode, and they really accelerated the River storyline; not sure whether that was good, but it was funny.

Natterings on Rory. Spoilers. ) 

The Hermit, the Moon, the Tower, and I all went to walk around the brook yesterday. Because of the hurricane, they must have opened some dams downstream or something, because the water level was so low that there practically wasn't any more water. It was a bit of a let-down in terms of the scenery, but gave us plenty of opportunities to discuss the impending hurricane. I confess I am not terribly worried. Sure, rain, wind, probably some power outages; but I am not expecting a three-day catastrophe, which seems to be what the Hermit and the Moon predict. They do live kind of far out, so if they lose power it's bound to be a much bigger deal than if I do, stuck in town as I am; but I would be surprised if they couldn't go to work tomorrow, for instance. At any rate, I don't have much of an appreciation for weather.

In which I complain. )

Done for stupid touchy-feely stuff.
Yesterday, the Hermit and the Moon and I all attempted to go blueberry picking, but we were thwarted by thunder (and, eventually, rain). The rain only lasted for a few minutes, but it was pretty impressive when it happened—and the wind made a tree crack outside, it was blown to the side so much.

Luckily, though, the rain managed to actually reduce the humidity, for once; so this morning, it was much more pleasant outside.

Last Friday, I watched Suits and Burn Notice. I'm not sure why I like Suits, except that Mike Ross is hilarious, and how he's being a lawyer because he's good at it, but isn't going to let Harvey make him a douchebag in the process. (Or at least, so far ... I would not be in the least surprised if Mike has to make some serious, douchy decisions in the season finale.) I don't really like how every other girl seems to fall head over heels for him (except Zoe—er, Jessica!). I'm not so sure I really understand Harvey, though—for some reason I find it jarring whenever he starts quoting movies, like that's supposed to make him seem younger and all buddy-buddy with Mike. Maybe it's because I don't actually know most of the movies they quote, and also don't know the age demographic that typically watches them—maybe Mike having memorized The Godfather says more about Mike than it does about Harvey? I dunno.

Anyway ... Burn Notice isn't really grabbing me any more. It's still funny, but the plot just isn't there. Agent Pearce is kind of cool, and I'm glad that Jesse got to stick around, but the show just moves too slowly for me. NOTHING EVER CHANGES IN MICHAEL'S LIFE. That's not technically true, but aside from doing odd jobs for the same person over and over again, Michael's life seems pretty much just like it was in seasons 1, 2, and 3. I'll probably keep watching it for a while (especially now that they have upped the episode count for the current season!), but I doubt I'll be devoted.
