What's the Frequency?

I downloaded the Global Frequency pilot, which was based on a Warren Ellis comic I knew nothing about, and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Part of it had to do with the presence of Michelle Forbes, whom I have loved since her days as Ro Laren, but the story itself was just... neat. I liked it a better than pretty much anything I'm watching regularly, which is a true shame, because the WB decided not to pick it up. Bother.

Spent the weekend holed up in ther A/C for the most part. I did do some yardwork, and the laundry, but most of the time was spent playing Civ III. An odd thing happened last night. I got a good night's sleep for a change, with dreams and everything. The main dream was a remarkably coherent dream about the neighborhood around my old apartment, complete with Buffista friends, firemen, bikers, and a crazy man living in the little house next to the railroad who was charging a toll to let people cross the tracks. (I said it was coherent. I didn't say it made sense.)
