Not Much Going on at All

The two main BitTorrent websites were off-line today, which was a pain, because I really needed to download theis week's Angel. Otherwise, I don't get to see it for real until Friday. Fortunately, I found the torrent on IRC, and it is downloading as I write this.

Last night I downloaded the first episode of Dick Wolf's version of Dragnet. Ed O'Neill is Joe Friday, and it's kind of odd having him there instead of Jack Webb.

Friday (talking about evidence left behind by a possible serial killer): Pre-mature ejaculation?

Smith (Ethan Embry): Yup, we've got a squirter.

Me: Holy mother of god.

Got my hair cut today for the first time since sometime in October. I was really getting pretty shaggy there.
