You Know...
I really need to stop having opinions just to have opinions. That is, it's not that I don't *have* those opinions, but it occurs to me that I play the same game that the BTS did. I get awfully self-righteous, and vocal, but I somehow think mine sound less bitchy, or are less hurtful, because I usually phrase them in a way that doesn't sound directly insulting. I play the clever words game as much as the nastiest flamer, and I fancy myself better than them because I don't insult people's appearance or speculate on their relationship with their dogs.

Pah. In other words, I sometimes find myself ranting purely because I hope someone will admire the cleverness of my rant. It's not that I don't agree with the things I'm saying, but they're seldom as important as I make them seem.

I don't like that trait in me. That attention seeking behavior.

In other news, BtVS has a cast of actors so friggin beautiful it almost hurts to look at them. Did you know that? Beautiful People from tonight's episode. Not at all spoilery, unless you haven't read the guest star list in TV Guide. Just familiar faces.

*g*
These are fairly good reasons to consider yourself better than them! As for the attentionseeking-- honestly, is there anyone on LJ that that doesn't apply to, a bit? Any writer? Any person online? Any person in the whole world who's not a goshdarned Buddha? I was wondering about that myself, but I think the answer is no.

in other news... saw this in the paper and thought you might be interested...

new web based dr who series, running for 12 weeks, a new ep once a week, starting at noon (gmt) tomorrow here. it's going to be part comic strip, part audio drama including the voices of sylvester mc coy, and stephen fry.

no idea if it's going to be any good or not, but at the very least it should be interesting. ;-)

Meh. My firewall won't let me use RealPlayer, for some insane reason. Have to try it from home, with the crappy 42bps connection. Wah.
