Please note: the show includes choice shots of Daniel Henney running, lifting weights, and COMING OUT OF THE SHOWER WITH A TOWEL ON. Yes.
Also, the other male lead, Seo Do-Young is soooo hot. Totally brooding and believable. It is AWESOME.
|See? Dreamy, right?|
You'd think I'd be in Heaven, but unfortunately, I'm actually super bored. No kickboxing, no writing, and no reading. Ugh. I hope I feel better tomorrow!
Last week, I was blowing through George R. R. Martin's A Storm of Swords. Then I reached 25% and hit my typical Wall (haha, get it? Like... the Wall in the books? Okay...anyway...).
Yeah, well. Sometimes I don't like real. Sometimes real is too real for me. I don't need to be reminded that people are selfish and mean and make bad decisions. I NEED to be reminded that they are capable of strength, resilience, kindness, forgiveness, and love.
So I'm on a Song of Ice and Fire hiatus until my curiosity takes over and I go back to those jerky, messy characters. I can't stay away forever.
Finally, last night I was watching Star Trek: The Next Generation with Curt. It goes without saying that both of us watched the show when we were kids. Also I wanted to be Captain Picard and even had his action figure until I got a little older and decided I had to be a girl character (wah waaah) so I was forever stuck between Crusher and Troi.
So, we're watching episode 69 which is called "Hollow Pursuits" and aired in 1990 (yes, I had to look that up). It's the first Barclay episode (groan) and there's a lot of creepy holodeck stuff going on, including one scene in which Barclay fights the Three Musketeers (Picard, Data, and La Forge). And in which Data looks like this:
Which made me wonder if this episode was actually the inspiration for V in V is for Vendetta (it's the gleaming, creepy skin tone in particular, I think):
That's it, you guys. After three days of doing almost nothing, my big thoughts are: 1. Daniel Henney is hot, 2. Seo Do-Young is also hot, and 3. Data dressed as a Musketeer = V.
And my brain power is all used up. Back to brain mush for me. Time for more tea, toast, and Spring Waltz...
