And today, in the spirit of randomness, my answers to a set of questions from [ profile] isiscaughey

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

According to this morning's Washington Post, Martha Washington was hot, and George was kind of a hunk.

I kid you not. They know this because of science.

It feels like this has been an extrememly long week for some reason. Maybe because I haven't been sleeping enough, but you'll have that. The weekend is finally (almost) here, though (not quite, cause I'm at work for another hour), and I've got plenty of reasons to be excited (other than being easily excitable).

Tonight is the season finale of Moonlight, and there's a new episode of Battlestar Galactica for my Kara and Laura fix. Afterwards, I'm going to see Prince Caspian with friends. The Narnia books are some of my all time favorites, and the movie looks awesome.

Tomorrow is the Turkey Creek Festival. [ profile] d4ni and I have no idea what it is, but it's at the park a couple blocks from our apartment. We know there is a parade involved. Basically, it promises to be amusing (either amusingly lame or legitimately fun, though probably the former). And Saturday night there's new Doctor Who!

Today is the end of finals week, so there have hardly been any people in the libary all morning. It's eerily quiet. I did some shelving (which was actually okay, cause it was the lit section, so the books aren't ten pounds each and actually look interesting), then spent a quality hour cleaning all the keyboards. YUCK! I now never want to use public computers ever again and have thouroughly rid my hands of all forms of bacteria. Sweet. At least I got paid today, so it (kind of) makes up for it.

In this morning's news, the International Association of Athletics Federations has ruled that double amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius is eligible to run in the Olympic Games. I'm impressed by anyone who can run that fast, let alone a man with two prosthetic legs, so I'm glad they're letting him compete. (Also, I think discrimination against the disabled justified by science is still discrimination.) I honestly don't think runners are going to start amputating limbs to get prosthetic ones, and I think critics who cite that as a potential problem are vastly underestimating the stigma attached to disability that would prevent people from doing so.

Elsewhere in the world of sports, Speedo is involved in a monopoly suit. Supposedly their new full body suit could monopolize the competitive swimwear market. Now, I don't care if full body swim suits can shave off a few seconds of time, I'm still against them. Why? Swimmers have some of the fittest bodies ever and it's significantly less fun to watch men's swimming if they're completely covered up.

There are several official media outlets that post videos on YouTube. Often, they're short clips of shows. Someone at CBS, however, actually gets YouTube, as evidenced by the videos for the show Moonlight. There are the usual clips from the show, but along with those there are recaps, added scenes, and even Mick/Beth music videos. (Yes, they've actually posted officially sanctioned shippy music videos. I love it!) And in keeping with the random spirit of YouTube, my personal favorite:

Oh, Jason Dohring. <3

So I just finished watching another new show called Moonlight because, yes, "Jason Dohring is hot" really is a legitimate reason to watch a show. What? It is! [profile] d4ni and I came to this conclusion through a careful analysis of the CBS website for the show. Our main research question: "Does Jason Dohring look hot in the promotional photos?" The answer: a resounding yes. So, nevermind the dubious nature of a vampire show on CBS, this show had to be worth checking out.... right?

Now if only I could get my hands on last night's House.
