My Girl

Aug. 9th, 2012 02:11 pm

Cross-posted from my tumblr, because I'm lazy about blog entries and had a random bit of word vomit over there.

I have been such a sourpuss when it comes to dramas recently.  Nothing pleases me… mainly because everything I’ve watched has been mediocre at best.  Rooftop Prince switched from a comedic time-traveling murder mystery to a pointless battle over a company no one cared about.  Big was a mess from beginning to end, despite having two actors in the lead roles that I adore.  And now My Girl, a drama I’ve been meaning to watch since I got into this fandom, because 95% of the times I saw it mentioned, people loved it.

I did not.

I’m starting to think maybe I’m not the biggest Hong Sisters fan.  Perhaps I’m hanging on to the belief that I should be, because I loved Hong Gil Dong (until those blasted final four episodes), Fantasy Couple, and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (to a lesser extent than Fantasy Couple).  But Best Love, You’re Beautiful, Big, and now My Girl left me feeling fairly tepid.


Cut for My Girl spoilers and a lot of whining on my part )
I finally managed to finish Rooftop Prince... Thoughts and spoilers under cut )

I'm through episode 6 of Big. It's OK. Although how they've managed to AIR six episodes without anything really happening is beyond me. Things appear to have picked up with episode 5, so I'm hoping the drama is finding it's groove. We'll see.
I've really been awful about this Livejournal thing. I blame the fact that I haven't really been watching any dramas. I'm on episode 11 of Rooftop Prince and that's pretty much the only show I've been watching since my last update. I'm pretty pumped about watching Big simply because of the Gong Yoo/Lee Min-jung/Hong Sisters trifecta. I hope it doesn't suck. Someone tell me it doesn't suck.

Dramas have kind of fallen by the wayside because any tv I've been watching has been with other people (two sisters - one bonus one is living with us this summer). And dramas are kind of a niche thing, you know? So, when I do have alone time I have to decide between dramas or books and reading's been winning out as of late. I finally got around to reading A Dance With Dragons or whatever the lastest ASOIAF book is called. What a waste of my time. I wish I could understand why that book needed to be so long when NOTHING HAPPENED. Maybe I'll just stick to summaries in the future, since I still vaguely care about what happens to Arya and Sansa.

And then I did an A:TLA rewatch. But now my plate it clear! I am determined to finish Rooftop Prince. Although, I could very well get distracted by Big. WHO KNOWS. Time will tell. But, I've crossed the halfway point with RP despite it kind of boring me. Hopefully it picks up again. I still wish it was just a show about Park Ha and the three sidekicks. The prince and Se-na can go be on another show as far as I'm concerned.

SUMMER TV! I'm finishing up a rewatch of True Blood's last season before I start the next. I also have Bunheads on dvr, so I hope that's fun. I'm really only checking it out because of Amy Sherman-Palladino. Besides Pretty Little Liars I tend to steer clear of ABC Family shows. Jane by Design makes me watch to kill puppies.

Work has been pretty great. I got a raise so that's super. I'm supervising people which is a little scary but also cool? I want to be a good manager, but I'm dealing with some big internal battles because I don't want people to hate me. I just need to get more comfortable with confronting people when they do things wrong instead of going behind the scenes and cleaning it up for them. It just sometimes seems easier if I do everything because I know it's going to get done correctly... but it also makes my life kind of impossible.

As far as summer plans go I think I'm going to go on a cemetery tour! Sounds fun, right? :D I've inherited a bunch of family genealogy information. It's all in binders, so I've made it my mission to move everything into the digital world. It's all from my dad's side of the family and mostly his father's side. I have information going back to 1860, when they packed up and moved from Virginia to Illinois via Indiana. I have much, much less on my grandmother's family. So once I get all of my paternal grandfather's information squared away I'd love to delve into that and really learn how to research this whole ancestry thing. Because I really have no idea where to start when it comes to that. There is all kinds of conflicting/incomplete information out there. I think people just said whatever they wanted when the census came to town.

Anyway, I want to go get shots of tombstones because I'm creepy like that.

EDIT: OH ALSO! I wanted to catch up on everything I've missed, since I haven't even been ON this website in ages. And it wouldn't let me go past 120 entries on my friends list! D:
