Watched the NCIS finale.
It wasn't at all what I expected, and although there were some super cool bits, I don't think it quite lived up to the buildup.

Fellow watchers, what did you think?

Husband is hopping a plane to Canadia today - a whirlwhind tour of ports awaits (Halifax, Toronto, Vancouver, Prince Rupert). Then back to Europe to hit France up for like two freaking days. Then home. Where I will be extremely pleased to see him. I really hate the trips that go any longer than 3 weeks.

I am going to Wellington next week to house and cat sit and have a little adventure (I'm hoping to do some of those things I never go do in Wellington because I get distracted by doing the same few things I really love every time I'm there for a weekend, and lesser things miss out).
I'm open to suggestions of either cool things to do, or cool people to do them with.

I haven't quite worked out when I'm headed to the North Island though, because I was hoping to go spend a couple of days with the soldier-sister before the house-sitting, but she's currently in the field and not answering texts, and I'm not sure when she's done.

I'm guessing said field exercise is not much fun with the current weather. Or at least, I wouldn't want to be hanging out in a foxhole in torrential rain with crazy gales. It's possible that army type people are all over that, though. Different tastes etc.

We might get snow tonight/tomorrow. In May. Because somewhere there's a Weather God mocking me.
It would almost be okay if it wasn't already so wet - I like snow, when it settles. But nasty slushy icky stuff I can do without.

I recently became a little obsessed with iTunes Genius playlist function. I'm a bit eh about sharing data, but I love the way it works. I quite often want to listen to a collection of stuff that's, you know, a lot like this one song. And Genius just makes playlists like that for me with no effort, which is awesome, and also gets me listening to things I might otherwise forget about. Win! And when you think about the process that creates them, it's quite amazing. The collation of that much data, and application of it - it's such a huge thing, for such a little thing. The internet is kind of humans linking up all the spread out knowledge and data and experience of our species, and we use it to do things like pick out music. I think it says a lot about humanity.

I turn thirty in little over a month. I really want to do something significant, but I'm having trouble gathering ideas, and then the date I had picked for a celebration got taken by someone else's, and the following weekend is already taken by something else, and it's all hard work to detangle. Maybe I'll just do something for myself, but I'd rather do something fun with other people. Will keep working on it.

By contrast, the elder of my nieces turned 3 last weekend. My brother and his family visited today, and I was woken after three hours sleep to see them - two toddlers on that kind of sleep can be hard going. But I gave her her birthday present, a kids digital camera, which she was enthusiastic about. She's been fascinated by other people's for ages, and recently started pretending she was taking pictures with all sorts of other things, so it seemed a good gift. I do like having them around, a lot.
More of my friends should have children for me to enjoy, also :-P

Now: Glee. And then the finales for The Good Wife and Parenthood (which is surprisingly engaging). And yes, there's a lot of tv in my life at present. Don't judge me. Have you seen the weather lately? ;-P
