For some reason I woke up with "Song for Ten" from "The Christmas Invasion" stuck in my head. That just makes me sad(er).

Last night's Pushing Daisies did manage to make things slightly better. I'm going to try to work the phrase "piss jitters" into conversation at least once a day from now on.

Ironically, yesterday before the Tennant news broke I'd dusted off a Doctor Who/Jane Austen fic I started many long months ago, and actually made some decent progress on it. Anyone wanna take bets on whether I'll be inspired to actually finish it?

This is the first time in four years that we haven't had a Halloween party. Usually, I'm the Halloween Queen around here, but this year I'm not doing anything. No putting up decorations, no baking treats for the munchkin's school festival (I actually bought cupcakes at Whole Foods today), no carving pumpkins, no dressing up in costume. There's just been too much stress in my life lately so I decided not to add to it by creating a lot of extra work for myself trying to get into a holiday spirit that I'm just not feeling. Instead, I'm going to spend today cleaning up the disaster area that is my house and (hopefully) writing fic.

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] austin360 and my friend Libby came over for knitting, and since we all love Pushing Daisies I decided to try my hand at the infamous pear pie with gruyere baked into the crust (homeopathic mood enhancers not included).

I followed the recipe Mikaela posted on TV Bacon, which was actually for a spiced apple and pear pie, because a plain pear pie would just be so... well... plain. And I gotta say, ya'll, though I'm not generally a great fan of fruit pies, this one was delish. The pears add a subtle flavor and depth missing from traditional apple pies, and the addition of the cheese to the crust gives it an extra yummy boost.

Honk if you love pie )

Yes, I know, I’ve been terrible about posting my Comic-con reports in a timely manner. Raise your hand if you’re surprised. I’ve been totally procrastinating and letting myself get distracted (by my obsessive new love for Jericho and by fic writing), but I’m just gonna buckle down and blow through the rest of it today, because there’s some really cool stuff left.

For starters, I realized that I forgot to mention that my tradition of being stalked by Joss Whedon continues. You know how he was in our hotel two years ago? And then last year we switched to a different hotel and didn’t get to see Joss anymore (but Seth Green was down the hall from us and had a lovely chat with the munchkin on the elevator). Well this year we were at the same hotel as last year and lo(!) and behold(!), Joss apparently missed us because he was at the same hotel as us. We saw him twice at breakfast and once on the elevator. I didn’t try to talk to him except for a rather awkward exchange on the elevator where I offered to punch in his floor for him since he seemed to be having trouble locating his room key (which you need to make the elevator buttons work), and he realized he didn’t have his key at all and got off again. Either that or he thought I was a crazy psycho fan trying to suss out what floor he was on and he didn’t want to be trapped in a small metal box with me. Whatever. There were, however, no Seth Green encounters this year, which is a Comic-con first for me. I guess he’s passed the stalking baton back to Joss.

Also (and this is not so much Comic-con related as new fall TV related, but I’m including it here anyway), the lovely B brought a few pilot screeners for us to watch. Sadly, we were so tired most nights we only got to watch one of them. The one we picked to watch was Chuck, because it has Adam Baldwin and because none of us were able to go to the panel for it the next day.

Okay, so back to Comic-con proper. The first panel of the day on Saturday was Pushing Daisies. Ya’ll, this show is FANTASTIC. Everyone must watch it. I’m not kidding. If each and every one of you doesn’t watch this show I will find out and there will be consequences. Dire consequences. It’s almost certainly the best new show of the season. Possibly the best new show of the last two seasons.
