books & tea

Sunday evening, with sleeping cat sprawled across me

Have started on season 2 of the West Wing. Will not mention spoilers, but I very much enjoyed the first two eps.

theblackmare, I was thinking of you today as I drank gunpowder tea.

Mr P ran off with my Banks yesterday, but made up for it by reading the first section to me while my headache was at its worst. I love being read to. This is one of the things that makes alixtii's response to my prompt (for the hetfic_minis Buffy round) extra-fun for me. Though six hours of reading! Would Giles have a voice left? He must have used magic.

Note also that I have finished and posted a story, and I feel much better about my writing mojo today. Though brilliance is beyond me, I shall aim for solid, stolid entertainment. My next project due is Buffy/Giles for my own ficathon. That is why I'm writing HH5 right now. I procrastinate from writing by writing.

alixtii: By Her Side, Giles/Buffy, feedback left (has library jokes!)
froxyn: Life on a Hellmouth part 6, Giles/Buffy
For Xander's Sake, Giles/Anya
mythichistorian: Jolly Holiday part 9, this section all about Anya/Xander, feedback left
noelia_g: A Story of Shoes and Cookies, Giles/Buffy, feedback left
anidada: Court and Spark, Giles/Ethan

To-read list:
heron_pose: Gethsemane chap 14, chap 15, Giles/Anya

I'm not batting a thousand with the feedback, am I. Sigh.

Sometimes it's hard to write. Then I remind myself that all I want is a "hi, had fun for five minutes!" response, so then I go off and try to do that.
ITSOTG was the very first episode of west wing I ever saw. I spent the summer listening to commercials screaming, "Who's been hit?" and by September I really wanted to know. And what an introduction that was. I really think the intro into the credits is one of the best I've ever seen.
I can imagine that fans of the show had their heads pop after the season 1 cliffhanger. I liked the flashbacks in ITSOTG so very much. Particularly CJ's segment.

Loving this show.
Oh, yes, it's so her. And falling into the pool! I laugh because I am that blind and totally would have fallen in too.

The scene with Donna and Toby though, in the waiting room... *shivers*
Would Giles have a voice left? He must have used magic.

I approve of this explanation. Also explains how he's all ready to have sex immediately after instead of having a killer backache from sitting in one place too long.
