Crime + Punishment

The Crime: Talking Erik into us buying an Xbox 360 on a whim while looking for a shooter game for the Wii.

The Punishment: A fairly miserable couple of days with some sort of respiratory problem. *cough* x ∞

The Excuse: Hey, when your boyfriend tells you that your idea is "totally hot", you go with it.


In other crime & punishment news, I've become completely obsessed with the "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" television serieseseses. Damn the USA Network for playing them back to back to back to back at night! I haven't hit the sack on a schoolnight before midnight in more than a week now. I know that liking the L&O's are probably so fifteen years ago, but what can I say? I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes!

One slight obnoxiousness that I've just stumbled across are its use of the same guest actors coming on to play completely different characters. Case-in-point: actor David Thornton (Cyndi Lauper's husband!) playing a lawyer on a couple episodes of "SVU" and a murder suspect in an episode of "Criminal Intent", and a few other characters on the o.g. "Law & Order" series. Any die hard is bound to have trouble with suspending their disbelief, especially when the conflicting episodes are aired within a week.

And now, back to viewing and coughing and temporarily lamenting the fact that the Xbox is with Erik instead of with me.

things people have said

no regrets, here! hopefully i'll have halo 2 done by the weekend so's we can get back to perfect dark zero.

and i really hope that your 'respiratory problem' isn't in any way karmically linked to the xbox...
