My poor sister. When I get tired and easily offended I respond with biting sarcasm (worse than usual, they don’t call me ‘Razorblade’ for nothin’). And when she gets tired she is easily upset by said sarcasm. Sigh. And yes, I always think of the quote from A Separate Peace “It was only long after that I recognized sarcasm as the protest of people who are weak” (Knowles, 29). Then I remember what my mom said when I read that line to her, something along the lines of, “That’s just what people say when they can’t think of anything mean to say back.” That doesn’t make me feel any better or worse about it, it just always makes me think of that. Anyway, luckily Katie doesn’t hold grudges too long.
Today I worked on what will be a baby shower gift that’s going to be pretty epic, then I left to go shopping with my mom and sister and my dad pretty much finished it….
New Doctor Who tonight! I loved it. I cried and I was petrified. No spoilers though because I know some people haven’t been able to watch yet. I do want to know if Mark Sheppard’s character’s name is a Firefly reference…also it’s weird that he has an American accent and *isn’t* playing a bad guy…*

*Okay so I was going to post a picture of Mark Sheppard but I just got sucked into looking at pictures and gifs of him on tumblr. And it made me realized how many of my favorite shows he’s been on. Firefly, The Middle Man, Leverage, Chuck, Burn Notice, The X Files including shows from back in the day: JAG, Sliders! And shows I’ve been meaning to watch like Battlestar Galactica and Supernatural.
