In which I actually watch TV, which is a surprisingly rare occurance these days

Well, I had a (relatively) interesting weekend. Went to a trivia night on Sunday, and my team did not actually come last, so huzzah for that. So we won a packet of Tim-Tams, which is all good.

Plus, I went and watched The Legend of Korra (well, all of it that's out so far), which was pretty decent recent, though I really need to get some better quality downloads there, since image quality was... not great on mine. The music was lovely though. Enjoying it so far, and it looks both fun and interesting, but one look at the fandom and I think I shall steer clear from most of that. I can see wankiness brewing on the horizon. I'll stick around for the icons, though.

Oh, and thanks for whomever on Facebook for informing me that A). Douglas Adam's Dirk Gently books have been made into a TV series, and B). It started on ABC this evening. Dirk looks nothing like he was described in the books, and I am still trying to decide if the depiction and story changes are intentionally a mildly mockery of BBC!Sherlock or if that's just me reading too much in.

Then today I experimented with cooking again - well, made that curried lentil soup again, which was still nommy, and experimented with grilled balsamic mushrooms and (purple) carrots, which almost worked.

And I suppose the next few days will be busy, too. Volunteering tomorrow, then on Wednesday I believe I am due to see Avengers with neo_leviathan and... others. So there's that.

In other news, I rather need a haircut, anyone know somewhere decent around Melbourne, that will do something interesting to it without costing too much?

Also this is very possibly the most terrifying bit of Evangelion advertising I have ever seen.
