I love Ted Crisp in Better Off Ted because he's trying so hard to be good, yet he works for a soulless corporatioin and he has a drive to win. He's a single dad raising his daughter Rose, who is eight, and he ard to be a good dad even though he works for the Company.

I wonder what kind of guy he would be if he didn't have Rose in his life. Would he still be the Ted trying hard to be a good guy, or would he be some chiseled evil!Ted-doll still speaking all sweet but destroying his enemies.

I think that's why I like Veronica. She's the perfect complement to Ted. And the way Portia DeRossi played her... muwah! I don't think there's anyone else in the world that could have played Veronica better. That amazing mix of over-the-top ebullience, beautiful woman, and sheer overpowering PRESENCE. That voice, that phrasing, the things she SAYS.

God, I love Veronica's interactions with Ted the best, but I enjoy the way she is with the others. She's BRUTAL with her honesty, while at the same time being blatantly insincere.

My brother suggested that the Bond-villains could wage biological warfare on 007. They're always throwing these chicks at him and he's always falling for it. At this point, I figure he's gone through every STD in history.

Or he would have, if he wasn't a Highlander. He's died so many time and come back and he seems able to regenerate any wound. Unfortunately, I read that fandom and it was terrible and I'm usually a Methos crossover hoar, yet I couldn't stomach this. Knthx.

Read 103 chapters, could not go on. I kept reading and reading, hoping it would get better. It did not. Lame.

The premise was of someone getting to go back in time and fix the errors he made in his life before. It kind of intrigued me so I started reading. And I read and I read and I read and I read... Until I reached chapter 103 and I realized I just couldn't do it anymore. There were 121 chapters in the story, and I couldn't finish it.

My only real regret is that I wasted so much of my life reading the story, then to get so very very far and be unable to finish... It makes me pretty regretful.

Someone out there took what should have been an awesome story idea, and turned it into an overbloated travesty. I do not understand the preoccupation people have with trying to stretch a story out to gigantic proportions. What good does that really do anyone? Whatever happened to the idea of brevity?

Less talky, more walky. Get in, get some, get gone. Pizza and pie.

Back in "olden times," a novel might only have been 50,000 words and would be considered all wrapped up. But lately it seems as though some authors want to take their 50,000 words worth of story and spread it out to over 300,000 words. And most of those authors reside on FF.net.

I would probably want to say something to them, except their fans would probably come after me gangland style. So many stars and sparkles going after me would probably wreck my world. So instead of saying things direct, I stew away in my house quietly pitching a bitch. Oh well.
