hi all.the lodger is a dreadful endless film, imho. simon and hope davis are the best things in it. the whole plot doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up. gets so garbled and feverish from act two on. why the hell did they dye his hair? it does have one of his classic "keep your hand in your pocket while reaching for the girl" kisses. chilling in its effect here.
hi all.so stiles, we assume, knows who red john is and kirkland must know who he is because he didn't ask lennon. no insight; just musing. @mimi your unconscious is treating you very well giving you little hints of contact with patrick. unfortunately, it is not so kind as to keep you asleep once you get his shirt off. you must wine and dine your unconscious and buy it nice gifts so it will keep you asleep. my unconscious is mad at me and lately only gives me dreams of missing trains, losing dogs and showing up at places that just closed.
WATCHER. YOU CAME BACK!!! how are you? what have you been watching? do you follow us silently? yes, people love the baby stuff for this is the stuff of their lives and this is why parents socialize with other parents. the thing that's annoying is most of them have probably passed on the bad grammar and punctuation gene to their progeny.
@entwife funny. trying to think what wedding would be good. please not a double wedding with rigsby and van pelt. will cogitate.
@entwife guess that's why i find red john on the loose fanfics the most satisfying. the couple, still struggling with their feelings for each other, are increasingly menaced by their very own psychopath. instant interesting situation. also happens to be the one that's earned bruno the big bucks all these years. seeing fans write within that brilliant framework is fascinating. you get patrick and lisbon and sex and jeopardy. works for me. pet peeve: the use, by otherwise literate and lucid writers, of the word, "anyways." where did that come from and why would i rather poke my eyes out with knitting needles than read it again?
@entwife squirelly names! -%- abridgedella, mogendavida. wtf? ok, i'm exaggerating but not by much. i'm sure these are the names of the authors' kids.
oops. that ramble was for km too. thanks for info about premiere.
@entwife and rationalgal totally get why breeding or adopting seems to be the next step. and if it's well written, i will read box tops. the problem for me is that usually it's page after page of dramatic questions like "is it time for pull-ups?" or "can patrick conceal brussels sprouts in the twins' tacos?" in the quest for intensity, they have to go with a horribly damaged teresa to get patrick involved with something major. then teresa's travails become the star of the show. patrick shows up every few chapters to try to convince her he's changed and will now embrace her and/or their/her brother's children. eventually he shows up and plays the clown at the kids' birthday party or something (blecch) and wins her heart and gets to be instrumental in making the switch to pull-ups. but i do wind up reading them.
@rationalgal i think you make exactly the right point. post red john fanfics (and season 7) would have to grapple with patrick's inertia. he's been descending deeper and deeper into hell and suddenly, rj is gone. his psyche would get whiplash if he was able to just pick up and be normal. interesting to see how this would manifest itself. the fanfics mostly have him running off and staring at the ocean or staying on his couch staring at elvis. tough one. don't think anyone's pulled it off. in the fanfics, once he's staring, the only thing that seems to snap him out of it is someone waving a baby at him.
@entwife i like an insane new rj twist with a little sex and maybe some patrick pain thrown in.
