I tried a couple of shows out and rejected them:

Hap and Leonard (on Netflix)
I wanted to like this because the guy who plays Omar on the Wire (Michael K. Williams) plays a gay Vietnam vet. But after a couple of episodes, I didn't like any of the characters. Williams' character, Leonard, was OK, but everyone else was mean and horrible.

Limitless (on Netflix)

A movie spin-off. Brian thinks of himself as a loser and a disappointment to his dad, even though his dad is supportive. He takes a drug called NZT, which temporarily turns him into a super-genious. I enjoyed the pilot because he used his genious for a bunch of things, like diagnosing his father's illness, solving a murder, playing music really well in a park, and talking to people about their problems (social intelligence!). But in the 2nd episode, it's clear that this is just another procedural about a white guy who is a rule-breaking genious for the FBI. He gets away with his rule-breaking because he produces results (and also b/c privilege). The science in the 2nd episode was also pretty bad: an engineered flu strain that was supposedly used for assasinations. Riiiiight. I stopped watching.

I settled on an addictive, violent, perhaps overly dramatic, gripping show on Hulu: BLACK SAILS. This has lots of queerness and is very pretty.

Since we knew going in that the spring stint at Casual Job would almost definitely be really short this year*, I made no effort to psych myself up for the weirdness of the hours and how thoroughly it destroys every trace of routine, even when the hours aren't all that long. (I was at the office for 12.5 hours on Wednesday, which isn't an awful day by Casual Job standards, and the other days were all much more reasonable.)

An unforeseen (but unsurprising) side effect of not doing a bunch of preparation to settle in for a long haul is that I wasn't really able to get hold of my usual "we're all gonna grit our teeth and DO THIS THING" mindset. So even though it's only been four days in the office, and not even painfully long ones, at that (at least not for the people at my level), I am fried. Which is awkward, since I still have significantly over half a manga volume to rewrite by Monday. Whee?

(I've also had a bit of a scratchy throat since this afternoon, so it's possible some of the tiredness is because I'm fighting something off, but I sure hope not.)

All that said, the only definite thing I have planned for the weekend besides finishing that script is going into the backyard with [dreamwidth.org profile] scruloose tomorrow to talk to our next door neighbor, the condo board president, and the board member who deals with landscaping sorts of things about whether or not we can put in a second lilac shrub (this kind, as previously mentioned). [dreamwidth.org profile] scruloose talked to the neighbor a couple of days ago and got a very positive response (and also mentioned that the board is hoping to find a new home for the bush we're having [re]moved, and Neighbor expressed interest in that!), so to be honest I'm not sure why we actually need to get together to discuss it before they decide, but I also don't mind discussing it, so... *shrugs*

Cross your fingers for us!


*It's still not official that Casual Job is basically done for the spring already (other than a day or two of polishing off some backlogged transcription next week, and you bet I'll work every hour they can offer me, what with the "one week of work instead of the usual two or three MONTHS" thing), but it's as good as. Official word will probably arrive this weekend.

The investigation I'm engaged in may have less to do with automated theorem proving than I first thought, although that is the context in which it arose for me. The deeper questions may be what expressive power and what inferential power are added to a first-order language with equality by adding definite description terms as singular terms in the formal language.
