So, after much chat with , and obviously far too much time on my hands... I finally did it...

[livejournal.com profile] ga_alexmark took its first, tentative breath today!

PLEASE JOIN!!

We know it's new and different... that's why we like it!

Also: anyone that knows me knows I AM USELESS at making things look pretty, so... if anyone can help on that front, I'd be eternally grateful!

(ps. [livejournal.com profile] citron_presse and [livejournal.com profile] violet1979, if it just ends up being the three of us it will be hilarious! All our predictions will come true!)

GREY'S PROBABLY NOT REAL ANYWAY SPOILER: BEWARE



THIS
IS JUST MEAN.

MEAN AND NASTY.

And now I'm gonna have to watch even though I don't believe it will happen and just... gah.

WHY????

WHYWHYHYWHYWHYYYY????

So, apparently I'm still obsessing processing.

Sympathy for the Parents aired here last night... here (for my new flisties!) is Australia, by the way.

Knowing what I know now about the shenanigans of the season finale, it became so much more of an "OH!" experience re-watching this ep. Here's why...

First... the obvious stuff:
- The Clark's first appearance, duh... and Mr. Clark's thinly veiled threats.
- Derek telling Meredith that he doesn't want her to be alone if anything happens to him. Has there been a bigger anvil?!
- Teddy/Owen/Cristina and that's all I'm gonna say because even that is giving it too much time and consideration! (Actually, you know what... I will mention it. Only because it makes Owen look like the ass that he is) Owen shouting at Cris in surgery that she is a subordinate and she can only do what they tell her to (which yeah, ask Derek what he thinks about Cris's surgical abilities why don'cha?)

Second... the kinda obvious stuff:
- Derek and Meredith having the most serious 'baby talk' they've ever had (that I can recall anyway).
- Callie and Arizona agree to talk about their own baby situation at the end (as opposed to moisturiser!).
- Derek watching Richard's surgery from the gallery because he's never got time to operate himself anymore (which is a theme revisited in the finale).

Third... the least obvious stuff (at least, to me at the time):
- April's infatuation with Derek is exposed (an infatuation which, ultimately, leads to him getting shot. I really think Mr. Clark had just about decided to put the gun down before she ran out...)
- Alex tells Aaron that he "can't do this [this being surgery] and be in that [that being at home]" and in the end, it was being this [a surgeon] that ultimately almost cost him his life.
- Bailey remarking that despite all the absolute crap Alex had survived during childhood and adolescence, he's still managed to make it as a doctor, but it's being a doctor that ends up becoming his biggest survival challenge and not what he went through as a child.

Did anybody notice anything that I missed? Does anybody even care??!!!

I'm going to be eagerly awaiting the Australian premiere of the episode where the hospital is being sued and Derek has to give evidence, to see if any of the parallels are carried over all three/four episodes.

It is highly likely that this post will make very little coherent sense. I only finished watching a few minutes ago.

I think I am in shock. Actual, clinical shock.

Did you know it is possible to develop PTSD and Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) from watching televised tragedies? True Fact. This may be important to remember in about a months time when we all wind up in therapy.

ARGH!


HOLY OH MY GOD I CAN'T EVEN THINK

(I am oddly horrified and excited... I do not understand myself... I am incoherent...)

I need to... discuss... right now.

Umm, excuse me...

*raises hand politely*

Can someone from the northern hemisphere PLEASE explain the existence of DOUBLES LUGE to me?

Because I. Do. Not. Understand.

Thanks, bai.

P.S. If Scott James is not the cutest, little Olympian ever then... I dunno who is! The kid is gonna be a superstar!

I heard a lady start a conversation with this today...

"You know that girl in the paper today? She was my sister's ex-husband's ex-wife's partner's ex-wife's daughter..."


And she wasn't even kidding.

She repeated it twice because the poor recipient of this staggering piece of information didn't quite follow the first time (no shit).
