Lauren or Lou, as you like.

Because my birthday is coming up...
Because I had the foresight to work out an Amazon wishlist for the first time.. er.. ever...
Because Chris is FANTASTIC and loves me and has the excellent taste to share my interest...
(And because Amazon is listing all the suckers at approx. 1/3 the usual price, hint hint, this is the time to look...)
...we are now the proud owners of our very own complete set of Babylon 5.
No more hauling a season's worth of my mother's VHS tapes up from LA when we realize we might want to have access. No more waiting months to trade it out for another season. No more years of drought because we didn't think to do it or she was re-watching or...
Granted, seeing the commercials that were being aired in Torrance in 1998 on TNT during the original airing of River of Souls was kind of an amazing time capsule. Especially the one for how they were going to be recording Monday Night RAW at the Anaheim Pond (back when it was still the Duck pond, bless it), because I remember watching that commercial then, and we went, and we even trekked out to Venice Beach because Chyna and Triple H were going to be hanging out at the outdoor gym and we wanted to meet them and she was so freaking sweet and I still remember her nail polish...
...but not a really sustainable relationship. And anyway, I'm on a Bruce Boxleitner binge and have run out of movie-of-the-week Westerns from the 90s that are available for instant streaming. I'm going to be good and wait out Michael O'Hare--we're starting over from the beginning, just watched the pilot, The Gathering, last night--but it won't be long.
Anyway, short version: love.
