It has begun

Subject: Noir
Okay, why not, I'm doing it.

The whole concept of "Noiraversary" is now defunct and forever will be, sadly enough. But I really can't let myself forget that "Noir" is such an important and delightful show for me. It's been 8 months and 19 days since I've watched it, and I've experienced a whole range of anxiety surrounding the possibility of rewatching it. Anything from "I'm probably jaded by now" to "I don't want to keep the neighbors up with all the gunshots and subwoofer fun".

Up until the moment I actually put disc 1 into the DVD, I've been waffling on the possibility.

And I've done it. 2 episodes down, and I'm in love all over again. That's not to say that I'll actually do one of my patented drunken all-nighter marathons again (if I do, it will likely go until 6 in the morning), but I finally let myself enjoy one of the things that I know I'll enjoy a lot.

Maybe I'll do the whole thing. Maybe I'll just do a couple of discs now, and a couple of discs over the next few weeks. Whatever the outcome, I'm back.

UPDATE: 2 discs down; I can at least do 1 more, if not 2. Now it's time to welcome Chloe to the mix -- Hello Chloe! *waves*

UPDATE #2L: Okay, 3 discs are enough. I don't think I'll get any further tonight. *sigh*
