What in the world…

So apparently released yesterday in Hardcover and today on Kindle was the first book in the Nikki Heat series by Richard Castle.

For those of you that don’t tune in every Monday night, the premise of Castle is that Nathan Fillion plays Richard Castle, a murder mystery writer that is writing his newest series about a Homicide detective Nikki Heat.  In order to get ideas he teams up with NYPD (and Kate Beckett in particular) to help solve murders.  It’s actually way more interesting / funny then it sounds.  But even the book description on Amazon.com is straight out of the fictional world of Castle.  I’m loving this, and will definitely have to pick up a copy.

Murdered the English language…

Possibly the best Castle episode aired tonight.  And I totally sided with Castle…  (Warning: Spoiler Alert).

Scene: Woman found dead at her workplace with the words, “Your Out of Time” written on her face.

Castle: ‘You’re should be you-apostrophe-r-e, as in you are.  It’s not even a tough one.  Not like when to use “who” or “whom.”’

Beckett: ‘Do you really think that’s the take-away here, Castle?’

Castle: ‘I’m just saying, whoever killed her also murdered the English language.’

My spelling and grammar skills are atrocious (as you might have picked up from reading this blog) but it kills me when I read ”your” when it should be ”you’re” and “its” when it should be ”it’s.”  Maybe I figure if I can get those down, everyone should be able to.  So GO Castle!

Note: thank goodness for spell check because I apparently spelled grammar incorrectly.

Geek chic.  On tonight’s episode of Castle, Nathan Fillion doned these protective glasses to wear while he was cutting onions.  I’ve been on the fence for awhile about buying these glasses from BBB since I really have issues chopping onions.  Now, thanks to shameless product placement (I’m assuming) I think I might go ahead and buy the retarded-looking geek chic eyewear.

Meanwhile, the goal of this year was to decrease my tv watching, which was supposed to be easy with ER’s series finale airing this Thursday (sad) and the end of Girls Next Door, and rumors of it being the last season of Smallville as well.  So how did I pick up four more shows to watch this season (Castle, Lie to Me, The City, and Dollhouse)?  Actually, after this week it may be 5 new shows as I figured I’d at least watch the Cupid pilot.
