What my teacher said

I just finished watching CSI:Miami. Wow. Hot, hot, hot. I loved pissed off, restrained Horatio Caine. With messy hair and good lighting effects. *fans self* That just made my day.

So, to the subject now. My history teacher is a conspiracy theorist at heart. His conspiracy class is the most popular one on campus for any department and he's teaching it next term. I'm going to try to get in, but there's probably going to be no chance in hell of it happening.
Today we were talking about the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (1890/1905) which are "the minutes from a meeting of elders/rabbis who were planning to take over the world." The quotes are because the protocols are probably fake. And seriously, as my teacher said, it reads less like the minutes of a meeting than someone sitting in a dark room by themselves cackling madly, rubbing their hands together and shrieking that they're going to do something nasty to someone.
But his really good point came when he asked us if we had a super-secret global society bent on world domination and we had a meeting, would we really take notes/minutes - let alone publish them to let the general public know what the hell is going on?? Its a good point.

*Cocks eyebrow* It's a good point. *Dangles Horatio coming into work in blue jeans!bunny* You want him, when he talked to me, I thought you'd like him, I've got too many bunnies as it is.

lol, yeah, I thought so. And it was either that story or the one about the Jews as hyperactive green aliens from the fifth dimension. And I didn't really take notes on that one.

*headdesk* You and me both, but I'll take him. Hmmm, Horatio in jeans and a silk shirt looking for Mac?

Cool! *Hands bunny over* He's been running around my desk but I just don't have time to listen to him.

lol, love the icon. I'll see what I can do. Now I have visions of Horatio in black jeans and a light blue silk shirt. *rolls eyes* Not bad, really.

I never got the David Caruso thing. Horatio is a neat character, don't get me wrong, but I just have a hard time getting thru my dislike of his actor. 'Course, I hated NYPD Blue with a passion...

Now, Gary Sinise, George Eads and Carmine Giovinazzo, on the other hand...*faint* Mark Harmon and Micheal Weatherly *drool* and whoever plays Hotch. Much more to my liking. Plus, typically at least one guy from all 15 seasons of Power Rangers (before you laugh, 3-4 hot guys in Spandax and me dateless for a year when it first started)

Thomas Gibson is Hotch on CM. *grin* Yeah, I know what you mean there. He's hot.

I don't know what it is about Horatio/DC. My mum doesn't get it either and almost every girl I work with either thinks his ugly or hates him. So I'm just used to fighting the lost cause.

I think the majority of it is the tall and dark thing. He's paler than I am, and that's rare! I've got brown/auburn hair and a fair complexion that burns under a Gibbs-glare! And I live in MI. I see a hot guy with a nice tan and I wonder how far down it goes.

Yeah, I'll agree tall and dark is good. My first love - when I was seven - was Jack Webb as Joe Friday. And to this day I still just love him. Horatio is really the only non tall/dark/handsome guy I like. Yeah. I'll count Carmine as T/D/H. *grin*

We don't get tans out here unless its in a tanning bed or someone goes on vacation. No, wait, I take that back. The farmers get a pretty good tan during the season.

I lived in SD for a year. I had a pretty good tan/burn going on during field work.

Black Hills or further east? I was in Spearfish for two years in the 80s.

We just hit a record high today. 90F on the first day of October. Too hot for me. *Grin*

Rapid City. I went to the School of Mines for a year. Hopefully, I can finish my Master's someday. I've been thru Spearfish Canyon and not only toured, but attended a T-Rex symposium and got Pete Larson to consult a couple times on a project I was working on (Paleo geek, here.)

I love Rapid City. Especially Dinosaur Park and Storybook Island. Hey, second and third grade, its all about the parks. *grin* I remember a few other places, offices and the like. My dad worked for Homestake Mine in Lead for years.

Spearfish Canyon is beautiful. We'd go and have picnics out there, collect leaves in the fall for pressing. I do miss it at times and need to go back and visit. See how many places I can remember.

If you get to Hill City, check out the Black Hills Institute. It's only a couple rooms, but they have some very excellent specimens, like the T-Rex Stan (the most complete ever found). Also, they found T-Rex Sue (stupid FBI)

Yeah, those feds, ruin everything. *grin* I used to work for the TSA so I can't say that with a straight face.
I'll have to remember that. I keep saying I'm going back there one of these days. But I say the same about my mum's family in Mississippi too.

i want to see him back in there..

I was waiting for him to hit the guy at the end. I just knew Horatio was in there somewhere and would pop out when least expected. *grins*

I'm sure he will at some point. But don't forget, this is supposed to be the "dark" season on Miami.

Hmmmm, I think dark Horatio is going to be hotter than usual. :)

yeah that a dark horatio will be damn hot..

i hope to see him back to pre-s4 where he would stare down the baddies & get physical..

Oh yeah. :)
That would be hot too. One thing I wish he'd start doing again is that chuckle in the back of his throat - the mhm-mmm - noise that he would make in season 1. I just found that hot for some reason.
