litter with enthusiasm

I did post once a day for the entire month of January! more or less. 31 days, 31 posts. I have some thoughts about the value of this experiment (I did receive benefit from it) which I will write up SOON, but not tonight. If I've learned anything, it's that I don't have to put Every Single Thing in one post. It's okay to spread it around.

I did not finish my quilt! but I got it pinned and mostly tied so I should be able to finish it tomorrow. I wasn't able to work on it much tonight because of the television. (nevermind that I worked on it the entire duration of crafty and still didn't finish...)

First, the debate: it was rather refreshing to hear candidates talk policy instead of insinuating that their opponent smokes crack and eats babies for breakfast. (they're saving it for the general election, I know!) Some pundits called it boring, but that's because without any name calling or chair throwing they think they don't have much to talk about. Chris Matthews probably had a coronary. (I don't know because comcast took away MSNBC. I kind of miss his barking laugh, irrational shouting and weirdly inappropriate segues. "I think you'd look good on the back of my motorcycle," etc. Wolf Blitzer just isn't the same. sigh.) p.s. I miss John Edwards.

Second, Lost: Holy Shit! I missed the first 20 minutes or so (have recorded it but not watched it yet) and I have only a very small idea of what's going on, but it was pretty exciting. Lost almost lost me somewhere in the middle of season 2, but I'm glad I stuck it out.

Third, Eli Stone: Is this where I admit that I think Jonny Lee Miller is A-Dorable? Because I do and I will! The lawyery part of this show was pretty stupid (except I'm always happy to see Spy Daddy from Alias and that guy who played the other doctor from Everwood), but I liked the idea of the spiritual and the scientific being the same thing, or two sides of the same thing. Other plusses for the show: George Michael makes me laugh! Jonny Lee Miller! Did I mention him already? (sickboy goes to law school!) (he also played Edmund in the 1999 version of Mansfield Park, which I thought was superior to the somewhat drippy one that was on Masterpiece Classic last week.)

Good night and happy January!

  1. If Jonny Lee Miller is Eli Stone, than I totally agree! He is dreamier than any drip on that doctor show AND he once was married to that scary skanky humanitarian Angelina Jolie AND he is doing some crazy hike thingy for a month, or something, across some part of the south pole, or somewhere cold like that, and he is so super cute!!! If he is the featured centerfold for Tiger Beat's February issue I just might have to buy it!!!

  2. Jonny Lee Miller IS Eli Stone! and super cute!!! I am totally buying that Tiger Beat.

    (he was also in a movie with ms. former wife scary skanky humanitarian Angelina Jolie called Hackers. It was terrible, but I loved it. (because JLM!!!) Fisher Stevens was the villain.)

  3. I saw Hackers many moons ago. I don't really remember it all that well. But JLM is the dreamiest!!! I am watching something called Extras right now and I LOVE IT!
