I should either be sleeping or writing right now, but I'm making a blog post instead!

Here's what's cooking around these parts:
1) I'm terrifically behind on a bunch of things, but for some reason it's not bothering me. I would investigate, but I'm afraid investigation would cause me to lose that loving feeling, then it would be gone, gone, .......... gone and so on. (Woah-oh oh) So I'm noticing it and moving on!

2) the cable guy had to come out yesterday because many channels were unwatchable and I called to (politely) complain. He came up the driveway while I was putting some stuff in the recycling bin and noted that "you've got some kind of Hansel and Gretel thing going on here." (I think because the house is set back off the road with a lot of garden in front, although maybe he meant I look like I would bake children in an oven. I hope it wasn't that second thing!) Anyway - SQUIRRELS! They apparently love the taste of cable and like to sharpen their little teeth on it. Cable guy replaced it and also bestowed 3 months of free HBO! Score.

3) The Buffy Watching Club (for lack of a better name) is now firmly in season 6, which I haven't really watched since it aired the first time. Man, that is a dark season! But it's good. Today we watched After Life, Flooded, and Life Serial. It'll be interesting to see how these episodes seem after all this time. But as always the best part was seeing all my Buffy peeps, because they are wonderful even if some of them have irrational prejudices against certain episodes in season 1. (:::coughcoughPuppetShowcoughcough:::)

4) OMG! It might snow tonight/ tomorrow/ some time in the next 30 days. This means that all local weathermen have already removed their jackets so that they might roll up their shirt sleeves and get to work readying the WEATHER CENTER or STORM WATCH or SNOW TURKEY SPACE HEATER ALARM CENTER. (okay, on that last one I'm just mashing up a few stories all together as a time saver.)

5) Next blog post I'm going to write in paragraphs or a paragraph rather than lists or bullet points. It is my SNOW DAY GOAL.

6) the picture above is from one of the James Bondian hallways in the Grand Coulee Dam, which by the way is the largest concrete structure in the United States.

7) now I'm super tired.

  1. Well, I feel I must address at least one thing in your post, and if time for one is all I have I should say that although The Puppet Show from season one of Buffy is pretty hideous I think, at least to me, it represents the whole season and what was wrong with it. It seems as if season one was sort of a weird mutation/continuation of the classic movie the series is "based on".
    But now I must go and salt everything to get ready for Snowlapalooza. I am going to the grocery store later because I actually seem to do that each day and I am NOT looking forward to the insanity that will be going on. If I didn't dislike most people already this would definitely push me in that direction.

  2. I've got to stop writing these things so late at night! You're right - it's not a good episode and dislike of it isn't irrational at all. But you always make such a great disgusted face whenever anyone brings it up...

    I think I inadvertently timed my work schedule as stupidly as possible - I work from 3-8 tonight and then 8-1 tomorrow. Oh well, at least it's close enough that I can walk if suddenly the roads turn to ice. Good luck at the grocery store! I think you're early enough in the week to avoid 85% of grocery store holiday insanity.

  3. I love our Buffy Watching Club! I think when we're all done we should watch ep 1 just for kicks and maybe throw in the puppet show too!

  4. Yay! I think that's a very good idea. hee hee.

  5. I think that we should re-watch Season One in its entirety-so many magical moments.
