It's not really June 1

I lost a day somewhere, as I was laboring under the illusion that yesterday was May 31. Hence my hurry to post best wishes to framefolly, whose birthday is in fact today. Silly me.

So my new vacation didn't arrive (it will tomorrow), so I didn't put in my requests, although it was the first OFFICIAL day in my new position.

In re-watching The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. after all these years, I am struck by how freakin' expensive this show must have been to produce, making me amazed it was allowed 27 episodes to begin with -- of course, FOX was young in those days and it let shows actually work a little before giving up on them. I wonder if Firefly been done in the mid-90's it would have gotten more than 13 episodes.

Woke up in the middle of the night thoroughly congested and tried every position I could to try and breathe, until finally Bo coming in and dancing on the bed made me get up and take some decongestant, after which I was able to sleep. I turned off the alarm and didn't get to the gym, and tomorrow will be working overtime, so I hope I can get in a workout or two SOMETIME this week. I have to suck it up and start going more often, and not just on a morning schedule; even after work or on weekends.



Another blurry one, but I like it, anyway.




New chapter is up.

Hee.

I find I love Brisco even more now than I did then, for all it's silly and absurdest. (The puns are excruciating sometimes, but I laugh at every single one!)

I should try it again. If i'm remembering the dates on that I was either in med school or just after it when I didn't watch much tv and had little energy for humor left (I even hated Buffy the first time out)

Yeah, it was 1994. I always figured it was made for people who loved Wild Wild West, since it's science fiction thinly disguised as a western, with semi-magical orbs from outer space, a mad scientist, rockets, tanks, "motored cycles," a horse who all but speaks English, and jokes like Lord Bowler taking a doughnut from a kid and saying, "Thanks, Duncan."

Great cast, too. But I nearly always love Bruce Campbell.

Bruce is fun
I loved wild wild west and Bruce Campbell but yes that was during my residency and doing 36 hour shifts so I missed a lot of it.

Re: Bruce is fun
You might like it if you try it again.

I am struck, though, on this re-watch, at how high the production values are. I can't believe this was on weekly (never occurred to me, back in 1994, how important that was, but I think back then shows were given more time to find an audience before being cancelled).

Re: Bruce is fun
i should netflix it. Oh, I'm definitely sure shows had much more time back then and even more in the 80s

I say Memorial Day should ALWAYS be on May 31, and May 31 should ALWAYS be the last Monday in May. NASA will figure out a way to reconcile the calendar to suit my new edict.
