More days in flux

Since everything is still in boxes piled all over my house, I haven't unpacked or attempted to set up my new computer, much less get my important crap off my old one (which includes my entire iTunes library--I cannot change or update my iPod, I'm stuck with what's loaded on it now--a whole LOT of Classic Dr. Who episodes, and, most importantly, ALL MY FICTION--fortunately some of that is on my jump drive). I have no space to do anything or plug anything in, so none of the new stuff has been tried.

My foot is gaining mobility, although it still hurts and I can't put on any shoes other than sneakers, so I'm rather glad I have three pairs of Chucks and two pair of Baby Phat tennies. I can't, however, cram my foot into my new, not-broken-into exercise sneaks.

If I didn't already enjoy Pushing Daisies, I would give them props for actually giving the Tony-award-winning actress they hired a chance to sing on the show. If you have Kristin Chenoweth, give her that spotlight. Awesome.

Not to mention I could listen to Jim Dale talk forever. Plus writers who know what to do with Chi McBride (unlike the folks at House). I expect, though, like Wonderfalls, there's only about four people watching it, because it's WAY too weird for the normals, and I'll be lucky if it lasts until the Holiday break.

But at least Lost and Jericho will be back by then.

Sure signs of winter in Arizona: they came and stripped off all the summer grass and planted rye grass at the office. Yes, we plant grass seed in the autumn. As well as most other plants, although Barb and I won't be setting any flowers this year because there are workmen tromping through our flowerbed all day long. The vinca are all smashed. But it will be worth it. Oh, yes, it will.

The windows are in, insulation is going up, the wiring is in, most of the plumbing done - oh, joy, water pressure! - and they say it should go pretty fast from here on. I'm past ready to get out of boxes!

I have a buttload of things to do and I can't get up the energy to do them in the tiny spaces we have for doing things (like setting up computers)...

I hope they get it downloadable soon! That's the trouble with the ABC "watch it later" site - we had that trouble when we missed the finale of Lost last year - ended up having to find a bit torrent site and downloading the thing 'cause ABC's website was so annoying!

Admittedly, the song she sings is the sappy "Hopelessly Devoted to You" (hastily written for the movie Grease, not in the original score), but she's still got such a powerhouse voice it comes off awesome.

Heh. Well, I'm happy to report that by 5-ish Wednesday afternoon, the entire episode was FINALLY available and I got to watch the bits I had missed. (I like to think my nasty note to ABC was at least partially responsible!)

Actually, now that I think about it, until this incident, I've had great luck with all the on-line shows this year. *crossing fingers, knocking on wood, and feelling all grateful for the library's 1Gbps connection!*

The only show I've not seen yet is "Reaper" which for some unknown reason isn't available on the CW's site. But I live in hope... ;)

And I rather enjoyed "Hopelessly Devoted" (which normally I just find annoying) but as you said, it's to the singer's credit. And dancing with the janitor and Digby was so adorable! I'm just grateful that they're making Olive a fairly sympathetic character rather than the more predictable "heinous bitch" type.

Duh. By THURSDAY afternoon... sorry, had a "senior moment" there. ;)

Hooray! Good to hear it. Maybe it was just because so many people were watching Lost that it was so tough.

Reaper is largely worth watching for the Devil, otherwise it's so far a very one-note show. Enjoyable, but not with much delving. But given a chance to expand, it could do very well.

I like Olive - in fact, I rather like all the characters so far on Pushing Daisies.
