How can the weekend be over already?

I did accomplish a few things -- laundry, most notably -- but on the whole, the main thing I appeared to have done this weekend was eat. A lot. I am a beached whale. (Although I haven't brought the last load of laundry in off the line yet, and I have a load I want to take to the laundromat because I want it tumble-dried; my dress and leggings actually NEED to be tumbled and shrunk back into shape--note to self, buy leggings that fit too tight in the store because they WILL stretch out--I don't dry things flat often enough.)

Dreyer's ice cream is okay, but it's not as good as some. I thought maybe a full half-gallon would be better than a pint (and for servings, it is; it encourages me to get a bowl instead of just eating out of the carton), but it's just a little bland. *sigh* I found there IS still a Baskin-Robbins open near here. Woot. (I think I may be giving up the whole "lose weight" thing -- I suck.)

I didn't get a lot of writing done, but I got in a little research and some minor editing, and now am working on adding the scene I wanted to add. I went searching for any tornadoes in the San Antonio area in 1943, but apparently records were either not kept then, or there was nothing of major interest. So since it's an alternate universe anyway, I'll just say there was one in MY world.

Speaking of alternate universes, I have discovered and fallen in love with Fringe. I suppose that means it will now be canceled, like FlashForward--although FOX, oddly, has proven to be better at keeping shows than some other networks (*hates ABC* Seriously, in the last couple of years? The Nine, Eli Stone, Dirty Sexy Money, Cupid--and that's counting BOTH the original and the remake--Pushing Daisies, the forgotten, Better Off Ted... they even got me to start loving the updated Scrubs: Med School and that's going away now, too... *sigh*).

This week's Doctor Who was excellent. I think the new crew is finally getting its sea legs. I am happy with Eleven, and most especially with Amy's Choice.

It's hot. Freakin' hot. It was cooling down but it was still hot when I took Bo around the park. Bleah. I guess I'm going to just retire to air conditioning and cold baths when it gets REALLY hot. Stupid summer. I'm over it now. Maybe, though, because of the long winter, we can actually go camping this year. I'm SO needing a mountain retreat. Oh please oh please oh please.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

I know! It JUST started!

Congrats on laundry :)

Agreed.

You DO NOT suck. I've been bad, too. We'll get back to it. I did some yoga yesterday, and I hope to do some Wii Fit on Tuesday (tomorrow's right out). It's gonna happen!

All right, if you say so, I shall endeavor!

Did not get up this morning, though (largely because I didn't go to bed early enough last night). We shall see if I manage to do anything on a Monday.

The weekend goes way too fast. I'm definitely not ready to go back to work today. Bleh.

I'm not looking forward to going back to Tucson in a month. It's only been in the low 70's here and today is cool and rainy...probably not going to hit 60. I guess I should be glad it won't be July or August.

Ah, made it through Monday!

Tucson is routinely cooler than here, anyway (and to be honest, it's been exceptionally cool for a good long while here -- mid-May and we haven't hit 100); upper 90's here, low 90's there. (I often miss Tucson dreadfully!)

Are you a native Tucsonan? I am! Born at TMC, grew up a stone's throw from DMAF, graduated from CDO and attended UoA!

You?

Not QUITE -- we moved there just before I turned nine; I attended Kellogg from 4th - 6th grade, then Fickett Jr. High and finally Palo Verde High and UA (I am a Wildcat living in Sun Devil territory!). I grew up with the most perfect view of the Catalinas out our back patio door -- *sigh* how I miss those mountains! I rode my bike EVERYWHERE down there, knew it backward and forward, every little street and nook, in a way I've never really cozied up to Phoenix (largely because there are no BIKE PATHS here!).

I love Fringe! And I believe it was picked up for next season a while ago, but in any case, FOX announced their sched this morning and from what I read, it's there. As for ABC cancelling Fast Forward, PO'ed = me.

I discovered Fringe late, but now I have to go back and watch all of Season 1 -- it's AWESOME!

FlashForward fans appear to have crashed the ABC servers this afternoon voting to keep it, so... *snort*

It's a good episode.

I remember watching episode one and it didn't grab me, so I didn't catch it again until second season was underway, and NOW I'm definitely hooked. I have to rent S1 and watch it through.

it was on this afternoon. recorded it.

it took Fringe a while to seem like it was anything other than an x-file rip off and I'm still not fond of Olivia's actress but I like her character better. Last year I couldn't stand here and was watching for Peter and Walter

She isn't extremely notable, but yeah, I do love Walter and Peter. (Not to mention the super awesome alternate universe; I love love love that kind of stuff!)

Fringe is already announced as renewed for next year.

Yes, I know. I was being fatalist.
