I'm Missing Something...

The Labor Day Twilight Zone Marathon. Okay, SyFy is showing a truly horrible movie about interstellar vampire hunters, so the day's not completely wasted, but how am I supposed to get through a Labor Day without some Rod Serling?


This is the one I really wanted -- it's not overly colorful, but I love the green-on-green pattern, and it's authentic (as in, "Made in Hawaii").




I have only one non-spoilery thing to say about this week's Doctor Who: Best Mark Gatiss episode since The Unquiet Dead. While I like him as an actor (he plays a great Mycroft), his writing is sometimes spotty. This one was great, some of the best lines for the Doctor in an age, and Matt Smith was on the top of his game. Am pleased. Will not be in town next Saturday... I hope framefolly has BBCA!

So yesterday I did something I never seem to have time to do much anymore, just read a book (a real papery book, even).


Since I missed Caturday yesterday:




I realize it may not sound so to most folks, but we're going to be leaving 100+ temperatures here (after weeks of 110+ temperatures) with overnight lows in the upper 80's to mid 90's and little to no precipitation and next week will apparently be in overnight lows of 61 with it looks like 20% chances of rain every day (at least through Sunday, which is as far as the website goes), so for us, it's gonna be a little chilly, if not outright cold. New Yorkers may laugh at us.


"Hey! Hey! Pay attention to me!" *poke poke*




And now the SyFy movie is about werewolves in what appears to be a girl's insane asylum. With who appears to be a low-pay Eliza Dushku. Priceless.


I laid out my yoga mat, went to get a drink of water, and came back to find this:

Yeah, I know YOU have nice thick blood. Mine has been very badly thinned by my decades here.

And he has a cute face, too.

if it's any consolation, if I were coming there, you'd be laughing at me as I turned into a sweat ball and died

Ages ago (As in mid-80s), I was in Phoenix to spend Christmas with Mom and attend my sister's wedding. Everywhere we went, Mom was telling me to take my coat, it would be cold. I carried my jacket everywhere, wishing I had thought to pack shorts for the trip. And I kept being laughed at for commenting how hot it was...

And it even got cold in the winters in Phoenix in the 80's. (As in actually freezing -- it snowed in '86.)

Our temp went from 106 on Friday? Saturday? and yesterday dropped down to the 70's. The high today is in the mid-60's.

I'm surprised I'm not sick.

I love the green shirt, too!

And hahaha to the cats.

Caturday was two days ago, though, just FYI.

It's going down slowly here -- should "only" be 101 by next Sunday, with overnights dropping into the low 80's. Finally. Hopefully by the time we get home, it'll actually be September.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Sunday/Monday holiday blur into one day. :D

Good luck. :D

It is one big blur, isn't it? I'm trying to remember when we went to the Vietnam Memorial traveling Wall, and Vietnamese food, and am drawing such a blank, and it had to either have been Friday or Saturday. But which day?

It didn't help that I dozed off a couple times on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons!

Noooo, that wouldn't help at all.

...don't feel bad; I got up today, went back to bed an hour later, didn't get up 'til about noon.

Oops.

My work hours are so early now "sleeping in" means 7 or even 7:30. I slept all the way until 8 today!

Heee. Sleeping in for me means sleeping past 7:00 generally; but I can go much later.

Yeah, that, too.

Rogue likes to sleep on my head/pillow when it's chilly, so she was climbing on me last night, trying to find a comfy, warm place, since we weren't in "our" bed.

I've been feeling rather too warm here, but not Phoenix-style ;)

I'm sorry...I don't have BBCA. We don't even get any regular tv -- our tv just plays dvds and wii because we're cheapskates. But I'm sure we can find someone who does if you want -- want me to put feelers out? Maybe The Way Station shows it, in which case we can go on Saturday instead of Sunday?

Personally right now I feel comfortable for all the temperatures from morning to night and outdoors and indoors with a t-shirt, a comfortable pair of jeans, loose pants, or skirt, and some sort of easy-to-carry cover up like a scarf, a thin cardigan, or a long sleeved shirt. As long as the shoes are comfortable, everything else is layerable ;) .

SO EXCITED!!!!

It's been so hot here lately that 75-80 SOUNDS downright chilly. It'll probably be quite nice once we're there!

Oh noes! Well, I'll have to be patient until we get home to see The Girl Who Waited. My Tivo will be capturing everything while I'm gone, knock wood.

The bar doesn't have anything on the schedule for Sunday night; and, oddly, nothing Doctor-Who-related for Saturday ("The Art of Steampunk" book event and then the group Ghost This, who apparently play "nerd rock"). Of course, looking over their schedule, it looks like they have Doctor Who nights when they have several things to show, so it's possible they have to get licensing for specific broadcasting.

I've packed a cardigan and a hoodie. Just in case! Probably won't need 'em, but good to have just in case!
