I Am Extremely Lazy

Watching Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade for the first time in many years. Flipped channels to Syfy and it was on, and I couldn't turn it off. Still awesome.

Just finished re-watching all of Merlin, S1 - S3; I managed to somehow miss S4 when SyFy broadcast it in January -- very annoying that Tivo will only let me record a show on a single channel, and right now I'm set to catch it on BBCA. I don't know when S4 is going to turn up on BBCA. I may have to figure out how to find it elsewhere, 'cause it's also not on DVD Region 1 yet, and S5 is going to be starting soon.

Also watching Fringe from the beginning -- I started watching it somewhere in the middle of S2, I think, and never had seen any of S1 before. WOW, the arc started a lot sooner than I expected it had.

Didn't do a whole lot this weekend, other than some laundry; we did take edgedancer out for his birthday dinner, delicious Ethiopian food, NOM. With that, I am on Day 14 of my diet (might as well call it what it is), down ten pounds, and desperately craving bread tonight. It's not Atkins, but it's a protein-intensive, calcium-rich, low-carb thing, with no real focus on number of calories but three solid meals plus a snack, lots of water and green tea, with most of the daily carbs in the morning. Really easy, on the whole, to follow, and this intense for only the first 17 days. I'm determined to get back into the majority of my clothes.

Last week I dropped into a state of self-pity which I feel guilty about calling "depression," since, compared to many of my friends and acquaintances, I do NOT have anything even approaching same; nonetheless, I was aching inside for some unspecified reason, which led to everything generally sucking (and the firm conviction that Romney is going to win in November), so I decided against posting any of my cloying self-pity and focused instead on playing Fallen London and trying to write. I have my entire plot prepared in my head, I know where it's going, but it's not going there. I did some research and read my friends' journals and tweeted some and mostly felt sorry for myself for a few days. It broke on Friday afternoon and proved to me that I'm just a whiner (although I'm still worried about the whole Romney thing).

Merlin is it my VeryLongListOfThingsToWatch. Which is very long. Seriously. But it is very near the top.
And I really would love to rewatch Fringe from the begining. But I guess I'll save that for after the last. *sigh*
Still not over it.
I'm in the middle of Eureka right now.
...and wondering why they keep cancelling shows that I love? WHY?!


HUGE congrats on the 10 ponds. Anytime you don't think that is awesome- go pick up a 10 lb sack of potatoes and carry that around the grocery store for a bit. Then you'll be all...Go me! :)
Actually do that anyway, it will make you smile.

(By the way that state of self-pity you speak of? I call it a FUNK. I've been having one too.) Maybe it's the weather LOL! Glad you are feeling better :)

Merlin started out just one of those cheesy, harmless pleasures I picked up when NBC aired it a few years ago - now I'm trolling the Merlin Wiki and Communities, eager for more! I streamed the first three seasons on Netflix and want want want to see S4.

Eureka's on my long list, as well.

Still not over what? They haven't canceled Fringe -- we have one more season! They get to finish it! (I don't mind the end of shows if they get a chance to FINISH it!)

Oh, I know. Still another season of Fringe....but then it's gone! I'm just still in the denial stage ;)

Hugs -- and to you, too!

Re: Pimping MERLIN!
Generally I don't like watching TV on my computer, but I may have to...

Ethiopian food sounds lovely

I watch that Indy every time it comes on (or so it seems)

hope things are looking up

It is! I adore it -- and it's not too expensive. NOM!

This is the first time I remember running into it in a long while.

wonders if columbus has any ethiopian

one station (spike, tnt, syfy, can't remember which) has been rerunning all of them lately.

Don't know, you'll have to check it out.

Probably SyFy, that's where I was.
Jul. 10th, 2012 03:30 am (UTC)
yes I will

You can be depressed without having major depression (the diagnosis). And remember: LJ is for whining. At least, that's partly what I use it for. If you can't whine to faceless strangers, who can you whine to? (And just the fact that Romney might win makes me depressed, too. Did you hear Barney Frank's wedding vows to his husband included, "Under the Democrats or the Republicans?" Love it. Also, I'm already making plans to move to Canada - I can't decide between Toronto or Vancouver, just not Montreal. Yo hablo espanol, no frances.)

The Last Crucade is my favorite of all the Indiana Jones movies by far. So many fantastic lines - "We named the DOG Indiana" - and the chemistry between Ford and Connery is fantastic.

Well, yes... but I sometimes hate to make my friends feel like they have to give me a cheer-up comment! :)

Loving Barney Frank!

Yeah, it's always been my favorite -- it's just for one reason or another, I haven't seen it in a long, long time.
