I Wish I Could Remember Dreams

But I never do. I just have a vague sense of having been somewhere and done something and sometimes there are disjointed scenes -- but that's it. Somewhere buried deep in my head there are tremendous stores of strange things...

My goodness, Tom Mison is pretty. And my enjoyment at watching him eases my strong desire to have SOMEONE do Ichabod Crane the way Washington Irving described him... This is a fun, fun show, though. The excellence of the acting and the humor of the dialogue saves the situations, which would be ludicrous with a less talented cast and crew. (We don't watch it live because Barb has to work on her newsletter on Mondays, so we're watching it now.)

They claim it MIGHT rain tomorrow or Thursday. I won't hold my breath.

I won the office football pool this week! Woot! The guy who runs it called in sick today, so I'm not sure how MUCH I won (I think there's about twenty people who play, so that's about a hundred bucks!) -- and this was the week I gave up on reading the experts and playing the picks; I just grabbed the thing and went for the teams I like best. That seemed to work!

I chopped up a lot of greens and made a big salad for dinner, with salad shrimp and crumbled goat cheese. Quite delicious!

I'm the same way with dreams, and it's very frustrating. :-(

Congrats on the win!

I know!

Tom Mison IS very pretty.

I didn't know Sleepy Hollow is a limited run this year (I was just reading that or that's what I thought I read)

It would be one of those shows which would do nicely if it had an ending planned -- so I wouldn't be sorry if it IS a limited run (with maybe an option for another series, if it's possible...?).

it's limited this year but already renewed for next year (like Under the Dome I guess but I'm not as excited about that one coming back as you are)

I don't know that I'd call it "excited" -- I don't really know how long they can sustain that story. I was expecting only an ENDING, not some lame "what happened?" wrapup.

Ah I see, well yes in that case I want that too but to be honest I didn't connect with any of these characters.

I don't know that I connected, really, with any of them, but I cannot remember ever wanting to see a bad guy punished as badly as I wanted to see Big Jim smacked...

Oh we're in agreement there and from what I've heard, he was even worse in the book (the one I'm too lazy to read)

I'm going to have to read the book (I'm reading King's new one now, the sequel to "The Shining" -- it's pretty good, thus far).

I want to read Dr. Sleep. I'll be honest I'm losing patience with really long books such as Under the Dome. I don't know why
Oct. 11th, 2013 02:20 am (UTC)
Like I said, good so far. It's been years since I read The Shining and all the mental images are just flooding back....

After reading the Dumas books, even Stephen King doesn't seem "really long" to me... :D

I considered rereading The Shining for that very reason but decided not to.

Snort. There is that. I don't know what it is. Any more if a book is over 250 pages I get impatient. And every book is over 250 pages.

Sleepy Hollow so far has managed the difficult task of fully committing to their narrative insanity whilst still enjoying their own foolishness and not taking themselves seriously. It's a gift. :)

And Tom Mison is SO pretty.

I agree! (On both counts!)
