Ways to Tell I'm Getting Old

I now watch PBS for more than the comedies from England or the kids' shows. Am watching Great Performances right now - they're showing the revival of Driving Miss Daisy with Paul McCartney Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones. She plays southern very well. (I got sidetracked and watched the whole play - it's an excellent production.)

I also actually enjoy watching Face the Nation on the weekends. These used to be the boring things my parents watched.

Back in February when we went to the Ren Faire I bought myself one of the Goodly Woods wooden mugs, and I have loved it ever since. A couple of weeks ago, I finished washing it and went to set it in the dish rack when it decided to jump to the floor. This caused the wood to crack. I contacted Goodly Woods and asked about accidental dropage, which was not covered by the full replacement warranty, but he said it should be repairable. He had me ship it to him, and a week later I get it back, good as new, and it only got $20 to fix. I think I'll try to buy more from them.

Yup, he returned it in record time, charged me $15 for the repair and $6 for the shipping.

Totally awesome customer service. I'm drinking out of it now. :)

....they're showing the revival of Driving Miss Daisy with Paul McCartney Angela Lansbury...

*sigh* I miss my Craigyferg. Thank goodness for youtube!

I know, I couldn't help myself.

I still have the last month on my Tivo - haven't had the time to watch, and since they're all Christmasy, I figured I could hold onto them until November, and then they'll seem timely. (So no, I haven't seen the final episode yet!)

Cheers for the fixed mug!

And yes, I find PBS really watchable, and even more, I now want to go on a Viking River Cruise in Europe (after all the Masterpiece 'sponsor' advertisements). I'm embracing being a grown-up at least part of the time. :)

OMG, YES. I've wanted to go on a Viking River Cruise for ages, and they just keep making it seem more and more awesome (it's just SO expensive! Plus the cost of just getting to Europe!).

Maybe someday....

(Also enjoying Poldark. I think I could watch Aidan Turner in anything, though. Never imagined I'd be all in love with Kili the Dwarf!)

Glad they were able to repair the mug. It's a bummer when you break something you love but can't easily replace.
