    I'm curious what you think about it!
    I watched the first few eps, thought it was clever but predictable and I lost interest.

    Was out at cousin's fabulous bat mitzvah party in the afternoon then the boy and I went to a friend's amazing one woman show about how she learned to love her body through becoming a belly dancer. Tomorrow night I fly to Vancouver for a week of adventure. Plans so far include snowshoeing, skiing, kayaking and drinking wine and eating sushi. Yay!

      Headache, nap, dinner and several hours later (and halfway into tonight's Castle -- there's Nana Visitor guest starring!), I'm finally done with catching up on the thread. I haven't been on here for even longer than I thought. How I've missed you Woohoos! *hugs all around*

      Beware the massive MQ.

      I have to agree with Josi. Lots of TV talk going on!

      Martin Gero (Stargate Atlantis, Bored to Death) is hard at work on his brand new series The L.A. Complex (formerly Highland Gardens), which is set to make its Canadian premiere tonight at 9 p.m. (E/P). The show has filmed a six-episode first season for MuchMusic and CTV and could be picked up for a U.S. run on The CW, according to Deadline. [UPDATE: The CW made it official today, and will air the show in the spring.]

      This is from the home page on GW. Martin Gero was also on a national morning show in Canada this morning discussing the show. BTW, one of the stars is Jewel Staite.
      I saw commercials for that show... It seems to be the type of show I usually despise, but I'm happy to know one of our folks is working on it! Good for him!

      I am very excited to announce that I've been offered a FANTASTIC job with a practice in Cambridge, MA!! I am over the moon. It's a great practice where I feel like I can really make a home and stay for a long, long time. Great salary, great benefits, great location. I won't be starting until May or June because of the credentialing process, but that's okay. YAY! Very, very thrilled. I am so happy that this came up when things were looking so gloomy. You've all been amazing supports through this whole thing and I am so glad to be able to share my happiness with you!
      *dances around and throws confetti* So happy for you MoB!

      That was too true for me not to quote it and say I completely agree.

      Cell phone is calling and texting for me too. I have an iPod Touch for my music and I sometimes use it when I have wifi access -- like when I'm at school and don't feel like taking out the whole laptop only to check something on the internet.

      So, how are the Wii and Wii Fit working out so far? I tried it once or twice at a friend's house. If you really do the exercises, I think it could be pretty challenging!

      You know, I find clipping is the worst part of vidding. I have so many ideas for Sanctuary vids, but I fail at making clips and I tire before even getting to vidding. *sighs* I've made two vids in my life and thank god they were only 20-30 seconds long, lol.

      Ben: one two three four... five six seven eight... nine ten eleven twelve.... mummy it's twelve."
      Me: "Very good so it is. Well worked out"
      Ben: "What's four plus four plus four plus four plus four"
      Me: "Well work that out too."
      Ben "Well I know three lots of four are twelve so... thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen.... seventeen eighteen ninteeen twenty... mummy it's twenty!"

      ... he then went on to do the same with threes and worked out that three times four is the same as four times three... FCOL, they're only just starting to introduce them to the concept of counting to 10 at school and he's on multiplication already!
      Clever boy!

      The sneak peek was awesome indeed! And the episode is turning out quite good too for now!

      OUAT -- I love that show! At first, I thought it would be too cheesy, and I was doubtful when my friend got me to watching it, but I was surprised to see it wasn't overly so -- for my taste anyway. My Sunday nights are all spent in front of the TV since then. I love how they twist and re-invent old fairy tales.

      EDIT cause I forgot to tell -- There was Jack's cabin in last night's episode! I had to laugh when the main couple/non-couple of the show went inside to shelter from a storm.

      I asked myself the same question when I finally got around to watch it! I've been through the first two seasons in about six days. I'm waiting for my friend to finish season 3 so I can borrow it from her.

      House -- I think that's my biggest disappointment TV Show-wise. The S6 finale was so perfect. How could they get S7 so wrong? Have you watched S8? I haven't even bothered to finish the 7th.

      It was Josi that made the AT5 card
      Yes! Well, at least it's up here for you all to enjoy.

      And yes, I saw that while catching up!

        Hello....I know no one is home right now, but today I felt really good and I didn't cough that much so I got back to working on my book. Don't have a lot of energy yet, but it's coming back.

        Oh, I have a doctor's appt on Feb 1st for a complete checkup....funny, but that is the first day of my Social Security insurance as well!

        Well, getting late, time to get ready for bed. Have to wake up early tomorrow so I can Skype to Costa Rica and talk with an old college friend.

        Everyone have a great day!

          Morning peeps.

          Wow loads of TV talk here, and some fab new artwork! Yay.

          I did lurk a bit here yesterday but had the most horrendous headache. Still feeling fuzzy headed today (don't think the weather is helping) and a bit tickly throated, so frantically dosing myself up in case those pesky woohoo germs have gone trans-Atlantic.

          Can't go back and MQ everyone... brain hurts too much for that.... but...

          Yay MOB Have a fab time in Vangroovy.

          Yay Laurie for being (and sounding by your posts) way better. Good luck on the check up. I hope they find everything in order.

          Ickybah in TV/films? Nope, not for me. I agree with the consensus that it's much better when it fades to the fireplace. Although I'm not averse to a bit of ickybah in writing/fanfiction if done tastefully and, actually, not even averse to a bit of PWP if it's clearly marked and that's what I'm in the mood to read. I rarely am though; I'd rather plough through some decent fiction...

          ...speaking of decent fiction. Benjabubs and me are half way through the second Famous Five book right now. Now I know everyone hails Enid Blyton as one of our greatest authors and all that but she could have done with a decent editor. I don't think she every heard of the existence of the humble comma, much less a colon or semicolon. Frangemented Sentences R Us! But the stories are still good and I can almost forgive her for the "boys don't cry" and "an only child is an odd and difficult child" stereotypes. Apparently in later books I have Julian's snobbishness and latent racism to look forward to too. Joy! Gotta remember when they were written and all that.

          Umm, Umm... the Wii fit Jakie? Still in the box. It's a sort of surprise for the wee man's birthday so I've not set it up yet and it'll go up on the 1st. Expect reports of aching limbs and possibly broken furniture after that date.



          I'm supposed to be over the allotment today preparing it for planting next month...


          ...*glances and persistent heavy drizzle*...


          ... yeah, not happening today!

                        Yeah I know. I was so excited and then it fast went ridiculous! I can totally understand that the actress who played Lisa Cuddy left the show! It was getting really weird. I'm still watching it sort of but not really following it anymore!


                        And we're only PG on TV...other than that still guttery
                        As for fanfiction I like smut every now and then but a good story is better

                          I'm not so sure - I've gone to great lengths to uphold my reputation, and now I've spoiled it with one little sentence

                          Well, today is a Red-Letter Day......... it's the day my 23-year-old daughter found out that, actually, there are some things that Mummy can't fix

                                It's a long story, but basically I've been telling her for months that she needed to get her new address on everything - bank account, driving license, phone bill etc, because at some point she may need to prove her address (plus, I'm really fed up with having all her post sent here and having to get it to her ), but she didn't do anything about it. Today, she needs to see a doctor fairly urgently, but her local surgery won't register her and give her an appointment until she can show some ID with her present address on it, which she doesn't have. She's already had her one unregistered appointment, so they won't let her have another one. There's absolutely nothing I can do, except tell her how to sort it out for herself, which I have now done (and without saying 'I told you so' ). So yes, time to grow up and accept that Mummy's magic wand doesn't always work
