the quip-off

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

Monday night brought two new eps (Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow) that I didn’t watch right away, since clearly Dancing With The Stars took up all my early-in-the-week viewing energy. (It was the finale!) Both shows have essentially the same premise: Cop with troubled past suddenly gets an unusual partner. Together, they fight crime and […]

light count

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

*As of two days before Thanksgiving, there were 21 light-up holiday displays of exuberance on my drive home. *Two were blatantly Thanksgiving-themed, including one enormous glowing inflatable turkey. (Not kidding.) *Last year on December 5th I counted 84, so I’m guessing lots of people will be putting lights up this weekend. Here’s a photo. I […]

Today’s high temperature: 26(F) Wednesday’s predicted high temperature: 51(F) Makes perfect sense. (This is what my weather widget predicts for the week: 26, 32, 42, 51, 29, 30. It’s like a fortune cookie ‘lucky numbers’ thing or something.)

Well, I guess this is where we find out whether or not my boss reads my blog. I’m thinking about leaving my job. I mean, I like my job. Most of the time. But I think a few months of serious job searching will either 1) find me a job that fits me better, or […]

Sleepy Hollow ep 8

“Last I heard, he was dead.” “Rules on that status have gotten a little bendy.” “He’s… unhappily resurrected.” -Captain Irving / Abbie / Crane *The FIST BUMP. I heart it. *Jenny: “That’s why I wasn’t worried.” *Captain Irving’s recurring ‘you have *got* to be kidding me’ face is A+ awesome. *One word: GENERATORS. *Can you […]

gotta catch ’em all

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Since there are so many awesome Christmas movies (Die Hard 2, I’m not counting you!), I figured I’d better start early. The list as it currently stands in my netflix queue: *Rise of the Guardians (sure, technically it’s an Easter movie, but Santa’s in it!) *Scrooged (this one was recommended to me last year, and […]
