I’ve really been enjoying the TV shows on Netflix. I watched through Bones, How I Met Your Mother, Warehouse 13, and Eureka. If you notice a trend… It only stands to reason that Doctor Who was on my list. They rebooted the show starting in 2005, and I’ve been working my way through all the episodes they have of Netflix. (I would like to go back and watch some of the original series when I’m done.)
I’m at the beginning of the 5th season now, and I love it. I feel that I’m living in a world where the Doctor lives, and it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if a big blue box appeared in front of me and the Doctor pops out. Watching all these episodes certainly is having an interesting effect on my nightly dreams… they have gotten very strange. ;-)
I don’t really have much else to say on the subject… I just felt it was worth a mention since I have spent so much time watching Doctor Who recently. :-) Since this is twentysixcats, it’s only appropriate to close with a meme of Doctor Who + cat. :-) It just made me laugh outloud. (It will only make sense if you’ve seen season 1.)
I love it when Firefly is referenced in other TV shows! Last night’s Community is the most recent shout-out. I knew it was coming thanks to this scoop from Michael Ausiello (who is my source for all my TV news):
Question: Any good news you can share about Community’s Annie and Jeff? —Megan
Ausiello: Um, aside from them sharing a couch in a hospital waiting room, there aren’t any Annie-Jeff developments in Thursday’s episode. Jeff does have a memorable encounter with Pierce, however. Oh, and there’s a Firefly reference! For those keeping track at home, that brings to 134 the number of times Joss Whedon’s classic has received a shout-out on a scripted series this season.
For our anniversary, some wonderful people watched Savannah for the evening while Paul and I got a chance to see a movie! Movies are one thing that are just hard to do with a baby. We went to see Toy Story 3 and enjoyed it very much. I did think it was a little on the scary side, though – are all those types of movies that scary, or do kids just not notice that? I guess I do remember getting scared by Disney movies when I was a kid, like The Little Mermaid and Mickey’s Christmas Carol (which has forever ruined that story for me – I still get chills when I think about the Ghost of Christmas Future! *shiver*).
Savannah did great with the Garrisons while we were gone! They took a video of her current mode of travel – scootching!
So, needless to say, she has gotten more mobile in the last week or so! She’s still not very fast, but I am having to start thinking about babyproofing more. One morning, I set her down on the floor of my room and fell asleep on the bed. I woke up to see her in the hallway, sitting at the top step looking down! Phew, talk about waking up fast. I went out and bought some baby gates and things for the kitchen cabinets. :-)
Today Savannah found the cat bowls. She tasted the cat food and happily splashed in the water bowl until it was empty, and then she proceeded to pick up said bowl and bang it against the floor. :-) It was cute.
I also started scrapbooking her first year. I have never really scrapbooked before, so this is a new experience for me. I have pictures from the first 11 months all ready to be placed on the pages, and I am also going to include the monthly letters. It’s a bit daunting/overwhelming, I think. I am much more comfortable designing on the computer where I do “undo” when I don’t like it. I have definitely enjoyed walking through the scrapbooking section of various craft stores, and I look forward to implementing the ideas I have so far. I need to do at least 5 pages a day to make my goal of getting this done before her birthday, and today I did 10 so I think I’m doing pretty good… Now to just keep it up!
While scrapbooking, I’ve been watching TV. For our anniversary, I got Paul season 2 of Leverage. I love that show! One thing I like about the DVDs are the commentaries for every episode. They are entertaining to watch, and really make the episode come more alive. I never realized how much effort they put into the details of the show. I am glad to hear it was renewed for a 4th season. I really, really miss having TNT and being able to watch it live! Actually, I really, really miss having cable in general.
So I might be scarce the next few weeks while I try and get this scrapbooking thing done. I have contemplated taking a break from the Internet in general while I try to get a handle on everything else going on in life (like our house), but I never seem to be able to actually cut myself off. I’ve been thinking about it for a while now, so maybe this project will be a forced break for me.
