My Geeky Holiday Weekend
A long weekend is always a welcome thing. Usually, I spend them lazying about, sleeping in and getting sucked into the joy that is mindless tv, Bridezillas anyone? This weekend was a celebration of my geekdom, aside from my Friday night pass out the min I got home...lack of sleep leads to budding colds.
Most of Saturday was sucked away by a Ghost Whisperer marathon on WE. Not a big fan of the show, but it came on as I left the living room to go do dishes and the Boy left it on as one of his celebrity girlfriends is Jennifer Love Hewitt, and he left it on, some how a large portion of the day was spent watching Melinda work her magic.
We followed that up with Serenity, which was playing on SyFy. I ADORE that movie, though whenever it's on tv, they tend to chop out some of my favorite lines....but then again, that is what Blue-Rays were made for.I have to admit, JJ Abram's and Joss Whedon are my entertainment writing heroes. I can only hope to be able to create worlds/characters that have close to the amount of reaction that they get. Yes, I realize that Star Trek isn't original Abrams, but even still.
After the mini Bond-fest, I switched to the 1st season of Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron. Anyone else remember that childhood joy? T-Bone, Razor and Calli Briggs? I used to LOVE that show growing up, plus the voice of Razor was also the voice of Donatello on the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. What can I say I'm a sucker for '80's/'90's cartoons.
Today is another football day for the boy, our living room has turned into Madden 2012 central, however I did manage to drag him away long enough for a trip to Bust Buy. I am now typing to you from Minxie, my brand new glorious Sony Vaio lap top! So I am fulfilling the last of my geeky weekend by downloading, customizing and installing all sorts of fun things to it.
