This was a good weekend

If you read wishweaver's blog, you are probably familiar with the fact that she and the daughter-unit are big fans of NUMB3RS. I am enjoying the show, but like many things, I find some moderation is good, so I'm way behind where they are.

Still, the episode we watched today was a lot of fun. Called Graphic, it dealt with an "ashcan" comic book that would be worth millions, a really obnoxious comic artist turned businessman (hmm, wonder who that could have been), a former comic legend who's trying to get the book returned to him (sounds damn familiar) and it's set in what could have passed as the San Diego ComiCon. Story aside, I loved the detail they invested in making it really feel like the scenes were taking place at a convention. Also, the fact that Wil Wheaton and Christopher Lloyd were the two main guest stars just capped the enjoyibliity. (Plus, getting to watch Christopher Lloyd and Judd Hirsch at the end of the episode was a nice touch.) If you haven't checked it out and are a comic geek, (like me), I recommend catching it on "On Demand" or downloading it from some place like iTunes.

Went out again this afternoon to write. Spent some quality time on Shattered Mirror, finally making some of the changes April and I had discussed for this chapter. I was really getting into the story and I hope to devote some extra time to it over the next few weekends. Wasn't able to spend as much time on it as I had hoped, but still knocked out 2,837 words. After dinner tonight, I returned to the Endless and worked on Chronicles, adding another 1,483 words to Chapter Twenty. All in all, I wrote 4,320 words today and 10,490 words for the weekend.

Go me! *grin*

Who knows, maybe some of them will even survive the first set of edits.

Uh huh. So sayeth Mr. I-Can-Watch-Something-I'm-Interested-In-For-Hours-At-A-Shot.

Not buying that one, bud. ;-)

I have watched "hours" of NUMB3RS at a shot (especially since it's an hour-long show), with you.

I haven't done a massive "watch every disk in a series" back to back to back for about three years.

For the record: I did watch the ROBOTECH series one disk a night until I finished all three seasons, and we watched the first two box sets of You're Under Arrest that way.

I prefer to savor them a bit more these days.

Of course, if you're referring to watching the NFL from 1300-2300 on Sundays. I plead guilty.

I thought the title I gave you was non-specific and all encompassing enough. ;-)

    Thanks! For some reason I was really sweating the LitCrit class. It wasn't easy by any stretch, but I think I made it harder on myself by overthinking stuff.

    Just one class this fall (schedule just…

    I'm going to take a critique of Dracula based on one school of literary criticism (say, Neo-Marxist) and then deconstruct that critique using the focus of a different school of theory (say feminist,…

    Not this year, alas. But I may well take you up on that next time :)

    Well, if you want to fly over here, I can put you up at my place and get you a guest ticket. *grin* Might even try to get your opinion of my scotch collection.

    Airfare is on you, though.
