My TV is taking over my life.
Thank GOD I don’t have TiVo or I would honestly *never* leave my apartment!
So what have I been watching, you ask?
I lost my entire Sunday to a Project Runway* Marathon. I’m talking a full-on, 9-hour Marathon, peeps. I sat down at 11am, and didn’t move till 8pm. Paralyzed. Helpless. Addicted.
On top of that, TCM is running their annual 31 Days of Oscar. 31 days of ONLY Oscar nominated and Award-winning movies, commercial free. I turn that shit on, and it doesn’t matter WHAT is playing, I get sucked in. For hours. Some of the highlights?
- Cat on A Hot Tin Roof – 1958
- Dr. Zhivago - 1965
- Gaslight – 1944
- The Magnificent Seven – 1960
- Gone With The Wind – 1939
- It Happened One Night – 1934
- Born Free – 1966
- The Way We Were - 1973
- The Treasure of the Sierra Madre – 1948
- Rebecca – 1940
I could go on, but I’m tired of finding the links
Unfortunately, this means I’m also not doing a whole lotta knitting. I can’t Rogue (cables) and watch TV and thrumming only interests me for so long. I HAVE gotten in a bit of knitting though…
1/3 way through Thrum Mitten #2!
What’s that? A Finished Thrummed Mitten?? Although it’s not technically a FO, I can’t show a completed Thrummed Mitten without showing you the inside, so here ya go:
THRUM MONSTER!! GRRRR!!
I’ve also gotten back in my Rogue Saddle! I figure I’ll let the length-challenged sleeve sit for a while and move on to his brother… (If they’re THIS much of a pain in the ass, they HAVE to be boys!)
Sleeve #2 has been started!
New Baby Cables!
I need to start putting in a little more QT with Rogue, as she’s coming along rather s l o w l y. More Rogue, Less TV.
What else have I been up to? Not much, I guess… Well? Uh.. actually, um, this:
In my defense, I’ve had that box at least a week Oh, and that one whole bar of chocolate there? Yeah, it’s half gone now. (thanks again, Silvia!)
Heh. Chocolate gooooooooooooooood.
* how depressed am *I* that, in search of that link you for guys, I accidentally found out that Jay WON Project Runway BEFORE I actually got to go home and WATCH the finale? Goddamnit.
