The simple truth is that I'm geeking out on tv, books, and movies right now. I'm not eating badly, mostly. I'm working long and hard crazy hours. I'm doing at least 2 hours at the gym and 2 hours of at home exercise every week. I go to bed early or on time during the workweek but stay up till 2 or 4 am on the weekends (catching up with my shows or reading). God bless the dvr creator and the Kindle creation team.
-Seen : Snow White and The Huntsmen--I really liked it. 4 Stars. I cried. Sometimes tears just fell down my face and I didn't know I was crying. I haven't cried at a movie in a very long time. Crying at movies was the only way my frozen chunk of a heart used to experience real crying. The movie has its little issues, but it is easily as epic and visually stunning as any Hobbit or Potter movie.
-Seen and Reseen a few times: Sherlock the British Tv series that ran recently on PBS. Un-Effing-believable television.
"His brain has more apps than an iPhone"
-Seen: The Mad Men
-Seen: Game of Thrones finale. Definitely, the finale. Definitely. I just can't let myself read or research ahead to see what happens to Tyrion-the imp (my favorite character).
-Read: "Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire #1 "
I just finished book 1 and I'm taking a break from the kingdom for a while before I start up book two. Book 1 really heated up at the end though, and I was just a finger touch away from ordering book two on the purple Kindle when I remembered that it took me a solid month to read book 1. I need a break. And for all the Thrones fans "Winter is coming".
-Seen: Girls on HBO. Raunchey, but I love it. It reminds me of my 20's, and visiting NYC and petty 20 something self- absorption. Favorite character: Shoshanna-this actress is also in Mad Men but all of her scenes require re-watching over and over just for fun. The "crackaccident" scene and "the ladies" scene. you tube it. Am I too old for this? My husband hates it and thinks it is bad for me.
-Seen: Nurse Jackie on Showtime. Yep, I have all the cable channels apparently. I love this show too.
-Reading: "The Heart is the Lonely Hunter" by Carson Mccullars...old school. I can't believe she was like 23 when she wrote this ( she was a bit more literary than those 20-something girls in Girls) . I'd never read it before and had bought it at a used book store years ago. I'm in the mood for southern lit.
They filmed this movie in Alabama in the 60's and actually filmed a scene or two in my hometown. I was there and maybe only 4 or so at the time. I do remember the big lights they used. My momma was seen in the film for about 8 seconds wearing a pencil skirt and black cat-eye sunglasses. I was too busy playing on the antique fire truck to pay them any mind. But the seed was planted in my wee little heart for a love of movies.
-Heard: They are filming Amc's The Walking Dead here in the 'country suburbs' of Atlanta as of this week. I was considering a drive out to watch them film but then read that they only film Monday thru Friday when I'm working. Bummer.
-Seen: I caught most of The Smurfs movie with Neil Patrick Harris on cable and liked it. Then saw NPH and his partner being interviewed by Oprah. I heart NPH. The Smurfs were more my husband's generation than mine so he had to school me a bit to understand the Smurf mythos.
-And Finally, True Blood starts up again this coming weekend. I'm a True Blood fan, but the last season wore me out a bit. For the True Blood books' fans, if only Bubba was in this season.
If you notice I don't watch any of the singing and dancing shows or any of the nci fbi csi whatever shows. I avoid the Food network for obvious reasons. There are various things that I get sucked in to that are truly embarrassing and addictive (besides Girls) "Bethanny Ever After", "Don't Be Tardy For The Wedding", "Sister Wives", and "House Hunters".
I know ..Get a life. (Oh, can't wait to see Prometheus!)
