2013 will always be the year of the TV show graveyard for me. Is it strange that I’m proud of the amount of TV I dropped in the last year? It felt ridiculously good to let go of so much.
I said farewell to Revenge, True Blood and The New Girl. Started and stopped the UK version of The Bridge – The Tunnel. Gave The Crazy Ones a decent shot, but that got old real quick. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D was just woefully bad and boring and poor. The Blacklist went a little bit too Alias on me a little too quickly.
It’s the evening of August’s summer bank holiday. I’ve had my three-day weekend. Back to work tomorrow to a four-day working week. Summer is nearly over. Usually that’d make me a little bit sad. Summer’s my favourite season. I’m enjoying all the long, hot days. Warm evenings and nights. It’s brilliant. But. The end of August means the beginning of September which means it is mere days until I head to Bahrain. WOO!
So what’s happened in the past week?
There was a plan to post something during the week. But my laptop decided to die. Okay, let me correct that. Windows decided to die. For, possibly, the third time in 6 months Windows 7 on my laptop had freaked out while, I think, trying to do an update and the operating system just died. Start-up loop. JOY. Thankfully, because a) this has happened so many times and b) all my data is stored on my Synology NAS, it’s not too much of a big deal to have to re-install Windows and start from scratch on my laptop. Just a pain having to re-install drivers and software and what not.
It wouldn’t be a total lie if I were to say that Apple Macs are suddenly seeming an attractive alternative. If they weren’t so bloody expensive.
Here endeth the moaning.
It’s been one of those weeks where I keep meaning to post but I never do. For no real reason. Other than. Well, like I said. No real reason. So what’s up? Here’s a quick run down…
- You might have noticed (or not) that I’ve stopped posting my 365 photos. See there’s a reason for that. The reason being there might not be any photos. Carelessly forgot to take a photo one day. Once you skip one, it’s easy to skip others. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!
- Started a new job last week. I am officially an Email Specialist now. It’s all very exciting
- Downside of my new job is that it’s in the city and I’m stuck with commuting on the tube. It’s not that bad. But it is hella expensive and more often than not, smelly. Ahhh… I did it for 5 years before. I can suck it up now!
- And on the subject of commuting, it’s making me get back to reading. So hopefully I’ll get to finish The Magus soon.
Breaking Bad – All Hail the King
Breaking Bad is finally back! Oh my words. It feels like it’s been years since the last season. Well, a year. Feels like longer.
This entry’s going to have a bit about season 5’s opener, so if you haven’t seen it, I suggest you go away!
