I'm Back. Sort Of.

Checking in from the library again. Only 48 more hours! I keep chanting that to myself. Keep your fingers crossed that there are no technical difficulties. Please.

So, experimenting with the bus system today. Definitely does not take an hour one way. More like half an hour from my front door to whatever building on campus I'm heading for. So that is good news. Plus, all the bus drivers are very nice and greet you as you get on the bus. The anti-social misanthrope in me is having a difficult time adjusting.

And my apartment is finally set to rights and everything is out of boxes. Which means I'm a little less scattered and much more sane. I just forgot to upload the photos I took, so that will have to wait for a bit.

Finally, have become completely obsessed with the first season DVDs of Pushing Daisies. I had almost forgotten about the show, what with the writer's strike preempting its return after Christmas. But, I treated myself to the DVDs at Costco the other day (still much, much cheaper than the monthly cable bill) and am remembering how wonderful the show was. So, my mission for you, dear readers, is to get to your nearest Blockbuster, Red Box, public library or Netflix account and start watching. You'll thank me. And the new season starts October 1st. Mark your calendars!

P.S. I'm a bit behind in my TV viewing, as I'm doing it strictly online, so a new series-centric blog is in the offing. You'll just have to be patient.

Started watching Pushing Daisies online. It is pretty funny. It reminds me of Nanny McPhee with its storytelling style.
Did you see Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day? Because the guy who plays Ned is in it. FYI

Did see Miss Pettigrew, although I didn't know Ned was in it until he appeared and then the accent threw me for a bit. But I liked it, although there was (and I say this as someone who enjoys James Bond movies) an alarming amount of nudity in it. I don't know if I just wasn't paying attention when I read the reviews or something, but I just wasn't expecting it. And even though he has aged, I still love Ciaran Hinds. The original Capt. Wentworth.

P.S. Loving the on campus wi-fi, although I will probably be crippled from lugging the laptop everywhere I go.
