Thanks for Five Fabulous Years
If you're a fan of a certain show like me, then you'll be sad that today is the first day after the end of an era. Alias is no more. I really don't get how 'they' can just cancel a show because 'they' see that the ratings have dropped! I have been a fan since Day 1, and i'm not alone in this love/obsession. Sure it's not #1 in the ratings, but who cares, there is a HUGE fan base. I know all the story lines, character/actor names, and have never missed a show. Even when i lived in KZ for a year, my friends game me detailed (read: pages long) summaries and mailed me a tape of Alias episodes.
Oh well, i did cancel my cable in January (but am still getting free cable...shhh), so now i can turn off the TV and get back my life free of the couch. I did cancel cable to devote more time to crafts, reading, and good ole quality time, so maybe i'll get me some of that...
On to other news, i had a fabulously relaxing long weekend, even though it was terribly cold outside. My honey celebrated 32 years yesterday and we were at a cottage all weekend. I was the only female - two human males and two cat males = a lot of testosterone! But, i was a craft whiz. I knit my cape (almost done), one baby bootie, and finished the hand work on the quilt! Yea! I also started on some tin can flower pins (from Super Crafty!) and cooked a lot of good, rich, heavy food.
We also watch a shitload of movies: some good, some okay, some terrible,some creative (Everything is Illuminated), some disappointingly unsuprising (The New World), some sweet (Shop Girl) and some classics (The Birds).
My friend, Tom is an avid kite surfer and while the weather was too cold for me to go outside (and why bother when there's so much to do INside, he went out twice to do some 'sessions.'While he did that, I went garage sale shopping with J and scored on an oil tin (a cool vase) and this set for $8 - and i love that we have friends named Tom and Jer!
I just love cottage weekends when i can get away from the city, sleep for hours, do nothing, wear no make-up, and rejuvanate!
