Snugs! @ 04:32 pm

Current Mood: cheerful cheerful

The last update I made was kind of lame, so I wanted to post something more upbeat and happy :)



Things at work have been going well considering everything that happened, so I'm not complaining about it. Honestly, I kind of like not having to worry about the responsibility of VP, and I am able to help everyone else with their jobs, so everyone gets out in a timely manner which makes me feel good.

Lucian was sick with a stomach bug for a couple days, but he was feeling better today, so we took him and Nox out to the park and of course took pics. I just got him a haircut to, but haven't gotten a pic of that yet.

I'm feeling pretty good after writing my last paper for my current class, and I'm going to attempt to get my next assignment done this weekend (so I don't have to worry about homework until I get back in town next weekend! =D Jason and I are going out to visit friends at Dragoncon Thursday night (going to put back some drinks and make merry, sleep it off in Scott's hotel room, and head back home Friday day!) We set up a babysitter a month ago to do this, and I'm super stoked! XD

I've been posting a few videos and pics over at Facebook (because it's really easy to do there through my phone, and I've been too lazy to go through the process of sharing here...) Honestly, I haven't been online anywhere near as much as I used to be. Lately I've been sucked in to playing Elder Scrolls Online, and the free time not spent with the children has been spent getting lost in that dang game LOL! It is a lot of fun, so forgive me if I'm not around as much for a while oO

I did want to share pics and vids with you guys that you've been missing of course :P

Grr... Having trouble sharing, so I'm just going to link you guys. Let me know if you have issues with them...

Videos!

I hope you guys are doing well. LJ has been kind of quiet these days, but I gather with summer and all, folks are out and about and what not.

Is everyone (that watches TV) getting geared up for the new seasons to come?

I still have a ton of shows on my DVR I REALLY need to watch like ASAP before the new season starts oO I've got the whole 2nd season of True Detective, all the newest Hell on Wheels, and the new show Fear of the Walking Dead (which I'm looking forward to!) to watch before the new shows come spilling on to prime time.

I'm kind of sad that this will be the last season of Hell on Wheels, so I gather that is why I've been hesitating to watch it *pout*

We decided to check out that show Whispers, and honestly, it sounded like an interesting premise, but the plot decisions are so way unrealistic, we are planning on watching the last show for the season and are going to be done with it (really shouldn't have stuck it out this long, but I'm such a completest! oO

What shows are you guys watching/looking forward to coming back on this season?

I'm glad to hear that work hasn't been miserable for you after everything that happened.

I saw the first episode of Fear the Walking Dead, and I enjoyed it. I'm most looking forward to Gotham, Scorpion, The Originals, and Elementary coming back.

I haven't heard any bad reviews for FtheWD yet, so I guess that's good news :)

You know I'm excited for the return of Gotham! I'm looking forward to their Riddler evolution as well as to seeing what Oswald is going to be up to now that he's managed to scrabble to the top :P

Fear the Walking Dead didn't really wow me out of the gate. Like, it is fine and well made and everything, but it is kind of exactly what it says it is on the box.

Yeah? I haven't had the chance to watch it yet, and often times pilot episodes are a bit meh compared to the rest of the show when it's a spin-off. We will see though. I usually try to give a show a good 3 or 4 episodes before I put a rating on them :P

Yeah, I know pilots of comedies are especially harsh the first time out, people don't have chemistry and characters aren't fully developed. I agree with you even in dramas, but occasionally shows DO wow me or have something especially memorable, and then I HAVE to come back.

*nods* Indeed! I've seen a few shows like that where the pilot was amazing, and the show either continued in that vein or turned into a pile of poo LOL!

Nah not lame at all, good to see you around. :)

I don't have anything I'm watching right now. I want Game of Thrones and Orange is the New Black to come back, but that's going to take until next year. And of course BBC Sherlock, but Benedict Cumberbatch is busy with other stuff (and his wife has a Cumberbun in the oven), so I don't see that happening any time soon.

I just hate being negative especially in my posts. Sometimes venting is needed though :/

"and his wife has a Cumberbun in the oven"

LOL! Perfect comeback ;)

Gods I can't wait for GoT to come back! And OitnB! I've become quite addicted to those two series :)

I've yet to watch the BBC Sherlock, although I have a feeling I'll really like it when I finally get around to it

Sometimes you gotta vent. That's one thing LJ is great for!

I think you'd love BBC Sherlock. I was so resistant, since when I thought "Sherlock", I pictured old, stodgy and dust-covered. But this series is...fucking brilliant. I was riveted from the get-go. Here's a freebie link to the first episode (streaming, no malware), if you want to check it out: http://www.watch-tvseries.net/series245/Sherlock/season-01-episode-01-A-Study-in-Pink

Since I mostly watch cartoons, all of the new seasons for me will be in the spring of next year. Boo. =( (cartoon seasons come out in the spring, usually, and go through summer) Although it’s okay, since I have a lot I need to catch up on as it is. Just waiting for Netflix to update them all with this year’s seasons. I think the newest seasons of Ultimate Spiderman and Avengers Assemble are about to be wrapped up on regular TV, so they should be added to Netflix very soon. *is about to scream*

I still need to watch the first season of the new Transformers series too. Been meaning to do that for several months.

Netflix is pretty dang cool especially for animated shows. I still haven't gotten to check out the How to Train your Dragon show :/

Glad to hear that your work situation is better.

I have to admit that I don't watch much TV nowadays. We don't actually have any of the good channels so that sort of limits my viewing choices. I am looking forward to the news season of Doctor who that starts on the 19th.

Fear the Walking Dead...thumbs up! True Detective Season Two...thumbs not so up! Season one was much better. Biggest question mark for me this season will be Supergirl.

I am loving Fear the Walking Dead... of course it figures since I also love the Walking Dead ;)

True Detective wasn't horrible, it did end on a bad note though :/
