Happy Cyber Monday !

Happy Cyber Monday..whatever the hell that is supposed to mean .
We managed to avoid the malls at all costs , I for one cannot begin to fathom the concept of the crush and the crowds for what little it seems one would save. Sadly , after the horrible accident on Thanksgiving morning on I - 10 headed east just oitside Beaumont, I was in no mood to get in a car at all. Thankfully, no one that we know was involved but some reports listed at least 140 vehicles ( both big rigs and passenger cars ) were involved, I cannot imagine the scope of it all.

We had a lovely , quiet Thanksgiving  which is more than I can say for some of the SIL broke her arm in an odd, bizarre home accident so after surgery including a couple of screws and a plate, she is on the mend . Her son and daughter in law went over to put up the tree because it was a case of " Get over here and put it up if you want the tree up " and the nephew is one of those curmudgeons in training who has a hissy of things are not as they have always been...I ignore it as he is a grown man and while I do not like change personally, the older I get the more I am able to not completely freak over change ..or at least I am actually trying which is more than I can say for a lot of people co-workers know who you are so nuff said on that bit.Of course that last bit is delusional at best for me since we are in the renovation mode. Seems to be a lot of that going steps steps.

I think that I am finally really going to put up the tree again this year...I need a bit of shiney in my life right now and I am trying to be a bit more organized this year. I have the Christmas cards here at the office with me today and so that is on the list of things that I have to get done here if I am going to take the last half of the month off...things to create for binders and logs for 2013.

Gawd that sounds weird..2013.

I am saddened by the death of Larry Hagman because among other things I do remember the 2 years that he was on " The Edge Of Night ", late mother was expect in the art of daytime soap operas..I kid you not..

And I am really pissed off that the Beeb cancelled season 5 of " Merlin." Good job there gentlemen, first " Robin Hood", and now " Merlin."

Am I pissed off ?

Did you read the "Caprica " rant ?

Le Sigh.

Have  a great week.....I'm off to get a bit of cyber shopping done before the day jumps into high gear.

Networks do vex me sorely.

Small silver lining. Robin Hood is now being shown daily on our secondary PBS feed. Can keep my Richard Armitage fix going until 12/14. :-D

I wonder how many showings I will be to that weekend? One for Martin, one for Richard, one for Ian, one for Hugo, one for Benedict (voice, anyhow)...

Re Caprica: Well, at least we can still drool over Sasha Roiz on Grimm. I know, small comfort, but the man is yummy.

Hope the SIL heals quickly!
