RTT: TV junkie

Tuesday! Again! Funny how they always come after Monday, isn't it?


*If I ever own a horse that runs in the Kentucky Derby (What?  It could totally happen.), I'm going to name it Pants on the Ground (as in "lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground").  I don't know why, I just think it's funny.  James Bond said he would name his horse Dead Last.

*Some of the women over on a home school board that I post on seem to be in lust with my sweet Johnny Depp.  They obviously do not know of the long relationship Johnny and I share.  Apparently they are all delusional.  Clearly, I am not.

*WTH is up with commercials being so much louder than the show your watching?  I remember having this issue in the States, but until recently (other than on Disney XD where they try to brainwash your child into buying weird toys by playing the commercials ridiculously loud), we have not had this problem over here.  AFN for some reason now blasts all their commercials and it is highly annoying.  We have to keep the remote next to one of us so we can mute it when a commercial comes on, it's THAT loud.  What a PITA.

*Speaking of AFN commercials, why is James Stavridis all over my TV lately?  If you don't know who he is (and you probably don't), he's NATO's Supreme Allied Commander in Europe (seriously cool title).  He and his wife have a series of commercials about staying healthy and while I don't really mind the commercials, they play them all.the.bloody.time.over.and.over.  It's getting to be a bit much.

*I love The Big Bang Theory!  The show, not the scientific theory, though I'm down with that too.  Bazinga!

*My awesome friend, Cheesehead, who is moving back to the States in a few weeks and making me very sad, came over last week and brought me my birthday present (because of Han Solo's early arrival, we haven't seen each other since before my birthday).  Know what it was?  Season 2 of October Road WITH the 15 minute ending they shot to wrap up the show after it got cancelled.  How awesome is she?  I loved that show, but it fell victim to the writer's strike a few years ago.  She remembered that I liked the show and lamented its demise and the fact that I never got to see the ending.  She's so awesome.

*I'm still bitter over the writer's strike.  Some really good shows got cancelled or were totally messed up due to that whole thing.  What shows?  Aside from October Road (which I fully admit was not that great of a show, but I liked it), Journeyman, starring the delicious Kevin McKidd.  I really, really, really liked that show, damn it.  I can't believe it didn't get picked back up.  Also, there was the whole debacle on Bones with Zack being Gormogon's apprentice, that I still refuse to accept.  James Bond backs me on this.

*That's right, we're TV junkies.

*I need wine.

*My beloved Johnny's birthday is coming up.  I'm trying to decide how we'll celebrate.  Again, not delusional.

*There's a guy around here who looks like a very manly sort of man, but rides a hot pink Vespa.  I {heart} him for that.

*Oh, there's also a weird guy (Indy calls him a hippy) with dreds and a multicolored backpack who rides a bike with crows (LIVE CROWS!).  One crow sits on his shoulder and the other on his arm, which he frequently holds out to the side and the crow will spread its wings like it's flying.  We've tried to get photos, but so far, we haven't gotten any good ones.  Here are 2 I snapped the day we brought Han Solo home though:

The things at the bottom of the photo are my windshield stickers, but you can see the birds.

Okay, that's all I've got.  I'm linking up with the awesome Stacy again, since Keely is still on hiatus because apparently her new job is way more important that hosting RTT.  Lame.  Click the button at the top to see all the other randoms.

Awesome random! Johnny is a hottie, but my only true love is and always will be Sully. *swoon*

Now that I have Netflix I so have to catch up on Bones. I haven't seen it since the first season.

That so sucks that your friend is moving. My besty lives 45 minutes from me and that seems like the other end of the earth.

Happy Tuesday!

Awesome randoms!!

I don't think you're delusional. I celebrate Jason Statham's birthday. ...

Stacy Uncorked said...

I laughed so hard at your first paragraph I actually snorted. Yeah, I'm one classy girl. ;) But man - those names you and James Bond picked out for race horses are hysterical!! Love them! :)

Even I know you get first dibbs on Johnny...but don't let your guard down, or he'll be mine! ;)

Loud commercials are annoying - that's why I DVR everything just so I can fast forward through the annoyance. I think it's something about people getting up and going into the other room when commercials are on...that way they don't 'miss out'... >;o)~

I LOVE the Big Bang Theory, too! Bazinga! :)

I'm jealous of your birthday present - I loved October Road, too. How cool is your friend?

I'm still bitter over the writer's strike, too - I was part of the campaign to Save Journeyman - I even got a nice hand written thank you note from the creator, Kevin Falls, when I sent him (and all the exec's) a Save Journeyman Gift Basket. And I'm totally with you on Bones's Zack - he needs to come back, the others that have tried to fill his shoes are not doing him justice.

WooHoo! Another TV junkie - and wine lover. No wonder I ♥ you so much! :)

Thanks for hanging in there with me and rockin' the random rebellion!! :)

Oh, I was SO with you on the writers' strike. That ticked me off. No LOST for ages. It messed up a bunch of shows...and left me with nothing to do in the evening. I resorted to reading books. ;)

Toni said...

I am also a TV junkie. :)

Big Bang - Love it! Bones - Love it! Etc, etc.

"Dead Last" is an Awesome name for a race horse!!

Happy Tuesday!

The crow thing is crazy! I've never heard of anything like that before. How on earth--and WHY on earth--would you train them to sit on you while you're riding a bike? Bizarre.

I just discovered "Big Bang Theory" recently and it cracks me up. I've been watching the earlier seasons on DVD to get caught up.

LOL Love the horse names!! Horse racing always reminds me of the show "Everybody loves Raymond" when the guys went to horse races instead of therapy and they bet on Maries mouth! haha I love that show!!

Ok I have to say that I totally belive Zach was brainwashed and had no idea what he was doing and I think he should come back to the show because all the other guys drive me nuts! Just my opinion though!!
