Catching up.

I’ve definitely been letting the blogging slide.  Sorry.

My goal was to have all my archived posts moved over to my new blog by the end of June.  Yeah, by the end of June, I was about halfway done…and I’m not much further halfway through July, either.  Grrrr.

But in good news, one of the reasons I’ve been slacking on the blog is that my Etsy venture is going well.  The “Doctor Who” dinosaurs and “Firefly” crew ribbon tag blankets are both sold out; I’ve ordered the fabric for more and they’re on their way!  I’m still waiting for my local Joann Fabrics store to restock their ribbon so I can start on the “Harry Potter” blankets–I’ve been three times in the past three weeks, and all they have are all the wrong combinations of satin and grosgrain in the colors and sizes I need.  Gah.  I do have a couple “Godric” Gryffindor dinos up, though!  (I hope to have more houses up soonishly, if Gryffindor sells well!)

I’ve also been catching up on season 7 of “Doctor Who”, which is finally up on Netflix!  Finished the season the other night, but I have yet to watch “The Day of the Doctor”.  Would someone like to explain to me why Netflix not only makes us wait a virtual eternity for a season, but then lets us down by not including the most important episode?  Grrrrrr!!

And now I’m off to sign up for Pottermore so I can finally read J.K. Rowling’s most recent short-story addition to the world of witchcraft and wizardry.  I’m so behind, guys! 😛


The Walking Dead: Look at the flowers.

I spent the first fifty minutes of this week’s The Walking Dead episode complaining to my husband about how the dialogue in this episode all felt forced and cliché, and the drama manufactured, and how this season’s writing just overall sucks…..and then–BAM, the episode got good.

So, if you got bored and turned off your TV early this week, watch the end online.  That was (by far) the most intriguing ten minutes of the season.  (Which is still the worst season of the show, sadly.  As much as I loved the first three seasons, and the concept overall, this season has been disappointing in so many ways.)

It’s been nice having TV this year–we normally don’t; we got a good deal for a year when we upgraded our internet upon moving.  But the upside of The Walking Dead (the only show I watch live) sliding downhill is that at least it won’t be as hard giving it up again.  Kind of like how Matt Smith being the Doctor has made waiting for Netflix to put up season seven soooo much easier than if I’d discovered and binged on Doctor Who in the middle of David Tennant’s reign and then had to wait….
