I'm not a huge fan of episodic television. Most shows are great for a season or two then...just... fizzle. Or maybe I just don't have the attention span. What ever.
Survivor and The Amazing Race flashed through my head, just for the challenge aspect of it. But then that's a month of hard work so.... NO
Up until recently, I would have chosen Game of Thrones. Cool story, faithful to the books at least for season one. Season two, what happened? Things are so off book now, makes me angry. In three short episodes. And the author of the books is the executive producer. Scratch that.
Mad Men. Lots of drinking, smoking and fornicating. I could do that. Nah, never really got into the series.
The Killing. Very tempting. Great story, a crime solving whodunit. Michelle Forbes who has been on some of the coolest shows from TNG to True Blood. Awesome to meet her. Umm, a whole month. I'm terrible at solving mysteries. Those damn Hardy Boys didn't teach me a thing.
That of course leads to True Blood. Hangin' out with Sookie and Bill. Cool, but I'm not really built like Eric or Alcide so.... Maybe if I shed a few pounds, and hit the gym, and miraculously become 20 years younger.
The Walking Dead. Post apocalyptic zombie creating virus world. I'd be a natural, see.
Then I got thinking of comedy series, I have a feeling they'd get old fast. The billion and one crime shows, nah. Feel good wholesome family shows, yawn.
Too bad Sliders wasn't on anymore, or Stargate. Who wouldn't like to tool around the universe or through alternate dimensions. Then it hit me. Why didn't I think of it earlier? And the new season is starting soon. I love this show.
That's right folks, Doctor Who. How could you resist the invitation to travel through all of time and space in a blue police box with the last surviving Time Lord? A whole lot of awesome. And not all of the Doctor's companions end up dead. This is my final answer, where I will spend my month. Just try and pry me out of the TARDIS. I dare you.
Stop by Rory's and see where else we'd like to spend some quality time.
And now for episode two of this post. I got tagged, twice, by family. Rory and my cousin Carly so... I'm not going to play by the rules but I will answer the questions.
Here are my questions for those I have tagged:1. Oreo cookies: are you a milk dipper or pull them apart and lick the creme inside?
Neither, I hate Oreos. I'm sure I was the only kid who wouldn't eat Oreo's or PB&J. I loathe peanut butter unless it's in a cookie, with honey or in a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
2. beach or pool?
Either/both as long as the neither are too crowded. Crowded with family is fine.
3. What's your freak talent?
Uh this is a PG blog, I'm not talking about "freak " talents. What happens in my bedroom is no ones business but my own. LOL
4. What's in your bag?
A book, toothpaste and tooth brush, another bag, two actually. One plastic and another re usable one for grocery shopping. In my knapsack.
5. You are a closet _______ fan?
Kelly Clarkson/Paula Deen
6. Who is the celebrity you would most like to meet and why?
Annie Lennox, the epitome of cool
7. Can you put your mascara on with your mouth closed? (boys, if you are here...pick a substitute)
No I can not shave with my mouth closed
8. Last thing you bought.
Books, cigarettes, beer and pearl dust-don't ask. I'll tell you on Friday
9. The best part of waking up is _____?
Hitting the snooze button and rolling over
10. You have one phone call - who ya gonna call?
I actually don't know, depending on why, probably my parents.
11. What is your favourite thing about the opposite sex?
Giggling. Silly I know. Guys guffaw, we snicker but talking late night with my Mom or any of my girlfriends can reduce me to giggles. Little kid, uncontrollable giggles.
Because we're all rebels in this family, Carly choose to ask direct questions for each of the people she tagged. Here's mine
The Ossington Kitchen: How did you come up with the name for your blog?
Easy. The original idea/purpose for the blog was to share family recipes and pictures. Life in our collective kitchens. I live on Ossington Avenue My blog is my kitchen. The original header was going to be the view from my kitchen window but it kinda sucks and I'd have to clean the window so...
I have chosen not to tag anyone else. I know, I'm a big spoil sport, but I couldn't think of questions for eleven people right now. It will come to me a couple of weeks from now of course but by then it's kinda too late.
Don't forget to drop by tomorrow for the first installment of the epic trilogy that is Movita's Birthday Cake.
