|06:06 pm - Measuring out the minutes...|
...Waiting for the refurbished laptop purchase (to replace the Dead One) to have the hard drive contents transferred, etc etc. before I can pick it up. Will this be tonight? Oh, who's to say.
Anyhoo, we carry on.
A thing: I watched the Sleepy Hollow pilot/premiere last night. The premise is -- and I say this as a fan of Tom Stoppard and Steven Moffat -- very much overstuffed with backstory, antagonists, conspiracies through the ages, horror-notes, and whatnot. Nevertheless, the female lead is very strong and the male lead, aka Ichabod Crane, is delicious, so I'll give it another week.
(But I have to say that it's not visually interesting, which is annoying me.)
And now I go off to do more work, because that is what I do. The Dangerous Dog and I send our very best compliments in your direction, and we wish you a delightful middle of your week.

I've heard lots of good things about Sleepy Hollow. Must check it out On Demand!
It's genre done mostly well -- the acting and some of the dialogue are selling it for me. :)
I dealt with horrible, annoying family dynamics, does that count????
Oh dear oh dear, it counts and I hope your week improves immeasurably. Good thoughts!
If I can just make it to Thursday when we get on a plane for a tiny vacation, things will be much better.
:: takes deep breath::
Offers you and me both a stiff drink.
I am chanting good thoughts for your vacation as we speak!
[hugs and a drink]
Oh, all the hugs -- and good wishes for the laptop and the remainder of the week.
H-P! All the hugs, all the good thoughts to you!

I've heard of the new Sleepy Hollow series, but have no idea when or where it's on. Perhaps it will show up on Netflix at some point.
According to the internet it's on Fox (US) and Global? Anyway, it's silly but worth a try. :)
Happy Wednesday, T!

My compliments to Master Dangerous, and a good middle of the week to you.
Master Dangerous would thank you, but he's napping. So I thank you for both of us.
Hugs and a good day!
I watched it and am very iffy about it- way too much going on, and none of the characters caught me. But for some reason I'm planning on watching it again next week.
I hope work and the Dangerous Dog are both behaving themselves. And that your new computer is home.
Perhaps you're thinking about watching it again because it's laced with crack! :) (Or maybe it's a NY State yearning?)
I'll be watching it again because I like the leads, but that might not be enough in the long haul.
And no computer, no hard drive transfer. We carry on.
