Being Human, Repo the Gentic Yarn, and many other things
So my previous post was a little well… for lack of a better word… emo.
But hey, I’m a writer… it tends to be what we do at times.
After writing my blog, I went and scrubbed 2/3rds of my bathroom. This makes me happy.
I had a dust bunny, that honestly I thought he was the Prince of the Dust Bunnies, and was going to start plotting war against me.
For those who don’t know, this wood burning is from Catharsis Comic, which for the most part is on permanent hiatus, but it is still fun to go back and read through.
I kid you not about the dust bunnies in my bathroom. Colorado Springs is a dust bowl, and to be honest the dust drives me absolutely bonkers. By tomorrow my counter will once again have a coating of dust on it, but at the very least it will be a while before the grandeur of the Dust Bunny Prince decides to show his bunny self again.
So, I’ve been catching up on a lot of telly… but I’m not going to go into most of the things, cause I can’t remember most of them right now. This proves once again I need to take the time to blog more often to do my reviews.
But here is one that I am sooo ready to pimp out cause it’s like AWESOME.
Once again, a BBC production.
Blogger hides most of my photos no matter what I do to it in the upload, so to see Annie the Ghost, just click on the image and it will get larger. I’m annoyed at blogger for this. -.-
A Ghost, a Vampire and a Werewolf trying to live a “normal” life in Bristol.
What can I say, other than Freaking Awesome. The writing was witty, and refreshing, and well… human!
There were nice twists at appropriate places, and the episode 5 and 6 (meaning, second to last and last) had me literally going “Ohmigawd!” and squeeing and being quite creeped out at times.
I like their take on the Vampires, which it is amusing as it mimics a few of the “rules” my own vampires in “A Hard Day’s Bite” had. Ranging from sunlight to religion and the symbols of power. I liked it!
I’m never fond of the “Wolfman” style of werewolves, but I think that they pulled it off very well.
The Ghost, also had some great rules.
Mostly I liked how the stories intertwined, flowed and how you actually connected with each character. I actually cared about the characters which recently I haven’t been doing so much in regards to telly.
Oh, and it was great seeing in the first 2 episodes not 1, but 3 Doctor Who people.
Annie, played by Lenora Crichlow was in Season 3 of Doctor Who in “Gridlock”
George, played by Russell Tovey was in Season 4 Christmas Special: Voyage of the Damned (and actually it looks like he’ll be reprising his role of Midshipman Alonso Frame for at least 2 more episodes of Who, so.. WOOT!)
A character who’s name I cannot recall, was played by the actor who played Shakespeare in season 3 episode “Shakespeare Code”
I very much am looking forward to Series 2 of Being Human, I hope that it lasts for a good long while as it is a very good show. If you haven’t gone out and seen it yet.. Go do it now!
I’m actually getting inspired for some colorways from this show.
Sigh, I wish I had time and money enough to dye up all the yarn I want to dye right now!
Speaking of yarn…
I am currently knitting up a pair of socks called “Legal Assassin” which is a pattern completely designed by me! Don’t have photos at the moment since I’m still in the “working out the kinks” phase.
This sock pattern is to match the yarn “Nathan Wallace / Repo Man”
I’m quite proud of this yarn, it was my first time working with wool.
And it will be for sale. I’ve got only 1 skein left for sale at this time.
Which reminds me, I’ve been officially made into a Yarnie on Ravelry. Woot. I’m official.
What am I currently reading?
Deadly Decisions by Kathy Reichs
I can already say that I’m going to be pretty opinionated when I finish this book. Not necessarily about the story, but more about the over all books in general. I will be spoiling a bit for those who have not read, so when I do post that post.. don’t read if you don’t want a bit of a spoiler. Don’t worry, I’ll give warning.
I guess I’m done yammering for now.
