Okay... so I've been taking time off from blogging again...
It's this dream-come-true-moving-to-a-farm thing which is making me nuts. I mean, this is something I've waited for, oh, around 30 years and now with less than two weeks to go, well, I'm bonkers. Just plain bonkers. We both are.
So Tom and I have just been killing time mostly, be that good or bad (probably bad). We've watched scandalous amounts of tv, including season finales of the crime shows we don't even watch anymore. And last Saturday we went and saw Iron Man, then Horton Hears A Who (talk about shifting gears!). We enjoyed both.
Our official moving date is June 12th, though our closing date is May 30th. It's not the moving of all our junk into the house I'm anxious about. I can wait for that. No, I just want the house to be ours. I want the keys. I want to actually get out of our car when we go there, instead of just parking in front and staring at all the gorgeous land behind the house and at the house, itself.
Patience, patience. I know.
So in the meantime, again, I'm here. But my head is currently too stuffed with dreams and plans and anticipation to be much good to anyone in Blogland. So please be patient with me... Someday this won't be all so incredibly overwhelming. Someday I'll be able to put all this into words.
P.S. Major, major NCIS spoiler below!
Okay, so I (who has preached against dread) was dreading the season finale of NCIS for weeks. I told Tom that the only person who I could stand to see killed off the show would be Jenny, the director. She wasn't a major player (in my mind) and was usually rather cranky. And so ok......they killed her off. The writers even suddenly gave her some mysterious degenerative disease to ease the blow for us. (hmmm...) I can handle that.
So by the end of the show I'm breathing all these huge sighs of relief when --wham! The three best, most endearing (imo) people of the NCIS team are all reassigned and Gibbs was given a whole new, different crew. Oh. My. Goodness. I did not see that coming (did anyone??). I spouted to Tom, "So help me.... If they do get rid of those three people, I won't be watching this show next season!" Triple argh! I went to bed consoling myself with, "Repeat after me....It's just a tv show, Debra. It's just a tv show."
But ok..... I've calmed down this morning. I went over to the message board on the NCIS page at IMBD and was consoled by many who reassured us wild-eyed-panicky folks that--most likely--the original crew will return within a few weeks of the new season, and they cited a few other crime shows which have used similar scare tactics to keep all of us (gullible people with no life) watching week after week.
Those comforters over at IMDB had better be right! Or so help me...! :)
