Long time, no see  
I know, I suck. I think about posting, bet never get around to it. What's new with you? I still read my f'list, and even attempt to comment occasionally.

Let's see.... haven't seen any movies lately, so that's out. TV? Anyone else looking at the Amazon pilots? We've watched a bunch, and some are quite good. We really liked Man In a High Castle -- excellent! Watched the first ep ob Bosche last night, and I think I'll watch more, but then, I've always had a fondness for Titus Welliver.

Survived the Disneyland Measles Outbreak 2014. Spent 21 days hoping I wasn't one of 3% who had vaccine failure. I wasn't!

Vala, our puppy, is very large now, and is going to be way more Border Collie than Black Lab.

Just downloaded the new Mavericks album, Mono. Can't wait to listen to it.

Still in writers block land.

Bought a bunch of seeds from Seed Savers Exchange and have been reading books on companion gardening. It's a project! Turning my yard into a couple raised beds as I've given up on grass until I can afford decent sod.

The apricot trees are in bloom. Smells wonderful outside.

Till later....

You do not!
...suck, that is. Good to hear from you, especially that you didn't catch the wrong kind of germs.

The Man in the High Castle is one of my favorite books; I'm interested to see how the show looks.

I'm so glad to hear from you. You know, you and April can email even if you don't feel up to posting. I miss ya'll.

I'm enjoying so many shows this season. Forever could be a ripoff of Highlander, but the scripts and actors are so good that they get a pass. I love it.

EHarmony is sending me every toad frog they can find in a 5 state radius. At least I only had the one who tied up my time with hundreds of emails only to finally get to the point that he wanted someone to have sex in front of his friends.

It's amazing how busy you can be when you're not even trying. And Methos is improving. Back to the vet tomorrow.

So glad the germs passed you by. And gardening -- doesn't sound like fun from my end, but since you really enjoy it .... And apricot trees.

I've never really gardened before, just picked and watered what my brother has planted. But I wanted to give it a shot myself, and try starting from scratch with heritage seeds using companion gardening. When I cook, I love having fresh homegrown produce. Tastes so much better. And if I can get enough tomatoes, I'm hoping to be able to put up tomato sauce.

We have five apricots, two pear, two peach, one plum, and a baby nectarine that won't be ready for fruit for a few years. Also several pomegranates and an almond tree.

Miss you too!

Never seen it :)

I also love what they're doing with Burn Gorman's character.

I'm a couple of episodes behind, but yes, it's definitely an interesting turn with the character

I'm still glad to see you whenever you can post even if it's just to announce uploading. You're one of my longest LJ friends and that's getting rarer.

Okay, I don't know if it's online anywhere but there is a fight scene in the Kingsman with Jack Davenport where I had a huge dopey grin the entire time. The film immediately ruined it for me, but oh...that fight scene...it was squee worthy and made me wish we could have more Norrington. They're filming the fifth one currently... *sigh*

I'm excited about new Agents of SHIELD on Tuesday!

I really need and want to write more, but I'm so behind on work....
