More TV, because TV

After one episode (really less than one episode) of Atlantis on BBCA, I decided I didn't need to watch more. I deleted the 3 eps I had and the season pass. If someone convinces me that watching white guys run away from animals/creatures 3 times in one episode is something I should be doing, I'll track down the original uncut 6 minutes longer BBC version.

I have not managed to catch Almost Human, because it's opposite something... now have 1 random episode I can't watch.

I managed to miss an episode of Dracula, so I have to track that down before watching the last one.

Meant to watch the Carrie Underwood Sound of Music, because, but forgot. Oh well.

Have not watched any Christmas specials. Will make up for that later.

Finished season 6 of Stargate SG-1. I'm on the downward slope! I've watched more episodes than I have episodes left to watch.

Anticipating - Christmas Doctor Who, Christmas teaser for Sherlock, New Year's Sherlock (you think I'm waiting for PBS? Ha ha ha!)

Christmas Books

Been thinking about posting here about wanting to read Christmas books and asking y'all for suggestions. But work is going to be crappy this month. And it's December. Hectic and stressful and sick people everywhere and blah.

But, hey, if you have any suggestions for Christmas books I should read, let me know. I'm thinking of reading The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, because it's my favorite. And perhaps A Christmas Story. You know, with the Red Rider BB Gun. Never read that one.

And if you are looking for suggestions, I recommend Dickens' A Christmas Carol. It's an easier read than what you had to read in school, I promise. And Connie Willis's Christmas story collection.

Yea, that's right, I just dropped the 's on the possessive of Dickens and kept it for Willis. Deal.

I also liked The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming by Lemony Snicket. For those whose holiday season is a little more blue than red and green.

My First Christmas Post

The Christmas specials have started on TV. I thought it was just Fox Family, but I see Disney's also gotten in on the act. So in that spirit, here's a list.

My favorite reindeer: The Rankin/Bass stop-motion Rudolph
My favorite Santa Claus: Whoopi Goldberg
My favorite elf: Bernard
My favorite other character: Jack Frost (the Rankin/Bass one again probably)
My favorite Mrs. Claus: Afraid I don't have one.
