Back by Popular Demand: Random Facebook Posts, December Week 1

8 Dec

Stop and Shop Old Fashioned Oats are too old-fashioned. They use the recipe from before they invented taste.

3am, and I’m very tired, but unable to sleep. My nightly night meds are apparently doing battle with that coffee I had this evening. I have to learn to commit to either sleeping at night or staying up at night, and not telling my body to do both.

I can’t believe it. A Christmas special that references the birth of Christ and the gifts he was brought as why Santa brings children presents.

When I was in the Army, I had a soldier who believed that he had prophetic visions of the coming apocalypse, and that during those days he would be a warrior fighting against the forces of evil. I don’t know where he is now or what he is doing, but I bet he’s very excited and anxiously awaiting December 21 like a kid waiting for Christmas.

Feeling tired and lazy today. Not really depressed. Just drained. Think it’s going to be a TV and internet afternoon and evening. Guess I’ve been exerting too much energy recently. Or I’m just tired and lazy.

So far this year my son has maintained an “A” average in all of his classes in his first year of middle school. I’m so proud of him, and give kudos to his mom for making sure my son is studious.

Not sure if I’ve mentioned it, but I’ve lost 30 pounds since August.

Who says cats can’t learn English? If I say “feed kitty”, Fudge jumps up and runs to his food dish from anywhere in the apartment every single time.

It’s funny how some nights I need a full 14 hours sleep and others I’m wide awake after a solid three hours.

Today I set out to do nothing but chill out and relax. So instead I was extremely productive and got a lot done. Kind of the opposite of a normal day.

Note to self: When fridge is empty, I can keep it at a lower setting. I froze my leftovers.

I’m always so full of excitement in the fall as my favorite TV shows return with new episodes and new TV shows are introduced.

 

Of course, Doctor Who is already back, but since I don’t have BBC America, I’ll have to wait until the season is over to catch up on Netflix.

 

But Community will be coming back soon, so at least I can catch up on Inspector Space-Time.

 

Also looking forward to the return of Modern Family, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, the Office and Once Upon a Time.

 

And I’m interested in the new series Elementary.  I know, it seems like we’re being over saturated with different takes on the Great Detective, but I really enjoyed those three episodes of Sherlock, as well the Downey film.  (Haven’t seen his second one yet though.)

 

Surprisingly, I’m not so thrilled about Arrow, which may shock some folks.  I expect it to fizzle after a season.  But who knows.  It seems they are going to stray far enough away from the comics and try to keep it more like the other CW teen drama shows.
