The snow is falling down.... [Feb. 4th, 2014|02:48 pm]

You know, the one advantage to my computer *still* being buggered, is that I'm sitting here in the living room with the laptop, and can turn my head a bit and watch the snow falling outside. That is, I think, one of my favorite parts about snow...just watching those white fluffy blobs fall down to the ground. I'm tempted to get up and open the blinds a little bit more, just to have a bit of an area to watch

Of course snow can also be evil, especially when there was still patches of ice here and there. Managed to literally end up sprawled on my back this morning putting doggy unmentionables in the dumpster. Ebony, of course, seemed to think this was a new kind of game. Was quite thankful for the patch of grass that's next to the dumpster, otherwise I'd probably *still* be trying to get up. [an exaggeration...downstairs neighbors would have helped me up, I think...]. Should have been more careful though, when Ebony made a distinctly Bambie-like move when she went up to sniff the dumpster like she usually wants to [and keeping her from licking whatever she finds on the ground by that thing....oy vey. Silly Lab.]

As pretty as it is though, I'm *not* looking forward to tomorrow morning. Unless work calls up later today and says "nope, we're gonna stay closed tomorrow" or something, I get to go in first thing in the morning. Which, whether I do it tonight [the more sensible option] or morning [not so great option] I'm going to be shoveling out the car in the dark. With a big metal mixing bowl [again, just like last year!!], because guess who FORGOT to get a shovel. And I was even in Wal-Mart at 7am this morning. **sighs**

Fun times. XD

And so, the hubby discovered that Disney, instead of giving us the REST of 'Gargoyles' on DVD, decided....to put it all up on YouTube. First season's playlist is here, couldn't figure out where there might be one for season two, but the episodes are listed as YouTube does to the side [I checked by watching the opening of the last ep of season one], so they are there. And hey, the quality at least looks good from the opening that I watched. And since it's YouTube, it's free, so hey, at least I can watch the rest of the series again SOMEHOW. So all is good.

**grumbles** and the brother might have pointed us to YET ANOTHER good series [he pointed us to 'Fringe'!], and it's 'Supernatural' of all things. A show that didn't hit my radar for some reason at first, and with the BUTTON of 'Supernatural' slashfic between the two brothers [incest being a MAJOR SQUICK of mine] I've seen I've been like "eww, no." But now that the hubby's watching it [and he sees nearly as many "slashy moments" as I do, and he doesn't see it yet] I'll probably break down and watch it myself. Netflix for the win!!

What do you mean, the rest? I bought season two part two last year. Disney movie club has it. :)

If you're referring to season three... That is abomination and I do not acknowledge its existence. *sniffs*

I'm not a member either, but a friend of mine is. It was about $22 for her to get it for me. I can ask her to get another set if you like. Whatever you do, don't pay the asstastic prices people are asking on Amazon.

I would adore you for forever and always! [okay, not that I don't already...more adoring! XD]

Just be sure to let me know the whens, wheres and hows so I can get $$$ to you. ^_^

And no, even if I'd have noticed them [and chances are good that if I had I'd have probably thought they were bootleg from somewhere if I had], I wouldn't have paid outrageous prices for it anyway. There's a REALLY BIG reason that I don't get my Monster High dolls from Amazon. xD

Snow is SO beautiful. There is some good non-Wincest SPN fic out there. I've not watched the whole show (and won't), but the funny eps are a DELIGHT. Miss you.

Snow is awesome and pretty [and it looks like we're getting a little more of it. XD]!! Except for driving in it. If we had the melting grids that a series by Julian May had [which kept the sidewalks and streets free of ice and snow] that would be the *best*. But, gotta deal with what we've got. LOL

So far I've only been "meh!" about 'Supernatural', but I'm only two episodes in, so I'll give it some more time. I have already noticed though, that they take quite a bit of their camerawork from the same school that movie horror movies do. Same with the writing, really. Lots of "suddenstartle". Though nothing's been overly gory....yet....

**hugs**

SPN is most enjoyable as a series that is a weekly B-movie about silly monsters and urban legends. It's a road trip buddy series with monsters and silly stuff...and increasingly more goofiness and increasingly more gore and such. You just can't take it too seriously. :-)

Yay!! Can get you the monies by next Friday. [silly bills. :P] Then of course I'll have to nag the hubby, as our Paypal account is under his name and stuff. XD

Is that with shipping, or without, and how much will shipping be if it's not?
