I’ve just put a deposit down on new digs to rent. It’s closer to my parents’ than our current place, right next to a park and to the Botanic Gardens, and has a small back yard for Young Indiana to play in. It’s a little farther away from the main road where Ted catches his bus, but we’re planning to get a car as soon as we can, so that won’t be too much of a bother. We take possession Friday, so I’ll take and post pictures then!

God, that’s a relief.

Of these 101 best-written TV show series, I have seen enough episodes of M*A*S*H, Cheers, The X-Files, The Cosby Show, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica (2005), Downton Abbey, Law & Order, Moonlighting, The Golden Girls, House, ST: TNG, and Family Ties to consider myself to have watched them, although with Downton Abbey and House I’ve seen only the first seasons each.

Out of the remaining 88 shows, there are about five I’d like to watch. I’m not sure what this says about me or tv… :)

Junowrimo wordcount (did you know there’s an actual official Junowrimo? I didn’t.):

5000 / 50000 (10.00%)

On one hand, 10%! OTOH, by the end of tomorrow I’m supposed to be at 20%, which seems like an awfully long way from where I am…

Someone asked: I got the wordcount meter here. :)

This is a magnificent 19th century quote about womens’ rights by abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison. And yes, I know, this is a terribly disjointed post. Things make a post, what can I say?

Of these 101 best-written TV show series...

Now I want to make one of those meme things where you bold and italicize which ones you watched and stuff. I just skimmed the top 10 and was like 'I've watched episodes of all of those'... :)

There is another quote from his writing which is seen more often, and which I love.

"I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! No! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell the mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which it has fallen; – but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest – I will not equivocate – I will not excuse – I will not retreat a single inch – AND I WILL BE HEARD."

A great man.

Not doing so well on Junowrimo here. Gonna make up for lost time this weekend. What day of the week is it again?

Congrats on finding the new place! I hope you are very happy there.

That Garrison quote is amazing. Thanks for sharing it.

Oh and I agree with Justified being on that list, but I would move it way, way up toward the top. Especially the most recent season. I can't remember if the first season was really that excellent or if was just Timothy Olyphant syndrome, but it has gotten really good. Every line of dialogue priceless. (or it's just Timothy Olyphant, but I'm pretty sure that's not the case...)

Yay on the new place - great quote by Lloyd and I had a quick scan of the 101 shows but not enough to count how many - though there were some of my favourite shows on that list.

I opened this window to comment yesterday I guess and never did. Ooops :-)
