TV: Leverage … familiar and new heist fun

Caught the first episode of the new TNT series Leverage this week. Have to admit that I’m predisposed to liking it already, as I’m a fan of series co-creator John Rogers, and have followed his blog for several years now. So I’ve been following the making of Leverage for sometime, and been waiting for its ...

Real quiet one today

Barely at a computer for most of the day… an odd and quiet one which involved me not going to work by arrangement, but getting several other things done instead. Very tight-lipped, I know 🙂 Got to drop the kids off at kindie and pick them up, which is always good. Will especially is really ...

The clean man

I seemed to spend most of today cleaning the house. I don’t really mind that at all … as long as it isn’t too repetitive, it’s a nice feeling, to get your “mansion” clean and liveable. The kid’s room got a final makeover and cleanup, though there’s short odds on that lasting long. The loungeroom ...

The end of The Shield 1

Just watched the last episode of The Shield… spoilers follow: Damn… pretty hardcore, yet real. A lot of big moments, but it stayed in the right realm of reality for the show. Vic  sort of does get away with it, and yet his life is destroyed. His family hates him and is gone, his team ...

Wonderful day

Really great day at home today. Was feeling a bit ill from last night, so was able to get up fairly late (9am, ha!), quiet morning, getting back into it. Actually got a good amount of writing done today, which is a change for the weekend, but by the end of the day, probably not ...

Writing and Daily Show marathons

Late now… did manage to watch a Daily Show marathon including the election night special. Magnificent stuff! Have found however that writing on the weekend, at home, seems far less easy, even though I should be loaded with free time for it. But I guess I’m loaded with more distractions too. Hmmm… will have to  ...

Shopping fever

It’s amazing how you can go shopping, think you won’t spend that much, but then spend lots, but then realise that it was all necessary anyway. We bought a bunch of new house things. It’s always how it goes — when you move there’s always a whole list of things you need that you either ...

New Underbelly series casting reports

In a return to my favourite “audience drawing” topic, the Nine Network is moving ahead with a new Underbelly series, to be shot imminently and aired early next year. Despite what early reports implied, instead of a half-arsed prequel, they are doing the more logical and going back to the crime wars of the late ...

Seems like it will never end…

Yes, still moving, a little. Went to work in the day, and had a fairly terrible time of it. Might write about that a little more, but while there’s so many problems there, I need an attitude alteration as well (for my own sake–the job be damned.) But I spent the evening doing some moving, ...
