Night Flares

I don't really have a thousand words worth reporting...

Speaking with a friend on Tuesday & my honest answer to "What's been happening?" was "Not much - work, eat, sleep..." Not necessarily in equal proportions, of course... I'm not working much

But seriously - I AM working quite a bit, though not as many hours as L-SP. Trying to eat less... even trying to sleep less, but the encroaching Winter & darkness at 6.30am don't encourage early rises. Thank goodness for my Butcherbirds alarm clock

Speaking of which... I can hear them calling now

Fascinating image!

Are you guys watching the TV adaptation of American Gods?

As much as I prefer daylight to dark, on those June evenings when I'm trying to get to bed early it's like "Aw cmon, get dark enough so I can sleep already!"

We watched the first episode only. Just a bit too intense for us. I don't need a pounding heartbeat right before bed.

I still think of Ian McShane as the lovable divvie in Lovejoy.

Speaking of Gillian, did you see the X-Files reboot? That was kinda fun.

What, are you a Lovejoy fan??

My dad is the only other USAian I've found who watched it. Back in the early 1990s it was on one of the cable channels, and the last season was shown current (was that 1993?).

I shed tears at the end; I had no idea it was the finale until partway through that last episode. And that ending... "The past is a foreign country, and Lovejoy doesn't live there anymore."

Years later I bought the entire show on DVDs, which turned out to be a crappy bootleg set and barely watchable. I'd love to buy the legitimate collection on disc and watch it in sequence.

I tried the books *after* watching the TV series, and liked them but not as much as the show.

Google shows the six seasons available individually, or all six on 21 discs in a one-box collection. At least, here in Region 1.
