withdrawal pains

I have been without home internet for over a week, and it won’t be hooked up again until Thursday – add to that the I was out of town for a week and you have one geek girl who is very very behind on her shows. A coworker downloaded 2 episodes of Heroes for me but I am 2 weeks or more behind on these:

Stargate Atlantis
Pushing Daisies
The Office
Ugly Betty
Bionic Woman
How I Met Your Mother
30 Rock

Wow, for someone with no cable I watch a ton of tv, and my two faves (Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica) aren’t even showing new episodes right now. I also want to start watching Samantha Who because one of the writers is a blogger who I have been reading for years, so I will be catching up on it as soon as I get all wired up again. Maybe I need to re-evaluate how I am spending my time, even minus commercials that adds up to over 6 hours.

The following are shows that I started watching but quickly grew bored or disgusted with:
Bionic Woman
(but I’m still watching in case it magically turns watchable)
Big Bang Theory
Desperate Housewives
(I wanted to watch it for Nathan’s sake but it’s so awful I just can’t)
Californication (as above, I wanted to watch this to see David, and it has it’s good moments, but mostly it gives me a headache)

28 days later

Instead of watching tv shows this last week or so I have made a pineapple cake and a yummy stew, walked the dog in the fall air, attempted to catch up on my rss feeds (thanks Google Gears), read a few books, and watched a couple of movies. Last night’s movie was 28 Days Later – I admit that I haven’t seen most of Christopher Eccleston’s work, but so far everything I catch him in that is not Doctor Who is creepy, creepy, creepy. What’s up with that?

    It’s his ears. They make him ideal for creepy things.

    That could very well be. My working theory so far has had to do with the odd shape of his head, but the ears are also very interesting.
