20111112, Marilee


It was after midnight when I finished here -- all that napping pushed me back -- and I hadn't eaten yet for the day. I started the Near East couscous and also the new Haven show on SyFy. I finished eating the couscous before the show ended so I just sat and watched. I don't do that often. I was asleep at 5:30am this morning, but had a strange dream where I needed a new arm and of the choices, one was whapping me. I woke myself up and it was Junie's tail whapping me. I held it a few times and then she got off the bed. I woke up at 12:50pm, 10 minutes before the alarm was going to go off, and I got up then.

I picked up a book at the library and then went to get groceries. I have a lot of aches from there and I didn't even get to the second half of the store. I'm going to have to have Peapod come soon. I picked up two days of mail coming in, and the box my SFBC book (Charlie's The Fuller Memorandum) was in had what looked like goopy yellow-orange stuff on the front. I carefully touched it and it was hard. That's when I realized the label/envelope was partly off the front of the box. The yellow-orange stuff was glue that had melted, the label/envelope slid, and then the glue hardened. That's when you know it's been hot out.

I have big pain in my left back, probably from the kitty litter, so when I finish the next post I'll go to bed and read for a bit.

Haven new series on SyFy

This was on right after the Eureka season premiere, which I haven't seen yet. It's based on Stephen King's The Colorado Kid which I've never read. An FBI agent who has been told by her boss to stop being interested in supernatural things when she's doing her job goes to the town of Haven (somewhere in the NE) and it turns out lots of residents have supernatural powers. She asks for her five weeks of vacation to stay there.

To me it seemed a lot like the fantasy version of Eureka -- a law officer from outside comes into a place where strange things happen and the officer has to help stop them -- so I'll watch it at least once more.
