04:14 pm: Orange Kitty

When I signed offline yesterday, I started reading the paper and there on my porch, looking in through the sliding glass door, was an orange kitty (stripes on legs). When I moved the paper, it looked eye-to-eye with me and clearly wanted in. It kept looking at the inside of the condo and I was saying "orange kitty! orange kitty on the porch!" when Loki came to the living room. When he saw the orange kitty, he crouched down and stealthily moved to the sliding glass doors. That didn't really work, since the orange kitty saw him and backed away then left. It was a nice-looking kitty, but I don't think I can have any more while Junie is alive and she's only four now.

Then I watched those two recorded shows. Here's my choice for worst and best of the new shows I've watched:

Worst Two New TV Shows:

Haven -- a town with supernatural residents is as foggy as the weather.
Rizzoli and Isles -- they're BFFs and they solve crimes!

Best Two New TV Shows:

Memphis Beat -- great music embedded in a good police show.
Covert Affairs -- the trainee is pulled up to active CIA duty to find it's a lot harder than she thought.

I planned to watch a DVD last night after the late news, but I was sleepy. This time I managed to read for a couple of hours and go to sleep at 2am. I got up at 12pm, with some help from Junie. I'm almost done with washing the bedding, and then I'll do a load of my clothes.

During the late news last night, Spirit was up on top of the recliner for a while and Junie came to sit diagonally on my lap. Spirit started coming down the other side (using my shoulder as a step) and I thought she'd be going to eat or something, but she moved onto the other side of my lap from Junie and Junie smacked her like crazy. I didn't have to push Junie off, she knew she was bad, but I stayed longer out here so I could pet Spirit and make her feel better. I couldn't figure out if Spirit didn't see Junie or thought she would be nice.

Well -- I had three instant offs in the last 25 minutes. We almost never get even one, so when the second happened as Windows was checking the files, I turned everything off and went to sit in the recliner with Spirit. I knew there'd be a big storm today, but we have lots of those without losing power.

I am digging The Good Guys on Fox. I like Bradley Whitford's out-of-touch detective, who seems to think he's the hero of a Seventies cop movie, to the exasperation of all those around him.

Getting kind of tired of detective shows, though. Will have to check out Covert Affairs. I always liked spy shows...

I saw the premiere of The Good Guys and it just didn't do anything for me. The spy (Piper Perabo) wears Louboutin heels. Most are very tall, but all have bright red soles. They cost about $700 each, so I wonder where her money is coming from.

Haven took 3 episodes before I 'got it'. Most shows the hero has to keep the magic causes of the crimes a secret to protect the population from freaking out. But in Haven, everyone in the town knows weird stuff happens and they just seem to take it all for granted. And even the FBI agent/new cop in town seems to take it in stride. BTW I borrowed THE COLORADO KID by Stephen King from the library and basically the only thing that the book and the show have in common is the location and the 2 newspaper men. The book is about a partially solved mystery. A dead man is discovered by some kids on the way to school. He has no I.D. but he has a pack of cigarettes and a Russian coin. The state police don't do much because the cause of death is determined to be choking on food. Its the 2 newspaper men that figure out who the man is and lead to the real mystery. The man was last seen about 10 am at his office in Colorado and somehow manages to catch the last ferry to the Maine island by 6pm. There is no record of how he got from one point to the other and no explanation as to why.
Covert Affairs bugs me. She's just too perfect for the job, and if she has a good paying job, why does she still have to live at her sister's? But maybe that's why she can afford to buy expensive boots. LOL.

I'm just not that fond of fantasy to like Haven.

Why she lives with her sister? Well, did you know that there's always young congressmen sharing townhouses because the rent/mortgages are so high in DC? One congressman sleeps on a couch in his office and showers down at the Congressional gym. And CIA spies get a lot less pay than other federal agents at what would be the same level. People go into it because they think they'll like that kind of job or because of their patriotism, not for the pay.
