I hope those in the US are enjoying their Memorial Day weekend. I certainly am… by doing absolutely nothing at all.
Mo and I saw Pirates of the Caribbean on Friday and Disturbia yesterday with the latter surprisingly being the better of the two. I don’t know if I had too high expectations for POTC or what but it wasn’t the fun time I was hoping for. It was way too long especially since there were plenty of scenes I felt could have been cut. Oh well. Meanwhile, I’m a little disturbed at how attractive I suddenly find Shia LeBeouf. I’m not generally a younger guy type of girl (SHUT UP, peanut gallery) so I have no idea where that came from.
After the movie, I came home and watched the season finale of Robin Hood. Hot damn, Jonas Armstrong is fine. (Yeah, yeah, I just looked it up and he’s also a younger guy. WHATEVER.) It probably helps that it’s this particular story and I have a fondness for “Robin Hood” in general. I actually had one issue with the episode but, overall, am happy with how it ended. I wonder how long they can keep it going. I don’t think I’v ever said this about one of my shows but I’m kind of hoping the second season is the last season.
Oh, yeah, I watched On the Lot on Thursday and it has potential. I’m officially sick of all reality shows that feel the need to include their auditions. Seriously, if I wanted to watch the auditions I’d be watching “Getting on the Show.” So stop already, reality show producers. I also watched Studio 60 and slightly amused to find that I didn’t really care for this episode (although there were some really funny parts) but elsewhere online people keep saying how the show might have made it longer if it had stuck with these type of episodes. I am destined to always be on the opposite side of the fence.
Continuing the saga of my attack bird, I met my mailman yesterday. He shared that the bird actually chases him all the way down the street and suddenly I understood why he hadn’t picked up my outgoing mail for three days. He had also heard (as I did from you guys) to try an umbrella. Umm, yeah, that doesn’t work so great. He walked me out to my car and the bird was not at all deterred by the umbrella. He came right up underneath it to get at us. Lovely! Although, it was funny because my mailman’s reaction was, “DAMN BIRD!!!” Haha. Then, today my neighbor moved out and he dive-bombed them throughout the entire process. To think, the guys helping her hadn’t believed her stories about the attack bird living by her front door. I think the babies are old enough to make noise now because he’s gotten more and more aggressive over the past few days. Even followed me right up to my front door yesterday. Here’s hoping those kids are old enough to move out of the nest soon!
So, tonight NBC starts repeating Friday Night Lights. They aren’t, contrary to reports I saw elsewhere, starting at the beginning but, if for some reason you don’t want to catch up for free online, it’s the perfect reason to tune in. Hey, nothing else is on… why not give FNL a shot, right?
And, on that note, I think I shall go sneak out my back door to the Target. S4 of The OC came out this week and they have it on sale along with S6 of Gilmore Girls.
