Back in the World

On Friday last week, I ended up somewhat unexpectedly out of commission for the weekend, and early into this week. It was that combination of delightful to have an excuse to do nothing, and crappy because you can't get off the couch, that tends to occur when one ends up somewhat out of commission for a few days.

But Lithus is a care-taker, par excellence, and we live in the day and age of the internet. So, I have been well cared for and spent my time far less bored than I used to.

Netflix. What did we ever do before streaming? I binged on Terriers, 666 Park Avenue, Hemlock Grove, Scandal, and House of Cards. 666 Park Avenue and Hemlock Grove both ended just in time, because they would have lost me if they gone much further (and while I don't think Hemlock Grove is canceled, I won't be tuning in for season 2, because, well, the first season ended just in time). I couldn't quite get into Lillyhammer, FarScape, or Chuck ~ although it is very possible I will be giving all three of these more chances. They're good ~ I just can't binge on them.

Stupid tests. I have found out that I should live in Tanzania. Don't believe me?

What Country Do You Actually Belong In?

You got: Tanzania. Not to be confused with Tasmania, which is actually just part of Australia. Tanzania is located on the east coast of Africa, and borders a number of Africa’s Great Lakes, so you get a little bit of everything. More than 80% of the population in Tanzania is rural, so it’s an ideal place to live if you’re looking to really spread out. Make sure to get a place near the water, though — not many people live in the arid regions.

As Lithus puts it, that makes no sense, while really making perfect sense. That's me, the quivering mass of contradictions. And anyway, would BuzzFeed lie? I think not.

Web Comics. Girls With Slingshots. Romantically Apocalyptic. Questionable Content. The most amazing thing, to me, is watching these artists evolve. Girls and QC look nothing today like they did on their first entry. Nothing. Like, are they being drawn by the same artists, nothing. Amazing. And warning, Romantically Apocalyptic gets weird. That's coming from me, folks, so, yeah. Weird.

And with that, I believe we are back in the swing of things here at Pobble Thoughts. As always, thanks for sticking around.

Fuzzy socks and comfy clothes

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

I got Netherlands for my country. So sorry you were feeling untoward but you got a lot done. I also owe you a response to your recent letter and will get that off to you shortly.

Hope it wasn't anything too serious. Sometimes that forced downtime is nice. Hope yours was more good than bad.

Ian ~ Actually, I got nothing done but napping and eating. Being a bear on pain meds makes for an interesting weekend. :)

So and So ~ All's well, thankfully. The down time was good, from what I can remember, anyway.

AppsRUs ~ Gotta love fuzzy socks and comfy clothes. :)
