Was a quiet day. Karma caught up on her sleep--hehe!
I had brought in the bucket with my potting soil--back when I was looking for my old backpack in my storage area (didn't find it-probably in the garage but don't need it now). I got Karma's planter filled and planted with cat grass yesterday.
Set it out on the porch for now.
All my DVDs finally came yesterday--was a Netflix marathon over here! :)
Started season 4 of Supernatural--wow! Dean's mysteriously pulled out of hell?! (Well, we knew the show wouldn't continue without him--hehe!) Sam finally learning how to use his powers of the mind. Hints of the Apocalypse!! Devils and Angels! Which brother is the good brother? Dean backed by angels? Is that really an angel? Or a fallen angel? Wow! Excellent--as usual! :)
True Blood. I can't tell you how totally disappointed I was that they killed off Sookie's grandma!! She was one of the main reason's I was watching, to be honest. I just loved their relationship. And then I was also greatly disappointed that vampire Bill took advantage of Sookie's grief--not only because Sookie was a virgin, but he didn't have to bite her, too! Hummm? We'll have to see how this progresses. This jury of one is still out.
Last, but not least, Shutter Island:
World War II soldier-turned-U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) investigates the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane, but his efforts are compromised by his own troubling visions and by Dr. Cawley (Ben Kingsley). Mark Ruffalo, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer and Max von Sydow co-star in director Martin Scorsese's plot twist-filled psychological thriller set on a Massachusetts island in 1954.
I know there was a lot of debate about the merits of this movie. Some critics really disliked it. There was a division with the movie-goers, too. I knew it was a dark movie and was prepared to either love it or hate it, I guess. Well, I loved it! It didn't take long to figure out that there was a deep psychological mystery, the main character had his own troubled history, and everything was not as it appeared to be. I don't want to ruin anything for anybody with this movie, so I won't tell anything about the plot. Just have to say that my vote went to the "loved it" side. :)
BTW--I forgot to mention that Dagan ordered the parts for my computer/TV system when I was over there on Tuesday night. Tada! So, I should be able to say goodbye to Cable One before the month is out! Hurray!! When I was watching the instant Netflix movies on my laptop, sometimes I'd lose my internet connection and have to wait for it to come back--annoying. The short losses have become pretty common now--I have to be really careful and copy emails before I go to send them because I may not be connected at that time and lose the email altogether. I'll be glad to be rid of Cable One, I think. I hope Idea One will be a better company. No point in dealing with Cable One in the meantime unless I totally lose service and it doesn't come back right away or within a couple hours. (They're not very successful in finding intermittent problems, anyways, in my experience.)
Another rainy cool day.
Might be a good day to start Pillars again? ;)
Have a good one!
