Okay this entry is going to be long, since there's a lot to talk about. But I'll try to keep it as short as I can.

In short, my Granny had a heartattack on Saturday afternoon. It was very minor, and she got to come home this evening, so we're hoping everything's going to be alright. She had to have a stint put in, but I don't know all the details. I'm going to go over tomorrow and talk to her about it and figure everything out.

Secondly, I needed to share this. It was my lunch today. And it was FANTASTIC.

And now on to TV, since other than the hearttack, that's the only thing that's been going on the past few days.

I would like to know who decided shows should have seasons. And I would like to hurt that person. I don't want my shows to end!

Cut for finale spoilers )

Thankfully I still have at least one more week left on a few of my shows.

I don't know who came up with the idea of Netflix instant watch, but I would like to find said person and shake their hand. Or give them a kiss. . . whatever.

I fully intended on going on Netflix and watching something completely different, but in my suggestions box thing, it gave me one of the Doctor Who Christmas specials, one with David Tennant. I couldn't resist. Like I said in my last post, Tennant is my Doctor.

But then it got me going about the TARDIS again, so I thought I would include some pictures.

Seriously, I can't understand why they would make the decision to change her. She was perfect. Perfect and Steampunky in all the good ways. I love Rust Bucket TARDIS. I think I'm going convince my little brother to watch all the seasons with me, just so I can get my Tennant/Rust Bucket TARDIS fix. It's needed.

Okay, quick side note about the neoprene waist trimmer thing. Lots o' sweat. My middle was dripping with grossness. But my posture was fantastic!

Okay, on to Doctor Who. I'm a real big fan of [personal profile] copperbadge, both his fic and his life in general, and if I remember correctly, he's part of the reason I started watching Torchwood and Doctor Who in the first place. I always read his Three Things about the episodes, and I love them. I'm not going to copy him or anything like that, but I am going to give my reaction to the episode.

Beware: Image Heavy Post Ahead

So I made that delicious chicken/almond/zucchini thing again tonight, and this time I remembered to take pictures to show everyone.

Warning: Deliciousness Ahead )

In other news, tomorrow is Mother's Day. So today my dad and I went out to get Mom her present. Mom's always like handmade stuff more than bought things, so I decided that since I already have a bunch of pastel acrylic paints from last summer's art projects, I would buy her a photo box and paint it all pretty. Here's what happened.

Craftiness Abounds! )

I went to the library today, since I decided to torture myself by reading all the great romances over the summer. I'm starting out with Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It's really long, and due back on the 22nd. If I can pull myself away from the computer long enough to read it, I know I can have it finished. I'm excited to get some culture.

I bought something else today. A neoprene waist trimming band. I saw it on Dr. Oz the other day and really wanted to give it try, and when I saw one at Walmart today for 5 bucks I couldn't resist. I've only been wearing it for a few hours, but it's really making me aware of my posture. I have terrible posture except RIGHT after I do yoga, so this will be good for that. I don't know what effect it's actually going to have on my waist trimming, but at this point I'm willing to try anything.

New Doctor Who on tonight, and I'm really excited. I'll save that for another post though, after it's over. I don't want to make this post any longer than it already is.

Okay, now I'm going to expound upon yesterdays mini post, because I was exhausted.

I decided this summer while I'm home and my brother is in school that I'm going to walk to pick him up during the week. We only live about a mile and a half from his school, so it's a three mile walk almost every day. It's really not a big deal, and it feels really good. . . after the exhaustion has worn off of course. I'm hoping that, along with the walking on the treadmill will do a lot to help the weight boost. It was really weird the first morning after the walk when my right knee wouldn't work though.

Another thing I discovered that I hadn't watched before: Dr. Oz. New favorite show. I enjoy educational television. Today he was talking about alternative medicine, and I think I've found something I want to try. A jelly bath. You put this gel stuff in the water and it keeps the heat in longer than regular water. It appears to be very relaxing. I should try it.

It's been a long day, otherwise. Dad worked up enough time that he doesn't have to go to work today, so he stayed home. . . and when Dad stays home, we do work. Last night we mowed half the LARGE yard, and today we finished that off, cut some tree limbs, and washed three cars. I'm thoroughly exhausted, but still walking on the treadmill.

It always creeps me out a little/gets me excited when I hear my hometown mentioned on TV shows. I'm from Tallahassee, FL, which, as not too many people know, is the capital of the state.

For instance, there's an episode of Brotherly Love (I miss this show so much), where Matt doesn't know what the capital of Florida is (The first instance is at about minute 4 in Part 1.), and I can't express how much I loved this episode when I was younger. The joke continues through the whole episode, and it really shows how a lot of people think. Most people think that the capital is Orlando, or Miami, or Disney World. But no, it's up here in Tallahassee.

What creeps me out is shows like Criminal Minds. I don't normally watch it, but my mother does, and she turned it on tonight while I was still in the room and I heard them talking about Tallahassee. The episode was all about a couple of serial killers in the Tallahassee area. And at one point, they talk about FSU. . . my university. I mean, I know it's just a show, but Ted Bundy was not just a show. I get nervous walking around campus at night, since my father is a police officer, I've always been told not to walk alone, so I don't.

I'm just glad I've got three more months before I'm back on campus.
