I'm Baaack! And TV Stuff, Too!
I ended up going off for the weekend rather unexpectedly (nothing bad, mind you). I left a certain cat alone as I was only gone two nights. She decided to pout in an amazon.com box. I thought she'd be better off alone stocked with plenty of food and water rather than be boarded. She's decided she wants to live in a box.
I heard a loud metal CLANG on New Year's night. It was late at night. I peeked out my window to check on the cars in our lot. All looked fine and I couldn't see anything amiss. Uh-oh. This is my neighbor's fence facing the street. The boulders they had in place so people don't park halfway up off the curb were all awry. There are various scattered car parts and a section of metal fence about 8 feet long is in a messed-up heap piled against the still standing section. I have a feeling this is another case of damaged parked cars, too. How do people do this? It's a straight-away with city speed limits.
This is the latest photo of the kale. The patches of snow only exist as this is somewhat shaded by a brick wall doohickey.
Onto television stuff!
The Bachelor returns tonight. I'll be putting up a new discussion post for the show early this evening. I hope to see you there!
Another dance show makes its debut tonight -- Superstars of Dance on NBC. It's running the same two hours as The Bachelor, from 8 to 10 PM ET/PT. I might give it a shot tonight as I'm not into The Bachelor and the shows I do watch on CBS are repeats tonight.
Over on CliqueClack TV, you can find my latest review of Cold Case (plus a lot of other neat articles). Then, if you like spoilers (nothing earth-shattering), I have a post up over on TV Squad with some rather gentle (no winners, etc.) spoilers for the upcoming season of The Amazing Race. It's mostly locations, a few links to pictures taken of a few of the teams as they raced, and a reveal of who one of the teams are.
It's nice to have some new shows to watch after the last few weeks, isn't it? Of course, it won't be long until TAR and Survivor (along with American Idol) take up our lives again! Unfortunately, I have to return to work tomorrow. Boo. Hiss.
Today's musical non sequitur:
Black and orange stray cat sittin' on a fence
Ain't got enough dough to pay the rent
I'm flat broke but I don't care
I strut right by with my tail in the air
I wish I could be as carefree and wild,
but I got cat class and I got cat style.
