First, yes I live. It is tax season but I am taking a break. Had routine medical screening today, so stomach cramping and I want to relax and shred paper and watch TV. But since I have no TV in room with shedder has to be on computer. Hence my problem.
I recently discoverd Person of Interest and really like it. However, it is not on demand, and CBS only has 1 full episode available for watching. HULA say no full episodes allowed becuase not legal.
Anyone know a safe place, that will not infect my PC, where I can watch the show?
Anyone liking this show?
Well, it seems I very rarely post here, but New Years is a must. So I wish everyone a happy, healthy and enjoyable 2011. May God shine down on you with nothing but joy, success and love. I know 2010 (and 2008 and 2009) has been rough for many, so as we begin the next decade may it be one where the "lessons" of the last few years sow benefits we can enjoy and share.
P.S. I saw Kings Speech. Good movie, I so love Colin Firth. But seriously, Harry Potter has ruined theater going for anything British. My mind kept going, - oh look, Dumbledore, oh, its Bellatrix, WTH is Pettigrew doing???? Thank God Colin was never in any of them. And yes, he deserves an Oscar, very understated performance, but not as subtle as his performance in A Single Man.
Okay, I actually feel like posting and about a fannish thing believe it or not. So, tonight I watched the Oscars - first time in like 15 years. I so wanted to see Colin Firth. That crush I had on him when I was young. So not over it!!!!. Anyway I watched the pre-show hoping to see him walk the carpet, but they did not show him, or at least the station I had on. But who did they show - Sally Sparrow! Yep, apparently young Carey Mulligan. And might I saw she was looking a hell of a lot like Ith when I first met her.
And, then Colin gets to intro Carey's film.
To bad he lost to Jeff Bridges. I actually saw both The Single Man and Crazy Heart. Not that Jeff's performance wasn't good, it is just Colin's performance was better - more nuanced and difficult. Lot of English accents and such which was good, the awards are going international.
Here is to more Sally Sparrow and Colin Firth.
Now, back to the taxes I totally ignored tonight.
Well is is 2 minutes to the New Year! And, as I type this I am trying to figure out what if anytihng has changed from the last New Years post I wrote.
That one was looking forward to 2009 since 2008 was a real stinker. But folks, got to tell you 2009 did not live up to its hype (a common occurance during the year I tihnk), anyway, I will try to stay positive and hope that 2010 is much better. That all those facing tough times because of the economy and job loss, dealing with health issues and otherwise just a little down will find health, happiness and prosperity in 2010 and beyond.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
As I gladly send 2008 off into the past, I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! Let us hope that 2009 brings everyone nothing but good health, utter happiness and joy and good fortunes in life, love and work.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during a rough 2008.
As for New Years Resolutions, I am only making one.
I am letting go of everything in the past. All the hurt, sadness, loss, anger, resentment, disappointment and malaise of the past.
To wit, I have spent the day - when not shoveling the snow we got here in Boston - shredding papers (except of source stuff I need to complete 2008 taxes) that cover everything from past job CYA files, to my grandparents care and records, past legal issues, jobs records, personal records, health records, travel information and finances. It is a real world attempt to symbolize my resolution of letting go and starting fresh.
So here is to starting 2009 with nothing. What comes, comes. What does not come, I will not miss.
So to 2009, I start it with no job and nothing owned. But also no debt and nothing owed. I am letting go of the past on all fronts. So I have no hurt, anger, resentment, sadness or fear. And, no expectations, promises or to do list.
2009 will be whatever it will be.
And God willing, it will be a year filled with hope, good surprises, good opportunities both personal and professional and most of all, full of good friends, like all of you.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
