It's January 2nd...  
and I've already had Secret Spider Surprise shower #2 (see previous post). Truthfully, my reaction is generally, "Gah, why are you in here? Why are you ALWAYS in here?" And it isn't "always," but today? Sure felt like it.

We watched Spy last night, which was entertaining. I would have probably preferred it as a PG-13 movie instead of R-rated. I'm not really a fan of raunchy comedy, and those moments didn't add anything to the movie. But they did rob it of a potential audience of younger viewers who might have enjoyed it.

For garage-biking (because it's been below 50o all but one or two days in the last couple of weeks), I finished Breaking Bad, and am now getting back in synch with The Walking Dead. I'm in Season 3, and when I'd stopped watching it before it was because HalfshellHusband bailed on the show. But the Governor also reminded me of the idiot boss I was working for at the time, a guy who did real damage to my career and those of a few other people. Still kind of raises my stress level just seeing him! I still love Hershel, and Glenn is still my favorite, though I like Michonne a lot too. Andrea? I want to slap her, but I no longer want to slap Carol. So much "Argh" over Merle, and I hate his voice. Hey, at least it's never boring.

One more day until the grind resumes, and I'm just not ready. How about you?

I have to agree about the movie Spy.

Absolutely not ready for life to lurch forward tomorrow.

In a lot of ways, R-rated comedies are unnecessarily limiting. I don't enjoy the R-rated parts more (and I'm not sure most people do), and they prevent teen audiences from seeing a movie they might like. Teen girls would have been a great audience for "Spy," and I understand that it didn't do very well at the box office, so... what was the point of the R rating? One that was so aggressively pursued?

Why must the new work year start on a Monday? That just makes it go on forevvver. Plus, I don't envy seeing what new batch of students you'll be saddled with-- unless you're on a Semester system instead of quarters?

Wow! Only Season 3! You have got some surprises coming. There are a couple of stinker eps but don't give up. It's worth it. m :)

I don't even know how many seasons there are at this point! I started late, and I'm getting more behind all the time. But definitely entertaining. A LOT grosser than I'd like, but that's all zombie stuff, really. I don't actually like zombies. Why must there be so much fun writing centered around them? :O

Happy New Year!
