Random Musings – Motivation, TV, Bentos and More!

March 15, 2010 2 comments

So I’ve been kind of lax about posting lately, I know. Kingpotato has been working crazy hours at his job which kind of threw me into a wrench. It’s hard to adjust to coming home and having just the dog and cats to keep me company.

So, in Kingpotato’s absence I’ve been trying my hardest to keep myself motivated and not slack off. So I’ve been cleaning house, trying to keep up with bento and dinner menus and doing more exercise. I’ve actually used EA Active for (I think) the third time and I’m really starting to feel the burn! But despite the productivity, it’s even easier to fall into time wasting traps. For example:

I have now watched 2 episodes of “The Marriage Ref” which I have to say is fairly embarrasing. I don’t want to watch this show. I don’t like this show and the most recent episode with Ricky Gervais, Madonna and Larry David was downright uncofortable to watch. And yet, I finished the episode anyway. Fail. And yes, I just linked you to said uncomfortable episode, which is an even bigger fail.

After about three days of Netflix viewing, I am almost halfway through the entire 22 episode series of Earth 2.  It’s an interesting little sci-fi series that NBC picked up and promptly cancelled after just one season.  But at least it’s there for me to enjoy on Netflix.  It’s certainly got it’s quirks and there were some interesting choices made production wise.  It could be better, but it could also be a lot worse.  I remember watching it when it first came out as a kid, but we just never finished it.  Well, this time I’m gonna.

I’ve also been dreaming about bentos.  Yes, it’s a problem I have.  But I stumbled upon this great site Bento & Co. They have such lovely products I can’t stop looking at them.  The site is in French, but thanks to the magic of Google Translate I can read french.  I will definitely be making a purchase (or two or three…) as soon as I can scrounge up the money.  I’ll have to convert it to Euros, but it’s totally worth it.

Finally, as of today my cousin has (re)joined the blogging world.  So far she’s just written her mission statement, but I’m pretty excited to see what she posts.  She’s got a great sense of humor loves too cook and a pretty awesome writer.  Since some of her writing topics overlap with mine I’m sure I’ll find plenty of reasons to link her in the future.
