I finally have something to watch on Sunday Nights

Thank God!!! Mr. Craftylilly and get addicted to some of HBO's own series. We love Deadwood and Carnivale. We used to watch Sex and the City pretty regularly before it ended. We also used to watch Oz when it was on. Tonight marks the beginning of a new series, Rome, and it looks right up our alley. WooHoo!!! In keeping with my practice lately of talking about our recent movie watching, I've got two movie reviews for you. First up, Ring Two... Moving right along to the second movie, last night we saw a movie from the late 70s called The Duelists. It was Ridley Scott's directorial debut. It also had Keith Carradine, looking very young, and Harvey Keitel who looks much like he does today, frighteningly enough. It wasn't bad. You could tell that Scott has talent, but of course this film is no where near as good as some of his later work. Even Alien, made a few years after, shows much improvement. In knitting news, I'm moving right along on Hopeful. I also signed up with the Kepler KAL, but am still waiting on my yarn, Cascade 220 Tweed in Eggplant. It'll be my first experience with cables so wish me luck. I'm also spinning some. I decided to give my Zebrawood Bossie a whirl with some wool roving my son and I dyed with Koolaid. It's coming out nicely I think. My yarn is still a little uneven, but I can tell I'm slowly improving. I've sold a few markers on Etsy and have put up some more. I'm also been quite active on the Swap board of the Knittyboard. I'm going to be adding new yarn to my bargain bin this week. I'll post when the new stuff is up! Off I go to get the kidlets up from napville!

I'm hoping Rome is good [it comes on in 3 minutes!]...Deadwood is getting on my nerves and I'm so upset Carnivale isn't coming back. :(

*snigger* The man and I watched that the other night. Boy did it suck. But then we had to keep watching to see what happened.

We watched Rome last night too :-)
The Latin names in English confuse me (kept asking my husband, is that one supposed to be ....), but I liked it!
