I really think they need some help. Firstly, enough already with the reality TV shows. I'm over it already. I don't necessarily have a problem with reality TV shows in theory, but there's a limit. Then you add the notion that much of what's on TV really isn't any good. (At least in my opinion.) Finally, someo really good shows get cancelled way before their time. Case in point, RM and I just finished watching Firefly on DVD. Now, that was an excellent TV show. The dialogue was good, the idea interesting, good acting, compelling story. Why cancel it after only one season? Some more evidence, Freaks and Geeks. I loved that show and again it was cancelled after just one season. La Femme Nikita (pre-Alias, Alias totally copied it) went several seasons, but then it gets cancelled unexpectedly, and the show ends with a completely ridiculous and unsatisfying ending. HBO's Carnivale suffers the same fate. I'm annoyed, deeply annoyed. Of course, RM and I really don't watch much network TV anymore. Most evenings find us on the couch watching something on DVD. You did all notice the DVD stash, right? I wanted to thank Kelly for sending me a lovely Karma Swap package. She sent me two balls of Knitpicks Palette in a lovely purple. I've never used or seen Palette before, so I'm very excited. She also sent along a couple of balls of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton destined to become some washcloths, and some cute stitch markers. Thanks Kelly! Felted SP is also coming to an end. I'm excited to discover who's been spoiling me with Noro and Malabrigo. Progress continues apace on the Berry soda Clapper, and my Peeps socks. I hope to have some progress pics soon. Until then, enjoy these pics of yellow flowers that came in an arrangement that my best friend sent me in remembrance of my grandmother. I really am developing a new appreciation of yellow and orange.
