This morning I gingerly stepped on the scale to find that I had lost two pounds. While but a minor victory, this set the stage for a very good day of the sort that only comes on weekends when I am at liberty to do whatever I want and am in a good mood, because I've just lost two pounds. So, it was Sunday and the world was my oyster (as long as it was not to be fried, sauteed in butter or served with any kind of fattening sauce), because (in the words of Cartman) I do what I want. But what would I do?
After having a bowl of turkey noodle soup for breakfast (don't look at me like that, it was the special, irresistible one with the stock made with the peanutbutter...you would have done it too!), I determined that I was feeling my inner heathen and would not be going to church. This freed me up to stay home and make a collage while watching multiple Angel episodes. All in all, it was a good choice. The collage is not done (but is coming along), but is still satisfying. My DVD watching allowed me to behold the wonder that is Numfar of the Deathwok Clan do the Dance of Joy (and that of Honor) until he was called off to do the Dance of Shame. Truly, the few collected minutes of the episode with the Joss Whedon Numfar cameo, made the whole of Season 2 (which was good even without Numfar) worthwhile.
One of the really great things about my years (mid-90's - early 2000's)of non- (or at least severely limited) non-news television watching is that as I discover shows that are no longer running new on t.v., but have their collected episodes on dvd, I can indulge my nerdy obsessions without having to wait a full week to see what happens next. It also allows me to feel like I live in a time warp as I am presently reliving 2001 instead of watching the hot new shows that are on now. If I did, what would I watch in 2013?
