Sweden switched to summertime last weekend, which invariable makes me feel jet-lagged and cranky. As I do when we go into winter time too. I would much rather we kept to one time all year round.
And on Sunday my spring allergies exploded- I strongly suspect the birches. I hate feeling congested and stupid. But it’s pretty outside, especially by the lake when I am walking the dogs. The downside with the warmer weather is that Tom catches mice. Suddenly he jumps one-two-three and the poor thing squeals its last. I hate it, but I don’t know how to stop it- he does it even when he’s on the leach. Luckily he is very good at dropping it when I tells him. I keep telling him he is bred for sheepherding, not hunting. Teddie, on the other hand, has no instincts at all- he only wants to goof around. To his delight the swan couple was back today. He loves them and lives in hope they will someday want to play with him. They, on the other hand, are not pleased at all with this doggly adoration.
I haven’t done a what I have been watching-post in ages, so here goes. Everything under the cut may contain spoilers.( Grimm )
But OUAT! Well, I think I can safely say I will give up this show after this season. And I stay on now only because I really am very fond of Oded Fehr and I hope he will turn up again. I even saw that trite shit called Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo
for his sake. (and was rewarded with a naked Oded Fehr, those minutes sure wasn’t wasted). But when it comes to OUAT I have grown tired of this constant bombardment of new characters who are given no grounding and who are gone before one get to know them. And all the villains! What’s wrong with having one or possibly two Big Bad each season? This is what I think goes on in the heads of those who are behind OUAT (beware of snarking):( OUAT )( Supernatural )( The Blacklist )
I’ve also started to watch Blacklist redemption
, which I like, thought it’s much more a straight up action thriller. I like Famke Jensen and I also like that they have opted to give a woman around 50 such a hefty role.
Husband and I are also watching Eureka
, which is a re-watch for me, and new to him. It’s a rather charming show, I think. I was a bit surprised to see Tygh Runyan (Fabien Marchal in Versailles
pop up in an episode as Fargo’s grandfather. I recognized the voice before I placed the face- he looked quite different without a long wig and facial hair.
