I’m an admitted home body, I love being at home but I also liked having the option of not being at home when I wanted. With what is gearing up to be a long, long winter ahead & having even more quiet time at home, I have definitely been consuming more than my fair share of media. Books, music, television, movies – sometimes I have the radio on while I am reading a book – madness, I tell you. Really anything that will distract me from shopping online, eating or watching the news 😛
I missed out on this classic during my youth but have made up for these past few weeks. It’s just fun, wholesome, 90’s entertainment. Sarah Michelle Gellar was such a teen queen & David Boreanaz is still my ultimate dream boat. I’m a big fan of Agent Booth in Bones & didn’t realize he played such a major role in Buffy. I don’t get why the vampires are all so hideous but I have enjoyed every episode so far. I think I might check out Charmed next as I never watched that one before either.
I am a repeat offender of watching comfort shows instead of checking out new ones, I am trying to break this habit. The Office takes me back to college & my dorm mates hunkering down to watch new episodes when we had spare time. Even though I’ve watched so many of the episodes dozens of times, they still crack me up. I think that my favorites are the Christmas episodes but I will elaborate more on that during Blogmas 😛
This show has been surprisingly tough for me to get into even though I have a keen interest in the royal family. Not the newest generation, my interest stops with Diana but Queen Elizabeth & Princess Margaret are some of my favorite royals to read about. I felt inclined to dive back into the show when Gillian Anderson was announced as Margaret Thatcher – I cannot wait to get to the most recent season.
New folk, old folk, all the folk. I’ve been enjoying The Decemberists, Simon & Garfunkel, Joan Baez, The Traveling Wilburys, John Denver – you name it, I’ve been rocking out to it. The Mariner’s Revenge Song has been my favorite to drive around & scream sing too. Also, I can’t carry a tune so I mostly scream sing everything 😀 The live version of My Back Pages sung by most of the members of the Traveling Wilburys has also been a repeat. I never understood the chorus but it makes a lot more sense to me in my adulthood.
This series is so good! I had the first book on a recent To Be Read & am so glad that I did. It’s not as good as the world of Harry Potter but it is still a very fun & if you have any interest in the darker, youth fantasy genre I would recommend checking it out. I have been listening to the series on Audible & I think the narrator is fantastic all around but would definitely pick up a hard copy too. The storyline of cursed children is dark but the main character is saved from her demise & that’s where the adventure begins.
I have a lot of time on my hands so if you have any recommendations, let me know! I’m not looking for anyting super heavy right now but open to most anything else 🤍
