• 5 TV shows I wish I could watch

    Wednesday, June 11, 2014 Permalink

    I’m a good girl. Back when my school friends dared each other to steal a 50c bracelet at the local show I steered clear.

    If I’m really honest I think it’s only the ‘getting in trouble’ I worry about. As for the naughtiness… well… #meh.

    Which is a long-winded way of explaining why I won’t illegally download TV series or movies. It’s really not the ethics or morality of it all – just my fear of getting caught.

  • Top 10 female TV sleuths. According to me

    I was ranting speaking to someone recently about female detectives and how they’re so often still a ‘sidekick’ to their male counterpart (Bones, Castle, The Mentalist, CSI x 15 come to mind). However… I’ve since reminded myself of a few kick-ass females who’ve taken a lead role over the years and decided to share my top 10 female detectives of all time!

  • My first obsession: Steve and Jaime

    You may have noticed that, because I’ve got such hardy self-esteem, I have no problems confessing to the occasional foible or idiosyncrasy. (Then again, there’s also my leaning towards self-deprecation…!)

    Either way, as a result, I have no problems admitting to addictions. I’ve confessed to binge reading, binge tweeting, and the fact I am a television addict. Indeed the latter goes WAAAAY back.  It’s not just the likes of Buffy and The West Wing which have tickled my fancy. No sirreee… I was addicted way back in the day of the Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men, Chips, Starsky and Hutch and Charlie’s Angels – to name just a few of my childhood faves.

  • The sequel and the spoiler alert

    I’ve had a post-it note sitting on my kitchen bench for weeks. Possibly months. In fact I have a few. As a lover of words I occasionally hear a quote or phrase I like and jot it down. More often that not I eventually throw the piece of paper away, or the scribble in my notebook gets lost amidst other stuff. Like grocery lists.

    Anyhoo, this quote was by JJ Abrams, director of the latest Star Trek movie and from an interview he did after the movie’s launch.
