I guess I just like liking things

How have I made it this long without some sort of “a bunch of little things that don’t deserve their own entry but I have thoughts about just the same” category?  I need a better title, but we’ll go with “miscellany” for now, though I also quite like “salmagundi.”

Bulleted for your viewing pleasure:

  • It would appear that NBC is closing up shop on The Michael J. Fox Show, and I want to punch them in their stupid faces. Was it awesome? No. Was it good? I think so. And I definitely think it’s worth waiting for it to get its feet, but that doesn’t seem to be a thing networks do any more.  In today’s environment Seinfeld wouldn’t have made it past its initial season. NBC is jerks.
  • My wife and I watched Captain Phillips and I liked it okay. It was one of those movies that I knew I’d probably like to see but couldn’t work up any interest in seeing, if that makes any sense. But, of course, like any film based on a true story, there’s a lot of “that’s not how it really happened” talk. Maybe we can talk Meags into tackling this one some time.
  • I’ve had my eye on this Lego kit for a while, but it’s been sold out everywhere. I called our nearest Lego store a week ago and he said “It’s not retired, we just haven’t gotten it back in yet.” Well now it’s retired which means anywhere I can get it (eBay) will be at drastically increased prices. Nertz. I was willing to pay $20, I am not willing to pay $50 or more. If you see it, please get it and I’ll pay you back!
  • My wife and I are in season 10 of Cheers and might be able to finish the series before a year has passed since we started it last April. We like it fine, but I’d never rewatch it all the way through. We really didn’t like Diane and Carla is too mean. Frasier and Lilith are pretty much our favorites. We still miss Coach, but Woody’s good, too.
  • Speaking of rewatches, I just finished Season 8 of Scrubs again. This is my 4th or 5th time through, and it won’t be my last. Yes, there’s one more season (and I like S9 more than most do), but the last episode of S8 is the true finale and it’s one of my favorite series finales of all time. Scrubs was my “watch when my wife isn’t ready/available to watch Cheers together” show, so I’m trying to decide what will be next. 30 Rock is a strong possibility, but it’s been several months since I watched Better Off Ted, so…
  • I have plans to go see The Lego Movie tonight with friends and I am psyched. Everything is awesome!

Be well, Lenina Huxley!*
