TV Meme Lineup

Like I said yesterday, I'm rebooting my blog by doing a few long memes that my friend DK did on Sidewalk Crossings.  I figured I'd start with this one cuz the TV season has just begun and I'm all psyched about my fave current shows :-)

The line up:

Day 01 - A show that should never have been canceled
Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching
Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season)
Day 04 - Your favorite show ever
Day 05 - A show you hate
Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite TV show
Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show
Day 08 - A show everyone should watch
Day 09 - Best scene ever
Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving
Day 11 - A show that disappointed you
Day 12 - An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times
Day 13 - Favorite childhood show
Day 14 - Favorite male character
Day 15 - Favorite female character
Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show
Day 17 - Favorite mini series
Day 18 - Favorite title sequence
Day 19 - Best TV show cast
Day 20 - Favorite kiss
Day 21 - Favorite ship
Day 22 - Favorite series finale
Day 23 - Most annoying character
Day 24 - Best quote
Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)
Day 26 - What the...? Season finale
Day 27 - Best pilot episode
Day 28 - First TV show obsession
Day 29 - Current TV show obsession
Day 30 - Saddest character death

No idea if I'll be able to do one of these every day, but I'm sure gonna try.  See you tomorrow!

Let's Try This Again

As Sam Gamgee said, "Well, I'm back."

I thought for a while that a post about my first experience seeing Hamlet live seemed like a sort of capstone for a blog titled Hamlette's Soliloquy.  Plus, I loved seeing the Playbill whenever I visited this blog.  I didn't want that post to get pushed down, much less end up in my archives, as if my memory of that magical evening would also be displaced.  Silly me.  That's a memory I'll cherish all my life -- it's not dependent on whether I blog again here or not.

And so, I'm back.  I've changed up the look of things a bit, as you've no doubt noticed.  A lot has changed in my life since I last wrote here, nearly a year ago.  I gave birth to our daughter, Mercy, in February -- she's now 7 months old and learning to walk.  Dano will be 3 in a couple weeks, and he's learning to read.  And we'll all be moving soonish, whenever Cowboy's new job is ready for him.  Just a transfer to a new position, but it means we'll be moving to a different state.  Oooh, that's gonna be fun.  Anyway, thought a new look for this blog might be nice, kind of an "All the world's a stage" look, I think.  I changed my user icon too, from Sir John Gielgud as Hamlet to Liev Schreiber as Hamlet.  Because I'm crushing on Liev lately and it's a cool shot.

I'm going to get back into this blog's groove by doing a meme or two.  My dear friend Deborah Koren did several 30-day memes on her blog, Sidewalk Crossings, this year, and they've been tempting me, begging me to come back to the blogosphere.  I'm heeding their call at last.  Haven't quite decided which one to do first yet, so I'll post about that more tomorrow.  Wish me luck!
