Smallville is still my happy place

18 Nov

Recently, Smallville celebrated it’s 20th anniversary. I was inspired to spend that weekend (one where I happened to be under the weather) vegging on the couch rewatching the series. I initially decided that I would jump around, skipping episodes, but then I got caught in a season I hadn’t watched in a long time and it’s been a full binge ever since. Let’s just assume there be spoilers here for anyone who hasn’t watched the series… Continue reading

What’s new, pussycat?

14 Nov

So… here I was being good about posting for a minute but then… I went back to work. And got a second job. And California caught fire. Again. And I, once again, burrowed under my covers and hid.

Besides all of that, my Facebook got destroyed and that seems to have wiped my abilities to connect.

It was a lot. But I see that both Stewart and I are making moves to poke our heads out.

I’ll start?

I was thinking recently, as I drove to work, that I haven’t been motivated to watch any new TV seasons/series in a while. The only new show that I watched in the last year was Superman and Lois. But I used to get excited for all the new seasons/mid-season premieres and want to give everything a try. I’m not entirely sure what happened to make me lose all interest. I know that part of my depression is/was not being up to “new”, and thus I just binge The Simpsons, home improvement/house hunting shows, CSI (all of them), etc… Things I have seen so many times that there was no anxiety if I missed a few minutes or an episode.

What should I be watching? What has drawn you in? What are you excited for?

I tried the new CSI when it premiered and I think I will be able to manage that. But everyone around me is talking about how I have to watch this and be sure to watch that. Which, I don’t know… I feel pressured and that doesn’t work well for me.

I also haven’t seen many new movies since pre-covid times. We went to see Free Guy and Jungle Cruise and The Suicide Squad. But that’s it. I have Black Widow  and Wonder Woman ’84… I still haven’t watched them. I need to. I want to. But when I sit down to do it… Those binges I already mentioned look so much better. I was telling myself the other night that I need to watch a series I just picked up season 2 of on disk, before the new season starts soon. Maybe I will get around to it. It’s probably one of the ones Stewart has yelled at me about.

I bought a new book recently too. I stopped buying a lot of books for a while because I don’t read as much as I should. Which I can’t decide if it’s a side effect of the depression now or just being tired. Because I get a page or two in and BAM! the yawns start. And it’s not the book. I just picked up Val Kilmer’s autobiography- it’s really interesting. But… a page or two and I’m too tired to keep going. It sucks.

So I guess the whole point of this post is just to ask all of you- what are you reading, watching, enjoying? with the goal of maybe being inspired, finally, to get back into something.

Time for a ramble…

19 Jun

OK, So I said we were back before but apparently I fibbed. Here’s a ramble from me explaining and hoping you’re all still here hanging out with us. And maybe you wanna join the crew…

A Quick Rambling- HELD

14 Apr

The first thing I need to say is this- I am damn proud of you, Jill. So… this whole post may be a little biased because Ms. Jill Awbrey is my favorite daughter, friend, and the little sis I never had. Damn proud of you, kid.



Now that that’s out of the way, I hate spoilers Continue reading

I have to confess…

24 Mar

I have a confession. It isn’t going to be news if you follow us on Twitter but… I have an obsession with Tyler Hoechlin’s eyebrows.

They communicate. They express everything… I am desperate to learn their language and be one with the brows. Continue reading

Oh what a year it’s been! Surviving Coronapocalypse!

17 Mar

It’s been a year, right? 2020 into 2021, Coronapocolypse. Hopefully, we are finally heading out of this with people getting vaccinated and being willing to continue with precautions for the time being (I won’t comment on people who refuse to wear their masks, who choose to support businesses who refuse to follow the rules, or those who continue to think that Covid-19 is nothing- I am sure you can probably imagine my opinion). But I want to talk to you about what I have learned in the last year. Some of it is personal and some of it is stuff that I have chosen to work on in order to better myself. Continue reading

The curse of being trapped at home…

3 Mar

The problem with all these home shows and DIY programs is that it convinces you that you too can remodel a home. Convinces. I mean, if these every day folks can do it, so can I, right?

It happens right away, too. From the first episode you watch you start to think that you can update a space easy peasy. Continue reading

Too many trailers, too many teases

24 Feb

Today, I want to talk about why I never watch trailers and hate casting spoilers. Whenever a new movie or tv show starts teasing something upcoming, they release teasers and trailers. They run on TV and before movies. We all know this, right? Well… I hate them. Mostly.

I know. Unpopular opinion. But I have my reasons. Continue reading

Gaming as a non-gamer

17 Feb

Ok, first off… of the people who have written for NerdLush, I am probably the least one to be considered a gamer. Of any kind. I enjoy a good board game but haven’t played one in years because I lived too far from friends, my friends pull the “old and married” card, or… 2020. And while I own multiple game systems, I cannot play many games.
