Still no laundry!

I know, you're shocked and awed that I still haven't done my laundry.

But I did do 45 minutes on the elliptical, including five 30-second intervals at top speed.

Then I went home and finally, finally figured out how to clear and re-sync my gym MP3 player so I could get rid of those 3 or 4 songs that turned out to be terrible for the gym, or at least that I had grown so bored with I was ready to scream every time they came on. Which of course was all the time, since I didn't want them. But I think I have fixed that! I will find out next time I go to the gym and use that player.

Also, I read some things. I have many things to read. I must read them, preferably, in the next week. Which is also dress rehearsals for the Rossini.

For the weekend, I want to write another 500-1000 words or so, and also I have to change the lightbulbs in my bedroom which, because this is a nineteenth century building and my ceiling is really really high, requires me borrowing the giant ladder from my landlord. I got fancy new eco-bulbs at Home Despot last weekend that ought to last a really long time. Conveniently, this morning my halogen standing lamp went out, too. I need to write down what kind of bulb that takes and get a replacement, since sometimes I want more light in the winter.

I might also watch some Dr. Who this weekend. Am debating between "Inferno" (Evil Liz Shaw and Evil Brigadier! Green primate monsters!) and "The Chase" (Steven Taylor and his stuffed panda! Ian and Barbara racing all over London before they go to an expensive hotel and boink like bunnies!) I have never seen "The Chase" in its entirety, so that one might win.

Has anyone been watching the classic Who showings on the BBC or BBC America?

You know, we really could pick you up with your laundry and do it at my house. You could repay us by absorbing monkey energy. Oh wait, we already owe you a total of 12 years of that.

LOL, I think the number of years goes up exponentially when there are two of them present.

I feel like going to someone else's house to do laundry when there is a machine in my own building means I have FAILED. ...Though I might take you up on it next time I need to wash a quilt, since we don't have a "gentle" setting.

Uh-oh. Then we REALLY owe you.

1. The machine in your building is in the basement and you're on the zillionth floor with no elevator.

2. It requires many quarters.

3. Other people sometimes use the machines.

4. We can hold you hostage while your laundry is in our machines.

OH, I AM SO CUNNING.

See you at 5:05! Capogiro says they have Sea Salt flavor today. Geeklet mentioned wanting Burger Palace for dinner, if that's okay with you. We may outvote her, of course.

I think this is a brilliant solution. Oracne, DO IT. It is win-win for you both.

I love the sea salt. Ooh, I could have gelato AND a malted at the burger place....

Isn't it imteresting how some songs seem like they would be good for the gym, but turn out not to be? And some work during one stage of a workout, but not another? I need to rejigger my selection this weekend and add some tunes. Next week's treadmill walking will be for an hour, so I'm going to need entertainment.

It would be hard to choose between "Inferno" and "The Chase." Both are awesome. I guess it depends on whether you're in a dystopian mood?

I saw part of "The Aztecs" on BBC America last Sunday. It was great to see it again...

There's supposed to be an updated DVD version of Aztecs out soon if it isn't out already - has one of those random "lost eps" on it as well.

Amazon Prime actually has a lot of classic Who on demand.

The Chase is silly, like most Hartnell, but if you've seen Inferno enough times is probably diverting. The official Dr. Who theory of what happened to the Mary Celeste is...interesting.

Before last night I had only seen the Morton Dill bits (*wince*). It was...interesting. The wacky jazzy vortex music in particular.

I did not know BBCA was showing vintage Who. When is it on?

Looks like one episode per Doctor, in celebration of the 50th anniversary. I don't think it's a regular schedule.
