Seasonal Greetings  

Hi folks! Reports of my demise have been blah de blah :)

Seasons Greetings to you all, hope that whichever festival of light in the dark you celebrate that you had a great one.

So to the good: I had five whole days off, which I know isn't a lot, but I got used to only getting Christmas Day off so this was a real luxury! I got the new Dresden book and I am loving it, as always. MILD NON-PLOT SPOILER Just when I think I can't love Harry or Jim Butcher more he goes and quotes Pratchett :)

Santa also delivered unto me the Firefly A Celebration book, which is the anniversary edition of all three Firefly Companion books. And it is shiny :)

Doctor Who was great, I really enjoyed the new Companion. I have a few niggles but I also have faith that Moffat will see it right eventually.

Downton Abbey has annoyed me. The Christmas special was wonderous until the very end when Mr Fellowes wrote something so cliched and hackneyed that he's actually spoiled the entire series for me. But maybe that's just me.

The Hobbit was made of all kinds of win, can't wait until next year for part 2, and really hope I get to see it in the cinema again.

So that's it from me, hope you all have lovely New Year. 2012 has been a bit rubbish for a lot of us, so he's hoping to a better 2013 xxx

Not just you. I was furious, and yes, Nin said she may never watch again. It was last thing we watched Xmas night, since last year's had been so lovely, we thought it would be a nice cap to the holiday. Boy, were we wrong.
She went that-a-way...jinxed_wood on December 29th, 2012 07:00 pm (UTC)
Happy New Year, m'dear! I'd make a cheeky comment about being absent without leave but I've been just as bad (I haven't posted on my LJ since November and even that was a fly-by, BAD jinxed)

I liked the new companion on Doctor Who, here's hoping that when they say 'coming soon', they doen't actually mean August :-P

And I've about 50 pages to go in the new Dresden book (I've been eeking it out, not wanting it to end!).

Oooh, and that Firely A Celebration book sounds awesome. I'll have to check it out!

I finally got Ghost Story for Christmas and am halfway through so am behind you in the Dresden stakes. Currently halfway through my 6 nights on and wondering what sort of hell will be waiting on LJ when I finally get the time to read it!

Happy New Year, good to see you survived the Apocralypse...

Wish a happy new year to you too! :D

also, I *loved* the Hobbit, even though it was a tad too long. The dwarves! The dwarves! And oh, Lord Elrond, how I had missed you!
