Over Christmas John and I watched Masters of None on Netflix and have now moved on to watch Aziz Ansari’s stand up specials and now I want to read his yeah, guess I found yet another person to be a fan of. At some point I’ll probably try to watch Parks and Recreation now although it probably will be a while before that happens. I’ve been re-watching Once Upon a Time because I wanted to get myself psyched up/interested enough to watch season 4.

I lost interest in OUAT when the Frozen characters came in because while I liked Frozen the movie I was annoyed by it being everywhere. Now that it’s a year later the hype feels like it’s starting to die down and I’m no longer annoyed so I figured I’d give it a shot. Currently I’m still on Season 3 in the re-watching and I can just say again how utterly pointless Greg and Tamara were? I had blissfully forgotten about that trainwreck plot until I hit season 2 & 3. Oy.

On the bright side I still love Regina. Whether she’s evil or trying to be good Lana Parrilla is just fun to watch. So is Robert Carlye of course but if I had to pick a favourite....well, Lana Parrilla wins.

We also watched The Hateful Eight and the latest Sherlock episode. Overall, I liked both. I mean, there were flaws in both but they both kept me interested the whole time through. I don’t want to say too much about either since I know some folks might not have seen one or the other yet.

I’m back at work today and the majority of my office discovered mouse droppings on their desks which was a *lovely* surprise. I was lucky and didn’t have any but cleaned off my desk anyway just in case. Yep, our library has mice. In fact, the whole campus does and I’ve even seen the odd rat around outside the buildings. I want to stress that because if rats were inside the building I'd be freaking the fuck out. This is just one more reason for the library to invest a staff cat/cats in my opinion. We already bring in therapy animals during exam period so.....sadly, no one’s taken up on my suggestion.

Parks and Recreation is great, but it took them about a season to really find their pace and style. The later seasons are absolutely fantastic, though :D Aziiiiiiz!!!!

Good luck with the Once rewatch. I found the Frozen stuff really obnoxious myself, but IIRC the second half of that season was pretty enjoyable. Plus, it had one of my all-time favourite episodes, so...

I rather like OUAT. Although for me the biggest draw was probably Sebastian Stan as the Mad Hatter. They really should have given him more screen time.

Oh yes, definitely watch Parks & Rec when you get the chance! Season 1 is not awesome, but it goes fast. Once you hit season 2, the real character development starts and it just doesn't stop! I love that show so much! <3

I hung in there through the Frozen people and they didn't irritate me quite as much as I thought they would. I think Regina is my favorite. The good guys tend to annoy me, but I dig the Queen! :D And Rumple <3

I really want to see the Hateful Eight but I haven't gotten the chance yet :/

Eww. Mouse poop. :/ That really stinks!

I liked Parks and Rec. Usually I don't like shows with that dry humor.

I usually do a big watch of OUAT when all the episodes are released on Hulu or Netflix LOL
