Vacation week four

I still feel like I'm just on vacation. Today, as I begin my fourth week of retirement, I officially exceed my previous record for most consecutive days off work since 1989.

I was doing the night-owl thing to an unhealthy degree the first week or two, but that's wearing off, and today I actually got up a little before 9:00 a.m. That seems a decent hour for getting out of bed in the morning, don't you think? Civilized.

Everyone who recommended taking plenty of time before imposing a new structure on myself: you were so right. Thank you.

And as to how I'm spending my time? roxymissrose Someone whose name shall be crossed out in a transparent attempt to point blamey, blamey fingers, mentioned re-watching "All Hell Breaks Loose" (the last two episodes of Supernatural Season 2) and was all OMG it's still so powerful and amazing, so I was going to Netflix it and then I thought what the hey I'll just watch all of S2, and now...

...Now I'm having a heart attack all over again watching the Impala get smashed into by a semi, and Sam is yelling "DEAN!!!" and the helicopters are coming, and I'm remembering how absolutely great this show was and why I've been such a fan all these years.

(And wow, Jensen doesn't age.)

The S2 opener is THE BEST. GAH. So many feelings on that one.

And no, Jensen does NOT age. Either working on SPN got him the inside track to making some kind of deal with a real devil or life is truly unfair, because wow. That man. Ahem.

I suspect a crossroads deal.

Gosh, he's gorgeous. I'm really enjoying this rewatch (got through EIGHT EPS yesterday OMG) and reliving Show's glory days.

I totally approve of an SPN rewatch in retirement! What a great idea! (Oh, boys!)

I'm having a blast. Binge-watching shows on Netflix is the only real use I've ever found for my misbegotten 2.5-year-old tablet, and I'm getting my money's worth now.

SPN's early seasons hold up remarkably well. I'd forgotten how much I remembered--you know, anticipating favorite scenes and great lines and beautiful shots, and thinking, "Oh, I remember this! This is the one where..."

Sigh. There's nothing like a favorite fandom show, is there?

Wow, you got through S5? I'm not sure I'll make it that far, especially knowing how crazy the show went after Kripke left.

Sorry to be obtuse: explain me how come your icon is fandoms collide? Is it a reference to Gilmore Girls?

I just watched "Night Shifters". That's the "bottle episode" in Season 2 where Sam and Dean get holed up in a bank with Ronald Resnick and a shapeshifter. Damn. It was good throughout, carrying the long arc of Dean's criminal status and the rising tensions between Sam and Dean...

...But the ending, with Agent Henrickson appearing, and the bass-drum heartbeat of Styx's "Renegade" playing and the boys escaping in SWAT gear, and the final line "We are so screwed"--that was the moment I fell completely in love with this show.

It was fun to re-live it.
