Oh, I could probably give you a run for your money! I never really got into Dollhouse, but the rest - most definitely!

And now, it's high time I went to bed - so goodnight!

I am still called a freshman. I can only take three classes per year because of my duties to DA. It will take a long time to earn my degree but I shall do this!

Princess Fiona, there may become a time when certain things will need attending, but DA has in place funds for in home nursing if she needs this. If I need to put away school for a time to take care of her I shall. Mamma and Papa know of this also.

Your friend,
~Cat

Lets just say it's slowing down regardless
I'm slowing down but I'm not going to lay blame on neither kids going to school (that ship has sailed) nor the changing seasons. The older I get the more I get like a wind-up toy running out of spring power.

I hope I have explained this well? I am attempting to let you know of my life.

Your friend,
~Cat
Cat, you are remarkably grown-up and mature for your young age. So many young people feel that the adults in their lives owe them for their entire lives. You seem to have the right respect for those before you who did so much to help you become a strong, respectful and kind person. My wish for you is that you find friends in your area that share your sensible outlook on life.

I saw the trailer just before my television died on me. When they got to the bit about finding words to fit "S.H.I.E.L.D" I began to think it might be silly rather than smart.

Jos Wheedon - the buffy/angel man? I have to admit to a secret Buffy and Angel habit. Was terribly disappointed when I saw the actor who played Angel in a police thing a while back. Not right at all.

And I've never even heard of this show you guys are talking about.
But I did receive my notice from Amazon a week ago saying I could buy all the episodes of this season's Downton Abbey as soon as we here in the US show the first one in January..

Yes, Joss Whedon the Magnificent.

David Boreanez (Angel) performed admirably in the show Bones. Sarah Michelle Geller (Buffy) is now in a sitcom called The Crazy Ones, it gets at least one more viewing out of respect for Robin Williams and the hopes it will be better.

The voice of someone with itchy fingers...

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD is a winner. Thursday nights on ABC. It's a sequel of the movie Avengers, with Thor, Ironman, The Hulk, etc. My kind of show!
