Autumn TV nights

Three laps of my mile(ish) route today…

…and it’ll be the same again tomorrow. With less rain, I hope!

Now that the nights are properly ‘autumn dark’ (i.e. sunset at 7pm), I am in a TV-watching mood again. Not that Geth and I did anything in the evenings all summer except sit in the house with the TV on, but it feels ‘right’ again now that it’s blankets ‘n’ candles season. Tonight we are resuming our Star Trek marathon, which we last paused more than four years ago (in May 2016 according to my notes!). We started the marathon circa 2010 and it’s been off and on since then. There’s been a lot of Star Trek made since the ’60s, and rather inconveniently they’ve started making loads of it again in the last few years, meaning we will probably never be caught up completely. It’s good stuff though.

I also have a ‘highlights from past series’ Strictly show to catch up with sometime this week, having recorded it last weekend!

Another three laps (and some more work and TV-watching) tomorrow.

Star Trek DVDs
Looking forward to getting back to these DVDs! I just had a look on Amazon and the packaging style has changed sometime in the last half decade, so the Enterprise ones won’t look quite the same when we get round to buying those…

Today’s earworm playlist:

Midnight Oil – ‘Beds Are Burning’
Leo Sayer – ‘Moonlighting’
Tight Fit – ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’
The Smiths – ‘Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want’

And a couple of bonus tracks that Geth was humming earlier:

REM – ‘Bad Day’
Patrice Rushen – ‘Forget Me Nots’ (or rather the ‘black bin bags’ parody from Phoenix Nights)
