No astronomy report today. Besides rainy and cold all weekend, my telescope is in repair, and I’m nursing a sick cat. Spent the weekend in knots of worry and at the vet. If my cats aren’t happy, neither am I.
No major repair to the telescope. The base of it broke. I fixed it temporarily to use it Saturday before, but brought it home for the Husband Unit to fix more permanently. Of course, as I said, we were preoccupied with a sick darling this weekend.
Did you hear about Martian snow? http://news.yahoo.com/mars-
In sci-fi news, Falling Skies returns to TNT on Sunday nights. Season 2 started off with a bang. Noah Wylie returned from his time with the aliens. Cue Twilight Zone music … It gives me my alien fix. Yay aliens.
Since I was home all weekend, Husband Unit and I finished watching Torchwood IV. I love this show. I hope there will be a season 5. All’s I know is, one shouldn’t work with Jack and Gwen. I know some griped that the show was Americanized or something. Shrug. It still surprised me, which is what I love most about Torchwood.
About half way through season 1 of Game of Thrones, too. Makes me want to start reading book 2, but I have so many books ahead of it. Siiigh.
On someone else’s blog … can’t remember who … they recommended watching the documentary Dear Zachary on Netflix. I have to second that recommendation. It started out being about a man who was murdered, then became something else, at least twice during the film. It was surprising and gripping, and if you write about crime at all, I think you should see it. That said, have a box of tissues handy when viewing. If you’re not moved by the film, have your pulse checked. At any rate, I keep thinking about the story and the people in it.
Well, I’m back at the vet today. I hope to come out intact … have to get the IV thingy out of her leg. Anyway, still nursing my poor cat. I think if she hadn’t of been poked so much, she’d be much better than she is. Siiigh.
