Things I've been into apart from Comic-Con

Hey guys! Enough about this Comic-Con thing! Let's talk about other stuff.

1. Misfits

A British program(me) about 5 juvenile delinquents who get caught in some crazy storm and end up with super powers. Don't be fooled by the first episode, the characters become likeable. It's very gritty, so if you're not into bad language, sex, and some violence, that's too bad, because you're missing out. It's also hilarious, moving, and strangely compelling. It blows Heroes right out of the water. And did I mention that it's British?

The first series and a half are available on hulu plus.

2. Mario Badescu products - the best skincare line I have ever used. I have mentioned their drying mask in the past.
I wish I hadn't just stocked up because they are on sale today on Gilt. Let me know if you need an invite.

3. A giveaway of one of my prints on Campfire Chic

4. The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, which we visited for the first time with Mike's parents. Who knew that such a great zoo was in The Springs. It was beautiful, and they are building a whole new "Africa" enclosure for the elephants and lions. They are also a breeding zoo for giraffes so they have a ton of extremely friendly ones. My only complaint was a distinct lack of turtles and lizards and snakes. I love turtles and lizards and snakes.

5. This "Troll Family" who had fun in their son/brother/grandson's room when he left for camp and forbid them from going in.


  1. I have been seeing commercials for Misfits on Hulu (the types that start off by saying, "if you liked this show, you might also like...") and your short review closed the deal — I'm definitely checking it out!

  2. I couldn't stop laughing at the things they did to that kid's room! Some of them were simply brilliant. The "Open Mic Nite" was probably my favorite.

    I also have to rant about SyFy a little here. Why is it that complete seasons of shows like Misfits are up on Hulu, but "Warehouse 13" only as 2 from the current season, no new ones until September, and no more than 5 at a time? DAMN YOU SYFY, WHY DO YOU MAKE IT SO HARD TO WATCH YOUR SHOWS!!!!

  3. @Jenny - Yay! A convert. I'm addicted to the show. Remember to push past the first episode. Don't worry, you'll end up liking Nathan.

    @Mike - I love it, too. I want to pull that prank on someone.

    Syfy is lame. They also cancelled Eureka so they are dead to me at the moment.

  4. Good stuff as always. Misfits is so excellent—I can't wait until it comes back in November. :)

  5. @Mandy - I knew you would like that show. I figured you were already watching it. :-)

  6. Watching the latest Misfits as I read your post. Love this show. It doesn't take itself too seriously.

  7. Bryce - I know, right? It's like a heroes-type show, but if the characters weren't all serious and depressing all the time.


Comment nicely and with tolerance or be deleted!
