Finally, got some Get Glue stickers in the mail!

Warning… complete marshmallow fluff of a post today. LOL.

Check-In LegendThose folks at Get Glue must be completely overwhelmed with sticker requests, the last batch I requested and received before today was from back in May. I just requested my most recent batch of 20 a couple of days ago, and with those, they officially owed me 80 of them. With today’s mailing, they’re down to 60, ie: 3 requests of 20 each.

But to give you an idea of how far behind they are, the ones I got in today were ones that were awarded from back in June! Got a couple of Doctor Who, Men of a Certain Age (which has now already been canceled, oh well), all the folks on America’s Got Talent, and HEH! Even got one of US Marshall: Marshall Mann (the coolest character name on TV, I think) from In Plain Sight. But most telling that it’s taking awhile to ship things out? Finally got the one for the Belmont Stakes race. I had to look that one up to see how long ago that actually ran. June 11th, I think. And the ones for Falling Skies and Expedition Impossible that say “Coming Soon” and both shows are already over for the season. LOL.

Oh well, they’re just stickers, not the end of the world if they don’t come in. BUT I WANT MY TORCHWOOD MIRACLE DAY STICKERS! Worked HARD to get those, lol. 😎

 

 

New Doctor Who aired last night!

Good thing I had my DVR set for it; while I’D planned to watch it, Hurricane Irene had other plans. Irene was all but past Raleigh by Saturday night, but after very little sleep the night before, and feeling very discombobulated by the constant “power is on, power is off, power is on, power is off” situation that we had Saturday afternoon (took 45 minutes for our cable box/DVR to reboot; no sooner than it would try to restart, before it could finish, the power would go out again. Then come back on, then go out, then come on, etc. and so forth. For 45 minutes. Frustrating.) DW Midseason Premiere

Anyhoo, after the power finally came back on to stay last night, finally managed to finish watching Haven (great show on SyFy, if you’ve never seen it), then Episode 8 of Torchwood Miracle Day (Yeah, Jack, blame the ‘stache in that pic on it being ‘The Seventies’! LOL Loved that Ianto got a mention too), squeezed in that last episode of Wilfred from Thursday, then it was time for the start of the new season of Doctor Who. Yay!

Except that with all the weather excitement over the weekend, I dozed off on the couch before I got to the first commercial break (although DID wake up JUST long enough to catch Rory and Amy’s Motion Comic in enough time to check into it on Get Glue and earn yet another sticker that I’m sure I’ll never have sent to me. I’m sure watching me fumble with the app on my phone to check in while I was still half asleep was probably hilarious, lol). Saw bits and pieces during the rest of the night, but not enough that anything made a whole lot of sense. So in retrospect, setting the DVR to record what I was supposedly watching was a really good idea.

(Although a note for anyone else who missed the new Who due to Irene or any other reason, I see that BBCA is repeating both that and the Companion special that followed on Monday night. Yay.)

In the mean time, for anyone who missed the short animated Motion Comic that aired before the first commercial break, I uploaded it for a friend and thought I’d post it here too.

2 more additions to the Torchwood page

Thought I’d sneak in a few more things on the page before the b/f gets here for the weekend and I didn’t have time later.

Just added the 2nd BBC trailer to the page, as well as the video of the screen capture that I did of that funky little immortal stick figure from the Starz Community page that DOESN’T die in very funny ways. Love when he gets hit by the car and hobbles back into the frame, makes me think of that old “walk this way” joke. 😀

Anyway, the page is here, check it out.

And have a great July 4 holiday weekend, those who are celebrating that! :)
