Treats For Me

i'm not immune to treats. I love it when my husband leaves his change on my dresser and it has lots of quarters. For some reason it mades me laugh to drop quarters in my piggy-bank. Don't know why. Don't really care. Just like it, and like the fact he humors me.

I like treats in the form of small bunches of flowers. With dirt blobs still attached to the roots. Presented by small determined children who just KNOW I will appreciate that flower. And they're right. I do. Even if its a plant formerly known as a weed. I'm easy that way.

I've just discovered a NEW treat, and a treat coming out in October ...

Robin Of Sherwood. The old British television series is out in Set One, and Set Two is coming out in October. I really liked the series, but had no idea what it was called. Of course, when I watched it years ago, it was in the middle of the night. The first year we were married, we lived in Florida while my husband worked 911 for a year to get in-state-residency before going to UF. They rotated shifts so that during the course of a year, you'd spend four months on each shift. Our apartment was really close to the police-station, so when he was working nights he'd come home for lunch sometimes. His "lunch" was about 2:00am. I seem to remember napping until about 1:00am. I think Robin of Sherwood came on at 1:00am. I'd get his "lunch" ready, veg on the couch watching "Robin", talk to him while he ate, get tucked in for a few more hours sleep. It wasn't bad, all things considered.

Anyway, I did like the series. REALLY liked the series. Liked it VERY VERY VERY much. (It had a Clannod soundtrack, back before most people in the States had ever heard of them) (Don't send me hate mail if I spelled Clannod wrong) It may be my favorite television/movie of all time. (Its a good example of why I'm over-the-top careful of what my children read/watch. My parents had no clue when I was reading Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising series, except that it was educational and award-winning!)(And, yes, its an excellent series but raises philosophical and religious questions about the nature of good and evil better left alone for nine year olds)

Back to my treat: If someone who loves me (and lives with me) would like to get me a really FABULOUS CHRISTMAS GIFT, those DVD's would be it! Not cheap, but ever so FABULOUS. I'm just saying.

Oooh, I have never heard of this series! I'm sure it won't surprise you (being that we are twins) to know that dh and I love a lot of BBC shows. I'll have to check it out.

I have given up on renting things around here, I'm going back to Netflix. I want the old movies, the old shows.

Lol! My husband pointed out "Sweetie, just put it on the list of stuff from Blockbuster.com" (which is just like Netflix!)

I still don't know if they have it, but maybe they do! Then I wouldn't even have to wait for Christmas!
