Waylaid by Downton Abbey #wabwm

The work I got on World Clinic yesterday, all 2487 words of it :mrgreen:, will have to suffice for today as well.

The third series of Downton Abbey came out yesterday. Matt and I had discovered the show right after the new year, and had already been through the first two series (twice) since then. So yesterday after I finished work, we ran some necessary errands, then went to Best Buy and picked up Series 3.

And sat up ALL night, finishing one episode, me saying “Next,” Matt saying “You sure?” and us going to the next until he finally stopped asking and we just watched the whole thing. We finished at 5 AM.

Considering that I’d gotten up with the alarm at 6 AM the day before that made for a long day. So I decided to turn the alarm off (me getting into bed at 5:30, and it set to go off at 6). Slept until I woke up at 11 AM, starting work at noon.

I’ll go straight into site work and getting 7-Day Crash Revision Workshop finished.

Goal today? Get to bed early tonight so I can get words tomorrow.

But it was worth it.

    I couldn’t even tell you why I even enjoyed the show so much–it’s so far away from my interests genre-wise.

    Nearest reason I can think of is a quote I heard a long time ago about good storytelling carrying across all genres… 🙂

    Had stumbled across it on a bored lark and figured I’d be switching to something else inside of 10 minutes.

    Ha ha.

    We found Downton at the start of the second season, caught up during reruns. I plan my week around Sunday night to see the next installment.

    TV really gets in the way of my writing. Have to turn it off more often. Luckily I write mostly in the morning Nd the tv is not on yet.

    Damn, I’d heard it was a good show, but I didn’t realize it was THAT good! I’ll have to watch it 🙂

      Me too!!!

      This is why I don’t watch much tv – fear of addiction! LOL.
