Watching telly
Saturday 6th March 2021 11:51 am

I am terrible at watching telly. I tape a lot, think I'll get round to it, but somehow the evening's gone and I haven't got to the telly-watching bit. And then a few months ago I started a sleep CBT and one of the things I had to do was to relax for an hour and a half before I go to bed. And I wasn't allowed to read. So I made an effort to get through all the TV I had taped.

Technically speaking I'm not quite there. I have an episode of Cats Countdown, three-quarters of an episode of Hypothetical and a half an episode of The Last Leg on there. But now most of the telly has stopped for Easter (and, really, until September) it won't take me long to get through those (and two of them are from last week).

I want to say I don't know what to watch, but I have some stuff on catch up I'm working through, I want to re-watch Yes, (Prime) Minister because I'm not 100% certain I've seen it all. And a lot of The Bill on DVD. I won't run out.

Although at some point I need to get Disney+ because I haven't seen the last two Star Wars films yet. But that's only free for a week so I have to time that carefully for when I'm sure I have enough time in that week to watch both films. (Although if I wait long enough they'll be on TV eventually)

A lot of hours
Sunday 22nd March 2020 11:06 am

I am not short of things to do.

I started a second round of 100 days of code at the beginning of February and today is my 50th day. Since I now have more time to learn stuff, the list of stuff to learn has grown longer - I shrunk it when I started this round because it was too long. But the list of things I could learn is never-ending. But I found this week, when I overdid it, that I can't do more than an hour on weekdays.

I also have a lot of TV to watch. I added up the number of hours of TV I have on my PVR and it came to about 64 hours. If I watch an hour a day, it'll take me until late May to watch it all. And that doesn't include more stuff being on (not that there is much, since it's nearly Easter and most things stop until September).

I've also been rewatching all of Whose Line is it Anyway. I've seen all of series 7, 8 and 9. But I'm still not halfway through. I worked out that at one a day it'll take me until the end of May to get through them all. Except I'm not watching one a day, I'm watching one at lunchtime if I'm working from home. So it'll take longer than that to get through them all.

And I finally got round to writing down all the films that have come out in the last couple of years that I haven't got round to watching yet. So maybe I will at some point when I cam fit them in.
