Five Fun Things: Week of May 10th

Here’s a list of Five Fun Things I’ve been enjoy­ing late­ly, in no sig­nif­i­cant order (oth­er than No. 1):

  1. Feel­ing our baby girl kick for the first time last Sun­day morn­ing. That was awesome.
  2. Super Paper Mario on the Wii – Not a very hard game, but loads of fun to play and very fun­ny, too.
  3. Lost – Last night’s episode was proof they haven’t ‘lost’ it. Pick­ing an end date means they’ll have a def­i­nite road map for the rest of the show to keep it great, unlike ear­li­er this year when it seemed to be flop­ping. (Watch it on ABC’s site) Heroes owes a lot to Lost, and has real­ly been build­ing up to a great sea­son finale. Both have been fill­ing the hole left in my heart when Sea­son 3 of BG ended.
  4. – All the recent news about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of los­ing Inter­net radio made me real­ize just how awe­some this site is.
  5. Freaks & Geeks from Net­flix. I wish I had caught this show when it was first aired, but I don’t think my watch­ing would have saved it for anoth­er season.

So what about any of you? Leave a com­ment or post it on your own site (be sure to ping me, track­back or just leave a link if you do!).

  1. i LOVE paper mario! unfor­tu­nate­ly, i won’t be able to play the super ver­sion until we get a wii. sniff.

  2. The young one kicks. That IS so awesome!

    On the TV note that you struck, SG‑1 is wind­ing done while it is still a good show, it has lost some of its lus­ter for me. BG has to be my favorite show; I real­ly like the expo­sure to the dark side of human­i­ty and a group of peo­ple that every so often is forced to put aside their dif­fer­ences and come togeth­er, at least for a few crit­cal moments. Lost and Heroes dri­ve me nuts. They are both good shows, but I always wish for a anoth­er 10 min­utes. And no I don’t think he is dead yet.
