I thought of maybe doing something more structured, like the weekly reading posts, but I don't always have things to say about every new episode of stuff that I watch, so instead I'll just do a big dump of stuff I've watched lately (where by "lately", I mean in the past several months, I guess). I tend to mention stuff in passing occasionally, but I thought maybe a more detailed post might be fun (I really enjoyed [personal profile] thingswithwings's giant TV report she did a while back).

Orange Is the New Black
Dramedy about life in a women's prison )

Call the Midwife
Midwives in 1950s London )

Pretty sure everyone knows what this one is about )

The Fosters
Teen/family drama about an interracial lesbian couple and their kids )

Poor family struggles to get by while dealing with drunken deadbeat dad )

Whew! That was a lot of writing! I actually have more shows I wanted to talk about, but they are all anime, so I will save that for another post!

1. Wednesdays are not usually a day when I get a lot done at work because I have to change the signs for the new week's sale, which takes about half of my day including printing and cutting up the signs, etc. But I did manage to tackle a bit of the backlog.

2. I'm so glad to have my favorite cashier back fulltime! He was down to working just 12 hours a week for a couple months due to some family stuff, but now he's back. Not only do I get along with him really well and just like having him around in general, he's always willing to help me out with stuff if he has some free time.

Not only has my inbox been piling up with stuff, but the stuff I'm done with and need to file has been piling up, too, because there's no room in the filing cabinet. >_< So I asked him yesterday if he could take out all the invoices from January to May and box them up and he did and now I can actually file stuff!

3. I finally finished watching Hannibal yesterday! Overall I really enjoyed it. I was totally spoiled for a lot of stuff, because early on I was on the fence about continuing watching it (the first episode really didn't impress me that much) so I read a lot of discussion for future episodes, including the finale. I still don't understand how nobody suspects Hannibal, though, with his creepy face and creepy demeanor. Anyway, I'm very much looking forward to season two.

4. I started watching Dangan Ronpa and am enjoying it, though not wowed as of yet. Despite seeing tons of talk about it on my tumblr flist and on ffa, I have managed to remain completely unspoiled for it and am going to try and stay that way, since at least so far it doesn't really have anything else going for it other than the mystery.

5. Tonight's Futurama was great, especially the Scooby Doo parody.
