On Friday (or maybe even Thursday), I felt like I was coming down with a cold. I felt run down and also, my face was breaking out. I blame it on the late night partying the weekend before and late nights of TV watching during the week. With no plans for the weekend ahead, I declared it, "my weekend of rest". But with my luck, it wasn't a good weekend to be at home, there was no good movies on CosmoTV, W Network, Diva or Peachtree. Anyway, Friday night, while hubby was out longboarding, I watched reruns of The Hills on ROD. Saturday, we did nothing but take naps all day long. It wasn't until the evening, Mike throws on a show that I was absolutely sure I wouldn't like...a show about a motorcycle gang. What girly girl in her right mind would want to watch a show of gangs and violence. Well, guess what guys....YOU ARE LOOKING AT HER!!!!
I had heard about the show before since I follow @JoelMadden on Twitter. He would always rave about Sons of Anarchy. I never paid any attention to it because my TV lineup was already full and we don't get FX Network in Canada. After watching episode 3 of season 1, I was hooked. I had no intentions of getting so involved in the show. I was planning to read my book while Mike watched. Next thing you know, it's 1:36 am and we just finished watching episodes 3-8.
The show follows the Teller-Morrow family and the Sons of Anarchy or SamCro (I thought when they were referring to Sam Crow, they were referring to an actual person. No, it stands for Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, Redwood Original Charter), who are situated in Charming, CA. For a more detailed description and season recaps, click here.
SoA is so out of the box for me but it's highly addicting. There's lots of character building, twisted plots, shocking moments and lots of violence. Last night, we started season 2 and ended with episode 4. Looks like we can already figure out what we will be doing tonight.
Somewhere between all the SoA watching, we managed to stop to let my dad come over to drop off a bookshelf he built for us. I know when he asked what colour I wanted the shelf, I said white but when Mike and I walked out of the lobby, we were shocked to see a lovely mint green bookshelf on the dolly. -- Oh dad...that's not white but it's okay, we still love the bookself --
That was my weekend. I didn't get anything accomplished. I was hoping to watch Step Up 3D, install MS Office on my laptop, work on updating my resume and organize my jewellry. This will all have to wait until next weekend when I also plan on packing for Jamaica.
