Obsessions and Resolutions

Right, well, my running is going nowhere fast. It's looking more and more like I'm going to be walking this 7k in May! Hopefully I'll be able to get back at it soon though. I haven't had much of a chance lately cos I've been getting more hours at work, which on the one hand means more money (yay) but also means less free time (boo). And rather than allocate what little free time I have to sensible, healthy things like exercise, I'm instead choosing to spend it all on The Mentalist.

Ah, yes, The Mentalist. My newest obsession. Some people are able to just watch a show and enjoy it for what it is, but not me. Oh no. I have to latch on to my favourite ship (Lisbon/Jane naturally) and just go to town reading as much fic as I can about the two of them! It's a different situation to my usual obsessions though cos this time the show is actually finished, which means I've got to be careful about what I read so as not to spoil myself. I'm quite amazed at how little I know about what happens and I hope to keep it that way. (While there is one major event that I do know about, I have no idea of the details of how it gets to that point or even anything more specific than the fact that it happens.) I'm about halfway through season two now, so I've still got a bit of a way to go!

As for my other New Year's Resolutions, the photography is coming along. I'm managing to take a photo a day and haven't yet run out of ideas. I have a new batch that I need to upload to Flickr and post here at some point soon. Of course I also still have to finish my Canada posts, cos I still have a couple of those left. I should probably do that before my memory fades and I can't remember what the photos are of, but as we all know I am the Queen of Procrastination so it may be a while.

(And the less said about my third Resolution, the better. I've managed to finish one book so far and am not making much progress on any of the others!)
