No Voice Means No “Episode”

Hi Everyone!  My voice has been giving me issues all week.  So trying to record for longer than 10 minutes has been… problematic.  So, instead of leaving you hanging, I’m going to put up a video-less episode thread.  So, you’ll see the same categories as usual, and a bit of my notes I was planning on talking about this week.  Sorry to make you read through my bad shorthand.  But, it will be worth it!  I PROMISE!  So, here goes!

“Hello everyone! I’m Silver! It is Thursday the 28th. A quick thank you to everyone who’s checking out the podcast for the first time! I can be a bit scatterbrained, and it shows in my podcast from time to time. Just ask my family about the level of scatterbrained-ness… Lol. Thank you to everyone who’s come back! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really do appreciate you! How is everyone doing?? It’s been a shorter week, but I was still able to get stuff done! Shorter work week makes this SOOO much easier to do! So, enough of my bellyaching! On to the knitting!

Whatcha Watching, Silver?:

  1. NCIS – Finished catching up to the end of last season. I noticed that this season has already started, and I wanted to catch up.
  2. I tried watching Hercules. Got through 20 minutes, and decided I know why I stopped watching it the first time.
  3. Sped through the past episodes of The Dead Files
  4. Gilmore Girls – Season 4 and the start of 5.
  5. Footloose
  6. Podcasts. I’ve been watching through past episodes of the Geeky Girls Knit Podcast as well.  I’m a bit behind right now (as in, only on Episode 14 of 200+) but I REALLY want to catch up sooner rather than later!
