In case you're wondering if:
a) I've all but given up writing "real" posts…
b) I'm obsessing over just a wee bit too much over Downton Abbey…
c) I don't get out enough…
Let me assure you:
a) I AM writing–
- I've got a total of 14 posts to write for the Bloom Book Club
- I'm continuing to publish for (in)courage, Deeper Family and Simple Mom
- I'm spending t i m e penning some deeper thoughts that require careful intention
- I'm trying to re-work my Parenting Series into an ebook (with added and revised content)
- I've got some double-nought secret stuff going on :).
b) I'm recovering (nicely and as expected) from knee surgery
c) So, no…I'm not getting out enough
These will be my last words (I think) on Downton Abbey til next season, and they're ones you'll want to pay attention to if you're a fan in mourning from last night's Season Finale:
a) There's a good reason they killed off [you know who and if you don't, I'm not telling], and we can't blame it on series creator Julian Fellowes; it was the actor's choice to leave the show (a fantastic interview that helped ease the pain of his departure).
b) If you quietly wondered if you're crazy having a Pavlovian response to the DA theme song? You are.
c) And this. Oh, my. A mash-up of Downton Abbey and One Direction's "You don't know you're beautiful." So much fun and I cannot imagine the tedium of finding and piecing together this video, but I'm OH so glad someone did! Enjoy!!
Last, this BRILLIANT Marshall Ramsey cartoon, with thanks to my friend Dawn for sharing it with me (feel free to Pin, Stumble, Facebook and/or Tweet this gem!!):
Hope you'll keep checking in…good things come to those who wait…!
I LOVE Downton Abby. Currently behind a season, but working to remedy that. Love the video!
Clever post, Robin! Thanks for sharing.
That video? Hilariously fun.
The cartoon. Best I’ve seen in 2 yrs.
p.s. thanks for the exit interview link..it eased the pain..not much..but some 😉
We all THOUGHT that after the closing scene went straight to fundraiser, but the Marshall Ramsey carton? PURE brilliance! So glad you enjoyed so many elements from this post; it was my goal to provide public service 😉 :).
Ha Ha! You did!! Vielen Dank!! Living in Munich, I’ve been watching on itunes, I missed the fundraiser. (strategically they should have done that about 1 min. BEFORE the end of the show I’m thinking)
The cartoon is THE BEST!
blessings as you recover!
Thanks, friend :).
Savor it! It’s such a short season it’s over entirely too fast!!
Oh, I think we all know who the clever ones are… 😉 :).
I can only imagine how long it took to piece that video together! Wow. I started watching the first season of that show because of Facebook friends. I’m not quite addicted…yet – they said I should keep watching.
Congrats on all your freelance work!
