Now whatever will I do with my time?

Monday, April 14, 2014 11:00 am

Here’s a little peek behind the scenes at both IMAO and at me.

You may nor realize this, but most of the posts here are written ahead of time and scheduled to appear at a certain time. None of us log in, write up a little gem of wisdom (or whatever) and sit, watching the second hand on the clock approach the 12, waiting to press Publish. And, there’s no limit to how far ahead we can write and schedule a post. That can sometimes cause little oddities or necessitate edits. Such as…

Well, here’s where we get to the peek at me. I binge-watch TV. Or, to sound like I’m not addicted, I hold TV marathons, sometimes lasting days. Or weeks.

Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration. Maybe. You see, I’ve been posting my watching of the classic Doctor Who episodes on Sundays. One week per season. And, here’s the thing: I’m done. Finished. Watched ‘em all. All 26 seasons. That means the last season’s wrap up is written and scheduled for 22 June. It also means I had to edit an entry after one of the recurring characters died recently, since she was also known outside the Doctor Who universe. Kate O’Mara played The Rani, as well as many other roles over the years.

Now, with that behind us, that brings me up to my question.

Whatever will I do with my time?

I sat down last night, turned on the TV, and had nothing to watch. An empty Hulu queue. Nothing unwatched in iTunes. Nothing in my Amazon library. No unwatched DVDs.

I’m not saying I need to watch TV. I’d read a book, but Amazon says Frank’s new book (which I’ve pre-ordered) won’t deliver until November. I don’t know what to do. For the first time in months, there’s not a bunch of Doctor Who episodes awaiting me watching them

What should I do with all this free time?
