Vacation Incoming  
This week has been quite the week! We have been organizing and getting ready for our annual trip to warmer places. We are leaving tomorrow and will be back in a week and a half. Most of the trip will be spent with my parents so it'll be fairly relaxed and I'll be visiting the computer on our down time. Perhaps I'll even make a few posts. :)

A few bullet points:

- This week's Castle, the 100th episode, was just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. ♥ I mean it was so adorable I think I got some cavities, but cute adorableness is what I want from the show (along with murders - because what goes best with sweetness than death? *g*) so no complaints. I quite loved it!

- I REALLY want to see last nights Person of Interest and Elementary but I didn't have time last night and it doesn't look like I will tonight either. Also, I'm going to be behind on Doctor Who as well. Expect a pile of quick reviews when I get back and watch All The Things.

- We moved Rose into her BIG 75 gallon tank this week. She should have been out of the smaller tank a couple of months ago but Jay needed to make a platform so as to be able to move the tank as needed and then there was retrofitting. Let's note that many filters are OUTSIDE of the tank yet no one makes covers with cutouts for wiring and tubing. It's a good thing Jay has a fully equipped workshop or I don't know what we would have done! Cats and an unsealed turtle tank - not a good thing. Anyway, I took pictures but it looks like I'll post them when I get back. She does look happy! Lots of water and a big sunning area!

- All kinds of 50th anniversary Doctor Who rumors and reports coming out! I'm getting excited! Though it looks like Eccleston at least won't be in it. Too bad. I know he needs to make the best decision for himself but I can't help being disappointed that he couldn't see his way to even a small role. As for Tennant, the brown suit has been spotted so I'm thinking original flavor Ten! \o/

- Both Person of Interest and Elementary have been picked up for next season! We are still waiting on OUAT - I've heard unofficial good news but no announcement yet. If it's like last year we'll get it around the season finale.

Ooh, have a safe and fun trip!

I really enjoyed bot POI and Elementary. They were fun episodes and I was SO glad basketball wasn't on! And yay for new seasons!

Eep, poor Jay having to do all that extra work! Like you said, though, at least he had the equipment and ability! I'm glad Rose is loving her new digs. :)

Thank you! All good so far! :)

I'm definitely looking forward to watching both of them when I get back. (And seeing Clyde! I love Clyde.)

It was a bit stressful trying to get that done while also getting ready for vacation but it needed to be done and Rose is much happier.

I'm glad!

Hee, I love Clyde, too! Sherlock and Joan treat him so differently. And Bear made an appearance in POI, too!

I am so bummed that I missed Castle's 100the ep! Glad I have it on iTunes, but I haven't gotten it downloaded yet...

I hope you have had it downloaded by now! It was fun one.

Yay for POI getting another season! I don't get why they insist on dragging things out on other shows, though! Once better get renewed!

Hope you're having a great vacation!

I'm sure Once will be renewed. It's just that ABC doesn't make many announcements ahead.

Thanks! This is one of my favorite parts of the year. It's very relaxing visiting my parents.
