Post 3719 - Friday Night Musings

Hello, my lovelies.

I don't know what hit me Thursday. I got home from work and didn't eat any dinner. By 6:30, I went upstairs, "for a few minutes", to take a nap. I was down for the night.

Slept in this morning. Got up for a bit and returned to bed, not getting up until 10:30. I showered and cooked steak and eggs for us both. But by 1:30, I was dozing off again, so I napped until nearly 4:30.

Not sure what is wrong with me. A malaise. Laziness. I will have to figure it out.

Part of it may have to do with the abrupt cancellation of "Inner Space" on the Space Channel. It was on Wednesday night. Thursday morning, all three hosts: Ajay Fry, Morgan Hoffman, and Teddy Wilson, along with producers and so on, were marched into a meeting with HR and told their services were no longer required. Bell Media also cancelled Daily Planet over on the Discovery Channel. Two quality programs gone, just like that, with no farewell episodes to say goodbye to fans with.

This news is devastating to genre fans. "Inner Space" was the only Canadian outlet for fans of SF, comics, manga, horror, video games, and related content. It was must see viewing in my house. I even got Patricia into watching it with me several years ago. We are both really gonna miss the show. We are both disgusted with Bell Media over this decision.

It always comes down to money, doesn't it?

Tomorrow we plan a day trip, which I will tell you about tomorrow night. It means we have to get up early, so I think I will turn in. I may be able to find a few more hours of sleep within me.

See you tomorrow.
