Subject:Help! Can't Keep Up!
Time:11:20 pm
I'm having great trouble keeping up with things at the moment, both here and in RL. But I'm not complaining, just explaining, because it's really for good reasons in both cases. In RL we have the decorators in - the mess at the moment is a nightmare but I'm really looking forward to when it's done and I can start buying those nice little extras to finish it off! Trouble is, it's curtailing my afternoon online time but it should be finished by the end of the week.

That is part of the reason I'm having trouble keeping up with things online but it's even more because Elijah is so very active and busy at the moment and all the goodies are coming so fast that it's quite a challenge to keep track of everything. I just have to download every single vid, every pic, etc:) It also occurred to me that I rarely seem to have time to just sit back and watch/enjoy all the things I've downloaded so I need to earmark some time just for that purpose.

Sadly, because of all this frantic online activity, I have to confess I've missed a birthday. So, very belated birthday wish to ismenin whose birthday was on 27 June. I know that, sadly, you had to spend it in hospital but I do hope you'll be back home very soon:)

I'm really, really loving 'Wilfred'. I think Elijah is just perfect as Ryan, and Jason & Fiona are brilliant too. Yes, some of the crude humour is rather over the top, but on the whole I think it's really well-written and so hilarious. And I'm thrilled that it's been so well-received.

I loved seeing Elijah on 'Fallon' and 'Conan' - he's looking so good and so happy right now. I've grown to quite like the new hairstyle even though I'll always prefer it slightly longer and on his forehead, but I can understand him wanting to try new styles and this one does have a certain charm. He's looking slightly tanned too - very nice:) And very soon he'll be over here with us, possibly in connection with work on 'The Hobbit'. A lovely thought.

Finally, to all my US friends, hope you have a very happy 4th July:)

take your time, enjoy your RL, and everything will balance out, me dear! Want to thank you for all your work with "Journey" - beautiful stuff. And, yes, dear Elijah is looking great - far as I can tell, he came home from Billy's wedding/Ireland vacation with Dom with a smile on his face and a bounce in his step and he's still going strong six months later....

Many thanks - glad to know you're enjoying 'Journey'.

Hmmm, I must take another look at those wedding pics:)

it's been really hard keeping up with elijah. trying to post all the interviews from radio, video and print has been challenging. i pretty much gave up after the first week. :P but it's been fun. like the old times again. it's a relief to read so many good things about wilfred. it's my kind of humor. ;)

so, what are you having remodeled in your home? i know the kind of mess that goes along with remodeling, but it'll be SO worth it once it's all finished. will there be before and after photos?

i hope your holiday was a good one!

>>but it's been fun. like the old times again.<<

Exactly!! I can't remember having such a job to keep up since the height of LOTR. (Omg! Your icon - he just smiled:D) I'm loving all the positive reviews. As for the crudity, I know some people have been a bit shocked but it really doesn't bother me, I find most of it quite hilarious;-)

We're having the lounge/dining room completely redecorated at the moment (repainted/repapered/coving)and this will be followed by recarpeting and some furniture is to be replaced. It really needs updating but it's the worst area for upheaval. Before & after pics? Possibly - I'm a bit nervous about the 'before' - but we'll see:)

me neither. i can hardly complain when at times i get it in me to shoot off my potty mouth. :P

oh, a new hangout/relax area? sounds really nice. i hope all goes well and you're back to living like you used to... only more comfortable. doesn't really matter about the before because it will be so much better. besides, i think we all have those "before" rooms. ;-)

OMG your icon is magical! A bit like the moving picture newspapers in H.P.

What are you having done? It's always great to have improvements - once they are finished!

You're so right Mechtild - I have to keep focussing on how good it will be once this is finished!! At the moment we're having the worst possible place done when it comes to upheaval - the lounge/dining room. It's quite a small house so it's a problem to know where to put things!

Good luck with the redecoration!

I know just what you mean! You must be so incredibly busy, but I hope your decorating will be finished soon!

I've had to be a bit selective and watch the videos of interviews, but I just haven't had time to listen to all the radio ones, I'm afraid.

I must confess too I haven't watched the episodes of Wilfred online because of lack of time and also because I don't like watching on the computer monitor. I'm waiting until it comes on the much bigger TV screen.

Love the thought of Elijah being over here :-)

The lounge/dining room should be finished this week. Then we need to get it carpeted/curtained. Next on the list is hall/stairs/landing.

I try to download everything I come across but I fear I may have missed a few this time!!

Every time Elijah pops up in NY I think he must be on his way here - then he goes back to LA! Ah well, he did say July so it must be soon:)

Glad you like Wilfred. I don't always like crude humour either - I suppose it depends how it's done, if it's meant to be nasty and offensive then I find it a real turn-off, but as you say, it's one of the aspects of Wilfred's character and I find that really hilarious:)
