Is everybody jolly out there?  Well, if not, I’m here to give you some ideas how to spend your time off from work.

  1. Go to a movie.  Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the big one out there that you may have trouble getting tickets to.  Order them online if necessary.  I haven’t had time to check this one out yet, but I probably will in the next few days.  Chris Pratt’s Passengers is also out, but with a big ol’ Rotten Tomatoes splat (31% – yikes!) I’m not sure if I’ll put out the coin for that one or just wait for it to show up for rent online.  If anybody’s seen it feel free to let me know how it is by posting a comment.
  2. Watch Sherlock series 4.  This will premiere on the BBC and PBS on January 1 with the next two episodes on subsequent Sundays.  The last episode, The Final Problem, will also be shown in certain theaters.  See my previous post for more info.
  3. Do some charitable work and/or donate to your favorite cause.
  4. Catch up on Lethal Weapon.  Episodes are available for free online.
  5. Play with the furkids.  You got the felines and canines and any other animals in your lives presents, right?  Mine are getting a some-assembly-required new cat tree.  Cross your fingers I get this one put together before I have to go back to work.  I have 10 days.
  6. Rewatch all the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films.  That’ll take you a while.  Be sure to get up and stretch once in a while.
  7. Write down your New Year’s Resolutions.  Then put them in an envelope, tear them in half, and throw them away.  Seriously, who needs the pressure?
  8. Watch all the old Sherlock Holmes films with Basil Rathbone.  There were 14 of them.  Personally I’d skip the ones where they’re chasing Nazis (outside of the first two they were all in what was then present day.  No, BBC’s Sherlock wasn’t the first to do that).
  9. Listen to all 26 episodes of BBC radio’s Cabin Pressure.  With Benedict Cumberbatch and a crew of very funny people (including Anthony Head in some later episodes), it’s my go-to comedy series when I need a laugh.  You can order the CD’s or an Audible version on Amazon.

Everyone have a very happy whatever-you’re-celebrating, and hug the furkids for me!

Chris Pratt (@prattprattpratt), a.k.a. Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star Lord, and Chris Evans (@chrisevans), a.k.a. Captain America, have been doing some trash talkin’ on Twitter as their teams will be settling their bet in the Super Bowl on February 1st.  IT’S ON.

kittenbowl2-HallmarkChannelYours truly, however, being not particularly interested in football, will check in occasionally, but will also be flipping to Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl (with the kitten half-time show), or The Hallmark Channel’s Kitten Bowl IIBring it, kittehs!

If you can stay awake long enough, don’t forget The Blacklist will return from its hiatus directly after the game, then it moves to its permanent spot on Thursday nights.

Tatiana Maslany, who plays several roles as clones in BBC America’s Orphan Black, is said to be on the short list for a lead role in a Star Wars spin-off movie.  Maslany has been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award, which will be presented this Sunday.

Tomorrow, 1/21, Guardians director James Gunn will be live on Facebook.com/JGunn at 10 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. Pacific for a Q&A.  He will also do a live GOTG commentary, so if you have a copy of the film you can start that at the same time he does and talk about the scenes as you go.  Also appearing will be some “special guests,” no word on who that includes.
