I appear to be mostly over my illness, aside from a lingering cough and a bit of a dicky tummy. I slept a _lot_ over the weekend, and I feel a lot better for it. I'm going to try keeping that up by getting an early night tonight. Who knows, if I can keep the momentum up, maybe I can get into a better sleep pattern.

Speaking of keeping momentum up, it's interesting that I got ill pretty much immediately after I started exercising. This is an established pattern for me, it seems -- try to get back into exercise, fall ill, forget about it. This time I'm not forgetting about it. I've spent some time on the exercise bike tonight, and I'm going to keep that up.

With that in mind, I've re-prioritised my LoveFilm queue, setting up a stack of truly excellent episodic entertainment ready to come through my door and keep me company on the exercise bike. This ranges from Airwolf to MacGyver, rounded off with season one of The Equalizer. If I'm going to watch trashy TV, I'm going to watch it on my terms (which mostly means that I'll happily pay not to have any bloody advert breaks.) Also queued are Black Books and Flight of the Conchords, just in case my brain actually might need engaging at some point :)

And that's about it for my update. I can feel the Night Nurse kicking in (it's not an addiction, honestly, it's just a shame not to finish the bottle) so it's off to bed for me...

While I remember quite enjoying it at the time, it's not one of those ones I remember with full-on childhood fondness. I'm going for full-on nostalgia, and I remember far more of Airwolf, MacGyver and The Equalizer.

So, you don't think you'll fall off the exercise bike, laughing your ass off at how bad the 80s shows seem now ?

I used to love Airwolf, Knight Rider, Streethawk, Automan etc., but if I ever see them now ... *cringe*.

Re: Oooh, 80s Flashbacks

Oh, it's possible. But enough nostalgia can gloss over a lot of badness. It'll be interesting to see how they do against my all-time-favourite childhood show, Blake's 7, because I've been watching chunks of that pretty much every year since I was a kid, so it's aged in a very different way...
