I'm turning into a Geek....or have I always been one?
This past weekend we went to Houston and attended a party thrown by Eric and Christine. Great fun was had by all...and Eric loaned me Cowboy Bebop, an anime series about a bounty hunter (aka "Cowboy") in the future who lives on a ship called the Bebop. Highly generalized description, I know....but I've only seen the first four episodes so far.

I never was an anime fan. I mean, I liked it all right, and when I was younger I loved Saber Rider and the Star Sherriffs, but never got into it as a young adult. DH, however, LOVES anime, and is always watching it from what he's TiVo'ed.

So, he gradually wore me down. Matt gave him the entire series of Full Metal Alchemist (subtitled, of course) on DivX and DH began watching it on his laptop in the bedroom at night. I held out for about one night before I succumbed, and from then on I was hooked. Night after night we watched episode after episode, and I was so sad when the series ended and have to wait for the movie.

I didn't think anything could top FMA, but I'm enjoying Bebop immensely. I can't believe I'm saying that.

When I get home I will immediately set Season Passes to Oprah, HGTV decorating shows, and Food Network shows.
