Scrapbooking: A Justified Excuse

Hi, hi.

Round these parts Wednesdays are Justified days.

In fact, it's just as accurate to say that my life has become a Justified life ... because ...

Ever since I first clapped eyes on it - when we watched the entire first season over Easter weekend - I don't think I've gone a week without watching at least one episode.
After watching Season 1 ... twice ... on demand, we bought the Season 2 box set ... and watched that ... twice ... then Season 3 began on TV ... so we watched that too. Then I had to introduce my Mam and sister to it as we meet up each Wednesday night ...which is when Season 3 was airing ... and I couldn't possibly have missed it!!

Then they caught the bug.

So, when Season 3 finished ... they wanted to know what had happened in the previous 2 series ... so now, every Wednesday night we watch between 1 and 3 episodes of Seasons 1 & 2 ... and I'm keeping a close eye on the release date for the Season 3 box set.

Basically, to cut a long story short ... for the last 5 months I've been living part time in Kentucky!
This is not normal behaviour. Not for me. I really don't have an obsessive or addictive nature.

Not since I was a teenager, when I was slightly addicted to Bros ... Bill + Ted and then Little Angels and Guns N Roses ... have I ever followed anything this avidly.

So either there's something special about the show ... or I'm having an early midlife crisis. I'm open to either explanation.

I think part the frequent watching and re-watching is definitely down to the communal element though. It's something James and I both enjoy equally and now so does the rest of my family. And it gives us a talking point ... and leads to some fun times ...

I blogged some photos from the Justified end of season 3 party we had here  ... and I thought you might like to see the scrapbook page which followed:
Note: I blurred out the other faces because ... it's one thing to blog photos of yourself ...
wearing a felt 'tache while pretending to be Dickie Bennet ...
... but it's quite another thing to blog photos of innocent non-blogging [yet basically just as weird] family members.

Even the family member who brought her own plastic gun and Sheriff badge:

Right ... I'd best be off ... it's Wednesday after all and you know what that means ...
I'll see you on the other side of another episode or two of Justified ...

  2. Great title Julie - and a fun page - love the layering.

  3. Thanks ladies :-)

    Sarah - the punch is EK Success 'Slim edger Punch 'Round Binding Edge' - I've added it into the post now in case anyone else wanted to know too. :-)

  4. I love the picture of you with the 'stache!

  5. I have a funny feeling that the 'something special' might turn out to be a certain Deputy US Marshal with a soft, southern accent. Does it for me! :)
