So Brazil is fast approaching.

Inevitably I spend a lot of time kicking my heels in Brazil as the "holiday" is more about Lu spending time with her family than actually doing stuff - and I can only spend so many hours per day in a Brazilian shopping centre - so my search for TV to download has started, a little late perhaps based on torrents vs. time to download, oops. Suffice to say my laptop* and an Internet connection save my life while I'm there, although I do enjoy spending *some* time with Lu's family ;-)

*This means running the gauntlet with customs again, as technically I'm a resident, and have to pay tax on any goods worth a total of US$500 or more. I'm going to be taking both a laptop and the SLR camera this time.

Anyway, I use my enforced TV time to revisit things I've missed, or ought to give a second chance.

I'd already downloaded several seasons of Scrubs, although on reflection I'm not sure I will like it, even though individual random episodes tend to make me giggle.

During last year's Christmas-in-Brazil I watched two seasons of Supernatural, so I've downloaded some of season 3, and ought to catch up with the rest. I'm assuming that season 3 has finished (?).

Following a conversation with Ana over IM this morning I've also been inspired to try House (also inspired by daylight_broke), Family Guy (I've watched one or two episodes before, but it didn't feel like my thing. Second try time), and Ghost Whisperer (no idea about this).

No doubt I'll end up being really busy and not have a chance to watch anything, or just get all apathetic about it. There's a couple of books I need to read also.

Perhaps I should get a second battery for the laptop for the plane as much as anything else. Although that means having to carry my laptop in a laptop bag as hand luggage, and is that a good or bad idea from the customs point-of-view? Hum. Plus do I take both my work and personal laptop. The former being a nice large-ish 15", versus the latter being an annoying but conveniently small 10".
