Whatever, Colt… you’re just jealous of my mad Cribbage skillz.
Captain Hastings: [about Poirot] “Well, he’s always been middle-aged. Have you seen that photograph of him at his christening?”
Miss Lemon: [chuckling] “I know.”
Captain Hastings: “He looks as though he’s about to address a board meeting.”
As you mäy have noticed, I’ve been on a bit of a Poirot “kick” lately. We own a bunch of the movies on DVD, and then I loaded up my Netflix DVD queue with a bunch of the ones we don’t have.
Here’s a listing of my Netflix DVD activity since October:
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Cat Among the Pigeons
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Three Act Tragedy
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: The Mysterious Affair at Styles
Poirot: Vol. 1
Poirot: Vol. 2
Poirot: Vol. 3
Poirot: Vol. 4
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Super Sleuths
Poirot: Vol. 5
Poirot: Vol. 6
Poirot: Vol. 7
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Hallowe’en Party
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Appointment with Death
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Mrs. McGinty’s Dead
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Five Little Pigs
Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: After the Funeral
Oh, right, I loaded a bunch of movies into the queue after Beth recommended them, back around Halloween. Then I ended up reshuffling the queue around.
Turns out that Poirot: Vol. 8, 10, 11, and 12 are all listed as “Very Long Wait” and (presumably) 9 wasn’t available on the day when they were ready to send out my next DVD.
So… yeah… “And now for something completely different” as the kids say :-)
