End of the Day

Today was odd. The Mister is on leave this week because we have finals and it's just weird to have him home when it's not a holiday. We didn't do much other than lounge, study, play Mario Kart, and cook the kids dinner.

Tonight, we watched Big Bang Theory and I watched Bones. I really enjoy both of those shows. BBT is so hilarious that it's a great show to watch when you just want to veg. I was also excited to see that Showtime is rerunning season three of Weeds on Monday nights to catch people up to when they begin airing season four. That's another show that I can't get enough of. We Netflix'ed seasons one and two and I don't think season three is out on DVD yet.

Also, I have started RA's May book, Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. We have some skeptics this month since Gaiman's books are a little...out there. I think it's a good thing to stretch your literary wings every once in a while though. Plus, isn't that the point of being in a book discussion group, to read books that you might not have picked up on your own? That's how I found Gaiman in the first place, in another book group. So far, I've read American Gods, Anansi Boys, and Stardust, which they made a movie out of and I have yet to see. I can't wait to see where Gaiman takes us in Neverwhere.

I just sat here and stared at the screen for five minutes so I think my brain is done for the night.


  1. My husband and I are addicted to Weeds (lol..that sounds funny).

    We watched Seasons 1 & 2 on Netflix and are waiting for Season 3, which comes on in June I believe.

    I'm waiting for Dexter Season 2!! I haven't read any more of the novels after the first one because I was afraid it would give away some of the plot.

  2. I've been catching up with series one of The Dresden Files recently. I love the book series.

    I enjoyed the two books by Gaiman that I've read. I definitely want to read more by him.

    I agree with you about book groups being an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and try something different. It makes for more interesting discussions, I think.

  3. Pam~~That does sound funny but I get ya.

    I'm caught up on Dexter Season 2 but haven't read any of the other books either. I'm not sure why.

    LF~~I've never seen The Dresden Files and have never read the books either. Hmm.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
