Six days and counting….. But I really don’t want to talk about packing and moving. And since that’s pretty much all we worked on this week, that doesn’t leave a lot to write about. I do want to tell all of you how much I appreciate the kind words and acts of support that I’ve received from my online friends – see this post.
So, since I want to think-slash-write about anything but moving, let’s talk TV, shall we? Kevin and I finished last season of NCIS, which ended with a bang of a cliffhanger. We’re trying to catch up on the first few episodes of this season online, since my folks watch it every week.
Let’s see, what else? Revenge – Natalie and I are as hooked on this season as we were last season. I can’t decide if I want fake Amanda to survive her fall from Victoria’s balcony or not. I don’t like that she comes between Jack and Emily, but I guess she doesn’t deserve to die.
After meeting Captain Hook in last week’s episode, I have decided that I can forgive the producers of Once Upon a Time for killing off hot sheriff last season.
My guiltiest pleasure is Grey’s Anatomy, which I adore, but feel slightly guilty about watching, because it is definitely soapy. Anyone else watch this one?
My absolute favorite, Castle, was preempted for the last presidential debate, which I attempted to watch via online streaming. I didn’t last long. As far as Castle goes, I am adoring this season, and don’t think that Castle and Beckett being a couple has ruined anything.
I haven’t had very much time for reading, but I did manage to finish two books: The Human Factor by Graham Greene in print, and The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. by Nichole Bernier.
We’re not going to make it to church this morning – instead, I’m going to be packing up my kitchen. In the evening, we’re having Natalie’s friend Ian over for dinner and to watch Prometheus. If I have any time to read at all today – which isn’t likely – these are the books I’ll be dipping into:
~ Under the Dome by Stephen King – Yes, still. This thing is soooooooooo long!
~ Captivate by Carrie Jones – This one grabbed me right away, just like book one in the series.
~ Broken Harbor by Tana French – She is simply amazing. If we weren’t moving, this is the book I’d be spending every spare moment devouring.
~ Rainbow Valley by L.M. Montgomery – My comfort read.
~ Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – Soooooo good.
~ Abdication by Juliet Nicolson – Just started this one.
What are you reading, watching, or listening to these days?
