TV Viewing and Other Midweek Drudgery

Dave and I are tearing through "The Good Wife." What a great show! We watch two episodes a night, at least. Kalinda is our newest super hero -- who needs Batman when you have Kalinda? (You have to say her name in a kind of booming, super-hero voice.) I took to this show much more readily than "Dexter" or "Game of Thrones."

Netflix has disappointed us on many levels, but at least they've given us "The Good Wife," "Breaking Bad" and "House of Cards."

Over the weekend, when Dave suggested we watch "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," I made him a deal -- I'll watch "Anchorman," I said, if you agree to watch "Rosemary's Baby." (I'm not normally a fan of horror movies, but I do love old classics. I hadn't seen "Rosemary" in years and Dave had never seen it.) So he agreed, and we watched "Rosemary" on Monday night. It's still a great movie, and Ruth Gordon -- with her crazy colorful '60s outfits -- steals the show.

Aside from TV, there's not much excitement around here. Monday was a holiday, and we took Olga to the park together and had coffee at the Lido cafe on the Serpentine. That was our major outing.

Now work has resumed. I'm trying to track down some long-overdue library books before the end of the school year, in just a few weeks. I spent yesterday afternoon e-mailing students with delinquent accounts. We'll see if it's productive!

  1. I haven't watched any of those shows. None.
    What's wrong with me?

  2. So glad you are enjoying The Good Wife. I do love that show and I couldn't agree more about Kalinda. She is the ultimate super woman.

  3. I haven't seen any of those show either.

    Kind of strange that while we were on vacation in Mexico last week we had access to TVs and Dish but never turned on any of the TVs once. Not once. We didn't miss anything as far as I can tell.

    I've heard good things about the Good Wife.

  4. What a great life.

    I love Rosemary's Baby. Creepy as hell - ALL of them. Fabulous outfits and 60s NYC. Very cool.

    Don't forge to watch West Side Story!

  5. If the Braves don't improve I'm going to be forced to start watching some of these shows everyone talks about :)
