I realized I hadn't blogged in a few days. It kind of slipped to the back of my mind. Well, here's some of the stuff that's been going on with me/us:
I'd been remiss about watching my Netflix movies, in particular Step Up (starring Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum - Who? Right.) Actually, you may remember that Jenna dated Justin Timberlake for a while, and was one of his dancers. I felt like it was time to get some new movies, so we watched this one. It wasn't great but not horrible either. It's a good one to watch with your significant other/friends because you'll have fun accurately predicting most of the movie based on the first 19 minutes. Then, at the 1 hr 30 min mark, you can accurately predict the ending.
I've also been working on a number of knitting projects. I'm finishing up a capelet for my cousin, and a scarf with a fun pattern and a hat are also in progress. Hopefully I'll have pictures of everything up within a week.
I also think Big Love has spoiled me for most television. After seeing how great that show is, how much care its writers took to develop the characters and create a convincing fictional world, I just can't swallow network TV* -- CBS's Monday night lineup, in particular. Okay, it was only The Big Bang Theory that sent me to the other room. But still. I hope that piece of dreck is off the airwaves soon.
*With the exception of The Office, Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy (which I have to watch on ABC.com because it conflicts with The Office.) I especially like the way they handled Jim and Pam's new relationship on The Office...not too mushy, kind of subversive and clever. That could sum up the whole show, in fact.
