Loopty Loo


Ok, this is one of those post that just kind of hits on a little bit of everything. All the loose bits rolling around in my brain that I have been meaning to share, and just haven't. I don't know if this is a good thing for you dear reader, but I need to close these open loops in my brain and move on, so here we go.
First: New Blogs in the Hood; My dear sis Jemimah and my oldest childhood friend Tracy have finally thrown their blogging hats into the ring (the crowd cheers! Hurrah!) and I am very excited to have them out there in Internetland, posting away, since both of them live entirely too far away for comfort. I am so glad to have a way to stay connected and informed and to be given the chance to peek in on their lives from afar. Also, if you have never been over to Curious Sofa Diaries or to The Pixie Wood, you should. Big fun.
Second: The New Woman in My Bedroom; Nathan is obsessed with Julia Child. It started with her first book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking , which then to the second book, and now the third book, and THE COMPLETE DVD SET ( I think there are 9 in all?) Anyway, Julia goes to bed with us every night these days, and I go to sleep hearing her werbly wobbly voice explaining how to prepare things like "bouillabaisse." Makes for some interesting dreams I promise. Also, his new found Julia- bread techniques has not done much to reduce my waistline. 'Sigh.' For more Julia fun you can go here and tour her kitchen - pretty nifty even for a non-cook like me.

Third : Some Good TV; If you are like us and always on the hunt for a good new TV show then check out The Riches on FX on Monday nights. We are still holding our breath, hoping for the return of Studio 60 on any night and time, but we have happily discovered The Riches in the mean time. FX dramas tend to be a little too dark for us and we feel like we need a shower after watching, so we didn't hold out much hope for their latest venture. But this show seems to be a little lighter on it's toes (and I say that in comparison to such lovely treats as Dirt and NipTuck,) and has some great family/redemption themes that get your heart early on.

Last: Look what I bought and loved; Watch it for the houses alone. It's adorable and a great clean-the-house-while-it-plays movie. Will go into heavy rotation around here I am sure!!

  4. I must say I'm a little concerned for you two -- Studio 60?? We hated that show! Thirty Rock is much better. Course we aren't really into drama around here, except for Heroes and Lost.
