Lazy Sunday Thoughts Are Hopped Up On Sugar

Easter Greetings! I put on my Easter bonnet (not really) today for much feasting. I had two dinners to attend, one I put on myself. It was nice though a little hectic, especially since the Girl picked up a virus.

I didn’t finish one book this week. This is getting a bit ridiculous. I’m nearly done The Left Hand of Darkness, though I don’t really know what’s going on. Seems like a lot of stuff leading up to a Shackleton Expedition. I’m also reading Tender is the Night for Book Club. I tried to listen to Ready Player One but it’s not for me.

I did watch the movie version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Wow, violent! I’m not sure what to make of it. I really liked the Salander chick, even if she scares me. Christopher Plummer is always good. Craig is a much better Bond.

I’m not sure which Friday night show I like more, Grimm or Fringe. Both are in a battle for weirdness. Fringe’s theme song should be Everybody Hurts because every week someone is broken hearted. This week it was Lincoln Lee. I much prefer Agent Lincoln Lee to Captain Lincoln Lee. If you didn’t see it, I won’t spoil it for you. Looks like he’s lined up to fall for Fauxlivia/Kim Possible. He’s too good for her. Why doesn’t Astrid ever get a love interest?

I caught the second half of the first episode of Season 2 of Downton Abbey because my DVR messed up. So I have no idea why Mr Bates left. Anyone want to enlighten me?

I’m afraid my week wasn’t very bookish. Oh well, what can I do.

  1. Bates left because Vera threatened to tell everyone that Mary slept with the Turkish diplomat if he didn't. I don't know why; her only motivation in life seems to be to make him miserable.

    I love Grimm! My favorite new show of the season.

    1. Oh...How did Vera know about Mary?

    2. O'Brien told her -- I think just to try to get rid of Mr. Bates, but she didn't know Vera would threaten to expose the family's secret.

  3. Cute Cartoon. Hope your week is a good one, with some time for books --sometimes that is hard to make happen.

  4. I watched Fringe from two weeks ago tonight and the latest Grimm. I love these two shows though Grimm needs to move the metaplot along a bit more. Fringe is getting awesome! The only show I like more right now is Awake. Do you watch that one?

    1. I saw Awake a couple of times. I think I have to watch it a bit more to get into it.

  6. I used to LOVE Fringe so so so so much. Alas, I got out of the loop and it's hard to get looped back in!

  8. Sorry your kiddo got a virus. That would suck a bit of the fun out of Easter. Our holiday was soooo quiet, but very pleasant. We never did have big family Easter gatherings but I'm starting to yearn for little ones so I can hide some eggs, dress them in Easter outfits and take a million photos. I hope someday my son and DIL will oblige. :)

    1. Luckily, she wasn't horribly sick until Monday. She's getting better now. My husband has a huge family and they keep multiplying.
