Downton Abbey ate up most of the husband's and my evenings the last two weeks. I want to be the Dowager Countess -- or perhaps Lady Mary. And now I'm sad I have to wait a year before it's back on. I haven't felt that bereft after a television show's season ending since the last episode of Sons of Anarchy.
What should we be watching now?
I remain in a reading funk. I'm reading, but none of it is very good. Unlike Michelle, I don't think YA fiction is my cup of tea any more. I will always love my old favorites -- in fact, the reading funk has gotten bad enough to make me think about rereading L.M. Montgomery -- but new YA stuff just makes me feel old. I find myself identifying with the parents or wanting to give the main characters stern lectures about not being a twit (see: Looking for Alaska).
Any suggestions? Good nonfiction? Adult literature that is neither too trashy nor too serious?
I wear black heels at least once a week to work. My last pair were at least two years old, scuffed and with the heels wore down to the pins. I spent three months thinking, "Damn, I need new shoes," every time I put them on before finally throwing them in the trash to force myself to buy a new pair. I went out this weekend to do that and came home with this pair from Aldo --- and three new shirts, a bright pink shirt dress, a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of purple cropped jeans (on sale for $7). I'm thinking of going back and buying a pair of flat brown riding boots.
I don't shop often, but when I do, I binge.
What randomness is keeping you busy?
