Thursday Thoughts

Right now I am typing and watching snow steadily fall out the window. Ugh. I know. I live in Pittsburgh. But the older I get, the more I loathe winter and the cold/snow/slush/salt. We're supposed to get a lot of snow over the weekend, and maybe some ice, which means we won't go out because it's very difficult to maneuver the wheelchair through snow/slush/ice. Also, SP won't want to clear the walkway and driveway multiple times! It's also supposed to get pretty darn cold. I think last night the evening news said a high of 14 next Monday? Brrrrr.

Last Saturday was the day we finally saw Hamilton. We both went in a little skeptical, as did our friends S & R. Would it really be so amazing? Worthy of all the hype? The crazy ticket rules and prices and such? Our answer: yes. I'm not sure it's our favorite show ever, but we'd definitely go again. And again. We've been listening to the soundtrack a lot since Saturday. It's a good thing we both really like the soundtrack!

SP & I enjoyed this article and have been noticing and saying the same things for years.

What We're Eating:

  • Tomato Soup & Macaroni & Cheese
  • Sloppy Joes
  • Dessert: whatever we find in the house

What We're Watching:

  • We finished Killing Eve and really liked the show. Bring on Season 2 (in April).
  • Victoria is back on PBS. 
  • True Detective is back on HBO. So far Season 3 is pretty darn good. Or maybe it's that Mahershala Ali is that good. If you haven't seen Moonlight, you should. And even if you dislike Marvel Comics, he's excellent as Cottonmouth in Luke Cage Season 1.
  • A new season of Worst Cooks is underway. As usual, we wonder how the contestants are so clueless in the kitchen. It's as if they never had to make a slice of toast. Is it possible to have never had to make a piece of toast? 
  • We started watching The Passage, a new TV show. It's based on The Passage, which is Book 1 of the trilogy by Justin Cronin. We really enjoyed the books. The first episode was pretty good and it sent us both into research mode to refresh our memories of what happened in the books. It's been a while since we read them, especially the first one, which came out in 2010. So 8 years since we read The Passage.
  • The Punisher's new season comes out tomorrow on Netflix. 

What I'm Reading:

  • The Reckoning by John Grisham.
  • The magazine pile is down to 1 Bon Appetit, 1 Pittsburgh Magazine, and 3 Smithsonian magazines.
